Synopsis

 Madison Mackenzie Rhodes, Maddie for short, would call her life “comfortable.” She works in a call center, lives with her best friend of fifteen years, and spends most of her free time with her family. Her entire world is turned upside down when she finds out that she is a clone, created to hide the secret that we are not alone in this galaxy. Her counterpart, going by the nickname Mack, works for the Intergalactic Security Commission, which works with a coalition of other planets that protect each other and create technology. When an enemy rises from within the ISC that targets both Maddie and Mack, they must work together to save their lives as well as the planet.

***Derek – #NerdGirlDad’s  Review***
 For the first time ever I read a few other reviews before writing this and found that I was one of several hooked sufficiently by the story to read it at one sitting. This is a debut novel and the first of a series. I thoroughly recommend it to any sci-fi readers as, as they will know only too well, most new sci-fi stories are just unbelievable rubbish. This one, however, is a well paced, well written fast moving story that will keep you interested and wishing to know what happens to each of the characters.
So – why only four stars out of five?
I can excuse a lot in a debut novel, but I have two criticisms. First, the author needs a good editor or needs to do the job better herself. As it was so good I kept reading, and I advise that you do the same even when you realise just how often the same phrases keep being used: it’s definitely worth the effort. (This is only one of the many things that I am sure my own editor would have thrown back at me – there are others.)
Second, there are, in my opinion, too many loose ends not tied up at the end. We are told there will be follow-ups and even get to read an excerpt, but I would still have preferred a cleaner ending.
Nevertheless, my advice is to GET YOUR COPY AND READ IT.
