After months of pretending to be Raven Rogen, Ven feels less like a clone and more like a human than ever. But when Raven’s father, Titus—the same man who engineered Ven—discovers her plan to escape, everything she’s worked so hard for is taken away in one explosive moment.
Now she’s imprisoned in Twig City, the secret warehouse where she grew up. She spends her days plotting ways to get back to the outside world, determined to topple Titus’s empire and free every last Imitation. But Titus’s reach is extensive and his plans are more deadly than she realized.
In the shocking conclusion to the Imitation series, one wrong move could mean the end for Ven and everyone she’s come to love.
Generation by Heather Hildenbrand is the third book in the Clone Chronicles series and it was a solid conclusion to the series. If you haven’t checked this series out yet and you are looking for a story that ties together science fiction and some interesting characters into a YA Dystopian, consider checking it out. I will do my best to review this without giving away any spoilers but I can’t promise anything.
The story picks up with Ven waking up to find that things haven’t changed much for her since she was put under by Titus. When she wakes up in Twig City, she finds her situation to be a bit more dangerous as Titus is willing to do whatever he needs to in order to protect himself and his interests.
Ven and her friends are right at the center of the story and you will find that Hildenbrand continues to build out the story with the right mix of action and deception along with solid characters. There are some changes to the cast based on how book two ended but you will find that the secondary characters that Hildenbrand surrounds Ven with help to move the story along. Another thing that Hilendbrand does well is build out the world that Ven inhabits. The fact that Titus is able to get away with the things he gets away with and how those outside of this group don’t even realize the impact makes me shudder.
The way the story is tied together provided a great conclusion to the series and I’m glad I came across this series. Hildenbrand did a wonderful job with this and I look forward to seeing what she does next. If you are looking for a YA dystopian that shows great character development and has an interesting story, consider checking this series out. I know this review is short and doesn’t say too much but as this is the third book of the series, I don’t want to ruin anything.
