's review

it was amazing

Once I picked it up, I didn't want to put this book down. Perfected was a compelling and creepy story, even though I could see some things coming way before Ella realized them. Tarnished is just as - if not more so - creepy. Ella and Penn were separated at the end of book 1 by police officers at the U.S./Canada border, and this book begins one week later with Ella stuck in a Canadian refugee centre. This book was more action packed than the first one with plenty of twists and turns along the way, showing the reader the dark underbelly of NuPet and the black market. I loved how Ella grows over the course of the novel from a pampered Pet, who can't fend for herself to a fierce young woman. Can't wait to see how the story continues.
