Katarina Bishop has worn a lot of labels in her short life life. Friend. Niece. Daughter. Thief. But for the last two months she's simply been known as the girl who.
We see what they did and what their role in the various heists were, but we never got to sit back and really see them I think this was mainly because of the weird writing style. The writing purposely left a lot out or skipped over important scenes so that we wouldn't know what was happening and be surprised at the end. Well, you know what? I don't like feeling manipulated If you could have surprised me at the end, I would have loved it.
But instead we know that everything isn't as it seems, and then it tries to spring it on us that everything was a ruse. Well, sorry if we all saw through that.
Uncommon Criminals: A Heist Society Novel
It wasn't half-obvious or anything Unless the rumours of a fourth book are true? Love this series so much! The crew is great! It feels like a guilty pleasure, because these kinds are so much younger than I am, but those are just really well-written books! Just by a smidge. Kat and her crew are back in Uncommon Criminals , and this time their mission is to steal the Cleopatra Emerald from a man named Oliver Kelly, whose grandfather stole it from an Egyptian tomb.
This is the biggest job Kat has ever had: And if that wasn't enough, the Emerald is also supposedly cursed, bringing misfortune upon anyone who comes in contact with it. It was a fun time! Yes please. I've never been to Monaco but it's always kind of fascinated me - this tiny country the size of a town with a royal family, chock full of casinos and hotels.
It's like another world. Unfortunately Kat did annoy me a little bit in this one, mostly surrounding everything to do with Hale.
It annoyed me how he was always incredibly sweet and there for her and clearly loved her, and she kept insisting on her "I work alone" shit and taking Hale for granted. She also seemed to take sole credit for the heist in the previous book, when it was very clearly a team effort. Hale is amazing. Gabrielle is my girl crush, Simon is adorable, and Hamish and Angus are hilarious. Overall I'm really enjoying this series, I'm in love with the Art Thief Aesthetic, and any story with a heist is bound to have me hooked.
Jun 28, Alaina rated it liked it Shelves: Uncommon Criminals is the second book from the Heist Society. I don't really know how I feel about it.. Okay, so, this book was meh.
Just like the previous book. I don't really know if I want to torture myself with more of these meh books but I haven't made my decision.. Maybe they will get better or worse.. Maybe I'll flip a coin. So this book was dull, boring, and again MEH. I still haven't really Uncommon Criminals is the second book from the Heist Society. I still haven't really connected to the characters and I also haven't seen a lot of development between them either. I also don't really like the writing style.
I'm pretty sure that's why I'm not really connecting to anything because we are only really seeing what they did but not what were doing throughout the whole book.
It was annoying and frustrating to read. Does it change throughout the series? Does it get better? I have no idea. Besides the frustrating writing, I just feel like I either missed a shit ton of things happening.. Either thinking in it her head.. I don't know but it happens - a lot, to me.
Overall, I have no idea if I wanted to dive into the third book. I took a second chance on this series and I'm still not impressed, intrigued, or even slightly enjoying myself. I'm just numb to reading this series right now. Actual rating 4. It was entertaining, fun and full of action. This book focuses a lot on family and friendship but it has more of a romance as well.
Writing Actual rating 4. Writing Style — 4 out of 5 stars The writing style is funny, simple and really easy to read. Characters — 4 out of 5 stars This improved so much more in this second book. I definitely found myself connecting a bit more with all the different characters in part because I got to know them more through their relationships.
It was just what I needed. Kat has grown from the first book but not necessarily in the best way.
Uncommon Criminals (Heist Society 2)
I was kind of upset with Hale in this book though I totally understood where he was coming from. It was nice to see a more emotional side of him even if he still carries on with his charming and protective self. The plot is entertaining. This book was a lot ore exciting and suspenseful than the first. The stakes are higher and the job is much harder than ones they have encountered before. There were quite a few twists and turns that I did not see coming at all which I really appreciated.
Sometimes with these books, in this particular genre, things happen way too quickly or too conveniently to be believed beyond the fact that teenagers are pulling off heists and I loved that this book turned things on its head and left me floundering to see how they were actually going to get their shit together and pull off what they needed to do. These obstacles challenged the characters, specially Kat. They had to think outside the box and grow and learn together which made the story much richer.
Just everything about this group! Kat goes through a lot in this book. But luckily, she gets a really nasty dose of reality and begins to grow and change from that outlook. But she slowly begins to put more of her faith and trust in her family and what they can do together and it was really great to see.
The side characters in this series are some of my favorite though they definitely took more of a backseat in this particular book. Hale is still my overprotective sweetheart.
In the first book, he kind of got by on his charms and his jokes and while I love that, he needed more depth and it was obviously appreciated. Gabby is getting to me. Overall, I liked this book much better than the first one, the books are definitely getting better each time.
The plot is exciting, entertaining and intense. We finally get some background information on her family and we get to see different sides to the other characters in the crew which was awesome. Feb 26, Kiana rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: I am soooo excited for this book to come out!! I have an obsession with the first book I've read it 9 times and all of Ally Carter's other books love the Gallagher Girls Series which is why I know I will love this one too.
Hey, it is already in my favorites shelf! This has been said alot but, the cover does look gorgeous!! I read the first chapters of it and instantaneously fell in love with it.
The plot is really creative and I can't wait to read all about it. Kat gets a new client and new job I am soooo excited for this book to come out!! Kat gets a new client and new job to steal back Cleopatra's cursed emerald!
It's going to be adventurous, funny, and romantic, Kat and Hale?!?! Its going to be a great book and I recommend it for anybody who enjoys reading obsess-worthy books!!! You know how they say too much of a goood thing is bad? Nope, its not true, especially when it comes to the Heist Society Series! Trust me!!! I'm soo excited to start reading it!!! And, I dont have to wait another 10 days until the 21st!!!!!!!!!! Real Review I love this book. I loved the plot and it kept you guessing!
There was so much going on with the Emerald and it was all very exciting!! I loved reading more about her family, and we found out about someone who was using the sacred name, Visily Romani.
I had high expectations for Kat and Hale, and i think i was maybe the tiniest bit dissapointed view spoiler [ if only their first kiss was a little mpre memorable but thats okay because it was still their kiss!
All in all, the plot was awesome, it was excitiny and adventurous and it made for a great sequel!! Ally Carter never dissapoints! View all 5 comments. Feb 15, Maiven Lee marked it as to-read Recommends it for: I know its going to be ahmazing!
Mar 11, Brianna rated it it was amazing Shelves: Hm, I think I like the Heist cover better, this one seems a little less intense.
But it's still nice, love that the model kept her smirk: After reading: I really loved this book. I liked the first Heist a lot, but I feel like Ally Carter has improved her writing so much since the last Heist.
All the characters in Uncommon Criminals are really wonderful and extremely well fleshed out.
I also think Ally Carter's third person prose has gotten a lot better. View all 3 comments. Feb 20, Hanna rated it it was amazing. Oct 14, Nitzan Schwarz rated it liked it Shelves: I didn't think I'd do that, either. Shallow I was hoping Uncommon Criminals might actually live to the potential of the awesome idea behind these books , but while it was a better read than the first, it was by no mean anything incredible.
I did like Kat a whole lot more in this book. While she's always been likable, she's also been a flat character. Far more than I like Gabrielle. Though, I don't think my curiosity in that aspect is enough to make me read on with this series. One thing that really bothered me and drove me nuts were the heists themselves. Lots of parts were just left out and made no sense at all!
Like, the Interpol. For god's sake, how did they make all these things explode? Or the doves and the casino.
Maybe those are actually robot doves and that's why they did exactly what they wanted them to. I felt like Carter thought of all those interesting ideas for the heists, but had no idea how to explain them It may not bother everyone, but to me this was a major issue.
Maybe book three will be better. Maybe not. I'll probably never find out. I just love this series! I have been wanting to get back to this series and I finally have. It made it for a fast and enjoyable read. I did not see the ending coming and it was hilarious and genius. I am looking forward to reading the next installment in this series.
Jun 23, Whatchyareading added it Shelves: And then I finally looked closer and I freaking loved that book like few others I read last year.
When I found out Uncommon Criminals was coming? I did a happy dance of happy happiness. The happy dancing? It continued until I was at the end. And such happy dancing it was. I started out my review of Heist Society talking about my love for Kat, and honestly she was what I loved most about Uncommon Criminals as well.
Ally Carter has a gift for growing her characters. I also love how businesslike Kat, and all of the characters are, really, without seeming like adults.
Kat is 15, and so many times she seems older than that. It makes for a good balance. Hale in this book was if possible even more amazing than he was in Heist Society.
Like Kat, he is the perfect balance for someone with a bit of an old soul, who is mature for his age made more believable by his astoundingly wealthy upbringing but who also tends to react to certain things like any boy his age might. How he is with Kat evolved from Heist Society as well.
There, he let Kat make decisions and take care of herself. And he still does that in Uncommon Criminals. The plot in this novel was as interesting and thoroughly planned as that of Heist Society.
What made it special is that I truly think this novel could have been a standalone in addition to being a perfect follow-up. If that even makes sense. Sure, there were still some crazy and awesome capers. But this book, in a lot of ways, was kind of like the politics behind the heists.
We got to find out about the players and what goes on behind the scenes. Part of me found some of this slightly unbelievable, but then within days I read an article about an ancient goblet disappearing from a church in the middle of the day when it was displayed in plain sight. That just reminded me how good Kat was. The slave would have been marked with the letter R on their forehead signifying that they were a criminal, and a runaway. References to this practice can be traced in texts such as Narad Panchratra , Vaikhnasagama, Skanda Purana etc.
By the Statute of Vagabonds under King Edward VI , vagabonds and Gypsies were ordered to be branded with a large V on the breast, and brawlers with F for "fraymaker"; slaves who ran away were branded with S on the cheek or forehead.
This law was repealed in England in From the time of Henry VII , branding was inflicted for all offences which received Benefit of clergy branding of the thumbs was used around at Old Bailey to ensure that the accused who had successfully used the Benefit of Clergy defence, by reading a passage from the Bible, could not use it more than once , but it was abolished for such in In it was enacted that those convicted of petty theft or larceny , who were entitled to benefit of clergy, should be "burnt in the most visible part of the left cheek, nearest the nose.
James Nayler , a Quaker who in the year was accused of claiming to be the Messiah , convicted of blasphemy in a highly publicized trial before the Second Protectorate Parliament and had his tongue bored through and his forehead branded B for "blasphemer". In the Lancaster criminal court a branding iron is still preserved in the dock.
It is a long bolt with a wooden handle at one end and an M malefactor at the other; close by are two iron loops for firmly securing the hands during the operation. The brander would, after examination, turn to the judge exclaiming "A fair mark, my lord.
In the 18th century, cold branding or branding with cold irons became the mode of nominally inflicting the punishment on prisoners of higher rank. Found guilty of manslaughter he was burnt in the hand, if that could be called burning which was done with a cold iron" Markham's Ancient Punishments of Northants , Such cases led to branding becoming obsolete, and it was abolished in except in the case of deserters from the army, who were marked with the letter D, not with hot irons but by tattooing with ink or gunpowder.
Notoriously bad soldiers were also branded with BC bad character. In this was abolished. Branding in Australia[ edit ] Offenders in Australia were subject to branding in accordance with British law. Over time, red hot iron brands were gradually replaced by tattoo boards; criminals were first branded on the forehead and cheeks, later on the back and arms. I love the balance of humor along with the severity of a heist and all of the experiences that come along with it.
