.:Review & Giveaway - BOOK Created:.

I am a self proclaimed book worm. 

Along with my love of reading comes a love of reading series. 

I've already read and shared with you two out of three books in a series by Cindy Hogan. The first book was Watched and the second book was Protected. Cindy's third book in the series is Created, and I jumped at the chance to review the book and share it with you!

Created (Watched, #3)

Here's the book synopsis:

"A spy school.
A choice.
A destiny discovered.

Ari and her friends find themselves in an independent spy school in Belgium, Bresen Academy. Test scores reveal her true abilities and the director wants to send her onto to more advanced training school immediately. She is given a two week reprieve to explore the school's training program and hopefully make amends with both Reese and Marybeth. Despite her lack of advanced training, the director convinces Ari she would be the best fit for a mission that surfaces in Prague with a group calling themselves Division 57. Uncertain, but wanting to please, she agrees. She quickly discovers there is nothing easy about being a spy and finds her very life on the line."

Doesn't that right there intrigue you? 

I started reading this book right before I went out of town, thinking I'd read it while on vacation, but it caught me right away and I ended up finishing it before I even left! 

I feel like Cindy's writing has matured throughout this series, and it was fun to catch up with the same characters from the other books. The story is fun and exciting, but there are also the normal feelings and insecurities that we all face and can relate to. 

Cindy is having a launch party for Created this Thursday, October 25th at The King's English Bookshop in Sugarhouse, so if you're local, you'll want to head on over! There will be cupcakes from Ambroisa for the first 50 guests, and door prizes! Don't miss it!

Wanna win a copy of Created?

You will get your choice of ebook or print book if you win!
