In the era of synthetic biology custom designed animals are bred to replace machines. Humans have acquired a God-like control over DNA.
Dan1 breeds machines for the Biota labs. Starting as a lowly technician on the manufacturing floor, he is thrust into the highest echelons of the world’s most popular blood sport. El9 has sworn to ban the blood sport and will use any means to persuade Dan1 to join her protest movement. But El9’s unswerving belief in the cause is about to be tested by her father’s plans.
First Dan is a stunning first novel, introducing Kane’s strange concoction of animal rights, politics and paedomorphic pets. It’s a fun, gripping and at times profound novel about a world where animals and machines have become indistinguishable.
