Seeds of a New Birth
Research geneticist and genetic engineer, Lionel Adams is on the verge of unlocking the vast reserves of the human mind. The head of the genetics research lab where Lionel works is excited about the possibilities and the potential mega-profits. But not nearly as excited as their foreign competitors who are counting on their inside man at Bio Vita to deliver Adam's secret into their hands.
Lionel’s research takes a dramatic twist when his college buddy, Flip MacDougal, makes a surprise visit to Bio Vita that leads to a laboratory accident with devastating results. Their world spins out of control as they struggle to deal with the massive breakdown that threatens, not only the project but the entire world.
Seeds of a New Birth is the first book in Orrin Jason Bradford’s Kindred series, science fiction technothrillers with a hint of romance. If you like Michael Crichton, Dean Koontz’s early fiction, and Hugh Howey, then you’ll love this series. It’s a character-driven, action-adventure story about an all-too-possible future where the highly volatile formula of genetic engineering coupled with corporate and personal greed threatens the course of human evolution and perhaps mankind's very existence.
