On the one hand, I liked the book. On the other hand, it wasn't my favorite and the reason for that is Kenly.
Like others who have left reviews have said, make sure you read the books in order and timely. If you're like me and you read the other books before this one came out and it has been months and many other series between those books and this one, you may find yourself working really hard to pull up details from the previous books. Especially since this one is from Kenly's perspective. I actually enjoyed that to a certain extent just to hear what it was like for the other Talented and Created individuals outside Talia's immediate range. However, I'm not as invested in Kenly as I am Talia and Erik, although I did like Riley, James, and Willa. They are great additions to the cast of characters I've come to like reading about in the series.
In this one, we get the perspective of those over the pond. We learn that life was definitely not cushy for the Talented (or Chrome as they are known by overseas), unlike how it was in the US before Toxic fell. Luckily for Kenly, after escaping the US and fleeing overseas, she gets taken in by a good group of Chromes. The majority of the book details how hard life is and exactly how lucky she was and how she took that life for granted. She drove me absolutely bonkers. She wavered between being scared and mediocre to being angry and overconfident/careless. And then she wants to play hero at the end while casting blame and trying to shame others for not jumping on her bandwagon. I could almost forgive that because I understood and could empathize with her disgust of the Poachers, but I'm still waiting for her to have that "aha" moment. I'm not sure she actually learned how wrong she was. I'm guessing the next book will help with that, but definitely hope it isn't all from Kenly's perspective. I do want to see where her and her group go from here, but also want to go back to Talia and her team.
Although I didn't share her opinions about TOXIC and Talia I still respected them. I was hopeful when she figured out that she was manipulated and her views were wrong.
After the attack on D.C. kenly was made to run, get out of there and try to make it. She did escape, but has been in hiding and on the run. News reports says United is hunting the created. Kenly is in certain danger.
She manages to evade United and takes up hiding in London, she soon finds allies and maybe love. She also finds a prospect more terrifying than anything she has ever imagined. Talented and created being taken, being humiliated and sold!
Thank god for friends you didn't know you had. Help comes just in the nic of time.
Her views of talia and of toxic were not the same as mine
I was excited to see things from a new perspective. It was full of action and suspense. Having some of the original characters be apart of it was nice. The setting in London allowed us to see how somewhere else had fared. With it taking place in London and having new characters, it gives unexpected surprises and Kenly's adventure is one I could not put down.
I recommend starting from book one in this series to get the full enjoyment and appreciation for the world of the talented. The author did a great job of tying this into the rest of the series as it was a perfect fit. I highly recommend this series.
