What would you do if you came face-to-face with perfection, and it looked just like you? Two men, one face. One man seeks to embrace destiny, the other to escape it.
Danyael Sabre spent sixteen years clawing out of the ruins of his childhood and finally has everything he wanted - a career, a home, and a trusted friend. To hold on to them, he keeps his head down and plays by the rules. An alpha empath, he is powerful in a world transformed by the Genetic Revolution, yet his experience has taught him to avoid attention.
When the perfect human being, Galahad, escapes from Pioneer Laboratories, the illusory peace between humans and their derivatives - the in vitros, clones, and mutants - collapses into social upheaval. The abominations, deformed and distorted mirrors of humanity, created unintentionally in Pioneer Lab's search for perfection, descend upon Washington D.C. The first era of the Genetic Revolution was peaceful. The second is headed for open war.
Although the genetic future of the human race pivots on Galahad, Danyael does not feel compelled to get involved and risk his cover of anonymity, until he finds out that the perfect human being looks just like him.

Whenever people ask how the idea of PERFECTION UNLEASHED came about, I frequently attribute it to my undergraduate degree in Biology and Philosophy. After all, PERFECTION UNLEASHED explores the idea of perfection in a genetically altered world.
There are, however, lots of other inspirations that go into PERFECTION UNLEASHED. Facets of its many characters existed in an earlier incarnation in my Guild Wars fan fiction. Guild Wars is an MMORPG, one I devoted hundreds, possibly thousands of hours to several years ago. It was a fantastic game. You could play one of ten different professions across four different continents in the game world. Naturally, I had to have at least one of each profession, and then I usually had one of either gender in each profession. Yes, I was addicted, perhaps just a wee bit. My marriage survived Guild Wars, that's all that mattered.
The beauty of Guild Wars was that it was beautiful. The art was enchanting, the characters flawlessly lovely, which appealed immensely to my huge streak of online vanity. After all, if you're going to spend hours staring at a screen, you might as well enjoy what you're looking at.
I had always been a storyteller at heart, and naturally, I began to tell stories about the characters within the game that consumed most of my waking moments. I started writing fan fiction and eventually incorporated my friends' characters into my story. A gamer paid me the highest compliment when he said that he stopped seeing his characters as pixels on a screen and started seeing them as people, with a story to tell. Eventually, that fan fiction became a 300,000-word novel that for copyright reasons (since the story was created within the world owned by Guild Wars) could never be published.
So, I decided to find another home for my imaginary friends, and that home became the world of the Double Helix. Danyael Sabre and Lucien Winter's life-transforming friendship in PERFECTION UNLEASHED began in Guild Wars. Facets of my Guild Wars elementalist, Dalliance Jade, were reborn in the flashy and stunning Zara Itani, the Lebanese-Venezuelan assassin from PERFECTION UNLEASHED.
I invite you to meet my friends, Danyael, Lucien, Zara, and of course Galahad - the perfect human being - in PERFECTION UNLEASHED, "a highly-enjoyable, brainy guilty pleasure of a novel: a perfect mixture of non-stop action, gripping plot, thought-provoking philosophy, and beautiful visuals ... a feast for the eyes."
Welcome to PERFECTION UNLEASHED and the world of the Double Helix.
