In a secret lab, a team of doctors and scientists funded by a mysterious billionaire create the first human replica entirely from technology. The robot is prepared to host the digitized consciousness of Tom Nolan, a family man suffering from a terminal illness. But when Tom’s replica escapes before the transfer can take place, he is faced with the horrors of an alter ego bent on death and destruction. When the experiment draws the attraction of spies, Tom is caught up in an international crisis with a showdown that could change the course of the world.

This book is a Flame Tree Press ARC I wasn't sure would interest me. But, as soon as I started, I was instantly hooked. I couldn't put it down!

Tom Nolan is ill. His body has given up on him, and will continue to get worse. So when one of his old friends asks if he'd like to take part in a super secret experiment that will help his brain survive and receive a top-notch new body, of course he signs up.

His new body is awesome, a perfect replica. He can't wait to slip into his new skin, and finally be able to share his secret with his family. But during the final test, his replica escapes and leaves a trail of violence in his wake.

As dire as this is, an unexpected hidden threat comes out of nowhere...


I have to be honest, I didn't think I would like this book. And ended up absolutely loving it!

OMG. I didn't want to put this down. It's gripping, exciting and takes so many twists and turns I was on the edge of my seat. Seriously, my heart was pounding so fast because just when I thought the danger was over, a new--and worse--threat arises.

Let's talk about Tom Nolan. He's such a likeable and strong character. A guy who doesn't let a disease destroy everything without a fight. I was totally on his side, was cheering him on all the way through because after all the crap he goes through, all I wanted was for him to be okay.

But he's not the only interesting character. Even the villains were intriguing. And the multiple POVs were handled perfectly, kept the urgency and pace moving.

There are some scenes that totally blew me away, but I can't mention a single thing about them because they would be spoilerish. And trust me, the best way to go into this book is by knowing minimal info about the plot.

The Gemini Experiment is a fast-paced and very exciting Sci-Fi thriller with an awesome twist of pseudo-technology thrown into the very exciting mix. The stakes start out pretty high, but with every new page, the danger kept rising. It's imaginative, techie, explosive and touches on some pretty heavy issues about humanity, robotics and the endless quest for immortality.

Not to mention the ending was brutal, and bonkers. In the best way possible. 😊

I absolutely LOVED this. I can't say it enough. The level of intensity and suspense in this book was totally captivating. It's the kind of unexpected story that surprised me with its brilliance.
