I did not intend to stay up reading this book until the early morning hours, but that was the result.' J.R. Parker Author of Kestrel's Midnight Song -- J.R. Parker, , Author

This is Christian fiction, so those strongly opposed to religious novels may want to stay clear of this story. However, it's a really interesting premise with some great morals and, even though I really hate preachy novels, I thought this was a good read overall. While it's true that the religious aspect does come on quite strong in some parts, including the quoting and deciphering of scripture, in retrospect, it flows rather nicely with the story as Martyr, a clone set to expire, has never thought of a Creator at all. In every society, there is some type of higher being that is worshipped, and if not worshipped, the people of the society at least have heard of a higher being, but Martyr has never thought about it, nor has anyone ever brought it up to him. Thus, watching Martyr's reaction to Abby's assertion that Martyr does indeed have a higher purpose in life and that God loves him was actually really interesting. Of course, like a toddler, Martyr latches on to anything new--he's never had a chance to see or experience anything outside the farm, and so it's debatable as to whether or not Martyr really believes or is just in awe of this newfound Being, but that's a debate for another time. Regardless, this novel tackles some very interesting topics that YA doesn't usually pursue, making it entirely unique in its own right.

Religion aside, though, Williamson does a great job fleshing out her characters and her storyline. I loved that Abby is a very strong female lead, a Christian, and yet a flawed individual. Williamson does not make her out to be "holier than thou," and Abby succumbs to the same temptations, thoughts, and actions that the rest of us do, which, ultimately, makes her human as a very likable character.

I am not a very big fan of fantasy, sci-fi, or paranormal books. In fact, the majority of books I've read in these genres, I didn't like. Not so with Jill Williamson and her newest book, Replication! Taking the very interesting and touchy subject of human cloning, she spins a fantastic and gripping tale about Jason:3:3--nicknamed Martyr--and his desire to see the sky before he less than 30 days.

I really liked getting to know Abby in Replication. She seemed to have such a sweet personality, and yet she had such a "teenage-ish" feel with the way her scenes are written...they were all wonderfully done. And whenever a scene was written from Martyr's perspective, it was so unique. The way he describes things he's never seen--TV, runny eggs, a pregnant woman--was so innocently sweet--I even laughed at a few humorous moments.

Coupled with a great cast of characters, Williamson also created an intense and suspenseful plot that kept the reader on edge. Especially for the last half of the book--it just took off! Written for the YA genre, there wasn't thing questionable within the book that younger teen readers might have a problem with it. And while Replication is in the YA genre, I think readers of all ages would enjoy this adventure!

If there's one thing I love most in reading, is when the author can grab my attention from the beginning and never have a dull moment--and Jill Williamson did just that in Replication! I was riveted to the pages, intrigued by the characters, and completely lost in the suspense and action!

I reviewed this book for Team Novel Teen Blog Tour. Special thanks to the author for sending me a review copy. It was not required that I give a positive review, but solely to express my own thoughts and opinions of this book, which I have done.

Format: Hardcover
Jason 3:3, nickname, "Martyr," lives in a tightly-controlled underground facility supervised by a team of scientists, in a community of other genetically-engineered boys. Within their blood lies the antidote to a toxin that has rendered the surface of Earth virtually uninhabitable. They believe they are humanity's last hope. Martyr is nearly 18 years old, his DNA-encoded expiration date. He is content to die, knowing his sacrifice will enable the survival of thousands, though his fondest wish is to see the sky with his own eyes, just for a few moments. One day, an opportunity for escape presents itself, and he impulsively seizes it. What he discovers beyond the facility will reveal a terrifying truth, and a desperate hope.

Meanwhile, Abby Goyer is less than pleased about her biologist father's new job, which has unceremoniously whisked them away to a little jerkwater town in the Alaskan countryside. She's coping as best she can. The standoffish locals have her feeling like a freak, and she's caught the unwelcome attention of J.D. Kane, the boorish, unfairly handsome captain of the football team. Just when she thinks her life can't get any worse, Abby finds a strange boy hiding in her bedroom, shivering and bald, acting like he just dropped in from another planet.

And he's a dead ringer for J.D. Kane.

Replication - The Jason Experiment, is a near-future tale of suspense in the spirit of The Island and Robin Cook's medical thrillers, written by Jill Williamson, author of the award-winning Blood of Kings young-adult fantasy trilogy.

It asks a lot of profound questions along the way. What might happen when a person who is nearly a blank slate confronts a complex world that is nothing like he's been led to believe? Is destiny governed by heredity?
