The stunning conclusion to the Clone Codes trilogy

There is a wicked system of operation inside the Topas Corporation, where clones are produced. Only authorized Topas officials are allowed inside. Only they, along with the clones themselves, know what happens within the walls of the world’s largest and most powerful cloning company. This final book of The Clone Codes plunges readers into this strange reality. At the same time, The World Federation of Nations has issued an urgent decree to the masses--find Houston Ye, a cyborg, and Leanna Deberry, a clone, both fugitives! There is a $1 million bounty on each of their heads if captured alive. Once again, the McKissacks blend a futuristic world with events from world history to create a gripping sci-fi adventure.

From The Clone Codes: The Visitors

I try to stay calm, but I'm gagging.

How long have I been here?

I'm so tired. Did I fall asleep again?

My eyes hurt. The bright lights stab at me. It's worse than someone poking my eyes with a stick.

I can't move my arms and legs in all this thickness.

I can't move my hands either. They've been tied with ropes.

I'm stuck in some kind of glass jar, with wires connected to my body. I start to cry, and soon sleep takes over.

When I wake, I'm choking, gagging even harder.

A tube pushes icy liquid into my throat.

My body knows to swallow. My stomach fills quickly.

There are no more wires, just the tubes in my mouth and nose.

When I glance at my hands, I see they are bright orange. My whole body is orange.

There are voices in my head now, talking loudly.

This clone is number 9767.

This clone wants to work.

This clone is happy.

This clone is number 9767.

This clone wants to work.

This clone is happy.

This clone is number 9767.

This clone wants to work.

This clone is happy.

"Stop!" I scream.
