Imitation by Heather Hildenbrand Book review & Giveaway

Everyone is exactly like me.

There is no one like me.

The rough fabric of my cotton nightgown chafes so I lie very still.

They say my discomfort comes from being built like one accustomed to niceties.

How is that fair when I myself have never experienced anything but copies of the real thing?

My entire life is an imitation.

I am an Imitation.

I’ve been here five years. Training. Preparing. Waiting.

And now I have a letter.

My assignment has begun.

I am a prisoner.

I am not Raven Rogen.

I am here to die.

My review'
Ya Dystopian - Romance - Fiction
4 1/2 stars
Imitation is such a perfect title for this new series written by Heather Hildenbrand. Her vast creativity never ceases to amaze me and this new Ya Dystopian is all of its own. Certainly unique with a captivating and intriguing storyline to keep the reader engaged at every page turn.
Imitations  are cloned for the purpose of being an exact replicate of an authentic. Authentic being a real human being.  In Imitation we meet Ven she is sent on a mission to find out who is targeting her authentic Raven Rogan but deep in the back of her mind she knows this maybe a mission she will never return from.
As the story unfolds we are given doubt, mystery , romance and twists and turns throughout this story. It certainly had me guessing as to what may happen . This story is certainly unpredictable by any means and I really enjoyed Heather's creativity in this story.
I wont go into the storyline at all. But do expect this to be an ongoing series. I eagerly await what may happen next and in which direction she will take us.
I enjoyed Ven's character - she was a strong , dependable person whom despite the circumstances realizes her job is to be someones IMITATION. A clone made to be expendable.
The romance between Ven and Linc was gradual and sweet, not a rushed love story for sure. This I enjoyed much so.
The tone of the underlying storyline may come off as a little darker then Heather' previous books but it certainly is filled with a possibility that may just happen in the future ( raises eyebrows) 
 For all who enjoyed the movie The Island - they will really enjoy this story.   And if you haven't watched it you must .. You really have to think of the possibility of something happening like - its kinda creepy . lol
Each character relates to the next and we certainly see them blended in well with the mystery behind Twig City and also who is after Raven. 
Overall, an enjoyable short read by Heather and I certainly look forward to finding out more in the upcoming stories.
