Clans are unity. No variation. No deviation.
On Clades, to be a Clan is to be an exact copy. A perfect society cloning themselves to survive, even as the zombielike Frags threaten to overrun them on an unforgiving planet.
Clan 1672 (privately known as Twain) was never supposed to survive the Incubation Tank. But he did. Illegally. He is different from the other Clans.
He has a secret that could destroy him.

"Highly enjoyable, thought-provoking sci-fi by an author with considerable talent and promise." (Kirkus Reviews)

"This book was given to me for free at my request, and I provided this voluntary review."
Overall I was very satisfied after listening to “Clan”, “Clan” had an interesting story and excellent performance. This book embodies the best in Science Fiction an idea explored with an interesting plot with great characters. I recommend this book to mature YA readers or adult readers, the book explores dark themes. (4.5/5)
The fantastic narration was performed by Jeff Hays. Each character had a differentiated voice, and I could instantly tell when one of the characters was speaking. This audiobook includes sound effects which were expertly interwoven into the story, much better than Delvers LLC (same narrator) where I found them to be inconsistent. I would be remiss if I did not mention that near the beginning of the narration there was an inconsistent echo, other than that I did not notice any audio anomalies. The narration was top notch, and I think the story benefited from it. (4.9/5) [Listening Speed 1.7x]
The author weaves a world which people strive to be the same “unified” but even then differences appear, the story in a sense is a celebration of the smallest differences. The story follows Clan 1672 who strives to be the same as the rest of the Clan, but the large differences make that difficult, those difficulties form the basis of the story. The story goes to some dark places on exploring what people do with outcasts from a group, and how small differences can cause large divides when everyone else is identical. In the end, this story is driven by an idea, but what makes it great is exploring that idea with a cast of great characters. (4.5/5)
"One of the best I've ever listened to."
This was a really interesting story. As a Jeff fan, I can't help myself, so picked this up as soon as he posted on facebook.
What I really loved about this story was just that, the story. It was so intricate, so well written and of course performed that I was totally hooked in from the first five minutes. This is, in fact going to be one of my all time favourites probably for a long time. If I could give this one 10 stars I would.
The characters in here, were so deep and wonderfully developed, their backstory and lives just so heartbreaking and wonderful. I felt and went through their journey with them and was on the edge of my seat with it many, many times.
I think my only criticism was the ending and I won't spoil it for anyone, honestly I think it could have ended much sooner. But, that's my only real quibble. I don't know if this is going to be something there can be another story with but I'll be watching for more, especially from the writer, it was just brilliant. Thank you very much for this. Some of the best hours I've spent listening.
