Does it have to cost the Earth to find out who we really are?


Shortly before the fall of Atlantis, genetic engineers create three new prototypes, Kam, Mel and Leon, the first humans to have blue eyes and shapeshifting capabilities. 

With climatic conditions on Earth spinning rapidly out of control, it seems the future of Atlantean civilization depends entirely on whether the three test subjects can find a way to work together to solve the deepening crisis. 

But first they need to find each other.

Sarah's new book, 'CHAMELEON', a YA title also in the cli-fi genre about three genetically engineered humans, came out on 28th June 2020. It is set during the fall of Atlantis, which Sarah believes was destroyed during an earlier period of intense climate change.

A truly wide-ranging adventure in time and space focussing on 3 intriguingly different characters and their roles and inter-relationships. The book also opens a window on the deep history of human civilisation and on how that history might help in our present climate dilemma and in its possible solution.
