A Spy in the House by Y.S. Lee
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The beginning of this novel really grabbed my attention. I don't want to give much of the story away, but it's really interesting to see our young character Mary in such a predicament at such a young age. It's very enlightening to see someone come along to save her and to offer her a better chance at life than what was going to happen.
I was expecting to see a bit more of Mary at school or a bit more of The Agency that she was so easily inducted into. It wasn't made out to be such a big deal even though she really was undergoing a lot for her work with the agency. She undergoes some sort of training, training of which we don't see her go through and then she's thrust into her assignment.
Aside from those little issues above, once Mary gets to her assignment, things start to get a little more interesting. However, I just didn't find the story completely riveting. It's surprising to see what's really happening behind the scenes and to see who is really stealing artifacts because it is someone so completely unexpected.
I guess I just expected a lot more from this novel but I did not find this to be a disappointing read. I was just looking for a more fleshier novel.
