lion shifter

Rina Nelle Mont is finally a part of the paranormal world. But it isn’t rainbows and roses like she’d imagined.
The Magical Creatures Academy only accepts those supernaturals with the greatest potential. She’s now certain she has what it takes … and then some. She has more power than she has bargained for.

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

In Rina’s opinion, Prince Leander Verion is the finest of all the fae, but he’s also entirely off limits. She lacks the requisite pointy ears to make her an acceptable match.

But Rina is far from acceptable, she’s exceptional. If only she can learn to master her wild powers … before they master her.

Whether she likes it or not, Rina is about to find out why she has rightfully earned her place at the academy.

Lion Shifter is the second book in 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 raced through this book almost as much as the first. Still loving the character’s although rina seems a little niave. I do like her two friends although they are very different. And her brother he seems like the dream guy, and the dream big brother.

The story line moved well. I liked the action and the descriptions of shifting are really well done. Her relationships with the prince is interesting, seems like he is teasing her though, stringing her along for some reason. Only time will tell though.

The ending, was not to my liking, mainly because I like everything ends well for the good guys ending, not realistic at all, so I really cannot fault authors who let put in some challenges for their characters and show readers that it is possible to overcome obstacles.

Overall I really enjoyed this book.

Why haven’t I read book 3 yet? It’s not out. 😦

4 out of 5 stars
