The Human Forged


By Anthony J Melchiorri

Science Fiction Thriller

In 2094, stealing a person’s identity is virtually impossible when every medical record, government document, and bank account is tied to their DNA via a personal Chip. Implanted beneath the skin, this microscopic device also augments people’s real world senses with a network of information, sending data and communications directly to the AR lenses in their eyes or the receivers in their ears. 

Nick, a former Army Specialist, is about to find out what happens when that vital connection is severed.

Venturing into an underground rave in an abandoned Estonian prison, Nick is encouraged to live life naturally, untethered by technology. But all is not as it seems. 

Nick is abducted and cut off from the rest of the world, including his fiancée. 

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.

This book made me think and made me wonder about the future of cloning.  Should we?  Could we?  Ethically is it something we should do?  

Nick is trapped in an unfamiliar place.  He knows he has to get out.  James, a clone, helps Nick.  But they both have very different reasons for wanting to leave.  James is seeking freedom and Nick, is driven to do the right thing.  While they are trying to escape a very different race is being fought in DC.  To uncover the truth of what is going on with cloning!

The Human Forged is a fast paced ride that will take you along for the adventure.  The only issue I had was the end.  I felt like so much was shoved at me at one time and then the book was over. 


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.
