(view spoiler)[I just finished the book and wonder about the gaping plothole: The Resistance found Emma in a pile of dead bodies, brain dead, and then carted her to her tube where she remained for the next 8 months in order to have the baby. When did Travista get her DNA? It sounds like the Resistance found her before anyone else could. If not, did Travista find her, clone her and throw her out without checking for a heartbeat?

sh(e)reader I'm sure I can't answer any better than the author ;) but Declan does say that he wanted to be sure and leave her body (the original) where it would be found, as he feared they wouldn't stop searching for her otherwise.
This answer contains spoilers… (view spoiler)[Travista and Declan found her first, quickly made the transfer, then had her body returned and left for dead. He made the assumption she couldn't be saved. The resistance showing up after didn't happen very fast... Time for the battle to clear out, for the bad guys to pile up bodies, etc... Half a day, at least. It's confusing, I know! (hide spoiler)]
