Still, it's easy to tune that out — until Tally's offered a chance to stamp out the rebels of the New Smoke permanently. It all comes down to one last choice: listen to that tiny, faint heartbeat, or carry out the mission she's programmed to complete. Either way, Tally's world will never be the same."
I've been struggling with this review for a while now. I think I finished the book over a month ago.
I really liked Specials. It was really, really good, and yet I don't know what to say about it. Tally was definitely less annoying in this book. She seemed like a bit of a pushover in the last two books.
It's been so long since I read it that I'm having trouble remembering what all happened. There were some really good action scenes, and the plot was really good. As with all the other Scott Westerfeld books I've read, the writing was amazing. Tally's world is just so awesome (though, I'd never want to live there, it's just really fun to read about). That's really all I can think to say. Oh wait, I really, really, really want a hoverboard. They're one of the most awesome fictional forms of transportation EVER! It would be so awesome if the Specials' hoverbaords were real. They were the best. :)
Okay, now I'm out of things to say and I've officially hit my limit on "reallys" for the rest of the week. On to the rating.
This book is (really) Too Much Rock for One Hand.
