From USA Today bestselling author Jillian Dodd comes the third book in sizzling series filled with action and adventure. Fans of The Selection and The Hunger Games will discover a heart-pounding thrill ride of espionage and suspense set in glittering high society.
Sent to London for their next mission, Huntley and Ari are guests at Malcolm Prescott's home, where Ari is asked to join a secret group called The Society, and Huntley learns more about her "father" Ares Von Allister.
Spy Girl was trained not to have emotional entanglements, but Huntley is learning that it's hard to survive in the real world without them. As she uncovers hidden truths about her past, the knowledge leaves her reeling and questioning everything. She's going to have to trust someone, and it's not going to be Black X. So she goes against her training and forms relationships--caring, trusting, and, maybe, even loving.
But relationships are dangerous for a spy. Particularly one who will be facing her most challenging mission to date. Tasked with getting close to the illusive Money Man, she will be forced to delve into a seedy underworld that will threaten her very existence.
This series started off a little bit rocky for me but has become more and more solid with each book. I really enjoyed the second book, The Eagle, and almost wish that this one, The Society, was longer! I don’t really feel like it answers any questions for me but just added on a lot of extra information. Don’t worry though, there’s still plenty of action, mystery and suspense to go along with it!
I’m warming up the the relationship more so now too between Huntley and Lorenzo. This is first book where I’m actually understanding and believing her reasoning, feelings and emotions as they relate to the King of Montrovia.
Between conspiracy theories, assassinations, spies, secret societies, sex trafficking, and uncovering the mystery surrounding her mothers death, Huntley really delivers in this novel. This is e kind of stuff I expected from this series and it’s such a joy to read!
For some reason, I expected this to be the last book in the series, so I was a little worried about all of the questions I didn’t didn’t have answers to or the loose ends that needed to be tied. But then Jillian goes and throws in a pretty decent cliffhanger (and by that I mean damn, I hanging here!), which I then had to immediately check on the next book. Of course, there’s more books – I’m actually really excited for this – and the story will continue with book 4, The Valiant, in March, 2018. Do you think if I ask nicely, it’ll come sooner? Because I really don’t think I can wait that long.
Stay tuned for Huntley, Ari, Intrepid and Lorenzo to continue unraveling these mysteries and to do so while staying out of harms way. After reading The Society (and with that ending!), I can’t wait to see where their story goes next!
—- This book cannot be read as a standalone. You must first read The Prince, then The Eagle before continuing onto Th Society. —-
