Not normally a fan of science fiction or futuristic tales, this reader took a chance on the recent re-released `Clinic' from Cate Culpepper because it was recommended by friends. I'm happy to report said friends have not disappointed me yet.

`Clinic' is a simple story with likeable characters. It's easy to follow and doesn't take a lot of deep thinking to understand what's happening. The Clinic is a military research facility that uses political prisoners as lab rats. Newly transferred from a civilian clinic is a medic named Brenna. As her first case, Brenna is assigned to care for Jesstin, a warrior from Tristaine - descendants of the Amazons - who was convicted of a murder she did not commit. Brenna's boss, Caster, is an evil woman who has planned some extremely brutal trials for Jesstin. At first, Brenna follows orders, but she cannot reconcile being a healer with being forced to hurt her patient. Things get even harder for Brenna when she falls in love with... Read more
I was wrapped up in this novel from the first chapter. The world the author writes of is as frighteningly horrible and stiflingly as Orwell's 1984. The character of Jess is dragged from her idyllic world of Tristaine into a prison called 'The Clinic'. There she is ministered to by a new medic, Brenna, who treats her injuries inflicted by the authorities experimentations. Brenna comes to question all her beliefs and the story takes off. Strong writing and characterization make this novel a winner that you will remember long after you read it.

The story of Tristaine is continued in 'Battle for Tristaine' (2006); 'Tristaine Rises' (2006); 'Queens of Tristaine' (2007).

When Brenna begins work as a medic at a clinic where political prisoners are held and interrogated, she's not supposed to feel anything for the miscreants she doctors. Despite cultural and political expectations, however, Brenna can't help but feel for her patients. In particular, one named Jess piques her curiosity, and Brenna can't resist the gradual slide into involvement, even if it's dangerous and the clinic director, Caster, may find out. In contrast to the repressive world where Brenna now lives, the village of Tristaine that she learns about from Jess sounds like a haven, and as she gets to know Jess, Brenna finds herself longing for things she'd never considered. Will she acquiesce to the powers that be - or take a chance and follow her heart? Even more troubling, will Jess survive the ordeals she is put through? The first of what is so far a three-part series (BATTLE FOR TRISTAINE: Book II, TRISTAINE RISES: Book III), THE CLINIC sets the tone for what promises to be a... Read more
