Only The Good Spy Young by Ally Carter review

Only the Good Spy Young by Ally Carter (Gallagher Girls #4)

copy won from ChickLish

Synopsis from Goodreads
When Cammie Morgan enrolled at the Gallagher Academy, she knew she was preparing for the dangerous life of a spy. What she didn’t know was that the serious, real-life danger would start during her junior year of high school. But that’s exactly what happened two months ago when she faced off against an ancient terrorist organization dead set on kidnapping her.

Now the danger follows her everywhere and even Cammie “The Chameleon” can’t hide. When a terrifying encounter in London reveals that one of her most-trusted allies is actually a rogue double-agent Cammie no longer knows if she can trust her classmates, her teachers—or even her own heart.

In this fourth installment of the New York Times best-selling series, the Gallagher Girls must hack, spy, steal, and lie their way to the truth as they go searching for answers, recognizing that the key to Cammie’s future may lie deep in the past....

I might be biased here :) but I've been reading Ally Carter for a few years already and can't help but love the direction the books are taking.

The series started off with this humorous mischievous feel to them, and as Cammie, Macey, Bex and Liz grew, so as the undertones of books changed bit by bit.

Last couple of books are getting darker, and Gallagher Girls are slowly starting to understand that being a spy is not a one big adventure. It's dangerous, heartbreaking, it's a burden and responsibility.

Now that The Circle, a mysterious terrorist organization solely consisting of double agents all over the world, will do anything to kidnap Cammie, she doesn't know who is her friend and who is the enemy (because The Circle recruits very young) her whole world crumbles and she has to choose who to believe and take her destiny in her own hands.

I love Cammie! I can see the potential in her. She will be glorious when she grows up, and I really want the series to continue and grow with her. The ending in this book is bittersweet, and I can't wait to see what's next.

As I said I'm biased, I adore spy stories, and Gallagher Girls is something between Stormbreaker and St.Trinian altogether, but it's also a love-or-hate book. So, decide for yourself which side you're on.

"Afraid of spiders?" I guessed.
But Bex ploughed on, "Still a little deaf from the percussion grenade incident during finals week."

Я читаю про Академию Галлахер уже несколько лет, и мне нравится в каком направлении идёт Алли Картер. Если первые две книги были подростковыми, про подростковые проблемы юных шпионок, то последние две значительно взрослее, с реальными проблемами и настоящими угрозами. Супер-секретная организация Круг (The Circle), состоящая из двойных агентов по всему миру, гоняется за Камми неизвестно почему. Камми узнаёт, что её любимый учитель по Оперциям под прикрытием, Джо Соломон, был завербован Кругом в 16 лет. Джо удаётся прорваться к Камми на несколько минут и оставить шифрованную фразу "следуй за голубями" перед тем, как снова ускользнуть от спецслужб, которые его ищут.

Теперь Камми, Бекс, Мэйси и Лиз предстоит разгадать, что эта фраза значит, совершить множество операций под прикрытием,  и в то же время попытаться ускользнуть от Круга.

Девочки определённо растут и становятся всё серьёзнее и подозрительнее. Даже Закари, любовный интерес Камми, не ослепляет ей как в прошлых книгах, и заставляет задаться сначала вопросами, почему он с ней и каковы его цели?

Книги совершенно на любителя, но я страшно люблю шпионские страсти, поэтому они мне всегда нравились. Концовка тоже оказалась горько-сладкой.
У Алли Картер есть ещё одна серия про воровку, я намереваюсь почитать и её.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
