Book Review: Map of Fates
Book 2 in the Conspiracy of Us series
AUTHOR: Maggie Hall
PUBLISHED: March 8th, 2016
PREMISE: Avery continues to hunt for clues to find a way to bring down the Circle.
MY REVIEW: The Conspiracy of Us was a very interesting read. I hadn't been expecting much from it, but wound up enjoying the hell out of it. In fact, I read it in one sitting. I won't lie to you: the premise is absurd. But it somehow works. It's like how shows on the SyFy channel shouldn't work but do somehow.
This second book actually managed to keep up that pace. Now some of it did drag. The author sadly fell into love triangle hell, so a large part of the book is taken up with that but it's YA so, what can you do? But the ending makes all that worth it. The author actually managed to surprise me with where she went with things. That doesn't happen often in today's very predictable book market.
So, while the love triangle stuff was...ugh, the rest of this was just as enjoyable as the first one. This series is still pretty bonkers, but as I said before, it's a fun sort of bonkers. And after that twist ending, I'm definitely picking up the next book.
WHO SHOULD READ: those that enjoyed the first book, The Da Vinci Code fans
MY RATING: Three and a half out of Five whirlwind tours of the world
