Nicole de Boer,
A virus breaks out and leaves the humans residing on Earth doomed. However, in a desperate attempt before the end, all humanity's resources are dedicated to a crash program to produce a deep space ark, capable of seeding humanity on a new world. The ship is crewed by six clones; teenage versions of people who achieved great works during the ark project and equipped with the memories of their donors. Prior to its arrival, however, the crew is awoken prematurely to face a threat to the ship, before their memories are complete. They must come to terms with the workings of the ship, the dangers faced by their ship, the realization that they are clones, and their ultimate destiny to save their race.
I'm actually not too partial towards the book. I found the book to be far too fast-paced.
The story of the book is that teenager Robbie Mikkelsen discovers he is actually Reb, a martian who is one of six children on the ship Deepwater, where he discovers that the ship's purpose is to restore life to Earth. He also battles this evil computer called NUN.
The series has none of this, with only one computer and no references to Earth in the dreamlike "prexing". Basically this could screw up the book, and even though the stories are weaker, I found them to be much better told than the book.
The only real problem I found was the spelling of the characters' names. Although Bren, Gret, Zak and Reb were the same, Yoona and Lis' names were changed.
