Night Shifter (Magical Creatures Academy#1)

magical creatures academy

Rina Nelle Mont has never been a part of the paranormal world. Until now.
Well, maybe not. The Magical Creatures Academy only accepts supernaturals, and she’s been invited to the school, but she has none of the powers she’s supposed to. Blip. Nada. Not even a spark.

The school hasn’t made a mistake in a century, but she might be the first one. That’s just the kind of thing that would happen to her. Especially since no one has any idea what kind of creature she’ll be … assuming her powers ever decide to make an appearance.

The Academy is the leading institution for paranormal creatures in the world. Its students are the finest of shifters, vampires, and fae.

Speaking of fine fae … Leander Verion, prince of the elves, is off limits. Not only is he arrogant, stubborn, and totally not her style, he’s her brother’s best friend. She will not fall for him. No way. Besides, he’s not interested … is he?

When two men who head the Shifter Alliance, a rebel faction of shapeshifters who seek to escape the control of the Enforcers—the supernatural police force—find out about Rina and her potential for a different kind of magic, they hunt her. For them, the stakes are as personal as they get.

Whether she’s ready or not, Rina is about to find out what she’s made of…


I read this in one sitting. I was looking for a nice easy read that I could sink my teeth into whilst I am off work ill. This book fit the bill perfectly. It was easy to follow and although the characters could have had more depth and character. But the story was fun and full of magic and I want to know more. I liked how all the different magical characters all went to the same school and interacted with each other.

The shifting of the shifters was really interesing. It’s not like in any other book I have read about shifters. The author paid attention to how they shifted, what it looked like, how long it took and the fact that some people find it easier than others. It all made perfect sense.

I liked the spark between Rina and the Prince, I do hope this is carried on farther in the next series. I also hope that Ry and Jas do not get together, that is one couple I would not support.

I am looking forward to finding out more about Rina’s powers, if she has any in the next book.

Books on my TBR

So I have not been reading as much as I would like lately. So I thought I would post this and see if anyone has read any of these and inspire me bump them up my TBR.

ARC (way behind on)

one white rose

A beast that can’t change. A girl fighting to stay human.

CAMILLE DREES is determined to find her biological mother’s killer and put her genetic past behind her. Not easy to do under the radar when you’re the new girl in school and the only albino. After falling victim to a prank, she is forced to be friends with the same girls who tricked her, while at the same time finds herself placed under the wing of a mysterious and elite organization.

Frenemies are one thing, but bizarre visions and the attention of a hot stranger another. When she realizes her new friends and murdered mother were all involved with the same organization now grooming them for some future destiny, she can’t lose the opportunity to gain information.

With the help of another classmate who shares her quest for the truth, they discover a world where angels and mermaids aren’t myths and evil exists. Now another life beckons to her, so it’s a race to find the killer before she’s the next victim or worse—becomes a monster herself.

An Urban Fantasy with Christian themes inspired by Beauty and the Beast. This is a stand-alone in the Kings of Renown Series.

I really do like fairytale retellings, sometimes they can be a little disappointing, maybe that’s why I’m a little hesitant to start but I am looking forward to it. Have you read it? What do you think?

a curse so dark and lonely

Fall in love, break the curse.

Cursed by a powerful enchantress to repeat the autumn of his eighteenth year, Prince Rhen, the heir of Emberfall, thought he could be saved easily if a girl fell for him. But that was before he turned into a vicious beast hell-bent on destruction. Before he destroyed his castle, his family, and every last shred of hope.

Nothing has ever been easy for Harper. With her father long gone, her mother dying, and her brother constantly underestimating her because of her cerebral palsy, Harper learned to be tough enough to survive. When she tries to save a stranger on the streets of Washington, DC, she’s pulled into a magical world.

Break the curse, save the kingdom.

Harper doesn’t know where she is or what to believe. A prince? A curse? A monster? As she spends time with Rhen in this enchanted land, she begins to understand what’s at stake. And as Rhen realizes Harper is not just another girl to charm, his hope comes flooding back. But powerful forces are standing against Emberfall . . . and it will take more than a broken curse to save Harper, Rhen, and his people from utter ruin.

I really like the look of this one. So much so that I bought it the other day not realising I had it on ARC, it’s what I get for having so many ARCs I can never remember which ones I get approved and which ones have been declined.



Thomas Fawkes is turning to stone, and the only cure to the Stone Plague is to join his father’s plot to assassinate the king of England.

Silent wars leave the most carnage. The wars that are never declared, but are carried out in dark alleys with masks and hidden knives. Wars where color power alters the natural rhythm of 17th century London. And when the king calls for peace, no one listens until he finally calls for death.

But what if death finds him first?

Keepers think the Igniters caused the plague. Igniters think the Keepers did. But all Thomas knows is that the Stone Plague infecting his eye is spreading. And if he doesn’t do something soon, he’ll be a lifeless statue. So when his Keeper father, Guy Fawkes, invites him to join the Gunpowder Plot—claiming it will put an end to the plague—Thomas is in.

The plan: use 36 barrels of gunpowder to blow up the Igniter King.

The problem: Doing so will destroy the family of the girl Thomas loves. But backing out of the plot will send his father and the other plotters to the gallows. To save one, Thomas will lose the other.

No matter Thomas’s choice, one thing is clear: once the decision is made and the color masks have been put on, there’s no turning back.

This one looks really interesting. I have no good reason other than not much time for not picking this one up. Hopefully soon.

heart of malice

The first time Moses Murphy’s granddaughter killed on his orders, she was six years old.

For twenty years, she was a prisoner of an organized crime syndicate, forced to use her magic to make Moses the most powerful and feared man on the East Coast. To escape his cruelty, she faked her own death and started a new life as Alice Worth. As a private investigator specializing in cases involving the supernatural, Alice walks a precarious line between atoning for the sins of her grandfather’s cabal and keeping her true identity hidden.

Hired to investigate the disappearance of a mysterious object of power, Alice enlists the help of Malcolm, a ghost running from a past as nightmarish as her own. It soon becomes clear the missing object was taken by someone with a dangerous secret and an unknown agenda. When her client is kidnapped, Alice must find her and the object of power before a vengeful killer destroys the city and slaughters thousands—starting with Alice.

This one is a little out of my comfort zone but it looks really interesting. I hope its as good as it looks.

a thousand salt kisses

Seventeen-year-old Crystal White is the new girl on Starfish Island. Dragged to the remote community by her environmental activist father, she is eager to find fun that doesn’t involve touching fish guts or listening to local folklore.

During a midnight swim with some new friends, Crystal is pulled out to sea by the waves. Convinced she’s going to drown, Crystal is rescued by Llyr, a handsome stranger. As she searches for him in the following weeks, she finds there may be more truth to the Starfish legends than she thought.

Over a sizzling roller-coaster summer, Llyr introduces Crystal to magic she’d only ever dreamed of. But as Crystal comes to love Starfish Island, it begins to drive her family apart. A nearby power plant is devastating local marine life, and her parents are stuck in the middle. As the magic and mundane parts of Crystal’s life converge, she finds herself risking everything to save Llyr, her family, and herself.

Looks like an interesting book and I really like reading books that are not well known, hidden gems.



Alex Rider, teen spy, has always been told he is the spitting image of the father he never knew. But when Alex learns that his father may have been an assassin for the most lethal and powerful terrorist organization in the world, Scorpia, his world shatters. Now Scorpia wants Alex on their side, and Alex no longer has the strength to fight them. That is, until he learns of Scorpia’s latest plot: an operation known only as “Invisible Sword” that will result in the death of thousands of people. Can Alex prevent the slaughter, or will Scorpia prove once and for all that the terror will not be stopped?

I like this series. I have been slowly reading it over the last few years, hopefully I will manage to carry on soon.

the last namsara

In the beginning, there was the Namsara: the child of sky and spirit, who carried love and laughter wherever he went. But where there is light, there must be darkness—and so there was also the Iskari. The child of blood and moonlight. The destroyer. The death-bringer.

These are the legends that Asha, daughter of the king of Firgaard, has grown up learning in hushed whispers, drawn to the forbidden figures of the past. But it isn’t until she becomes the fiercest, most feared dragon slayer in the land that she takes on the role of the next Iskari—a lonely destiny that leaves her feeling more like a weapon than a girl.

Asha conquers each dragon and brings its head to the king, but no kill can free her from the shackles that await at home: her betrothal to the cruel commandant, a man who holds the truth about her nature in his palm. When she’s offered the chance to gain her freedom in exchange for the life of the most powerful dragon in Firgaard, she finds that there may be more truth to the ancient stories than she ever could have expected. With the help of a secret friend—a slave boy from her betrothed’s household—Asha must shed the layers of her Iskari bondage and open her heart to love, light, and a truth that has been kept from her.

This one is one of many I have bought recently, I have no will power when it comes to books. Looks really good.

predator's gold

In this breathtaking sequel to his award-winning Mortal Engines, Reeve plunges readers into a ruthless and terrifyingly believable world where cities eat each other, betrayal is as common as ice, and loyalty offers the only chance for survival.

I enjoyed this first book in this series, looking forward to where the second one takes us.

frost blood

Ruby is a Fireblood. In a land ruled by Frost, her existance is a crime. She’s spent her whole life in hiding.

Until the day rostblood soldiers raid her village and kill her mother. The day she swears to avenge her people.

She must travel deep into the heart of the enemy, to the court of the Frost King, with only the mysterious warrior Arcus- a Frostblood rebel- by her side. But with alliances between fire and ice strictly forbidden, is Arcus friend or foe?

Ruby will only have one chance to destroy the maniacal ruler who took everything from her. But she has no idea just how hot her fire will burn…

This looks interesting, when I was looking it up on goodreads to get the picture, I found that it is not a well known book, I honestly thought it was. Looking forward to reading it.

a good girls guide to murder

The case is closed. Five years ago, schoolgirl Andie Bell was murdered by Sal Singh. The police know he did it. Everyone in town knows he did it.

But having grown up in the same small town that was consumed by the murder, Pippa Fitz-Amobi isn’t so sure. When she chooses the case as the topic for her final year project, she starts to uncover secrets that someone in town desperately wants to stay hidden. And if the real killer is still out there, how far will they go to keep Pip from the truth?

A debut YA crime thriller as addictive as Serial and as page-turning as One of Us Is Lying.

I bought this book on a whim, looks interesting. It compared to One of Us is Lying which I quite enjoyed. I just flicked through the book and saw that it has case notes etc, not sure why but that excites me, makes me want to read this more.


magical creatures academy

Rina Nelle Mont has never been a part of the paranormal world. Until now.
Well, maybe not. The Magical Creatures Academy only accepts supernaturals, and she’s been invited to the school, but she has none of the powers she’s supposed to. Blip. Nada. Not even a spark.

The school hasn’t made a mistake in a century, but she might be the first one. That’s just the kind of thing that would happen to her. Especially since no one has any idea what kind of creature she’ll be … assuming her powers ever decide to make an appearance.

Whether she’s ready or not, Rina is about to find out what she’s made of…

Night Shifter is the start of an exciting new magic-filled urban fantasy, starring a girl with lots of moxie, fine brawny shifters, BFFs with questionable morals, and pygmy trolls in need of an attitude adjustment.

I just bought this book, looks very interesting. I like fantasy books set in schools, it’s a great way to discover magic. Although I do tend to stay away from shapeshifter books, but this looked too good to pass up.

first flight

Join Dragon School. Learn to Fly.

Sixteen-year-old Amel arrived at Dragon School just like everyone else – with a dream to ride dragons and join the Dominion Dragon Riders.

But Amel has a crippled leg and Dragon School training is grueling. Before she can even become an initiate, she must complete her First Flight on a dragon.

Can Amel survive First Flight and become a Dragon School initiate or will her dreams dash on the rocks below?

Looks good, didn’t realise it was so short, only 102 pages, maybe should get around to this soon as it should be an easy quick read.


The world has no air. If you want to survive, you pay to breathe. But what if you can’t? And what if you think everything could be different? Three teens will leave everything they know behind in Sarah Crossan’s gripping and original dystopian teen novel of danger, longing, and glimmering hope.

Ever since the Switch, when the oxygen levels plummeted and most of humanity died, the survivors have been protected in glass domes full of manufactured air. Protected . . . or trapped? Or controlled? Alina’s a revolutionary who believes we can save the environment. Quinn’s a Premium who’s never had to worry about having enough air. His best friend, Bea, is an Auxiliary who’s never worried about anything but having enough air. When the three cross paths, they will change everything.

I’ve had this book for a while, not sure why I’ve not yet picked it. I have heard good things.

witch hollow and the wrong spell

That spell was wrong!

When three young witches, Electra, Cassandra, and Medea, decided to practice witchcraft, they had no idea what consequences the wrong spell would have. Specters that lurk in the town, a ghost house in the middle of the dark forest, and an old witch with an eerie wail are their minor problems.

Meanwhile, sixteen-year-old Eric O’Brian is sent to live in a small town named Hollow as a punishment for his constant truancy and bad behavior. Shortly he finds out that the beautiful town full of colorful ravines, green highlands, and dense forests is not an ordinary one: flowers that whisper, a strange Old Curiosity Shop that steals the time, and a hanged man coming to life on the Halloween night lead him to believe that Hollow is a mystical place inhabited by witches.

After meeting the mysterious red-haired girls and befriending them, Eric becomes a part of the world with time travels, medieval bards, flying brooms, and paintings with parallel reality.

Then a murder happens in Hollow…

This is another book I have had on my kindle for a few years but not yet gotten around to reading it. Looks quite unique.

black city

A dark and tender post-apocalyptic love story set in the aftermath of a bloody war.

In a city where humans and Darklings are now separated by a high wall and tensions between the two races still simmer after a terrible war, sixteen-year-old Ash Fisher, a half-blood Darkling, and Natalie Buchanan, a human and the daughter of the Emissary, meet and do the unthinkable—they fall in love. Bonded by a mysterious connection that causes Ash’s long-dormant heart to beat, Ash and Natalie first deny and then struggle to fight their forbidden feelings for each other, knowing if they’re caught, they’ll be executed—but their feelings are too strong.

When Ash and Natalie then find themselves at the center of a deadly conspiracy that threatens to pull the humans and Darklings back into war, they must make hard choices that could result in both their deaths.

Another book thats been sitting on my kindle and I have forgotten about, this is one of the reasons I am doing this post, to remind me of books I have still to read.

Have you read any of these books? What do you think?

ARC Review: Maiden (Lightwalker Series #1)

After a brutal massacre, Marta awakens deep in the forest overcome with grief for her lost sisters, but the world will not let her rest. The tragedy has changed her. She hears the call of nature, eventually steering her toward a small cottage in the wilderness. There she learns of nature’s magic and what it means to be a Lightwalker. The path is there for her to follow. If she’s strong enough to embrace it…


I recieved a free copy of this book via netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

For the first few chapters I had to push myself to keep reading. I found the religion a little much to begin with, not knowing where it was going it felt a little heavy handed before getting to know the characters well. But I did push on, and once I got to know the characters and started to care for them it made more sense and I found the religious parts quite interesting even if in my opinion they dragged on a little. I think there could have been a little more to some chapters they felt like very long lessons and not just for the characters.

There was a little too much repition for me, some lessons were shown both to Marta and Jayme, with no alteration so the reader was reading the exact same thing they had read a few pages ago.

Overall I did find this book interesting and really did enjoy it. I am not sure I will be reading the second one though, there was no hook at the end to get me wanting to delve into the next one. BUt I will see when it comes out.

Harry Potter Covers from around the world : Denmark

demark 1

I love theses covers, they are simple and show just a glimpse into world. So this one has a Hedwig and bit of the castle plus lightning. Also lots of little lightning bolts over the cover. Really nice.

denmark 2

This one shows the basalisk and the sword of Gryffindor, with a little bit of a staircase, who know where it leads. Once again there is the little lightning bolts covering the cover which is a lovely touch.

denmark 3

This is probably my least favourite cover of the set, the hippogriff looks strange. But I like how the moon is shown for Professor Lupin and a little bit of the castle.

denmark 4

I do like the use of of the silouhettes, this time of a mermaid. Then showing the Durmstrang ship and the fire from yhe goblet of fire.

denmark 5

Love the picture of the pheonix and that it’s showing maybe the pensieve, along with the prophecy.

demark 6

Maybe I am having a silly moment but I cannot currently remember Unicorns being in the sixth book. And the picture in the back doesnt show a picture that istantly reminds me of Hogwarts.

denmark 7

Along with the first one, this is probably my favourite. Showing the castle and the dragon from Gringotts.

Overall these covers are beautiful. I would love to own them.

What do you think of them?

Review: Olypian Heritage (Olypian Challenger #2)

olympian heritage

Hope used to believe in science and facts; until she landed on Mount Olympus and discovered that magic and myths were very much real.

After being crowned the Gods’ heroine, she must now become their emissary. For centuries, the Gods have been isolated from the human world, which threatens their immortality.

Hope becomes their best chance at eternal survival and she’s sent off on a quest to find the Fountain of Youth.

If she fails, she loses everything…but winning may very well mean the same.


I really loved the first book, I really enjoy books that have tests or challenges. But i do find the next books in the series where they do not follow the same pattern some time have trouble keeping my interest.

Luckily this book had enough going for it that I managed to finish it.I did take me a while, I kept having to leave it and came back. It didn’t really feel like much happened. The last book had a lot of action, mystery and was jam packed of things to keep the reader interested. This one was a lot flatter. It really felt mostly like discussions and Hope just doing lots of thinking about things. There was a lot to like about the book but it was quite slow.

One of the resons I loved the first book was the mythology, there was lots of gods and goddesses and other creatures. But with this one, I felt the new ones that were introduced were a little confusing. I found myself getting lost in all the names.

I am looking forward to reading the third book in the series and hopefully it will have a little more oomph than the second one.

Fancy reading the first one? Check it out here. Olympian Challenger.

olympian challenger

ARC Review: Olympian Challenger

olympian challenger

A hero’s tournament. A defiant contender. Does one girl have the courage to take on Mount Olympus?

Hope’s world doesn’t have room for heroes. She barely has time for schoolwork, swim team, and taking care of her ailing mother. But when she’s invited to a mysterious tournament, the all-powerful hosts won’t take no for an answer.

Transported to Mount Olympus, Hope comes face to face with her new trainers—the pantheon of Greek gods. While other contenders train hard to gain a fighting edge, Hope searches for a way out. Instead, she finds a gorgeous shadow god who may just convince her to stay…

As each round unfolds, the ultimate prize draws closer—the granting of her heart’s deepest desire. If she survives the final challenge, her mother’s cure would be within reach…but only if Hope can ignore the tournament’s dark purpose.

Olympian Challenger is the first book in a bold YA urban fantasy trilogy. If you like Greek mythology, forbidden romance, and feats of courage, then you’ll love Astrid Arditi’s heroic coming-of-age tale.


First of all I love the cover, it’s beautiful. The book is typical YA fantasy that concerns trials, but it does it so well. I love all the characters especially Hope. She was clever and feisty, she loves her mother very much, which she brought up a little too much for me. The story flowed well and the character development was good.

But let’s get into the exiting bits, the story was very exciting, a little slow at times, which is odd since there was so much action going on. The trials were interesting, I was glad only a few of them were mentioned in detail though. I liked how Hope changed her views but I would have liked a little more oomph and dedication from her.

Gabriel was very likeable, he had a few dimensions to him, he felt very familair, like an old friend. I wasn’t so keen on Amy, she was a little too feisty for my liking, she never seemed be real, came off as a little fake.

I have been in a bit of a reading slump and not really reading much over the last year, this book brought me out of it big time, I raced through it. I only put it down when  I had to, and even when I wasn’t reading my head was stuck in Mount Olympus.  The gods were interesting characters, I liked how they changed with the story. I am very much looking forward to reading the next one.

Harry Potter Covers: UK 20th Anniversary Addition

hp bw 1

I love that it includes more than you think when you look properly. As McGonagal is one of my favourite characters I am glad she is featured.

hp bw 2

Dobby looks so scared, and Malfoy looks evil. I love it.

hp bw 3

I do like how it doesn’t really show Harry, it shows Hermione and Sirius and the demontors which feature heavily in the book.

hp bw 4

Love the fact that it shows the other Twiwizard champions but Krum looks a little bit like a vampire.

hp bw 5

I love the presentation of Umbridge, she look evil. I don’t really like that Harry’s face takes up half the cover, kind of leaves room for nothing else.

hp bw 6

I do think that Dumbledore takes up too much of the cover, but the detail is amazing. Having Snape in the cover is a great choice in my opinion.

hp bw 7

There’s a lot going on, but in a great way. I like how Dumbledore is looking down, or is that Aberforth? The duel is coll but both Harry and Voldemort look very strange.

What do you think of these covers? Would you buy them?

Harry Potter Covers: Natalia Andrewson

So it’s been a few years since I have posted any of these covers, there are only so many, but I found this today and thought they were far too pretty not to share.

hp1 na

These have a lot going on, but each small picture has something significant to the book. I love it.

hp2 na

I love the spiders crawling all over the book and the inclusion of the howler. I think a child who has not read the books, will look at these in depth and try to work out what they are about to discover when they read the books.

hp 3 na

I am liking the footprints all over the cover. The quotes from each book are really making me want to read them all again. I really like how if you know the bokos there are little hints about the plot but if you don’t know them, it gives nothing away.

hp4 na

I love that a letter from Sirius is included in the cover. A very long dragon at the top is pretty cool.

hp5 na

I like how the book is very Umbridge based, with a little of the other characters like the weasley twins and the extendable ears. This is probably my favourite of this set of covers.

hp6 na

Once again there is a lot going one, it’s over riding theme is the cave where the horcrux is held, but I love that she has included some of the lighter elements of the book too.

hp 7 na

The theme of hallows vs horcruxes is strong, which I love. It makes me very happy that the deluminator and tales of beedle of the bard are included.

What do you think of these covers? Would you buy this set if they were available?

ARC Review: Trial of magic

trials of magic


I really like this book, it does have aspects of most of YA fantasy (to be fair I keep reading them because I love this) but it does have a few unique qualities. The different halls were different than anything else I have ever read, a nice unique twist on magic. I was not much of a fan of Pi, I preferred the other sister. Pi just seemed like a very reckless person and she got out of most of her scrapes because of her sister, Aurie. Aurie was my preferred main charater, she used her wits to get out the unlucky scrapes she got herself into. I didnt really feel connected to any of the side characters but I am looking forward to reading more in the next book.

ARC Review: The Expedition

the expediditon


Drayden and his friends thought nothing could be harder than the Initiation. Little did they know it had only been a warmup for the challenge that lay ahead.

With New America’s situation dire, Drayden and the pledges venture out into the unexplored world outside the walls, escorted by a team of elite Guardians. The group seeks to contact another civilization in what remains of Boston, but Drayden has secret goals of his own.

Dangers abound in the real world, including Aeru, the deadly superbug that wiped out humanity. While they battle the elements of a desolate landscape, a power struggle emerges within their ranks. The Guardians seem to be carrying out a covert mission themselves, and the quest turns everything they thought they knew about New America upside down.



I recieved a free copy of this book via netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Okay so there was a little issue when I requested this book. Neither Netgalley or goodreads mentioned this was in a series, I double checked because the description looked a little unusual for a stand alone. I emailed this observation to the author and he was very nice and mentioned that he knew about the problem and was doing his best to get it fixed, which it now has been :).

On to the review, since I did not read the first one I am avoiding certain areas since it would be unfair. So the characters were good and I felt like the relationships were strong. I wasn’t the biggest fan of Drayden though, he was rash and put his feelings above the fate of his city. He also seemed to have an attitude, like he should be in charge, he’s menat to be 16 but was acting more like a cross between an adult and a spoilt brat.

The writing was very good, I liked the style very much, there were not any mistakes, it was well edited. The story was easy to follow and interesting, kept me guessing as to what was going to come next. I do feel it was a little repetative though. If you have read the first one in the series then I highly recommend this one.
