    We have a title! Personally, I'm not a big fan of it, but you know what? I'm basing that on the fact I've yet to read Impostors. It's silently judging me.

Frey finds herself in the middle of many battles - one with rebels, one with Col and his army, one with the hunt for her missing sister, one with who she is and what she’s supposed to do. True Westerfeld style....Lots of action-packed scenes leave the reader wondering what’s coming next. Great read for those who enjoyed its sister series, Uglies. Can’t wait for the next one to come out — because obviously there’s s next one! Yay!!

    I was so fortunate to get an ARC of this book at BookCon2019!! Meeting Scott Westerfeld was so great!! I was just meh about Imposters, so I was hoping this book would pick up with the depth of storytelling and twists that I remembered from my first read through of the Uglies series. This book delivered what Imposters did not. It brought back my nostalgia but told an entirely new narrative in the world I loved. I adore the Frey/Rafi relationship. I appreciate that a family connection is the prima I was so fortunate to get an ARC of this book at BookCon2019!! Meeting Scott Westerfeld was so great!!

I appreciate that a family connection is the primary focus as opposed to romantic interest. The city of Paz was so fun to be immersed in, and the concept of Feels added a fun new tech to the world. Also non-binary representation continues!! I don't think anything will live up to the original Uglies series, but this book came pretty darn close.

    I was lucky enough to get access to an ARC through my internship, and I'm very glad I did! All the world building in Imposters did not go to waste and I was excited to see more of it in Shatter City. Both Rafia and Frey gained substantially more depth of character and the interactions between all of the characters became more complex. The mix of action and character development was perfect. If you liked Imposters you'll love Shatter City - fans of Six of Crows and Aurora Rising should give this I was lucky enough to get access to an ARC through my internship, and I'm very glad I did!

    I have been a fan of Scott Westerfield’s writing since I read UGLIES for the first time. The world he has created through these two series is intricate and fascinating. Every time I read one of the books I am fully immersed. SHATTER CITY is the sequel to IMPOSTERS, and I found that it surpassed it as far as narrative goes. The subplots are woven in seamlessly with the major conflict, and all of the characters, as well as the world itself, become more fully fleshed out and developed than they wer I have been a fan of Scott Westerfield’s writing since I read UGLIES for the first time.

The subplots are woven in seamlessly with the major conflict, and all of the characters, as well as the world itself, become more fully fleshed out and developed than they were in IMPOSTERS. The book manages to deal with some serious topics without being too overbearing, even touching on addiction (if that’s not too spoiler-y). As always, I enjoyed reading this and cannot wait to see what happens next.
