Review: AMONG THE BETRAYED by Margaret Peterson Haddix


Rating: 4/5 stars

Unlike the first two books that follow Luke's story, Among the Betrayed follows Nina, who was a minor character in Among the Impostors

I’ve noticed that the titles of the books kind of foreshadow something about that book. In Among the Hidden, Luke was hidden and was with another girl who was also to remain hidden. In Among the Impostors, Luke was with others who were impostors (third children with fake IDs) like him. And now in Among the Betrayed, Nina is with others who are betrayed. It’s a theme, and it has me speculating about the direction the series will take based on later book titles. 

Nina is given the opportunity to spy for the population police in this story. Forced into it is more like it because she can either spy, or die. It was interesting following her instead of Luke, knowing Luke is still out there somewhere doing his own thing. 

I’m glad Nina’s storyline intersected with Luke’s storyline in the end. (This isn’t really a spoiler because it was obvious and implied this was going to happen in the beginning.)

I can’t wait to read more of this series!
