Congratulations to Stefanie Gaither whose FALLS THE SHADOW is available today in paperback!
FALLS THE SHADOW released in hard cover last fall to amazing reviews:
“FALLS THE SHADOW takes weird science and makes it a whole lot weirder. Debut author Stefanie Gaither explores what happens when bleeding-edge science collides with the human experience. Highly recommended.” –Jonathan Maberry, New York Times best-selling author of ROT & RUIN and V-WARS
“Cloning as a way to replace lost children seems like a very scary, but perhaps not improbable, possibility for the future. Control of the clones may be the real difficulty as the companies providing this service could manipulate them. A different twist on a post-apocalyptic tale, Falls the Shadow is a very engaging read and hard to put down until the last page.”—Clair L. Brustkern, VOYA starred review
FALLS THE SHADOW
Cate’s sister may be a clone, but that doesn’t make her a killer. Does it? Murder, morality, and a slow-burning romance fill the pages of this futuristic thriller.
When Cate Benson was a kid, her sister, Violet, died. Two hours after the funeral, Cate’s family picked up Violet’s replacement like nothing had happened. Because Cate’s parents are among those who decided to give their children a sort of immortality by cloning them at birth—which means this new Violet has the same face. The same perfect smile. She even has all of the same memories as the girl she replaced.
She also might have murdered the most popular girl in school.
At least, that’s what the paparazzi and the anti-cloning protestors want everyone to think: that clones are violent, unpredictable monsters. Cate is used to hearing all that. She’s used to defending her sister, too. But Violet has vanished, and when Cate sets out to find her, she ends up in the line of fire instead. Because Cate is getting dangerously close to secrets that will rock the foundation of everything she thought was true.
