About the book:
500 YEARS IN THE FUTURE, EARTH IS A PARADISE... WITHOUT US.
The Earth was dying,
and only the Erta could save it. Created to be genetically superior,
hyper-intelligent and unburdened by the full range of human emotions, they

faced with a dilemma—if they reintroduce the rebellious and violent Homo
sapiens, all of their work could be undone.
They decide to raise

But the quiet and
clinical Ima finds that there is more to raising a human than she had expected;
and there is more to humanity’s history than she has been told.

fiction books strive to do: imagines the future and our place on it, while
commentating on our present. “
