The Genesis Quest

by Donald Moffitt

Scientists learn the secret of human life after intercepting a message from Earth. The alien species uses their knowledge to succeed in re-creating humans.

Bram, the bioengineer, is determined to discover the truth about his species and the secret of the Earth. Bram must discover a way to unveil the truth and see the homeland he has been denied.
