• Kira is an anomaly in the Leda clone world, born of the should-be sterile Sarah Manning. Though much-loved by Sarah and the entire clone family, Kira wasn’t always the center of Sarah’s world. Mostly raised by Mrs. S, she’s now in the middle of the clone conspiracy because Sarah couldn’t have picked a worst time to re-commit herself to motherhood. Kira’s been kidnapped, learned who her father is, and suffered pain to help her clone Aunt Cosima. But as turbulent as Kira’s world is, she possesses a calm that speaks to an inherent wisdom that at times seems to verge on the metaphysical.
