Surviving a few weeks at the world's most lethal boarding school was one thing. But now comes the real test: Can November Adley find her missing father before her enemies find her? Subterfuge is the name of the game in this thrilling sequel to Killing November, from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of How to Hang a Witch.
After surviving a crash course in espionage at the mysterious Academy Absconditi, November has only one purpose: finding her missing father. Along with fellow student (and heartthrob) Ash, November follows the clues that her father left, embarking on the deadliest treasure hunt of her life. The first clue is in her hometown, where old friends beckon and unexpected enemies lurk around every corner. The second clue is in Europe, where revelations about her family's history will plunge her into an international web of deception, lies, and intrigue. The third clue is deep in enemy territory, surrounded by the most skilled assassins and master strategists, and where everyone wants her and her father dead. Can one girl with limited training infiltrate a centuries-old organization that is powerful enough to topple empires? November only knows that she'll do whatever it takes to save her father . . . or die trying.
Absolutely one of the best books that I have read in awhile! Enthralling from start to finish. Well worth that time lost to reading this book.
How did it get better
What started as a fun read for me in the first book turned into incomparable adoration in the second. The author fully explored the depths of all of our favorite characters and twists were abundant and of high quality. I didn’t realize just how much I truly loved this duology until I touched my cheeks and they were wet from emotion. This book is FUN. This book is SMART. These characters are THREE DIMENSIONAL. thats all I ever ask for and Mather delivered.
