Red Genesis has all the elements of an excellent science fiction thriller. I was expecting a traditional structure, but Kailin Gow hit it out of the ball park with an unique narrative told from the view of girl who has never been out of the Shelter. There were so many twists which ended up in some major turns. No spoilers here. I was not expecting the ending. Can't wait to read the next books.

I was so excited to get a copy of this title when it came out. But sadly that excitement was short lived. This book suffers from the same thing a lot of indie and self pub books suffer from....bad editing. The book starts out with weird word choices and bad formatting. And it just doesn't get any better. It reminded me of an episode of Fallout Shelter to start with. With a girl being left alone in some kind of vault her mother leaves her there and now she's all alone. So this 13 year old who was ...more

Red Genesis: By Kailin Gow
I really did enjoy Red Genesis by Kailin Gow. It does take a minute to get into the book; but once you are in, you are all in because you don't want to miss the happenings that are going on in the story pages. Evie a young child growing up on Mars and has been told that the monsters have taken over and that her father was killed by them several years ago. The technology that is brought from the old country and left on Mars is

Red Genesis by Kailin Gow entertains her readers with the concept of being the only survivor on a second earth and the care Evie must make to preserve and protect the last of the knowledge that lead them to this desolate place. This earth once green and plush is now barren with no oxygen left and now she must surface to fix her water supply. Will she be able to find the supplies she needs, fix her water pipes, and avoid the monsters her parents couldn't even evade?

Kind of confusing in some parts but still not a bad read!

Im kind of torn on this book. I like the storyline but I was also somewhat confused by the references to monsters but not really having a physical description of the monsters. As the story goes on I realized it was more internal monsters than actual physical beings. Maybe others will catch on to that quicker than me. Its an interesting story, Im sure the younger generation will enjoy the new world the author has created. Even though the

A good start

This is a story of Evie on New Earth, an eighteen year old who is all alone after her mom sets out years earlier to find more supplies and doesn't return. This is story of her survival along the way. I enjoyed the story. Please note that this is a cliffhanger.

Hi Everyone!

I know I am the author commenting on my own book, Red Genesis, here, but just wanted to let you know that Red Genesis is an allegory of "Genesis", which is a biblical reference.

This book may be considered Christian Fantasy and Science Fiction like The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings, Chronicles of Narnia, and even Wrinkle in Time.

It is also very positive, inspirational, and about hope.

I wrote this story because of the sadness and depression some of my friends and acquaintances
