Ešte niekoľko týždňov a... Lenže Tallyina kamarátka Shay si nie je celkom istá, či chce byť krásna. Keď utečie na utajené miesto zvané Dym, Tally spozná odvrátenú stránku sveta krásnych.

Scott Westerfeld - Specials
"Special ​Circumstances": The words have sent chills down Tally's spine since her days as a repellent, rebellious ugly. Back then Specials were a sinister rumor -- frighteningly beautiful, dangerously strong, breathtakingly fast. Ordinary pretties might live their whole lives without meeting a Special. But Tally's never been ordinary. And now she's been turned into one of them: a superamped fighting machine, engineered to keep the uglies down and the pretties stupid. The strength, the speed, and the clarity and focus of her thinking feel better than anything Tally can remember. Most of the time. One tiny corner of her heart still remembers something more. Still, it's easy to tune that out -- until Tally's offered a chance to stamp out the rebels of the New Smoke permanently. It all comes down to one last choice: listen to that tiny, faint heartbeat, or carry out the mission she's programmed to complete. Either way, Tally's world will never be the same.

Fame It's ​a few years after rebel Tally Youngblood took down the uglies/pretties/specials regime. Without those strict roles and rules, the world is in a complete cultural renaissance.

The world is like a gigantic game of American Idol. Whoever is getting the most buzz gets the most votes. Popularity rules. As if being fifteen doesn't suck enough, Aya Fuse's rank of 451,369 is so low, she's a total nobody. An extra. But Aya doesn't care; she just wants to lie low with her drone, Moggle. And maybe kick a good story for herself. Then Aya meets a clique of girls who pull crazy tricks, yet are deeply secretive of it. Aya wants desperately to kick their story, to show everyone how intensely cool the Sly Girls are. But doing so would propel her out of extra-land and into the world of fame, celebrity...and extreme danger. A world she's not prepared for.

Scott Westerfeld - Specials ​- Különlegesek
A ​Különleges Körülmények Ügyosztálya: ezektől a szavaktól Tallyt taszító, lázadó csúf napjai óta kiveri a víz. Régen a Különlegesek csupán fenyegető szóbeszédként léteztek, félelmetesen szépet, veszélyesen erőset, és lélegzetelállítóan gyorsat is jelentve. Egy hétköznapi Szép leélheti az életét úgy, hogy soha nem találkozik Különlegessel. Tally azonban sosem volt hétköznapi. Most pedig egyik napról a másikra maga is közéjük tartozik: feltuningolt harci gépezet, melynek célja, hogy a Csúfok nyugton, a Szépek pedig bután maradjanak. Az erő, a sebesség, és gondolkodásának gyorsasága és tisztasága jobb érzés, mint bármi, amire Tally vissza tud emlékezni. Általában. Azonban szívének egy aprócska csücske még mindig emlékszik valami többre. Ezt mégis könnyű elhessegetni, amíg Tallynek fel nem ajánlják a feladatot, hogy irtsa ki véglegesen Újfüstös lázadóit. Végül nincs más választása: hallgatni kénytelen arra az apró, halk szívdobbanásra, vagy véghezvinni a feladatot, melyre beprogramozták. Akárhogy dönt is, Tally világa soha többé nem lesz már a régi.
