As I searched Audible for my next book, the cover for The Conspiracy of Us by Maggie Hall caught my eye and the blurb sounded like something that would interest me so I decided to give it a try.
This book is narrated by Julia Whelan. I have listened to other books read by her, and I’ve never been disappointed with the way that she portrays the different characters. Her performance reminded me of the Die for Me series by Amy Plum, since this book also has scenes in Paris, and the accents were very well done.
I liked that this book had a different take on history, with the premise involving a secret society known as the Circle who control much of what goes on in the world. The book is filled with action and many of the scenes play out in intriguing spots in Paris and Istanbul.
I found The Conspiracy of Us to be entertaining. While I liked it, I didn’t love it. I would give this 3.5 out of 5 stars, mainly because I didn’t connect with Avery as much as I wanted to. Stellan was my favorite character by far. At some point, I will probably check out book 2 in this series, primarily because I want to learn more about him. It seems he would be more heavily involved based on the way things ended. I’ll leave it at that to avoid a spoiler.
