Jumping back into Emma’s story, readers go from Archetype and onto the second and final instalment, Prototype. After a year of running trying to find her parents, she finds sanctuary and safety with the Resistance. She hopes to build a life of her own there, but struggles confronting the man she loves, Noah Tucker, who has moved on and is raising their daughter with another woman. She is constantly reminded of her past, the one that wasn’t entirely her own and the one she lived, and what she is. Meanwhile, Declan Burke wishes to reclaim her, getting the public on his side with both sympathy and reward money to hunt down his wife and bring her back to him. It’s up to Emma to fight for her life and freedom, taking a stand for what she wants.

I had high expectations for this book after such a fantastic, shocking ending in the first novel (If you haven’t read my Archetype review, go check that out first). I can see both books appealing to an audience not quite familiar with the science fiction genre and welcoming them into it for the very first time, but for science fiction fanatics like me, Prototype falls short.

Emma 2.0, clone to the now dead Emma Wade, wants to stay hidden as she tries to find her original hosts' parentage in the mountains of Mexico, after abandoning the love of her life and newborn daughter a year ago. With a price on her head from Declan Burke, the CFO of a company that kidnaps and clones young, healthy women of child-bearing age, Emma joins the resistance army to take Burke and his company down while desperately searching for a cure for a defect in the cloning process. The thrilling conclusion to M.D. Waters' science-fiction novel, Archetype (released earlier this year), Prototype is Emma 2.0 on a journey to stay alive and figure out her place in a dangerous world.
