#BookReview: I Do Not Trust You by Laura J. Burns Melinda Metz #IDoNotTrustYou #NetGalley

Reviewed By: Jessica P. 
Publisher: Wednesday Books
Recommended Age: Young Adult 
Genre: Fantasy 
About the Book:

Memphis "M" Engle is stubborn to a fault, graced with an almost absurd knowledge of long lost languages and cultures, and a heck of an opponent in a fight. In short: she's awesome.

Ashwin Sood is a little too posh for her tastes, a member of an ancient cult (which she’s pretty sure counts for more than one strike against him), and has just informed Memphis that her father who she thought was dead isn’t and needs her help. 

From the catacombs of Paris to lost temples in the sacred forests, together they crisscross the globe, searching for the pieces of the one thing that might save her father. But the closer they come to saving him—and the more they fall for one another—the closer they get to destroying the world.


This title will be released on September 11, 2018.



About the Author: 
LAURA J. BURNS and MELINDA METZ have written many books for teens and middle-grade readers, including Sanctuary Bay, Crave, and Sacrifice, as well as the Edgar-nominated mystery series Wright and Wong. They have also written for the TV shows ROSWELL, 1-800-MISSING, and THE DEAD ZONE. Laura lives in New York and Melinda lives in North Carolina, but really they mostly live on email, where they do most of their work together.





Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: This is like those movies Inferno and National Treasure but a book for teens! 

Do I Recommend this book? Kind of you might want to try the library for this one first. 

Notes and Opinions: This one started out really good it was a wild ride like the movies Tomb Raider and National treasure where you search for the clues and artifacts to get to the end. But after a while, this one just got a little old. I wish that amazingness of this one would have gone throughout the book but then it just got really boring and nothing of note really happened. I really wanted to be at the edge of my seat but it just didn't happen.  

The characters and world that the author created were fine. I didn't dislike anyone. This one all came down to the story itself and the lack of the edge of your seat action that I was looking for. 

Go Into This One Knowing: Great Characters, No Action in this action story
