A beautiful world comes at a price...
In a world filled with stunning clones Mina Hart is Blemished. Her genes are worthless and that takes away her rights: her right to an Education, her right to a normal life and her right to have a child.
Mina keeps a dangerous secret which she never thought she could share until she meets Angela on her first day at St Jude's School. But their friendship is soon complicated by Angela’s adoptive brother Daniel. Mina finds herself drawn to his mysterious powers and impulsive nature. Then there is the gorgeous clone Sebastian who Mina is forbidden from even speaking to…
The Blemished is a frightening take on a fractured future where the Genetic Enhancement Ministry have taken control of Britain. It will take you on a ride filled with adventure, romance and rebellion.
My throat went dry and I croaked through my next sentence. “No one can know about that.”
She ignored me and continued. “That’s power that the Ministry don’t have. And if you have this kind of power that means there are others out there with the same powers.”
Everything felt wrong. I’d underestimated this girl. She had a hidden agenda. Maybe she was going to make me sign up to the Resistance or worse. Why else would she believe I could make a difference in this world?
“I shouldn’t have told you. You work for someone. You’re going to tell people,” I said, moving away from the table. I backed towards the kitchen door. I had to get out of the house.
“What? No. I didn’t mean that I think you should do anything. I was just thinking aloud. Mina, listen to me. I’m not going to tell anyone. I promise.” Angela’s eyes pleaded with me to stay. “You’re safe here. When you meet Daniel you’ll understand everything.”
“She’ll understand what?”
The door was open and a boy stepped into the kitchen. He looked from me to Angela and back to me. He was a skinny thing with messy blond hair and piercing eyes the colour of the sea.
“You,” he said to me. “I know you.”
