Replika: Sky's Mission is a futuristic sci-fi novel written by Hugo Bernard. In the 22nd century, humans have evolved augmented reality to the extent that they can enter their consciousness into a simulation called Replika, where they have no memories of the real world. But not everyone is enamored with operating Replika as an underground organization named the Corporeal aims to do away with it. Sky, a devoted Corporeal activist, finds herself forced to enter Replika to protect her brother Hugh, upon whom some of the first experiments on consciousness were done. Meanwhile, in Replika, Morgan is desperate to rescue his girlfriend Aviva, a journalist, who's missing after an attack on Paris by the Red Masks. However, things are not as they seem as a nefarious group employs plans of their own.
An intricate plot coupled with a highly stimulating premise makes Replika: Sky's Mission a contender for one of the best sci-fi novels of this year. Yes, it's that good. The best way to describe Hugo Bernard's gripping dystopian sci-fi thriller is if The Matrix met Inception. The narrative is complex, constantly switching timelines, POVs, and even the settings to keep you hooked throughout the pages. Bernard builds upon an intriguing premise to create an absolute blockbuster of a tale that not only absorbs every bit of your attention but will have you pondering the nature of reality itself. I thoroughly enjoyed every single page. If you're a fan of neo-noir dystopian thrillers, I can't recommend Replika: Sky's Mission highly enough.
