Product Description

About the Author

Born in California but raised in Hawaii, novelist/video game fanatic Steven L. Kent turned a life-long joystick addiction into a 15-year gig writing for publications like MSNBC, "Boy's Life, USA Today, Chicago Tribune," and "Japan Times." After publishing the 600-page "The Ultimate History of Video Games," Kent satisfied his Pac-Man-angst and set his sights on fiction. Having just submitted "The Clone Elite," the fourth book in his "Wayson Harris Trilogy," Kent is currently writing a standalone sci-fi novel while he develops a new series based on the Unified Authority.

This is a story of a marine in an army in which all the other non-commissioned personnel are identical to each other.

It is the first book of a series, which works best when read in the chronological sequence, which is currently:

1) The Clone Republic
2) Rogue Clone
3) The Clone Alliance (Ace Science Fiction)
4) The Clone Elite
5) The Clone Betrayal
6) The Clone Empire
7) The Clone Redemption (Due October 2011)

If you are planning to read the whole series, tackle this book, the "The Clone Republic," first because the subsequent books give away most of the mysteries which the central character, Wayson Harris, is trying to understand in the early part of the first one.

Indeed, although I have given links here to the later books for those who may want to order several of the books at once, I would advise against even reading eviews of the later books until you have read this one. It is difficult to describe "Rogue Clone" or the subsequent novels in the series without giving away a bit too much about this first one.

I'm not sure what book that other guy read. One of the best parts of The Clone Republic was the way the characters developed. That's the point of the book, isn't it? It's about an army in which everyone looks alike and is made with the same DNA, yet they do not act or think alike.
Kent pulls that off quite well.
About this book being boring, it did drag a bit in the middle when the main character and his sidekick go on an unexpected vacation to Hawaii. That was a bit strange, but boring? The book was never boring, not even during that unnecessary side trip.

Whilst this book is new to the UK market it was originally released in the US in 2006. Whilst written a few years before, the book is definitely one that is in vogue at the moment as clones take the centre stage in brutal bloody combat to reach the objectives that those in power want. Death tally's matter little and to be honest its this sort of hard core militaria mindset that really brings this book to life.

Told through the point of view of Harris, the lead character has a lot of facets that allow the reader to get hold of this bleak future with relative ease. Its works wonderfully well with cracking prose and were this a game I believe there would be a cult following in a very short time. (Which really isn't that surprising as the author did start out in the game industry.) All round a solid enough beginning for a series and whilst the ending left you on a cliffhanger, I am lucky enough to be starting book two shortly. I just hope that the momentum built up in the first is matched in the second.

Having read all four of the Clone series I just flicked through the reviews in Amazon and found one on here that slates the book.

So I looked at the authors the reviewer recommends. Linnea Sinclair books have covers where the central theme seems to be more Mills and Boon than SciFi. Mike Shepherd covers seems to be promoting female spacers and I am yet to try Ian Douglas.

The whole Clone series rocks and Wayson Harris isn't so much plastic as alone. I will say no more. The books are engaging and whilst they do follow a pattern I cannot recommend them highly enough if you wish to be entertained.
