A fast-paced international escapade, laced with adrenaline, glamour, and romance--perfect for fans of Ally Carter
Avery West's newfound family can shut down Prada when they want to shop in peace, and can just as easily order a bombing when they want to start a war. Part of a powerful and dangerous secret society called the Circle, they believe Avery is the key to an ancient prophecy. Some want to use her as a pawn. Some want her dead.
To unravel the mystery putting her life in danger, Avery must follow a trail of clues from the monuments of Paris to the back alleys of Istanbul with two boys who work for the Circle—beautiful, volatile Stellan and mysterious, magnetic Jack. But as the clues expose a stunning conspiracy that might plunge the world into World War 3, she discovers that both boys are hiding secrets of their own. Now she will have to choose not only between freedom and family--but between the boy who might help her save the world, and the one she's falling in love with.
My Review: I've heard mixed things about this book, but I just had to try it.
So what I found was that I loved the book. The idea was a great one. The characters were done well and it was just a page turner for me.
So Avery has been everywhere. She moves a lot, so you can imagine how hard it must be for her. Always moving since she was young, new schools, losing friends, then making new friends, it just isn't an easy thing to do. Though soon its all going to change. The night of prom is here and well she doesn't want to go. But later that day she finds that she and her mom are about to move again. So if she has only two days left, she might as well go to prom.
Maybe going to prom wasn't the best idea, but in the end it turned out okay for Avery. There she is looking for the guy who asked her to prom and then you have another guy who is looking for her. Well it turns out her guy friend was there as a sort of bodyguard/spy. Then is taken to Paris by the other guy.
Strange right? Well it turns out there is this thing called the circle of twelve. They need Avery, they think she is the one, oh they may also be her family. She can get on a plane without a passport. There are hot guys, great scenes, and just awesome page turning adventure waiting to be read!
