Gave up halfway. Poor grammar, appalling writing, painfully obvious plot twists, no grasp of physics. Life's too short to read this kind of rubbish.
Boulder Boulderson
Pretty terrible....I assume that it's aimed at young adults but that's no excuse for the nonsensical plot. Hundred-year-old battleships and civilian transports with hyperdrive but modern battleships don't have them? Apparently also in 500 years, society has fallen backwards somewhat in gender equality; there's only one female in the entire book and she is there only as a sex object. This book fails as science fiction and space opera, and whoever edited it should be ashamed of the basic typograph ...more

I really like these clone books. They have a good story line and usually make for easy reading. I go through the pretty quickly. I like military science fiction and these stories fit that category to a "T". It's also nice that this is a series of middle to long books. As the second in this series, it kept my attention focused on the main character, Wayson Harris, who is a "Liberator" clone that can be very mean when necessary. Strangely, tho, he's not super smart and doesn't always figure thing ...more

I really enjoyed this entire series. This is the first of a seven book series which I really enjoyed reading. If you like some action and some interesting social speculation on what would happen if the government of the future had created an army of clones to do it's fighting for it.

Some interesting mechanics for getting around FTL are introduced and play a key part of the story as it progresses. I'm not sure if the seventh book is the last in the series but it was a great set of books if you're

I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in the series, The Clone Republic. It was fast, action-packed, with intriguing politics at the heart of the plot. I was happy to overlook the unexplained absurdities of the "Broadcast" method of travel and communications.

Rogue Clone was going much the same way until my willing suspension of disbelief was blown out the water when the entire galactic transport network was taken out of commission by the destruction of one key node. As an incidental sub-plot maybe

Really liked this book. The character Wayson Harris is very well developed in this sequel. I enjoyed his journey as bounty hunter, marine, mercenary, etc. I especially liked the debate over clones having a soul or not, and the various character opinions and reasonings. Great book with a killer ending!

Steven Kent’s clone novels are always fun to read. The slick science fiction settings, fast-paced narrative, engaging characters and plenty of awesome action scenes make Rogue Clone as good, perhaps even better, than its predecessors. I’m definitely going to look forward to the next book.
Daniel Newcomb
Really awesome read. Stephen L. Kent masterfully guides the reader through the life of a clone marine.
Vincent Hobbes
Great book! I enjoyed the first one, and Rogue Clone is even better. Looking forward to reading the next.

I'm enjoying the series more as I read more books .

Good read! Not awesome, but entertaining.
Jamie McFarlane
Very much enjoying the series.

I grabbed this book because I realized I was about to leave the library with a stack of books written entirely by female authors, and I wanted a little manliness in the mix. This book was well chosen, in that case, because my god, this is a dudely book. No named female characters appear or speak until forty-five chapters in, and the book is only fifty-three chapters long. The military of the future is all male, although this isn't even commented on, it's simply that no woman ever makes an appear ...more

Wayson Harris is one of the few remaining clones of his kind. He is a liberator clone, bred for fast reflexes and a clear head in a combat situation he is conditioned toward violence and taking out the enemy as fast as possible. His class of clone also does not have the built in death reflex that kills all other clones when they find out what they are, he also is not as conditioned to be blindly loyal to the UA and patriotic as other clones. This has earned Harris a fair share of enemies both in ...more

This is the second of a series and another book I had picked up at the Borders going-out-of-business sale.

I finished this pretty quickly. It was easy to read and paced in away that I wanted to keep reading at the end of each chapter.

My only issue with the story is that the main character, while supposed to be a super soldier, is often only a witness to the critical events of the plot. Even when he is involved, his actions have no real effect on the outcome. This is a trend that was present in t

The book was ok, but I wish that it were slightly faster paste instead of explaining the history of this or that, or the other.
Alec Young
seemed shorter than the other. and I am sad to say I missed one.
Patrick Challis
After reading the superb first book in this series, I had some massive hopes for this one. Especially after some of the shocking events in the first book.

I'll admit that this one didn't quite live up to that promise but it is still a brilliantly paced and exciting story by Kent here.

I had to round up the score on here to 4 whereas if you follow the link to the full review it has a score of 3.5 but you can't do half scores here.

The second book in the series, rogue clone continues the epicness. I liked how the action slowed down a LITTLE at least. The story lined gained more depth though, and I did really appreciate that. Great series.
Marita
This one was in the draft stages as well when I read it.
Gavin
Continues with awesomeness of previous book in series.
