For the past two months, Kitty Doe's life has been a lie. Forced to impersonate Lila Hart, the Prime Minister's niece, in a hostile meritocracy on the verge of revolution, Kitty sees her frustration grow as her trust in her fake fiancé cracks, her real boyfriend is forbidden and the Blackcoat rebels she is secretly supporting keep her in the dark more than ever.
But in the midst of discovering that her role in the Hart family may not be as coincidental as she thought, she's accused of treason and is forced to face her greatest fear: Elsewhere. A prison where no one can escape.
As one shocking revelation leads to the next, Kitty learns the hard way that she can trust no one, not even the people she thought were on her side. With her back against the wall, Kitty wants to believe she'll do whatever it takes to support the rebellion she believes in—but is she prepared to pay the ultimate price?
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Kitty finds herself in hot water when she betrays Knox’s trust and ends up sent Elsewhere.
Can she ever hope to escape now?
I had issues with the first book in this series, but I actually liked this one better.
Kitty still was no brain scientist in this book, and she was certainly easily fooled, but I still liked her more in this book than the first. She could have done with making better plans, and maybe thinking twice before doing things, but she wasn’t quite as irritating as she was in the first book.
The storyline in this was good, and the body count went up and up! Funnily enough this actually livened things up a bit, and it was nice not knowing who was going to die next!
There was some romance, and once again Kitty was easily fooled with regards to this too.
The ending to this was okay, but it was clear that the story isn’t over. I’m actually quite excited to find out what happens next!
Overall; good dystopian sequel,
