In defiance of death, an immortal sacrifices eternal life to protect an innocent soul. An unexpected transformation occurs, leading two souls to a mysterious small town that is a sanctuary to individuals from around the world.
Most consider how their lives ended up there as coincidence, while others speak of divine intervention. For some it is a start of a new life, freed from painful memories. Others have escaped persecution, abuse, and those who would threaten their lives.
It is here that the tapestry of humanity that calls this place home provide a beacon of hope to those in need.
Music often inspires scenes, helps mold the tone of a narrative, and in some cases, defines a character.
What follows is a collection of songs that are the soundtrack to this novel.
This song inspired a "deleted" scenario that does not occur in the novel but would be ideal visually for a movie or television series based off the book. This will add to the experience for the visual representation of the book. Learn more about this new addition below under the "Bonus Scene" section of this page.
The end of the novel is a celebration of life and the incredible diversity that is humanity.

As I was writing the character, I pictured Awkwafina playing the role. I like her for the character in that her ability to bring humor and sarcasm to a scene is ideal for someone that could come across far too seriously. The lighter tone to her sarcasm and sometimes abrasive behavior would be an ideal balance for Ming-Na.
Phoenix is first introduced in this novel but will play a much larger role in the form of a Tagonist Knight. Her ability to handle action-hero style scenes in the future is an ideal balance to a woman who is dealing with a personal conflict with the world she lives in. Amber is able to reveal that level of depth to the character.
Noami has escaped as abusive relationship with her ex-husband. She is starting a new life with her son who was born after she escaped a man who attempted to keep her trapped, controlling her life. In her new home she has found friends who care for her, a job she enjoys, and a place where she feels safe.
Bonus Scene: Not Found In Book
In a movie/television presentation of Genesis of the First Born, the opening scene would be a view of heavy rain striking a roadway winding through a path away from any city or town. It would slowly zoom in on a car that comes into view, soon an interior of a woman talking. You hear Rose's voice speaking to someone as she is sitting in the passenger seat. It is never revealed who is driving, but the scene ends with her looking back to see Gabriel sitting behind her, calmly stating, "It's time..." She has only a moment to react in shock before she looks forward to see a flash of light of an oncoming vehicle. Suddenly everything goes dark. Then the music, Genesis by Ruelle begins playing as the opening credits roll.
Where would the Author make a cameo?
Stan Lee is notorious for making a cameo in movies and television series based off his written works. With that in mind, where would the author of this novel make an appearance in a visual adaptation of the book?
In one of his rare moments with a speaking part and playing a prominant role, the author makes his appearence in the opening scene as an unnamed customer. Reema asks what his order is, and his response is, "The usual." Griffon steps in to help her out with the man's order. Throughout the movie, he can be seen in the background on a laptop fullfilling the sterotype of how authors like to go to coffee shops to work on their projects. A subtle nod and a wink to the audience.
