A death-defying tropical adventure delivers a frightening message about dabbling with creation from the talented author of Origin.

On a remote island in the Pacific, Corpus scientists have taken test tube embryos and given them life. These beings—the Vitros—have knowledge and abilities most humans can only dream of. But they also have one enormous flaw.

Sophie Crue is determined to get to Skin Island and find her mother, a scientist who left Sophie behind years ago. She enlists hunky charter pilot Jim Julien to take her there. But once on the island, Sophie and Jim encounter more than they bargained for, including a charming, brilliant Vitro named Nicholas and an innocent, newly awoken one named Lux.

In a race for their lives, Sophie and Jim are about to discover what happens when science stretches too far beyond its reach.

My Thoughts:
I read Khoury's first book, Origin, last year and loved it.  This book takes place on the same island but with different characters. I have high hopes for it, and can't wait to read it in January!

What are your thoughts? What are you waiting for this week? Let us know in the comments!

  1. Oooo, Vitro! I haven't read Origin, but this one is a companion novel, so I don't necessarily have to... I might give it a try! Is it worth requesting from Penguin? I'm so swamped right now - I think I'll just wait for awesome bloggers like you to read/review Vitro, and then I'll decide :D

    Check out my WoW post!
