Series: Slated Book Three
Author: Teri Terry
Publication Date: March 6, 2014 (UK)

The riveting finale of the Slated trilogy!
A thought-provoking psychological thriller set in a disturbingly plausible future where the government and its enemies compete to control the minds of the young

Kyla is in danger from both the government Lorders who erased her memory and the terrorists who tried to use her. So now she’s on the run. Sporting a new identity and desperate to fill in the blank spaces of her life pre-Slating, Kyla heads to a remote mountain town to try to reunite with the birth mother she was kidnapped from as a child. There she is hoping all the pieces of her life will come together and she can finally take charge of her own future. But even in the idyllic wilderness and the heart of her original family, Kyla realizes there is no escape from the oppressive Lorders. Someone close to her may be one of them, and even more frighteningly, her birth mother has been keeping secrets of her own.

In this stunning series finale, Kyla finally finds out who she really is, and the road to this discovery, and to deciding who she wants to become, is full of dangerous twists and turns that will keep readers riveted.

My Thoughts

*Spoilers for Book 1 and 2*

I'm a tad disappointed at how this book went down. Slated and Fractured showed so much promise that I was salivating at the chance to finally read Shattered and seeing that promise fulfilled, but unfortunately, that's not what happened.

This trilogy could have been truly amazing, but it just fell short of that. I had been cutting Kyla some slack cause she was too jumbled up with all her different identities, but she had straitened out for the most part here and she still ended up doing some stuff where I just face palmed and mostly all in regards to Ben. Yes, to my utter dismay, Ben was back. I didn't like him in the first two books, and I liked him even less in this one. But my problem with him in this one was Kyla's response to him. (view spoiler) *takes deep breath* Anyway!

My other major issue was all the little coincidences that started adding up. Always being at the right place at the right time. Sometimes even going places just cause and stumbling into something huge. Reinforcements showing up at the exact time. And the resolution?! Omg, can you say anticlimactic? (view spoiler)

I did like how all the main points started adding up at the end to form the big picture. I just didn't like how Terry got there. It felt cheap to me. I felt deprived.

If you have been keeping up with this trilogy then you should obviously finish it, just don't go in expecting major fireworks.


Would I Recommend it?
