I am not a very big fan of fantasy, sci-fi, or paranormal books. In fact, the majority of books I’ve read in these genres, I didn’t like. Not so with Jill Williamson and her newest book, Replication! Taking the very interesting and touchy subject of human cloning, she spins a fantastic and gripping tale about Jason:3:3—nicknamed Martyr—and his desire to see the sky before he expires…in less than 30 days.
I really liked getting to know Abby in Replication. She seemed to have such a sweet personality, and yet she had such a “teenage-ish” feel with the way her scenes are written…they were all wonderfully done. And whenever a scene was written from Martyr’s perspective, it was so unique. The way he describes things he’s never seen—TV, runny eggs, a pregnant woman—was so innocently sweet—I even laughed at a few humorous moments.
Coupled with a great cast of characters, Williamson also created an intense and suspenseful plot that kept the reader on edge. Especially for the last half of the book—it just took off! Written for the YA genre, there wasn’t thing questionable within the book that younger teen readers might have a problem with it. And while Replication is in the YA genre, I think readers of all ages would enjoy this adventure!
