It's homecoming week at Ashley Waters, but Sang Sorenson has a lot more on her mind than dresses and crowns. Silas's troubled past—full of secrets he and his team thought they'd buried—comes back to haunt him, threatening to ruin everything.
Silas tries to deal, but guilt weighs heavily on him and Sang realizes she might be the only one who can help him keep it together.
Bomb threats have increased. They are followed at every turn. The principal is resorting to drastic measures to make sure they're all going to be kicked out. Pushed to their limits, Kota, Victor, Silas, Nathan, Gabriel, Luke and North, along with other members of the Academy, have finally had enough. This time, more Academy members are brought in to help hunt down the culprit, and keep everyone safe. It'll cost the boys, but in the end, even a bittersweet victory is better than disaster.
This time, they're getting what they need. All it takes is learning the line of when to let go, and when to never give up
The Academy, Together

This review may contain spoiler if you haven’t read book #6

Now the “kissing” rule is out, all the boys are getting their first kiss with Sang. If you’ve read the last book you would know how, and when Sang’s first kiss happened. Since that has been on the boys’ mind, thus it’s really only a matter of time that Sang has her first kiss with all the boys. I thought the way these kisses happened were very sweet, a couple were a little intense, because the long build-up and high anticipation.

 

What I really like is how the series progress in a fairly steady pace, which means the story and the characters have plenty of time to develop. I am very happy with how Ms Stone has managed to move forward with Sang’s relationship with each of the boys, while at the same time to not make the situation awkward. Now we are in book 7, I feel Sang really came a long way. Sang is no longer timid and easily intimated, she is slowly building up her confidence, learning who she is, and who she wants to be.
Overall, I thought the story plot of House of Koraba was alright. I felt this book was more like a bridge for the series onward from all the school dramas. I thought the bomb threat scenario was getting repetitive, and nothing really major has happened in this book, except maybe we are getting closer to finding out who this “V” guy is. What I enjoyed the most from House of Koraba, was the continue relationship-building for the boys and Sang. I just can’t get enough of this series, sure it’s a little unusual (nine boys and one gal) but I really enjoy the nontraditional romance, the author’s writing style, and the intriguing characters (academy boys), it’s really addictive!

 

Happy Reading!! XO
