The two Earths are identical in almost every way. Two copies of every city, every building, even every person. But the people from the second Earth know something their duplicates do not—two versions of the same thing cannot exist. They—and their whole planet—are slowly disappearing. Lira has been trained mercilessly since childhood to learn everything she can about her duplicate, to be a ruthless sleeper-assassin who kills that other Lirael and steps seamlessly into her life.
An intricate, literary stand-alone from an astonishing new voice, The Unquiet takes us deep inside the psyche of a strong teenage heroine struggling with what she has been raised to be and who she really is. Fans of eerily futuristic and beautifully crafted stories such as Never Let Me Go, Orphan Black, and Fringe will find themselves haunted by this unsettling debut.
I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book in the least.
When I first requested this book, I was excited. I love the thought of alternate worlds and felt The Unquiet held real promise.
This book ultimately ended up as a DNF for me. There wasn’t necessarily anything wrong with the book, it just didn’t interest me enough to keep reading. Maybe someday.
