It is funny how there are so many times during life that I feel like everyone is exaclty like me and I am like no one. We all struggle to fit in and then one day, we struggle to be unique. At what point does this change? Imagine being made to to the replacement of your true self, but when you are finally called forward, it will be your death.
This is the life of Ven in Imitation. She is happy and content in her current life being the product of a real person. But she is called forth to do her duty. When this happens, her entire world falls apart.
it is exactly like she never knew it would be. There is a tyrant controlling her every move with motives she may never know. She meets true friends and those friends who are really enemies. She begins to learn who she really is and can be, by becoming another person. Her imitation.
Looking forward to the next book in the series, Deviation.
Everyone is exactly like me. There is no one like me.
Ven wrestles with these contradicting truths every day. A clone of wealthy eighteen-year-old Raven Rogen, Ven knows everything about the girl she was created to serve: the clothes she wears, the boys she loves, the friends she loves to hate. Yet she’s never met the Authentic Raven face-to-face.
Imitations like Ven only get to leave the lab when they’re needed—to replace a dead Authentic, donate an organ, or complete a specific mission. And Raven has never needed Ven . . . until now.
When there is an attack on Raven’s life, Ven is thrust into the real world, posing as Raven to draw out the people who tried to harm her. But as Ven dives deeper into Raven’s world, she begins to question everything she was ever told. She exists for Raven, but is she prepared to sacrifice herself for a girl she’s never met?
