THE OTHER TREE by DK Mok will be available in print and ebook form December 2013.
been four years since Chris Arlin graduated with a degree that most
people think she made up, and she’s still no closer to scraping up
funding for her research into rare plants. Instead, she’s stacking
shelves at the campus library, until a suspiciously well-dressed man
offers her a lucrative position on a scientific expedition.
Chris, the problem isn’t the fact that they’re searching for the
Biblical Tree of Life. Nor is it the fact that most of the individuals
on the expedition seem to be fashionably lethal mercenaries. The problem
is that the mission is being backed by SinaCorp, the corporation
responsible for a similar, failed expedition on which her mother died
eleven years ago.
However, when Chris’s father is unexpectedly
diagnosed with inoperable cancer, Chris sees only one solution. Vowing
to find the Tree of Life before SinaCorp’s mercenaries, Chris recruits
Luke, an antisocial campus priest undergoing a crisis of faith.
Together, they embark on a desperate race to find Eden. However, as the
hunt intensifies, Chris discovers growing evidence of her mother’s
strange behaviour before her death, and she begins to realise that
SinaCorp isn’t the only one with secrets they want to stay buried.
