YOU CAN BE A VII. IF YOU GIVE UP EVERYTHING.
For Kitty Doe, it seems like an easy choice. She can either spend her life as a III in misery, looked down upon by the higher ranks and forced to leave the people she loves, or she can become a VII and join the most powerful family in the country.
If she says yes, Kitty will be Masked—surgically transformed into Lila Hart, the Prime Minister's niece, who died under mysterious circumstances. As a member of the Hart family, she will be famous. She will be adored. And for the first time, she will matter.
There's only one catch. She must also stop the rebellion that Lila secretly fostered, the same one that got her killed and one Kitty believes in. Faced with threats, conspiracies and a life that's not her own, she must decide which path to choose—and learn how to become more than a pawn in a twisted game she's only beginning to understand.
- This book had all the parts to make up for a good dystopian series – a heroine, a screwed up governing body, a hot boy (or two), people who need to be saved from the government and no real freedom.
- The whole “face-off” situation in this book was unique. I cannot imagine what Kitty had to feel like. I am trying not to spoil anything, so you will see when you read. But wowizers, it would be interesting to put yourself in her shoes.
- I loved the whole branding with the caste system. Taking a test to put you into categories. It was an interesting way to keep people under control.
- The whole governing family was a soap opera, especially the grandmother! You had to keep reading because you didn’t know what would happen next!
- The book was well-written, I really enjoyed some of the metaphors and the prose in the book. I have never read anything my Amiee Carter, but now I am excited to see what else she has!
with the “soap opera” situation with governing family, there were
multiple times where I was like “seriously?!” There was so much drama
that it made it a little outrageous near the end. I really enjoyed the
book, but that is definitely what stopped me from giving it a 5 star
