My Review: I. Loved. This. Book. First off, a shout-out to the amazing Ally Carter: Thank you SO much for A) writing a cross over, and B) being nice enough make it available for free download! You made a lot of fan-girls happy today. :) Anyway, I wasn’t sure how much I’d like this, but I shouldn’t have worried. Ally Carter knew exactly what she was doing…and this book was amazing. ♥
When I first saw “Macey and Hale” I admit it, I was scared. Not to worry crazy fan-girls of the world! Ally Carter is a genius. I thoroughly enjoyed the character interaction between the two series’, it was fascinating, fun, and very well-written.
The plot was amazing, a perfect mesh of the two worlds, and I loved every second of it. It was exciting, thrilling, and kept me (digitally) flipping pages as fast as physically possible. It took me a little under an hour to read this novella, and I think that’s one of the things I liked the most about it. It was short, yes, but the story wasn’t rushed at all, and it was a great read. Oh, and don’t even get me started on the ending! It was was incredible. Everything about it.
To Sum it up: A fun, short read that will keep you at the edge of your seat. The writing was quite well done, and the character continuity was perfect. Did I like this book? Heck, yeah! Recommended age: 10+.
