Impostors (Impostors, #1)

Frey and Rafi are inseparable . . . but very few people have ever seen them together. This is because Frey is Rafi’s double, raised in the shadows of their rich father’s fortress. While Rafi has been taught to charm, Frey has been taught to kill. Frey only exists to protect her sister. There is no other part of her life. Frey has never been out in the world on her own – until her father sends her in Rafi’s place to act as collateral for a...

    You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight 4.5*Confession time! I didn't love the  Uglies series . I just didn't. I liked the first book, but by the end? I legit one-starred the 4th book, honestly just out of severe boredom. So to say I was skeptical of Impostors is putting it mildly. It was mostly curiousity that led me to pick up the copy that showed up on my doorstep. An...

    3.5 starsThis book was a fast-paced, page turner of a read from the start all the way through to the finish. Personally, I feel that this book may have received a higher rating from me if I would have reread the whole "Uglies" series prior to reading this new installment. I think it may have changed my overall reading experience to refresh myself of the original story, as well as remind myself of what exactly is different within the Ugly universe...

    5 Words: Family, power, control, betrayal, revenge.Book Review: Impostors by Scott WesterfeldWhen I heard about this book I was so excited - I loved the Uglies books growing up. I loved the twisted world, the acerbic take-down of societal conceptions of beauty. And now I'm back in the same world watching a similar take-down of the people in power. and it's excellent.I loved the changes in the characters, how the Frey from the first page isn't the...

    I preordered this book in APRIL. That's how excited I was. Unfortunately, when I got it, I was really worried about not liking it, since I loved the original Uglies series so much, but THIS DIDN'T DISAPPOINT, THANK YOU SCOTT WESTERFELD. I'm gonna get kinda fangirl-y in this review, and I haven't reviewed a book thoroughly in a while.First off, I loved the characters. It took a little longer to get used to them, especially since they weren't Tally...
  • Amanda (MetalPhantasmReads)
    **NOTE: Don't start with this book if you haven't read this series yet. I recommend reading the original trilogy, since there are some references to the original books and it does take place after SPECIALS.**Review is up on my blog now linked here!https://metalphantasmreads.wordpress....But this was super disappointing for a new series installment! The action was too "stop and go" for me while never feeling intense or that there were any high sta...

    I've been a huge Uglies fan since I was a kid, so when this book was announced I was equal parts excited and nervous. I was worried that one of my favorite series would be ruined by an unnecessary addition--but this book turned out fantastic.Impostors could stand alone apart from the Uglies series, but fans will be delighted to see a bunch of Easter eggs that hearken back to the original series. There was just enough to keep an old fan like mysel...

    4.5 stars.Love me a twisty scifi from an old fave!

    I was pretty surprised when Westerfeld announced that there would be not only this extension to the Uglies series, but that it would be the first of a new four-part sequel/spinoff series. It's for sure the best book Westerfeld wrote in this universe since the original - especially since Specials and especially Extras played out increasingly nonsensically and weirdly, though I'm sure I'd appreciate them better on a second read.As for this first of...
  • Rayna
    This is the first Westerfeld novel I’ve ever read and it is 100% a 5/5 read for me.
  • Justine
    3.5 starsI admit to being a tiny bit sceptical before reading this, as I didn't love The Darkest Legacy, another book returning to a series and set 10 years later, but Impostors managed to do this successfully.Part of that success lies in the fact that instead of returning to characters introduced in the previous books, it begins the start of a whole new story with all new characters. Oh sure there are a few plot holes, and the characters are pre...

    You can also find my review here:https://devouringbooks2017.wordpress....Impostors is the first book in a new spin off series set in the same world as the Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld. This book follows Frey, the secret twin sister and body double to Rafia, who is the heir to the first family in charge of the city Shreve. Frey’s father send a her instead of Rafia as a hostage to a rival city as the two cities negotiate a trade deal. Frey c...

    4/5For all you people in the back, can I get an INSTA-LOVE?Okay enough shenanigans the book was super good and I loved being back in the uglies world. I didn’t know how much I missed the phrase ‘crash bracelets’ until I read this. It was super instalovey but hey UGLIES. Also them Tally references ooooooft. Not to toot my own horn but I finished this in 3 hours, I am a living legend. It was almost too fast paced in some aspects but hey she...

    **Thank you to Book Expo and Scholastic Press for making this advanced reading copy available to my friend, Sarah... and thank you Sarah for letting me read it first! This short review was not influenced at all by any of the above!**I gave up on the Uglies series at the beginning of Book 3 ("The Specials") because I grew bored. I'm glad that I didn't know this was a continuation of that series before I started to read "Imposters" because I probab...

    This was a quick, exciting read. Great characters and a fast moving plot. I couldn’t put it down.

    This is the second book I have read from this author. When I first saw this book I wanted to read it. Thus I was very excited when I got the chance to pick up a copy of this book. Frey and Rafi could not be more different. However, they are bonded by the fact that they are twins. Frey really is the star of this book. She does not belong in the royal world; thus the reason that she was discovered fairly quickly. She is better as an assassin. Rafi ...

    The original Uglies series was what really got me into reading YA, and I can say with all honesty that I think Scott Westerfeld is a YA-writing genius! I started this book on Saturday night & finished it slightly before 2am on Sunday morning. I’m sick & *so* tired, but I just literally could not put this book down. I’m loving that Westerfeld is writing again in the world of Uglies, and this new storyline has me absolutely (and obviously) hook...

    So excited about the continuation of this series. Loved this book and can't wait to see where things go!

    This is the first book by Scott Westerfield and OMG! I loved this so much! This kicked off straight away and I couldn't put it down. Plus such a cliffhanger ending. Bonus helped me with my book slump!! Finally picked up something that I just loved!!

    I received this advanced readers copy from my library director, who scored it at Book Expo America.Rafi and Frey are the president's twin daughters, but the public only knows about Rafi. Frey has been trained to protect Rafi her whole life. Rafi is only allowed to appear in public during heavily secured events, while Frey poses as Rafi when there is any possibility of an assassination attempt. But now their father wants Frey to pose as Rafi while...
