Step into the 31st Century where synthetic babies are born and man is God. On June 4, 3044, Hiroto, the grandson of Master Izanagi Okamura, is born. The Self-Professed Japanese God of the Creation of Life, Izanagi has revolutionized life with his synthetic baby creation. No longer capable of giving birth, women are barren in this new world. Instead, babies are conceived in a petrie dish and there are more than one kind of living being.
There are humans, developed by a male sperm piercing a female egg, and then there are the Mosouka’s, imitation cells with the same DNA structure as humans. Each human is born with a genetically matching Mosouka who will be given to them on their fifth birthday. And so, it is on the fifth birthday of Hiroto Okamura that he would be introduced to L4-13354, his humanoid Mosouka.
Considered nothing more than a human doll kept alive by advanced technology, Mosouka’s are not real. At least not all of them. Noticing that his Mosouka is exhausted after playing with him and his friends, Hiroto cares for her with the gentle tenderness of someone whose human. Noticing this, the children tease him and one angry kid pushes L4 over the side of the Yacht and things will never be the same for Hiroto and his humanoid.
It is under the water, like an immersing, that L4 breaks her arm and hears the voice of the Almighty who gives her his spirit and she becomes a living being. Not only does she save Hiroto who jumps into the water after her, but she feels pain and cries real tears. There’s only one problem: No one must know that she’s real.
Together, Hiroto and L4, who he later names La’Besa, must conceal her true identity and discover the truth of their union together. With mankind’s disbelief in the true creator, how will he react to the living miracle whose presence is to destroy all that he holds dear?
I truly enjoyed reading this book. While there’s an over usage of exclamation marks I didn’t care for, I was very much engaged in the story line and once I started, I couldn’t stop reading. No, that’s not a cliche. I really did want to know how this story would end.
What’s the connection with Hiroto and La’Besa and the significance of her uniqueness? Why was she chosen to live and the other Mosouka’s, were not? What happens when Hiroto’s Grandfather, God of this World, discovers La’Besa’s humanity? Why is she the living miracle?
