Publisher's Summary

Your life begins or ends at the academy.

For Remi St. James, it started with the blackouts. Then the vivid nightmares. That’s nothing compared to waking up naked, alone in a forest with no recollection of how she got there.

Scary as hell, but what she discovers is far worse.

Remi was changing into something more - something supernatural.

After coming to terms with what she is, Remi starts school at the Gladwell Academy of Shifters, an exclusive and secretive college designed to awaken those with extraordinary abilities.

Remi meets Laith Brighton, an impossibly hot mountain lion shifter who's also an irresistible jerk. Then, there's the cliques of werewolves and bears. Plenty of mean girls with mind powers. Everything a regular college has - just a bit weirder. But what she discovers is far darker than anyone could imagine.

Can she maintain her sanity in a place that is incredibly insane?

Fans of the Fallen Academy and Supernatural Academy series will love this snarky paranormal fantasy filled with shifters and romance.

Academy of Shifters Books 1-4

I enjoyed listening to these 4 books. Interesting take in shifters which include bears, wolves and cats. It has quite a few ups and downs to keep you in anticipation of what will happen next. Can’t wait to see what awaits Remy moving forward.

Great read

I really enjoy at the beginning but as I’m getting to book 3 and 4, I’m starting to dislike the main characters. I’m glad that her friend give her a piece of mind. She’s so contradicting. Hated bully yet she bullies people. Things don’t go her way she’s piss. She wants to find out answers but when she was going to get the answer, she doesn’t want to hear it. I thought as she gets older, she would be more confident but I don’t see it. All I see is self loathing and doubts and always assume. She wants ppl to be honest with her yet she’s lying to everyone. So like I said this is a great read but for some reason I feel like I lost interest in the heroine. I’m not sure if I want to continue reading this series. Brittany Goodwin did an incredible job at narrating

Listen to this Series ASAP!!

I really enjoyed this book! From the first chapter I was sucked into an extraordinary world. The author does an excellent job creating and telling this story. I cannot wait to see what happens next! I already have the next book downloaded.

Remi a girl who believes in nothing supernatural finds herself thrust into a world of "shifters". Remi is a no nonsense girl who doesn't want to believe in this new world. Not only goes Remi navigate a new world; she falls in love, makes friends, gets a family, and finds out things that completely change her life AGAIN!

Loved it, and can’t wait for more!

I loved every bit of this book compilation. I’m so happy I chose to get the books 1-4 together because I COULDN'T STOP! So many unexpected twists, and cliff hangers! I am now going to be not so patiently waiting for the next book in this series. In the mean time, I plan on listening to other books by Marisa Claire to hold me over. If you’re into suspenseful & supernatural books that aren’t too heavy to listen to, then I highly recommend.

Story was good, MC not so much....

The story and the world building of this story were great. I was truly interested in what was going on in this shifter world. But the main character had me so irritated throughout the majority of EVERY book. She was super whinney, complained way too much, and her behavior makes it unrealistic as to how she had some many people flock to her and want to be her friend. She was rude to everyone (friends and enemies a like) and needless to say she was a "B" (no pun intended with all the dog jokes in the book). Whenever someone tries to give her good information she just jumps on her high horse and tries to explain why she is right and everyone else is wrong. And how she treated "Lath" the first few books..... I don't see how anyone saw that as a beautiful budding relationship.

But enough of that rant, if you can get over the main character or if you like that type of heroine, this book isn't bad. It truly is very interesting. And the narrator was great. She made listening to the character bearable. The twists and surprises throughout out the 4 books were great! Even though i do not like the main character I still look forward to future installments.

4 Books in 1 Written for Young Teens

I have never read/listened to any Academy Books or Series and thought I would try one. This is most definitely written for Teenagers. I am a 65 yr old Woman and though I listened to this 1-4 it is not really written for older adults. Some of the things and additudes in this book is more of recent additudes then us older folks grew up with. Still it was interesting to read/listen to. Narrator does a good job with the characters and storyline.

Great narration

I'm not sure I would've picked this up. It was recommended to me and I am very pleased I did. I have only read a few books that had people that can shift to wolves. David Eddings, TJ Klune, and Stephenie Meyer are some of the authors who have tapped into it and I enjoyed their versions of it. I would like to add Marisa Claire to the list.

I'm not great with reviews but I like what I Like so:

Brittany Goodwin was the perfect narrator for this series. I will probably follow her to some other works.

There were moments where the story was frustrating, but I chalked it up to great storytelling. The characters didn't do things how I would've. But the characters are young adults, with emotions and their own set of life experiences. So it makes sense that didn't go the way I wanted them to. But that leads to fun moments when you're reading. If you know the stereotype of people talking in a movie "screaming don't go in there." That is how I felt.

Remi do this, or for the love of god use your nose girl (haha)

Bottom line, I look forward to the next book.
I look forward to discovering the other society and school in this universe.

Great story

This story and universe was so great I found myself trapped completely. All the suspense, the secrets that get unravelled one by one.. You think you get the characters quickly, but you really don't. I really liked both the story, the characters and the narrator did a great job. Highly recommended!

Wow, that was a rollercoaster, I need book 5!

I received a free copy of this audiobook in return for an honest review.

Overall I really enjoyed and would recommend this. A sweet, genuine romance, an absorbing plot that slowly unfurled, with the odd surprise and plenty to keep you guessing and pondering. I'm glad I could listen to the 4 books back to back, as individually they were quite short.

I was a surprised by how complex things have got by the end of book 4, we're at quite a strange cliffhanger point. Things have got much darker, and I'm intrigued to see how things get straightened out.

The narrator was mostly great. A couple of voices were a bit too similar, and the rapid shouted "chapter x" was jarring at times.

Remy St. James is the One

The first book introduces us to Remy St James, a young woman that doesn't know she is a shifter and who has a twin brother that has disappeared. Growing up in foster care, she doesn't trust easily. She is coerced into going to the shifter academy and that is where the adventure begins. This audiobook had so many twists and turns your heart will beat out of your chest and you will have no choice but to keep listening. The characters are bigger than life, the angst and betrayal beyond belief and the love just amazing. I received the audiobook in exchange for a honest review and I just loved the story. I will be purchasing the next book because of the Cliff hanger. The narrator was amazing and definitely added to the life of the story. I could see and feel everything the heroine saw and felt. This audiobook left me satisfied. Now onto the next book

Good story

I enjoyed this story. It had a good plot and climax to it but some of the characters were not to my liking (I think this is geared more towards younger age), so that's just a personal preference. Good story though. Id recommend it.
