Review: United We Spy (Gallagher Girls #6)

Ally Carter - United We Spy

Cammie Morgan has lost her father and her memory, but in the heart-pounding conclusion to the best-selling Gallagher Girls series, she finds her greatest mission yet. Cammie and her friends finally know why the terrorist organization called the Circle of Cavan has been hunting her. Now the spy girls and Zach must track down the Circle’s elite members to stop them before they implement a master plan that will change Cammie—and her country—forever.

I’ve been wanting to read the conclusion to this series ever since finishing the fifth book, and this book definitely didn’t disappoint. I loved returning to the familiar world of Cammie, Zach and their friends, and seeing how their final adventures played out. Also, I loved the fact that this book could go from fun to possible heartbreak at any time.

The covers of this series are great. The mysterious aspect of not being able to quite see the person on the cover works well, and I really like the simple-ness of the colour scheme.

This book was such an easy read, and it was definitely gripping. I found it hard to put it down, and I loved the occasional, completely unexpected plot twists that happened every so often. There were intense moments which had me turning pages very quickly, and there were really nice, adorable scenes which I absolutely loved. Ally Carter has a way of writing lovely relationships between couples. Also, I was a huge of the ending of this book as, even when you think it’s all over, a lot keeps happening. The epilogue was great too, as was the bonus short story in my copy of the book.

I love Cammie. She’s such a strong character who has been through a lot in her life, yet she’s still ready to try and save the world from a potential World War. Also, she’s never ready to give up on her friends, and she’ll always try and do the right thing. Her relationship with Zach is wonderful, and I loved all the scenes that they share. Zach himself is a great character too. Even though he has a complicated back story, he’s still able to leave it behind him and help Cammie.

The secondary characters in this book are great too. Bex, Liz and Macey are a great group of friends, and the friendship between them and Cammie is so believable. Each of them is so unique with different personalities, and I love them all. The other side characters are great too, and really added to the story.

One problem that I did have, and this wasn’t really because of the book, was that I couldn’t remember half the things that happened in the previous book. I read it a while ago, but I did manage to slowly remember the events as I read more of the book.

Spies. They’re simply awesome.

I loved the lists in the book. It’s different to most other books, and I just really liked reading them.

I really enjoyed this book, and I would recommend it to all fans of the series, fans of spies, boarding schools and nice romance.
