School Library Journal Review
Gr 7 Up-The highly anticipated return to the world of the "Uglies" series does not disappoint. In the years after Tally Youngblood's disappearance, a new order rules in Shreve: Rafi and Frey's father is a merciless dictator, who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. Rafi and Frey, who are identical twins, are merely pawns in his deranged quest for power. Rafi, the elder sibling, was raised to be the perfect daughter and heir, a master of poise and etiquette. Frey, on the other hand, was raised in secret as her body double. Trained as a killer, Frey's entire purpose is to protect Rafi, sacrificing herself if she must. When Frey is sent at their father's behest as a hostage to a rival country, she is the perfect imposter. The plan is for Frey to stay for a short time while their father helps with a local rebellion. Unfortunately, their father doesn't seem to care so much about bringing her back alive. Westerfeld's fast-paced and engaging storytelling will effortlessly engross "Uglies" fans and new readers alike in the dystopian world of Shreve. Frey's journey from secret twin to a revolutionary hero is unique and well developed with a surprising twist. With some light romance, innovative sci-fi weaponry, and a page-turning plot, this is sure to delight teens. VERDICT A fun-filled, action-adventure, science fiction story that can either be a great introduction to the "Uglies" universe, or a welcoming return. Highly recommended.-Ariel Birdoff, New York Public Library © Copyright 2018. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
Booklist Review
Only a select few know Frey and Rafi are twins; most people think Rafi is their rich father's sole heir. But Frey is also Rafi's body double, taught to kill for and protect her more charming sister. It's been her sole focus for 16 years, until her father sends her in Rafi's place to participate in a dangerous deal. Everyone thinks she's her sister but the stakes grow higher when she begins to fall for Col, the son of the rival leader, who may eventually learn her secret, putting both her and Rafi in danger. Set some years after Westerfeld's Uglies series, this is a story of the lengths one is willing to go to keep their loved ones safe. Fans of the original quartet will be delighted to see how much the world of Tally Youngblood has grown and expanded. Frey is a strong, likable protagonist, a fitting heir to the series' original characters. Even if readers aren't familiar with the original series, they'll still enjoy this well-paced novel from start to finish. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Westerfeld's many, many fans will line up for this return to the world of his überpopular Uglies.--Qurratulayn Muhammad Copyright 2018 Booklist
