Waiting on Wednesday (#11): Map of Fates by Maggie Hall




Author: Maggie Hall
Expected Release Date: March 8th, 2016
Publisher: Putnam Juvenile 
Status: The Conspiracy of Us #2

Synopsis (from Goodreads):

“A Da Vinci Code–style thriller for teens? Yes please.”—TeenVogue.com

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 in private jets to hunt for clues that will uncover the truth about the Circle, setting her mom and herself free before it’s too late. By her side are both the boys: Jack—steady, loyal, and determined to help her even at the expense of his own duty—and Stellan, whose connection to Avery grows stronger by the day despite her best intentions, making her question what she believes at every turn.
 


But at the end of a desperate hunt from the islands of Greece to the red carpet at Cannes comes a discovery that not only changes everything, but could bring the whole world to its knees. And now Avery is forced to face the truth: in the world of the Circle, no one is what they seem.

For someone that gave this book a three (or was it three and a half?) star rating, I'm actually really excited to pick up the sequel to The Conspiracy of Us next spring.

The first book did start off a little slow in the beginning, and it wasn't till half way in the book did I start liking the book and getting into the story. There's a lot of unresolved issues from book one, as well as a lot of relationships to be explored (and tested), all of which I'm excited to see happen. 

The only thing is: I'm scared. This book can either be really great or really, really bad. With an interesting plot, I feel like book two can make or break my love for the trilogy. But at the moment, I have a lot of hope for it.
