Replica Blog Tour: Excerpt + Giveaway: Replica by Jenna Black

Hi guys! First of all, I'm posting this a bit late. Just got home from work, sorry! Thank you to Precious Gem Book Tour for making me a part of this!

Today I have an excerpt for this and if you want more, continue reading at Jessibella Reads!

Jenna Black is your typical writer. Which means she's an "experience junkie." She got her BA in physical anthropology and French from Duke University.

Once upon a time, she dreamed she would be the next Jane Goodall, camping in the bush making fabulous discoveries about primate behavior. Then, during her senior year at Duke, she did some actual research in the field and made this shocking discovery: primates spend something like 80% of their time doing such exciting things as sleeping and eating.

Concluding that this discovery was her life's work in the field of primatology, she then moved on to such varied pastimes as grooming dogs and writing technical documentation. She writes paranormal romance for Tor and urban fantasy for Bantam Dell.

Book Description:

Paperback, 368 pages
July 16th 2013, Tor Teen

Breathtaking new YA SF from the author of the Faeriewalker series

Sixteen-year-old Nadia Lake comes from a high-class Executive family in the Corporate States. Her marriage has been arranged with the most powerful family in her state, which means she lives a life of privilege but also of public scrutiny, followed everywhere by photographers, every detail of her private life tabloid fodder. But her future is assured, as long as she can maintain her flawless public image — no easy feat when your betrothed is a notorious playboy.

Nathan Hayes is the heir of Paxco — controller of the former state of New York, and creator of human replication technology, science that every state and every country in the world would kill to have. Though Nadia and Nate aren’t in love, they’ve grown up close, and they (and the world) are happy enough with their match.

Until Nate turns up dead, and as far as everyone knows, Nadia was the last person to see him alive.

When the new Nate wakes up in the replication tanks, he knows he must have died, but with a memory that only reaches to his last memory backup, he doesn’t know what killed him. Together, Nadia and Nate must discover what really happened without revealing the secrets that those who run their world would kill to protect.

  1. I would like to see Max Irons and Ben Barnes to be replicated. ;D
    I have a huge crush on them. Just imagine any of them living in your neighbours. *day dreaming* *sighs*

  2. No, I don't want to be replicated. To have someone exactly like me would be creepy and I don't think they could get it all right exactly. To know that is a possibility is really sad as I like to think that what I am experiencing (whether it is good or not) is mine alone.

  3. Who I like to see replicated? Perhaps a pet that someone really loved but not a human, no....that is just not right. Pets are fine as they don't really talk and have emotions that can be messed with.

  4. I don't want to be replicated at all. I think replication would have dark consequences for the human race.

  5. Personally, i would find it rather unnerving and quite disturbing if i was replicated! I am not sure that i would like it to be honest...going against nature.
