YOU CAN BE A VII. IF YOU GIVE UP EVERYTHING.
For Kitty Doe, it seems like an easy choice. She can either spend her life as a III in misery, looked down upon by the higher ranks and forced to leave the people she loves, or she can become a VII and join the most powerful family in the country.
If she says yes, Kitty will be Masked—surgically transformed into Lila Hart, the Prime Minister's niece, who died under mysterious circumstances. As a member of the Hart family, she will be famous. She will be adored. And for the first time, she will matter.
There's only one catch. She must also stop the rebellion that Lila secretly fostered, the same one that got her killed and one Kitty believes in. Faced with threats, conspiracies and a life that's not her own, she must decide which path to choose—and learn how to become more than a pawn in a twisted game she's only beginning to understand.
I spotted this book while looking through recommendations on Goodreads & then found it at my library. I read Aimee Carter's Goddess Test books and I liked them so I was hoping I would like this book too. It started out a little slow for me & really wasn't what I was expecting but it picked up quickly & had lots of twists and turns that I really enjoyed. I loved Kitty throughout the entire book but I really had trouble making up my mind about some of the other characters. There were some that were easy to hate, but others I couldn't decide if Kitty should trust them or if they were just as bad as the obvious "bad guys."
In the end I'm glad that I picked this book up & I can't wait to read the next one when it comes out!
