Impostors

Frey and Rafi are inseparable . . . but very few people have ever seen them together. This is because Frey is Rafi’s double, raised in the shadows of their rich father’s fortress. While Rafi has been taught to charm, Frey has been taught to kill. Frey only exists to protect her sister. There is no other part of her life. Frey has never been out in the world on her own – un...

    I liked the characters, the plot, the setting... I truly can't think of anything that I didn't like, come to think of it. My only complaint in the whole thing was that Mr. Westerfeld, sir, I need a 

    because I cannot figure out where all these towns are. I beg of you, 

    Erm anyway.

    There were little throwbacks to the first book, but it wasn't overwhelming at all- I needn't have remembered much (which is good since I read it five years ago) and if you really wanted,

    . Because it's set, appropriately, years later, in a very different sort of world.

    I basically could not stop reading, it sucked me in from the very start.

    This is a personal thing, but goodness I love a short chapter- plus it makes for very easy "one more chapter"-ing late into the night.

    not just Frey, were great. Even some of the more minor characters were awesome- and a few were perfect for a couple of lighter moments that were great in the midst of a pretty dark situation.

    Is book 6 out yet? Because I am totally in, and cannot wait to see what else this world and these characters have in store for them! And also, excited about those maps ;)

    I admit to being a tiny bit sceptical before reading this, as I didn't love

If you liked the previous books set in the Uglies world, you should be satisfied with this. I'm in for the next book.

    3.5/5

    For all you people in the back, can I get an INSTA-LOVE?

    Okay enough shenanigans the book was super good and I loved being back in the uglies world. I didn’t know how much I missed the phrase ‘crash bracelets’ until I read this. It was super instalovey but hey UGLIES. Also them Tally references ooooooft. Not to toot my own horn but I finished this in 3 hours, I am a living legend. It was almost too fast paced in some aspects but hey she’ll be right.

    “Crash bracelets”.

    When I heard about this book I was so excited - I loved the Uglies books growing up. I loved the twisted world, the acerbic take-down of societal conceptions of beauty. And now I'm back in the same world watching a similar take-down of the people in power. and it's excellent.

    I loved the changes in the characters, how the Frey from the first page isn't the Frey from the last page, how the truth about Rafi

    I loved the changes in the characters, how the Frey from the first page isn't the Frey from the last page, how the truth about Rafia is slowly revealed. I loved that there was so little trust and so much hope, so much pretending.

    There is a bit of romance in the story, but it's not front and centre. To be honest I could very easily ignore it. It felt a bit convenient, and with the relationship between the particular characters it often felt more like an emotional outlet and a bit of mutual attraction than anything serious.

    The ending is spectacular. This book is a bit of a thrill to read, packed with action and battle scenes, the hard reality of Frey's life is there on the page and explored in her every action. But that ending left me desperate for more.

    Impostors may be the fifth book in the Uglies world, but you don't need to have read any of the other books first as this is set in a future timeline and generally deals with different characters and cities.

    the

    scanning the reviews for this, there has been one word that keeps popping up and that is ‘nonstop.’ i cant think of a better word to describe this book. this hits the ground running from the very first chapter and honestly doesnt slow down. its action packed, full of daring rebellion and planning. the fact that there was always something going on, in addition to the very simplistic and unhindered writing, makes this a story that is difficult to put down. and dont even get me started on that ending - holy cow. i cant wait to see what happens in the next book! the plot development and pacing of this was just so good!

    however, i think the one thing i was really hoping to get from this, which may have led to too high of expectations, was more interaction with the world. as i said, i loved the

    series, so i have been beyond excited to relive that experience, in a way. but there honestly wasnt much world building. if anything, this story was extremely plot driven (hence calling it nonstop), and other than a few subtle mentions here and there, there wasnt really anything that connected this with the

    series. so that aspect was a miss for me.

    but overall, this was a fast and easy-going read. it definitely delivers a couple hours worth of active entertainment and a very promising hope for the series to come!

    HERE IT IS I AM SO HAPPY I CAN'T AHHHH MOST ANTICIPATED RELEASE EVER!

    Also, I will say when I saw the trailer I thought it was becoming a movie franchise or something... BUT THIS IS SO MUCH BETTER. SO MANY STORIES TO BE TOLD IN THIS WORLD I AM SO BEYOND EXCITED!

    This book was a fast-paced, page turner of a read from the start all the way through to the finish.

    Personally, I feel that this book may have received a higher rating from me if I would have reread the whole "Uglies" series prior to reading this new installment. I think it may have changed my overall reading experience to refresh myself of the original story, as well as remind myself of what exactly is different within the Ugly universe.

    With that being said though, it isn't necessary

    This book was a fast-paced, page turner of a read from the start all the way through to the finish.

    Personally, I feel that this book may have received a higher rating from me if I would have reread the whole "Uglies" series prior to reading this new installment. I think it may have changed my overall reading experience to refresh myself of the original story, as well as remind myself of what exactly is different within the Ugly universe.

    With that being said though, it isn't necessary or mandatory to read the original trilogy prior to picking this novel up. Yes, it may aid in the understanding of the world building, but the main characters in this novel are different than the main characters in the earlier series.

    I really liked the overall premise and plot regarding this storyline. I never have thought of a "body double" in this particular circumstance and it was a very unique idea, especially due to the political background behind the reasoning.

    As for the relationship component of this novel, I don't want to give too much away but I will say that it was a little too 'insta-love' for me. I actually do enjoy 'insta-love' to some degree but I found that the relationship developed quite quickly and that there should have been more of a hesitancy from the male in this relationship. I mean, this girl has lied and has essentially ruined your family, but go ahead, don't ask questions...

    My one (extremely minor) pet peeve of this novel was certain terminology that was used as an example of the language within this particular universe. Again, it's very minor and was not overly used but I loathed every time I saw a phrase similar to "brain-missing" or "dizzy-making". I understand, it's part of these characters' language but I am not a fan.

    Lastly, let me give some major applause for that ending! The ending may have been my favourite part of the whole novel (I'm not throwing shade, I swear it was just that good). It left off with such a unique cliffhanger that I can only wonder how the characters will get out of the predicament that they are facing. Due to that ending, I cannot wait to pick up the next book in the series when it comes out. I need to know what happens next!

    ***Thank you to Scholastic Canada for sending me an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review***
