Al eeuwenlang verhalen de legendes van de Caiyah-indianen over de Gouden Mensen, die ooit naar de aarde zullen terugkeren. Dat moment lijkt aangebroken als Yute Nahedeh de ontdekking van de eeuw doet: een klein embryo in de schoot van een 25.000 jaar oude Neanderthaler vrouw, perfect geconserveerd in het ijs.

On an archaeological dig on the Artic tundra, a scientist makes the discovery of a lifetime: In the womb of a 25,000 year Neanderthal woman whose body has been miraculously preserved lies an embryo that by some miracle still has the spark of life. He implants it into a surrogate mother & a baby Neanderthal, Ember, is born.
As Ember grows up, she struggles to understand why she is so different & to know the purpose behind her extraordinary abilities. But as she begins to uncover the answers, a force with it's own claim on her destiny re- enters her life.....
I really enjoyed this story! As improbable as it is (let's call it archaeological fantasy shall we?) it's a fascinating thought. The story plods along in places & speeds up in others. Mark's characters are vivid, although I really didn't like Yute just because he's so selfish & really quite thoughtless in places. I mean, I get it, who wouldn't want the chance to study a real live Neanderthal but come on! Spose that's why it's fiction! But yeah, Yute, not my favourite although...Nah I'm not going to give the story away!! The writing was clean, not wordy & Mark's imagery was vivid too. I could clearly see the forest & the waterfall in my mind. All in all a good read :O)

You don't have to believe five impossible things before breakfast in order to enjoy this book -- you only have to grant author Mark Canter one teensy little fudge in what we now think we know about human reproduction and the border between life and death. If you give him that inch, he will carry you off on an adventure that crosses more than miles.

When paleontologist Yute Nahadeh discovers the body of a Neanderthal woman in an Alaskan ice cave, he is understandably excited about the find. But when he discovers a viable embryo in the preserved-but-not-frozen tissue, he grabs at the incredible opportunity to bring the tiny collection of cells to fruition as a living, breathing link to the stone-age era he has studied all his life.

Predictably, not everything turns out according to his plan. Whisked out of his control by her surrogate mother, Ember grows into young womanhood knowing she is different from everyone around her. Her own search to find her people -- about whom she knows nothing -- leads her and ultimately the people she loves into deadly peril, and it will take everything she has ever learned or sensed to survive.

This is one helluva good book. The characters are crisp and real -- from the confused young woman Ember grows into, to the morally ambiguous Nahadeh, to the Native American couple who reared her and the Native community into which Ember struggles to fit, they breathe on every page.

Early in the book, Canter sets up the conflict that will come to a heart-pounding conclusion 500-some pages down the road. If the villain of the piece -- a mining company intent on extracting gold from Native lands, regardless of the environmental cost -- is less than original in concept, it is at least well presented.

This is a book to be devoured in as few sittings as possible. Set aside your conception of what is "real" and what is "scientifically possible", and hang on for an amazing ride. ( )

Found this when I was young. An doctor take a still viable embryo dating from a prehistoric time and implant it into a surrogate mother. The daughter born of this is different in physiology and psychology. It's her tale. ( )
