Jose also learns that male children are being executed once they hit puberty. Jose trains the AP’s as he would an Army and comes up with a pan to save the children
“Future Prometheus” by J.M Erickson is a work of fiction. I do enjoy reading a good science fiction book and this was it. This book had a unique story line which can be hard in the science fiction genre. Although at times I couldn’t separate when a new character was talking I did enjoy the story. I liked the concept of women being in charge. I would recommend this book to anyone a fan of science fiction or post apocalyptic life.
