Review: Clan by Realm Lovejoy

Publication Date: 12th November 2013
Pages: 350
Source: Received review copy.

Synopsis

Clans are Unity.

No variation. No deviation.

On Clades, to be a Clan is to be an exact copy. 
A perfect society cloning themselves to survive, 
even as the zombie-like Frags threaten to overrun them 
on an unforgiving planet. 

Clan 1672 (privately known as Twain) 
was never supposed to survive the Incubation Tank. 
But he did. Illegally. 
He is different from the other Clans. 

A secret that could destroy him.


Book Trailer



My Thoughts

I loved it! Really Enjoyed it!!!

Never read a sci-fi before as I always thought that they are not my cup of tea with all those confusing and mind numbing scientific references. But this year I decided to give chance to every genre so when I spotted a chance to do so after reading the blurb I instantly requested to be part of this review tour. I loved that trailer and what intrigued me most was the idea of a whole community made up of exactly same looking people. 

*SPOILER ALERT* This story follows Twain a.k.a 1672 (as people in his world addressed him) and the fellow clans he come across. He lives on a planet Clades and people on that planet are known as clans who are exact copies. The most interesting part about this planet is that a human (scientist) created a whole civilization of clones who were the same exact copy of him. He raised them as a part of an earth project to divert the harmful space virus from entering Earth. 
All Clans were exactly same, photocopies of a single human Father Krume, no woman only clones- men each known with there unique ID number and had a boring monotonous routine. Twain was different and there is no place for difference on Clades but he is given a chance to live. On his first day out in society he meets the rebellious Buster and a bully Chad. And the following days are filled with deathly adventures and many eye-popping revelations and many myths are broken.
*SPOILER END*

This nail biting read has amazing twist and turns which kept me hooked-up till the end. The situation felt almost real and has awesome and nicely sketched characters. 
The plot is filled with so many unpredictable surprises that after 50% book I stopped the guessing game and kept my eyes glued to look for the next bomb in the plot.

Twain is a frail (physically) clan with a really strong heart, his curious mind led him to various eye opening and life threatening facts.
Buster is a rebellious kind who break many rules but with a kind heart who loved his friends and can do anything for them. He was like 'Robin Hood' for the needy and helpless. I liked him a lot for his blunt nature.
Chad was a soft heart with hard exterior. Initially a bully who didn't liked Twain and Buster who eventually became the most amazing friend and loved Tawin.

Overall amazing read with stupendous suspense and equally awesome thrill ride sprinkled with a little tinge of emotions. The only down point I felt was that Chad and Buster had a little lacking back story.

I give this fantabulous book 4.5 out of 5.
