Until a month ago, eighteen-year-old Ven had never set foot outside the windowless warehouse where she was created. An Imitation of Raven Rogen, Ven spent her days confined in the lab, studying videos of her Authentic, all so she could step into Raven’s life at a moment’s notice.
Now, Ven lives in Raven’s penthouse apartment, kisses Raven’s boyfriend, and obeys every order from Raven’s dad, Titus Rogen—the very man who created her. But Ven has a secret plan. She doesn’t want Raven’s life. She wants her own.
In the action-packed sequel of Imitation, Ven wages a dangerous war against Titus. First she’ll free herself, then she’ll free every last Imitation. . . .
Heather has managed to put the what- if factor into reality in this amazing follow-up to Imitation! I literally sat down and read this book in a single day, and that was a problem because I was working, it’s a good thing my boss was not in that day because I kept picking my Kindle back up to see if Ven, Linc, Daniel, Neil and the others were successful in their quest to try and begin to free the clones! I say now with a great deal of amusement that the reading of this novel would have gotten me into a heap of trouble and had I been in school I am more than sure the teacher would have taken my kindle and I would not have seen it again. Heather has done such an amazing job of engaging the reader, thoroughly developing the characters and building their relationships perfectly, Ven struggles the way any teenager would when their parent does something they feel is grossly unethical, all the while trying to be the perfect child. Her relationship with Titus, the King of all that happens to those who get power and money who should not, their evil and greed come to the surface, is strained at best, though they are able to present the best of appearances.
I could literally go on, but alas I will not.

Everyone is exactly like me. There is no one like me.
Ven wrestles with these contradicting truths every day. A clone of wealthy eighteen-year-old Raven Rogen, Ven knows everything about the girl she was created to serve: the clothes she wears, the boys she loves, the friends she loves to hate. Yet she’s never met the Authentic Raven face-to-face. Imitations like Ven only get to leave the lab when they’re needed—to replace a dead Authentic, donate an organ, or complete a specific mission. And Raven has never needed Ven . . . until now.
When there is an attack on Raven’s life, Ven is thrust into the real world, posing as Raven to draw out the people who tried to harm her. But as Ven dives deeper into Raven’s world, she begins to question everything she was ever told. She exists for Raven, but is she prepared to sacrifice herself for a girl she’s never met?
Fans of Cinder, The Selection and Sara Shepard’s Lying Game series will love Imitation, a thrilling, action-packed novel sure to keep readers guessing until the very last page.
