Sent to London for their next mission, Huntley and Ari are guests at Malcolm Prescott’s home, where Ari is asked to join a secret group called The Society, and Huntley learns more about her “father” Ares Von Allister. Spy Girl was trained not to have emotional entanglements, but Huntley is learning that it’s hard to survive in the real world without them. As she uncovers hidden truths about her past, the knowledge leaves her reeling and questioning everything. She’s going to have to trust someone, and it’s not going to be Black X. So she goes against her training and forms relationships—caring, trusting, and, maybe, even loving. But relationships are dangerous for a spy. Particularly one who will be facing her most challenging mission to date. Tasked with getting close to the illusive Money Man, she will be forced to delve into a seedy underworld that will threaten her very existence.

4.25 out of 5 stars

Starting where we left off in the Eagle the pace of this book is spot on and while the mood has been somewhat light in previous books The Society digs into some much darker issues.  Not to mention our beloved heroine Huntley is in a bit of an emotional crisis - mainly because she has all these emotions and reactions to situations and she was trained not to be emotional, not to make emotional connections and now that they've started the floodgates are wide open.  Plus add in the development of her and Ari realizing they're actually twins!  To say Huntley's world has been turned upside down would be a little bit of an understatement.

Now let's talk love interest...Huntley and Lorenzo's relationship continues to deepen.  While she is adamant things don't go to a physical level for fear of being to emotionally attached to Lorenzo what Huntley doesn't have a grasp on is that she is already in love with this man, unconsciously she has already attached herself to the prince emotionally.  And I'll let you in on a little secret - I LOVE these two characters together.  They balance one another really well - I really hope she figures out a way to let him in and give this thing between the two of them a real chance.

Huntley's mission this time around puts her in a crossroads - forced into a really dark situation she comes face to face with a real life monster and the whole situation impacts her in such a meaningful way.  Jillian's writing of this particular scene and the aftermath is incredible.  She paints such a rich picture giving readers a truly vivid image of a very real danger.  I am excited to see how this mission impacts Huntley in the books to come - one thing's for sure you cannot go through something like that and it not affect you going forward.

As always when the last page was turned my mouth was left hanging wide open - I am desperate to find out what happens in the very last scene and I really hope we don't have to wait very long.  This is such a great series, with each installment the story takes you deeper and the twists keep coming.  The only thing I'd request if I could would be a brief couple of paragraphs at the beginning of each book just to "refresh" your mind as to all that's happened.  Well done Jillian Dodd!
