    Dit boek was leuk om even tussendoor te lezen. Niet bijzonder vernieuwend, maar soms wel een beetje spannend, waardoor ik toch door ging met lezen.

    Ik heb dit boek gelezen met m'n leesclubje Books Ever After, we lezen elke maand een boek van de twaalf boeken in de serie. Ik vond dit boek duidelijker spannender dan het eerste boek, er was iets meer actie en minder verhalen over het verleden en de rest van zijn familie. Geen vijf sterren, omdat sommige dingen nog steeds hartstikke onrealistisch zijn, maar dat zal wel zo blijven. Ik wil nu echt zo graag weten hoe heel het verhaal afloopt, maar dat zal ik pas in december te weten komen (als ik het volhoud :p). Voor nu zal ik moeten wachten totdat het maart is, pas dan kan ik verder lezen.

    2.5 starsFebruary was a fast read, one and a half hours and it was done, in the read pile so quickly. I was actually planning to read this in February, because I read January in January, but it was at the library glaring at me so I finally gave in and finished it off. Cal, a teen fugitive is on the run like never before, getting saved by a mysterious (typical much) girl, Winter from the rapidly raising oil tank, he unravels clues of his father's drawings...If you haven't read my January review, I suggest you read that as it pretty much covers my thoughts of this sequel. There still wasn't enough depth, everything was rushed and had no emotions to wring out of it. Also, as a recent discovery I have found the excessive use of exclamation marks (!) There were at least 1 on every page, I mean come on, not everything was that exciting to opt in (!) every minute. What I really enjoyed about February was the action, mystery and suspense. I loved the concept of the 'Ormond Singularity' as it was so confusing yet original. February was slightly better than January and I totally recommend this book to lovers of suspense and quick reads.

    Deel 2 van de complot-serie. En ook dit deel eindigd weer super spannend, van mij mag het snel maart zijn!In dit boek iets minder informatie uit het verleden van Cal wat het boek wel leuker maakt vind ik, want je bent nu meer bezig het mysterie op te lossen.En wat ben ik benieuwd hoe het zit met Winter, hoort zie nu wel bij de vijand of niet?!

    3,5 ster (Goodreads het wordt toch echt tijd dat jullie met halve sterren gaan werken) .. Callum brengt zichzelf weer in spannende zenuwslopende situaties. Gelukkig leest het boek heel simpel en snel dus je hoeft steeds niet lang te wachten om te weten het af gaat lopen. Het boek eindigt weer met een cliffhanger dus het vervolg ook al begonnen :)

    2.5 StarsSome unavoidable spoilers for January contain in this review.The secret to writing a good mystery novel is obviously debatable. Is it the suspenseful and cryptic clue-hunting? The wise-cracking detectives and their plucky sidekicks? Or the actual mysterious mystery itself? Honestly, I think the best answer is a blend of all three, which is what makes the Conspiracy 365 series such a disappointment. It doesn't include many aspects needed to make this as gripping as it could be. In January, we saw Cal become a fugitive and in February we see him begin to live his life as one. He desperately begins the slow and laborious progress of solving the rather few and cryptic puzzle pieces of what Boges has nicknamed the DMO - the Dangerous Mystery of the Ormonds. The Ormond Singularity, the Ormond Riddle, the Ormond Angel... I think you get the picture.A lot of emphasis is placed on the action scenes in February. The very unrealistic, over-dramatized action scenes. Look everyone can over look a certain amount of unrealistic scenes in novels otherwise who would ever read an urban fantasy book or anything with vampires, werewolves, faeries or other mythical creatures. Anyone that read a Alex Rider series book can tell you that in real life Alex would be dead several times over, but what the point of a teen spy book without a little drama? The problem with the Conspiracy 365 series is that we have already seen half of these "death defying" action-packed scenes before. They aren't exciting anymore. They don't make me grip the pages with anticipation and terror... will Cal survive? Honestly, I knew he would so it didn't really bother me. Cal and Boges are also a little dense at times. They keep trusting people that they should not and they seem to think that they are going to be able to hide forever. They are fifteen-year-old boys. And they start a blog for Cal to rally some supporters or something. Have they never had a school computing lesson or watched a crime television show? They can track you! Yes, your a tech whiz Boges, but really? The DMO keeps you reading though. It makes you grip the pages a little harder, wondering, waiting, thinking... What's the angel got to do with anything? What do the drawings stand for? What does the red-headed lady have to do with anything? And how is Sligo involved? And this time we got some answers! Bless, Winter Frey and her "sadness spot". I won't say anymore though. You'll have to find out for yourself. What ruins this book is the writing. Its so simple and bland. There is no life to it whatsoever. It doesn't provoke any sort of feelings, good or bad, within me and it barely contains any sort of imaginative descriptions, let alone beautiful imageries and prose. which I know probably wouldn't suit the genre of this book, but it needs something, anything! Gabrielle Lord also seems to enjoy adding a exclamation mark to every second sentence of hers. Its annoying. Really annoying.On some positive note, while it earned a lower rating from me, it was a far more enjoyable book plot-wise than January.This book is fun. A little clichéd, a little bland, but fun. A short and easy read for fans of mystery and suspense.

    This series is fantastic! After reading book one, which left me on a horrible cliffhanger, I immediately picked up book two, and dived into the action, suspense, and mystery!I wish there were more development on the puzzling enigmas that confront Cal, but that part of the story moves very slowly with very few clues to the mystery of the Ormond Singularity popping up in each book. The action and danger and adventure, however, moves very quickly! So I guess each book in the series focuses mostly on Cal surviving through a ton of dangerous scenes and bad guys chasing him, and then we get one little clue, one bit of forward motion, with the big picture mystery. That, of course, is a very good way to keep the suspense going in a mystery/adventure series, but the suspense is killing me! I want to know the answers now! Which just shows how great this series is, because I care so much about the outcome.In this second book, Cal is on his own more, on the run as a fugitive, and he's learning to be more self-sufficient out on the streets. I'm so interested to see his character changing and developing, especially since he goes through times of hope and depression. I love his relationship with his best friend, Boges, and how the two of them joke around and rely on each other. That friendship is such a bright spot in this book!The mysterious girl, Winter, plays a large role in this book, and it was so interesting getting to know her character, and figuring out what makes her tick. She's another big puzzle for Cal to solve, and we as the reader have to make up our minds too, whether she is trustworthy or hiding something.I am loving this series, and I can't wait to dive into the next book!Disclaimer: I received this book from the publisher in exchange for a free and honest review.

    Deel 2 van de complot 365 serie. Na het uitlezen van deel 1 hoefde ik gelukkig niet zo lang te wachten tot ik verder kon lezen in deze serie, aangezien het al weer februari werd. Verbazingwekkend genoeg ben ik er ook direct in begonnen, dat ken ik helemaal niet van mezelf, want meestal ben ik heel slecht in het doorlezen in series. Waarschijnlijk heeft de minieme hoeveelheid bladzijdes (110 op mijn e-reader) er ook wel iets mee te maken. Dit boekje stelde me weer niet teleur! Het had wat minder spanning als in het eerste boekje, maar beetje bij beetje kom je meer te weten over het Ormundraadsel, al blijft het minimale informatie. Helaas heb ik het boek nu dus al weer uitgelezen en moet ik nog een hele maand wachten voordat ik in deel 3 kan en mag beginnen en dat met zo'n giga cliffhanger.. Fijn!

    When the book opens Cal is in a bad place with the threat eminent, the oil tank he is in is filling fast and he has not escape. At the last minute he the oil is shut off and the escape hatch is opened. As Cal climbs out he sees the person who saved his life, Winter, a girl around his age. As they talk Cal discovers her dubious link to the man that placed him in the tank and isn't real sure about her. Cal is also having a hard time with life on the run. The daily fight of where to sleep and what to eat takes up much of his time, leaving little for him to research the info his dad left him. If it wasn't for his friend, Boges things would be harder. Boges is automatically suspicious of Winter, but Cal seems to trust her. It is through Winter that Cal finds more clues to the riddle. He is also called again by the mystery woman who was with his dad in his last days. He wants to know what she can tell him, but every time he sets up a time to speak with her something very bad happens, this time is no different. Cal is still on the run and this time he may not find a way out.

    I had to pick up book #2 in this series as soon as I finished reading book #2. Fifteen year-old Callum Ormond continues to hide out in February following the slim clues his father left him and avoiding the people who are trying to capture him. Plenty of danger and action in this book again! I went out to my local library this afternoon and picked up the next 4 books. Stay tuned....

    Callum still really doesn't know what is going on and why people are after him. Now he is on the run and can't live with his family anymore be cause the police and other people are after him. These are pretty good books. I think sixth graders would really like them.

    In the fast paced, suspenseful series Conspiracy 360 by Gabrielle Lord teenager Callum Ormond is stopped by a crazy man on New Year’s Eve who told Callum “They killed your father. They'll kill you. You must survive the next 365 days!” So far Callum has survived a boating accident in shark-infested waters, him getting kidnapped and interrogated twice along while trying to decode the Ormond Riddle, a secret left by his father for him to figure out. Now he is in February and has just been saved by a girl from drowning in a filling pit of oil while on the run from the police, accused of brutally attacking his sister and uncle. Callum still has to solve the Ormond Riddle, a huge secret of his father’s that is connected to his family. The second installment of the series is an enjoyable, short read for teens. Gabrielle Lord does a fantastic job relaying her tone to transition into the mood to the readers. Although Lord does many things right, there are a few things that could use some improving. For example Lord could have developed the characters and relationships more. Overall, the book is an engaging short read for teens who prefer suspense series but there are a few things that could be improved upon. There are many elements that Gabrielle Lord did right in her writing of the Conspiracy 360 book series. For example Lord did an amazing job using imagery to not only develop the setting but to also develop mood. Lord writes “I struggled to keep my mouth above the rising tide as I bashed my slippery fists against the manhole cover over my head.” This detail helps you imagine the situation Callum is in by using words such as “manhole cover over me” but also conveys a tense mood to the reader by use of the words “struggled” and “rising tide”. Lord also writes “It had been a warm, summer night, but now a cold wind had blown in, lifting the dead leaves, making them skitter in an eerie little whirl”, which gives you a sense that the setting is spooky. Even though Lord did not develop the character’s too deeply the characterization she did include clued you into the person’s personality. For example Lord through dialogue writes “ Who’s a clever boy?” she said in a mocking way. This reveals that the character Winter is a witty or in a way sarcastic person. Gabrielle Lord did an amazing job developing the setting with imagery and did a decent job with what characterization she did include. In addition to what Lord did right she also can improve her writing by developing the characters and the relationships in the book. For example Lord writes, “ Green-gold flecks in her dark eyes”. While that could be considered good characterization by itself, this is one of the only times Lord describes a character’s appearance. She could have at the least used a simile to help with visualization especially if she was going to be that brief on characterization. Lord also did not develop the apparent relationship Callum and Winter. Lord had them meet in person with each other maybe 3 times out of the whole book and had cell phone conversations twice. Lord did not give the time for the development of essential relationships that would have made the book better if time was dedicated to it. Lord without a doubt could have spent just another half a chapter developing essential characteristics and relationships that would have made the book much more engaging to the readers.I would say that Gabrielle Lord wrote a good, short read for teens to not get super engaged in but enough for the readers to understand the story. Lord took time on imagery that paid off in the end because this imagery helped the readers visualize the setting in their heads like a movie. On the other hand, Lord did not spend as much time characterizing crucial characters in the book that would have made her book a better read. Overall I would score Conspiracy 365: February a generous 6 out of 10 because of the imagery if you are a teen interested in short reads.

    The book I am reviewing is called Conspiracy 365 February and it’s by Gabrielle Lord. It is a twelve book series called Conspiracy 365. The lexile level of this book is 790. This book is about an Australian boy named Callum Ormond who is fifteen years old and who is a hunted fugitive. So far he’s been attacked by sharks, blamed for a vicious assault on his family, kidnapped by two criminal gangs, and was left to drown in a fast-filling oil tank. Callum gets stuck in a lot more situations and has to find a way to get out of them.The theme of this book is to trust your family members and to stick with them all your life because they are the only people who you truly have. When Callums mom found out what happened to Rafe and Gabbi, and thinking that Callum was the one who hurt them, she goes nuts. Callums mom keeps telling Callum to come home but he never listens because if he goes home, he will get thrown in jail for a crime he never did. The more Callum doesn’t listen to her, the crazier she gets. She never lets up. Which if I were her, I wouldn't either. One of my favorite parts in the book was when it said ‘I froze and so did he, stopping dead in his tracks, raising his huge head higher to stare at me with merciless yellow eyes - a massive lion, golden brown with a black mane’. It got my heart going a little bit. This book is told in both first and third point of views. It switches back and forth quite a bit. That’s one reason I like this book is because you know all of the characters feelings and emotions.I would recommend this book to kids who like action, adventure, and crime. I liked this book because it was a pretty easy to read book and because I like action. It was a very predictable book. I guessed a few times about what was going to probably happen, but I was wrong. The same type of bad things that happen to Callum, happened to the Baudelaire children in the Series of the Unfortunate Events. Not the exact same events, but similar. The setting of the book is in Australian so the author used a lot of the words like “mum” for mom. The ending was one of my favorite parts in the book. It said “In slow motion, I watched the train come closer, my body frozen in horror. Time seemed to stop.” That was another part of the book that got my heart going faster then usual. My favorite part of the book was when Callum got stuck in the animal cage with a lion and also the ending.

    The action doesn’t let up in the second volume of Conspiracy 365: February. Fifteen year old Callum Ormond is still on the run for attacking his uncle Rafe and leaving his younger sister in a coma. And he’s still not any closer to solving the riddle of the “Ormond Singularity.” He’s still being aided by Boges, perhaps his last friend left in the world as police forces throughout Australia are on the watch for him. I personally liked reading the book because of all the action and the riddles and puzzles it leaves at a cliff hangar and makes me want to read the next book. I just loved the action in the book and all the the times Callum Ormond had to fight of the gangs and the bad guys and run away from the cops. I recommend this book to kids in 7th grade and older mostly because the violence and the action in the book. I give this book at least 5 stars because of all the mystery and action in the book.

    My local library challenged me to read a YA book, so I picked up February, the 2nd in the Conspiracy 365 series. I had previewed the first in the series (January) but hadn't taken time to read it so I wasn't sure quite what to expect when I opened up this one. To my surprise, I ended up enjoying it! I am eager to get my hands on the entire set, now. The setting is Australia, although in my ego-centric way, I thought it was anywhere USA. The story is quick-paced, yet still creates images for the reader. It's an easy book for times of frequent interruptions, due the the layout. But one really doesn't want to have to stop reading until they've finished the entire book, nay series (I'm guessing!), what with the triple excitement at the end.Disclaimer: I also happen to sell books from this publisher

    "Conspiracy 365 February" by Gabrielle Lord is a book about a 15 year old kid that has been blamed for shooting his little sister and uncle. As he runs from the police he is also chased by two rival gangs that are trying to kill him, so he has to hid out for the rest of his life.In my opinion I think that this book was not as good a the first one "Conspiracy 365 January" but it did have tones of more action in the story with the gangs and cops trying to find and capture or kill him.I would recommend this book to kids ages 12 all the way to 15 or from like seventh grade to freshman year of high school. I recommend it the these kids because it is in the reading level of them and with the word choice this book has.

    Lord returns the first book with an equally intriguing sequel. Just as Cal gets out of one tough spot, he is placed straight back into two more, meaning there are more questions than answers, keeping the reader interested. A dynamic relationship is created between Cal and the mysterious Winter Frey, who is a constant worry. Can she really be trusted with her connection to the evil Vulkan Sligo? Perhaps not considering the catastrophic cliffhanger of an ending.

    1 - read in order,2 - there is a reminder of what happened last month at the beginning,3 - fast-paced,4 - ends in the middle of something exciting going on. You will want to jump from one Book right into the next.Seems similar to 39 Clues though I think (if I remember right) that the kids were younger in that book. This one is better because it is all written by the same author. 39 Clues began to feel like it wasn’t thought out much ahead of time because of the authors thing. I never finished it because I started reading before all the books had been published...

    During this Month I've been reading an exciting book named " February Conspiracy 365" 2, written by "Gabrielle Lord." The main Characters of this story are Cal, Cal's family, Bogus, Winter, and the two gangs who want to kidnap him to get information about the Ormond Singularity. This story mainly talks about a boy named Cal who is being chased by the police and two gangs to get information about his family. The setting of this story is in an abandoned house where Cal goes to sleep and hide. At the beginning of the story, he's already kidnapped ( this is the second book since it's a series of books ) by a gang and a girl named Winter that lives with the owner of the group saves him. Cal is forced to hide from the police because he is accused of having a mental disease that caused him to try to kill his uncle and his sister. Cal is chased by the two gangs because his dad had found an important secret about their family before his death. He has sent some pictures to Cal about it. The two gangs are chasing Cal because they think that Cal knows about the secret. Unfortunately, Cal still hasn't resolved the mystery behind this secret yet and had to keep hiding from both the police and the gangs. Cal's best friend, Bogus, tried to help him by posting a blog that explains his situation and to get people's support and reaction. The police suspect Cal because they found his fingerprints on the gun used to murder his uncle, Rafe. Cal got his fingerprints on the weapon by accident when he went to get his mail from his uncle Raf’s house because he thought his uncle had hidden it for some reason. Cal decided instead of being the hunted one he decides to hunt the other gangs. Overall Cal passes through difficult moments and we'll need to try to survive through the next 365 days in the next books of Conspiracy 365.The book " February Conspiracy 356" is a fiction book. We know the story is a fiction because it doesn't describe a real story it shows the author's imagination. In this story what I like about the main character named cal is that he's starting to act like a grown up and find solutions to all his problems. I Consider Cal as a hero because he saved his sister while she fainted ( he saved her by using cpr) but the only problem is the police thought he injured her so he is trying to proof to the police that he did nothing. If I could ask any question to Cal, it would be " do you believe you will find out what the pictures mean. Overall I think Cal well find the solutions to all his problems.The book name "February Conspiracy 356" written by " Gabrielle Lord" is a great book because it teaches you about a rare problem that occurs in life and what it causes. It also teaches you that there is always a solution for everything. " February Conspiracy 365" is an amazing novel which contains a surprisingly good part and a disappointing one. My favorite part is when Cal, the main character gets saved by Winter. My least favorite part of the story is when he realizes his getting hunt by the police and 2 other gangs. Gabrielle Lord created many books and a full series for The Conspiracy 365, so I am surely going to read the next one. I would recommend this book to every person who likes reading about mystery and suspense books.

    ***Pode conter spoilers do anterior volume***O anterior volume havia terminado com Callum às portas de uma trágica e dolorosa morte, sendo a sua probabilidade de sobrevivência escassa, até que alguém o salva contra todas as expectativas por uma estranha rapariga, Winter, que tem como tutor a pessoa que o tentara matar. Winter torna-se, ao contrário do que seria de se esperar, uma chave importante no desenrolar da trama e na descodificação do enigma que tanto atormenta Callum.Tal como havia sucedido na anterior obra, este Conspiração, encontra-se recheado de acção, adrenalina e mistério. Continuamos a seguir a descoberta do enigma deixado por pai de Callum e todo o perigo que o mesmo engloba. Descobrimos um pouco mais do mesmo e das pessoas que parecem querer saber também a sua solução e que tanto têm atormentado a vida deste jovem rapaz.As personagens continuam a fascinar-nos, especialmente Callum e o seu melhor amigo. O primeiro por atravessar tantos desafios, pelos seus receios, a sua luta pela sobrevivência e a clara adoração que sente pela família. O melhor amigo por ser incansável, sempre disposto a ajudar em tudo, desde em termos monetários, de alimentação, vestuário, até mesmo no que diz respeito à descoberto do enigma, pois sendo deveras inteligente, acaba por ser importantíssimo no mesmo. A nova personagem que nos é apresentada, Winter, mostra-se misteriosa, enigmática e nunca sabemos bem o que esperar dela. É claro que passou por muito, que teve uma infância conturbada, contudo existem certos actos e aspectos sobre ela que nos são estranhos. Será interessante continuar a conhecê-la e a acompanhar a sua jornada com o nosso jovem amigo, até porque foi essencial neste livro para uma descoberta e poderá sê-lo novamente.Relativamente à enfermeira que liga a Callum dizendo que conhecia o seu pai e que tem algo para lhe contar continua a ser um mistério, sendo das personagens que mais curiosidade me suscita.Numa escrita simples, cheia de mistério e adrenalina, Gabrielle Lord prende-nos nesta história e à personagem carismática que é Callum. Embora tivesse havido um ou outro momento em que senti algum exagero aliado a uma certa impossibilidade de tal suceder, está a ser um prazer acompanhar a luta pela sobrevivência levada a cabo por este jovem rapaz ,que de um momento para o outro parece ter perdido tudo, praticamente só dependo de si para subsistir. Aguardo com alguma expectativa a continuação.(http://magia-livros.blogspot.pt/2012/...)

    The first pages of this story are really bad for several reasons. First, the story is bad because it keeps on separating sections for about every paragraph for every five minutes. The story talks about a boy that gets out at mid night because his father was murdered and he wants to get more information on him. So they separate the book a lot, like for every paragraph or two its starts like a new chapter, which is 12:05, then 12:09, and that is very frustrating and annoying. The second reason is that the story explains just the main part like the introduction of the character. The story jumps right into the story, which is very hard to understand because there is a story before it, which is a series. These are the reasons why the first pages of this book horrible.The rating of this book would be a 1 for several reasons. First it doesn’t start from the beginning of the story and it’s hard to understand. For example, at least the story should explain again from the beginning and introduce everything. Second reason is that the story doesn’t identify if its story 1 or 2 or 3. It should have the numbers and identify that the story is a series. This book is one of the most boring books for several reasons. The first reason is that it tries to be realistic, but it’s not good enough. For example the character named Cal has 365 days to live and gangs kidnap him. The thing that shows that it is not very realistic is when he jumps so high to other fences and to other rooftops. The thing that it shows that the book is also realistic is that the story gives specific time and it also talks about his father, which gives kind of suspense because he does not know any information about him, he just heard that he was murdered. The other reason that the book is not very realistic is when he tries to go and find his information about his father. It is obvious that a kid can’t find that much information and fight a gang to get his father. These are the reasons why the book is boring.The rating of this book would stay 1 for several reasons. First, the book is boring and it has no differences in chapters because the reader does not understand anything if he did not read the 1st book. Second reason is that the book is not interesting and does not attract the reader’s attention and it does not change if a reader reads it or not. It does not make him want to read it to know the thing that will happen. These are the reasons why the rating of this book is staying a 1.

    Okay, I was very skeptical after the first book. There are just too many crazy things happening to this kid! But now it is just how the story goes and it is fun and exciting and a little ridiculous, and I am enjoying it and ready for more.
