    While Beta has a fascinating premise of clones in a perfect world, there are a lot of elements in the plot that I found either unnecessary, or very off putting At first I thought I could overlook these qualms, but they kept piling up on top of one another until it toppled and became too much for my taste The ending, however, almost brought this to a 3 stars as it actually caught me off guard for once I would never have expected it though this may not be the case for everyone and it makes me While Beta has a fascinating premise of clones in a perfect world, there are a lot of elements in the plot that I found either unnecessary, or very off putting At first I thought I could overlook these qualms, but they kept piling up on top of one another until it toppled and became too much for my taste The ending, however, almost brought this to a 3 stars as it actually caught me off guard for once I would never have expected it though this may not be the case for everyone and it makes me somewhat curious about the sequel Could other readers enjoy this one Most definitely If constant drug use by adults and teens , rapes, and slavery bothers you, however I suggest you avoid it Beta s world building is depicted very slow and elaborately, filled with long descriptions of the pretty, perfect island they re residing on I enjoyed this at first as it creates a wonderful, scenic portrayal of Demesne, though after a while I found myself skipping these winded paragrap...

    The cover of this book is so amazingly beautiful that I spent a few minutes being creepy and caressing it The satin finish of it complements the colours and the model is so incredibly beautiful and the cover merges so very fantastically with the content in the novel I went into this book knowing that it was about clones and that s about it I have read other books by Cohn and liked them so I was reasonably confident that I would appreciate the writing if not love the story I didn t start the The cover of this book is so amazingly beautiful that I spent a few minutes being creepy and caressing it The satin finish of it complements the colours and the model is s...
