Publisher's Description

Abby Goyer is forced to move to rural Alaska when her father unexpectedly takes a job in a remote laboratory. She becomes suspicious of her father’s decisions, and when she goes to investigate his research she finds more than what she was looking for. Martyr, one of hundreds of identical clones, escaped from the underground lab Abby’s father works at, with one wish: to see the sky before he fulfills his purpose and “expires.” Abby helps Martyr see God has a purpose for his life, one that may be

One of the things that defines a person is uniqueness, and Jill Williamson reveals this in a startling new way in her science fiction novel Replication. J:3:3, nicknamed Martyr, is one of dozens of identical boys who live more like prisoners than teenagers in an underground bunker. Told they’re serving humanity by being sacrificed for an antidote to the world’s toxicity, they live to give themselves up on their eighteenth birthdays. Martyr’s ready to do this, but he has one wish first: to see the sky. This longing leads him on an adventure he never could have dreamed of.

Abby Goyer's life, though more normal, is no less difficult. Since her mother’s death, she and her dad have been at odds about issues of science and faith. When her dad moves to Alaska for a job, Abby struggles to fit in and finds herself the object of heartthrob-and jerk-JD Kane’s attention. But there is more to JD than anyone knows.

Williamson superbly captures the themes of individuality, purpose, life value, and the true meaning of love as defined in I Corinthians 13. Martyr discovers the difference between what his human creator planned him for and what his Creator really intended for him. Abby shows her dad the authenticity of her faith and finds someone whose innocent love is the polar opposite of JD's yearnings.

Replication takes a few chapters to provide all the backstory, and besides the heavy flow of information, this first section moves slowly. Keep reading. Once Martyr and Abby decide what they have to do, the action is gripping and nonstop. The plot mirrors the 2005 Ewan McGregor film The Island, but Williamson makes her version more kid-friendly and throws in a few different twists. Readers can get distracted by aspects of normal life Martyr doesn’t understand, but this ignorance can also be humorous.

Because of a few scenes in Replication, I suggest parents preview it for kids younger than 12 years old. Williamson never describes mature content, but she alludes to it. Otherwise, I highly recommend this book. Guys and girls who enjoy science fiction, romance, or just an action-filled story will devour it. - Alexandra Mellen, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
