This week I re-read Heist Society by Ally Carter on my Nook. I had read it in hard cover from the library, but never on my nook and I was in the mood for more of her wonderful writing after completing Only the Good Spy Young the week before. So what did I learn? That sometimes a series the books just get better and better due to character development and marvelous plotting and sometimes they get worse and worse, generally the fault is plotting in that instance. But both first books in both of Ally’s two series are wonderful and I love them. But at least with her spy series the second is better and the third is better than that and the fourth is the best of all. Heist Society feels very much like the first book of her other series. It is wonderful, but leaves you wanting more, wondering what will come. I think this must be how things are supposed to go when the author does her job well. As you read more the characters deepen and the plot thickens and things just go from marvelous to spectacular. Now that I am almost finished with the first book of my…cough cough unsold… series, I have the challenge of constructing the second book, and taking it up a notch, making it better and bolder and purely awesome! Argh! There is truly no rest for the wicked.
