    Kurzbeschreibung

    Cover design by Chelsey Bateson. (designosaurus.ca)


    CHADLEITO@YAHOO.COM

    Every six months, 450 fifteen-year-olds are kidnapped from their homes across the world. These kidnappings happen in the span of a week, as reliable as clockwork. The victims don’t know each other, or their kidnappers. The fifteen-year-olds either end up with a ‘missing persons’ file gathering dust in a filing cabinet, or they are assumed dead. No one ever discovers what happens to them. The families move on, forever missing their lost loved one. Unknown to them, their child, grandchild, or sibling, has been taken to the Academy.

    The Academy, as its members will boast, is the most secretive, powerful organization in the world. The workings of the organization are revealed on a need-to-know basis, and the organization has decided that no one, other than its most trusted members, need to know its true business. Outsiders don’t even know it exists. Occasionally, a hunter or hiker will stumble upon the Academy’s remote location. They are quickly taken care of.

    When Asa Palmer, age fifteen, is out running in the woods behind his house, he is taken. Twelve hours later, after being tied and bound, and transported through an underground train station, he finds himself amidst a series of beautifully crafted structures that rest in between a circle of five secluded mountains. He has been chosen as a candidate for the Academy. Each six months, the Academy kidnaps more recruits than they can actually use. For Asa Palmer to live he must undergo body-altering mutations and compete with his cohorts in a series of dangerous and strategy ridden tasks to prove that he is worthy of the Academy’s time.

    3.0 von 5 Sternen Clumsy writting but not entirely terrible. 1. Juli 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
    I am only half done so I might still change my mind.
    First: The book has quite a few grammar and spelling or word errors. If that bothers you read something else.
    The science doesn't make much sense, but that isn't unusual. Just treat it like magic.
    The main problem is that it isn't very well written which is why I couldn't give it more than 3 stars.

    But anyway I mainly came here because something annoyed me and it is an (in my opinion minor) SPOILER:
    Is the MC completely incapable of listening? They have talked about his father to him and in front of him. He even remembers that his mother thinks the crows come from his father (though at least that was long ago) and he already noticed that the crows were probably from the academy. But he seems to be completely oblivious to it. I think one of the earlier instances he brushed it of as his father just being a truck driver, but you would think, that he would at least think about the new information.
    Also I know he finds his love interest beautiful, now please vary the adjectives you use to describe her a bit or don't use them so damn often.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen ein sehr tolles buch! 29. März 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Die ideen im buch, mit den genetischen "aktivierungen" fand ich sehr faszinierend. Eigentlich nicht so mein genre, fand das buch aber sehr gut. Schade nur das es keine fortsetzung geben soll, soweit ich es verstehe, aber man kann ja hoffen! Sehr gut, hat meine empfehlung!

    4.0 von 5 Sternen Gute Geschichte 16. März 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
    Diese Story ist mal etwas anderes. Der Schreibstil ist gut, die Story originell. Die Fähigkeiten der Protagonisten können z.B. "hinzukaufen" vergrößert/verbessert werden Ich hoffe sehr auf eine Fortsetzung.

    4.0 von 5 Sternen Mal was Neues 16. November 2013
    Von Videye
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
    Auch wenn das Buch wahrscheinlich ein Stück weit jüngeres Publikum (Teenager) adressieren soll, war ich doch erstaunt, wie gut ich es fand.

    Die Geschichte ist spannend erzählt und wirkt unverbraucht. Ich hatte nicht das Gefühl, das in den letzten 100 Büchern schon zehnmal gelesen zu haben. Am Anfang brauchte ich ein wenig, um mich in die Handlung hinein zu finden.

    Der Schreibstil hat mich manchmal an Bücher von Stephen King erinnert. Vielleicht gab es da inszenatorische Anleihen. Vielleicht war das aber auch nur mein Eindruck beim Lesen.

    Nicht vollkommen perfekt für mich, finde ich den Inhalt aber fesselnd genug für 4 Sterne.

    4.0 von 5 Sternen Unexpected 4. Mai 2013
    Von Thomas J. Kosar Jr. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition
    First, I am just going to say that this review is for both books. You really can't just stop at book one anyway, and I don't feel like posting the same review twice. I was not expecting the story to go the route it did, and I have to say it was refreshing and intriguing. At the beginning I did say to myself a few times "well where is this going?" but in the end I'm glad I stuck with it. There is something about the writing that pulls you into the main character's experience and makes it relatable. You completely feel the awkwardness of the "fishies" dormitory processing, flashing back to the first time you ever had to get a physical, or the awkwardness of your first locker room-type experience. The whole no speaking for the first week... I realized I was nervous about talking or making a noise myself. In fact, I still feel a hesitation before I say something. The books were a nice, easy read. However, there is one reason I did not give the books 5 stars. These books are in desperate need of a proofread. It was kind of like reading that school term paper that you have read a million times and can't find anything wrong with it until you read it again after you've turned it in and are appalled at all the errors you didn't catch. There were their/there errors, missing words, missing letters in a few words, and parts where you could tell the author was going to say something one way, but changed it and left an extra word from the original way. Now I know it sounds horrible, but even with the errors it doesn't really affect the flow of the books or your ability to read them. I think maybe I had to reread a sentence or two again only a few times. If someone says he/she just couldn't possibly continue reading the book because of all the errors, he or she is just being a stickler and dramatic and needs to get over his or herself. The books are a fun journey regardless of the errors and you would be missing out if you decided not to read them for that reason. Besides, I like the idea of the proceeds going to charity. Maybe someone can help the author out and donate their proof reading services.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent Read 27. Mai 2013
    Von David Wolstenholm - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
    This is a good read. The characters are well developed and I can easily relate to them. This is an interesting story that you won't read anywhere else. It makes you wonder if any of it is true. As good as this book is it is a bit long for me. It says it's 163 pages but it's actually much longer than that. However, if you like getting lost in novels then this book is for you.

    4.0 von 5 Sternen The plot and characters are enthralling 16. Juni 2013
    Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
    I loved it. The plot was fast paced and the characters really pulled me in. I cannot wait for more by this author. The only drawback is that the book could use a good editor, there are a number of misspellings and typos throughout the book that keep me from giving it five stars.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen Read this from cover to cover on night of purchase. 5. September 2013
    Von forlotto - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
    This is a very gripping novel. The storyline of Asa life after a wicked virus takes his parents turns his already crazy world into a giant drop down a rabbit hole. The mood is set very well by the author, using interesting word choices and vivid details of both roles of the characters actions and mental states as well as the state of the world he is living in. Nicely written did not detect any big grammar issues. Very original story as well I have not seen or read anything along these lines. Finally I would like to commend the author for donating the proceeds of this book that he does to charity. It takes a lot to go outside of yourself and make such a great effort to support something you believe in. Thank You and with that said you have earned every star of approval and extras in my book!
