Posted January 8, 2014 by Emily in Meme / 6 Comments

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

TITLE: Vitro

AUTHOR: Jessica Khoury
PUBLICATION DATE: January 14, 2014

SYNOPSIS: On Skin Island, even the laws of creation can be broken.

On a remote island in the Pacific, Corpus scientists have taken test tube embryos and given them life. These beings—the Vitros—have knowledge and abilities most humans can only dream of. But they also have one enormous flaw.

Sophie Crue is determined to get to Skin Island and find her mother, a scientist who left Sophie behind years ago. With the help of Jim Julien, a young charter pilot, she arrives–and discovers a terrifying secret she never imagined: she has a Vitro twin, Lux, who is the culmination of Corpus’s dangerous research.

Now Sophie is torn between reuniting with the mother who betrayed her and protecting the genetically enhanced twin she never knew existed. But untangling the twisted strands of these relationships will have to wait, for Sophie and Jim are about to find out what happens when science stretches too far beyond its reach.

What are you waiting on?

  1. I haven’t read Origin (yet) but this sounds really intriguing. I understand that it’s a companion to Khoury’s debut, though not a sequel which is refreshing. Perhaps I can pick this one up without absolutely having to read Origin first (though I probably would anyway). Great pick! I hadn’t read the synopsis for this yet and I’m definitely interested!
