Macey McHenry—Glamorous society girl or spy-in-training?W.W. Hale V—Heir to an American dynasty or master thief?
There are two sides to every coin. Whether these two can work together is a tossup.
Born into privilege, Macey and Hale are experts at mingling with the upper class. But even if they’ve never raised an eyebrow at the glitz, neither teenager has ever felt at home with the glamour.
When Macey and Hale meet at a society gala, the party takes a dangerous turn. Suddenly they’re at the center of a hostage situation, and it’s up to them to stop the thugs from becoming hostile. Will Macey’s spy skills and Hale’s con-man ways be enough to outsmart a ruthless gang? Or will they have to seek out the ultimate inside girl to help?
The worlds of Heist Society and the Gallagher Girls collide in Ally Carter’s fast-paced, high-stakes and tantalizing new story. Get a behind the scenes glimpse as Ally delivers an irresistible thriller that is full of her signature style and savvy twists.- Goodreads
My opinion: All I have to say about this is that it was AMAZING! I hope that Ally Carter actually merger the two series for real. That Katarina Bishop does join that Gallagher Academy and uses her skills for the good. It was amazing to see how the two stories mixed into one. It was a good combination of characters that had similar but different skills. I loved the way that W.W. Hale V was able to spot Macey right away that she was different and that Macy was able to spot him right away as well.
The plot was also pretty cool, with safe cracking and vent crawling and fighting. It was awesome to see both W.W. Hale V and Maecy’s opinions about how Cammie and Katarina were so perfect for the same roles/abilities necessary for their current mission.
The story starts off with a glamorous party for the elite and in the process of that party a group of gunmen come and rob everyone. But is that really what they want, the jewels the guests are wearing or something in the building? The story progresses with Macey and W.W. Hale V working together to stop the robbers and protect the people. I sincerely hope that we see this mash-up once again.
Overall: 5 out of 5
