Overview

What would you give to be young again?

Lilith Davidson has nothing to lose. Diagnosed with terminal cancer, her only hope for survival rests in an experimental longevity serum she herself helped to develop using an intuitive-based protocol known as remote viewing.

She never dreamed the treatment could be so wildly effective... nor did she expect its unusual side effect.

Now, as Lilith and the other eleven Methuselah Pioneers struggle to embrace the serum's gift, powerful forces condemn their miracle cure as a violation of life's natural order and threaten their lives. Will the treatment help humanity or tear society apart?

Set in the near future, Fendley's (Solar Lullaby) book seeks to see what would happen if a treatment were to be found that reverses aging. The Methuselah Pioneers, a group of 12, have spent the past 15 years developing a longevity serum to cure terminal diseases. They are the first participants in a medical trial, and much to everyone's surprise, it has a 100 percent success rate. However, there is a considerable side effect that will challenge the beliefs and identities of many. When the rest of the world hears about what has happened, will the group be able to survive the scrutiny? Following the characters for a year from the beginning of the treatment to the first anniversary, Fendley focuses the plot on her characters and their actions. While the broader scenario of what would happen societally is touched upon, it is the small, intimate, intertwining groups of the Pioneers, their families, and their friends that serve to highlight the overall what-if question. VERDICT This book will challenge and entertain readers who enjoy a hearty dose of philosophical-based sf.—Laura Hiatt, Fort Collins, CO
