Tiberius Found

Tiberius Found by Andrew Goodman
Tiberius Found 
4 out of 5 stars

What would you do if your whole life was a lie?

Daniel Henstock thinks he’s an ordinary schoolboy. But on his sixteenth birthday, his world is shaken to its core by a shocking revelation. Daniel is the world’s first genetically-engineered human – and Gregory Dryden, the man who created him, wants him back to continue his deadly experiments.

Running for his life, Daniel is forced to go ‘off grid’ in New York. In this near-future America, where the security-obsessed authorities force citizens to carry DNA cards, Daniel meets the feisty and beautiful Eleanor. But by falling for her, Daniel is putting her in terrible danger.

Daniel pursues the truth about his origins but is hunted by an agent sent by Dryden to bring him home. Can Daniel find out the truth about his origins whilst evading those who think they own him? As his enemies close in, Daniel must draw on resources he didn’t know he had to win his freedom – but in doing so he may be walking into a deadly trap…

   Truthfully, I wasn't sure what to expect when I started this book. I was pleasantly surprised to find that Tiberius Found was wonderfully well written, and highly suspenseful!
   Tiberius Found follows sixteen year-old Daniel as he discovers the truth about his life, his parents, and most importantly, himself. Hunted by a man named Dryden, Daniel must escape to New York, and completely change his identity and fall off the charts. But as Daniel's enemies close in, Daniel must make a decision, to face Dryden, or keep trying to hide. But his choice may lead him right into a deadly trap…
   I really, really liked this book. Daniel was a relate able character, with a fast-paced life. Although his quickly learned Kung-Fu moves after only reading a book, were a bit unbelievable, I enjoyed the action that I have not read in a long time. It took a couple chapters, but Tiberius Found was a definite page turner. I cannot wait for the sequel!
