Wow. I just turned the final page of this book and literally said, "No!" I can't wait for the third book.

This book continues all the mysteries of the first. The stories are somehow linked together, but we don't know how yet. A little boy is kidnapped, a Chinese paleoarchaeologist sees things in an ancient Antarctic lake that can't possible exist, a virus is spreading, in Egypt, three scientists are coming to the conclusion that one of the pharoahs was not what he seemed, and a meteor storm hits China as business people are there to see Biobots (read the book).

One story not mentioned in this one was the man speaking about paranormal powers, such as the "sixth sense". I wonder if that has any implications for the story as a whole.

All these things are happening at the same time, but different characters are involved. How is it all going to come together when there does not seem to be a person at the center of all of it? Or is the President's Chief of Staff involved? The President knows more than he has told anyone, except maybe the Chinese.

One of the main themes seems to be: What does it mean to be human? Is 98% human DNA enough? What if someone has more than 46 chromosomes? Is someone human if the "self" gene is removed? And how is this all connected to prehistoric dinosaurs and mammals that show up where and when they shouldn't?

This is an awesome book. I can't wait for Book 3 to get the answers. I have a feeling they will be life-altering for the people of planet Earth in the book, but will they be for the better or for the worse? I need to know!

In his plot-driven book the author, B.C. Chase, presents a disjointed world. The scenes cut from one place to another in a quick movie camera shot, in a sharp manner that adds to the sense of suspense: From Cognitive LifeScience, Laboratory G, to 24 Oakland Street to StarLine Paradeisia Hotal to an airplane flight to Lake Vostok to Shanghai. In the same manner his characters serve a single purpose: to become pieces, with little depth, in his puzzle. An unsettling secrecy gives its tone from the very beginning: "The cameras are motion activated... This thing I saw, it's obviously moving from its own power--fast. I think I can make out two legs, two arms and a head."

And that, I think, is the thrill of Paradeisia: to find out who kidnapped little Jeffery Riley, for what purpose, and can he be recovered in time, before this sinister overarching plan comes to full fruition: "China has already been in the designer babies business for a long time now... Genetically engineered workers would be good for at least forty years... need nothing more than nourishment and seven hours of sleep."

The scientific aspects of the story are well researched, which helps the reader to accept the premise of producing `Designer babies'. The writing style reminded me a little of Jurassic Park, with one exception: In Jurassic Park, the was a moral dilemma that arched over the problem of survival. Here, despite assurances such as, ""Gary, I truly appreciate the work you're doing here. I know you're kind of in the dark about its purpose, but I can assure you it's of prime importance to the nation," the reader grasps intuitively that it is morally wrong to use designer babies the same way you would use machines.

Kansas born author B.C.Chase impressed at a very young age with his musical skills, but his imagination for writing came from his living in Turkey (his parents were missionaries) and his exposure there to the magic of computer science. Not only was he able to embrace the computer with his passion for music, orchestrating his own compositions, but his other thread of energy grew form that time frame - his fascination with the art of writing. His life continued to expand with a transfer to live in Germany for his education and there his curiosity about World War II thrived: his first symphony and his first book were born in that time period. Ever on the move he took up residence in Florida, married and continued to write, adding anthropology studies to his already full plate. He continues to compose music, write theatrical dramatizations of the birth of Christ and begin his spin on genetic engineering and technothrillers. All this before the age of 30!

Chase's style is displayed in the very first page of his short novel: he places us in Paradeisia Hospital with a conversation about surveillance cameras picking up movement form quasi-real `sightings'. And the book jumps into the major story by placing the reader in the Cognitive LifeScience Corporation, Laboratory G where the wily wheelchair confined Abael Fielder encounters Dr. Gary Riley carrying a container with a progeric brain inside, and after Abael insists on holding the brain, Gary slices it and places it in the robotic analyzing machine for dissection of the gene expression in each area of the dissected brain, capturing data with digital microscopes and photographs for storage in a computer for the purpose of further analysis by scientists, all for the project `Preseption', a secretive program of importance to national security.
