REVIEW: The Human Forged by Anthony Melchiorri

In an escape from the tethers of modern technology, Nick Corrigan, a former Army Specialist, ventures into an underground rave in an abandoned Estonian prison. There, he is abducted and cut off from the rest of the world, including his fiancĂ©e. He unwittingly becomes embroiled in a biotechnological nightmare and embarks on a dangerous adventure to return home. The only person that might be able to help him is a man Nick never knew existed—his clone.

Back in Washington, CIA analyst Sara Monahan makes a startling discovery while tracking the use of biological weapons in an ongoing war in Africa. She races to uncover a global conspiracy that may shake the very essence of what it means to be human.

My Rating:

My Thoughts:

This book is unbelievable! It just cemented my long standing love affair with Sci-Fi. If action movies were turned into books, then this would be one of them. From the start, it had my attention. The details of the world he's created is intriguing and can very well come true in the next couple of years. The technology is something we've always thought of having, dreamed of even. This book gives us a preview of what it would be like if we were given a chance to experience that technology. Both the good and the bad are highlighted here. Nick Corrigan's journey through this crazy world where clones, hologram meetings and microchips is definitely an overnight read. And it's not just the advancement that's worth noting. The struggle to survive and the fear of getting caught are just some of the palpable emotions that's present in the story. This book will take you on two men's journey to freedom. One is from the government, the other from himself.

All in all, this book delivered in the thrill department, aced the sci-fi details and made me a fan of Anthony Melchiorri forever. 

About the author:
I grew up in Normal, Illinois. After a regular (it’s hard, but I refuse to make a pun of it) childhood in Normal, I left for the University of Iowa to get a degree in Biomedical Engineering. But, I couldn’t give up reading and writing and there really wasn’t enough of that in engineering (unless you’re into thick, no-thrills books on thermodynamics and polymer physics). I picked up a second degree in English while working on the Biomedical Engineering degree and have since counted myself fortunate for making that decision. Iowa City, North America’s only official UNESCO City of Literature, is a thriving hotbed of writers and readers, with some of the best visiting the city for their renowned workshop or famous authors dropping by to read a story they’ve written and chat.  I had the opportunity to meet plenty of great writers and storytellers that inspired me to keep writing, even when I graduated and entered a doctoral program at the University of Maryland for Bioengineering.
Today, when I’m not writing and reading, I’m primarily working on tissue engineered blood vessels, gearing my work for children with congenital heart defects. I get to work with awesome 3D printing technologies and am always astounded by the rapidly advancing technologies coursing through the veins of universities and research settings. Much of my writing has been inspired by those advancements and my conversations with other researchers, scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, and many others interested in our evolving world.
