Publisher's Summary

Clans are unity. No variation. No deviation.
On Clades, to be a Clan is to be an exact copy. A perfect society cloning themselves to survive, even as the zombielike Frags threaten to overrun them on an unforgiving planet.
Clan 1672 (privately known as Twain) was never supposed to survive the Incubation Tank. But he did. Illegally. He is different from the other Clans.
He has a secret that could destroy him.

One of the best I've ever listened to.

This was a really interesting story. As a Jeff fan, I can't help myself, so picked this up as soon as he posted on facebook.

What I really loved about this story was just that, the story. It was so intricate, so well written and of course performed that I was totally hooked in from the first five minutes. This is, in fact going to be one of my all time favourites probably for a long time. If I could give this one 10 stars I would.

The characters in here, were so deep and wonderfully developed, their backstory and lives just so heartbreaking and wonderful. I felt and went through their journey with them and was on the edge of my seat with it many, many times.

I think my only criticism was the ending and I won't spoil it for anyone, honestly I think it could have ended much sooner. But, that's my only real quibble. I don't know if this is going to be something there can be another story with but I'll be watching for more, especially from the writer, it was just brilliant. Thank you very much for this. Some of the best hours I've spent listening.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I loved the premise of this book; in a world of clones, one (1672) finds himself different, hidden from society from which he wouldn't fit in.
While the audio narration is very good (Jeff Hays is amazing and should totally narrate a lot more audiobooks), I wasn't drawn into the characters. Once Twain (1672) meets up with the underground other Clans, there is unnecessary excessive profanity and I feel like it detracts from the novel.
While I really wanted to read this book from the blurb, it just wasn't my cup of tea.
