April didn’t mean to start the fire. She wasn’t even the one who broke the vase.

She had absolutely no intention of becoming the only person who knows that Gabriel Winterborne, the missing-and-presumed-dead billionaire, is neither missing nor dead and is actually living in the basement of Winterborne House, sharpening his swords and looking for vengeance.

Now that April knows Gabriel Winterborne is alive, it’s up to her to keep him that way. But there’s only so much a twelve-year-old girl can do, so April must turn to the other orphans for help. Together, they’ll have to unravel the riddle of a missing heir and a creepy legend, and find a secret key, before the only home they’ve ever known is lost to them forever.

So as usual, I'll tell 5 things I liked about the book and 0 things I didn't care for.

I don't think it's any secret that I really enjoy books by Ally Carter, with these literally being the 14th and 15th book I've read from her (excluding short stories, which I have also read).
The Gallagher Girls was the first series I remember being frustrated at since I had to wait a year for the next book, again and again - and yes this is a sign of a good series! And my 5th post - ever - was a review of that (though I don't recommend going back to read those first ones!).
My point here is, that when I heard of this new middle grade series by her I added it to my tbr without really know long what it's about, and it did not disappoint!
And it probably doesn't need to be said that when the next one comes, I'll be here for it!

+1 | The writing simply grips you along for a ride

+1 |It's whimsical like middle grade often is, but without being too whimsical

+1 | Adventure and actions galore

 +1 |The combination of characters all fleshed out with stories, dreams and fears

+1 | The interaction between friends and all the other types of relationships

Read on lovelies,
