Happy Book Birthday to THE CONSPIRACY OF US by Maggie Hall!!!!


You guys! It is officially the long-awaited book birthday of THE CONSPIRACY OF US by my gorgeous, fabulous CP, Maggie Hall!



Who can blame Zach for fainting?! Just look at that cover!


To fight her destiny as the missing heir to a powerful and dangerous secret society, sixteen-year-old Avery West must solve an ancient puzzle in a deadly race across Europe. Forbidden love and code-breaking, masked balls and explosions, destiny and dark secrets collide in this romantic thriller, in the vein of a YA DaVinci Code.

Avery West's newfound family can shut down Prada at the Champs-Elysees when they want to shop in peace, and can just as easily order a bombing when they want to start a war.

They are part of a powerful and dangerous secret society called the Circle of Twelve, and Avery is their missing heir. If they discover who she is, some of them will want to use her as a pawn. Some will want her dead.

To thwart their plans, Avery must follow a trail of clues from the landmarks of Paris to the back alleys of Istanbul and through a web of ancient legends and lies. And unless she can stay one step ahead of beautiful, volatile Stellan, who knows she’s more than she seems, and can decide whether to trust mysterious, magnetic Jack, she may be doomed after all.
 


So, why is this so exciting? Well, aside from the obvious awesome you'll find inside that gorgeous cover, I "met" Maggie when TCoU was in its infancy - and called something entirely different. We were both in the query trenches together, and saw each other through a bunch of rejection, and every time Maggie told me about a new one, I was all:


I mean, the book had SO MUCH TO OFFER. Mystery, suspense, action. Hot guys with hot bods. (Hiiii, Jack)

You and me both, buddy.
And oh heyyyy, Stellan, you're not so bad yourself.


There's even a scene that goes kind of like this:





Okay, so not really, but it's still one of my absolute favorite lines in the book. And it's all set against exotic backdrops like Istanbul and Paris.

So now that Maggie's book is a real, honest-to-God book, one that you can GO OUT AND PURCHASE IMMEDIATELY, you can imagine how thrilled I am.



So, after you've bought your copy of CONSPIRACY (I've handily provided the link above), go find Maggie on Twitter (@MaggieEHall), hand her a big glass of champagne, and give her a giant hug in celebration of her book birthday.

CONGRATULATIONS, MAGGIE!!!!
