ARC for Review
Kitty Doe is a Blackcoat rebel and a former captive with a deadly connection to the most powerful and dangerous man in the country, Prime Minister Daxton Hart. Forced to masquerade as Daxton's niece, Lila Hart, Kitty has helped the Blackcoats take back the prison known as Elsewhere. But Daxton has no intention of ceding his position of privilege—or letting Kitty expose his own masquerade. Not in these United States, where each person's rank means the difference between luxury and poverty, freedom and fear...and ultimately, between life and death.
To defeat the corrupt government, Kitty must expose Daxton's secret. Securing evidence will put others in jeopardy, including the boy she's loved forever and an ally she barely trusts. For months, Kitty's survival has hinged on playing a part. Now she must discover who she truly wants to be, and whether the new world she and the rebels are striving to create has a place in it for her after all.
Full Circle…The Way It Was Meant to Be
What in the WORLD?! Oh my goodness I’ve been looking forward to this read for quite some time!! Disclaimer I am a FAN a HUGE FAN of Mrs. Carter of the Goddess books and of these books!!!! Okay so the second book fell a bit flat for me but in this installment all is well. From the very beginning I knew it would grow in awesome with every page it did just that. Kitty did everything I wanted to do Knox and even Benjy don't get me started on Greyson TO DIE FOR. Seriously there were some things I would have done differently but i’m here to love rant!!
The Story, this picks up right after the events of the last book. I was like way to excited for my own good when I picked this one up. Let me tell you it was WA WA WAYYYYYY worth the wait. Something has changed in Kitty and she is more than ever determined to make things right with her country. Get ready for a crazy up and down ride that is going to keep you guessing.
The Characters, Kitty yay she’s grown up quite a bit and I’m so proud of her. Knox yahoo finally!!! Yeeesh though I must be honest when I say I wanted more! Benjy finally realizes whats up and he does what it takes. I wish I could go into this more but I’d hate to be spoilery.
The End, MORE more MORE!!! I wanted so much more but i’d be lying if i said I was unhappy with the way things ended. Change is in the horizon sacrifices have been made and things look generally good. The things that were supposed to happen from the very beginning have. The one major difference is Kitty…She is now a permanent fixture the whole country is proud of. Bravo Carter!! Nailed it!!
5.0 yep thats 100% fan girl based…I just hope we get a novella cause I WOULD DIE!!!
