Imitation by Heather Hildenbrand

Published July 29, 2014 by Alloy Powered by Amazon

Everyone is exactly like me. There is no one like me.

Ven wrestles with these contradicting truths every day. A clone of wealthy eighteen-year-old Raven Rogen, Ven knows everything about the girl she was created to serve: the clothes she wears, the boys she loves, the friends she loves to hate. Yet she’s never met the Authentic Raven face-to-face.

Imitations like Ven only get to leave the lab when they’re needed—to replace a dead Authentic, donate an organ, or complete a specific mission. And Raven has never needed Ven . . . until now.

When there is an attack on Raven’s life, Ven is thrust into the real world, posing as Raven to draw out the people who tried to harm her. But as Ven dives deeper into Raven’s world, she begins to question everything she was ever told. She exists for Raven, but is she prepared to sacrifice herself for a girl she’s never met?

My Thoughts...

The idea of clones being made by the rich to save themselves and those they love intrigued me.    The added bonus is that this book is written by Heather Hildenbrand, who I enjoy.

Heather did a great job setting up the characters and the worlds they live in, and giving enough background.   It was a slow build to get to the true action of this story.  Once we got to the depth of the story it just sped by.    I was unable to stop reading and finished this book in one day.

Heather Hildenbrand is an author that has never let me down and I know I can go to when I want a story that will pull me in and entertain me from the first page to the very last page.
