What I Have To Say 

I am loving Cia's development. As her time at University goes on, she is getting more and more badass, really starting to do well at the tougher aspects of her studies. But she hasn't lost any of the kindness that sets her apart from the other students. She just wants to look after everyone, even if they don't do the same for her and I think that's her best quality. Though it does tear her apart when she can't. 

So, University is pretty cool. It was hard to think that things could get more brutal after the Testing,  but obviously they can. I really like what's said about politics too. Cis and the others are being pushed into Goverment because the people best suited to being in charge are those who don't want to be. It's an interesting way of solving the problem of power hungry maniacs getting to be in charge. 

I really, really cannot wait for the third book, even if it means saying goodbye to Cia. I want to see if she makes a difference. I just want to find out the ending.
