Summary (from Penguin Random House Canada):
“A Da Vinci Code–style thriller for teens? Yes please.”—TeenVogue.com
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 crosses oceans in private jets to 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.
But at the end of a desperate hunt from the islands of Greece to the red carpet at Cannes comes a discovery that not only changes everything, but could bring the whole world to its knees. And now Avery is forced to face the truth: In the world of the Circle, no one is what they seem.
I absolutely loved reading Maggie Hall's YA debut The Conspiracy of Us earlier this year, so it's no wonder that I'm really excited to read the sequel, Map of Fates! Avery has suddenly been thrust into a world of secret societies and immense wealth and power, but who can she trust to stand by her side? More international locales. More mystery. More suspense! I'm really hoping Map of Fates delivers a thrilling follow-up to the crazy events that concluded The Conspiracy of Us. Why is March 2016 sooooo far away? I need this book right now!!
