Deception. Risk. Betrayal. Redemption. Master storyteller Scott Westerfeld is at the top of his game, and back to his most famous realm.

Frey and Rafi are inseparable…. two edges of the same knife. But Frey’s very existence is a secret. Frey is Rafi’s twin sister – and her body double. Their powerful father has many enemies, and the world has grown dangerous as the old order falls apart. So while Rafi was raised to be the perfect daughter, Frey has been taught to kill. Her only purpose is to protect her sister, to sacrifice herself for Rafi if she must.

When her father sends Frey in Rafi’s place as collateral in a precarious deal, she becomes the perfect impostor – as poised and charming as her sister. But Col, the son of a rival leader, is getting close enough to spot the killer inside her. As the deal starts to crumble, Frey must decide if she can trust him with the truth… and if she can risk becoming her own person.

With Impostors, master storyteller Scott Westerfeld returns with a new series set in the world of his mega-bestselling Uglies – a world full of twist and turns, rebellion and intrigue, where any wrong step could be Frey’s last


I’m going to be very blunt, Westerfield promised four new books that would be set within the Uglies world. This is a spin off series that I believe could have been left aside.

I was not a fan of. I was not fan of the predictability and the similarities to his Uglies series. I know your probably thinking of course there would be a similarities it set in the same fictional dystopian society. Well that part I’m fine with, what I didn’t like was that it seemed like the same plot with a new cast. and that is a no bueno in my book.

Now you thinking but if it’s that bad why not give it one star. It had one redeeming quality,  and that was Frey and her hidden life.

This journey with this series has come to a halt.
