~*~ Review ~*~ The Apollo Academy (Apollo Academy, #1) by Kimberly P. Chase

The Apollo Academy (The Apollo Academy #1)

Source: Goodreads
Take off with this dynamic, thrill-seeking, sexy New Adult Science Fiction series debut. Welcome to the exclusive Apollo Academy, where Aurora is about to discover that achieving her dream is only the first step towards her future.

As the heiress to Titon Technologies, eighteen-year-old Aurora Titon can have whatever she wants—clothes, expensive gadgets, anything money can buy. But all she really wants is to escape her pampered, paparazzi-infested life for the stars. Becoming the first female pilot to train as an astronaut for the exclusive Apollo Academy is exactly the chance for which she has been waiting.
Flying is everything she ever dreamed, her best friend also got into the Academy, and the paparazzi is banned from campus. Everything would be perfect, but for her reciprocated crush on a fellow student, the sexy astronaut bent on making her life hell, and the fact that someone keeps trying to kill her.

The most important education doesn’t happen in the classroom…

My Review:
Firstly I would like to thank the lovely author and her publishing team for kindly providing me with a copy of The Apollo Academy to read and review.
We meet Aurora Titon; a badass female pilot with a good heart and plenty of ambition. She goes after her dreams with no excuses and doesn’t even let attempts on her life get in her way. Unfortunately for her, she is the heiress to Titon Technologies, her father’s company. She was kind, clever and thinks before she acts. I love how for once in her life she wanted to fit and blend it and that she hated attention from the paparazzi.
I was immediately sucked into Aurora’s world and found myself flipping through the pages furiously to find out what happens next. Aurora’s just a normal girl who wants to be the first female pilot at The Apollo Academy.
Zane; Also known as an unknown, he is constantly struggling to get by.
He wants nothing more than his status as an unknown to be erased and join society as a normal citizen, the way he should of when he was born….
Although his strong aptitude for techy items might be his ticket to freedom and of course into the The Apollo Academy, unfortunately for him he faces a different set of challenges. Unknowns usually aren’t permitted in the academy and if anyone finds out his real status, it could mean BIG trouble him.
Sky is the academy’s star astronaut. He comes across as arrogant at first and, for some reason, doesn’t like Aurora very much, is this a hidden agenda on his side? Aurora really nailed him in the head. She didn’t let him get away with his constant bullshit and she called him out on it too…..GO GIRL!
I just can’t pick whose Team I am on……. 😦
The secondary characters were great too. We have Kaylana who drew me in because of her humour, her caring nature and the fact that she “protected” those she considered friends, we have Akemi, he is Zane’s best-friend at the academy, who seems to have the hots for Kaylana, and it’s clear that she reciprocates his feelings.
As you read, you will uncover more secrets about these characters, some may even surprise you.
Very Different Story, than all your Average books.
This one Is about Space which is awesome!
I have never read a book about space, this is my first one and I’m glad
The Apollo Academy is a great introduction for what I know will be an exciting and slightly nerdy series.
