Maddison James is about to discover some truths about the world. Firstly … supernaturals exist. WTF? Secondly … she is one, even though no one seems to know exactly what kind. Double WTF. Thirdly … she’s about to go back to school. Well, things just got a little more interesting. The Supernatural Academy is where shifters, vampires, magic users, and fey are educated. Where they are taught about their abilities, and how to function in the human world. Maddison already has the human part down, but this supernatural thing is an entirely new dangerous game. Example one: mean girls who can actually turn you into a frog. Example two: Asher Locke, a god at the Academy. Not literally … well, who knows for sure. He certainly acts the part, as do all of his minions who worship him. Asher drives her crazy, because apparently gorgeous and arrogant is her thing. Sparks fly between them, and the more they’re thrown together, the more Asher is determined to figure out what’s been blocking her abilities.Until the moment the truth is revealed, and they find out nothing in this supernatural world is what they thought. Including each other.
I don’t know why I have an addiction to these “academy” books but I think my addiction may be tapering off. 🤷🏻♀️😅 These academy titles have been flooding my Kindle Unlimited recommendations lists, which sort of bugs me because I want to see what else is available to read outside of what they recommend. But here we go, another academy book…
I do enjoy reading about supernatural beings all in one school, learning about their abilities and getting along with each other. It just makes the whole typical school story so much more extra. This is a new adult urban fantasy with sex scenes so it definitely gets hot and steamy.
Maddison James had been living among humans all her life, thinking she was human until she finds out she’s not. Other supernaturals can’t quite figure out what she is though, but she is very powerful and has an affinity for water. Being at the academy has given her a new life with structure and friends, something she didn’t have growing up. She learns about the origins of supernaturals and the lost kingdom of Atlantis. I really like Maddi, she’s fun, spunky and knows herself. She embraces her uniqueness and can stand up for herself against the mean girls. Maddi also got herself some cool new friends in Ilia and Larissa.
The lore of Atlantis has always been fascinating to me and I thought this book did a fun take on it. There are five very hot guys at the academy and they are nicknamed the Atlantean Five. Of course she is drawn to the hottest guy of the group, Asher Locke, and he to her. I was afraid this was going to be a reverse harem book and I’m not so much into that, so I’m glad it wasn’t. Also it’s not a bully romance, hooray for me, I had way enough of that last one so it kind of turned me off.
As you see in the blurb there is a lot of WTF’s and cursing going on in the book so if you don’t like cursing, this book isn’t for you. There was action, humor, and romance which was a nice balance and made it a quick read. I will be reading the next book because I need to find out what Maddi is exactly and if the bad guys are really bad. See, I’m already looking forward to the next book, why are these academy books so addicting? 😂 WTF. 🤦🏻♀️
