Day 6: 7 Days of Ally Carter

Uncommon Criminals by Ally Carter
Katarina Bishop has worn a lot of labels in her short life life. Friend. Niece. Daughter. Thief. But for the last two months she’s simply been known as the girl who ran the crew that robbed the greatest museum in the world. That’s why Kat isn’t surprised when she’s asked to steal the infamous Cleopatra Emerald so it can be returned to its rightful owners.

There are only three problems. First, the gem hasn’t been seen in public in thirty years. Second, since the fall of the Egyptian empire and the suicide of Cleopatra, no one who holds the emerald keeps it for long, and in Kat’s world, history almost always repeats itself. But it’s the third problem that makes Kat’s crew the most nervous and that is simply… the emerald is cursed.

Kat might be in way over her head, but she’s not going down without a fight. After all she has her best friend—the gorgeous Hale—and the rest of her crew with her as they chase the Cleopatra around the globe, dodging curses, realizing that the same tricks and cons her family has used for centuries are useless this time.

Which means, this time, Katarina Bishop is making up her own rules. (from goodreads)

Uncommon Criminals is the second instalment of the Heist Society series. Where back with Kat, Hale and the gang ready to pull off another heist. Kat has a new client who wants her to pull off stealing something that hasn't been seen in the public for 30years, Cleopatra's emerald which is cursed. Along the journey they face many challenges along the way to finding the emerald and themseleves getting conned.

And then we have Kat and Hale. They have undeinable feelings for each other but will they act upon these feelings? Or will they just forget about them? So I just you all who haven't read the Heist series to go out and by these books! As you will just fall in love with Ally Carters writing and characterisation.

Rate: 5/5
