Plot

Ancestor follows PJ Colding as he and his crew are tasked with transporting a team of scientists to a remote snow covered landscape to finish their project: to recreate the ancestor of all humanity in order to provide life-saving organs that would be compatible with all people. As a snow storm threatens to trap them on the island, the scientists' succeed beyond their wildest expectations. The result, however, might just bring humanity to extinction.

Reception

Critical reception for the 2010 re-release of Ancestor has been positive, with Nerdist writing "It’s like Michael Crichton and Stephen King had a fabulous, bouncing baby". The Guardian criticized the prose and characterisation as "rudimentary" but praised the pacing and denouement. BookReporter also praised the novel, citing its characters as a highlight.

Of the 2009 print release, HorrorNews.net wrote "I can see how this format was appealing for the more imaginative podcast format – but avid readers who enjoy fast-paced and exciting sci-fi thrillers will be disappointed by the print version of this effort."
