Sang Sorenson dreams of what life might be like for her in the Academy, but joining isn't as easy as simply writing an exam or passing an interview. She'll need to pull the team together to get them on her side in order for it to work, which is harder than it sounds. The boys will do anything to protect her, which, for some, means keeping her out.
But that’s not all that’s going on in Sang’s complicated life. After a shocking revelation, Gabriel Coleman splinters himself off from everyone, avoiding not just his Academy team, but even going so far as to avoid Sang. Desperate to bring him back and get him on her side, Sang digs deep into his past to try to discover a way to reach out to him.
His truth is riddled with tragic events, but with the help of Kota, Victor, Silas, Nathan, Luke and North, she might be able to reach out to him before envy and despair drag him too far down to be saved.
The Academy, Deeply Bonded
The Other Side of Envy begins with Sang wanting to spend more time with Gabriel. She misses him, and wants to let him know she really cares about him. The problem is a world of trouble seems to follow Sang where ever she goes, and now she has people following her and some other issues with Gabriel as well. And it all comes to a head for her when she finds out about the other team that has a bird on it, and how they make it work.
I really enjoyed this book a whole lot. I was very excited about Sang's reaction to the other team. I'm only a little nervous about how some of the other guys will react, but I hope they find out soon. I loved the whole plot line of this one. And I really enjoyed all of the characters as well. It was nice to see more of Gabriel too. The only issue I had was it was the ending. I couldn't believe that's how it ended, and that Gabriel was going to keep secrets from Sang. It drove me nuts. But now I'm looking forward to the next book!
