Publisher's Summary

I live by one simple rule: no magic. Not too hard in the human world, plus it keeps me hidden from my evil sorcerer father. Safe.  

When I’m forced into using magic to save an innocent family, the jig is up. Or so I believe. Instead, I’m whisked off to an academy of magic in a place I never knew existed. The problem is - my power is completely raw, which means I don’t know my butt from a broomstick. At first, it's all wands, witches, and a new wardrobe...until I get caught in a restricted area with a dead body. Now, it's going to take more than magic to clear my name. 

Thanks to new friends and a magically delicious vampire called Gray, I don't have to fly solo anymore. I'm out of my depth and out of options. Can I catch a killer before it's too late, or am I doomed to live a life on the run?   

Outcast: Spellslingers Academy of Magic, the first audiobook of the Warden of the West series, is a fantasy mystery with humor, action, a powerful heroine, and a fang-tastic hero.

Kinda boring

Predictable and kinda boring. Not interested in finding what happens next. Read Harley Merlin instead

Warden of the West

Brinn orphaned by her Mom, is hiding from her evil sorcerer father amongst humans. She has magic but is terrified to use it because it will alert everyone, including her father as to her whereabouts.

On her way home from a night shift Brinn is forced to make a split second decision to use her magic to save an innocent family. She's instantly spotted but instead of being taken into custody she's whisked off to an academy of magic in a different realm. Here they're going to teach Brinn how to use her power responsibly. Trust comes hard for the once street kid - and it gets tougher when she's found in a restricted area with a dead body.

Brinn meets and befriends Gray, an ex-warden and vampire. Together they're going to try and figure out who at Spellslingers Academy has it out for the love child of one of the most hated sorcerers in their history.

Not an action, insta-love kinda book

This is a slow burn story where the characters don't fall in love/lust right away. It also is not a fast paced action story. More like an early YA magical detective with potential to grow. I was intrigued by the blurb on Amazon but did not have high expectations.

After listening, I am interested in the characters possibilities and will definitely listen/read the next book in the series to find out what happens.

Definitely YA

It’s meh. No descriptions of the magic itself or anything. Very contrived plot. It’s a good casual listen but it could have been better. Too quick in some parts and too slow on the wrong parts. Not very much build up of any of the characters and I barely remember who they are before they all decide to be best of friends with very little scenes. It’s just like a kid playing being an adult but they don’t know the details and then everything ends up okay in the end. Not bad world building and the world itself is cool but everything could have been better. After the first initial set up the intelligence of the main character seems to go from being super independent mature on the run but kind girl to blissfully ignorant and we follow her point of view so… we are ignorant of details too. Idk how a person who can take care of themselves like that can be everything else in the novel. It’s not that I hated it but unless I have nothing better to listen to I probably won’t continue the series.
