"Fast-paced and full of crosses and double-crosses, right to the cliffhanger ending."
"A tense, paranoid story in which layers of treachery, deceit, and danger are peeled away one by one. . . . Charbonneau makes excellent use of her dystopian theme in a twisty story that hits its mark."
"[A] compelling mix of new lies, double crosses, and increasingly menacing government figures focused on destroying Cia."
"Fans of The Testing will be thrilled with this new installment and will be anxiously waiting for the story's conclusion."
—School Library Journal
"Charbonneau has created an elegantly organized plot that will keep the reader engaged and wondering how this richly layered plot will unfold. . . . The tension and conflict will have readers at the edge of their seats as the imagery and complexities of the characters and plot design are exposed."
