Synopsis: Reeling from the latest attack by a mysterious enemy, the Quatra Fleet Academy is finally admitting students from every planet in the solar system after centuries of exclusivity.
Hotshot pilot Vesper, an ambitious Tridian citizen, dreams of becoming a captain – but when she loses her spot to a brilliant, wisecracking boy from the wrong side of the asteroid belt, it makes her question everything she thought she knew. Growing up on the toxic planet Deva, Cormak will take any chance he can get to escape his dead-end life and join the Academy – even if he has to steal someone’s identity to do it. Arran was always considered an outsider on icy Chetire, always dreaming of something more than a life working in the mines. Now an incoming cadet, Arran is looking for a place to belong – he just never thought that place would be in the arms of a Tridian boy. And Orelia is hiding a dark secret – she’s infiltrated the Academy to complete a mission, one that threatens the security of everyone there. But if anyone finds out who she really is, it’ll be her life on the line.
These cadets will have to put their differences aside and become a team to defend their world from a cunning enemy – but the danger might be lurking closer to home than they think…
Oh. My. God. That’s what I have to say about this brand new series from the amazing Kass Morgan. She’s an absolute powerhouse when it comes to impactful and remember-able sci-fis and she’s created yet another series in which I want to be apart of (and that I can see a TV series for hint hint TV producers out there). The writing was fantastic, it just pulls you into this amazing plot and the characters are super well developed. I’d probably say this series is better than her 100 series. I also loved the LGBT+ characters and the diversity of them as well. I feel like if you liked Ender’s Game, then you would love this book. The book also feels realistic. One of the first things you learn about this book is that the this is the first year other planets/cultures are allowed to enter this prestigious academy. This is very true to history and even modern time (and unfortunately, the oppression of one or many groups by one dominant group will never completely die). While it broke my heart to read about the oppression of these other planets, it added a realistic feel to the book.
The only concern I had about the book was that I felt the relationship one of the characters has with her teacher feels a bit weird and can be concerning for younger readers to see considering that there are teachers out there who prey on young children. Other than that slight concern, I felt the book was completely fantastic and well paced. It’ll definitely be a hit when it comes out!
Verdict: I smell a TV series in the making!
