The blurb for “Gem” as well as the song that inspired it!
From the bestselling author of Lucent Sylph comes a new story about a friendship in an unlikely place: between the child savior of a dying planet and his handler.
The planet of Topha is breaking into pieces and the next core earthquake will crack the planet into oblivion.
But God has sent generations of Omnicrons: children born with advanced brain abilities, telepathy and telekinesis – children who will be called upon to literally hold the planet together with the power of their minds. Few Omnicrons survive the core quake.
Twenty-five-year-old Soleil is hired to be a motherly caretaker for this year’s Omnicron, the precocious and brooding eleven-year-old named Gem. She finds herself drawn to the doomed child. Will Gem survive the task ahead of him? Can Soleil heal his heart in the meantime?
