About the Book:

Frey and Rafi are inseparable . . . but very few people have ever seen them together. This is because Frey is Rafi’s double, raised in the shadow’s 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. 




Frey has never been out in the world on her own – until her father sends her in Rafi’s place to act as collateral for a dangerous deal. Everyone thinks she’s her sister – but Col, the son of a rival leader, is starting to get close enough to tell the difference. As the stakes grow higher and higher, Frey must decide whether she can trust him – or anyone in her life.

This title will be released on September 11, 2018.

Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: I didn't realize this was part of the Uglies series. I was thinking this was a totally new book. Well color me suprised! 

Do I Recommend this book? Yes if you are a fan of this world I think this is a book you would enjoy! 

Notes and Opinions: I really didn't fall in love with the Uglies books or the Extras. I do not own any of them in print and really hadn't thought about them before this title came our way.  I really just got bored with the story and thought it was really dragged out.  So I was a little sacred to read this one.  So when I started this I didn't even know it was connected with either series.  And I am kind of glad that I didn't for the fact that I would have never picked it up.  This world has changed so much to what I remember (yes I had to look some stuff up) from the other titles.  It did a great job bringing the reader in and keeping me there.  I was engrosed with the characters and the mind altering effects that this surgery brings.  We still have a lot going on in this title and a ton of upheaval with the charaters and this world.  

This had the vibe of a girl undercover and I really really liked it.  After reading this one I might just have to go back and grab the other books in these series and try them again! I think that you could probably read this one without reading the others but you will most likely get more out of it if you are fan of the series as a whole.  


Go Into This One Knowing: Great new start!
