I would give this book 4 for a review.
Katarina Bishop has worn a lot of labels in her short life, Friend, Niece, Daughter, Thief, but for the last two months she’s simply been known as the girl who robbed the greatest museum in the world. That’s why Kat isn’t surprised when she’s asked to steal the infamous Cleopatra Emerald so it can be returned to its rightful owners. There are only three problems. First, the gem is owned by the most secure auction house in the world. Second, since the fall of the Egyptian empire and the suicide of Cleopatra, no one who holds the emerald keeps it for long, and in Kat’s world, history almost always repeats itself. But it’s the third problem that makes Kat’s crew the most nervous and that is simply… the emerald is cursed.
** spoiler alert ** I loved this book more then the first. I loved story and also the dynamics between the character. It was also such a different type of story then book one. I am growing to love Kat character. Her crew is just the best group of people. I can not express my love for simon. I loved nick role in this book it was a nice surprise. It was such a fast pace novel and i really must read the next one soon. It will be so fun to see what side of the line Kat and her crew will be on next book. I just enjoyed the heist alot and also the internal struggle the Kat handled in this book. I crew to love Kat and her relationship with her boy. It was a fun, fast pace read and step up from book one.
