Overview

Over a century after the seedship Lazarus completed its near 1,200 year journey, the Terran colonies found themselves in conflict with a hostile alien race.In a world decimated by a long, drawn-out war where a never-ending stream of fresh clones are fed to the Terran war machine, a genetically engineered squad of soldiers must fight to survive against all odds.When society is ruled from behind the scenes by massive corporate conglomerates that control powerful secret organizations and even the very Republic itself, the clones will come to question the world they live in, their fellow soldiers, and even the very nature of their existence. What's more, they must struggle to establish their own identities in a world that has little respect for human life, and even less for that of a clone.

If you're new to Sci-Fi, you'll love this book. If you love Sci-Fi, you'll love this book. As a newbie you'll love the extensive and detailed descriptions. This is something seasoned Sci-Fi writers forget to do; they expect their audience to already be familiar with certain concepts and machinery that the new reader has no knowledge of. You'll also love this if you're a veteran Sci-Fi fan, as the exciting and panoptic world Christian Matari has created comes alive in your very hands. The build up in this book seemed slow to me at first, but when the sh*t finally hits the fan, the whole story comes together and you just can't put the book away. The second half of this book read itself as Matari's clones struggle to survive the brutal onslaught and incredible things happening to them. Locus Origin's take on how clones develop personalities is amazing and the characters are fun and interesting. They're flawed, with great quirks and sometimes hateful characteristics. They make mistakes and don't have an innate moral compass, but rather learn from mistakes like the rest of us. I can't wait to see how they grow as this Sci-Fi series continues. What excites me the most about this book is indeed the fact that this is only the first in a series of books. And the reason for that excitement is definitely the plot in the background of the story. It promises to be great. The main characters of the book are totally unaware of a much much larger picture that I can't wait to see unfold. All in all, this is a must read!

Great concept. Fast paced storyline. Well developed characters. Not just a bunch of battles. While leaving enough unanswered questions to make you want to read the sequal, this book tied of the plot to make this a complete story and not one of those horrid cliff hangers. This book is a great read. I look forward to more from this author.
