Slivers Of Life
This is the third book I’ve read from S. Rose. I was hooked by the end of her first novel. Her style of writing is such an extraordinary gift, nourishing the very stories she tells. “Song of the Manatee: Children of Quaezar” is the second book in a series. This story carries readers on a journey through a futuristic world in the year 2199.
Rose dazzles readers with tales of time warps, a love for nature, and some deep themes dealing with the age-old battle between good and evil. An all intrusive government has gained full control of the world by 2199, and when paleontologist Michael Black gets too close to secrets that government wishes to keep hidden, he—along with his daughter Swan—vanishes, leaving the family matriarch to deal with the darkness that only an all-knowing government can dish up.
The story itself is fantastic, fascinating, and at times mind-blowing. Rose has done her research in crafting this story, bringing the characters and scenes to life in ways that only true storytellers can. I would suggest a read of the first book in the series, “Song of the Manatee: Aria of Light,” before taking up with this one—though this book truly does stand on its own. This is a wonderful story by an author with whom everybody should become familiar.
