Martyr—otherwise known as Jason 3:3—is one of hundreds of clones kept in a remote facility called Jason Farms. Told that he has been created to save humanity, Martyr has just one wish before he is scheduled to ‘expire’ in less than a month. To see the sky.
Abby Goyer may have just moved to Alaska, but she has a feeling something strange is going on at the farm where her father works. But even this smart, confident girl could never have imagined what lies beneath a simple barn. Or what would happen when a mysterious boy shows up at her door, asking about the stars.
As the reality of the Jason Experiment comes to light, Martyr is caught between two futures—the one for which he was produced and the one Abby believes God created him to have. Time is running out, and Martyr must decide if a life with Abby is worth leaving everything he’s ever known.
Martyr, also known as Jason 3:3, is just one of many Jasons living on Jason’s Farm. He will expire on his 18th birthday and his blood will be used as an antidote for the people who live above ground breathing toxic air. At least that is what he has been told all his life. He has never been outside and dreams of seeing the sky before he expires. But what if what he’s been told is a lie and the air isn’t toxic? What is his real purpose in life?
I started Replication not knowing how much I’d enjoy it. While I enjoy reading some science fiction novels, I haven’t read that many books that deal with cloning. I’m so glad that I ended up really enjoying Replication and it was enjoyable from the beginning! 🙂
Some of my favorite characters were Martyr – the way he protected Baby and Hummer was so sweet and brave, his character just seemed so nice – and Abby – I liked the way she categorized things, in her mind, in a pro-column or con-column.
The doctors (except Dr. Goyer) were very creepy and how they treated the clones was so mean.
Replication made me think more about cloning and whether or not it should be done. I personally don’t like the idea of it – for many reasons.
While Replication ended well, I would have liked an epilogue – that showed what happens later. But even without that, Replication was really good and I recommend it if you enjoy a good Teen or Sci-fi novel.
