Conspiracy 365: May-August

"12 Exciting Books.
1 Terrifying Year.
Don't Blink. Don't Forget to Breathe."
Bookworm's Ranking - 4 Worms

Storyline - Books 5-8 - The mystery of the Ormond Singularity, Riddle, and Jewel are slowly coming together with the help of Cal's friends. But that doesn't mean things have gotten easier. In fact, they're worse, with Cal being taken in at a asylum, berried alive, captured by police all the while trying to stay ahead of the criminals chasing him. Some are out to help him, others are trying to kill him. It will take everything he's got to stay sane and alive. But the most recent attack on Cal might be the one that ends it all.

Author - Gabrielle Lord

Publisher - Kane/Miller Book Publishers

Age Group - 14 or 15 and up

Content - *May Contain Spoilers* Cal tends to lie, steal, and has to fight the bad guys that come after him (not graphic). Lives for a short time with a friend who is a girl, he on the couch and nothing happens. Goes to a sauna to talk to someone. Cal does want to do the right thing, being kind to others, and plans to pay back what he takes from those who help him. Cal goes from one tight spot to another and is willing to do what he can for the ones he loves.

Personal Opinion - Still an exciting adventure filled with intrigue, mystery, plot twists, and action. Wonderfully created characters and descriptions bring it to life in just it few short pages. Loving learning more and more about this mystery and how ancient family history (probably fake history) is being brought into the story to affect the characters now. I also like that Cal ended up in a convent for a little while. Even though he wasn't too fond of the order, it was still a pretty accurate, and good, representation. I also a appreciate how Cal is thinking about how he has changed since this has began and what he thinks of them. August's cliff-hanger has to be my favorite so far, it is leaving me anxious and going "What?!"  I was thinking of taking a break from the series to read a couple others books but I don't think I will be able to. Have. To. Know. How. It. All. ENDS!
