Review by tim_halpin
I was looking forward to reading this sequel to Slated, but generally I don't think it's quite as good. That's not to say it's bad though.One of the things I liked most about Slated was the dystopian version of Britain. It seemed believable, and I enjoyed exploring it. There's not so much of that here, it's mostly all been found out already. There are some more conspiracies and intrigues, but mostly going over old ground. My other favourite part of Slated was Kyla's character, which she was discovering at the same time as the reader. And she's still a strong character, but she spends so much time being introspective and angsty that I got a bit bored of her.I found the twists of the plot - who's betraying who, etc - rather predictable, and Kyla's motives seem to becoming more and more conventional, to the point that it was pretty clichéd.But still worth a read. Sorry, Teri Terry, I don't mean to be discouraging.

I'm trying to decide whether I liked this book better than Slated. I was frustrated with a lot of things in this novel, but I did like the ending and the fact that it didn't have a cliffhanger. I also liked it enough to read the next book in the trilogy. But there were still things that are not working for me. The fact that girls can't be friends in this series or that every guy character seems to love Kyla is odd, but on the plus side, there is no love triangle. So hooray for that.<br/><br/>Full review to come.
