Victoria is a normal and average Canadian girl adopted from China when she was an infant. On her thirteenth birthday, without warning and in the blink of an eye, her world turns upside down and inside out. Everything she knows about everything turns out to be a lie. Victoria discovers that an ancient oracle links her to a cataclysmic catastrophe known as the Stopping-of-the-Sun. She is supposed to be the only person with the power to save humanity from total destruction.
This story is about Victoria's perilous odyssey in search for the truth. In the course of that journey, she learns the true history of China, the ancient writing known as Oracle Bone script, the source of human civilization, the ocean of lies that we live in, and the bleak future of humanity if we do not wake up from our stupor. There is a mystery on every page and a surprise on the next. Reading the book carefully from cover to cover is itself an odyssey for the serious reader. Prepare to be amazed!
Booklife Prize 2018
“The novel’s literary style is creative, informative, and at times offbeat ... The breadth of knowledge and content Man integrates into the narrative (art history, world geography, mythology, and literature) is ambitious and often captivating. This genre-spanning novel is rich, profound, and--for some readers--potentially overwhelming … the meaningful connections Man draws between the various characters’ histories and global events are both enjoyable and educational.”
