Just one review for today.
Uncommon Criminals by Ally Carter
Uncommon Criminals offers up another adventure for teenage
catKat burglar Katarina Bishop and her band of loyal followers. Fans of the first book in the series, the excellently titled Heist Society will not be disappointed in this sequel. If anything, Ally Carter has made the second book better than the first. This time around, Kat isn’t after stolen paintings: she’s after a jewel that’s supposed to be cursed. But this time things get personal as we delve further into the network of criminal families when Kat is double-crossed and we learn some interesting info about Kat’s uncle Eddie. As with Heist Society, my only complaint is that it could have been a bit longer.
A sequel that will leave you wanting more – and fear not! The third book is due out next year!
