Phoebe Pope is starting her studying at Green Lane Academy. The campus is split into two with the mundane being the place everybody sees but underneath is a whole different story. A place for shapeshifter's to train as spies. Phoebe has classes in both and leads a double life during her training. She has her own issues to deal with, but with danger brewing, Phoebe has to be alert with every step. Her love interest Colten seems too good to be true and maybe hiding secrets all of his own. I don't want to give too much away so I'll stop there but this book has so much more to offer.
It would be easier if you can sit down and read this in uninterrupted chunks as there is a lot to digest. This is the start of a series of books which I'd love to read more.
4.5 stars out of 5.
*I received this book in exchange for an honest review thanks to Netgalley*
Sixteen-year-old Phoebe Pope has enrolled at the Campus Below: a spy academy for shape-shifters hidden deep beneath the grounds of a boarding school whose humans unknowingly protect it. There, thanks to a carefully planned schedule, she leads a double life: spy trainee Below and normal teenager Above.
As if two course loads, concealing a secret power she alone wields, and coping with her father’s recent death weren’t enough, Phoebe finds herself developing major feelings for actor and teen heartthrob Colten Chase, who attends the Campus Above and appears to be majoring in winning Phoebe’s heart. But when officials learn that Phoebe may be at the center of a startling prophecy, she becomes the target of shape-shifting assassins who will stop at nothing to suppress the truth.
Good read with good characters. Loved how Phoebe and Colton were together. 4*. Netgalley and xpresso book tours.
The author has created a world which, whilst clearly drawing inspiration from other books in this genre, nevertheless has a voice and identity which is refreshing to read.
The characters have depth and an element of realism in their interactions, despite the paranormal element to the activities, and that, coupled with a reasonable storyline, turned this into an enjoyable novel.
I voluntarily reviewed a reviewer copy of this book.
