Kirkus - Into the Twilight received a recommended label from Kirkus Reviews

" A often heady SF tour of humanity that offers a good deal more engaging talk than phaser-fire action." Entire review is posted at:

Into the Twilight takes place 200 years into the future when Jacob Ladder and Emma Fine, strangers to one another, wake from two centuries of suspended life to a future that challenges many of their deep-rooted assumptions about what it means to be and remain human.

As the story opens, the human race faces demise from within and without. Mulling over its options, the governing council decides that the human genome will require "major redesigning" or "scrapping" if what's left of humanity is to survive.
And that's where Ike comes in.

Not only is Ike a test case for future humanity, and the story's clever, enigmatic narrator, he could very well be its last historian, that is, the one chosen to record the final events in human evolution. As he attempts to fulfill his newly assigned role, he engages in a journey of self-discovery that ends in the most unlikely of all places.
