She and Trigger 17, the soldier who risked his life for hers, go on the run, escaping into the wild out Dahlia 16's life is a lie.

    Picking right up where Brave New Girl ended, Dahlia 16 and Trigger 17 have escaped from the Lakeview clone farm that provides servants for the wealthy members of their society. Both end up in the home of Waverly Whitmore where Lorna, Waverly's mother, provides them shelter, but only be...

    This is a continuation of the story begun in BRAVE NEW GIRL, and in my opinion, should have all been one book. Of course, the author probably will earn more money by having people buy two books! I have read several young adult series, and I have always felt that the first in the serie...

    This was an excellent sequel and concluding volume in this series. Dahlia 16 and Trigger 17 escaped Lakeview in the previous book and discover that the world they had been taught about doesn't really exist. Dahlia and Trigger and all the other clones are manufactured and then sold arou...

    I?m a little bit surprised that I liked how this one resolved itself, mostly because I hated how Dahlia and Trigger were treated at the start. Once Dahlia and Trigger learned more of the outside world they did a great job of getting what they wanted. Waverly surprised me as well. She...

    My love continues for this series. The ensemble cast was fun to follow with each a hero in their own way. Social media is a heavy player in this story wielding its powers for the positive. Got me thinking of clones and the impact they would make. ...

    This sequel was so different from the first book and so awesome. I love Rachel Vincent's YA book. She's really great at creating a character voice with first person narration. In this sequel, we get Waverly POV. Waverly is a famous reality show star and find out she's a clone after mee...

    I love it when a story ends right. The whole concept of clones and robots who are "alive" is a big thing, with both Humans and Westworld on TV. I really enjoyed the book. The conclusion of the story was bittersweet and really moving. ...

    Another great one by Rachel Vincent! Totally not surprising. I'm typically not a huge fan of duologies, but Rachel has an incredible talent for pacing her stories correctly, so it was fine with me for this series. I enjoyed this book much more than the first book, Brave New Girl (not...

    I'm torn. I loved the first book, the premise was promising and Dahlia's character had potential but the second book wasn't what I expected. I guess I expected war and conflict like the usual dystopian novels but instead I got reality shows and drama. Hmmmm. Although I loved seeing Wav...

    I plowed through this book in two sittings. Maybe because there was never an actual fear that all would not end well. Perhaps it was the glorious absence of a love triangle. Or the speed-reading was due to a limp plot and falling action. Regardless, I can tell you this: Strange New Wor...

    OK-good news here is that this book is BETTER than the first one in the duology. The first one was OK, but this one has better characters, a stronger plot line, and a much more accessible and understandable setting than the first. I think that many readers will enjoy this conclusion to...

    Even better than the first novel! This novel takes the concepts of the first one, and opens up Dahlia 16's world. Dahlia 16 is basically an alien in a strange land, and reading about her impressions of a society very much like ours (minus the clones) was my favorite part. I also grew t...

    Dahlia 16 manages to escape the clone farm and ends up face to face with her identical, Waverly. Waverly is from a rich family and she is hugely popular. Dahlia 16 accidentally gets Waverly's wedding tattoo and has to pretend to be Waverly for the benefit of the media. As Waverly, ...

    3.25 stars I flew through this whole novel and I don?t know why. I enjoyed reading this. Perhaps the characters were easy to read and easy to like and follow. It was a nice sequel to a nice world building novel. I think this being a duology factors in on that because we rarely see...

    In Strange New World I felt again that lack of more dramatism, even though the scenes were fuller in action. The new characters kind of placed Dahlia and Trigger on second place, taking part of the attention that I would?ve liked to remain more on the love birds. And if in the end al...

    So once I finished with book 1 I immediately started in this one. We find out that Dahlia's identical that she meets on the outside after she escapes her "home" is actually her clone. Dahlia is in fact the prototype for her identical that was created. She was meant to be born to two pa...

    This was a good series about clones! It was also a very fast-paced book which I liked. It may not seem like it because it took me awhile to read, but I actually haven't read for a couple of weeks and now just read over half the book in one day! Anyways. Dahlia meets Waverly and they ha...

    This was a fabulous conclusion to this duology! While it took me a couple chapters to get used to Waverly's perspective along with Dahlia's, I really enjoyed seeing the situation from both points of view. I had a lot of empathy for both characters, and I enjoyed seeing their emotional ...

    This was actually an extremely fun read, and one that wasn't hard to follow despite being a sequel (I know, I know; I have a bad habit of accidentally picking up sequels to review). The characters are layered and have distinct personalities, the plot is intriguing and suspenseful, and ...

    I love this series, its both interesting and realistic. What really stood out to me in the second book was the development of Waverly's character. You can't expect someone to change their beliefs overnight, to let go of petty things, the status quo they have always known. Rachel Vincen...

    I loved Strange New World by Rachel Vincent. I especially love sci-fi novels when they are based on something that is possible. And let's face it before too long we could see our first human clone. I mean we have sheep with spider silk in their milk for goodness sake. And we have clone...

    Strange New World was much more enjoyable than the first book, Brave New Girl. The problem with Brave New Girl were the main leads, Dahlia and Trigger, who weren't interesting enough to carry an entire book. However, Strange New World takes place when Dahlia and Trigger leave Lakeview ...
