Gabriel Coleman has always known he has distant relatives, but since his father's funeral, he's never heard a word from them.
However, Academy rules are clear: finding your family and putting them forward to the Academy to be vetted for adoption is a requirement of becoming a full-fledged member. If Gabriel doesn't complete the task, he'll be left behind.
But now that Sang Sorenson has found a trace of her mother's history, and it's leading to the same town Gabriel's family hails from, he has no excuse to put it off any longer.
Sang and Gabriel, along with other team members, are off across state lines to find out about their pasts. What really happened to Sang's mom? Why did Gabriel's family never contact him? What other secrets will they uncover?
The only thing they have to keep their sanity is each other, but even their love might not be enough to protect them from having to face family members who have long tried to erase them from their lives.
Sang and Gabriel must hold strong as they each face where they came from, knowing what they do next could ultimately change their lives forever.
The Academy, Intricate
Although it took a different direction I really liked the storyline.
