Author: Sarah E. A mortal alchemist. A faerie king. Once again Ally Carter offers all the right elements for another fun read - clever writing, a quick and suspenseful plot and entertaining characters.
Again there were plenty of twists in this cleverly constructed plot making it impossible to put Uncommon Criminals down. And when I did I was thinking about all the ways Kat could possibly get herself out of trouble this time. I also love how Carter brilliantly describes the settings.
She really knows how to capture the beautiful places like Monte Carlo the crew visits and you can picture everything perfectly thanks to Carter's wonderful writing. Kat is a genuine and likeable character. She is independent, smart and stubborn. In this instalment Kat has to learn to that she doesn't have to do everything on her own even if she doesn't need help. That it is okay to want help from her crew. Kat showed a lot growth. I also love the distinctive bunch of secondary characters. As soon as I started the book I was eagerly awaiting when Hale, Gabrielle, Simon or the Bagshaw brothers would pop up in the story and when they did they didn't disappoint.
I know fans of the first book will be wondering about the romance. Does anything happen with Hale? Well all I can say is the spark is still there and you will have to read the book I recommend immediately. Overall, this is one addictive series that I highly recommend. I really hope Carter writes a Heist Society 3.

I wish I read it when I was 14 or 15 because I would've adored it. It's light, fun and overall cute. Of course, sometimes we get a bit of drama-llama situations and questionable choices made by our interesting characters but overall, this entire trilogy is entertaining. Hale is cute, though, I love him.

I didn't know it was possible for me to like a book more than Heist Society Book Those were some awesome plot twists, and to be honest, I think this was even better than the first book I'm going to start making a list of the names Kat guesses for Hale's first name Update: After reading this and the first book, I now have an official list of the names Kat has guessed for Hale, along with whether he definitely said no or if it was a noncommittal answer.

Ally Carter wrote in everything I look for in a good heist story: the loyal crew for the hero or in this case, heroine , plot twists at every turn, crazy mysterious villains, and of course, the seemingly impossible heist that the crew needs to pull off by the end of the story.

I would say that Uncommon Criminals is the blockbuster, popcorn novel for YA for this summer as Super 8 is this summer's blockbuster movie for Hollywood- sort of There was no way I couldn't like this book even if I tried. I would say that Uncommon Criminals is the blockbuster, popcorn novel for YA for this summer as Super 8 is this summer's blockbuster movie for Hollywood- sort of hyped up but not as much as others have been and attached to several big names of their respective industries. Of course coming from Ally Carter, the plot of Uncommon Criminals was nothing short of riveting.
For the whole pages I kept the novel in my hands and never looked up unless to quickly take a sip of my caramel frapp, or occasionally getting distracted by people sitting next to me. The writing was elegant and polished, adding some glamor needed for the story like this. Kat was a believable character. The way she sticks with her family, and the way she takes up a Robin Hood-like role was poignant to me. She seems so wise and she's seen so much of the world already that I was taken aback when I remembered that she was only fifteen.
The same goes for the rest of her crew.

It's hard to believe that they're only sixteen or under! Speaking of Kat's crew, I badly badly badly want to join them. Not so much for the thievery, but for the traveling I want to go all around Europe The second in command of Kat's crew is W. Hale, who's handsome, smart, conveniently rich , and every bit as stubborn as Kat herself.
One of the best aspects of the novel, besides the thievery was Kat and Hale dynamic. It plays out nicely because we and Kat and Hale themselves never forget that they're first and foremost best friends. The other crew members are Simon, the tech geek of the group Q: Why is every "geeky" guy named Simon these days? The heist itself? Brilliantly done. I know that I'll have to read over the ending again to take in all of it. I'm really looking forward to finding out who Visily Romani is or will we every find out?
It might've been the frapp and the windy weather outside, but it suddenly got chilly whenever Mr or Ms? Romani's name got mentioned. Very mysterious Recommended to all. View 1 comment. Feb 08, Melannie : rated it it was amazing Shelves: read , summer-reads Where do I begin?
I remember reading Heist Society a loooong time ago, I remember listening to the audiobook of it quite a few times, I remember loving this series. I loved this book! I was so surprised and pleased to discovered it is as good as the first one, plus more adventures, more truths, even more lies, and oh so many incredibly kick-butt action!
The characters! Gosh the characters! I didn't recall them being this awesome! It takes some okay, a lot of talent to write a book like this, and to me, Miss Carter deserves an standing ovasion! I can't even imagine how much time it took for her to plot all her characters' actions. Each and everyone of the situations on this book were complicated and tricky at first to be ended later in the most simplified way you could think of or actually, haven't think of these guys are teenagers after all, and trust them to find the answer to an exit problem using five hundred doves not kidding, don't ask What I also loved about this second book is that it shows Kat's flaws.
I mean I knew she had them, SHE knew she had them, but it's nice to see them aknowledged. She can be a super kick ass thief, but she's also a fifteen year old girl who has normal problems while living an extraordinary life. And Hale, oh W. Hale the Fifth, how I love you!

He kept the loyalness he has come to be known for. He's awesome, you can tell he's deeply in love with Kat, but he's not gonna take her crap, and I like that, he's fierce! Every other character kick major butt in this one too. This book is incredible and I can't wait for the people at WB to give the green light so they can start turning this series into a movie! It'd be the ultimate action-packed, romance-full, funny-filled film I've ever hoped to watch! Jun 11, Daiane rated it really liked it. I could totally picture the world and loved Carte's way of making the characters look like good badass people.
They are thieves who have no unbelievable tech, guns or really dangerous people behind them and still made the book enjoyable. I liked how they were conning and robbing in a classic and elegant way and still were the good guy. And how sly they were. The writing was really easy and pleasant but the romance She studied him for a long time. Or at least more with Nick!
So because it was lacking is some ways, I wouldn't say this book is a YA but had more of a Middle Grade feeling to it. The plot twist got me by surprise but the ending was really predictable. It was a really easy read and would recommend it for sure :D Dec 05, Seesen9 rated it really liked it Shelves: worth-rereading , spectacular-cover , young-adult , favorites.
