Honestly, I read this because it was part of the kindle reading challenge for a best of 2021 book. From my search, only 3 books on that list were in KU, so I went with this one. It’s not a bad book. And I didn’t realize that there was a book 2 in the works for next year, which will make things interesting.
The writing is occasionally clunky, but it wasn’t an issue for me because the rest of the book delivers. This book is stressful as heck. The good kind of stress that has you on the edge of your seat, reading as fast as your eyes are able because FitzSimmons builds this burning need to know what happens and uncover the truth in everything. It promises so much disaster that it’s downright scary—a very twisted read.
About the Book
In the near future, advances in medicine and quantum computing make human cloning a reality. For the wealthy, cheating death is the ultimate luxury. To anticloning militants, it’s an abomination against nature. For young Constance “Con” D’Arcy, who was gifted her own clone by her late aunt, it’s terrifying.
After a routine monthly upload of her consciousness—stored for that inevitable transition—something goes wrong. When Con wakes up in the clinic, it’s eighteen months later. Her recent memories are missing. Her original, she’s told, is dead. If that’s true, what does that make her?
The secrets of Con’s disorienting new life are buried deep. So are those of how and why she died. To uncover the truth, Con is retracing the last days she can recall, crossing paths with a detective who’s just as curious. On the run, she needs someone she can trust. Because only one thing has become clear: Con is being marked for murder—all over again.
