The Life Engineered

"J-F. Dubeau’s The Life Engineered is a real page turner for anyone interested in science fiction and good literature. It brought a smile to my face as some passages made me reminisce of my own time spent aboard Galactica as a Raptor pilot!" ― Leah Cairns, Battlestar Galactica and Interstellar

"A different spin on the future of artificial intelligence." ― Geek and Sundry

"Tired of stories of humanity fighting against robot overlords? Read one for the robots. A fascinating investigation of whether even creatures we created could avoid our own foibles and fates." ― Veronica Belmont and Tom Merritt, Sword & Laser

My first self-published book is now my first officially published book! The Life Engineered is the first part of a series of books about the future of humanity and our robot descendants. This isn't a tale of robots learning to love or trying to eliminate mankind. This is the tale of our artificial descendants and their struggles.

The Life Engineered is one of the first three books inducted into the Sword & Laser Collection on Inkshares. The new version features more polished editing, a glossary and the first chapter to the sequel in the series; Arch-Android (funding later this year).

You can find The Life Engineered wherever books are sold.

In the year 3594, humanity is little more than a memory—a legend of the distant past, a rumor that might one day reappear. Capeks, a race of artificial creatures originally created by humans, have inherited the galaxy and have formed a utopian civilization built upon individual purposes serving the whole. They busy themselves tirelessly toward preparing the way for humanity’s return.

As a newly created Capek, Dagir is expected to find her place in this intricate society. Weighed down by the legacy of her creation and built for rescue and repair, she finds her abilities tested immediately after her birth. The destruction of a large, sentient Capek building facility—her creator—signals the end of peace and marks the first instance of murder among Capeks. For the first time in their history, conflicting philosophies clash, setting off a civil war that could lay waste to the stars themselves.

As the layers of Capek history peel away to reveal more of their origin, truths see the light for the first time in centuries. The revelations that result may tear humanity’s children apart—and destroy the galaxy in the process.
