Cover Thoughts: I guess it’s very teenage yet based on the cover I don’t know if I would have picked it up.
Inside every secret, there’s a world of trouble. Get ready for the second book in this new series of global proportions–from master of intrigue, New York Times bestselling author Ally Carter.
Grace’s past has come back to hunt her . . . and if she doesn’t stop it, Grace isn’t the only one who will get hurt. Because on Embassy Row, the countries of the world stand like dominoes, and one wrong move can make them all fall down.
The twists get twistier and the turns get even more shocking in the second thrilling installment of Embassy Row.
Whoa…what???? Seriously? SO COOL!
This series or trilogy is so much fun!!!! I absolutely love the idea and these kids or teenagers getting all involved using their own talents and gifts and even connections to help solve the latest mystery. I am enjoying a LOT of aspects about this book and I really can’t wait for book three which comes out December 27th of this year, YAY!
I did have a few issues with it, but it was mostly just little irritations. For one, there’s the trope of big-brothers -BFF-can’t-like-little-sister thing which I usually like because I like that kind of tension but it got a little crazy her.
Then there’s the overprotective-big-brother trope. Which again was sweet but almost unrealistic, I have 4 brothers and we all get along great but none of them are this crazy overprotective that it’s almost like overbearing. I mean really doesn’t this girl have a mind and will of her own? Sheesh. Silly boys…
Also Grace’s pity-party got a little ridiculous, granted she had every right to be and I tried to be sympathetic but I just found myself a little irritated and I wanted to shake her or slap her so we could move on with the story. or maybe I am just heartless….Could be that but come on it’s a story…
Anyway there was a great deal to like about this story though. The parties, the feelings, espionage, unwilling partnerships, mystery, murder, treasure hunting, I mean come on, who wouldn’t like this type of story and I found myself completely enjoying that aspect of it.
