Description

I thought I was ordinary Rory Franco: college student, artist, and over-protected daughter. Then, mages barge into my family’s home, murder my parents, and whisk me off to a university known as Villain Academy.
 

It turns out I’m Persephone Bloodstone, the long lost heir to one of the five royal families of dark magic. I’m destined to learn how to manipulate the world with fear - and to stand beside the four other scions: the scorching-hot, arrogant young men who rule this school.
 

The four of them crush anyone who doesn’t kowtow. No way in hell will I bow to any villain, no matter how brutally alluring. They can turn on the charm or tear me down, but they can’t break me.
 

They’ve never met anyone like me before. I don’t care about ruling. I just want to avenge the people I loved.
 

It doesn’t matter what kind of magic runs through my veins. I’m taking Villain Academy down.
 

Cruel Magic is the first in a university-age paranormal academy series. Expect magical villainy, a tough heroine who bends to no one’s will, a dollop of steam, and a slow-burn reverse harem romance where there'll be no choosing required.

I wanted to like this....

I was really hoping for more redeeming qualities in the male characters, but sadly this is a book about 4 boys slowing breaking a girl and it can be hard to listen to at times.

I'm not sure if...

I like it. There are joy-mancers and fear-mancers and well the fear-mancers get their power from fear, the parents are evil and their children are on the best way. I don't like the way they are! And they were taught to do so...

The narration was great! But when the voice from the female narrator gets louder, their is a distortion. It doesn't get louder in the speakers so that's a plus. But there's a slight crackling sound, like she is to near to the microphone.

This is like a reverse Harry Potter story.

This is such a wonderful read/listen! First off this is my first book by this author. I am impressed. The world building in this fantasy story is great! I loved the whole idea of the magic being pulled from fear and joy. The characters were relatable and I enjoyed watching them change/grow. Being a long lost mage and thrust into this world would throw anyone off their axis. Rory does a good job trying to keep her values and not go to the “dark side”. She makes a few friends but mostly plays catch up trying to learn magic. She does make a couple enemies and “mean girls”. Then the pranking starts. Smelly rooms, hot seats in class..etc. I did enjoy reading the boys sides when their chapters came up. It shows a little look into their lives.

I did listen to this on audio. Meg Sylvan did most of the reading as Rory. She did a wonderful job being all the other characters as well. Stephen Dexter did the boys voices when we hear from them. He did a good job as well portraying each of their voices differently. This was my first listening to both of them. Although Meg Sylvan’a voice did sound familiar
This is like a reverse Harry Potter. Mages using fear instead of power within. Very enjoyable!

Intense

I really liked this audiobook and didn't want any interruptions. I love the trope enemies to lovers and I can see it's possible (so far it's a slow burn with some sexual tension and a hot steamy scene) but can tell it's going to take some time. Book 1 really put the heroine through the ringer. She faced a lot of things that would break another but her strength, determination and moral character really shined through. Everything is quite intriguing about this world and the academy. I can't wait to find out more! The duet narration really helps enhance the story. And can I just say how sexy Stephen Dexter's voice is?! Yum, I am totally impatient to start book 2!!

Villain RH

This was an interesting take on magic. There are joy mancer and fear mancer one gets their magic from joy and the other from fear. The main characters finds out she is a fear mancer and not just any but one of the ruling families. She has no idea what she is doing or how to but she refuses to back down or become what they want her to be. Some of the things the guys did made me want to scream or punch something for her because some of the stuff they did was awful but I am curious to see how it might change as the books goes on and what has made them be like this. Why they feel this is a good idea? I hope to see her continue to stay true to her goals and learn more about the joy mancers is it so black and white? One good and one bad? Or is there more to it and how will she manage to change things? She has power so what will she do next with that power? I also loved her mouse familiar and how she became friends with those she wanted to and damn what other people think about it or her. I hope this villain gets her own and manages to shake up this world for the best. I can’t wait to see what the author will do with them next.

Obsessed!!!!

This book is FANTASTIC! It starts you off right in the action. You don't know who to trust or who to believe. I don't want to spoil anything, but if you are a fan of Academy romance--LOOK NO FURTHER. This is the series for you! I received a copy of this book at n/c in exchange for an honest review. Honestly, I freaking loved it.
