"November is trapped. At the mysterious Academy Absconditi, a school that's completely off the grid, there's no electricity, no internet, and a brutal eye-for-an-eye punishment system. Classes include everything from knife-throwing and poisons to the art of deception. And the other students? All children of the world's most elite strategists, in training to become assassins, spies, and master manipulators. November Adley doesn't know why she's been sent to this place, or the secrets that make up its legacy, but she'll quickly discover that allies are few in a school where competition is everything. When another student is murdered, all eyes turn to November, who must figure out exactly how she fits in before she is found guilty of the crime...or becomes the killer's next victim." --… (mais)

Ich liebe das Buch, es hat mich schon von der ersten Seite an völlig begeistern können. Sofort war es super spannend und nahm in dieser Spannung auch nie wirklich ab, eigentlich nahm diese eher zu. Dazu dann noch die wirklich interessante Idee, das gesamte Geschehen - eine Geschichte ganz nach meinem Geschmack, mit spannenden Figuren und Hintergründen, die mich schon jetzt wahninnig neugierig auf Band 2 zurück lassen.

In diesem Buch bieten sich viele Gelegenheiten so gut wie jedem Charakter zu misstrauen, man weiß nie wirklich sicher, wem man wirklich trauen kann und ob alle so sind, wie sie sich geben. Außerdem konnte ich hervorragend mitfiebern und mir immer wieder neue Theorien ausdenken, denn genau wie die Protagonistin wird man lange sehr im dunkeln gelassen und erfährt nur langsam mehr, was für mich ein klarer Pluspunkt ist. So ist zu jeder Zeit alles möglich und die Spannung wird einfach immer Größer, während die Fantasie immer mehr mit einem durchgeht. Ich liebe solche Geschichten, vor allem dieses Thema rund um Geheimgesellschaften und Agenten, es ist und bleibt faszinierend.

Ein unheimlich tolles Buch, mit einem sehr angenehmen Schreibstil, der es einem möglich macht, das Buch in eins durchzulesen. Allerdings gestaltet sich ein pausieren hier ohnehin sehr schwer, denn es gibt kaum eine Stelle im Buch, an der ich nicht gern weitergelesen hätte. Man muss einfach wissen wie es weiter geht und wie es enden wird. Und auch wenn man bei keinem Charakter weiß, ob man ihm wirklich trauen kann, so gibt es trotzdem ein Paar, die ich mochte, auch wenn nicht alle so viel vorkamen, wie ich es mir gewünscht hätte. Ich hoffe also darauf, im nächsten Band auch von diesen mehr zu sehen, denn sie zeigten trotz ihrer kürzeren Auftritte gute Entwicklungen und lassen so viele weitere Möglichkeiten für das zweite Buch entstehen. Für mich war es eine besondere Geschichte, die ich auf diese Art noch nicht gelesen habe - trotz meiner liebe zu solchen Jugendbüchern. Meiner Meinung nach gab es hier nicht nur bekanntes, sondern auch neue Dinge. Einfach ein tolles Buch, das ich sehr empfehlen kann, es hat Spaß gemacht und konnte mich vollkommen von sich überzeugen.

Solid 3.5. I spent a lot of time trying to figure out what the hell was going on for the first 50% of the book. Lots of telling, little showing. Interest peaked enough to keep up with the series! ( )

When November’s ex-CIA father sends her away to boarding school to keep her safe, she is in no way prepared for Academy Absconditi. Its location is a secret, even from the students who live there, and the classes are on topics such as poisons and weaponry. The students and staff are also very secretive - there is a rule against sharing any personal information - and November has a hard time figuring out what exactly her father has gotten her into especially when she finds out that there have been a number of fatalities at the school over the past few years. Just as November is beginning to get adjusted and maybe even make a friend or two, another student is found dead and she finds herself under suspicion for a crime she didn’t commit.

When she arrives at Academy Absconditi, November is dropped into a school and a larger society, the Strategia, which she knows nothing about. Since the book is told from her first-person point of view, the reader is also in the dark about this secretive world. All of the other students have grown up knowing that they are a part of an elite society and have been learning its ways from their families their entire lives. Because secrecy is a way of life for the other students, the first half of the book is mostly devoted to November trying to figure out the most basic information about Academy Absconditit and the Strategia and how she fits into it all. This set up led to lots of infodumps and lengthy explanations incorporated into dialogue, which really made the plot drag at times. November is not particularly realistic or well developed and neither are any of the rest of the characters. The reader finds out through italicized flashbacks that her parents had actually given her hints or taught her Strategia skills throughout her life. These flashbacks don’t do much for the story and don’t do much to develop November’s character and make the plot drag even more. Overall, this novel definitely breaks the show don’t tell rule...a lot, and I never really felt invested in the character or the plot. ( )

This was an entertaining and engaging boarding school mystery. November was raised in a quiet Connecticut town by her father and aunt after her mother died. Now seventeen and with her family in danger, she is sent to Academy Absconditi - a hidden and dangerous boarding school - where she learns many of the secrets of her past that the other students already expect her to know.

Worst of all for November is that someone is either trying to kill her or trying to frame her for the murders of some other students. Though she has more physical skills than she realized she had, she is totally ignorant of the politics and rivalries here at the school which trains the best of the best of the Strategia secret society.

She isn't totally on her own. Her roommate Layla and Layla's brother Ash are willing to make a deal to give her some information. Of course, trusting anyone in the school is dangerous. Everyone has an agenda that is hidden from November.

I liked the worldbuilding that creates a secret society begun in ancient times, a society whose members have manipulated history for all that time. I enjoyed learning about the ins and outs and rivalries in the world along with November. I really enjoyed November. She was smart, gregarious, and trained by her father to think outside of the box. She'll need all her skills to survive her time at Academy Absconditi. ( )
