The Lez Review: "Recombinant Love" by K'Anne Meinel

Written by 

Recombinant Love


While hiking with her best friend in the Arizona desert, Ryley Graham is surprised by a strange and deafening noise. Then an intense light ... When she wakes up, she is aboard a spaceship, 510 years later. What happened?

Here is a new book that I suggest you discover: "Recombinant Love" by K'Anne Meinel. No worries, even if you don't like sci-fi books, this one will fascinate you. It's not a sci-fi story with super weird stuff. The story is captivating. You follow a lost woman who has to adapt to her new life in an unknown world.

After being kidnapped in the middle of the desert, Ryley is confused. She is in a spaceship and 510 years later. But little by little, she begins to accept that she can never go back to Earth 2015, and she begins to contribute with her own unique knowledge and skills.

She meets a woman named Mercédès, half human and half android. This one is struggling to understand her human side and the odd feelings she is developing for Ryley.

Learning about love, and learning to love will be huge challenges as Ryley and Mercédès begin to forge a future. What impact will it have when they discover the real reason Ryley was taken in the first place?

The work of the author is remarkable. At the beginning of the book, it's true that we can be a bit lost. There are many characters who are introduced. But very quickly, "Recombinant Love" becomes exciting. The descriptions of the spaceship, the characters and the world they're living in are fantastic.
