We’re delighted to be on tour today sharing Laura’s thoughts for The Base of Reflections by A E Warren. This is the second story in the Tomorrow’s Ancestors series.

Read Laura’s thoughts on the first story, The Museum of Second Chances – the first in the series.

What happens when the future abandons the past?

Elise and her companions have made it to the safety of Uracil but at a price. Desperate to secure her family’s passage, she makes a deal with Uracil’s Tri-Council. She’ll become their spy, jeopardising her own freedom in the process, in exchange for her family’s safe transfer. But first she has to help rescue the next Neanderthal, Twenty-Two.

Twenty-Two has never left the confines of the steel walls that keep her separated from the other exhibits. She has no contact with the outside world and no way of knowing why she has been abandoned. With diminishing deliveries of food and water, she has to start breaking the museum’s rules if she wants a second chance at living.

One belongs to the future and the other to the past, but both have to adapt—or neither will survive…

The Base of Reflections is available to purchase in digital and paperback formats.



The Base of Reflections is the second part of the Tomorrow’s Ancestors series which I found just as exciting and wonderfully written as the first story.

Elise, Kit, Samuel, Luca, Georgina and Bay make it to Uracil but Elise wants to save her parents too. She becomes a spy in exchange for her family’s safety.

Her mission is to save another Neanderthal, Twenty-Two from the Museum of Evolution in Cytosine. Twenty-Two however is also rebelling the strict rules of the museum and longs to change her life.

A great second story and I thoroughly enjoyed reading them together. An interesting dystopian novel highlighting that the class system is still firmly in place and the people who are willing to change.

AE Warren lives in the UK. A not-so-covert nerd with mildly obsessive tendencies, she has happily wiled away an inordinate amount of time reading and watching sci-fi/ fantasy and gaming. She is interested in the ‘what ifs’.

The Museum of Second Chances is her first novel and she is currently writing the third book in the ‘Tomorrow’s Ancestors’ series.

I've been blogging about my interests at Jera's Jamboree for 9+ years. My love of reading, crocheting, being out in nature and positive psychology are all things that help me unwind from my role as an Inclusion Lead in a primary school.
