Goodreads Synopsis:

Juliette Ferrars thought she'd won. She took over Sector 45, was named the new Supreme Commander, and now has Warner by her side. But she's still the girl with the ability to kill with a single touch—and now she's got the whole world in the palm of her hand. When tragedy hits, who will she become? Will she be able to control the power she wields and use it for good?

Book Review:
Pre-reading Thoughts:

I sped through the previous books in the series because they are honestly fantastic. I really recommend like nobodies business. I am so excited to see that the series is expanding because there is always that question of what happens next.

Thank you so much to Penguin Random House South Africa for being super amazing and sending me a copy of this book. Just a small disclaimer for those reading this review. I have received this book for free. Please note that this does not affect my opinion in any way. All thoughts are my own.

Writing Thoughts:

The writing is just as addictive as the other books. It just pulls you in and keeps you there until you realise that a hundred pages have passed and yet you still continue because you can't get enough. I love well Mafi uses the diary entries of Juliette. It is pure genius and the placement is well thought out and perfect.

Plot Thoughts:

The plot was a little different. I liked how we got to see how the characters are adjusting to this new world but I also found that not a lot happened. If you were looking for an action-packed book similar to the previous ones in the series, then you won't really find it here. The plot deals with the roles of everyone and how Juliette adjusts the work of being this important figure.

Character Thoughts:

One of the things that I like about Mafi is accessibleness of her characters. They are real and deal with emotions in the same way that we do. When Juliette is angry, she acts irrational and when Warner is sad, he shuts down. I did, however, feel as if a lot of characters took a back foot in this book. I also felt as if Castle was an odd piece of the puzzle.

Final Thoughts:

Overall, this book was the perfect continuation of the series. It showed the struggles that I new regime would go through. It showed the toll that the new roles took on the characters. I loved how I could pick up this book knowing that I would be completely sucked into the world all over again. I highly recommend that if you have been on the fence with this book, that you take the plunge and just read it. It was everything a reader needed to answer the question of what next. Thank you so much to Penguin Random House South Africa for providing me with a copy of this book!

Yours in Reading,
