Gr 10 Up—Kitty, whose low-caste status prevented her from bettering herself socially or financially, was given a way out of her life of prostitution when she agreed to be surgically transformed into the deceased niece of evil Prime Minister Daxston Hart. But with exciting new opportunities came grave dangers. In this next installment, Kitty is further entrenched in the lies that dictate her new life and she winds up accused of treason. The scenes at Elsewhere, an inescapable prison, are intense and unflinching. The plot twists and turns, with red herrings and a dynamic pace that will keep readers guessing. With even more political maneuvering, suspense, and romance, fans of the first book will not be disappointed.
In this sequel to Pawn, Kitty continues to masquerade as politician-turned-rebel Lila Hart, but she is quickly exiled to the cruel and deadly prison camp called Elsewhere. As Carter unleashes exciting plot twists, double agents, and back-from-the-dead resurrections--usually to save Kitty from her own impetuousness--the pileup of corpses, secrets, and horrors overpowers character development in this dystopian thriller.
