Incredible end to great series 25 Nov 2014
By JenMo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I have been looking forward to and dreading the release of Clone Apocalypse in equal measures for some time now. Mr Kent had made it clear on his blog that this would be the final novel for the last Liberator clone, Wayson Harris.

Apocalypse starts out with a sense of impending doom, and makes no secret that the clones are done for. It doesn't immediately say how or why, but the savvy scifi fan will pick up right away, even if now President of the Enlisted Man's Empire, Harris, doesn't. But Kent does a masterful job of weaving hope through the doom. He keeps telling us the clones are finished, but gives us just enough to believe that he may be misleading us. It was an interesting sensation, I've never felt dread throughout an entire novel before.

Harris is running the EME, he has the remnants of the former government, his creators and betrayers, the Unified Authority, besieged and nearly broken. Then clones start getting sick, the common cold, but this epidemic is man made to kill every clone alive by triggering their death reflex, the neural programming in standard issue military clones as a means of control. Only one clone on earth doesn't have a a death reflex, his programming is of a violent and destructive nature. While millions of clones drop dead bleeding from the ears, Harris' system is being flooded with adrenaline and testosterone.

Once the last Liberator, Wayson is now the last clone, and the flu that killed his brethren may well being driving him homicidally insane. I think all fans of the series have wondered what it would look like if Harris went the way of his predecessors and became addicted to his combat reflex. We finally get it, and it is frightening.

*A note about the end(?) of a series that I have thoroughly enjoyed for many years. It felt to me, that almost from the very beginning, the clones were doomed. When they served their purpose, they would be discarded or eliminated. As seen in previous books, the UA tried both. In my mind, the clones are not unlike the domestic dog, in that they were bred for specific purposes, unfailingly loyal and eager to please, and completely at the mercy of their masters/creators. And much like the dogs we've bred and trained to revere us, I'm not sure the humanity of Kent's world deserved the clones. Their lives were wasted on the scale of millions. Never thanked or recognized for being humanity's savior, in fact never counted among the ranks of humanity at all.

Kent killed billions of people, natural born and synthetic alike, in his series, and it's only for the clones that I grieve.

****SPOILERS****

From the very beginning I wanted the clones to win. To throw of their genetic chains and claim the rights of sentient beings. The clones lost earth, Harris lost his empire, but Terraneau still has clones, brainwashed clones, forced back into the yoke of the UA.

There are SEALs on New Copenhagen as well. And I wouldn't be at all upset if there were future stories involving those psychotic little trolls. I loved that they were brought back to aide Harris in his final battle. One of my favorite lines in the book comes from Freeman when speaking about the SEALs, “Watch yourself around them. These clones are scarier than Harris, and a lot more scary than me.” To fans of the series, that is saying something!

And despite my surety that after ten books, dozens of battles, skirmishes, wars in which he was always front and center and more often than not the last man standing, Harris would meet his end, the slippery stubborn son of a bitch survived. Thanks in no small part to the only man who ever survived long time exposure to the Liberator, Ray Freeman.

I don't expect there to be more Harris novels, but I do hold out a bit of hope. Thank you Mr Kent, it's been a tragic, wild ride.

A fitting end to the series... 16 Dec 2014
By Aaron Spuler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
If you've not read any of the preceding books in the series, you would probably be able to enjoy this one. But you will miss out on a heck of a lot if this is your jumping in point. You wouldn't be as confused as I was when I read book #18 of the Robotech series, as Mr. Kent does a good recap, but many relationships won't have the depth, and nuances will be missed.

Once Apocalypse gets going, things really start to go badly in a huge way. I will refrain from giving any spoilers, but many familiar faces showed themselves in this novel. I was surprised at the ending, as I expected things to go another way. But after reflecting on it, I realized that I was as caught up in the moment as <redacted> was. But that wasn't who the character had shown himself to be in the past.

I was able to read a copy of the Titan edition, which included an additional short story. This tied up one loose end, and was a real treat.

I would like to see more novels set in this universe, but from what I hear, this is the end. Guess that goes to show that Mr. Kent did his job admirably yet again. I will be keeping an eye out for what he comes up with next.

A beautiful series comes to a perfect conclusion 27 Nov 2014
By just another guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Loved it! I think it's the best book in the series. All plots were closed but he left the door open for other stories in the universe. Glad to see the SEALs back. I always loved those guys. It was also great to see Harris go off his rocker insane. I knew he had it in him. Hands down my favorite series of books. Kent is a great storyteller. I am sad that this is the last one. But I've already come up with my own idea for how Harris uses the explorer. If I was the unifieds I would be sleeping with one eye open. Although I finished rereading the entire series the day before this book arrived I believe I'm going to turn around and do it again. Amazing characters, great story and a perfect ending. So glad I randomly picked up the clone republic in the ship I was stationed on's library. Thank you Mr. Kent for creating such an amazing series.

The Clone Series concludes with another fine story !!! 11 Dec 2014
By Rob Otts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Clone Series finishes with another fine story. This story changes the clone universe forever with the fall of the EME and the biological eradication of the clones. If you have come this far you should absolutely read this book!
Kent leaves things open for more but said this is the final Wayson Harris story.
Let's "clone" Kent for more Wayson books!!! 9 Dec 2014
By Amber Libenson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
For those of us who have been with Harris since day (book) 1, Apocalypse is the ultimate conclusion to a remarkable series. And boy, does it dive into the middle of things right off the bat!

Kent shows you his hand from the get go and does what I call psychological warfare on us (the readers). (Spoiler: If you haven't read the book yet, please stop here). Telling us the timeframe of when most of the characters die starting one and a half pages in is unsettling and vaguely terrorizing to the reader. Where can the book go from there?! I'll tell you, into utter chaos. Thanks, Kent. Thanks a lot! There are numerous twists and turns; some of what you figure out, most of what you don't. For those of you who think Kent is going to neatly bundle the series and tie up loose ends, that may be true but not in the classic way that authors do. Don't be surprised if panic sets in and you start thinking even Wayson and Freeman are going to die. Remember... Kent = psychological warfare. But hang in there, you won't get rid of them that easily. I will say this: it was nice to get closure on Wayson and his ever-changing cohorts after ten books. It was even nicer, along the way, that there were neverending surprises (welcome back Yamashiro & SEALS!), bye bye, you b@#$!h, Sunny! I've been waiting for you to die and it didn't disappoint!

It was also entertaining to see a different and sometimes parallel story & perspective from Freeman. This angle was very fascinating and added a new element to the way the story is told. One which I liked. Though I have to tell you, for the first third of the book, I was pissed at Freeman since his "side" of the story didn't kick in until then.

Ultimately, I loved this book. It was just what I needed and more than I wanted to say goodbye to a beloved (is that the right word?) character that I have grown to love. I'll miss Wayson. And Freeman. But the way the book ended, I'm still crossing my fingers for more?!!! What do you think?
