The Museum of Second Chances
What happens when the future recaptures the past?

In a post-apocalyptic world the human race has evolved beyond us through genetic engineering – and we’ve been left behind to make amends for the damage inflicted on the earth.

The reversal of the extinction of long lost animals is key to our reparations and all of these are housed in the Museum of Evolution – along with another species of human that hasn’t existed for 30,000 years.

Elise belongs to the lowest order of humans, the Sapiens. She lives in an ostracised community of ecological houses, built to blend with an idyllic landscape. Deciding to widen her stagnating life in the manufacturing base, she takes a chance opportunity to become a Companion to a previously extinct species of human.

But Elise has secrets of her own that threaten to be exposed now that she is away from the safety of her home. And while living in the museum, Elise realises that little separates her from the other exhibits…

My Review
Oh, gosh. This book was fantastic. I enjoyed every second of it.
The story follows Elise, a Sapien, who lands a job working at the Museum of Second Chances. There, she plays the role of Companion to a Neanderthal known as Twenty-One. At first, Elise is hesitant and nervous, but soon finds herself easing into the job, as well as starting a tentative friendship with another Companion. But all of that just might come crumbling down if Elise isn't careful. 
I have to say, this was a really strong debut novel. It has a unique premise that immediately drew me in, and both the character development and world building kept me captivated. I couldn't wait to see how things played out.
I think my favorite character in the story is probably Samuel. He's an interesting guy, and I'm curious to know more about him. I also really liked Elise and Georgina too. 
The plot is nicely paced and keeps readers interested. It's definitely a fascinating concept, and I thought it was written quite well and was fleshed out properly.
Overall, not a bad start to a fun, new series. Looking forward to book two.
4.5 stars from me!
