4 stars to Shattered (Slated #3) by Teri Terry

Published April 30, 2014 by katheryn13

Kyla is in danger from both the government Lorders who erased her memory and the terrorists who tried to use her. So now she’s on the run. Sporting a new identity and desperate to fill in the blank spaces of her life pre-Slating, Kyla heads to a remote mountain town to try to reunite with the birth mother she was kidnapped from as a child. There she is hoping all the pieces of her life will come together and she can finally take charge of her own future. But even in the idyllic wilderness and the heart of her original family, Kyla realizes there is no escape from the oppressive Lorders. Someone close to her may be one of them, and even more frighteningly, her birth mother has been keeping secrets of her own.

In this stunning series finale, Kyla finally finds out who she really is, and the road to this discovery, and to deciding who she wants to become, is full of dangerous twists and turns that will keep readers riveted.

 

 

Review:

So this last instalment of the Slated trilogy was a tornado of feelings. First off, how many names does Kyla need? I got so lost. Anyway, I loved this book. Was sad to see the series end, but it tied off loose bits and we find out more about  who Kyla really is. Or rather, we try to.

Having set off with a new identity, Kyla travels to Cumbria to meet her birth mother, Stella. Who well, I’m sure you can guess, has some secrets of her own. Things are never as straight forward as one hopes, and Kyla soon realises that there are more details of her life to unravel, just when she thought things were calming down. Become somewhat normal in a world full or terrors.

Kyla and Aidan, a guy who I actually forgot existed (it’d been a while since Fractured), helps her find the answers. Although there are new people introduced along the way, you still get the same classics like Ben. Oh Ben, WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU?!

That’s all I can on the matter.

Kyla becomes heavily involved with MIA and helps Mac and Aidan to unleash the truth about the Lorders and the government in order to shut them down. Unfortunately Stella’s mother who happens to be JCO (don’t ask me what that stands for, I just remember reading it a lot. >_<) for the Lorders and ends up sabotaging most of MIA’s effort, until a final revelation is revealed. This ending completely mind bombed me (new phrase, you like?). Page after page I needed to find out what and how this story would be resolved but damn if it didn’t kick me in the gut occasionally.

A dystopia with a twist to the future, this series is by far in my top 3 of series to read.
