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.

"That's enough, Riley."
"No, it's not. Not nearly enough; nothing is ever said."


Holy shit. Through the first half of the book I could't help myself but wonder, how will Teri Terry wrap it all up in so little time and space? Man, I was so wrong. She's done it perfectly. SO perfectly I was speechless till the end. Well, with the occasional crying and sobbing. Cause I did cry. This is one of the best dystopian books I've ever read. And that's a fact.

Kyla. Rain. Lucy. Riley. I'll stick with Kyla. This girl, I cannot believe all that she went through and she was still standing. We can call it courage, but I will call it determination. Wow. Really, Kyla in this book was totally badass. Gone is the scared girl full of doubts and fears. In this book we are faced with a Kyla who is strong, determinated, courageous, brave, smart and still fast at running. 

I actually changed my mind about the boy.. and that doesn't happen often ;)

The writing was stunning! And so realistic. Really, I could see it in my mind. Everything, and let me tell you, it was pretty terrifying. I could feel my heart beating so fast, the adrenaline pumping through my body and the feeling was as scary as it was exhilarating! And I quite forgot how amazing it feels to look at the clock and see it 5am and not being bothered about it at all. Some thing are worth it. And Shattered definitely is!

Shattered is an amazing conclusion to an amazing trilogy! Slated was awesome, Fractured was incredible, but Shattered takes the whole serie to a whole new level. So, if you haven't yet picked this serie up, I highly suggest you to do it ASAP! It's goddamn worth it!!

I still haven't read this series, but I'm seeing a lot of positive reviews for it. Considering a fact that it's trilogy and all of the books are out, I really have no more excuses left, do I? :)
Great review, Nea.

********SPOILER ALERT************* I liked it but not the ending..... Ben was made for Kyla ♥ I admit I disliked how they turned him but in the end they were meant for each other. Then again, Aiden shouldn't have fallen in love with her, I didn't want him to get hurt! And why did Ben leave? Bringing back his memories made him bad again, WHAT?!?
