In The Academy, we follow Chris Parker and his trainee, Michael LaGuardia, to Japan, where a conclave of trainers is taking place. While the trainers swap cautionary tales and debate protocol, though, moves are being made that may change the Marketplace, and Chris's place in it, forever.

Loved the "ending" for Chris Parker, the stories twist at the end- even though a little disappointing, and the addition of the new characters. The setting was fantastic as set in Japan- a favorite culture. I enjoyed The Academy being longer and narrated again by the Jasicki, making the chapters and imagery come alive with a good amount of laughter...

Enjoyed the story on an individual, Robin, who needs to desperately be a slave and serve her trainer, owners... The way the story pans out has another twist toward the end much like the first book, The Marketplace. Book two does a very nice job at developing the desires of Robin as well as other people she meets. I'm ready for the third installment of this series and hopefully read more of Chris Parker, Alex, and Grendel. Now close your eyes just before you hear the gentle click of a tiny gold lock around a small chain...

In The Marketplace, the first book of the series, follow the trials and tribulations of four aspiring slaves as they undergo training hoping to be accepted into the secret underground society of masters and slaves known as the Marketplace. Under the firm hand of Grendel, the sharp eye of Alexandra, and the painful leather strap in the hands of Chris, these men and women will find some of their hardest challenges come from within themselves.

Good book, but some of the accents sounded the same and difficult to separate them at times. Similar to the TV series 2
