Specials by Scott Westerfeld

02 Oct

In the final book of the trilogy, Tally and some of the elite group the Crims have become specials. Being special gives them the power to rule over just about anybody with a great sense of entitlement. When Tally tricks her former friends into traveling to the New Smoke so she can obliterate it, she starts to realize that being a special isn’t all that it is cracked up to be.

Quickly paced, the novel is broken down into three sections. The characters are mildly developed-what you know is mostly from the previous books in the series. The setting is less important. The tone is dark and fearful. The author wants the reader to see the outrageous behavior that can come from genetic manipulation and the fear that comes from realizing your life is just part of an overall plan to take over the world. 2006, 372 pages.
