The words have sent chills down Tally's spine since her days as a repellent, rebellious ugly. Back then Specials were a sinister rumor — frighteningly beautiful, dangerously strong, breathtakingly fast. Ordinary pretties might live their whole lives without meeting a Special. But Tally's never been ordinary.
And now she's been turned into one of them: a superamped fighting machine, engineered to keep the uglies down and the pretties stupid.
The strength, the speed, and the clarity and focus of her thinking feel better than anything Tally can remember. Most of the time. One tiny corner of her heart still remembers something more.
Still, it's easy to tune that out — until Tally's offered a chance to stamp out the rebels of the New Smoke permanently. It all comes down to one last choice: listen to that tiny, faint heartbeat, or carry out the mission she's programmed to complete. Either way, Tally's world will never be the same.
This book was sooo much better than the last two, plus it had a good ending! It had the excitement and the twists and the stupid mistakes that characters always make in books but it only makes the book better. It was a little sad, in the end, but I knew someone had to end up dying. It amazed me how Tally still had a hint of her ugly self even though her brain had been completely changed and she was barely even herself anymore. I also loved how the book went to places I'd never imagined it could go, the things that went wrong only added to the greatness of the book. A little slow in the beginning, but then again, I always say that. LOVED the ending! And overall, this book was amazingg! Again, I say that a lot too. If you haven't read this book, READ IT, and if you have, well, read it again!
