For the past three years, Grace Blakely has been desperate to find out the truth about her mother's murder. She thought it would bring her peace. She thought it would lead her to answers. She thought she could put the past to rest. But the truth has only made her a target. And the past? The only way to put the past to rest is for Grace to kill it once and for all.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh... This wasn't as great as I thought it would be... The idea is great, but the telling of the story did not interest me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not enjoy it I found this very boring and the characters were annoying. It's too bad because Ally Carter's other series are good but the Embassy Row trilogy was terrible.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from ummm.....okay? so this series was great (i mean the first and second book) and i almost bought the signed version of this book (glad i didnt).... where do i start? okay so this teenager sees her mom die, is haunted by images of a man with a scar (so cliché), spends a while strapped to a bed in an insane asylum then finds out that she killed her mom and not scar dude, blah blah blah sees her bro get stabbed.... how does she not go totally bonkers???!! i mean, you dont just wake up one morning and get over it!!! and when is there time to fall in love??!!!!??!!? and correct me if im wrong but didnt she just totally give up?? i mean, "lets run away from ann!!" then she turns herself in? where is the character growth!!?? carter is an amazing author but this book totally let me down, if she was trying to be unpredictable, it backfired. note to carter: foreshadowing is a very handy litt device, and if you dont use it excessively, you might find it will enrich our story.... and wont leave so many readers wanting a re-write hope this help, dont buy this book, get it from the library, save our trees, and your money

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satisfying Conclusion To The 'Embassy Row' Trilogy Finishing a good book feels a lot like returning home after a long, arduous adventure. It's been fun, but now you're ready to sit back, relax, and reminisce on the fun you've had. Closing the proverbial door on the Embassy Row trilogy has ignited a wide array of emotions in me. On one hand, I don't want to leave my newfound friends in Adria; on the other, these fictional friends have led me on such a whirlwind adventure I find myself relishing the chance to sit back and let my mind (and heart) relax. It's been fun - and at times, terrible - but I'm satisfied. We solved the riddle, sang the song, found the princess. What more could I ask for? Once again, Ally Carter has delivered a heart-wrenching story that I will be revisiting many times, I'm sure - once my heart rate has returned to normal, that is.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Wonderful End to the Series My copy just arrived a few days ago and I just finished it today. I loved it! I was never able to predict what would happen next; which I can usually do, so that was what I found the best about this book. The ending was incredible, (but I won't spoil it) and I especially loved how Grace reflected on who she was before the entire chain of events happened, I found that very interesting to read about. All in all a wonderful book but it was a bit too packed, there definitely could've been more elaboration at certain parts.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Siiiiiiiiiigh I had a really hard time finishing this book. It wasn't terrible, per say, it was just...too much. I could not take Grace seriously. Since the first book, she's operated as if the world revolves around her and it's awful because she's so crazy and can't everyone see what a terrible destructive force she is and she has to sacrifice herself for everyone because she's such a terrible person it doesn't matter anyways and if they cross her they better watch out cause crazy girl is gonna get them and uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuugh. For real, girl, you're sixteen, you're fairly impotent, and you're not the devil incarnate. You're a troubled teenager given way too much attention and validation by a country that, frankly, needs to drag its head out of its butt and stop with the vaguely named "societies" and monarchies that honestly deserved to be ousted. Alexei's "I'm Russian so I don't have feelings - except for my undying ones for you, girl-who-barely-passess-the-half-plus-seven-rule" act got old really fast, I didn't really care about any of the other characters, and Ann was just...annoying. The marry-the-prince thing felt like a combination of a schtick and something that should have been introduced waaaaaaaaay earlier, half the characters dropped off the map, and the settings were so bland I didn't notice one time when they switched cities. If you cut out all of Grace's broad sweeping statements about what an unredeemable pile of angst she is, this book would have been twenty pages long. But then you'd miss out on the nice eyeball workout you get rolling your eyes every other paragraph. I don't know where Carter went wrong. Her heist series is fantastic. I think it was in making a main character who is supposed to be sympathetic, but instead came off as someone I wanted to lock in a room with a therapist and never think about again. Sigh.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book!!! I bought this book on boxing day, it took me less then 24 hours to read. I loved the suspense, and build up of the end of the novel. I love the concept of the missing princess, and thee countries celebrations.
