Series: 3rd and final book in the Blackcoat Rebellion series
Kitty Doe is a Blackcoat rebel and a former captive with a deadly connection to the most powerful and dangerous man in the country, Prime Minister Daxton Hart. Forced to masquerade as Daxton’s niece, Lila Hart, Kitty has helped the Blackcoats take back the prison known as Elsewhere. But Daxton has no intention of ceding his position of privilege—or letting Kitty expose his own masquerade. Not in these United States, where each person’s rank means the difference between luxury and poverty, freedom and fear…and ultimately, between life and death.
To defeat the corrupt government, Kitty must expose Daxton’s secret. Securing evidence will put others in jeopardy, including the boy she’s loved forever and an ally she barely trusts. For months, Kitty’s survival has hinged on playing a part. Now she must discover who she truly wants to be, and whether the new world she and the rebels are striving to create has a place in it for her after all.
The Blackcoats are on the run, Daxton has lost his mind and is bombing Elsewhere, Knox is possibly dead, it’s all happening in this book. A few main characters end up dead, or assumed dead, and it all comes good in the end, including Kitty’s relationships (let’s just say, I disapproved of one of her prevailing relationships in this series and was rooting for her to end up with someone, who she does, so yay!)
It’s a real action-packed read that I had a hard time putting down, and I’m a bit sad to see the end of this series as I would like to see what Kitty does to help rebuild her world after the events of these books. Perhaps that might come in a future series? That’d be interesting.
Queen rating: 7.5/10
Would I re-read it? Yes
Who would I recommend it to? Fans of the series, dystopian fiction, action books, books where the underdogs totally come out on top.
