Frequently bought together
Despite the ever-popular pull of the genre there are surprisingly few thrillers in the YA genre that create authentic relationships between protagonists, but with its great cast of characters Daly has pitched it perfectly and the burgeoning relationship between Katie and Peter Davenport is touchingly rendered and feels very real. Both are well nuanced and sensitively drawn protagonists with a host of obstacles for them to overcome but Daly keeps us guessing to the very end with a final reveal that's sure to have far-reaching implications for Katie and her younger siblings Andrew and Mikey.
A superb read that will surely appeal to fans of The Hunger Games and Twilight, The Academy is recommended without reservation.

"Unique, intense, and suspenseful. A story with compelling characters that pull you into the author's world and keep you reading from beginning to end. Intriguing start to a new series." --New York Times Best Selling Author Jami Brumfield
"Daly crafts superb dialogue . . . A romance with a hint of mystery and a well-developed protagonist. Perfectly sets up a planned sequel."
From the Author
CJ Daly believes dynamic characters and high stake conflict are necessary elements to create a page-turning read. And a good way to create instant conflict is to crash opposing worlds. The Academy Saga is set on the lonely plains of New Mexico, where 17-year-old Katie Connelly has to work 24-7 just to help her family survive. CJ contrasts Kate's scrabbly, land-locked hometown with the lush grandeur of the Northern California coast. Located just across the awe-inspiring Golden Gate Bridge in Marin County, The Academy is a secret government institution posing as an elite military academy. When two of their elite cadets crash into Katie's invisible life, sparks begin to fly . . . and long-kept secrets begin to reveal themselves.
Weaving the secrets of the Connelly Clan and The Academy's charismatic ambassadors into the story, The Academy Saga transforms into a beautiful tapestry, interwoven with mystery, suspense, and romance.
