Publisher's Summary

The time has finally come for Sang Sorenson to be formally introduced to the Academy. Protocol dictates the boys keep the details of Sang's official introduction to the Academy a secret from her. The only thing they can advise her to do is to work on what will become her mantra: She is determined to stay with her team, no matter what.

Despite her wishes, however, the boys are second-guessing her place with them, concerned for her safety. With dangers all around and threats closing in, some of the boys are questioning if this is the right time to bring her to meet the Academy at all.

Sang is challenged with being the brave face among them and instilling the confidence needed to keep her with them. However, in order to appear compliant with the Academy's rules, she has to be willing to listen and try their suggestions. As the boys have suspected and feared, the council wants to see how she'll work with a different team. An all-girl team. She has no choice but to go along with the proposal or risk losing a shot at the Academy.

But when the Academy's inner world is revealed to her, Sang knows that she's finally found her place - somewhere she belongs - and she sees a future with them. The deeper she gets, the more she sees how she can make a difference. Learning what she is capable of and the impact she can have, she feels obligated to help. There's so few girls, and they need her.

The guys try to stick to their plan, but every team must pay their debts, and the cost of keeping her might be more than any of them can afford.

It's up to Sang alone to prove to the Academy where she truly belongs - but can she resist the call of a new team that needs her?

Naration is horribly whiney on this one.

The others have been fine, for some reason Natalie makes everyone sound like petulant toddlers in this one. Bummer.

Good story but...

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

I think the narrator came off overly whiny and annoying at times.

Any additional comments?

I love this story so even though the narrator was annoying at times I still finished it.

I love this series!

I love this series. The book is every bit as good as the others. The narrator did sound a tad bit whiny though which is not true to the character she was portraying. I hope #11 is released on audio soon!

Great story, so-so narration

I didn’t like the narrator’s depiction of Sang in this story: whiney and, in some spots, as if she were about to throw a tantrum. This wasn’t my view of Sang at all when I read the book; in no spots did the author state or hint at this emotion. Very disappointed, especially since I quite enjoyed the narration in the previous books.

Wonderful series, book and narration!

One of my very favorite books in the series! It made me laugh and cry and kept me thoroughly entertained. Sang’s official introduction to The Academy...and wow, what a week it was! She ran into old acquaintances and made some new friends and was made into a leader...and was traumatized beyond belief. Poor girl. And the ending... holy cow!
Natalie does a great job with the narration, but is starting to make Sang sound really whiny around the guys. It’s like she’s reverted to baby talk. Eek!😬. But with all she’s taking on with the multiple characters in this book, it’s still amazing!

Terrible narrator but otherwise a good story.

I love this book and the series however the narrator really spoilt this for me.
She made Sang into an irritating, whinging girl which I don’t get the impression of from the books.
Buy the books instead.
