Project Tau was one of my favourite sci-fi so far. And with this sequel it seems even more exciting. I will surely delve into this as well. Thanks for a great review.

I remember sampling this book; it was incredibly exciting and captivating. I agree that you easily become friends with Tau and Kata as they struggle to escape being manipulated by unscrupulous individuals. I also appreciate the author's use of humor to deflate less palatable situations. I haven't read the first one yet, but I sure will if only to fully enjoy Homecoming! Thanks for the scintillating review.

A fascinating story I am yet to read, definitely give a try in good time at least in no time.
Very plain and impressive review, I recommend this good genre.

Cloning and the theme of human rights seem to always go hand-in-hand, especially with the question of what makes a human, but I can’t imagine how much more complicated that must get if Kata was experimented on and made to think he was a clone. That’s a mind trip for him and the reader. That alone makes me want to read the book, but I think I should the first one beforehand. Don’t want to get lost. Thank you for the helpful review.

The descriptions made in the book about the characters and settings are quite vivid but that's the part I struggle with but not too much. Thanks to the review I got to know that I should try the book as I don't read sci-fi books too frequently and it's rare too. The flow of the story holds much important to me and while reading a few pages, It made me happy that the book's flow is consistent and uninterrupted. Although I have to go through both the books I still would like to have it in my library . The vivid topics discussed in the book are also a major catch for me. ☺

I enjoyed reading your review. I read the first book, and really enjoyed it. The first book ended with a cliffhanger, so I am really interested in reading the second book to find out how everything ends.
