BOOK THREE of the Clone Chronicles
My vision wavers, tears flowing, choking me. I have to lean forward, forehead pressed to the round of the wheel as I sob silently into the warm cab of the SUV. I clutch the leather-bound steering wheel as though it can save me, keep me safe, but nothing helps, nothing.
But the sobbing. When I'm done at last, as my body heaves out the final bitterness of my longing, I look up, wiping my face on my sleeve to see Duet staring at me through the windshield.
She's smiling like she has no idea what I'm going through. And while I know she doesn't, that my half-cyborg sister, saved by the teks in body but not in mind, can't comprehend at the best of times and lacks anything resembling empathy, I still feel a surge of anger at her for being so damned cheerful.
New York looms, the task finally at hand. Betrayal after betrayal, loss after loss have taken their toll on Trio, but she’s made it at last. And yet, nothing could prepare her and her sister Duet for what and who comes next—for the darkest deception of all. The sister clones must accept the ultimate sacrifice, risking everything and everyone they love for a dying humanity before the very person they’ve sought can remake the world in her image.
About the Author
About me, huh? Well, my official bio reads like this: Patti Larsen is an award-winning middle grade and young adult author with a passion for the paranormal. But that sounds so freaking formal, doesn’t it? I’m a storyteller who hears teenager’s voices so loud I have to write them down. I love the idea of sports even though sports hate me. I’ve dabbled in everything from improv theater to film making and writing TV shows, singing in an all girl band to running my own hair salon. But always, always, writing books calls me home. I’ve had my sights set on world literary domination for a while now. Which means getting my books out there, to you, my darling readers. It’s the coolest thing ever, this job of mine, being able to tell stories I love, only to see them all shiny and happy in your hands… thank you for reading. As for the rest of it, I’m short (permanent), slightly round (changeable) and blonde (for ever and ever). I love to talk one on one about the deepest topics and can’t seem to stop seeing the big picture. I happily live on Prince Edward Island, Canada, home to Anne of Green Gables and the most beautiful red beaches in the world, with my very patient husband and four massive cats.

What a fantastically perfect ending to Larsen’s Clone trilogy. I couldn’t put it down from the first page to the very last. Her world is phenomenally well developed, creating a seamless experience for readers. Everything was so vivid and larger than life. The implications behind the technology that Larsen presents was chilling. It was so real and would completely revolutionize the world. The entire premise behind the series was phenomenal. I love how it slowly unfolded throughout the story. The cast of characters is so well developed by this point in time in the series that I felt as if I really and truly knew them. The way that they all tied together in the past, present, and future, all of which melded together here, was phenomenal. This was a quick, fast paced read that took me on a wild journey. This story took a great series to a whole new level. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
A seriously amazing finale to a great YA sci-fi/post-apocalyptic/dystopian series! I have grown attached to Trio and Duet, clone sisters meant to save the shattered world somehow. A world that has been ravaged with disease and the subsequent mutations of those who have survived. This follows the sisters right after the events of book 2 as they finally arrive at their destination with their group of loyal and not so loyal ‘friends’-New York City. But what they find there is not what they thought they would discover. Their sister, Clone One-also known as Solo, is not the person they thought they were looking for. Hell bent on manipulating the world, Solo will stop at nothing to complete her plans to change the destiny of humans forever. Trio and Duet face the ultimate sacrifice for the ones they love when the choice to keep them all alive or save the world becomes apparent. A near impossible choice. Wow, I was thoroughly surprised by the twist of events. Nothing like what I expected. I was actually left stunned at the end, still wanting more of these epic characters and story. I didn’t want it to end. Especially didn’t expect that ending! Definitely a gut wrenching read! The post-apocalyptic world is stunning in the descriptions and floats off the page easily with fluid storytelling. I enjoyed this series, it was fast paced (which I love!), highly imaginative, had a sci-fi fantasy flavors (hard to find YA), and was horrific enough to make me cringe at times. Fantastic series that must be read back to back, leaving you breathless! It’s that good!
