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.
An entertaining, fast-paced, rollicking romp through White House and the wilds of Alaska.
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.
...a fast-paced and gripping read. It's got some serious girl-power, plenty of action scenes and some great sarcastic lines.
A brilliant book by Ally. It was such an amazing standalone that I can't wait for everyone to read it.
It's fun, dangerous, action packed and keeps you wanting to read more to see what other tricks Maddie has up her sleeve.
