The Clone Republic by Steven Kent


My thanks to sharonae44 who suggested Steven Kent’s book to me. I was swapping for a David Weber or Drake book with her and she said she was reading this book and felt if I liked Drake and Weber, I would like it. She was right. His style is not as emotional as Weber. I didn’t find myself identifying with the protagonist like I often do with Weber, Drake or Ringo. The concept of clones as disposable troops was dismal but frighteningly plausible. The unwieldy aspect of a galaxy wide federation of worlds leads into the next novel. This book was primarily a coming of age of a young man who discovers he is a military clone. I recommend it.

Body of work of Steven Kent
