Storyline

In the future, Earth's entire population is being wiped out by an unstoppable virus. Mankind's only hope for survival is to launch a spaceship stocked with clones in cryogenic freeze, which will return to a devastated planet and re-populate it. Prior to its arrival, however, its crew of 6 is awoken to face a threat to the ship. 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.

Hmmm...
29 May 2002 | by (Cyberspace) – See all my reviews

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.
