Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up—As this story opens, clones Miranda (going by the name Kristin), Sequel (from the same clone family as Miranda), Rhys, Peter, and Noah are trying to blend in as typical high school students, but without much success. They are super soldiers, who can send out mental energy that causes people to panic or go insane. On prom night, Sequel hears a phrase that awakens "Nina" within her mind, causing her to kill Noah and turn against her former team. The relationship of memory and identity is examined as it is only memory shots that allow team members to keep their memories intact and thus remain themselves. Miranda downloads Noah's memory after his death and is able to tap into his knowledge and thoughts. Meanwhile, she is afraid that some secret phrase may awaken a "Nina" within her. Miranda is the focus of the story, as she, Peter, and Rhys follow Sequel/Nina into the Black, where Gane watches over The Verge. They find out that the universe of the Black has many worlds, the most powerful of which is True Earth. In order to "cleanse" worlds of human inhabitants, the razor-clawed Eyeless have been set free, and if Miranda and her team can't obtain the Torch that controls them, the Earth that Miranda knows will be their next target. The book is heavy on action and occasional romance, without a lot of subtlety or depth. It ends with a sword fight in the Oval Office of the White House, followed by a trip through the Black to True Earth, where Miranda makes a sacrifice that sets up the cliff-hanger ending. A good choice where the first book is popular.—Maggie Knapp, Trinity Valley School, Fort Worth, TX

From Booklist

Engineered to be lethal assassins, Miranda and her fellow cloned friends are on the run and trying to lead normal lives. It’s not long, however, before one of them sets her own deadly course. The chase to find the rogue clone unleashes a war of worlds with terrifying monsters, and Miranda is forced to make the ultimate sacrifice to save the future of the planet. The love triangle begun in False Memory (2012) becomes even more complicated and unusual in this sequel. This is just one of many surprises that fuels the high energy level and keeps readers guessing until the final installment. Grades 8-11. --Angela Leeper

"False Sight" the sequel to False Memory is a fast-paced science fiction thriller. In this story Miranda wants to move beyond the truth of her origin as a genetically altered clone, and enjoy some normalcy with her friends at school. But, what she soon discovers when one of her friends turns rogue is that she's far from being a typical teenager and that she may not only be instrumental in destroying her friends but also the world she loves.

This well-written plot with its unique idioms progresses quickly and takes the reader over the boundary that separates the universes. The characters with their complex personalities are as natural with their intrinsic fighting ability as they are interesting. Miranda is brave, strong, and impetuous while appearing vulnerable at times. Her boyfriend Peter is a confident, shrewd leader who shows sound judgement even when Miranda is at risk. Their friends Rhys and Noah are trustworthy , loyal and steadfast. In this segment Dan Krokos also introduces new characters; Noble a smart,determined scientist , Sophia the tough warrior and Commander Gane the brave, but deluded leader of Verge. Even the antagonists are unforgettable with their sinister plan and warped dedication to New Earth.

I loved this captivating novel from the first page to the last. And was left speechless by the ending when I thought nothing more ominous could threaten the heroine and her friends. I highly recommend "False Sight" and can't wait to read the next book in the series.

Wowsa. This is one of the books that's nearly impossible to review because it went places you never would have imagined. After reading book one I knew that Krokos had the ability to take us on a rollercoaster ride of a lifetime. But wow. This is no normal coaster, people, this is Kingda Ka.

Krokos made our hearts beat fast from the very first page. There was no rest with this one. He threw perhaps the biggest bomb I ever would have expected to be thrown our way less than 35 pages into the book and he never let up. A book like this simply has to be read in a single sitting. The amazing writing style and the buffet of plot twists simply demands it.

The Roses are trying to start a new life as suburban teenagers. They want to fit in instead of cause complete chaos and destruction. Unfortunately, we all know that can't happen and the past comes to haunt them while they begin a journey one never saw coming. Normal simply is not a possibility for the crew, so naturally the plot would explode with action, fighting, scheming, and battles galore.

I think that what I loved most about this book was the usage of hallucinations being an actual thing. Miranda saw things, she felt them, she connected with them. What she saw I will not reveal, but it was a beyond unique way to lead the way to certain aspects of this story while maintaining the group and keeping us on our toes. I thought that it was very well done and unexpected. Combine this execution with an explosive adventure and you have this book in a nutshell. A wonderful little nutshell that will never be forgotten.

Miranda's character growth in this one was also spectacular because she learns more about her past, the truth, and what the future holds.

All Miranda longs for is normal, which is something she will never have. In False Memory, the first book in the series, Miranda is a 17-year-old girl who awakens on a park bench with no idea how she got there, and goes on to discover that she is part of an, "elite-force of genetically altered teens who possess flawless combat skills and powers strong enough to destroy a city, " (Quote from book #1 synopsis). She has discovered what she is, but more than anything she would just love to forget that and just spend time with her friends and her boyfriend. However, because of who she is, or what she is...and what she knows, it is clear that is going to happen.

False Sight is a a treat for young science fiction lovers, and is filled with action-packed adventure, genetically engineered war machines, teenagers who have been engineered to be perfect warriors, time travel to other dimensions, and it is all centered around Miranda and her gang who are on a mission to discover the truth about themselves and their mission. They wind up finding out something that causes them to reevaluate everything they thought they knew, as they resolve to do what they know is right, despite the risk and the sacrifices they will have to make along the way. In this sequel, the author takes the story into a direction that incorporates more of the science fiction/fantasy elements, while making some unexpected twists and turns in the plot that keep you on your toes. This is a very high-action, suspenseful, and sometimes mind boggling adventure that would really appeal to middle grade and high school students. It will be interesting to see where Krokos takes this story in the next installment.

I am blown away. Just when I thought that every dystopian author was recycling the same concepts over and over ... Whalla!! New and fresh and a roller coaster of an emotional ride ....This book is nothing like you would ever expect. If you like dystopian sci-fi then this is the perfect series for you ... Start with the first book first or you won't get the true depth and impact of every pivotal and essential character in this series ... Soooo good!! I hope hope hope that the final book comes super soon!!! This author rocks!!!
