The last thing Cammie Morgan remembers is leaving the Gallagher Academy to protect her friends and family. But when Cammie wakes up in an alpine convent and discovers months have passed, her memory is a black hole. The only traces left of Cammie’s summer vacation are the bruises on her body and dirt under her nails. All she wants is to go home. But even the Gallagher Academy now holds more questions than answers as Cammie and her friends face their most difficult challenge yet. With only their training and a few clues to guide them, the girls go in search of answers on the other side of the world. But the Circle is hot on their trail and will stop at nothing to prevent Cammie from remembering what she did last summer.

Out of Sight, Out of Time was one of my most anticipated 2012 releases and so as soon as I spotted it I just had to have it. Luckily, this book met my expectations and added yet another great edition to the Gallagher Girls series.

When I first heard about this book's storyline I started wondering how Carter was going to portray Cammie's memory loss without making it seem too... unbelievable. I'm glad to report back that this infact was not the case. Cammie's amnesia was played out very well. Naturally, of course, we are still kept in the dark about a few things that took place during Cammie's mysterious mission at the end but that's just Carter's way of getting you hooked on the series!

Yet again, my favourite character was Zach. I just love his whole personality. The bad boy side to him being one of the biggest reasons. The only character I didn't really like was Bex. The mistaken relationship twist near the beginning I found to be the origin! But even though after that was sorted out I still found her a little... unlikeable I suppose. I really wish Liz was included in it even more, she's a great character!

I managed to read this book in a day because it was that addictive. The writing style and the way Cammie told the story was just perfect. I really want there to be another sequel like right now! I need to know what happens! It's so unfair how Carter always manages to leave us admist a bundle of questions and... oh yeah, a possible mission!

Overall, Out of Sight, Out of Time was another great book to add on to a fab series! With a great storyline, characters and writing style this book swoops you up into a world of action that will have fans of action, kick-ass heroines and spies glued.


Happy Reading,
Rachel xoxo

  6. I had anticipated this book for a year now, and it did not disappoint! At first, I was slightly skeptical of the plot compared to other books. I mean, memory loss is something that either works or doesn't, and fortunately for this book it worked.
