#BookReview: Uncommon Criminals by Ally Carter

Purchase: Amazon / B&N / Book Depository


Katarina Bishop has worn a lot of labels in her short life. Friend. Niece. Daughter. Thief. But for the last two months she’s simply been known as the girl who ran the crew that robbed the greatest museum in the world. That’s why Kat isn’t surprised when she’s asked to steal the infamous Cleopatra Emerald so it can be returned to its rightful owners.

There are only three problems. First, the gem hasn’t been seen in public in thirty years. Second, since the fall of the Egyptian empire and the suicide of Cleopatra, no one who holds the emerald keeps it for long, and in Kat’s world, history almost always repeats itself. But it’s the third problem that makes Kat’s crew the most nervous and that is simply… the emerald is cursed.

Kat might be in way over her head, but she’s not going down without a fight. After all she has her best friend—the gorgeous Hale—and the rest of her crew with her as they chase the Cleopatra around the globe, dodging curses, realizing that the same tricks and cons her family has used for centuries are useless this time.

Which means, this time, Katarina Bishop is making up her own rules.

My Thoughts

I love this book so much. I'm still striguing about the whole story about Vasili and who's behind all of that. On this book Kat has to face her new fame as the one who robed the Henley and the perks and cons that arrived with it. We see more characters developing on this book; also we have more look into Gabriel, the Bagshaw brothers, Simon, and of course, Hale. Specially Kat and Hale's dynamic is marvelous, and when I won't say anything about they're relationship developement, I say that I love how they act around each other and how they interact. I really love this book and I recommend it to anyone who love a great mystery and YA books.
