Only the Good Spy Young: 5th Review

Okay, I just KNOW you have all heard of the Gallagher Series. I mean, they rock! You'd be a fool not to read it. They're absolutely amazing and keep you engaged throughout the book. Personally, I think the ending of the book was a little abrupt. Because it leaves you hanging, and sadly, this book is the last of the series. Though, Ally Carter is writing a different series, and the first installment is called: Heist Society, another very good book, but as we all know, they can never be as excellent as the ones before. But, Only the Good Spy Young was as good as the ones before, because their were so many mysteries, questions, and surprising twists that you could never set the book down until you read the very last page. (Which I recommend not doing). Anyways, enough of me, lets get to the book.

     Cammie Morgan has already been almost kidnapped by a dangerous group called the Circle of Cavan, and now, even when she thought things couldn't get any different, or any more complicated, they do. Cammie is on vacation with her best friend, Bex, and her parents, and right when everything was perfect, when nothing could go wrong, one of her most trusted, loved (and hated), and most surprising allies turns out to be... well, bad. Cammie can't believe that this person (who I am not going to name, since that would result in spoiling the book) is a double-agent, it just can't be true. Though everyone she talks to claim to say that the "double agent" is in fact bad. Over that, Cammie no longer knows if she can trust Zach, he's been showing up everywhere and seems to have no explanation for it whenever Cammie asks. And now, the new teacher at the Gallagher Academy seems to be hiding something too. Everything has changed over the few months of break since Cammie's last semester, maybe too much. Cammie has so many questions, no answers, and now she learns of a shocking secret about the "double agent" that makes her believe that maybe, just maybe, he really is bad.
      Cammie is torn between answers, if you want to find out who the "double agent" is, then you better read this book, its sure to leave you shocked.

Clash of the Titans: 4th Review (Spoiler Alert!)

Okay, so we've all heard of Percy Jackson. I mean, who hasn't read the Percy Jackson series? Well, that movie was for us, teens and tweens. But now, there's the movie Clash of the Titans. A story based on Perseus and the Greek gods. Now, the movie was rated best 3D movie, but best movie? I don't think so. Overall, the movie was hard to get into, and it felt short and didn't have enough plots and twists. But, even with that, its a great movie that gives you perspective on the Greek myths, legends and heroes. 
      The story starts out from the original scene of Perseus and his mother floating away on the sea in a coffin. A fisherman then finds Perseus and keeps him, though his mother had not survived. Perseus then ends up living with the fisherman and his wife. Later on, when soldiers are toppling over Zeus's statue, the statue falls over onto Perseus boat and kills his family. Outraged, Perseus from then on hates Hades, since Hades's creatures had also helped the statue fall onto their boat. Perseus then awakes after the accident in a king's palace, who, along with his kingdom, think man should rule their world, instead of the gods. Hades then shows up and shows his wrath to the king, by killing his wife. Then, Hades says to the kingdom, that he will release the Kraken in days amount of time, and if the king's daughter isn't killed by then, the Kraken will not be stopped. Perseus witnesses all of this and is soon in the company of his guardian, who tells him he is the son of Zeus and that he has to kill the Kraken. Perseus refuses and says all he wants to do is annihilate Hades, but the guardian tells him that killing the Kraken will  weaken Hades himself, since it is Hades's creature from the beginning. And from then the story goes on, from Perseus going to the three witches, and to meeting Medusa.
      Watch this spectacular movie and find out for yourself if it is worthy of being best movie.
