Bobby Ether and the Academy by R. Scott Boyer

Bobby Ether and the AcademyBobby Ether and the Academy by R. Scott Boyer
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Bobby Ether and the AcademyGoodreads Summary:
"There is no such thing as magic." That's what the mysterious stranger named Cassandra tells Bobby after helping him escape from the small army of secret agents who surround his house. The elegantly dressed older woman with the fancy car takes him someplace that appears safe, but can she be...

This was an interesting book of adventure. After Bobby discovers his ability he is never really sure who he can really trust. This book had a lot of action and some suspense, as well as unique abilities. I found the concept of the abilities of using energy to be very interesting. At the Academy Bobby makes both friends and enemies, he learns, he discovers things that the people in charge of the Academy didn't want him to learn. He also has trouble using his abilities, especially in the beginning, which is very r. Will he be able to get past his emotions and connect with the ability that is inside him?

I liked how Bobby wasn't afraid to be friends with who he wanted to be friends with. The other character were also very interesting and likable. I wish I was as smart as Jinx and Master Jong's determination to fulfill his purpose through all the odds was a very nice characteristic. Some of the characters (I can't say who) were very cruel and power hungry, and some were just plain creepy.

Something I didn't like as much, was how Bobby believed all of the lies was told. I can't say that I wouldn't have done the same thing, but it was kind of annoying at times.

Throughout the book discoveries were made, many of which I saw coming. Overall this was a quick and interesting read, one I liked but didn't love. The ending was a cliff hanger, and I hope there will be another book.

I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for a review, but was not required to give one.
