The Conspiracy of Us by Maggie Hall is first the series that is full of mystery. If you are fond of books like The Da Vinci Code or anything to do with deciphering codes and looking for treasure then this book is your cup of tea. I truly enjoyed this book as this is my first time reading this genre on the young adult side. The book started off quite well, the plot slowly thickens and then catches you by surprise. My attention is well kept for majority of the book as there were so much mystery involved. I would say that things happened in the book at a good pace, quite action packed throughout.
The characters were quite interesting, especially the male characters. There is so much to learn about them but the author only revealed a little to keep you hooked. The female protagonist is unexpected, though she started off naive but there was much growth to her in the book. Her interactions with the male characters certainly make this book an abundance of excitement. The emotions involved were captivating for me as you wonder with her about the boys.
Overall the book was a good start which I kinda felt that had a potential to be a movie. The pace was really good and the twists and turns were so unpredictable. I really loved the relationships of the characters. I'm quite excited to read the second book which I think will be good. I wonder how the relationships will further development and am really excited about the mystery behind the prophecy. I highly recommend this book to mystery lovers, treasure hunting lovers or readers who just enjoy a good adventure.
