It was not common to awaken in a cloning vat streaked with drying blood.
At least Maria Arena had never experienced it. She had no memory of how she died. That was also new; before, when she had awakened as a new clone, her first memory was of how she died. Maria's vat was in the front of six vats, each one holding the clone of a crew member of the starship Dormire, each clone waiting for its previous incarnation to die so it could awaken. And Maria wasn't the only one to die recently....

excellent story and characters
This book is a very clever take on what it would mean for society if people could essentially live forever through cloning. it's not the first sci-fi to explore this concept but definitely holds it own. I liked the world and the mystery.

I can't listen to this.
This is a review of the audiobook only.
I haven't finished the book. In fact, I'm only one hour in, but I'm going to have to return it. From what I've heard so far, the author is talented. She's set up a really interesting premise and I'm intrigued to learn more. But the narration is terrible. I really wish a professional narrator or voice actor had been hired to do this because Ms. Lafferty isn't doing her own story any justice. Everyone has been given the same voice and inflection so I can't tell who is speaking unless the book explicitly states it.
So I'm returning the Audible version of this book and will pick it up in print.
