The stunning conclusion to the Clone Codes trilogy

There is a wicked system of operation inside the Topas Corporation, where clones are produced. Only authorized Topas officials are allowed inside.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heather Kinard
The Topas Corporation is the world's largest and most influential cloning company. Only authorized Topas officials and the clones themselves know exactly what goes on within this secretive organization. What is known for sure is that Clones and Cyborgs are not considered sentient beings, and therefore have far less freedom than humans. Carlos Pace is a boy genius who has both Clone and Cyborg friends that have rebelled against the government and are now considered wanted fugitives. They have created the Liberty Bell Movement and joined with others who want to change the government and create an equal society for all. Carlos is sympathetic to their fight for freedom and equality and has run away from his home and father, a high official in the Topas organization. The World Federation is on the hunt for the rebel Cyborgs and Clones and will stop at nothing to keep them in their submissive roles as servants. Things are quickly moving towards a final conflict between the Liberty Bell Rebels and the World Federation that is sure to leave many dead. Carlos must finally confront his father and try to convince him to see the rebels as sentient beings before it is too late. This book is a fast-paced adventure, full of twists and turns and will appeal to science fiction lovers. This is the concluding book in "The Clone Codes" trilogy. It is a quick read, but it would be helpful to read The Clone Codes and Cyborgs before reading this final book. Reviewer: Heather Kinard
