Save the Prince. Save the World. Spy Girl.

Huntley Von Allister's cover is firmly in place.
She's brilliantly completed her first four missions.
But she is done.

Done trying to untangle the mystery of what got her mother killed.
And very, very done with love.

So much information in this book. People you think are dead aren’t? More conspiracy’s?? Every time I think I know what is going on the next chapter proves me wrong. Could NOT put this book down. Already can’t wait till the next one. Still pulling for Huntley and Lorenzo ❤️ Love Jillian Dodd

4.5 out of 5 stars

Thank goodness this book is finally out! I have a love hate relationship with cliff hangers. I love how they leaving me wanting more while at the same time find myself frustrated with having to wait what feels like forever for the next installment to release. I couldn't wait to jump right in and see what would happen with Lorenzo and Huntley now that the Queen announced, without warning, an engagement between Lorenzo and Lizzie. Secretly what I most hoped were these two charact

And just like that....we’ve been completely thrown again. Wow. Wow. Wow. I don’t really know if I can even say anything. This installment of the series is not only crazy intense, it’s a page turner. It’s full of emotions, but also suspense. I’m blown away. But then again, I’m always quite blown away by the stories JD writes. She is brilliant.

The Dauntless KILLED it. IMO this is the BEST book of the series, yet. I didn't know what to expect with this series, but I am so in love with it. Huntley

This is such a fun addictive series you need to read. I got so excited to see the next installment on my kindle. After the fourth book ended I was already needing the next book and this one did not disappoint. These books are full of action and have you wondering what is going to happen next.

Thankfully this book picks up where The Valiant left off. We get some answers but are still left with some questions. Huntley is the best heroine, she is smart and caring and trying to save a country and ke

I could not wait for this one to come out and I devoured it as soon as it did. Now somehow I completely forgot to get on and review it when I finished so shame on me.

I was left biting my fingernails with how book four was left and I could not wait to see what happened next. I will admit I was a little disappointed I didn't get more Lorenzo and Huntley but by no means was I disappointed by the book. We learn more about the underground organization and slowly learn more about Huntley and the piec

Jillian did extensive research to make this series undeniably real. Huntley a girl who is smart as whip, fast as a horse and as stylish as any celebrity with good taste.We see more of certain characters personalities come through and some who we knew but now love as they’ve grown. Said “trust no one,” but what does a girl do when it just gets to much and is running out of time She learns to play like the men.
The characters from the beginning start to come more to life and friend

More surprises and twists are revealed in The Dauntless. At the beginning, Huntley is recovering from a betrayal and goes rogue to try to uncover whose behind the Society and what their plans are that ended with her mother's death. This book was a page turner that kept me guessing from beginning to end. I actually couldn't stop thinking about all of the secrets uncovered after the end of the story and kept pondering new theories. Even though Huntley's main mission in the story is not just nation ...more

Leaves you guessing and speechless at the same time.

By far one of the best series I've read in along time. I absolutely love Huntley story. Intriguing and amazing always keeps me guessing. Cliffhanger I need more now. I'm still recovering from reading this book.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

4.5 stars!!!

“In most seafaring cultures, they say the captain should go down with his ship. I love my country, but I fear it’s sinking, and it will take me under.”

This series is so addictive, every time a new instalment comes out I am on it and read through at a rate of knots. As with all previous instalments, this book is action-packed, fast-paced, addictive and all-consuming and the attention to detail was phenomenal. The amount of researc

Thrills. Friendship. Heartbreak. Forgiveness.

This is the 5th installment in the Spy Girl series and each book after the first gets better and better. This book starts where the last left off, but this time... HUNTLEY IS CALLING THE SHOTS!

Her mission after quitting the Black X is to retrace her steps and remember her mother in the midst of a shredded heart. Yes, I said shredded. Not broken or crushed. I said shredded like Lorenzo stuck it through a paper shredder because he did.

I’ve been a huge fan of the Spy Girl Series by Jillian Dodd, but have taken a break until more books released so I could binge on them again, and now I’m back into it and The Dauntless was just what I needed and more!

Picking up where The Valiant left off, Lorenzo and Huntley are torn apart after finally finding happiness, and Huntley is on a mission of her own. What I really loved about this book, was Huntley figuring things out for herself. Not playing by

Oh God’s sake! Whyyyyyyyy is this so repetitive?? Huntley is truly annoying with her mood swings towards a certain someone. Her reaction in the cliffy from the previous book was so immature, then she just carried onto her life but in the road she “forgave” him but couldn’t even call him or see him to talk about their issues?? And the first time they see each other personally she just runs to his arms without the anger she was supposed to harbor from his “secrets”? I’m so

Well, I love all of Jillian Dodd's work but I was late to discover this series. I read all 4 books before starting this one. So I wasn't like some readers who have been waiting for a while to find out what happens. But now I will be. This one leaves you with a nice big cliff hanger, Thanks Jillian! I hope our wait won't be too long because I am dying to figure out how this all pans out. There are so many secrets to still be figured out and we are on the tip of it all. But most importantly will a ...more

>Book Review – The Dauntless
>I am an independent reviewer. This book is the 5th in the Spy Girl series and ends in a cliffhanger. Hunter and Lorenzo get married in secret, but publicly engaged to others. Huntley is losing her likability for me. She has ‘G’ rated sleepovers with almost all of her male friends. The book states that she was practically brainwashed by her school to not feel anything emotionally towards others. Her journey in this series tries to tear that wall down. Her actions, whi

I absolutely love this series and the characters. It’s written with such a flow that the story vividly plays out live in your head as you are reading. I can easily picture each destination and scene because of the amount of detail the author gives us.

So much happened and was revealed in this installment that I’m still trying to wrap my head around it. I felt like this book was a turning point for Huntley, she is finally finding herself and doing things her way. We get to know and fall in love w

As always I loved the latest book by Jillian Dodd.

In this book Huntley decides she has had enough and has gone rogue, she will now be working for herself and getting the answers she wants.

Of course she is successful and we start to uncover more secrets and understand a bit more about the plan that starts in Montrovia, however as one question is answered more pop up in its place.

I was disappointed with the lack of Ari in this book as I like him as a character and it is nice to see Huntley’s in

Wow...just WOW! This series is addictive and this book was a page turner that I couldn't put down from page one. If you are a lover of action packed, what the heck is going on, oh man did that just happen reads...this series is for you. Jillian Dodd does her research and you can tell with the attention she pays to the little details. She also has the natural ability to paint a picture with words. You can see in your mind the places, clothes and people she writes about. And the action scenes, you ...more

If there was a crown for cliffhangers, Jillian would be the queen. Jillian's books are some of my favorites when I want something fun to read and she never disappoints. The Spy Girl series has so much going on that I just don't know how she keeps everything straight but she does and because of that this could easily be her best yet. You may leave one book with more questions than you went in but you can be sure all will be answered whether in the next book or by the end of the series. This is ho ...more

I couldn’t wait for this book to come out so I could see what Huntley was going to do after the bomb was dropped on her. I will have to say she shocked me (in a good way!)!

I have fallen in love with Lorenzo and Huntley and Chauncey! They are amazing characters. I wish we could have gotten more of Chauncey.

With each book I fall more for Lorenzo and wish for a happy ending with him and Huntley. But with his mom pushing him to marry Lizzy I’m not so sure who’s going to win. His norm? Or him?

Where on earth do I even begin writing this review!?!?! This book... this book left me absolutely speechless.

Like most of her books this left you wanting more. The end of this was something I DID NOT SEE COMING!!! This entire series you will have theories... suspicion... trying to figure out who did what, who is in charge. but the end! HOLY HELL ON WHEELS!

When it comes to series, I always feel skeptical as the first book is always the best and the rest are good, but not great and they don't ex

So this series is not one on my high lists of books to recommend...however, I've invested enough time into the series I still want to see how it ends. It's like watching a show that started off kinda cheesy but it was fun, and now you just want to know the ending. Writing is not strong, and the characters are sometimes worthy of actual eye rolls. Like every young adult is going to always be assessing their surroundings, yet is surprised by the most random things. It's a fine read, nothing outsta ...more

I don't know how it continues to get better and better but Jillian is a creative GENIUS!! I love Huntley ya'll!

It amazes me that after like, 7? years Jillian manages to keep me hanging on her every word. If you love suspense and plot twists, you’ll love this series. It always keeps you guessing, and you’re always surprised, and you’re always left wishing there was just a little bit more and you can’t wait until the next part comes out. I will truly be sad when this series is over because I’m enjoying it so much. I really can’t say anything specific without giving away spoilers this far in the series but ...more

Just when you think Jillian can't top the last book, she goes and leaves your jaw hanging on the ground!
Jillian's writing keeps you turning the pages, keeps you on your toes and then knocks you for a loop with a twist you never saw coming!
Her characters leave you imagining a life where you are living it in real time, not as a fantasy on the pages.
You can't go wrong when you pick up a Dodd book!
I can't wait to see what Jillian has in store for us on her next installation in this series!

Holy cow guys this has blowen me away!!!! The twist in this book were epic and Huntley’s character grown is nuts. I think I may love Daniels mum and really want her to be my mum. I hope so much that Huntley gets to keep that relationship. Huntley really surpasses everything in this book she goes from being a puppet just kinda blowing around to being an epic queen who stands on her own feet with her own morals and ideas and makes her decision then sticks to them.
