What if our future lies 40,000 years in our past? Subject Twenty-One is an astonishing debut novel in which a young woman's refusal to accept the status quo opens her eyes to the lies her society is built on.

Elise's world is forever changed when she is given the opportunity of a lifetime - to work at the Museum of Evolution and be a Companion to the Neanderthal, Subject Twenty-One.

As a Sapien, a member of the lowest order of humans, she and others like her are held responsible for the damages inflicted on the world by previous generations. This job may be Elise's only chance to escape a stagnating life in an ostracised and impoverished community.

But it doesn't take long for Elise to realise that, away from the familiarity and safety of her home, her own secrets are much harder to conceal.

And the longer she stays the more she comes to realise that little separates her from the exhibits . . . and a cage of her own.

Reviews for Subject Twenty One (#1 Tomorrows Ancestors)

A laudable debut with a sustained narrative and characterisations that demand the reader keep on their toes. * NB Magazine * A thought-provoking and enjoyable read with intriguing premises and an original setting. * Future Fire Reviews * A fascinating read * Cheryl M-M's Book Blog * An interesting story, wonderfully written. * Jera's Jamboree * Well-thought out and fun to read. * Rosie Writes * A well-told story, incorporating some particularly interesting ideas. * Popular Science * Compelling and thematically rich. * Rowan Fortune * Warren's ideas in this book are wonderful, playing on the current ambivalence about genetic engineering and envisaging a world in which it's the basis of a whole new caste system. * The Idle Woman * Incredibly well-written...would happily recommend it to everyone. * Blam Books * Very original...I just loved the whole idea. * LF Books * Pacy, characterful and imaginative * Track of Words *
