Perfection is Impossible.
Bricks (Halfskin #3)
Fabbers, slabbers and fakies were dehumanizing slurs for fabricated humans. Bricks, however, was the People’s favorite.
The Sentience Laws were created to protect the rights of Bricks, but the laws didn’t last long. Banished to the remote isolation of the Settlement, Paul and Raine are sentenced to live the rest of their lives in the wilderness.
Escape and freedom will depend on Marcus Anderson, the man responsible for all the suffering that’s been endured since the invention of biomites—the synthetic stem cells used to fabricate halfskins and Bricks. Marcus needs them in order to find the “powers-that-be,” the man he believes is truly responsible for the world’s suffering. Their journey will take them to a tiny island in the South Atlantic, where the truth is much closer than they realize. That’s where they will discover the “powers-that-be”.
And so much more.
Halfskin (Halfskin #1)
Biomites are artificial stem cells that can replace any cell in your body. No more
kidney failure, no severed spines or blood disease. No cancer. Pharmaceuticals become
obsolete. With each dose of biomites, we become stronger, we become smarter and prettier.
We become better.
At what point are we no longer human? Nix Richards nearly died in a car accident
when he was young. Biomites saved his life. Ten years later, he’s not so lucky. The
Halfskin Laws decree a human composed of 50% biomites is no longer human. Halfskins
have no legal rights and will have their biomites shutdown. It’s not called murder,
Cali Richards has been Nix’s legal guardian since their parents died. She has lost
far too many people in her life to let the government take Nix. She is a nanobiometric
engineer and will discover how to hide him. But even brilliance can succumb to the
pressure of suffering. And technology can’t cure insanity. Cali and Nix keep a slippery
grip on reality as they elude a maniacal federal agent dedicated to saving humanity
from what he calls 'The Biomite Plague'.
Clay (Halfskin #2)
Jamie wants to be a halfskin.
Her life has become dull and pointless. If she had more biomites, the synthetic stems
cells that promise hope and healing, she could take control of her life. But Jamie’s
body is already 49.9% biomites. The rest is clay—her God-given organic cells. Anymore
biomites and she becomes a halfskin. And halfskins are shutdown.
But there is a way.
Black market biomites, called nixes, can’t be detected by the government. She’d have
to sacrifice her clay, but nixes can make her halfskin without anyone knowing. But
first, she has to find them.
Nix Richards can help. He’s the first halfskin to escape the government and Jamie
has something he wants. He’ll need her to help him find a fabricator to build a human
body. He’ll betray anyone to get it, even those closest to him.
This psychological thriller will keep them second-guessing every move while they
elude Marcus Anderson and the governing agency that seeks to rid the world of biomites.
But in the end, they’ll all discover just how deep the betrayal goes.
