The year is 2075 and the human race is dying. Decades of war, famine, and bio-engineering have finally taken their toll, and birth rates have declined to near zero.
The leaders of two of the solar system’s largest corporations believe they can save humanity, but they will have to break the law to do it.
When Doctor Evan Feldman decided to have his body frozen immediately after his death, he always hoped that one day the technology would exist to cure his cancer-ravaged body. But he never imagined that his granddaughter, Aubrey Harris, would be the one to restore him to life, nor could he imagine how much the world would change in fifty years. He doesn’t know it yet, but he is at the center of a secret plan to save the human race from extinction.
After General Secretary Dianne Merkel, head of the government agency charged with enforcing Earth’s anti-cloning laws, learns that Evan has been restored she will stop at nothing to bring him, and those that restored him, to justice. Unfortunately for her, Evan has a lot of help and she soon finds that capturing him is easier said than done.
Aubrey and her co-conspirators are determined to succeed at any cost and they quickly get Evan off of the Earth, sending him fleeing across the Solar System in a frantic race against time. With an elite team of soldiers closing in on them, the conspirators are forced to improvise. Has restoring Evan cost them everything they’ve worked for?

Restoration will challenge your beliefs about what makes us human while taking you on a wild ride to the Asteroid Belt and beyond. Spanning more than five decades, Restoration explores the moral, physical and ethical consequences of using advanced technologies without fully understanding their effects and implications for our species. It also challenges our definition of what it means to be alive, and it asks us to consider whether the entirety of who we are can be digitized and transferred from one body to another without losing any part of ourselves.
Ultimately, Restoration is a fast-paced, sci-fi adventure that will leave you wanting more.
What a great book! A not so gentle reminder of what human’s may be doing to our planet and ourselves. Restoration is full of possibilities that our future may bring. One family’s quest to save each other and maybe even the human race takes you on a thrilling ride from Earth, our solar system, and beyond. I eagerly await a sequel! – Jodi Hancock
I am a huge Sci-Fi fan, and this book did not disappoint! The things I liked most about this book included: the believable and sometimes terrifyingly believable scientific examples of what could become of our world, planet, and yes, solar system; the amazingly relatable characters that just completely drew me into the story; the absolutely brilliant twists I never saw coming; and the author’s ability to keep the action going leaving me wanting more at the end of each chapter. – Kimberly Graham
Daniel McWhorter does a fantastic job with Restoration. It brought me right back to those times as a kid staying up all night dreaming about what life would be like on different planets! I had a hard time putting it down. It provides a realistic picture of the impact of present day innovations like, artificial intelligence, space travel, and genetic manipulation. I recommend this book to everyone who is interested in Sci-Fi and cant wait for the next one! – Joshua O. Janjua
