***SPOILERS AHEAD***

My Thoughts:

Ally Carter crafts a non-stop, action-packed story that keeps you guessing till the very end!

This was a wonderful sequel!

In terms of characters, the main one’s such as Alexei & Jamie, are given a more central role in this story and through Grace’s eyes we see much more development and growth to them.

In terms of plot,  Book 2 picks up right where Book 1 leaves off.

Grace continues to unravel the mystery of the secret society her mother was a part of and find the answers she is searching for.

Ally does a wonderful job at keeping facts hidden and revealing them at the perfect time, but also giving the reader hints to unravel the mystery themselves.

When Grace’s brother and friend Spence come to visit, they are completely unaware of what secrets Embassy Row has in store for them.

Because this story is from Grace’s POV, we piece together the mystery little by little, but also come to understand Grace much more!

What made this sequel so great, was the expansion of the world. In All Fall Down we are introduced to  the fictional country of Adria and in this book Ally introduces more politics and history which makes this story even more interesting.

Throughout most of this story, I was making-up theories and trying to piece this mystery together. While reading, I didn’t know who to trust!

Now to end!

As more is revealed about this secret society, Grace fears her brother is in danger!

When he gets hurt during an Adrian celebration, it is revealed that Grace is a lost princess!

I did not see that coming!

Overall everything about this book was fantastic!

Ally is a master at crafting an action-packed mystery!

I will definitely be marking my calendar for book 3!
