** spoiler alert ** For the longest time I wondered, what happened to Tally? She really doesn't play much of a part in this book at all, which kind of surprised me. This book was by far my least favorite of Westerfeld's series. Although I liked Aya and getting to know her, I was sad not to know more about Tally, and when Tally did come back into the picture she kinda annoyed me. My feelings that I had at the end of Specials came back and Tally, for me, turned into this girl that thinks it is her "special" job to watch over the whole world. The inhumans or "extras" that come up in this book are a little vague for me. Were they once just normal people? I think that is what Westerfeld is alluding to... Frizz is my very favorite character in this book. He reminded me a lot of Zane, and I really liked Zane and was very sad when he died. The one thing that I appreciated in this book about Tally was when she pointed out to Frizz the importance of being brave enough to tell the truth on his own instead of with radical honesty. Truth-slanting and radical honesty were for sure my very favorite themes in this book.
