Replication by Jill Williamson

Summary ~ Martyr—otherwise known as Jason 3:3—is one of hundreds of clones kept in a remote facility called Jason Farms. Told that he has been created to save humanity, Martyr has just one wish before he is scheduled to “expire” in less than a month. To see the sky. Abby Goyer may have just moved to Alaska, but she has a feeling something strange is going on at the farm where her father works. But even this smart, confident girl could never have imagined what lies beneath a simple barn. Or what would happen when a mysterious boy shows up at her door, asking about the stars.

Jill Williamson is the author of the Blood of Kings Trilogy which I really liked. She is also a two-time Christy award winner. I was really excited to hear that she was going to be writing for Zondervan. (Kudos to them for paying attention, their teen line-up is great.)

I loved Replication, but it needed to be longer! I wanted more dialogue between Abby & Martyr and more description of Alaska. (Hopefully a sequel is forthcoming) The interaction between Abby and her peers is the strongest part of this story. Abby immediately attracts the attention of JD, a rich, popular jock who is also smart. Oh no, triple threat! JD’s problem is that he can’t make up his mind whether to be a jerk or a likable guy. Abby doesn’t want to write him off without reason, but she is determined not to be taken advantage of. It’s refreshing to read about a girl who isn’t just another victim. The contrast between JD and Martyr and how they treat Abby is very well done. I hope I haven’t seen the last of the Jasons!

    Thanks for reviewing the book, Claire! I’m hoping to write two more. But it depends on how fast I can write these other books. Maybe I need to join Chris and Jacob in a word war… Hmmm.

    I am also hoping for a sequel! Enjoyed reading your thoughts on Replication! 🙂

  3. I feel like chanting, “Sequel! Sequel!” but what I really want to say is “Two more sequels!” which just doesn’t sound as great. 🙂 I agree with you there, Claire! More Martyr and Abby, for sure! 🙂


  4. Ohh, I hear you! It was awesome at the length that it was…but I wouldn’t have complained if it had been longer. 😉
