Warning: Contains spoilers of the first two books: Birthmarked and Prized.
Gaia leads her people back to Sylum. Not yet comfortable as a leader, she knows when they arrive she’ll have to deal with the Protectorat, but while she’s been gone Sylum has undergone many changes. New sciences are being developed, and if Gaia wants to save her people, she may have to trade her life.
Well, I finished this series.
It wasn’t easy but I did it.
What I liked about this book was the fact that actions (sometimes) had consequences.
What I didn’t like about this book was the weak resolution of a love triangle and the drawn out nature of the plot.
I began this book because I thought it would be an interesting commentary on woman’s experience, but that didn’t happen so much in this book. And if it did, it obviously went over my head.
Honestly, I’m just happy to be done. For those who haven’t began the series yet, I would say don’t bother. The ending really isn’t worth it, and there are far better female-centered dystopians out there.
Don’t just take my word for it!
