Blurb:
After being on the run, Ariane Tucker finds herself back where she started—under the cruel control of Dr. Jacobs, head of the research facility that created her. Now she must participate in the upcoming trials; a deadly competition pitting her against other alien hybrids, each representing a rival corporation.

But Ariane is no one’s weapon. She is prepared to die if it means taking down those involved in Project Paper Doll. They destroyed all that she holds dear, including Zane Bradshaw, the one person she trusted and cared for the most—the person she was forced to leave behind, bleeding and alone.

As her plan takes shape Ariane will need to depend on, now more than ever, the other side of her heritage—the cold, calculated instincts born from her alien DNA. With Zane gone she has nothing left to lose.

With heart-pounding action, and plenty of surprises, the gripping conclusion to Stacey Kade's Project Paper Doll series delivers a powerful finish that will keep fans hooked to the very end.
Reese's Reviews:
Holy moly I can’t believe the final book for this amazing trilogy is finally here and I read it! Oh my goodness it’s over and it was such an amazing ride.

Arianne has become one of my ultimate favorite female characters of all time. She’s half-alien half-human with a whole nerd personality who also kicks major government and bully butt. Seriously they don’t come much cooler than this amazing chick.

Arianne has lost everything is her fight to stay alive and just be a normal girl. Now Arianne has lost her first and only friend Zane. Now she’s back in her prison and preparing for The Trials Dr. Jacob and his rivals have created for them. Arianne doesn’t plan on playing their game though and despite all the dark things she’s had to do since she’s been captured she knows to stop Project Paper Doll she has to destroy it.

Now I don’t want to give too much away but I will say we get an awesome ending for this series.

Arianne is honestly such an amazing character and we get to see the full depths of her powers and skills. While we got glimpses of Arianne’s gifts and talents in the first two books, Arianne has taken the reins off her gifts and we get to see the depths of her powers. Seriously she is a badass.

I enjoyed this book so much and while I am a little heartbroken over this fantastic series ending I couldn’t have hoped for a better ending. This series started out as a anti-bullying book and turned into a young girl who overcame all of that. It doesn’t get better than that.

This series was the first taste of Stacey Kades writing and I am now definitely a fan. Her characters are charming and realistic. He writing has amazing flow and I honestly just fly through her books.

So if you love YA books, aliens, anti-bullying stories, quirky nerdy characters and hottie swoony nerdy boys with abs you will need to get on this series. Fans of the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout will definitely want to get all over this series. If you’ve liked other books I’ve read then you want to read this series.
