An Other You, by C.P. Ancliff
Overall, An Other You, by C.P. Ancliff is a excellent first book in a debut series. There's suspense, a well-developed conflict, layered characters, and a clear sense of the writer's tone and style throughout the book.
The main character, Jack, has a snarky attitude and dry sense of humor that immediately draws the reader into his personal turmoil. Not only is Ancliff’s writing funny and dark, but it made me want to know more about the complexity of Jack and his past, right away. Jack cloaks most of his true feelings in sarcasm, but you can sense the deeper side to his character from the beginning. The story also flashes between the past and present, and this combination steadily builds the suspense throughout the chapters.
I appreciated that the reader didn’t experience The Drop firsthand, but was more thrown into the chaos along with the rest of the characters. Coming into the story five years after the initial conflict created a sense of curiosity and urgency. I was dying to know more about the dramatic event, but the story was packed with other details, such as how the world is coping with an influx of the same people, people with the same DNA, and many more logistical concerns, which made this a quick, fast-paced read. I’m very excited to see where the story goes and how these characters will continue to develop.
Jack can’t get away from the better version of himself. When The Drop happened — timelines from other dimensions converged — Jack suddenly found that he had more than one Other out there, seemingly haunting him and bringing out his biggest insecurities. It's one thing to think about what might have been, but Jack has to live with the reality of that question. Some very real issues for Jack are suddenly brought into reality that he doesn't even fully understand.
Things get even more complicated when the girl of Jack's dreams just might be a killer with her own complicated past. Jack’s made a deal with the Devil and can’t help but wonder, is he really a killer and does he really have a choice?
Sci-fi readers, suspense readers, thriller fans, and Marvel fans will appreciate An Other You, by C.P. Ancliff. A few trigger warnings to consider include depression, violence, and alcohol use.
