Constance Miller beseeches Kat to find and steal back an ancient gem, called the Cleopatra emerald, which Constance claims her parents rightfully discovered as archaeologists, but was stolen by their conniving young assistant. However, this is only where the story begins. Legend has it, the ancient stone is cursed. Despite her wounded ego and the deep-seated fear that she is destined to become like Margaret someday, Kat rounds up her teen team once more to fix her egregious mistake.
This book was even better than the first! The plot was more complex, the new characters more ambiguous and interesting, and I loved the angle of ancient Egyptian artifacts. Return to Book Page.

There are only three problems. After all she has her best friend—the gorgeous Hale—and the rest of her crew with her as they chase the Cleopatra around the globe, dodging curses, realizing that the same tricks and cons her family has used for centuries are useless this time.

I'd never found a reason to listen to a book rather than read it , because it just takes so much longer to finish. Also, I noticed that most people who love audio books tend to have a commute, and I'm never in a car without kids long enough to listen to anything. So, no reason for audio books. I started exercising And for a while, it was fun with Richard.
Eventually, however, I moved on to an aerobic walking video. Because I'm cool li This was my very first audio book! Because I'm cool like that. And also because it hurts my knees to even watch stuff like this: And as much as I benefit from the low impact exercise, the lady who does them is like Fran Drescher in yoga pants. Is your workout in a slump? Then come join us! God help me, for 45 minutes a day, part of my workout consisted of not throwing my shoe at the television.
Then one glorious morning at the library, I was introduced to a little something called Play-A-Way. Not by My Librarian , mind you. No, she was too busy collecting late fees probably from orphans! Not mad, Danielle, just disappointed And now, with tiny things that the kids these days are calling earbuds , I can block the goat-like bleating of Walking Chick's voice, while still making my doctor happy with my daily dose of aerobics, AND I get to listen to a story while I do it!
So, was Uncommon Criminals any good, you ask? I grabbed it because it was available that day at the library, and not because I'm a big fan of Ally Carter's series. Having said that, I think this was a cute story. Not fantastic, but cute. I had a hard time swallowing that these kids were good enough to fly all around the world and con professionals.
But, then again, I'm waaay outside the age range for teeny-bopper heist stories. And this is definitely a teeny-bopper story. I do love YA, but this isn't a series that I would recommend to adult readers. But it is something that I would recommend to my daughter in a year or so, which says something. Recommended for teens.

I haven't read the book yet, obviously, but I know that this is going to be a good one. The only thing I will be disappointed with if she doesn't have is some kissing with Hale and Kat, I mean, it's soooooo obvious that they like each other View all 18 comments.
After successfully stealing back four paintings from the seemingly impenetrable Henley museum and returning them to their rightful owners, Kat has acquired a Robin Hood-like reputation.
Therefore, she is only mildly surprised when an old lady, the rightful owner of the Kleopatra emerald, asks her to steal the supposedly cursed stone and return it to her family. Still feeling lucky after several well-done jobs, Kat shuts down her instincts and accepts the job. Hale is the voice of reason, very much against it, but as always, he goes where Kat goes, regardless of the consequences. The crew gets conned by a better thief and they must find a way to outsmart that thief and retrieve what they lost.
His contacts open all doors, the crew travels in private jets, and if they need a yacht near Monte Carlo, well of course he has one ready! I loved how devoted he was to Kat in Heist Society, but in Uncommon Criminals, he went from being devoted to being a doormat at times.
Kat too seems to have changed for the worst. After the Henley job, she developed not just a reputation, but an overabundance of ego as well. She had reason to, up to a point, but she went a bit too far by taking sole credit for something that was a team effort.

Of course, sometimes we get a bit of drama-llama situations and questionable choices made by our interesting characters but overall, this entire trilogy is entertaining. Hale is cute, though, I love him. Jun 05, Nic rated it really liked it Shelves: For a bit of W. Hale eye candy go to http: Luck is a strange thing in the life of any thief and halfway decent con man.
What is it that keeps the mark from counting the till or the guards from looking up at precisely the wrong moment? Kat had learned at a very young age that luck is for the amateur, the lazythose who are unprepared and unskilled. And yet she also knew that luck, like most things, cannot be truly missed until it i For a bit of W.
And yet she also knew that luck, like most things, cannot be truly missed until it is also truly gone.
When it comes to sequels they can be a scary thing especially when you love the first book.
But Uncommon Criminals is just as good as Heist Society. Once again Ally Carter offers all the right elements for another fun read - clever writing, a quick and suspenseful plot and entertaining characters.
Again there were plenty of twists in this cleverly constructed plot making it impossible to put Uncommon Criminals down. And when I did I was thinking about all the ways Kat could possibly get herself out of trouble this time.
I also love how Carter brilliantly describes the settings. She really knows how to capture the beautiful places like Monte Carlo the crew visits and you can picture everything perfectly thanks to Carter's wonderful writing.
Kat is a genuine and likeable character. She is independent, smart and stubborn. In this instalment Kat has to learn to that she doesn't have to do everything on her own even if she doesn't need help. That it is okay to want help from her crew. Kat showed a lot growth. I also love the distinctive bunch of secondary characters.
As soon as I started the book I was eagerly awaiting when Hale, Gabrielle, Simon or the Bagshaw brothers would pop up in the story and when they did they didn't disappoint. I know fans of the first book will be wondering about the romance. Does anything happen with Hale? Well all I can say is the spark is still there and you will have to read the book I recommend immediately. Overall, this is one addictive series that I highly recommend.
I really hope Carter writes a Heist Society 3.
Feb 09, C. Cook rated it it was amazing Shelves: I didn't know it was possible for me to like a book more than Heist Society Book Those were some awesome plot twists, and to be honest, I think this was even better than the first book I'm going to start making a list of the names Kat guesses for Hale's first name After reading this and the first book, I now have an official list of the names Kat has guessed for Hale, along with whether he definitely said no or if it was a noncommittal answer.

Ally Carter wrote in everything I look for in a good heist story: I would say that Uncommon Criminals is the blockbuster, popcorn novel for YA for this summer as Super 8 is this summer's blockbuster movie for Hollywood- sort of There was no way I couldn't like this book even if I tried.
I would say that Uncommon Criminals is the blockbuster, popcorn novel for YA for this summer as Super 8 is this summer's blockbuster movie for Hollywood- sort of hyped up but not as much as others have been and attached to several big names of their respective industries. Of course coming from Ally Carter, the plot of Uncommon Criminals was nothing short of riveting. For the whole pages I kept the novel in my hands and never looked up unless to quickly take a sip of my caramel frapp, or occasionally getting distracted by people sitting next to me.
The writing was elegant and polished, adding some glamor needed for the story like this. Kat was a believable character. The way she sticks with her family, and the way she takes up a Robin Hood-like role was poignant to me.
She seems so wise and she's seen so much of the world already that I was taken aback when I remembered that she was only fifteen. The same goes for the rest of her crew. It's hard to believe that they're only sixteen or under! Speaking of Kat's crew, I badly badly badly want to join them.
Not so much for the thievery, but for the traveling I want to go all around Europe The second in command of Kat's crew is W. Hale, who's handsome, smart, conveniently rich , and every bit as stubborn as Kat herself. One of the best aspects of the novel, besides the thievery was Kat and Hale dynamic. It plays out nicely because we and Kat and Hale themselves never forget that they're first and foremost best friends.
The other crew members are Simon, the tech geek of the group Q: Why is every "geeky" guy named Simon these days?
The heist itself? Brilliantly done. I know that I'll have to read over the ending again to take in all of it. I'm really looking forward to finding out who Visily Romani is or will we every find out? It might've been the frapp and the windy weather outside, but it suddenly got chilly whenever Mr or Ms? Romani's name got mentioned.
Very mysterious Recommended to all. View 1 comment. Feb 08, Melannie: Where do I begin? I remember reading Heist Society a loooong time ago, I remember listening to the audiobook of it quite a few times, I remember loving this series. I loved this book! I was so surprised and pleased to discovered it is as good as the first one, plus more adventures, more truths, even more lies, and oh so many incredibly kick-butt action!
The characters! Gosh the characters! I didn't recall them being this awesome! It takes some okay, a lot of talent to write a book like this, and to me, Miss Carter deserves an standing ovasion! I can't even imagine how much time it took for her to plot all her characters' actions. Each and everyone of the situations on this book were complicated and tricky at first to be ended later in the most simplified way you could think of or actually, haven't think of these guys are teenagers after all, and trust them to find the answer to an exit problem using five hundred doves not kidding, don't ask What I also loved about this second book is that it shows Kat's flaws.
I mean I knew she had them, SHE knew she had them, but it's nice to see them aknowledged. She can be a super kick ass thief, but she's also a fifteen year old girl who has normal problems while living an extraordinary life. And Hale, oh W. Hale the Fifth, how I love you! He kept the loyalness he has come to be known for.
He's awesome, you can tell he's deeply in love with Kat, but he's not gonna take her crap, and I like that, he's fierce! Every other character kick major butt in this one too. This book is incredible and I can't wait for the people at WB to give the green light so they can start turning this series into a movie! Kat refuses the job at first until the stranger mentions the name Visily Romani.
Years ago, Kat's Uncle Eddie told her about this sacred name, invoked only for the most worthy causes. Smart and clever, and never one to give up easily, Kat promises to take the job. She is joined by the handsome and incredibly rich W. Hale and her cousin, Gabrielle. Nick, the Bagshaw Brothers, Simon and the ubiquitous Marcus round out the team.
Like a modern-day Robin Hood, Kat and her crew are back in action, this time to steal um, make that return the Cleopatra Emerald to its rightful owner. Retrieving it is not an easy caper. The tried-and-true cons, tricks and misdirections Kat and her family have used for generations are ineffective and, at times, dangerous.
The emerald is heavily guarded and hasn't been seen in public for over 30 years. Not only that, but Kat's uncle, the head of her light-fingered family, has forbidden anyone within the family to even attempt to take the emerald. Then there's the curse that has followed the infamous gem since the fall of the Egyptian Empire and the suicide of Cleopatra.
