I’m back home! I needed to finish the Flawed series, so I picked Perfect up as soon as I reached home, and finished it off in a couple of hours. And it totally lived up to my expectations!
If you haven’t read Perfect yet, here’s the review.
Author: Cecelia Ahern
Genre: Young Adult
Page count: 428
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Celestine North is Flawed.
Ever since Judge Crevan declared her the number one threat to the public, she has been a ghost, on the run with Carrick, the only person she can trust.
But Celestine has a secret—one that could bring the entire Flawed system crumbling to the ground. A secret that has already caused countless people to go missing.
Judge Crevan is gaining the upper hand, and time is running out for Celestine. With tensions building, Celestine must make a choice: save just herself or risk her life to save all Flawed people.
I know one thing for sure: Celestine is brave. She survives multiple brandings, extreme humiliation, has to live in hiding, and she’s still a leader. How are fictional protagonists so superhuman?
Flawed introduced Crevan as a biased judge. Perfect portrays him as a corrupt, scheming, and inevitably flawed man. He tries everything, from regular raids, to a shaming parade to bring Celestine down. He’s a defeated man, grasping at straws to continue living his life with whatever power he might have left.
And the secret. The weapon that will bring not only Crevan, but also the Guild, down. The secret whose location not even Celestine knows. The search for the weapon is a dangerous and exciting one. Dodging Crevan and his Whistleblowers, finding someplace to hide and trying to find the weapon is something only Celestine North could do.
Let’s not forget Carrick Vane. He’s an equally important part of this story. He’s the one who’s always there to solve any problem that comes up, face any situation, and he always, always has Celestine’s back. I think he’s a bit too perfect, actually. He’s also the guy with a mysterious past, which makes it even better. It really helps in putting together prices of the puzzle to make the story move forward.
P.S. I totally ship Celestine and Carrick! Yay!!!!!
This book is a wonderful read, and just as brilliant as Flawed. Happy reading!
