** spoiler alert ** 4.5 stars.

Pretties delved more into the setting of this series. We get more of a glimpse of just what is going on on the outside, and not just the smoke.

I really liked Zane as a new character and I liked that there were new characters; it wasn't simply a return Of the whole cast. As a love interest, I felt it made sense and I think I liked it more than I did Tally and David.

I'm not sure about the ending, if I could say anything bad. It felt a little bit like deus ex machina that it tuned out Tally (and, I'm assuming, other Pretties with enough willpower) could cure herself. I just don't buy that brain legions could be cured without any medical treatment, sorry.

This is a short review. I loved this story, but I'll probably be more thorough when I finish the series.
