Summary: In the city of Kersh, everyone must eliminate their genetic Alternate twin, raised by another family, before their twentieth birthday. West Grayer, 15, has trained as a fighter, and has one month to hunt and kill her Alt. A tragic misstep shakes her confidence. Guilty, grieving, she feels unworthy, runs from her Alt and from love – both can destroy her.
The first chapter hits you in the gut. There’s non-stop action and a love story, but the love story is subtle enough not to distract you from the premise. It’s a bleak world, but Elise Chapman has created characters you can care about.
4 out of 5 stars.
