Overview

Map of Fates (Conspiracy of Us Series #2) by Maggie Hall

“A Da Vinci Code–style thriller for teens? Yes please.”—TeenVogue.com. The second book in the Conspiracy of Us series is perfect for fans of Ally Carter and The Selection series. 

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's on the 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, making her question what she believes at every turn. In the world of the Circle, is anyone what they seem?

Really enjoyed Book 2 in the series, but a warning. I'm an adult who enjoys Y.A. novels, and frequently passes books along to some of my students. I was a little worried that this book was a bit of a stronger-PG-13 than I'd typically feel comfortable recommending for younger teens.

An amazing sequel. I loved the development of Avery's relationships with the other characters. A quick-moving plot that is highly engaging.

Map of Fates is one of my all time favorite books. The constant action and sudden plot twists keep your heart pumping. The love triangle is one of the best ever written, with two incredible leading men. Who knew that a "swim" by a boat and tears in a train could create something so real. You will root for the complex characters. Maggie Hall conveys their emotions in an authentic way. This is not your Cinderella story. Up until the last words you will never see what is coming and you will be reaching for the next book. As an adult and a teacher, I recommend this book to everyone 12 and up!

If you weren't completely feeling The Conspiracy of Us, I can easily tell you Map of Fates is so much better. It had such iconic scenes that I don't want to spoil, so I'll just say that the underwater scene and the train scene were some of the best moments of YA tbh. The characters develop a lot more in this book, and you learn a lot more about them. Mysteries are uncovered and solved as Avery and her friends travel the world in search of the answer to the prophecy that the Circle have been trying to solve. Betrayals and plot twists unravel, and you won't see them coming. Map of Fates is an amazing sequel that easily overcomes the first one, and the ship(s) alone will make you want to reread.

I absolutely loved this book! As her mother's life was on the line, Avery had to deal with the pressure and run around the world to get her out of there. With the help of Stellan, Jack and others she travelled for the clues that were going to change everything.Avery transported us so magically and completely through the ruins of Greece, the scents of India and the mysteries of Venice. It was lovely to see her grow and get more control of her own life as she slowly gave her trust to those around her. Romance and suspense were at the rendez-vous making the book all the more exciting. Who knew Stellan was actually a decent guy? I was hooked and couldn't set the book down. I loved it and can't wait for the final book to come out!!!

yes yes yes!! I love when books make me do 360s on characters and now I am in love with Stellan! During the first book I was all for Jack and Avery completely, but now... geez! This book was a great follow up to the first one, and I'm getting really excited for Avery's growth into someone who is more capable of defending and fighting for herself. I think this will be a great series in terms of the arcs of different characters and I'm really excited to see where their storylines go in the next and FINAL book!!

“Correction,’ Elodie said, taking her phone back. ‘We’re going to have to heist it. From the Cannes Film Festival.” Map of Fates is in a word, electrifying. Author Maggie Hall delves into a world of espionage, fashion, mystery, and romance with an elegance few authors in literature have been able to achieve. The way she incorporates these elements into a novel (along with her unbelievably dazzling setting details) makes other, more experienced writers pale in comparison. I’ve never been out of the country before, but after reading Map of Fates, I feel like an experienced traveler. Without leaving the comfort of my own bed, I was able to visit the islands of Greece, the cities of London and Paris, and even the vibrant culture of India in a single day. Reading one of Maggie Hall’s books is like stepping away from the sometimes complicated and stressful reality we all live in into an idyllic dream chock-full of pristine blue water, striking landscapes, incredibly cute boys, and magnificent color that makes the Pasadena Rose Parade seem inadequate. The novel is anything but predictable and somehow manages to top the first book in the Conspiracy of Us series (if that’s even possible). I tried to make the book last more than two days, but ended up pulling an all-nighter to finish it. Totally worth it. Oh, and you know that saying, “Never judge a book by its cover”? Definitely doesn’t apply here.

I couldn't get through this book fast enough and I wish I had taken my time with it! Luckily I can, and will, re-read it many times over. I am in LOVE with this series, each twist and turn makes so much sense and while a few were excellently foreshadowed, there are a couple things that made my jaw hit the floor! This is a great follow up to the first book and it leaves you begging Maggie Hall for book three. I'm also on the edge of my seat looking up stuff about Alexander the great and Paris, I've been to Paris, but never to Maggie Hall's Paris.

This YA novel is one of my favorite books at the moment! Hall knows exactly how to keep the readers guessing and does just that with every unexpected twist and turn that comes Avery's way as she ventures further and further into a new and intimidating world. With interesting new characters and plot twists at every corner, this book is sure to have you turning the pages deep into the night.

This book showed me sequeals can be as good as the first! The novel was very much a Team Stelan vs Team Jack, and I'm thrilled Team S is winning! Can't wait for the next one.

This book defines an action-packed, thrilling, drama-filled book, perfect for most pre-teens and/or young adults. Though I wasn't pleased by some of the choices the main character, Avery, made (team Jack forever!), the book was very pleasing and lived up to many of my expectations. +Vivid touch, sense, smell, feel

This book was just sooo awesome !!! Perfect. When I read the first book it was so good and I was waiting for this one and when I bought it, I was so exciting and honestly it was beyond my expectations. I went through all the possible emotions and I loved it so much !! I loved also the romance which take shape in MoF, but no matter who Avery will chose at the end I think that my heart will be broken because I love both. Even if, my heart is more for Jack because in all the love-triangle the first guy never win it always the second and/or the bad guy. So, I'm waiting impatiently for the next book. And I think that everyone must read Maggie Hall ! She is amazing ! (Sorry if my english is bad, I'm not an english girl…) Last words : LE livre à lire absolument ! Juste PARFAIT.

Original Review Link: http://asdreamsaremade.com/2016/03/book-tuesday-map-of-fates/ Slayed. This book completely slayed me. Map of Fates picks up right where The Conspiracy of Us left off. Avery has two weeks to save her mother from the Order and find Napoleon’s lost tomb. In order to do that, she is forced to make some choices she’d rather not which lead her in a daring chase across the world from Paris to India to Greece. Meanwhile her feelings for Jack and Stellan are confusing enough without having a prophecy hanging over her head. Will she make the right choice in time or will her enemies choose it for her? The action. The suspense. The tension. Dead. I really enjoyed The Conspiracy of Us, but I think Map of Fates is my favorite of the series so far. Avery finally starts to trust herself and decide what she wants instead of being led around by other people. I mean there’s still a bit of that happening, but not for the whole novel and not to the extent it was in the first book. Jack. Oh Jack. Stop making stupid macho-man decisions! I was all about Team Jack in the last book, but now I am SO TORN. I loved Stellan in this book. I feel like we see a side of him we didn’t really get to in the last installment. I’m usually one to roll my eyes at the whole love triangle thing but this one is just so complicated that I don’t know how I’m supposed to feel. The supporting characters in Elodie, Luc, and Collette were strong, especially Elodie. I loved her attitude and brassiness. The plot was fast-paced, twisty, satisfying, tense, and all around one huge ride. I could not put this book down. Maggie Hall has definitely upped the stakes in this book and it was reflected in the plot. The ending left you on the edge of your seat and I seriously can’t wait to see how Avery’s story concludes. I highly recommend this series if you’re looking for some YA that’s original, historically intricate, intense, and one that will keep you reading long into the night.

This. Book. Is. Beautiful. I mean, I love the first one with all of my heart. I thought it was rich and colorful and thrilling, the kind of book that grabs your hand and drags you after it so that you're helpless to do anything but follow. I stand by that analysis one hundred percent. But book two––my *goodness*. What Map of Fates did for me was cement Maggie Hall as a must-read writer. I want to (and will!) read any books that she writes in the future. Map of Fates is intoxicating. It's the kind of book you start reading and then forget you have other things to do and end up finishing it in a day (which is exactly what I did). The talent it takes to weave a world like this with characters to die for is nearly inconceivable. This book in a sentence: Original, stunning, makes you want to drop everything and travel the globe. 1000/10 would recommend this book and book one (The Conspiracy of Us). Thank you for this book, Maggie Hall. Thank you.

When I received Map of Fates by Maggie Hall I immediately realized I still needed to read The Conspiracy of Us and it was for no other reason than the fact that I just hadn’t gotten to it. I honestly have no idea why I waited so long to start this series as it has non-stop action and intrigue…all stuff I love. Map of Fates picks up where The Conspiracy of Us left off. Avery has figured out what she is supposed to be destined for and how she fits into the Circle but she isn’t prepared to just do whatever her family wants her to. I loved that at this point she is still growing into her new role and we get to see her change over the course of this book (even more so than she did in book one). As she learns who she can trust and who she can’t she isn’t someone who will just take things at face value by the end of this book and unfortunately it is because she has been burned over and over by these people. As Avery jumps around the world with Jack, Stellan, and the rest of the crew, she is looking to solve the bigger mystery not only to save her mother but to also protect herself. What I loved about what Hall did with this book was that she took us around the world right with Avery. We got to run through museums and hang out on a boat in Cannes right alongside her. I thought Hall did a fantastic job of creating the environment around her so that it felt like I was there too. I admit, I am officially in the Jack camp and I was absolutely waiting for the shoe to drop throughout this entire book. There is no question here that Avery has feelings for both guys (at least no question to me) and it was pretty obvious that things were not going to be as easy for Avery in the relationship department as I was hoping. Regarding secondary characters – I thought bringing Avery’s family into the mix the way she did was great. I know that is vague…sorry, not sorry. I don’t want to give anything away around the “family” dynamics here. Just know that while Avery is traveling around to meet all these Circle heirs, she is not out of danger. This was a great book two and the story definitely moved forward. It was great to dive into this series and read books one and two back to back because I rarely get the opportunity to read series books back to back. It was a nice change of pace to not have to wait for the next book but now…I have to wait for book three. Oh well – I can have a bit of patience. If you are looking for a book that will take you on a wild ride and have you on the edge of your seat trying to figure out what is going to happen next, definitely consider checking this one out. I enjoyed it (both books actually) and am definitely looking forward to the next book.

This was much better than the first one. I again had some trouble connecting with Avery. She's still a bit whiny, but she's going through some things, so it makes sense. There's some definite growth from her and by the end of the book, she seems to have the potential to be a formidable opponent. My main complaint was the back and forth with the boys. That got old pretty quickly. This time around had me rooting for one of them right away and I'm hoping I get the outcome I want. Overall, a lot of action, a lot of answers, a lot of twists I didn't see coming, and one hell of an ending. I can't wait to see how it all ends.
