Publisher's Summary

What would you give for a second chance? 

Valerie Ramirez, a special ed teacher still haunted by her toddler’s drowning accident, faces a fateful decision when she’s admitted into an exclusive program run by a mysterious biotech company. 

Kaden Baker, an elite hacker who dabbles in covert ops, finds her life turned upside down when she discovers her parents turn out to be imposters. Where does she come from? Who’s been financing her high-stakes secret missions? 

The answers lead back to the same sinister biotech firm. As Kaden and Valerie become allies, they make one startling discovery after another about the company’s dark intentions. But each step closer to the truth puts their lives at greater risk. 

The stakes couldn’t be higher - for Kaden’s freedom, for Valerie’s fate, and for the future direction of humanity itself.

Get it now! Biohack is a roller-coaster thrill ride that appeals to both the head and the heart - with a shocking twist you won't see coming.

Perfect for fans of the late, great Michael Crichton's science thrillers and fans of Lee Child, A.G. Riddle, and Tim Tigner.

A great Sci-Fi thrill ride

In the great traditions of Science Fiction this work gives a warning to the possibility of the misuse of Technology.;


It serves all of us to be worried and concerned when Man plays with Nature the outcomes are the essence of good
Science Fiction that not only entertains but makes you think.The Tech always changes but the risk that man will
be cocky or abnoxious with their new toys never changes.


The Narrator did a good job with the material.

Loved it!

I cannot wait for the next book in this series, I am hooked! Fast paced and packed with action, this book raises many ethical questions with it's growing science and the evolving potential for designer babies.

I love the characters in this book, they've been vividly created. The world also feels like something I could walk out my front door and find myself in.

The ethical and moral struggles the characters face due to the emerging technology are the most interesting part of the book. Getting to see how the different characters react to things is really interesting.

Beautifully written and narrated this book grabbed my attention, held it, and left me wanting more.

Speaking of narration, great character voices and the deliveries pace and tone perfectly matched the story.

THRILLING FAST-PACED SCI-FI ADVENTUREEE

Wow, gripping bio-tech thriller, great story! Loved the writing and thought the narration was great as well. This is a fascinating action-filled story that kept me interested from start to finish. I'm definitely interested in reading/listening to more! I think if you love tech thrillers, you'll love this! Well, you'll probably love it anyway, it's great! :)

A great example of this genre

Biohack: Gender Wars, Book 1. Gripping gets you on the 1st chapter and holds you till the last sentence, and leaves you wanting more, I do hope there is a book2 as suggested by the title. Fast paced with lots of action and maybe closer to the truth than we think.
Well written and edited, Beautifully narrated.

Great Scifi thriller, but with a cliffhanger

It's great listen, with action, intrigue and the technical side genetics. Honestly it first peeked my interest because the main character looked like the mc in Appleseed. It was well paced and managed now to make the more sciency parts boring or dry. The narrator did a great job, with different, distinct voices and production above average, but had a mostly constant static like background noise or other noises. The ending seem somewhat rushed, reaching the climax and shortly after, the end. Would be interested in seeing where the story is going from here.

Decent story but not much of a build up

"I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review."
Overall the story was decent but there's not much of a build up to story line. In my opinion the story is flat, there's not much of a build up. You have a pretty good idea where the story is heading within a couple of hours into the book. It could do with more action and adventure.

all in all pretty good

I really enjoyed this story. That being said, the narration was hit and miss for me. Sometimes it was really engaging but others it kind of lapses into a dry place that had me starting to lose interest. All in all, though, this was a good book and I'd be open to more in the series.

Interesting start to what could be a good series

This one was all over the place for me, but it wasn't without promise. I liked the premise and the characters, but there were some pacing issues and other things that could very well be ironed out as the series progresses. I think there is a solid foundation for some good sci-fi entertainment to mined from, and I will check out the next book.

The narration by Denise Howell showed some promise but also had some issues. She hits some good points when things get going and have decent voices to spread around, but some of the time she will get a little monotone when doing the general narration. I have no doubt she will flesh that part out in future narration, and I feel like when she is hitting her stride it is quite good and she just needs to keep that going throughout the rest of her work.

If you want a sci-fi tale that deals with some dicey subject matter in what is a possible future, and all of the sides that could exploit or encounter these technologies or changes, and are willing to give some leeway in the hope that it all comes together I recommend giving it a chance. There is definitely a lot going on in this book, and it is quite ambitious and I hope it can grow and succeed.

Promising story but not without issues.

I have to admit I came close to bailing on the book more than one, but I'm glad I stuck with it because there is an interesting and promising story in Biohack. The problem is that it just takes too long for it all to come together. I know this is Mr. Lasica's first novel, and I don't doubt he'll improve with more experience. I'd definitely be willing to give the next book a chance.

This is the first book I've heard narrated by Denise Howell, and I have to say I am left conflicted. I'm going to give her 3 stars but I feel I'm being generous with that rating. There were definitely moments where I found her narration to be quite good, but I also have to be honest and say there were also long stretches where it felt completely lifeless. And I don't mean that there was no inflection in her voice, but at times it seemed like she was just saying words one after another. What do I mean? There were times when it was just one long monotone reading of words, where you couldn't tell where one sentence started and another began. It's a shame, because I heard real potential at times, where there was real passion in her narration, but those times were few and far between. Checking on Audible I see this is the only narration credit to her name, so perhaps this was her first time and she's just getting the hang of audio narration. I hope that's the case. After all everyone has to start somewhere and as I said there were moments where she sounded quite good. Hopefully she continues to grow as an artist.

Nurture your child from day one.

A near future science fiction story whose central premise could very soon be everyday reality. The CEO of a start up genetics company, Birthrights Unlimited, has had to engage with some unpleasant sponsors in order to survive. Now at it's tenth year anniversary, the time has come to launch worldwide. But beneath the squeaky clean public face of hope, things are very rotten.

The book explores ideas of genetics and bioengineering, it's ethics, moral impact and public perception, as well as the concept of privacy in an ever expanding technological world. The action is fast paced, the greed rampant and there is an unpleasant taste of plausibility. However, the book would have been far better with a little less attempt to shock and greater attention to character development. Narration by Denise Howell was good. Her clear, pleasant sounding voice was well paced and modulated with sufficient differentiation of characters to make each distinguishable. Vocally, she mirrored the text in emotional presentation and carried the story forward well.

My thanks to the rights holder of Biohack for freely gifting me a complimentary copy, at my request, via Audiobook Boom. It was certainly intriguing as well as an exciting read, but with an overly rushed ending and less than solid protagonists,it could have been better. However, if slightly futuristic concepts in bioengineering and how it might affect the fabric of our society, all set in a thriller format, is your thing, this is certainly worth reading.
