After sitting half-read for months, I'm officially giving up on it. Jul 12, Jonel rated it really liked it. Intrigue and subterfuge take a stand in a big way amongst the increased action and drama that she brings forth. The real scientific and political possibilities surrounding the concepts behind this novel are just chilling and add to the overall forward motion of the tale. I appreciate the fact that although each character, regardless of age, race, or ethnicity, has grown throughout the series, no one has miraculously become an entirely new person.
It adds an extra measure of consistency to this very intriguing tale.

She wraps up all events from the past 3 books and gives everyone a sense of conclusion and purpose. That said, she also leaves an opening for more adventures from these characters, so one can only hope. Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.

But the unleashed? I must say, not that much. The unleashed, i dont know how, makes me kinda lost interest with the series. It all begin with the appearance of Mina's mom, Anna. She suddenly comes and claimed she loves Mina very much and all. Oh she was faked alright.
I dont like her a bit.
But i really cannot understand why Mina trust her so blindly? All of sudden, Mina b I got a copy in exchange for a honest review.
About A Blemished Perfection
All of sudden, Mina became so childish, silly and lost her all common sense. She even hates her father, the one who raised her all along. Well if only she knows better, the story would unfold better.
And then there's Daniel, a little thing that bothered me is he got a vision from the beginning, and he knew his vision always right, then why not tell everyone earlier? Well, this novel could have been better i guess. But it maybe just me. Well Mina and Daniel has to act that way to reach the ending. But i cant help feeling so bored reading this. A fantastic conclusion to this action-packed dystopian story, where war is waged and emotions are high.
I liked the way the chapters were divided so that other voices were heard as well as Mina's, which gave greater depth to this final installment and helped move the story and explain motives. Secrets are revealed, characters are seen as complex and realistic Of course, some are more likeable than others, but the author's skill shines in how each character A fantastic conclusion to this action-packed dystopian story, where war is waged and emotions are high. Of course, some are more likeable than others, but the author's skill shines in how each character is portrayed, flaws and all. A thought-provoking idea, with many issues raised to do with what it is to be human and that perfection is not the answer to happiness.
Brilliantly told. Highly recommended. Aug 14, Laura rated it liked it. Also, the attitudes that everyone had during this book were just depressing and not in the compassionate way, they were always whining about something and somehow they always escaped death by some miraculous way. I liked the epilogue though Apr 14, Shari rated it liked it. I loved the first two books of this series, but found this last one to be a little disappointing.
I would still recommend it for a fan of the series, just don't expect a stellar ending. Jan 03, Brandy rated it it was amazing.

This finale was anticlimactic. Most of the book showcases Mina being gullible, oblivious, and lacking common sense, with everyone else trying to rescue her and to stay alive in the process. Daniel for the most part was a nice POV to be in. I nod to the author for making the Scottish dialect come out so well on paper. I liked that there was a conclusion to their tale, though it was a bit 'happily ever after.
It's not to say that Unleashed or the Blemished series is bad, but I guess it just wasn't the tale for me.
She blindly trusts a woman she hasn't seen in 10 years over her friends and her father who's cared for her for most of her life. She takes everything at face value. If she stopped to think that maybe he kept the truth from her for a reason, such as to protect her, instead of just focusing on the fact that he lied to her, things would have turned out much better.
Matthew wasn't very bright either. He clearly says at one point that he tortured by the GEM for information about Mina and the Compound. Isn't that just giving the GEM what they were after all along? I'd have lost her as soon as I had gotten free - sister-in-law, mother to my niece, or not. Everyone including the reader could see how fake she was, except for Matthew and Mina apparently. As I mentioned in my review for Vanished, it seemed everyone's tempers flare so easily.
I'm not sure why everyone, and I mean everyone, has such short fuses Speaking of attitudes, the Resistance was just as bad as the GEM in their mentality. Neither one was in the right. Again the author's theme of the need for equality and justice floated along in this book as well. And when did Angela learn to load a gun? I don't remember her doing any combat in Vanished or in Blemished. Mina's dad monologue with his extended dying breath was lengthy and not surprising. Why couldn't he have just told her from the start?
I mean having telekinesis when no one else does would make me assume I wasn't normal. Why so hush-hush? And why so shocking to them all when they finally learned the truth? There were also some random bits.

Like the snake when Mina and her mother were 'picnicking. Also when Angela later thinks about a future with Cam, the thought of buying a goat and making cheese seems very out of place with the thought of having kids together and a house by the sea Also, Daniel becoming the face of the Resistance seemed a bit unbelievable. His speech wasn't even inspiring. They definitely took his words out of context, especially considering the Resistance was the ones who bombed the civilians in the first place, regardless of whether they were caught in the crossfires or not. Finally there was mention of the rest of the world.
There was only sentences in the epilogue simply stating that the world had abandoned them in their time of need. It's quite unbelievable that countries would do absolutely nothing, especially when they seem to love to get into each others' business nowadays. I've said enough.
