Specials - Scott Westerfeld

Published Date: June 20, 2008
Genre: Sci-Fi/Fantasy
"Special Circumstances": The words have sent chills down Tally's spine since her days as a repellent, rebellious ugly. Back then Specials were a sinister rumor -- frighteningly beautiful, dangerously strong, breathtakingly fast. Ordinary pretties might live their whole lives without meeting a Special. But Tally's never been ordinary.

And now, in the third book in the series, Tally's been turned into a Special: a superamped fighting machine, engineered to keep the uglies down and the pretties stupid. 

The strength, the speed, and the clarity and focus of her thinking feel better than anything Tally can remember. Most of the time. One tiny corner of her heart still remembers something more. 

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.

One of the all time best-selling series that I have read. 

Scott Westerfeld knows how to capture his reader's eyes. From Uglies all the way to Specials [so far], Tally Youngblood has captured the hearts of those she has met. Even from being a Pretty to becoming a Special, she has enraptured those she comes upon with her bubbly and iciness. 

Do I recommend reading this book? Absolutely because you will fall in love with the series and not be able to stop reading them.

I rate this book a solid 4.5 out of 5 stars because I do not believe everyone will love this book series because not a lot of people like fiction and fantasy. But I love, loved, loved, this book. 

Next books to be read are Dangerous Deception (Dangerous Creatures #2) by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl and Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard.
