For Yalena Russo, peace was never an option.
Pushed out of the spotlight and into obedience, Yalena returns to a STAR Academy that has changed. In fact, the near worlds have changed, forcing her to walk the thin line between politics and mayhem.
Determined to find out why the Fians claim to be connected to her, Yalena has to track down whoever gave her up as a baby. But thetruth can be elusive. Yalena must employ her friends' talents—and her own—on a shadow quest to hunt down the answers. And all the while, she weaves herself deeper into the web of Fian lies. But what if some of them aren’t lies at all?
Throw in some grueling training, a few inconvenient affections, as well as a pair of mischievous freshmen, and second year at the Academy just got tricky.

Hang on to your hats friends, this is a roller-coaster ride. If you're looking for a page turner, then look no further. The STAR Academy series is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. The Truth Hunters is book 2 in the series and you'll want to read book 1 before starting it.

We pick right back up with Yalena and her friends as they return to STAR Academy for year two. Lots has changed as they prepare for whatever it is the Fians are up to. Yalena struggles to find her new place since she lost her leadership role, but eventually finds her footing again. With a few new freshmen to make things interesting, we follow the same cast from last year through their trials and tribulations. Except this time, there is even more at stake.

In true trilogy fashion, this book gets to the heart of the issues. There is so much information to uncover about Yalena's past, and trust me when I say it will leave you speechless. A roller-coaster of emotions is the only way to describe her story. You will want to keep reading till the last page and then you'll want more.

In addition to a personal quest for answers, we learn a lot about the nuances of the space world and everything really comes to life. Zeeland does a wonderful job of bringing you into the moment and making you feel like part of the story. There is a threat from the Fians that can't be ignored, but understanding the history makes it even harder to cope.

I wish book 3 was already out, but alas, we will have to wait for the next installment. Grab this fantastic sci-fi story now.

Emilia Zeeland is a Young Adult sci-fi writer and author of The STAR Academy Series. Even though she holds an international business degree and two Masters, Zeeland’s heart is full of love for speculative fiction.

Behind the Emilia Zeeland pseudonym, Em (as her friends call her) speaks six languages, loves to try on—and, sadly, also buy—dresses, and is a bit of a foodie.

Her own stories include coming-of-age tales, detailed worlds, unimaginable consequences, deep friendships, and romances that sneak up on you. She’s not afraid to push her characters to their limits and give them a depth that firmly plants them in readers’ hearts. In Zeeland’s writing, readers will be transported to another world, where they are not alone, but part of a tightly-knit, perfectly imperfect family.
