Author: Kate Jarvik Birch
Series: Perfected #2
Ella's story continues with her now being in Canada and thousands of miles away from Penn. Pets all over the US are killed and it all started when Ella abandoned her evil and abusive master. It's a natural and human reaction that she feels responsible for all these deaths and she believes it's time to put an end to it.
In Tarnished, Ella grows up. She may still be a little bit insecure and naive about how the world works but she's willing to sacrifice everything in order to make sure that her friends, loved ones and girls like her, finally get the life they deserve.
The story's pace was a little bit slow but the ending totally made up for it!
Tarnished is the best possible addition to the Perfected series. With her carefully written sequel, Kate Jarvik Birch talks about extremely sensitive issues such as the right to freedom, bioethics and trafficking. These are things we don't usually come across when we read YA books and this was a welcome change.
