SUMMARY: A childless couple. An adoption specialist. A little girl with a secret. A young boy with unimaginable powers. A scientist with an over-inflated ego. And an elderly psychic who knows the truth.

 The BookViral Review: Smart, compelling and unquestionably demanding a read, The Adoption proves a powerful introduction to the novels of Greg Meritt. An elegantly crafted story that strikes the right balance between its psychological elements and the dictates of Science Fiction it is hugely atmospheric thanks to Meritts imaginative and visual style of writing which takes often clichéd genre tropes and makes them seem fresh and surprising. Perhaps less sensational and more ominous than other bestsellers in the genre it doesn’t rely on formulaic shocks with its plot working on many different levels and continuing to surprise to the very end. To do this Meritt creates characters, who despite events, are far from gullible but rather intelligent realists through which the reader can reflect on the logical progression of a fringe science and the ramifications if left unchecked. On this level, his ability to make the implausible plausible serves him well with his casual observations poignantly phrased whilst intrigue and suspense rarely wanes. Few authors deliver such a powerful novel first time around and it’s a credit to Merrit that he does so with apparently consummate ease.

A genuine gem of a page turner and a debut which marks Greg Meritt as an author to watch, The Adoption is sure to be enjoyed by genre junkies and would transition well to other mediums. It is recommended without reservation.
