Catherine is a soldier. Fast, strong, lethal, she is the ultimate in military technology. Bred by scientists, indoctrinated by the government, she and her sisters will win this war, no matter the cost. And the costs are high. The life span of these genetic soldiers is short, and they become unstable as they age. Then on their eighteenth birthday, when their duty is fulfilled, they are discharged - lined up and shot. But the truth is, Catherine and her sisters may not be strictly human, but they aren't animals either. Catherine may have only known death, but she dreams of life - and is prepared to pay any price to get it.


Having loved TC’s first title Germline, I really couldn’t wait to embark into this dark future society again as it was not only inventive but had all the elements to not only continue to kick ass with the wars but bring to the fore the chance to get to know the Warrior Female Clones to the fore who are the super soldiers. Its well written, the lead characters point of view wonderfully understandable for a reader and expands to increase the readers comprehension of these characters that was glimpsed in the previous instalment.

Add to this a great understanding of pace, some solid dialogue and a whole new set of characters to help flesh out this dark world and all in you can’t help but fail to enjoy TC’s writing. Great stuff for me.

This one looks interesting - exploring what it means to be human by following someone who isn't.
