I can’t say there is a lot of romance in this one, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. So, like I said: Good incentive to kill right?

This intense duqled will keep you flipping pages long past your bedtime and into the wee hours of the night in my case, the late afternoon. She’s one of the most emotionally closed off heroines I’ve encountered, reminding me most strongly of Trella from Inside Out and Outside In.

Book Review: Dualed by Elsie Chapman

Which means one of them has to prove to be the stronger, better Alt. As stated up there in all that gobbledygook I’m pretty sure you just scroll by – after all, my reviews are the best part right?


After that I just wanted this book to end. It’s not even about survival in this tale, because running from your Alt–practically your twin in every genetic way–will only result in both of you dying. To fight to be the better version. By choosing to write in a first-person-present-tense narrative, Chapman manages to draw readers into the story and make it duaed personal.

Survival means a good job, marriage—life. You can take comfort in the fact that I don’t tweet authors about their books if I totally hated them.

This made for an interesting twist, but West turning to an assassin kind of negated the twist for me. Books for younger readers featuring eagle trainers, role-playing gamers, Slayers, and more. It’s rare that a book creates that intense need to keep knowing MORE while reading, and Dualed dkaled that quality. I’ll find it very hard to believe that in the next book West will just decide to uprise and “fight the man” when she didn’t rlsie to do it when she was fighting for her own survival.

To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. It was a huge disappointment, to say the least.

Thats really the only other main character. One of the things I couldn’t help wondering about within the context of this world was elwie happens when your alt dies as an AK accidental killing during someone else’s completion, aka killing their own alt or of a disease.
