Novella Review: Double Crossed by Ally Carter

AUTHOR: Ally Carter
PUBLISHER: Disney Hyperion
 
PAGES: 89

STAND ALONE/SERIES: Novella to Gallagher Girls and Heist Society
SOURCE: bought as an ebook for free
OUTLINE:

Macey McHenry—Glamorous society girl or spy-in-training?

W.W. Hale V—Heir to an American dynasty or master thief?

There are two sides to every coin. Whether these two can work together is a tossup.

Born into privilege, Macey and Hale are experts at mingling with the upper class. But even if they’ve never raised an eyebrow at the glitz, neither teenager has ever felt at home with the glamour.

When Macey and Hale meet at a society gala, the party takes a dangerous turn. Suddenly they’re at the center of a hostage situation, and it’s up to them to stop the thugs from becoming hostile. Will Macey’s spy skills and Hale’s con-man ways be enough to outsmart a ruthless gang? Or will they have to seek out the ultimate inside girl to help?

The worlds of Heist Society and the Gallagher Girls collide in Ally Carter’s fast-paced, high-stakes and tantalizing new story. Get a behind the scenes glimpse as Ally delivers an irresistible thriller that is full of her signature style and savvy twists

MY THOUGHTS
Two awesome series merging to form this little novella. I absolutely adore Ally Carter's writing. Her characters are always so fun, sarcastic, and enjoyable. I don't know why more authors don't try and merge some of their highly enjoyable series together. I mean yes they do the spin offs like Vampire academy and bloodlines, but eh. Then again maybe it's just the way Ally Carter delivers her stories and is able to do so flawlessly in my opinion.
As much as I loved Cammie and the other girls in the gallagher girls books it was fun to see Macey out and on her own, and then to add Hale and Kat from Heist Society was the icing on the cake.
You really don't have to read the other books to read this short story, but I guarentee once you read this one you'll want to learn more about them in their natural surroundings. Hale and Kat with their friends cooking up jewelry/art heists or Macey with Cammie, Bex, and Liz at the Gallagher Academy for the
gifted.
