Two weeks. 

That’s how long it took for Avery West’s ordinary life to change forever: In two weeks, she discovered she was heiress to a powerful secret society known as the Circle, learned her mother was taken hostage by the Circle’s enemies, and fell for a boy she’s not allowed to love, just as she found out another was her unwelcome destiny. 

Now, Avery crosses oceans

Easiest 5 stars I've given this year.

Also, my heart.

My feelings.


Just leave me alone.

This picture doesn't do the cover the justice it deserves. Its so pretty! I want to inhale it in one sitting down.

This sequel was so exciting! More world travel, more clues, more (believable) romance, more uncertain allies. Still wish I was connecting more with the characters (I think I'm bitter about how the mom character is used as a huge plot motivator when we literally don't know her at all and couldn't care less) but for the most part this gave me what I felt the first book was lacking! ...more

Five stars for Stellan. Three for everyone else.

Ugh, Avery is just so childish.

Although I low-key loved the boat scene.

Sequel Syndrome strikes again. Alas, Map of Fates was, sadly, a disappointment. My excitement and almost-childish awe of the first book dissipated, because the glamour of The Conspiracy of Us somehow failed to etch into its continuation, bringing the dull instead. However, there were two things that somewhat saved me from rating this one poorly: the killer second half and, most importantly, Stellan.

The first half of the book was bland. Flat. Meh. Sigh-inducing. Eye roll worthy. Frustration trig

Update 13.03.2015: WE HAVE A NAME!!! MAP OF FATES! Sounds intresting I'm wondering if it somehow explains how their fates are interwined?

I'm torn about this book. It rather dreamily contains elements that I am admittedly fond of, including conspiracies, Russian boys (hah!), glamorous international travel, and some rather swoony scenes.

On the other hand, there's a major element that made me uncomfortable, and I don't know how to process that. (view spoiler)

Someone...anyone, gimme this book already! I've been attempting to build a time machine to jump into the future to get my hands on Map of Fates .

This is like one of those books where the love triangle is pretty much not shitty

Okay, there's only so much I can or want to say this early, because Maggie's my CP and I got to read this reallllly early (MAJOR PERK OF LIFE), and I know it'll have changed a lot by the time it's in a finished version, BUT, three things I already love so much I know any version of this would be five stars for me:

1. Avery's character arc. I loved watching Avery grow in The Conspiracy of Us, but that's from "ordinary girl" to, well, spoiler alert. But this book is about her fine tuning, and takin

An awesome follow up to the first book. The story and characters are developed so much more in this one!
As you can see in my review of book 1, I adored the story that Maggie wove. It ended on such a strong point, that I was dying to get my hands on the sequel, and finally bought it when I was in America in March. The events of Map of Fates take place not long after The Conspiracy of Us ended. Avery, Jack, and Stellan are searching for more clues to the lost tomb of Alexander, and know that the Order are bearing down on them at every turn. They've been given a two week reprieve from the Order, but ...more
This book was so fun! Definitely a great sequel to The Conspiracy of Us! There is travel and romance and excitement galore. Maggie's writing has great pacing, and she knows just how much description to add to ground you in each foreign setting without the story feeling bogged down in details.

Map of Fates is a slim sequel, but I think it set up for an exciting finale. Can't wait to see where Avery, Stellan, Jack, Elodie, and crew go from here!

Map of Fates was ultimately way better read than the first book, and after that ending I'm curious to see how this series will end.

I still think some things just don't quite make sense, it's still pretty much silly read at times(though not nearly as much as book one), and I'm not really invested in any of the characters, there's also way too much present love-triangle and the heroine'S damn indecisiveness about the two guys, yet..

I'm le sad. I was so pleasantly surprised by the first book, but this one was a let down. WAY too focused on the love triangle aspect for my taste.

This was much better than the first one.

I again had some trouble connecting with Avery. She's still a bit whiny, but she's going through some things, so it makes sense. There's some definite growth from her and by the end of the book, she seems to have the potential to be a formidable opponent.

My main complaint was the back and forth with the boys. That got old pretty quickly. This time around had me rooting for one of them right away and I'm hoping I get the outcome I want.

Overall, a lot of

Things I'm looking forward to:

-Avery being a boss
-Jack/Stellan bickering
-Elodie and more umbrella-knives
-The Mummy/Indiana Jones style tomb hunting
-Kissing (probably?)
-Finding out how much Avery's mom knows

Okay, so Map of Fates continues the over-the-top conspiracy theories mixed with globe-trotting and dangerous adventures. People keep dying, and the plot twists just keep hitting you but more importantly, the kissing. I'm just here for the kissing and... the more than kissing.

Avery seemed more grounded and logical in this. Also, Jack and Stellan moved beyond just hot, mysterious boys thankfully as we learned more about them. I only lose my cool for Stellan though my
Definitely a step up from the first book. I'm excited to see where the last book goes.

When I received Map of Fates by Maggie Hall I immediately realized I still needed to read The Conspiracy of Us and it was for no other reason than the fact that I just hadn’t gotten to it. I honestly have no idea why I waited so long to start this series as it has non-stop action and intrigue…all stuff I love.

Map of Fates picks up where The Conspiracy of Us left off. Avery has figured out what she is supposed to be destined for and how she fits into the Circle but she isn’t prepared to just do w

Okay, but, could at least 50% of contemporaries be this outlandish and this fun?

I've waxed poetic about fantasy squads for years on end, but there's something to be said about a contemporary squad banding together to, um... channel Napoleon and Alexander the Great?

It's exactly as entertaining as it sounds.
This has somehow turned from a stereotypical young adult series to an astounding, jaw-dropping read. Map of Fates was full of so many incredible and unpredictable plot twists that I'm suffering from proverbial whiplash. I need more Avery and Stellan right this second! ...more

I actually really liked it, like in the aftermath. At first I was feeling a real 4 star vibe but its not a 4.5 star vibe so lets make it 0.25 more.

(I want to put it out there that this review is literally just me spewing (great imagery) out thoughts. It's written in the same manner as how I talk, which is horribly ungrammatical and most definitely ineloquent. And I know, I have a problem with the word--like. I've got to let it go.)

If I thought I loved the first book, then I don't even know what feelings I have towards this one. The second installment is even bigger and better and more adventurous than the first.

We pick up a couple weeks following the conclusion of the first novel. I love when authors do this because it allows our characters to have a new goal in mind and helps beat that second book slump. This second book definitely did not have second book slump. AT ALL

Holy shit! This was actually really, really good!

The Conspiracy of Us was rather silly but still enjoyable while Map of Fates shines with all its might. I'm so glad I decided to read the second book. It's a better, improved model. I literally have nothing bad to say which is strange for me.

Love triangle was finally resolved and I couldn't be happier. While reading The Conspiracy of Us I wasn't sure if either one of the guys was a good fit for Avery but Maggie Hall gave us a couple of solid sce

I am shocked! And not happy at all what Maggie Hall did to that one figure. But I fear it had to be done – the plot required something like that to happen, otherwise it wouldn´t been logic at all.

I am in love; in love with that cover. Yes, any shade of pink or rose isn´t my thing, but this one looks really beautiful. And in combination with the silver and the motive I think that cover is one of my favorite for this year.

One of my favourite books last year was Maggie Hall's debut novel The Conspiracy of Us. A thrilling page-turner and international caper, it was the kind of book that captivated me from beginning to end... and left me desperately yearning for the next book to already be in my hands. How could the sequel live up to my high expectations? I needn't have worried, though. Maggie Hall delivers a stunning sequel filled with new shocking revelations, more international locales, and stolen kisses that pra ...more
