All Fall Down

All Fall Down – Ally Carter – Embassy Row #1 – Scholastic – Published 20 January 2015



A new series of global proportions — from master of intrigue, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Ally Carter.

This exciting new series from NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Ally Carter focuses on Grace, who can best be described as a daredevil, an Army brat, and a rebel. She is also the only granddaughter of perhaps the most powerful ambassador in the world, and Grace has spent every summer of her childhood running across the roofs of Embassy Row.

Now, at age sixteen, she’s come back to stay–in order to solve the mystery of her mother’s death. In the process, she uncovers an international conspiracy of unsettling proportions, and must choose her friends and watch her foes carefully if she and the world are to be saved.

My thoughts

Mind. Blowing. This book is epic. Intense. Amazing.

Grace is certain she saw her mother murdered three years ago. It’s just that no one believes her. Moving to the embassy to live with her ambassador grandfather was supposed to be a new start for her. But killers are resurfacing, friends and foes are startling in their numbers and Grace’s past is catching up with her.

All Fall Down has so many twists and turns I could hardly keep up. It also has a great cast of characters. I can’t wait to see where this series goes next. There is obviously a lot more to the story that we are yet to uncover.
