The green eyes that have fascinated her, no longer gleam with recognition. Now Missy must find a way to not only get them out alive, but to save the mind of the man who is quickly capturing her heart. And she must do it all without getting caught. Put to the test, will Missy be able to rise above her fears and find love, or watch it all blow up in smoke?

5 Stars

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawh man seriously, Janelle? Seriously? You just couldn’t resist ending with a cliffhanger again, could you? I will not forgive you for this, I wanted to know how it all ended and all I got was more questions, more action and more intrigue!!!

Okay, so those things are still good, but I was so looking forward to a conclusion and now I realize I will have to wait much longer to read when they finally kill that bastard Douglas.

All right, that part of my rant is over, now unto Tested itself.

In Tested it’s almost all about Missy. At the end of Masked Tyler was taken by some of the General’s goons. And when the group of rebels find out where they’re keeping him, it’s shy and scared little Missy, who needs to go undercover into the institute Douglas uses to make his “super-humans”. As Missy overcomes her fear of men and stepping outside in the world again, she faces more problems at the institute, with Tyler drugged up with those special “treatments” and not even recognising her. She must find a way to make him remember and help him escape and get back to their friends and family safely. Of course that’s easier said then done.

I loved the story of Missy and Tyler this time. Missy is scarred from being raped by soldiers. She’s very shy and timid, but she also has this hidden fire, we get to see in the last 30% or so of the book. And she’s just overal cute and great character. As for Tyler, well when I imagine his Scottish accent, I just swoon. Yes, Scottish accents make me swoon, it doesn’t help that Janelle’s descriptions of him, make him one very attractive man (in my mind anyway). He’s also a great fighter and he can be so gentle and kind.

Gah, I need to stop otherwise I’ll blab the whole thing and that’s not what I’m supposed to do. Anyway, I loved this book, definitely another 5 STARS for Janelle Stalder and now I am impatiently waiting for the next installment in the New World series.
