You can read my exclusive Online Book Club review here.

The author did an excellent job creating the personalities of the main characters, Tau and Kata. I really appreciated the bond they formed as they helped each other cope with the terrible conditions at the lab where they were imprisoned and experimented on.

The book touches on important topics such as the ethics of cloning and the dehumanizing treatment people inflict on those they consider inferior.

The only reason I didn't give the book five stars was because I felt that other than the Trendellian security chief, Samara, the female characters were two-dimensional. The male characters were much better developed.

I am already reading the second book in the series, Homecoming. I couldn't wait to find out what was next for Kata and Tau after the shocking culmination of the first book.
