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.
