A brilliant book by Ally. It was such an amazing standalone that I can't wait for everyone to read it.
...a fast-paced and gripping read. It's got some serious girl-power, plenty of action scenes and some great sarcastic lines.
An entertaining, fast-paced, rollicking romp through White House and the wilds of Alaska.
If you want a book full of girl power, you've come to the right place. [...] Ally always knows a way to a girls/readers heart, her characters and stories are always fashionable, relatable, funny and for me a breath of fresh air.
What most enthralled me about this novel is its challenges of gender stereotypes. Rather that portraying a thriller where the innocent female character is expected to be saved by the male protagonist, we are presented with a strong independent individual, who is able to stand on her own. To make this a further empowering read Maddy proves that in order to be a warrior, there is no expectation to lose your femininity when fighting the bad guys. Carter's writing prose allows for a tense read with much comedic relief while portraying an important message.
It's fun, dangerous, action packed and keeps you wanting to read more to see what other tricks Maddie has up her sleeve.
