What a fantastic story! The questions that Carroll makes you ponder will have you considering this book long after THE END. I've been chatting up my hubby for days, driving him crazy with all of my "what if" scenerios. Thanks for a great read.

Kathryn Kelly must learn to face her fear of being ridiculed and rejected in order to survive. She has been chosen to record a monumental event: The world is changing, and Earth will never be the same.
Gemini Rising - Louann Carroll

A fascinating take on one possible future, and past, for Earth and her inhabitants. This story explains the reason(s) for the repeated demise of cultures that seemed to be at the pinnacle, only to suddenly be snuffed out, for no known reason. Some were explained by the different Ice Ages, but couldn't explain what caused such radical atmospheric shifts as to create an Ice Age.

The story follows three main characters. A mother, Kate, and her 13 year old son Ryan, and
I had high hopes for this book when I read the back cover blurb, thinking that this would be a really great futuristic/Science Fiction romance. Sadly, the book didn't live up to the excitement generated on the back cover for me.

First of all, it seemed to me that the heroine, Kate, did nothing but cry for the first two thirds of the book, something I found very annoying. A few episodes I could understand, but it just seemed like she had to cry about everything, all the time. I had also hoped that

This is a fabulous book. Ms. Carroll’s story takes place in one of the most beautiful areas of Arizona – Sedona. I have had the opportunity to visit Sedona, and reading Ms. Carroll’s book brought me right back to that experience. She is hands down one of the best sensorial writers. I felt like I was there with the characters experiencing the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of the desert and the beautiful world that surrounds us, but don’t get too attached, because the world as we know it is ab ...more

The author paints an eerie and descriptive picture of the coming apocalypse and its devastating effects on earth. It didn't take me long to finish this book, as I wanted to know how Kate and Ryan Kelly, a Recorder of the event and her Healer son, forge a new life in the unknown new world. If you like stories about the apocalypse, this is a good one!

The author paints a picture with vivid imagery and strong emotion of pre and post apocalyptic Earth after a planet, scheduled to return every six thousand years, comes too close to the world.
