Doctor Marcela Warrick embarks on research for biotech Everjein in which she is to spend five years isolated in a hermitic habitat in the Antarctic. The results could see Everjein profit from a government contract to establish the first human colony on Titan. Marcela meets Doctor Kian Barret whose goal is to establish successful, off world, human breeding through implantation of genetically chosen embryos.
Meanwhile Detective Zoe Moore finds herself investigating a series of unexplained fatalities where the link between the victims is amniotic fluid and traces of an experimental drug in their toxicology, connecting them directly to Barret’s research.
“Lost Souls: Book One of the Disciples of Cassini Trilogy” by Author Penny de Byl is simply an astounding read that has captivated my mind and imagination for nights on end. In many ways “Lost Souls” will literally place you in the center of Antarctic where Main Character Dr. Marcela Warrick takes center stage with her research that turns into a chilling thriller of epic proportion. A killing spree unfolding on the main land places Detective Zoe Moore into the mix where time and answers are quickly running out. In short this is simply a gripping on the edge of your seat thrill ride that is not for the faint of heart. I thought that Author Penny de Byl’s writing style is fast paced making for a quick read that most if not all can enjoy.
In short words to describe this book for me are: Gripping, Captivating, Thrilling and Suspenseful in a well-written manner that will leave you wanting more. 5 Stars and cant wait to get my hands on the next book.

Lost Souls was both captivating and interesting. This was my first book from Penny De Byl and I would have to say that I am very impressed by her writing style. The story was fast-paced and adventurous. I had trouble setting this book down once I started it. I was able to connect with the characters and they were well-developed. Dr. Marcela Warrick finds herself in Antarctica in the middle of a scandal. People are dying left and right mysteriously in a killing spree due to the research of Dr. Barret. Detective Zoe comes in and tries to solve the mystery. I could feel my heart pacing through some parts of this book. I loved the setting in Antarctica and felt like I was there in many of the scenes. This is a book I would highly recommend.
