Fatal Exchange

About the book: For 19-year-old Christy Hadden, it’s life as usual as a spy, only this time in Paris, France. Her mission: retrieve a flash drive containing evidence that a high public official is working to destroy Paris. Pretty standard, until someone steals the drive from her. Forced to abandon her position protecting the informant, she goes after the thief, but returns empty handed—only to find her informant dead.

Christy's failure taints her reputation at Division and the director has lost all faith in her. But Christy isn't one to slink into the shadows. Alone and disgraced, she decides to track down the drive and solve the murder, not only to redeem herself as a spy, but to give meaning to her informant’s sacrifice, and perhaps even save Paris.

Suspenseful, with the right amount of romance, and awash with action, Fatal Exchange will send you on a thrill ride that will be hard to forget.

My review: Christy is one of my very favorite characters right now. I love the way she is so young, but she's amazingly good at almost everything, and she's made a name out there for herself as a spy. In this book she's in France when something goes horribly wrong with her current mission. The drive she's supposed to pick up is taken by the notorious pick pockets of Paris and the man she's supposed to pick it up from is killed. Things go from bad to worse when Christy is banished by the French Division director who doesn't like her to begin with and she knows that she's on her own to figure out how to get back the drive.

This book had me figuratively chewing my nails with wanting to know just what would happen to Christy, she hasn't been so on her own since Watched, does she really know enough to keep herself from getting killed. Watching her infiltrate the pick pockets and actually becoming one of them for a time was almost as painful for me as I know it would have been for her. I really loved a part near the end when she had a chance to basically get revenge on someone who wasn't kind to her, but she chose to basically rise above that and not go for the revenge. I love that she has that kind of character.

I love her team, Ace and Haluis were not willing to allow her to really be on her own, even though it meant that they would be in as much trouble as Christy if she got caught doing her own thing. 

This book is full of action and adventure. I love that there is a touch of romance, without the whole thing being romantic. I love that my teenage daughter loves this series just as much as I do, and that it's perfectly appropriate for her to read as well. This book, and really the whole series are amazingly well-written. You won't want to put them down! 

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
