Review: The Spy Within by JA Cipriano

Title: The Spy Within, Meet Abby Banks #2The Spy Within

Author: JA Cipriano

Publisher: Amazon digital Services

Published: July 20th, 2015

Rating: 4/5

This is the second book in the series and continues the action packed adventures of Abby Banks. In this the government agency is still chasing after her as she learns more about her own biological family, her skills and the people who she knows. There’s double crossing, double dealing, enemies who are really friends and friends who are really enemies! Talk about a journey of discovery – and that says nothing about all the inventions, gadgets and gismos that she’ll also uncover.

Like in the first book, this has places being blown up, futuristic technology (including a very special motorbike), plenty of dangerous, life threatening situations to keep the reader on the edge of their seat. The story is well written, fast paced, with a great mix of science fiction, mysteries to be investigated, decisions to be made and a real roller coaster ride full of twists, turns and unexpected drops as Abby is the prey being sought but trying to stay free.

As in the first novel in this series, it is a great page turner and one I recommend to anyone who enjoys a whirlwind spy thriller with a sixteen year old girl at the centre of all the action. I do believe it is important to read the series in order, this isn’t a stand alone book and readers would probably struggle to enjoy this without knowing what happened in the first book.

Thanks to Sarah Canning for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Some people don’t believe in government conspiracies. They’re wrong.

When sixteen-year-old Abby Banks escaped from the clutches of her terrorist mother, she thought she was home free… and she would have been if the government agency tasked with protecting her hadn’t decided she was worth more dead than alive.

Now the only thing standing between Abby and freedom is the agency that kidnapped her as a young girl. No big deal, right?
