Description

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....

A good concept, but lackluster launch

First let me say, the overall idea and world are really good, and I enjoyed what little there was in this book. The fact I wanted more should tell you how compelling the story is. However, the book suffers from two major flaws.

First, The book is incredibly short given how detailed the author is. Once the main character gets to "the academy" the story only has 3hrs left in it. The main drama takes place in the first week or so of being there then we jump to the end of the "semester" and the book ends.

It felt like more of a short story than a full length book. why not do some more world building and character development and give us a story over the entire semester. I honestly felt a little cheated...

Second, the entire story is launched when the main character turns 18 at 3:03am except that none of the surrounding story support her being 18. It feels like she was suppose to be 15 or maybe 16. For example, she talks about going back to school at her normal high school with her friends, Shouldn't she be talking about graduating?

At every turn I felt like an editor decided she should be older and and change the lines referring to her age. The people accepted to this magical creature academy are supposed to be there for 9 semesters, which would sound a lot more like college if _any_ of them actually behaved liked they were 18 and not 15. I just couldn't shake the feeling that the original concept didn't have this set around an 18yr old.

Overall, it is a fun book, Given how short the book is, if the author is releasing these quickly, then it will be a fun series, if we are only getting a long short story every 6mths or a year this one will quickly fall off my radar.

Wow

I felt like I was a part of every scene. This is my first book by Lucia Ashta and I loved how when she writes it feels like you are experiencing everything as well. There was some slow burn, mystery, and lots of action. The world built around the characters is really neat and interesting. All the characters have great personalities and are easy to like. The narrator is also new to me and I thought she did a great job bringing the story to life before me. I enjoyed listening to her and she did a good job on distinctive voices. I can hardly wait to listen to what happens next! Lucia Ashta has a new fan.

definitely not cream rising to the top

In the flood of British style academy books, there are few gems; this tale set in the mountains of Kansas is not one. At least this one posits an 18 year old narrator, presumably more aware and self-expressive, but she seems so much less and so much more. On one hand she acts like someone entering middle school. On the other hand, the protagonist's first day shows no signs of sensory over-load that would be normal in a first day in a new world; she acts as if she has had weeks to comprehend the situation. Whereas most schools have something like orientation week, this story depends completely on institutional incompetence. Sympathy-tokens like a dead mother and plot-gags like transforming into a skunk aren't enough to keep me looking for signs of subtly in the storyline or character development. Nor will fancy language like "Azure cotton candy...plop as slop" save the story for me.

I really enjoyed this book and the magical world it delves in to. The main character is relatable and her relationship with her family is interesting. Ready to read book 2!
