And we return to the world of the Uglies series…
Frey and Rafi are inseparable but very few people have ever seen them together. This is because Frey is Rafi’s body double, raised in the shadows of their rich father’s fortress. While Rafi has been taught to charm, Frey has been taught to kill. Frey only exists to protect her sister. There is no other part of her life until her father sends her in Rafi’s place to act as collateral for a dangerous deal… as the stakes grow higher, trust is brought into question..
As I was told we could read this book without having to read The Uglies series, this was my first time reading a book by Scott Westerfeld and I really enjoyed it!! I loved the premise and the non stop action from page one right to the end – incredibly easy read and a real page turner.. Howevever, I would recommended reading the Uglies series before this one as some of the referencing or jargon that’s in this book can be a little confusing if you’re not familiar with the Uglies world.. But overall it was a great read!! Quite unique and very fast paced..
Special thanks to Allen and Unwin for sending me a review copy of this book.
