The premise of debut author Warren Fahy's FRAGMENT
intrigued me so much, I had to read it. Even though it's
not my usual choice of genre, I was hooked from the first
page and found it almost impossible to put down. Adding to
the excellent reading experience are detailed descriptions,
as well as illustrations, of the unusual creatures
encountered on tiny Henders Island. Not since JURASSIC PARK
has this type of story held me so spellbound, and with less
suspension of belief.
In this powerhouse of suspense—as brilliantly imagined as
Jurassic Park and The Ruins—scientists have made a
startling discovery: a fragment of a lost continent, an
island with an ecosystem unlike any they’ve seen
before . . . an ecosystem that could topple ours like a
house of cards.
The time is now. The place is the Trident, a long-range
research vessel hired by the reality TV show Sealife.
Aboard is a cast of ambitious young scientists. With a
director dying for drama, tiny Henders Island might be just
what the show needs. Until the first scientist sets foot on
Henders—and the ultimate test of survival begins . . .
For when they reach the island’s shores, scientists are
utterly unprepared for what they find—creatures unlike any
ever recorded in natural history. This is not a lost world
frozen in time, an island of mutants, or a lab where
science has gone mad: this is the Earth as it might have
looked after evolving on a separate path for half a billion
Soon the scientists will stumble on something more shocking
than anything humanity has ever encountered: because among
the terrors of Henders Island, one life form defies any
scientific theory—and must be saved at any cost.
