Academy 7 by Anne Osterlund
With a past too terrible to speak of, and a bleak, lonely future ahead of her, Aerin Renning is shocked to find she has earned a place at the most exclusive school in the universe. Aerin excels at Academy 7 in all but debate, where Dane Madousin—son of one of the most powerful men in the Alliance— consistently outtalks her. Fortunately Aerin consistently outwits him at sparring. They are at the top of their class until Dane jeopardizes everything and Aerin is unintentionally dragged down with him. When the pair is given a joint punishment, an unexpected friendship—and romance—begins to form. But Dane and Aerin both harbor dangerous secrets, and the two are linked in ways neither of them could ever have imagined. . . .
Ok first of all did anyone else know this book was in the future/ a different world system? Because I had absolutely no idea! It was a great surprise and I think I might have liked it better because if that.
Moving on, this book was incredible! The characters were inviting and very believable. The plot was fast moving and constantly interesting. It was also written very well in that I felt like I was in the book at times! The plot also kept twising and turning back and forth which was really good. The book also brought many different themes into the story that you would have not expected at least I didn't!
Anne's first book Aurelia was also very good but this book definitely topped it. I could not put it down. It is one of my new favorite books!
