Publisher's Summary

"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.

Dull plot & frustrating protagonist

The main character's motivations by the final novel make no sense. She doesn't ever grow or evolve her thinking. Spends each book just wanting things to be the same even after each major change. Stay ugly, now stay pretty, now stay special. Stubborn and complacent. Easily casts away old relationships in favor of new ones. Overall frustrating lead to follow.

progressively worse...

Ugh! This series starred off interesting but each book has gotten worse. This one is hardly worth reading. I feel like the only way one could really like this series is if they haven't read a lot of books. Of all the books I've read/listened to this series is not my new favorite.
