Ella, Betsy and I look like sisters: triplets, you might think.
But that's not what we are at all.
We are clones in hiding. We split our lives and exist as one person in the outside world. And we've always been happy.
But now I've fallen head-over-heels in love . . . and that changes everything.
Because, to let love in, I need to be allowed to be Me.
The Originals is a book about clones. Yes, clones! It has a unique and interesting storyline, which is a common find in all of Patrick's books, but also awesome and realistic characters that you will adore.
I really, really enjoyed the idea for this book, and also each of the girls: Lizzie, Ella and Betsy. Each girl has their own personality, but I quite liked the book just being told from Lizzie's POV alone. She is a determined girl with a deep longing to live a normal life. Though I did not like her mother at all. Not her biological mother, but the woman who stole them from the lab and brought them up as her own. Her protectiveness over the girls is understandable, but I didn't like the fact that she controlled everything they did.
Even though I adored The Originals, Patrick's debut novel Forgotten still remains my favourite out of her books. The characters and the romance and storyline was just perfect for me, except from the cliffhanger ending. I liked Revived and I also liked how some of the characters appear in this book as well!
If you like books which are fairly contemporary with a supernatural twist then pick up any of one Cat Patrick's books because they are gems!
