Katarina Bishop has worn a lot of labels in her short life, Friend, Niece, Daughter, Thief, but for the last two months she's simply been known as the girl who robbed the greatest museum in the world. That's why Kat isn't surprised when she's asked to steal the infamous Cleopatra Emerald so it can be returned to its rightful owners. There are only three problems. First, the gem is owned by the most secure auction house in the world. Second, since the fall of the Egyptian empire and the suicide of Cleopatra, no one who holds the emerald keeps it for long, and in Kat's world, history almost always repeats itself. But it's the third problem that makes Kat's crew the most nervous and that is simply... the emerald is cursed.

I've been holding off buying the book because it is so dang expensive, but when I found out I was going on a 3 1/2 hour car right with a bunch of 11 year old girls, I knew exactly what to do! I love Ally Carter's writing style and I recommend all of her books to anyone who loves adventure, action, girl power (cause girls rule!), and a little romance to keep things interesting. ;) I'm now looking forward to a long car ride!
Worth the Wait!
Calling all Ally Carter fans! This book does not disappoint! It keeps you on your toes and guessing through the entire novel. Carter's books are the best I have ever read, and don't mind paying then price at all! The ultimate summer read for ALL ages!
