***SPOILERS***

This is the second book in the series. The first book, Perfection, is about a mind reading warrior girl, Ellyssa, created to have no emotions and rid the new Aryan world of all the non-pure races, hair colors and eye colors. Hitler won the war. She learns to have feelings and falls for one of the renegades, Rein. I highly recommend reading the first book before reading Flawed!

Flawed starts out with Ellyssa, Rein, and Woody coming back from The Center after they took down Ellyssa`s creator, to find most of their friends and family dead. The ones that were left were in concentration camps or working for the Gestapo, if their coloring matched the Aryan look. Meanwhile Ellyssa`s brother, Xaver, and sister, Aalexis, are trying to find Ellyssa, and carry out their father's work.

Rein, Ellyssa, and some other friends are heading to the camp to save the remaining renegades. Xaver and Aalexis are hot on their trail, but they are missing one thing, Matthew and the hope that family and friends bring. While on the way to the camp they run into other renegades and her the help they need to save their friends.

This book does have some spelling and grammatical errors, but not enough to be distracting. Another thing I dislike about this book is that Aalexis is having a physical attraction to her brother, Xaver!! I know it is a book of fiction, but come on, my mind doesn't want to go there!

The plot of this book keeps you entertained, but the huge amount of grammatical errors and horrendous editing really ruined this story for me. It read like a fourth grader had written it with no regard for using the correct words, spelling, or context. If anyone edited this book before publishing they should be fired. The book itself was interesting if predictable, with little character development. Romance scenes were cliched and very tame, but I guess that comes with the YA genre. I did like the story, even if it felt a little one dimensional. Worth the read, but definitely could have been executed better.

All that potential of a racism-influenced dystopia, all of it wasted on a love story. That is what disappointed me the most about Flawed. There is this brilliant concept of a world governed by a person's genetics and how it can be taught to be accepting and the plot is more focused on the love scenes between the protagonist Ellyssa and her movie boyfriend Rein. When thinking about the emotional awakening of conditioned soldiers, I would think empathy is a more useful emotion than love, but yeah - all YA has to be focused on love, right? Atleast Perfection had focused on Ellyssa forgetting her conditioning and joining the Renegades but Flawed was a poor rehash of Perfection. Simply put, Flawed suffers from the Sequel Syndrome - can't live up to the potential of the first.

The writing was good but can't sustain a plot that focuses on how hot the guys are. We get - they are the 'perfect' specimens, blah blah. Xaver is a sociopathic romantic - we get it! Rein is hot as Sam Winchester - we get it! Can we just move on to the actual story? Honestly, the start of the book was a snoozefest and I lost interest in Ellyssa POV pretty soon. Aalexis and Mathew gave a good narrative and honestly, it was more interesting through their eyes. In a book where there is a freaking containment camp, how can oodles of pages be devoted to the lovefest going on? I get that every dystopian book is avoiding trying to be the next Hunger Games, but incorporating romance in a dystopia is a pretty silly concept. Delirium did it right - well, that was basically the main plot point there - but here? Nah, just don't go there in a dystopia.

I absolutely cannot wait for the next book. I am dissappointed that no one has rated this a 5 star book. I most definately can reread this book over and over (same with Perfection) and I recommend this book to anyone who loved the first book. I believe this was the perfection sequel.
In Flawed, we get to see Rein's and Ellyssa's relationship grow. The way Ellyssa grows with her emotions is outstanding and we see that Aalexis and Xaver are also developing emotions, much to Aalexis distress.
The book picks up close to where Perfection ended. Rein, Woody and Ellyssa find out what happens to their family and they go on a journey to save the ones that are still alive.
I must say this book brought tears to my eyes in some parts, but it was an amazing read.

This book is even better than the first. I have to partially agree with the bad review on here, the love stuff is a little overwhelming. Part of me understands it because as someone allowing themselves to experience emotions for the first time - first love and lust would be all consuming and a huge founding part of their lives. However, part of me kind of wishes that was played out in her head, and not always so open. Rein would be experiencing love and lust before, he should be able to focus on something besides her.

However - the scenes with Matthew and Aalexis make this all worthwhile. There is some intense drama being played out in this book. It sincerely makes me a little sick to my stomach in both cases, just seeing human cruelty at it's worst.

This book is a 100% recommend. Just go into it eyes wide open that the romance part of it heavily exists. Still worth the read.
