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.

Okay, let’s just admire this cover first….



Okay, dystopian book? You’ve got my vote! I LOVE dystopian and I’m definitely getting my hands on a copy of this book at some point. The synopsis of this book sounds sooo interesting and I want a copy now. Skin Island!? That just sounds creepy!

  1. WOW this looks really great! I love dystopia too but I’ll admit this idea has been used a lot of times in other novels so fingers crossed this author brings something new and original to it, and oh the pretty cover *sigh*
