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.

I have to admit, I was putting off reading Ally Carter's latest installment. Don't get me wrong, I adore the series but it has been wayy too long since I read the book before this one and I barely remember what happened. I am glad that I pushed through, though. This book was one hell of a ride.

Anyway, turned out, my confusion worked in favour of the book because Cammie herself didn't remember much- well, anything from last summer. The little bits of information she was presented with in the beginning helped fill the blanks I had with the happenings and going ons in her world. So it was all ok.

The rest of the book, I'm happy to report, was just absolutely brilliant. The romance was just adorable. Zach and Cammie were adorable. They were all adorable! (P.S. Townsend and Abby better end up together at the end of all this) Also, for some reason, I was really emotionally unstable while I was reading this. I lost count of all the times I teared up or hard out cried that the words were all blurry. Actually, it probably wasn't even that sad. Anyone else wouldn't just go all, "Aaaaw, that's so sad!" But not me. Ally Carter played me like a violin. There was a lot of action, as well. A lot. And don't even get me started on the suspense! So many intense moments throughout the book. The Circle... Zach... Mr Solomon... Catherine... The ending!

Out of Sight, Out of Time was on a whole new level of awesomeness from the rest of the series. Needless to say, it is my favourite of the series, so far, because honestly I can just feel that the next one is going to be mind blowing!
