In Homecoming, author Austin continues her examination of what it means to be human. Can a cloned human be a person, with all the rights associated, or is the clone merely property that can be bought, sold, and even killed at a whim?
This book is one of the best I’ve read recently. The plot is excellent, both in complexity and pacing. Characters are well-defined and believable. The book is well written and well edited. There is only one possible issue: the narrative is rife with profanity, obscenity, and vulgarity, even to the point of sometimes feeling gratuitous. If you are bothered by coarse language, this book is not for you. Otherwise, I highly recommend it.
Kalin (Project Kata) now possesses many incredible abilities. He has fierce and deadly claws, chameleon technology (invisibility), and the ability to run extremely fast. Because of all the extensive modifications that have been done to Kalin , the Trandellian government wants him for their very own super-soldier. They threaten to send Tau back to GenTech’s cloning lab unless Kalin follows their orders. Project Tau does not want to go back to his owners who have tortured and abused him for the past two years.
I really liked that this book featured Tau more than in the first book. He becomes more and more “human,” and I fell in love with his character. He is so childlike and inquisitive.
The writer exhibits a genuine writing style that is so easy to read, and it was hard to put the book down. I am not quite sure if there will be more to this series. The book ended in a way that you think it will continue, but also has a definite ending. I will definitely be on the lookout for more books from this gifted author.
I rated “Homecoming” by Jude Austin a score of 5 out of 5 stars because the author really knows how to reel her readers in. The fast-paced action, uniqueness of the story, and the vivid descriptions of the characters were so fantastic. The second book is more insightful, which makes it better than “Project Tau”. Like the first book, there are inappropriate scenes, such as torture, violence, and implicit sex (i.e., rape). The recommended audience would be mature readers who do not get easily offended or repulsed.
You do not need to read the first book to understand this one, however, it is highly recommended!
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars for the heartfelt story and no typos or grammar mistakes that I could find.
I liked this book better than the first book in the series. Part of that is because the reader gets to see so much more of the future world that Austin has built. Also seeing Tau out of the lab and trying to adapt to the outside world was really interesting. This book continues the address the ethics of cloning human beings and how those clones would be defined. I highly recommend this book.
