Thalli and her friends are back in the State. After having escaped and enjoyed the freedom of New Hope, they find themselves once again at the mercy of the Scientists, particularly Dr. Loudin. Determined to find a way to stop Loudin from destroying the world for a second time, Thalli learns that she must depend upon the Designer in ways she'd not thought possible especially in light of some very startling discoveries. But as she struggles to come to grips with this new information, she is faced with  a choice - to be the one to stop it all or to allow death to come to all she loves. How can she choose?

I have real mixed feelings about this book, and series in general. I enjoyed the first book, got bored with the second so didn't finish it, and this one didn't make me fall in love with it. I know that several of my blogging friends have loved this series and this book in particular, but I'm not one of them. I'm not really sure why that is either. I found the book very easy to get into, but I also kept putting it down for several days at a time. I wasn't that into it. But when I did pick it up, I enjoyed it.

Thalli has changed a lot since we first met her in Anomaly. While some of the changes are good, the fact that she still remains somewhat childish bother me in this book. I'll admit that I was tired of her "woe is me attitude." What totally and completely surprised me in this one, was the reveal of her parentage. I truly didn't see it coming. But looking back, it does make sense. For me, the choice between the two young men was very obvious. And I'm glad I wasn't disappointed in who she ultimately chose.

I loved Rhen. I didn't care too much for her in book one, and don't remember her much in two as I didn't finish it, but in this one, she really shines. Her logical mind has come to accept the Designer and will work hard to convince others of that fact.

Overall, this wasn't my favorite by this author. Don't get me wrong. The series is good. I was just rather bored with this book. I didn't see it as riveting as others have claimed.

I received this book for free from the Booklook Blogger Program for the purpose of reviewing. I was not required to like the book, only give my honest opinion. My thoughts and opinions are my own.

Recommended to fans of Divergent, Hunger Games, dystopian fiction, young adult, Krista McGee
