This action packed mystery book is a series you just can't put down. In May, Cal wakes up in a straight jacket. Cal finally escapes and goes to his great uncle Bartheiwmio. Cal is escaping the oriona de le force again. In this book you really don't know what is going to happen. Is he going to die? Will he escape? That's what is amazing about this book.

My opinion on this book is that it is a great book. This series can be confusing.
It is like every second could be his last. I think that any one...more

I liked Conspiracy 365 May but the reason i did not give the book 5 out of five is because you know whats going to happen at the beginning he wakes up in a asylum pretty good start and you wonder if he can get out to prove his innocent and to solve his fathers riddle but then you realized that there are more books left so you start to loose interest i know you say read the first 20 pages and if you don't like it stop reading it but i want to finish this series i need to know what will happen i r...more

The title of my book is Conspiracy 365 May and the author’s name is Gabrielle Lord. The genre of the book is adventure. Callum Ormond has light yellow hair and wears a white shirt, black pants and a book bag. Callum likes having help from other people helping him solve his family secrets. People treat Callum badly because they think he tried to hurt his uncle and younger sister, but he was set up. The setting first starts at the Leechwood Lodge Asylum because he gets trapped there and then the...more

Some unavoidable spoilers for previous books of the
Conspiracy 365 series may be contained in this review.



Wow, what a breath of fresh air May turned out to be. After a rather irritating start it smoothed out and slowly developed into the best instalment of this series so far. We get answers. Finally! Real answers that solve some of the mysteries and don't open more and more lines of investigation. Plus, there is no over-dramatized, completely improbable drama - well, maybe one scene of it but...more

May Conspiracy 365 is the fifth book in the Conspiracy 365 series by Australian author Gabrielle Lord. Cal wakes from being tranquilised in his worst nightmare: he’s in a mental asylum under the name Ben Galloway and no-one will believe him. He spends almost 3 weeks there before Winter and Boges manage to spring him in a clever (if slightly unrealistic) manner. Cal hitches a ride to Mt Helicon and spends some very fruitful days with his Great-uncle Bartholomew, learning about family history, dis...more

May is almost unrecognisable as the successor to the damp squib that was April. As Cal’s ongoing nightmare continues, Lord radically rethinks her approach to the series with excellent results.

The early part picks up with Cal in the psychiatric hospital he was forcibly admitted to. It’s a change of tone and pace, and a big change from the traditional cat-and-mouse formats we’ve found ourselves stuck with lately.

Laterally, the fabled Great Uncle Bartholomew finally makes an appearance and is one o...more

At the beginning of May, Cal finds himself in a straight jacket at Leechwood Insane Asylum. Everyone thinks he is Ben Galloway and Sligo has devised some evil plan to keep him here and get the information he wants out of Cal. Luckily, once again Boges and Winter come to his rescue and help him escape...he needs to get to Uncle Bartholomew's house to get information about the Ormond Riddle and Ormond Singularity. Uncle Bart, Cal finds, is in poor health, but he helps him and believes him and give...more

May was the fifth book in the adventure series. In this book, Cal meets his great uncle Bartholomew and stays with him for a week. He has to leave when the thugs find him and he found out that he had a tracking devise under his skin he didn't know about. It was put there the first time he was captured. Can't wait to read the next book.

Picking up at the last installment's cliffhanger & keeping the pace screaming from there, Cal Ormond is spending the month of May in just as much trouble as ever, including his neverending life on the run from mysterious people out to get him, being trapped in an insane asylum under false pretences, & trying to make it to his great-uncle's in order to get some further information from him about all the craziness that has descended on his family & what it has to do with his late fathe...more

Okay, I didn't read this in German but it's the only copy that comes up here. May- Cal awakens tied up in a straitjacket in a mental hospital. His enemies have triumphed, at least for a little while. This is book #5 and the 5th book that I've read this week. They're each books with roughly 180 pages; each book, or month, part of a whole story as Cal hides out from those seeking to destroy him and his family, all the while trying to solve the family secret riddle. I can't imagine what else can po...more
Rachel
Still an exciting adventure filled with intrigue, mystery, plot twists, and action. Wonderfully created characters and descriptions bring it to life in just it few short pages. Loving learning more and more about this mystery and how anceint family history (probably fake history) is being brought into the story to affect the characters now. The things I have the most problems with in the books are the lying, stealing, and some of the violence (not graphic but I think the main character did somet...more

Far better than April, May springs up a lot more questions but some partial answers thanks to Great Uncle Barty.

hmm... karena ga ngikutin dari awal jadi agak kurang gimana gitu. ada beberapa hal yang mengganjal. soal si Cal yang gak nyadar kalo dia udah diimplan penyadap di punggungnya. Emangnya gak berasa apa? udah sampe bernanah gitu lagi. gue suka sama Ormond Riddle-nya yang bikin penasaran karena ga tau artinya, abis pake bahasa arsip zaman baheula. Jadi inget kuliah bahasa arsip ngebaca tulisan indah dari abad kapan tau... yang paling bikin gue terkesan itu rumahnya si paman-buyut Bartholomew... wuih...more

More animals in this one - a pack of guard dogs in this case. And a subplot involving twins!

Great Series. Really engaging - full of suspense.
Megan Birch
OMG!!!
This book was amazing. It is so gripping! I couldn't stop reading them.

This boy called Cal Ormond lost his father through some un-known diseasse. He takes over what his father was trying to discover which has run through the family. All the way through the series people are after cal and his friends Boges and Winter. Each time they find more out about the Ormand Singularity something bad happens.

You must read these books! :)

The countdown continues for Callum. Thank goodness he has made it this far. With everything he has had to deal with, it is amazing he has survived this long.

I have had some reports of school libraries that have a huge wait list for this series from their kids. Whether you have a reluctant reader or not, this series will definitely grab their attention. www.kidswantbooks.com

These books are usually good for a quick read full of fun and suspense, but this one was kind of boring. We did learn some new things as Cal finally made it to his Great Uncle's house, but nothing has been resolved so far. It seems like we take a half step forward and 3 giant steps back. I am hoping that eventually one of these books will tie up some things before starting new ones.
Robert Conn
I really liked this book. It made me feel like I was on the run from the police with Cal. I would recommend this book for people who like action and adventure. But if you are going to read it you should read the first four books first. Gabriella Lord really knows how to write a series of books at make you want to read the next book. That is my review of Conspiracy 365 May.
Jean
I keep wondering how the author is going to come up with a new cliff-hanger for the end of each book as we go along. So far he is managing fine. Escaping in an untested home-made jet and then having to crash land and escape the fiery cockpit is how we ended this time. I have to say I am "warming" up to these books. :)

May(Conspiracy 365 #5)

I like this book because it is action packed and breath taking.
it it packs a punch in the series as our little friends try to unfold a great riddle.

I like the story line and where its heading, I've enjoyed it so far and don't won't it to end. I like the series book cover colors and the design.

This book was ok but was extremely boring until Boges and Winter rescues Cal. There is some good action but not much. A little suspence in this book. The worst one of the series so far. 3.8 is what I give it.
Kasey
Pretty darn good. Just when I thought Cal wouldn't be able to work his was out of this one he does. I love meeting new characters and I hope that they continue to help Cal out.
Andi Garbett
A book that starts off well and gets better. Couldn't put it down for the last 90 pages! Brilliant book
Dakota
Can't wait to read June so gripping will he be caught? How did he get out? so many questions.
Molly Panzer
So, I just keep going. hard to imagine seven more of them. This one seemed pretty exciting.
Gracie La
I can't believe that he's been set up and been told he is some one else!

Her first two manuscripts ended up composting the tomatoes at her market garden – another attempt to make a living – but the...more
