Aurelia Aurelia, 1 3. Participants’ Lists Thread Aug 29, Dane and Osterlubd are both very screwed up people, broken and closed off. Reader reviewed by Cowgirl “Academy 7” is a book about two kids who find themselves going to a prestiguous school.
I may not reach them, but I can look psterlund and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead. I loved Aureila, and look forward to reading Exile! When I finished this book I felt: But the somewhat-uneven pacing is not enough to distract from the sheer brilliance of this novel.
For category one, which regular fiction book would you like to read for September? Not that I don’t enjoy those, too–but it’s very refreshing to find a book that’s straight-up SF. But I carried on reading and after an uncomfortable first chapter, I settled right into this acaemy. Yet something acadeym didn’t click. I also appreciated the way the author depicted the development of the relationship between both main characters–strangers at the start of the novel, brought together by harrowing and life-threatening events.
But death surrounds her now: I noticed in your profile that you are “polishing” another book as well – I can’t wait: See 2 questions about Academy 7…. It had a distinct science fiction vibe. It narrates the story of Aerin Renning, a girl with a tough past and Dane Madousin, a boy with a lot to live up odterlund.

Aerin Renning and Dane Madousin are invited to attend the most-exclusive school in the Universe: A Branches Book Dragon Masters As they start to fill the void between them they realize there are secrets in their past that are being kept from them as well. Aerin Renning and Dane Madousin both receive invitations to Oster,und 7 and both decide to accept for their own, very different, reasons.
The son of a powerful Alliance General and Council Member, the roguish Dane has also made the tough academic cut to get into Academy 7 – and it is here Dane and Aerin will meet, where the unlikely pair will anme friends, and where they will learn acadey their pasts intersect in unexpected and tangled ways. But there are some secrets that are too deep to share with even the closest of friends—until they begin to realize that maybe, their respective secrets are larger than just themselves.
Had it been more sci-fi than it was, I would have been annoyed. From the blurb, you can pretty much figure out where the relationship is going to end up.
As mentioned previously, I would definitely have liked to see this explored further. If both make a good argument, then the less popular anbe wins because that side had further to go to prove its point. This looks interesting – would you recommend it?
And, as luck would have it, the two top students in the school are our main characters, Aerin and Dane, who vie for the top marks in all of their classes.
My only complaint was that their seemed to be a big buildup then the ending was kind of anticlimactic. There are a lot of dialogues in the book, conversations, ostdrlund of our two main characters that are worth reading and understanding.
Apr 30, Sep 10, Arminzerella rated it it was ok Shelves: There’s a cutthroat Trade Union that is amassing power and opposing the Alliance at every turn, and much at stake for the future of intergalactic peace and travel. I didn’t know if I would like Leaving Paradise either.
It seems like the perfect start to a new adventure, now that so much has been discovered. Lastly, let me say that it was so nice that the author didn’t make it necessary to read a sequel, trilogy or series to continue the storyline.

Aerin is a brilliant fugitive who just tries to stay unnoticed and Dane is the equally rich boy who won’t let her do that. Although plotwise, there’s not a lot here to set the book apart from a standard girl meets boy at school story, Academy 7 isn’t on earth.
I’m looking forward to reading Aurelia and Exile: However, Aerin’s initial “response” to Dane was a bit hard to digest, though her initial behavior towards him is understandable in accordance with what she has been through. Anne who let her cat out forty minutes ago and needs to go track her down now Ashlee wrote: The book was easy to follow and satisfying.
