When I read the synopsis for this book I thought that it was going to be fast-paced and full of action but I was left disappointed when I discovered that it was neither of these things. For the majority of the book, I was really confused and didn’t know what was happening. At times I thought I was reading a sequel as things weren’t explained and characters were introduced that we were expected to already know. I felt that there was little character development and as a result, I didn’t feel attached to any of the characters. There was a large cast of characters in this book which got confusing as it was difficult to remember who was who. I was really disappointed as I was expecting to really enjoy this series but I will not be carrying on with it. A lot of people really enjoy Ally Carter’s books and I thought I would like them too. I have her other series; The Gallagher Girls which I will be trying to see if I like them any more than this series.
