Looking for something adventurous? Look no further! Haven't we all dreamed of being able to travel the world, being rich, talented and able to go on sneaky missions? Kat Bishop has grown up in this life, her family of con artists and thieves dating back for generations. After making the decision to be normal, Kat attends a posh academy filled with the rich and privileged, but when someone vandalises the headmaster's car and frames her for it, she's expelled and forced to attend to important matters at hand...
W. W. Hale the Fifth was Kat's partner in crime. He's good looking, filthy rich and has a great personality - what's not to like? Throughout the novel these two characters feel an attraction and strong friendship for each other. The romance is very subtle, which will make you cherish every single moment! While I would have liked to see more romance, I enjoyed the fact that Heist Society is very focused on the plot. This isn't a mystery that gets solved in one hour episodes with impossible coincidences. Kat faces many complications and has much to achieve over the span of a few weeks.
This novel has strong characterisation and I loved meeting every single character that was introduced. From Gabrielle (the gorgeous cousin of Kat) to Hamish (one half of the Bagshaw brothers) to Nick (random-stranger-off-the-street-turned-ally)…Carter does a fantastic job of developing their personalities and making us like them. When they all worked together as a strong unit, they accomplished a lot of amazing things and this was a joy to experience!
Heist Society should be on your to-read list if you enjoy a good mystery, adventure and humour. It's a fast-paced and interesting read, which will also educate you in art and history along the way!
So what do you think? Are you going to give this book a go or are you already one of Ally's many fans? Leave me your thoughts!
