Publisher's Summary

Harry Potter meets the Hunger Games!

Ever since magic stormed the world, the price for human survival is surrendering your firstborn to the monsters. But this year it's Nova's turn, and the monsters better watch their backs.

I am the firstborn in my family. The first of three. And today I will pay the price for my siblings' lives by surrendering control of my own. I will step through the runegate, and I will never see my family again.

What the others do with the firstborn is shrouded in mystery. All anyone knows is they are never heard from again.

I will step through the runegate willingly.

But I can keep secrets, too. And I'll do whatever it takes to bring the others to their knees....

Fans of Harry Potter, Shadowspell Academy, Harley Merlin, and the Hunger Games series, welcome to a magical new world packed with adventure, intrigue, romance, and characters you'll fall in love with.

Contains all three books in the Firstborn Academy series: Shadow Trials (book one), Shadow Witch (book two), and Shadow Reaper (book three).

Loved this trilogy!

I couldn't wait to hear the end of this story. As a fan of Harry Potter and The Hunter Games, I was super excited to find this series. I think I liked it more than the other two! I laughed, I cried. The narrator was great! I wanted to know how it ended but I'm sad that it ended! Great story!

Good Listen

overall I thought this was a good book and worth the credit. There were times when I wished the author went into more detail and maybe expanded upon a certain event. That being said I was still very happy with it.

YA at it's best!

So many YA books claim to be "Harry Potter meets the Hunger Games" in their description and this books is no exception to this. The exception is that it truly is "Harry Potter meets the Hunger Games" in many ways. This book is a perfect mixture of being taken away by the powers that be for an unknown purpose and MAGIC! Is this book free of all the YA tropes, no, do those tropes work in a new and unique way, yes. Also, unlike a lot of the recent YA hits that have very disappointing ends, this one breaks from those hits with an end that works and will leave you satisfied. Also, all 3 books for a single credit, what do you have to loose?

Excellent

This is a wonderful and well written story. It could easily have been lengthened into an impressive series, but it wasn't cut so short as to be void of necessary elements.

not bad but not great

A good story but could’ve been compacted into two books as there were too many convoluted thoughts being told throughout the three books making it slightly hard work to listen to

The spittle!!

How, did this, spittle strewn narration, ever get the green light? So very cringeworthy throughout.

Really enjoyable

Great story written really well. Magic, Aliens, post apocalyptic, humour, and just enough terror to be enjoyable!
