Number 6 in Kent's clone series, our man Harris is portrayed (slightly awkwardly) both as less sure of himself and yet more in control this time (less surge from the boosted adrenaline glands), although the control is something Harris seems to regret.

We still pelt along at a fair pace, moving between several planets (and back again), but for me it doesn't quite have the same appeal as the first five novels did. The action sequences seemed a little "distant" - not so visceral as the previous book

The penultimate book in the series according to the author picks up with Wayson Harris and the rest of the clones in his command on Terreanau recovering from the attack of the U.A. all natural Navy. But Harris knows that most of his army has gotten away and is willing to risk his life to go and find them. That's alright with the "Right" Reverand Doctorow who wants nothing more than to see Harris and his clone marines off of Terreanau so he can create his utopia with him as General/Commander in C ...more

So far I've enjoyed this series of books; so far, that is. I had trouble getting through this one because the author chose to turn his main character into a blithering idiot!

Wayson Harris is a clone that has risen to the rank of a one-star general. He also has managed to find the only clone female that anyone knows about and she happens to be a duplicate of Ava Gardner whom most readers probably have no clue what she looks like. Anyway, Gen. Harris becomes stupidly infatuated with Ms. Gardner t
Vast improvement on the side of storytelling, but the narration itself still floats lazily in a windstill ocean without real direction or sense of things to come. Either Kent will close this series with an absolut thrilling volume or it will rather dripple away without any impact of any kind.
There's simply no point to play a seven book series with the rules of any "sitcom" with indefinite numbers of episodes out there: put everything after each episode back where you took it from. Unfortunately

The Clone Empire by Steven L. Kent is the latest book in the Clone series. Once again we find Wayson Harris in the middle of more action than he wants. Harris is asked to leave the planet he saved from the Unified Authority. When he joins the rest of the Clone Fleet he finds that UA needs their help to defeat an old enemy that has reappeared, an enemy that threatens to destroy every planet humans have colonized.

There is a lot of action and intrigue in Clone Empire but no resolution to the probl

The plot keeps getting better. It is starting to go a bit faster now that we know the history. i can't wait to see how the series ends.

Over all the book is well written and a fast read for those who love sci-fi.

I picked this book up from a library book sale and did not realize it was the 6th in a series. On that note I really enjoyed this book, and do plan on going back and reading the series from the first book on. Even though it is further in the series I did not really find it too difficult to get into the story, as the pace of the book was pretty good and the action was maintained throughout the story. I look forward to reading the first book in the series and eventually reading the next book in th ...more

I'm a fan of these books, but I don't like how this book sets you up for something and then does a twist in the middle. Normally I don't mind twists, except that this one abandons everything that's gone before in this book and goes in a new unlikable direction.

These novels are like candy. I can't stop reading them. I now have to wait for Kent to write more.

I found the plot to be a bit scattered. Still an okay read, but not great.
