All Her SecretsAll Her Secrets by Kate Avery Ellison
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Victoria’s father is the famous inventor Bill Faraday who is considered a genius for all of his robotic technology that has slowly been replacing human workers. With that fame though comes danger from those opposed to her father’s inventions. Just a few years before Victoria had been stabbed and almost died in an attack geared towards her father. Now Victoria’s worse fears have come to pass yet again, alone Victoria is attacked yet again and kidnapped.

Having come along on what Sam thought was going to be a simple break in with his cousin he immediately recognizes Victoria when his cousin takes her hostage. Sam is no better than a prisoner himself but vows to get them both out of the clutches of his cousin and his girlfriend. While being held Victoria and Sam work together and grow closer as the pair try to find a way out.

All Her Secrets was a rather fast paced young adult thriller which for me lacked a bit of world building along the way to make this one a truly great read. There were details while reading that are left out that made parts of the story just not really make much sense until the very end. If some things had been given more depth earlier on without giving away the ending I probably would have enjoyed it a bit more.

Now the ending truly saved this one and made it an interesting read after finishing. The ideas behind the story of this not so distant future were certainly entertaining in the fact that you can see how the world might progress to this type of future with how technology is today.

Overall, 3.5 stars. I would have liked a bit more depth earlier on in the story to make the action a bit more intense instead of leading to questions for me.

I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
