Book Review: Out of Sight, Out of Time (Gallagher Girls #5) by Ally Carter

Author: Ally Carter
Series: Gallagher Girls #5
Release Date: March 13th 2012
Publisher: Hyperion Book CH
Age: Young Adult
The last thing Cammie Morgan remembers is leaving the Gallagher Academy to protect her friends and family from the Circle of Cavan--an ancient terrorist organization that has been hunting her for over a year. But when Cammie wakes up in an alpine convent and discovers months have passed, she must face the fact that her memory is now a black hole. The only traces left of Cammie’s summer vacation are the bruises on her body and the dirt under her nails, and all she wants is to go home.

Once she returns to school, however, Cammie realizes that even the Gallagher Academy now holds more questions than answers. Cammie, her friends, and mysterious spy-guy Zach must face their most difficult challenge yet as they travel to the other side of the world, hoping to piece together the clues that Cammie left behind. It’s a race against time. The Circle is hot on their trail and willing stop at nothing to prevent Cammie from remembering what she did last summer.
The Gallagher Girls is one of my favorite series. Spies are cool! I was very curious about the fifth book, because now Cammie knows more about the Circle of Cavan and what was her father's mission when he disappeared.

If you read the fourth book, you know Cammie decided to 'run away'. But this book it totally different from what I expected, because Cammie wakes up and she doesn't remember anything that happened last months. So she's now trying to remember, with the help of her friends and family, and get surprises every time they discover something new.

This book was darker. Cammie was in real danger, there are some murders and torture, but nothing explicit. I wanted more about a certain spy boy, but I know it wasn't the time...

I think this series is changing and for good. Now the characters are older and it's logic they now face real dangers. Sometimes Cammie's abilities surprised, I can't believe she's the same girl from the previous books, but still, I can't wait to discover what the author have in mind for these characters (I really hope there is a next book!).


  1. I got the first book of this series on Netgalley a while back and I really have to get to it soon. Sounds like a really fun series that's great to read in between paranormals. I usually love these types of books!

  2. I don't know much about this series but I think spies are cool so I definitely want to learn more.
