*fangirling hardcore*




Every single fangirl on the planet and the far reaches of space wanted a crossover. Come on, everyone knows it. And Ally, our flawless queen, is giving us exactly what we wanted.

THERE ARE NO WORDS. Except those^^^^^






Oh, my. So good. Ally knows how to treat her fans well.

HALE'S POV!!!YES, I have wanted this for ages!

(Note: the novella was released completely free for everyone by the publishers. So thank you Ally!)

What a perfect little novella! The combination of Hale and Macey is brilliant - I NEED THEM TO APPEAR TOGETHER AGAIN. Not as a couple or anything like that, just as a badass duo. I mean imagine this: both have a don't-give-a-damn attitude, both are witty and both have that badass sexy edge. Perfect team.

So here

Thanks to NetGalley for a copy of this book

For those of you who don't know, Ally Carter is the young adult author of The Gallagher Girls (a series about an academy that trains teenage girls to be spies) and The Heist Society ( an Ocean's Elevenish series about teenage thieves). Double Crossed is the highly anticipated crossover novella that brings these two different groups together.
*insert squealing tween fangirls here*
I've never read any of the Gallagher Girls books, but I have read the first

This was so amazing. I remember when I was reading the Heist Society and Gallagher Girl books, I was thinking how amazing it would be for Ally Carter to write a crossover. This was like a dream come true. At first when I read the description I was kind of skeptical about Hale and Macey working together because I love Kat and Hale together. After actually reading it I realized it was nothing like that. Hale's reactions to Kat were so cute and Macey was so badass. Overall I really enjoyed it. The

That was way too short.
Not being a huge fan of the Gallagher Girls series and a huge fan of the Heist society series. I was a little worried that maybe this book wouldn’t be for me, but I was wrong as Carter produces a brilliant mash up of two different worlds in Double Crossed.

Macey and Hale find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time, what was meant to be a friendly auction turns into all the guests being held hostage by a bunch of robbers who will stop at nothing to get what they want. Despite our favouri
this is why I love Ally Carter! This will be the best thing since sliced bread....



Omg kat and Gallagher academy....yes

Amazing novella, a really fun short story involving both series, and it was great to see Kat, Hale, Macey and Aunt Abby again-who knows? Maybe they'll meet again someday or Kat might just take up on Aunt Abby's offer... (Highly doubtful of that one though)

The mix of two series was incredibly fun to read and I'm so glad Ally made it free for everyone to download. :)




Gallagher Girls has combined with Heist Society. The have combined. In a book. (ok
Kaylee Magic
EDIT: Ally, it's official. I love you. Please please please write more books that take place in a cross between your two epic worlds!! In fact, ALL AUTHORS should do this more often. It's GENIUS.

That is all. (':


After finding out about this:


Oh my gosh, I think I'm going to die of happiness!!!!!!!! Please bury me in a coffin filled with Ally's other amazing books.

Kay, thanks.
What a cool idea to mix characters from two different series. I thought this was an enjoyable short-story. I liked Macey and Hale and how their two worlds collide. I liked the end when (view spoiler). If you like these series you'll enjoy this short story.

Content: Clean. Mild violence.
NO WAY! MIND BLOWN Hale and Macy? one book...well novella but STILL! Spies & Thieves One of the best book concepts ever! Don't you realize how cool that is?!? This takes place in the middle of GG5 and GG6 but between what two books for the heist society novels. Hmm, or is it even before that or maybe it's after the whole Heist Society novels, And KAT AND HALE ARE TOGETHER! AFUGAUEHSNAJ!!!! Okay, let's not get to ahead of our self. This is going to be TAH BOMB

After Reading It
I wish that thi
Anyone who has read the Heist Society series or Gallagher Girls series by author Ally Carter will more than likely agree that this novella, which collaborates characters from both these series, are a genius idea. I, on the other hand, haven’t yet read either of these series’ but after reading three chapters from each of the first books as bonus material in Double Crossed, I am eagerly looking forward to getting started on both.

That said, I enjoyed the sneak peeks of Heist Society and Gallagher
5 stars

Ever since Ms. Carter first mentioned this book I was really looking forward to reading it. A clash of Gallagher Girls and Heist Society? What's not to like there? :D So, I was overjoyed when I noticed it on NetGalley (and no requesting needed) :-) .

OK, on to the story itself. Imagine an ordinary society gala. A lot of rich, influential people wandering around. Filled to brims with women adorned in millions of dollars worth of diamonds. And one woman, the proud owner of the Canary diamond

Gallagher Girls meet Heist Society! Wow! This was such a fun short-story! If you like the Gallagher Girls series(which I love!) and you like The Heist Society(which I also love!) then you must read this book from Ally Carter.

Hale(from Heist Society) and Macey(from the Gallagher Girls Academy) are both at the Calloway Ball when a group of gunmen dressed in Presidential masks take the group hostage. The scheme seems much more elaborate than just a normal grab the jewels and run type job. Hale and
What an ambitious thing to do - incorporate your two very different series into one novella. I really liked the Heist Society books and was excited to hear there's going to be another one coming out soon. And I've never read the Gallagher Girls, but after reading this novella, I am definitely curious.

I really like Carter's intricate planning - each little step that she is careful to set up to where it works out so well in the whole story. And I wasn't crazy about it at first, but her "no one not
Do my eyes deceive me? or did I just read that the Gallagher girls and the heist society series are going to combined!!! ^O^. CAN'T. WAIT. to see how this will play out... Hee Hee

This was really good. It.drives me.insane to think that the two series we're occurring at the same timeFrame... :O mind blow...I never thought of that.
Reading this Novella I suddenly got a overwhelming feeling of nostalgia...back for a reread of Gallagher girls
Mlpmom (Book Reviewer)
Absolutely loved these two worlds colliding and seriously hope they do again in the future. This also reminded me that as much as I love the Heist Society, I have a feeling I am going to love Gallagher girls just as much.
Must start it soon!
Kate Lynn
So short yet soooo goood! Hope there will be more of this! I really like the idea of having Cammie and her friends meet up with Kat's crew. I just wish it will happen in the near future. *fingers crossed* :)
All I have to say is that there better be another one like this. Ally Carter could even write another book or series or novella about Kat going Gallagher Accdemy! Now that would be awesome.
Mary H
What the what?! This is ridiculously awesome. I never imagined that the Gallagher Girls and the Heist crew would meet. I am speechless and totally in love with this concept.
Macey doesn't end up with Preston, and Hale not with Kate?

Double Crossed is freaking brilliant. If you've never read the Gallagher Girls series, allow me to cry for you. YOU ARE MISSING OUT. And if you've never read the Heist Society series, we can cry together because I haven't either. But better late then never, right? :D

So guys. This book (novella, but whatever). It's AMAZING. It reminded me of just how much I loved this series. GG is due for a re-read; it's been years since I read it. Ally Carter is a genius when it comes to spy books. I will actua
Ally Carter is one of those automatic authors for me...I see a book she releases and I buy it. I was first introduced to her Heist Society series while browsing art at the Met Museum in NYC with Tales of A Ravenous Readr. Since reading Uncommon Criminals I've been hooked! When I saw this fun novella that blends both of her series characters into one setting I had to check it out. I've never read the Gallagher Girls, but they are at the top of my wish list after sampling Macey's personality in Do ...more
Every Ally Carter fan has always wanted a GG/ Heist Society crossover. And now, our dream has come true.
I enjoyed Double Crossed a lot- it's got the fast, fun pacing of all of Ally Carter's novels, Hale and Macey at a fancy ball in fancy dress, our beloved Kat hanging upside down in the shadows, a huge jewel just begging to be stolen, funny displays of badassery (including the SWATT team creeping in, only to find that all the bad guys have been neatly tied up for them (courtesy of our favourite
I wasn't sure how I was going to like the Gallagher Girls/ Heist society mix... But I loved it!!!!!!!

It was so fun to get inside Macey's, Abby's, and Hale's heads. To see how they think and what not. I really like how much action there was in such a short book. And I loved that you got to see how much Abby and Macey's Dad really do love her, and how she loves and respects both of them. I mean you kinda get to see it in the GG series but Ally Carter put more emphases into this story.

Okay, so I haven't read an Ally Carter book since early last year when GG5 first came out. But reading this novella simply reminded me exactly why I fell in love with Ally Carter's writing. Simply put, she's amazing! Her storylines are intriguing and mysterious and the characters are funny and captivating and makes you wish you knew people like them or are them. ;) And everytime one of my questions such as 'Oh no why is Hale pushing his mother into an elevator?!' has been answered another one po ...more

I have been waiting for this e-novella since oh, I don't know it seems like months and months. Why? Okay, I adore Ally's writing, her characters and both the Heist Society and the Gallagher Girl series have me on the very edge of my seat waiting for the next (and final) installments. So this morning when I poured my cup of coffee and checked my kindle for the download, I may have breathed a sigh of relief that it was yes indeed, there.

“You're late." Kat said as soon as Hale put the phone to his ear. She wasn't the kind of girl to wait for hello.

"What can I say? Macey McHenry has been throwing herself at me..."

"See, that's the kind of thing that would make me jealous if she weren't way out of your league."

"You know, if I had feelings, that might have hurt them.”
“What are they after?” Kat asked.
“Hard to say,” Hale said; again, he eyed the room.
“Who is that?” Macey asked.
“The reason I wasn’t flirting with you,” Hale told her.”
