Until a month ago, eighteen-year-old Ven had never set foot outside the windowless warehouse where she was created. An Imitation of Raven Rogen, Ven spent her days confined in the lab, studying videos of her Authentic, all so she could step into Raven’s life at a moment’s notice.
Now, Ven lives in Raven’s penthouse apartment, kisses Raven’s boyfriend, and obeys every order from Raven’s dad, Titus Rogen—the very man who created her. But Ven has a secret plan. She doesn’t want Raven’s life. She wants her own.
Haven’t actually finished Imitation and haven’t really had time to read, but I’m definitely excited to read this too. I just hope it will live up with the good reviews I’ve read from friends and fellow bloggers. I’ve requested this ARC from NetGalley and I’m so glad I was approved. Anyway, here’s a five star, three star and one star review respectively. Got them from book lovers on Goodreads.
This installment of the Clone Chronicles is filled with action and breath-holding moments that make you wanna scream! But if you’ve read Imitation then you should already expect your anxiety levels to rise anytime Titus Rogen is involved! Plan to spend a few consecutive hours on this one – you won’t be able to put it down!!

I felt like this book, its plot, and all its characters were completely different from the first book, Imitation. I still liked it well enough, but it wasn’t at all what I was expecting.
— Tammy from Goodreads
Let me just start off by saying that I LOVED the first book, Imitation. So much so that I recklessly bought the second one without reading any reviews or thinking about it beyond “oh hey look I think I need this.” The one thing I really have to say about this book? This was a bad decision and I wasted my $0.99. There’s a reason some books are less than a dollar on Amazon people.
— Rebekah from Goodreads
Pretty intense reviews don’t you think? I can say that there were a lot of good reviews from the people who were provided by an ARC so I’m still excited despite of the not so good ones. I’m so hoping I could finish this before the 30th though or it won’t be an ARC anymore. Lol! I really need my reading time! Happy reading to me. Book review to follow.. 😀
Book Beginnings on Fridays is hosted by Rose City Reader, where we share the first sentence (or so) of the books we are reading, along with initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.
Here’s the book’s beginning:
“I have always been two people at once. Today is no different.
I am Raven Rogen and, especially when they’re not watching.
I’m also Ven. Sometimes, my identities separate into
two sets of habits, two sets of desires, two sets of miseries.”
Talking about being schizophrenic huh? That must have been so confusing. I wouldn’t want to be two people at the same time or I could go looney. Poor Raven. I wonder what happened for her to do that. For her to suffer something so crazy. Intriguing I may say.
What do you think of the book’s beginning? You could share book beginnings on your current read too. Comment the link of your own Book Beginnings on Fridays so I can check it out and have an idea of amazing books that I would want to read. Come on! Join us! 😀

I haven’t had a chance to read Imitation yet, either, but I SO WANT TO! I didn’t even realise the sequel was out. Gosh. Gotta get cracking. xD
Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!
I’m so behind. I’ve only read a couple of pages from Imitation and I really need to finish it so I can read and finish Deviation too. Lol! You can request for it on NetGalley 😀
Wow – cool post! I got this from netgalley too but I havent had the chance to read it yet!
We need to read it since it will be published on the 30th. Lol! 😀
Oh well then I guess I’ll be posting a review after the book is published.. 😛 I dont think it should matter too much – I know some people only get interested in a book if its already published and available for buying and reading!
I’ll still try to finish it though 🙂
Good luck 🙂 Im still trying to get through the tbr of 28 books I want to finish… Ive only read 4-5 books of it though 😛
Even though this probably isn’t a series I would be too interested in reading, I really like the way this series of cover art design is shaping up.
I know just how Raven feels about being two different people, pulled in totally opposite directions. I have to keep remembering which hat I am supposed to be wearing at any given time, although I am still in control of the situation. To have the transition take place randomly and without Raven seemingly having any control of the situation, must be a nightmare!
I too, have had precious time to read just lately, so I hope that situation gets better for both of us 🙂
Oh! A nightmare indeed.
I’m so behind in reading. Really hoping I could get some reading time and finish books.
Have a great week ♥
Definitely an attention-grabbing excerpt, and so is the blurb. Enjoy! And thanks for sharing.
Here’s mine: “CATCH ME”
Thanks babe. Have a great week ♥
Never setting foot outside for 18 years? Wow!! Or did I misread.
ENJOY your book and your weekend.
My Book Beginnings
I was surprised too. Lol! Have a great week ♥
Sounds like I need to read Imitation first and then decide if I want to read Deviation. I like the premises of both books, and I hope you enjoy Deviation.
My Friday post features CHORUS LINES, CAVIAR AND CORPSES.
The series is quite interesting indeed. Thanks for dropping by ♥
I’m reading the Ginnie West Adventure series. I’m almost finished with book 2 and have to read and review books 3 and 4 before the 31st! Eeek!
Oh! So I’m not alone with this huh? Good luck to the both us babe. Hope we’ll be able to finish the books. ♥
Ooooo like that beginning! Thanks for sharing and stopping by my blog! 🙂
Thanks babe! Happy New Year ♥
