Overview

What does it mean to be human?

imagine you're in a tragic accident.

You expect to die!

Instead, you awaken in a body that is not yours.

Not even your own species.


Not even your own gender.

In a desperate attempt to save your life your brain has been transplanted into the only body available, the body of a genetically engineered slave.

Everyone is quick to assure you that you are still "legally human," but you know that when any stranger sees you they see property or perhaps a Frankenstenian abomination.

It is a transformation that causes Todd Herschel to reevaluate his sense of self, his gender identity, her sexual orientation, and how humanity relates to its biological creations.

If your brain is in a new body, whose soul do you have?

Meet the Author

Born in Salt Lake City Utah in 1970, I have been writing for most of my life but prior to 2012 only had research papers and technical documents published. A cancer survivor, my day job, ironically, used to be as a biologist in a lab that looks for genetic markers for hereditary cancer. When not working or writing I enjoy spending time with my wife and daughter, reading, gaming and going to the movies.
So far, my only published novels are The Face in the Mirror: a transhuman identity crisis and Chained Reflections. The first two volumes of my Reflections series. The third volume Reflections of Hope should be released some time in mid 2014. I also blog regularly, you can find me at http://trbrownauthor.hubpages.com/ talking about the science fiction and fantasy genre in general and giving book and movie reviews. I also sound off about sci-fi and fantasy on twitter @trbrownauthor
If you're curious about parts of the setting that didn't get elaborated on in the text, or would like updates on how long you need to wait for the next book you can check out http://www.facebook.com/TheFaceInTheMirror. Constructive criticism can also be directed to that site, I'm always looking for ways to improve my writing. You can also find me online at http://rkbrown1800.wix.com/trbrownauthor. If you did enjoy my book please rate it and let your friends know. Even better submit a review and let everyone know.
