Moon Bases and DNA: My The Truth Hunters Review

A couple of weeks ago, I read and reviewed The Unsound Theory, a YA sci-fi novel that sounded perfect for fans of the Aurora Cycle. Well, I liked it so much that I had to read the sequel immediately ... so here's how that went!

Book Title: The Truth Hunters
Author: Emilia Zeeland
Year: 2018
Genre: Science Fiction
Number of Pages (According to Goodreads): 484
My Rating: 4 out of 5

Book description (from Goodreads):

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 the truth 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.

I really enjoyed the twists and turns in the first Unsound Theory book, and hoo boy, this sequel did NOT let up with the roller coaster! The plot felt a little less contained than the first book, which meant I wasn’t necessarily as immersed, but getting to know all the characters better totally made up for it. Plus, we got to see more of the places in the Unsound Theory universe, including a super cool moon base.

Ever since I read Aurora Rising, I’ve been wanting a series that shows the characters actually going to a space academy and having adventures while there, and the STAR Academy series is totally fulfilling my desire for that. I’m planning to read the third book very soon because I HAVE to know how it ends :D So if you too loved Squad 312 but wish you could have seen them actually going through the Aurora Academy, I definitely recommend this series!

The Truth Hunters is currently available on Amazon, so if this sounds like something you'd like, go ahead and snag your copy now :D
