Review: See How They Run (Embassy Row #2) by Ally Carter



Inside every secret, there’s a world of trouble. Get ready for the second book in this new series of global proportions–from master of intrigue, New York Times bestselling author Ally Carter.

Grace’s past has come back to hunt her . . . and if she doesn’t stop it, Grace isn’t the only one who will get hurt. Because on Embassy Row, the countries of the world stand like dominoes, and one wrong move can make them all fall down.

The twists get twistier and the turns get even more shocking in the second thrilling installment of Embassy Row.


I have been waiting forever for this book to come out, but I must say I was a little disappointment. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the story and the writing but it WAS SO SHORT LIKE, WHAT ARE YOU DOING ALLY?! I’ve been waiting way too long for this sequel and I only needed two hours to finish it. GAH!

“I’m not going to leave, you know,” Noah says when my silence is too much. “You can’t run me off. It’s too late for that. We’ve done international espionage together. We’re bonded for life.” 

I can’t really say what happens in this book because spoilers, but let’s just say that Grace is all over the place again and stumbling into situations she shouldn’t be in. I also loved we got to meet Jamie in this book and we got to see more of Alexei (though I’m not sure if I should be happy about that. That’s what Ally’s book do to you. They mess with your brain).

“History almost always repeats itself. And it is almost always written by men.”

The writing is again beautiful, and I loved Grace, but I felt like something was missing. I can’t exactly pinpoint what it would be though. But yeah. Something wasn’t there. Which is sad, because I was so excited to read this book and now I’m a little let down. But I still liked it a lot. *goes to check goodreads to see when book 3 comes out* NOT UNTIL 2017? *cries*

There’s a loop in my life – a pattern of violence and death and heartbreaking sorrow that I would give anything to stop. To rewrite. To end.

  1. I agree with you, I was really excited for this one and read it really quick but overall I just ended up more confused and with even more questions and OH MY GOD WHERE IS BOOK 3, THE STRUGGLE IS TO REAL.
