This is the second of a series in the Virtual War Chronologs. There are some interesting facts about cloning and arificial insemination, which could be useful in a science class. The treatment of the girl is somewhat streotypical, and the plot line is over simplified, but this might have appeal to boys.

My son says: This book has excitement, love, and hidden secrets. If you like books about people who were once your friend and turned into enemies, crazy myths, and drama, brothers who turn against each other, future, and crazy cities, then this would be a great book for you to read. Boys and girls between the ages of 9 to 14 would enjoy this book. ( )

The setting of my book is at “The Domed City” on top of Wyoming, and at Nuku Hiva Island. All the action takes place at Nuku Hiva Island and at “The Domed City”. The time of the year in this book is in the future about 2080.
The main characters of my book are: Corgan, Sharla, Brig, Seabrig, Brigand, Grimber, Delphine and Mendor. The characters are believable in my opinion, maybe if we could live in the future I would believe in them more. The character I liked the most was Corgan, because he is a very responsible teenager, intelligent, and thinks like me. I can relate to Corgan a little by the way he thinks about all the problems that happen in the story, who I would also solved them. I haven’t done none of the things they did at the story, but I have felt the same way as the characters.
The conflict or problem in the story was that Brig died soon after the War and yet is not truly gone. Sharla had saved some or Brig’s DNA and has created clone-twins with it. Without the Supreme Council knowing about the clone-twins, because if they did know the Supreme Council would kill one of the clone-twins, and they (Corgan, and Sharla) didn’t want that to happen, but one of the Laboratory member discovers about the clone-twin secret and tries to tell upon them. The resolution of the story is when, Corgan flies to Florida, so Brigand wouldn’t kill him. The problem is solved when Grimber (Laboratory member) dies of a heart attack, and doesn’t tell the Supreme Council. Sharla created clone-twins with Brig’s DNA which was Sharla’s and Corgan’s friend. Corgan’s world was disrupted when Sharla brings one of the clone-twins, Seabrig, to him to raise on the island, while she keeps the other, Brigand, with her in the Domed City. The conditions force Sharla to bring Brigand to the island, Corgan and Sharla find out that even though the boys may look identical their personalities are different. As a result of the cloning process, both boys are growing at an unbelievable rate. Seabrig is badly injured and must be airlifted from the island to have medical treatment in the Domed City. Leaving Corgan alone with an dangerous and unstable Brigand, who is now his size, wanting to get rid of Corgan for all. I didn’t like the ending, because I thought it was going to end differently.

PERSONAL OPINION

Everything it is very interesting and has a lot of suspense.What I would change about this book would be the ending. What I learned from this book was that not everybody is a good person.I think my sister should read it, because she likes this kinds of books like me with a lot of suspense.

RATING: It was pretty good, and I wish the book hadn’t ended so soon. ( )

Clones are supposed to be identical...
aren't they?

Corgan, hero of the Virtual War, has been living a blissful, if placid, life on the Isles of Hiva, his reward for winning the War with Sharla and Brig. But what he doesn't know is that Brig died soon after the War, and yet is not truly gone. Sharla had saved some of Brig's DNA and has created clone-twins with it. Corgan's world is disrupted when Sharla brings one of the clone-twins, Seabrig, to him to raise on the island, while she keeps the other, Brigand, with her in the Domed City. However, when circumstances force Sharla to bring Brigand to the island, they find that while the boys may look identical, their temperaments are not. Brigand is haughty, willful, power hungry, and despises Corgan because of his relationship with Sharla. And, as a result of the cloning process, both boys are growing at an astonishing rate. In what may or may not have been an accident with his clone-twin, Seabrig is badly injured and must be airlifted from the island to receive medical treatment in the Domed City. This leaves Corgan alone with an increasingly dangerous and unstable Brigand, who is now his size, and looking to get rid of Corgan once and for all.

A gripping sequel to Virtual War that could be ripped straight from the headlines -- in eighty years....
