Beatrice Harrow was raised in seclusion, separated from the Read Kingdom and protected from the mysterious mechanisms of the other four races, but they are not as blind to her as she is to them. Even before she steps foot inside the Academy, they know her name and they know the truth about her birth. She is one of the Tainted: a mixed-breed creature with the blood of a monster, clinging to legitimacy by the genes of her human father. She is more beautiful, more powerful, and more despised than any other being in the Read Kingdom.

Overall the book is amazing. The story was alive for me and I felt connected to the characters, however, there is one portion of this book that I think needs to be addressed:

The. Rape. Scene.

It’s intense, and while it’s not the most detailed one I’ve ever read, so far it’s the most painful one that I’ve personally encountered and it brought me back to some really dark places of my mind.

100% there should be a clip of audio warning for that particular chapter:
End of chapter 12(14), events are implied but not gone into detail. Chapter 15(17)is the extreme danger zone!‼️

My chapters are offset by 2 which is why the 14 and 17 are there. Ch. 12 and 15 are listed as ch. 14 and 17.

Maya has never had much to complain about. Sure, her parents are absent a lot, having important jobs in the government, but at the end of the day, she has all the material possessions a girl could want. Not to mention a great best friend and secure spot in the popular group at her school. Yet she can never shake the feeling of displacement. Constantly searching for something that’s missing from her life.

I get why the author may have wanted to change the reader but honestly I much perfected the reader of the first 2 books. This new reader just didn’t have as diverse of voices which allowed a lot of the characters to all sound the same, especially the men. She did a good job, you could understand her but I’d really like the first reader to come back; she really brought the characters to life with their own voiced personalities. The story was just as amazing as all of the books so far. I love this series and I’ll be reading it again and again.

When Piper Jones fled New York for a secluded mountainside in Alaska, she thought she was safe from the back-stabbing, supernatural drama of the city. Now she's back, with the sexy werewolf Alpha Knox, his pack, and her grizzly bear sidekick for backup. But Piper's plan to get closure is derailed when her vampire mate, Merc, is abducted, forcing her to form a shaky alliance with a warlock lord.

I really love this author. The way she writes is so wholesome, but not overbearing. There’s detail, but not so much that you can’t keep up with the story.

Willa Knight: Dead? Alive? Damned to a state of eternal bad luck? Willa and the Abcurse brothers are back, and more determined than ever to stick by each other. Unfortunately, Staviti has other plans, plans that threaten to change the natural order of the worlds—though nobody really understands why. His agenda may very well affect all beings on Minatsol, even those that thought themselves safe in Topia. Even Willa-invincible-Knight. Unsure with her new place in the worlds, Willa must follow the Abcurses to their new post: Champions Peak, a secluded mountain far from civilization, where the most powerful sols have been summoned to hone their abilities through direct contact with the gods. There is a chance that she might survive her time on the mountain, but it seems like staying alive amidst the powerful occupants of the Peak is the least of her concerns. Her real problem is staying on the mountain at all.

Willa has never been a particularly useful dweller: she isn’t very good at chores, she isn’t very good at worshiping, she isn’t very good at not having opinions, and she isn’t very good with rules - but none of that matters anymore. The rules are changing. The dwellers are trying to make their own way in the world, and Willa can’t seem to help getting tangled up in their plans. Luckily, she has the Abcurse brothers to help her out - until she doesn’t, and suddenly she’s alone again in a world on the brink of chaos.

Willa Knight: Dweller? Bad-ass? Notorious pet to five magical beings? In Blesswood, there are rules, and someone is trying to teach her how to follow them. The only problem is Willa. Which shouldn’t be anything new, since she has been a problem since birth — something her pseudo-sister Emmy would agree on. So it definitely shouldn’t be new, but it is. Because things are starting to happen that have never happened before. Things are starting to get chaotic.

In Minatsol, being a dweller means that you are literally no better than dirt. In fact, dirt might actually be more useful than Willa. Her life will be one of servitude to the sols, the magic-blessed beings who could one day be chosen to become gods. At least her outer village is far removed from the cities of the sols, and she won't ever be forced to present herself to them... Until one small mistake changes everything, and Willa is awarded a position to serve at Blesswood, the top sol academy in the world - a position that she definitely did not earn.
