The Sigma Surrogate focuses on Keke, an investigative journalist and major supporting character in the trilogy. Here she is following a lead that promises an explosive story that will shock the country if it pans out. It involves the SurroSisters, a tight, militaristic, female, tribe-like organization. Their mission is to combat the ongoing fertility crises by recruiting women capable of conceiving into the order of the Surrogate Sisters. The Sisters are above reproach and anything that affects them will shake an already tottering society. Keke ropes her best friend Kirsten (main protagonist of the trilogy) into the investigation and enlists the help of a dark web hacker with unexpected talents.
I've read all of Lawrence's fiction and she has real talent for realistic world-building and smoothly combining plot, characters, dramatic tension, and action into fast paced narratives that are hard to put down once you start reading. She is firmly on my "will always read" list.
Since The Sigma Surrogate is set immediately before the beginning of Why You Were Taken, the first book in the trilogy, should it be read first? Honestly, it works either way. If you haven't read the trilogy then start here and immediately purchase Why You Were Taken, How We Found You, and What Have We Done: you'll want to see how the story plays out. And you'll have a "I know something this character doesn't" experience. If you have read the trilogy then you will have the fun of discovering the back story of several characters and enjoy the subversive twists that will upset what you thought you knew.
I would not have thought it necessary because the characters seem perfectly whole and rounded to me when I read the series. But then I read The Sigma Surrogate and realised ‘what do i know!’ Suddenly it seemed both necessary and fabulous.
In this piece of the series, Keke investigates some odd goings on in the world of state surrogates, she meets important characters in future books, and Kirsten’s whole existence is questioned. Lots happens in this little book and it is impossible to put down.
I just love how Lawrence writes – her stories are as good as her writing skill. The words are easy to read and unfold into something you want to read. The combination keeps the reader going long after a sensible bed time has come and gone.
In this novella we get to meet some of the characters of the series, and also get some glimpses of the future world Lawrence has envisioned. Its an interesting world that gets more interesting in the series, when Lawrence has the time and space to expand many of her futuristic ideas.
I challenge anyone to read this book and not immediately want to read the whole series. That is just not gonna happen.
I loved it when Keke dove into a dangerous mystery, and pulled Marko along with her, much to his amazement
It was beyond easy to get into Sigma Surrogate, as JT's writing style simply sucked me into the story!
Get the book and go for one helluva of a ride as Keke lives life to the fullest, with lots of suspense, action, and ummm, yes, sex!
We follow Keke, who is a biopunk journalist, who won’t stop till she exposes the truth. We learn more about this character with some of the events that lead up to the start of Why you Were Taken.
It’s fast-paced, with characters that get your heart racing. Lawrence has a way to write some scenes that don’t come across as corny, some authors can take a few notes.
She introduces you to most of the characters that are in the When Tomorrow Calls series and this makes you want to either reread the books (in my case) or I’m sure if you are a new reader will get you excited to read the rest of the story.
