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.

Can we all just take a moment to appreciate this series and all that Ally Carter has given us.

Let’s go through a little bit of history together shall we? I started this series back in 6th grade, probably around a year after the first book came out. I was just getting pulled into the Contemporary, and Teen genres, so I was instantly hooked. I immediately fell in love with Cammie Morgan, and the thought of a spy academy. I don’t even know where to begin to explain my love for this series; how about, as I was walking to the check-out line at Barnes & Nobles, I got tears in my eyes? Yeah. I also went completely out of my way to buy the book the 2 days after it came out, and finished it in approximately 1 1/2 days

This book was the ultimatum. The conclusion of everything. The end to my childhood favorite series, the end to E V E R Y T H I N G. I was both ecstatic and sad.

I absolutely have no words. This book had everything. Action, love, suspense. I LOVED IT AND I MISS ALLY CARTER AND CAMMIE SO MUCH. There were so many twists and turns, and Carter has you flipping your mind back and forth, thinking, “HOLD UP. HOW is that even possible. What is even happening.” Cammie was so badass, and that increased my love to be a spy… not that that’s going to happen anytime soon, but hey, a girl can dream okay.

When Cammie “reminisces” about the academy in the end (if you read the book you UNDERSTAND WHY THERE ARE QUOTATION MARKS), I was sobbing uncontrollably. The way that she describes each secret tunnel, each stairway, each door, makes me tear up. I’ve been so immersed in the series that as she was looking back at the academy, I truly felt the same emotions that she felt. The heartbreak, the nostalgia, and the TEARS. OH GOD THE TEARS. She’d describe one tunnel, and her mind would flash to a time when she used it, which causes my mind to flip back to that book from two years ago. Ally Carter does such a good job with bringing in all of the books in the series, and somehow connecting everything together.

SO MUCH ACTION I literally can’t even begin to explain. Like actually, from the very beginning (it was such an epic opening), to the very very end, there was action.

I’m going to miss this series so very much.

P.S. Sorry for an INCREDIBLY late review. School got the best of me.
