Review: Double Crossed by Ally Carter

If you are a fan of Ally Carter's Gallagher Girls and Heist Society series, you won't want to miss her new (free) crossover novella eBook, Double Crossed.

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.

Ally Carter's books are very entertaining, exciting, and clean! Having her two popular series combine in Double Crossed was very fun. My only disappointment was that it was over so quickly. The story was wrapped up very well, I just wanted to spend more time with the characters.

Even if you haven't read either series yet, I recommend reading this novella. There are excerpts at the end for both series, and you can't beat free (it is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble).
