Double Crossed: A Spies and Thieves Story by Ally Carter (Novella)
Release: January 22, 2013
My Rating: 5/5 stars
Synopsis from Goodreads:
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.
Oh. No. This novella was like a drop of water after being in the desert; feels oh so great but now all I want is more.
I love both of Ally Carter’s series and this integration was everything I never knew I wanted and I’m so hoping she continues!
This little snippet, quick heist, featuring Hale and Macey was just totally perfect. The two make a surprisingly awesome team and their banter was wonderful. And man oh man I don’t know how Ally Carter thinks up the hows and whys of the situations she writes. I always try to guess what is happening, and I never can and am always surprised. Bonus: HALE/KAT CUTENESS!
One tiny thing: I wish there had been more Cammie. I mean, could you imagine Kat and Cammie meeting? EPIC ADVENTURES! Either way, Double Crossed is a great addition to both the Gallagher Girls series and Heist Society.
