Maggie Hall indulges her obsession with distant lands and far-flung adventures as often as she can. She has played with baby tigers in Thailand, learned to make homemade pasta in Italy, and taken thousands of miles of trains through the vibrant countryside of India. In her past life, she was a bookstore events coordinator and marketing manager, and when she's not on the other side of the world, she lives with her husband and their cats in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where she watches USC football, dabbles in graphic design, and blogs about young adult literature for YA Misfits.Visualizza tutta la Descrizione prodotto

The Conspiracy of Us spins us a tale of one girl caught up in the tantalizing what if, where the world is controlled by those who hold the puppet strings behind the world leaders and politics, one that harkens back to Alexander the Great. (cue the mini-shriek from my ancient history loving self. And it is something I had never heard of, refreshing to read about compared to the more prevalent historical tangents that have been used too often in books.)
First and foremost, the conspiracy. Avery is introduced to the all-powerful Circle of Twelve, a set of twelve families that control everything, or at the very least, hold the strings to do anything with the world. Bloodlines that run back eons, to the ancient times of elaborate tombs and whatnot. The same families that believe Avery is a very deadly piece in the chess game of world power.
Getting caught up in the whirlwind of Avery's quest to discover just what she is a part of was an exhilarating ride. Seeing Paris and Istanbul was another bonus, and I loved reading about the cities. And of course, meeting the equally charming and deadly members of the Circle as well as mysterious foes completed the merry adventure.
As the blurb suggests, there is the simmering question of a love triangle. We're introduced to two swoon-worthy boys, as far as looks go. Thankfully, they're both vastly different from each other, and we're not thrown into a pseudo-argument between them about Avery. That's not to say that there isn't any biting banter, because who doesn't enjoy subtle subtext behind pleasant politeness. (Excuse the alliteration, I wanted to feel fancy.) Both present interesting pieces to the puzzle that encompasses the book. I have a fondness for one over the other, since objectivity is something I have never quite mastered, but both are rather appealing, in case you must know.
Maggie has an effortless way with words that is both beautiful and easy-to-read, simply delectable.
"If it was, it was a shade of toshka. A craving for something you couldn't possibly understand. A craving I was finally letting myself feel, only to wish I hadn't."
While it's not a perfect book, because there were certain instances of things that maybe should have stretched believable limits for some, but overall this book was an adventure that touched my particular tastes, and I adored it. And, the ending scene was brilliant, the way things fold together—I cannot wait to see where Maggie takes us in the second book.
This story is about a girl named Avery who has moved so many times she has come up with a plan she calls The Plan (catchy right ;)) If she doesn't let anyone in then she won't get hurt when they have to move again for her mom's work. This works fine until she meets Jack, the new kid. He may be the only person who really gets what she's going through. But when he tells her that he had information about her father, she jumps at the chance. She goes on so many adventures, through so many continents in two weeks than most people go through in their lifetimes.
I really liked Avery's character. She had just the right amount of spunk and wits that made her more than just a pretty face, sadly like a lot of other female protagonists. She was smart and could handle herself around the twists and turns that her adventure brought. I don't know about you but that's something I look for in a main character.
Jack and Stellan. What is their to say about Jack and Stellan? Stellan is this gorgeous boy she meets at her prom, and he definitely wasn't supposed to be there. She honestly doesn't know what to do around him, and to be honest neither would I. Next is Jack. He is the boy she meets at her school, but he has some hidden secrets and she doesn't know if she can completely trust him. With his gray eyes and espresso colored hair, he is a knock out and her whole school thinks so.
Things are changing in Avery's life faster than she could ever imagine. I would totally recommend this book. It was great!!!
Avery was a great MC--I loved watching her grow and eventually open up; Stellan was a handsome mystery; and Jack… *sighs.* He’s hot with a British accent, that’s all I need to say. Luc was also one of my favourites and I hope we get to see more of him in the next book.
And love triangle? Pfff, no way. There was one clear-cut romance and it was ohhh so swoon-worthy *dies.*
This is an impressive debut for Hall, and I can’t wait to get my hands on book 2!
In addition to the story overall, Maggie Hall is an author to watch. This debut is unlike anything I have read currently in YA books, and she bridges a lot of gaps. She is an author who isn't afraid to let her plot be the most important part of the story, and still writes romance and everything else most of us love to read.
