The Rising Sun Hotel
His short stories have been published nationally and his debut novel, Ember from the Sun, was published in 10 languages. In the blue ice of an arctic cave, a scientist has made an extraordinary discovery: a woman's body, frozen for 25, years in a near-perfect state, with pliant tissues, vessels filled with blood--and an embryo waiting to be born They called her Ember, the child of their heart, born to surrogate parents who refused to yield her after birth.
Raised among the Quanoot Indians, Ember is as modern as those around her, a young woman struggling with a loneliness and yearning she does not yet understand. Stronger than her classmates, imbued with the power to heal, Ember's soul resounds with the cries and whispers of a time she has never seen, and of a people who beckon her home.
Desperate to unravel the mystery of her birth, Ember embarks on a spellbinding journey to find the people who call to her in her dreams. Guided by a shaman who has waited for her return, pursued by the man of science who brought her to life, Ember is drawn to a place where no one else can go--where her ancestors, the golden-skinned people of her dreams, wait for her to set them free Convert currency.

With the clarity of a scientist, the wisdom of a shaman, and the passion ofa born storyteller, debut novelist Mark Canter brings to life a heroine asmemorable as Ayla in "The Clan of the Cave Bear," and weaves a compellingtale of love and myth, redemption, and the powerful human urge forconnection. Ember Ozette is brought to life from a tiny embryo when a forensic scientistdiscovers a pregnant Neanderthal preserved for centuries in arctic ice.
Keeping his research secret, and driven by motives much deeper than he can layclaim to, Dr. Yute Nahadeh implants the embryo in a surrogate mother, and aNeanderthal infant is born. Raised among the Quanoot Indians of Whaler Bay, Washington, Ember is a child ofthe present, as modern as those around her. She takes pleasure in her family, excels in sports, hikes in the woods that surround her home. Even so, herotherness is a source of great shame. What is the purpose of her extraordinarygifts--her power to heal, her uncanny perceptions, the vivid dreams thatdisturb her sleep?
Her quest for answers is driven by visions of a band ofmysterious golden-skinned people--the last survivors of their race--who arefleeing genocide.

In a climax as moving and suspenseful as any in recent fiction, Ember iscompelled to search for her ancestors.
