Reviewed by Sherri Fulmer Moorer for Readers' Favorite Lost Souls by Penny de Byl is a thrilling novel about what happens when man decides to play with creation. The future proves that man's survival depends on venturing into outer space, and Biogen Corporation has found just the place to do it: Titan, a moon of Saturn. When Biogen Corporation decides to launch an experiment on survival and procreation through scientific means in Antarctica, it seems a logical step - until several donors for In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) die at the moment of their child's birth. Australian police are stumped as they investigate spontaneous deaths. Meanwhile, the carefully selected research team faces an accident traveling to the Antarctic site that causes the loss of valuable specimens, forcing the doctors to modify the reproductive element of their experiment in order to save a project with fierce international competition. Lost Souls is a perfect mix of my three favorite genres: science fiction, mystery, and religious/inspiration. Penny de Byl does an excellent job balancing the scientific experiments in Antarctica with the unfolding investigation in Sydney. It's a fast paced, thrilling read that will keep you on the edge of your seat with perfect twists and turns to keep the plot moving. While the plot contains religious overtones, it isn't "preachy" and is fair and balanced in presenting religious views mixed with the science and situations presented. Lost Souls is an excellent read that I highly recommend to anybody that likes science fiction or mystery, as it's wonderfully balanced and does a great job of moving between the science fiction and mystery story unfolding at both sites. The plot flows smoothly and works together to form an exciting picture at the end, which is quite a surprise. Give Lost Souls a read - you won't be disappointed!

Lost Souls is an engaging read that weaves together an intelligent design of science and fiction. Author Penny De Byl’s story is a fascinating and believable look at what could be. The fictional element is captivating while the science behind it is illuminating. In her story Penny brings the positive and the destructive possibilities of technology to life. When a team sets out to the Antarctic, to Biojein, to explore the greatest experiment in medicine, technology and sustainability they will face more than they bargained for.  Penny’s story resonates on more than one plane. Her ability to bring the story to life is remarkable. The characters, dialogue and plot are gripping, taking your imagination on a ride you won’t soon forget. There is spirituality, science, death, survival, birth, love, suspense, and hope. I highly recommend it!

Lost Souls is simply gripping and captivating:  “Lost Souls: Book One of the Disciples of Cassini Trilogy” by Author Penny de Byl is simply an astounding read that has captivated my mind and imagination for nights on end. In many ways “Lost Souls” will literally place you in the center of Antarctic where Main Character Dr. Marcela Warrick takes center stage with her research that turns into a chilling thriller of epic proportion. A killing spree unfolding on the main land places Detective Zoe Moore into the mix where time and answers are quickly running out. In short this is simply a gripping on the edge of your seat thrill ride that is not for the faint of heart. I thought that Author Penny de Byl’s writing style is fast paced making for a quick read that most if not all can enjoy.  In short words to describe this book for me are: Gripping, Captivating, Thrilling and Suspenseful in a well-written manner that will leave you wanting more. 5 Stars and cant wait to get my hands on the next book.
