Dylan’s pick for January is Cain’s Blood by Geoffrey Girard. His review: 

Take the DNA from notable serial killers and use it to clone an army of kids to use against the world as a bioweapon. Now raise those kids in a controlled environment with surrogate families and do not let them know the truth. This is the psychological basis for Cain’s Blood.

When Jeffrey Dahmer’s clone learns the truth, he decides to run, and the other clones are released to hunt him down.

A compelling twist on nature vs. nurture.

In the third novella set in the world of children who have to live in the real world after life in magical lands, we are introduced to Cora, who arrived from a watery world. However, she is soon sent off on a quest to save the sugary land of Confection by preventing a girl from being murdered–the problem is, she’s already dead. Luckily, Confection is a Nonsense world, so little trifles like that don’t matter!
