Title: The Genesis Project
Series: New Earth #1
Author: Tigris Eden

Genre: Sci-Fi erotic romance
Now extinct, humans are a thing of the past. The people of New Earth won’t acknowledge their hand in their eradication, but they have benefited from it. Dr. Vaggo Blackmore has found the answer, he’s restored his races way of life- sustenance through farming. The one thing that will give them back their long lives….. Blood, human blood.
Biologically engineered in a lab, Genesis Blackmore has always been different. Her father has told her it’s due to her enhancements, the Federated Council sees her as a genetic mutation; and her fellow peers see her as the shiny new toy. Gen has had better days.
Everyone on New Earth has milky white skin, platinum blonde hair, and electric blue eyes. It’s the norm. Genesis’ glossy, black hair, ice blue eyes ringed by gold, would have almost made her socially acceptable- if it wasn’t for her golden skin and blue, gold veins. In a sea of milky white she alone is the dark anomaly.
All Pars get their life’s nourishment through blood plasma. All Pars find their match through the tasting. Gen can do neither, forbidden by her father to do so. She can neither taste, nor be tasted. Something that’s never bothered her until now.

An additional 30K added to the short story that originally appeared in Romantic Tales: Bedtime Stories Season One.
Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.
The characters in this tale were pretty much in 2 groups. Those who played a major role in the story were well developed. You got to know who they were, if not necessarily much about their past. The rest of the cast remained primarily names on paper.
Overall, this story definitely introduces the reader to Eden’s new series, acquainting them with the intricacies of the world. I am quite intrigued as to where the story goes from here & to see who ends up with whom.
