CLONE WARS: ARMAGEDDON
New Concepts Publishing
Rating: 3 Cups
Lena is an historian, studying the past and living the safe life that her foster father wanted for her. She wants him to move from the dangerous part of town to her apartment, but knows the old man will never go where the government can watch him. He is paranoid, but she loves him anyway. When he suddenly changes and wants to live with her, she does not know what is wrong but suspects he has been cloned and that her life is in danger.
Dax is the leader of the rebels and has been on his own for a long time. He resents the fact that his father took in Lena and her brother when he found them on the streets after their father’s murder. He cannot help being attracted to the beautiful Lena.
Lena is captured and the only way the rebels can get her scientist brother’s help is to save her from the enemy. He just wonders if he is saving the real Lena or her clone. While trying to help the man who literally saved her life as a child, Lena is drawn into a war. Thrown first into prison and then rescued—only to be imprisoned again—she falls in love with her jailer, who seems to believe that she is her clone.
This is a very compelling futuristic story. The author really does well with the classic rebels against the evil government scenario. Lena, the innocent and scholarly historian, is very well drawn and her character really grows throughout the story. Dax is dark and sexy and very alpha. The abbreviated words in the dialogue were a little annoying, but the story is full of action and romance. I really liked it.
