The Sentient by Nadia Afifi – Book Review

PUBLISHERS BLURB 

Amira Valdez is a brilliant neuroscientist trying to put her past on a religious compound behind her. But when she’s assigned to a controversial cloning project, her dreams of working in space are placed in jeopardy. Using her talents as a reader of memories, Amira uncovers a conspiracy to stop the creation of the first human clone – at all costs. As she unravels the mystery, Amira navigates a dangerous world populated by anti-cloning militants, scientists with hidden agendas, and a mysterious New Age movement. In the process, Amira uncovers an even darker secret, one that forces her to confront her own past.

MY REVIEW 

Amira is a neuroscientist, she is investigating the deaths of two human cloning test subjects and a third needs her protection…..but from what or who?

This is a fast paced sci-fi thriller with a complex and clever plot. The world building is quite astounding. There is plenty of action and thought provoking moments regarding the ethics of human cloning, there’s religious cults and their power over people too. A totally gripping and original read.

Thank you to Random Things Tours for the opportunity to be part of this blog tour, for the promotional material and an eARC of The Sentient. This is my honest and unbiased review.
