Restoration will challenge your beliefs about what makes us human while taking you on a wild ride to the Asteroid Belt and beyond. The year is 2075 and cloning humans has been illegal for twenty years but electronically copying and archiving the contents of people’s brains is both legal and routine. Artificial intelligence systems are highly advanced and some may even be self-aware.
Spanning more than 50 years, Restoration explores the moral, physical and ethical consequences of using advanced technologies without fully understanding their effects and implications for our species. It also challenges our definition of what it means to be “alive” and it asks us to consider whether the entirety of who we are can be digitized and transferred from one body to another without losing any part of ourselves.
Ultimately, Restoration is a fast-paced sci-fi adventure that will leave you wanting more.
It has been twenty-one years since the colony ship Kutanga fled the solar system with the DNA and memories of 4,492 of Earth's most brilliant and talented people. Her journey to the Alpha Centauri system was supposed to take at least thirty years but Aneni, the ship's AI commander, has shortened the time by nearly a decade,
Now, Kutanga is in orbit above Gaia, the second of four planets orbiting Rigil Kentaurus. The Earth-like world was supposed to be uninhabited, but it is anything but. Aneni discovers not one -but four- hominid species living on Gaia, and two of them are genetically related to races that once lived on Earth.
Will Aneni fulfill her mission to restore her cargo of Homo sapiens and settle them on Gaia? Or will she leave Gaia to the Gaians? The fate of all humankind hangs in the balance.
Resurrection is the working title for the third book in The Gaia Origin series.
The colonists are running out of options...and time. Has Aneni abandoned them in her quest to discover the origins of the mysterious "Creators"?
Torn between her love of humans and her desire to solve the mystery of their creation, Aneni will decide the fate of all humankind once and for all.
