The first move is hers...

The Blackcoat Rebellion

Book 1

Author of The Goddess Test novels

A single test determined her entire future...until she was given a way out

Kitty Doe had one chance to prove she could be worthwhile to society. Instead, she walked out of her ranking test as a complete failure, with a permanent "III" tattooed on the back of her neck. At seventeen, she's facing a lifetime of cleaning sewers...and being separated from Benjy, the boy she's loved for as long as she can remember.

So when Kitty is offered a chance to escape her fate, it seems like an easy choice. If she says yes, Kitty will be Masked--surgically transformed into Lila Hart, the Prime Minister's niece, who died under mysterious circumstances. As a member of the Hart family--a VII--she will be famous. And for the first time, she will matter.

There's only one catch. She must also stop the rebellion that Lila secretly fostered, the same one that got her killed...and one Kitty believes in. Faced with threats, conspiracies and a life that's not her own, she must learn how to become more than a pawn in a twisted game she's only just beginning to understand.

"Carter has created an engaging heroine to root for in Kitty and a page-turner full of twists and turns." --Booklist

"The actions and plot twists will keep readers satisfied and waiting for more in the series." --School Library Journal

Nice plot. Some surprising twist and turns. The things I liked about this book were the risks, high-stakes, plots, and scheming. I would recommend this book.

This book caught my eye for two reasons. One would be the intricately designed cover, with the mysterious eye and maze. the second would be the author, whom I recognized as the writer of The Goddess Test Series that has always been in my top picks for books. But unfortunately, I would say that the first book of this series is better written than the two following it. The idea behind this book was genuinely captivating, but I felt that afterward the plot did not pick up the pace later on into the series. Nonetheless, this book was very intense to read, with all the suspense, mystery, and romance bits entangled together. The story of Kitty Doe in her dystopian world was definitely creative, so why not give this book a try? 5/5 - @Siri of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Imagine you have no family, you have a dead end job and your are offered a prosperous government job, a home and food for your life, the only catch, you can never tell your secret and you must never see your friends again. What would you do?

A very interesting read with lots of plot twists.

Poor little pawn, just wanted to be a galaxy fighter and for people to pay attention and listen. Poor poor little pawn.

This book was really good, but there were some let downs. I have to say that I felt like Kitty and Knox would have been a cute couple, but I think that's just me. I almost instantly lost interest in the second book. I don't know why, but it just...was a little draggy. I still recommend them if you like dystopian books. Also, I would the "hunting trip" so disturbing, I probably would have quit if I wasn't so hooked and had purchased a copy.

I disliked this book. It named people, places, and things and didn't describe them so I had no idea what they were.

Wildly unbelievable, but entertaining nonetheless. Kitty Doe displays a very unnatural loyalty to the dysfunctional Harts.
