'Enthralling from the opening line.' AUREALIS
The Earth was dying, and only the Erta could save it. Created to be genetically superior, hyper-intelligent and unburdened by human emotion, they succeeded by removing the cause: humans.
Now they face a dilemma: if they reintroduce Homo sapiens, all of their work could be undone.
They decide to raise one human: a single child will decide its species' fate. But the quiet and clinical Ima finds that there is more to raising a human than she had expected; and more to humanity's history than she has been told.
