Only Ellyssa isn't perfect.
Ellyssa feels emotions--a fact she's spent her life concealing. Until she encounters the epitome of inferiority: a dark-haired boy raised among renegades hiding since the Nazis won the war a century ago. He speaks to her telepathically, pushing thoughts into her mind, despite the impossibility of such a substandard person having psychic abilities.
But he does.
His unspoken words and visions of a place she's never visited make Ellyssa question her creator. Confused and afraid her secret will be discovered, Ellyssa runs away, embarking on a journey where she discovers there is more to her than perfection.
5 of 5 Rein and Ellyssa
Perfection is one of those books that takes you by surprise. I have to say that I was totally blown away by this book. I loved the world as it was represented and the characters were solid. I have read a lot of books and none have come close to the uniqueness that this one brought. Imagine this a world of pure aryans where there are soldiers that are pure made to do what they are programmed to do with no questions asked just simply do.
Welcome to Ellyssa's world. Her father and creator has created a perfect soldier to do his bidding. She has had strict training and guidance by her father and does as she is told. She is engineered to be her fathers perfect little soldier or so he thinks. See Ellyssa is hiding a secret from everyone. See she is engineered to be strong, intelligent, unemotional, and telepathic but the one thing she is not to be she is and she hides it well until she meets a renegade who is telepathic and knows her secret.
When Ellyssa meets Rein he tells her telepathically that he knows of a better world and life but can she trust him? After all he is a renegade and she does not know him. So she does the one thing she should not have done she let's Rein into head and he can see and hear everything. Confused Ellyssa is not sure what to believe or who to believe. Will she trust Rein and run or will she hide her secret and take her chances with her father? This is a must read for all!
