Format: Hardcover
Among the vast sea of dystopian universes and paranormal creatures currently inhabiting a majority of shelves in the YA section of bookstores, Ally Carter's tales of teenage spies and thieves adds a refreshing twist to being extraordinary. Carter's characters aren't superhuman or special in any other way then in their ability to learn and become exceptional at whatever they put their minds to being. Part of why I read fiction is to get lost in another world, but sometimes the best fantasies are the ones not too far removed from reality.

Katarina's struggles are always an interesting study in contradiction.

I mean really, how does one rebel when they come from a long line of thieves? Kitty Kat may be back, but she's having a go at it alone. It seems her stint at the Colgan School was just the first of her dissent from the family. She's trying to define herself and create her own path in the world she grew up in. But in adhering to her new moral code, distancing herself, and alienating her crew, Kat's forgotten the most important rule: Family First.

Of course, being fifteen and an old pro in the family business can give a girl the illusion of knowing everything, but some lessons you can only learn with time and experience. Katarina Bishop is taking her talent and applying it for good instead of greed. Morally Kat knows stealing is bad, but it's what she's good at. Toting the line between right and wrong, she's trying to use her skills to help return priceless items that were taken from their owners long ago. But someone is about to use Kat's altruistic endeavors against her and con the con artist.

I absolutely love this series. There's something about Ally's writing that completely hooks me and captures my attention from the moment I sit down to read her books. I get so caught up in the world travels, the excitement of the plot and of course the chemistry between Kat and Hale is AWESOME! I love the way Ally creates the right about amount of tension, and desire between the two of them. There's the little moments between them, and the scenes were the two of them are so close to each other makes me want to shove the two of them together and tell them to kiss already. I true adore these two characters and the history they have together.

Mixed in with the fabulous character chemistry is the enticing plot. The cons are greater and have much higher stakes in this fabulous, must have sequel to The Heist Society. I felt like I got to understand Kat more and her motivates for the things she does. I sympathized with her and I of course love the team that supports her with Hale, Gabrielle and the rest of her family, and I can't forget Nick. Like Hale, I still have my reservations about him, but there's a moment with Kat on the yacht when he says something to to her that made me like him even more. Even with Nick back for part of the story, I'm team Hale all the way.

I love both the story's plot and settings. The plot itself is full of some great twists, and this time it involves a little old well kept family secret. One of the things that I find fascinating with the story and the series, is the way in which Ally ties together classic art and it's history. She vividly describes the places Kat, Hale and team venture to around the world to find these pieces.

After the resounding success of her first major heist, where she led the teenage crew that robbed the most secure museum in the world, Kat Bishop, to the consternation of her family and friends, has transformed herself into a most unusual thief. Instead of stealing because that's the family business, Kat specializes in recovery -- returning priceless art to its original owners or their heirs, righting the wrongs of wars long past. When an old woman approaches her with a tantalizing story -- her parents discovered and were robbed of the fabled Cleopatra Emerald, a priceless gem unseen for over forty years, Kat can't resist the challenge. Against the advice of her friends, and sure she can succeed, Kat stages a brilliant heist and delivers the jewel. High on the con's success, Kat's world is rocked when she discovers that she's been the victim of a carefully staged con, decades in the making. In order to right a terrible wrong Kat must travel halfway around the world and take on the best in the business, and along the way must decide where she fits in her quirky family, and if a girl raised on the con can make herself vulnerable enough to trust those who want to love her most.

To put it simply, Uncommon Criminals rocks. Taking place a mere two months after Heist Society, Carter's second outing featuring Kat & Crew is every bit as fun as the first. Only this time around, the cons are bigger and the stakes are higher, making Uncommon Criminals every bit as entertaining and compulsively readable as its predecessor and then some. Whether sixteen or thirty-one (like yours truly), Kat's glamorous, danger-tinged lifestyle and budding romance with the ever-loyal Hale is sure to appeal to anyone craving a wickedly funny and clever slice of escapist fantasy.
