Tony Bertauski Synopsis: Halfskin by Tony Bertauski is book 1 of the Halfskin series. Biomites are artificial stem cells that can replace any cell in your body. They eliminate kidney failure, severed spines, blood disease, cancer and even the need for pharmaceuticals. With each dose of biomites, humans become stronger, smarter and prettier. At what point does a human cease to be a 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, merely deactivation. 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.’
