A dazzling, thought provoking, combination of faith versus secular beliefs, science fiction, spiritual warfare, action adventure and romance.

Yesterday’s gone. Tomorrow is a distant hope. Now means everything…

Nya struggled to believe her accomplishment. Nearly a decade’s work was all coming together. This was her moment. The Nobel Prize would be hers for the taking. Her work was going to change the face of bio-science forever.

The only problem was someone with an exceptionally dark desire wanted to twist her work for sinister purposes that would change the face of life on earth forever. And he was prepared to go to any lengths to get it.

Thus began a chain of startling events that would force Nya to place her trust in an unknown man whom she discovered from archived news reports … had died years ago.

Journey with Nya, a believer, as her faith is tested. Join Isaac, a non-believer, who questions his existence. Discover how they face death together in a remarkable adventure. An emotionally rich, adventure story which will delight those who quest personally challenging and thought provoking reads.


Almost three months of waiting for this book to arrive, imagine my agony. It didn’t even reach me smoothly because my mom didn’t tell me she got the book already. If we hadn’t talked about me going to the post office, she wouldn’t really bother telling me that she got the book eh? Haha.

Now for the book, I’ve first read its predecessor, Elijah Hael: The Last Judgement. That book wasn’t one of my favorites and I had my fair share of dull moments with it. But its ending totally piqued my attention which pushed me into reading the next book of this series, which is this book. But due to some circumstances, I just managed to read it now.

I must say that this story is quite different from what I anticipated. It’s even way better. This book is just an average read and you will just finish it in a day or even just half a day, and in my case, it’s more or less half a day. You see, this book is so easy to finish because it comprises sooooo many thrilling and action-filled scenes. And mind you, it started as early as its first few pages. That intense eh? 

It says here that you can read it without having to read its first book, but I suggest that you should read  Elijah Hael: The Last Judgement first. Though all was properly explained in The Genetic Code, nothing could beat the understanding you’ll find when you read its predecessor first. It will answer all your questions like how did Elijah become an Angel, how he died and a lot more. And I highly recommend this book to everyone, especially those people who have a hard time understanding their faith. 

I’ve been drawn to this book as early as I started reading it. Though, I frankly admit that I skipped a line or two. Well, let’s say that I was so eager to read the exciting part eh, haha. But honestly, I’ve never been a fan of books with lots of explanations. So yeah, that explains the four-star rating above.

Just like its first book, this book also uses very easy to grasp terms so no need to worry your pretty little head on the “out of this world” terms to consult on your hand-dandy dictionary. And you know what’s the other catch? Well, this book also has fewer characters which are very easy to keep track of.

Just because I’ve given this book a four-star rating, nothing can still beat a book that doesn’t just entertain you but also leaves you a thought to live through.
