Publisher's Summary

When being different leads to the best years of your life.

There are three key components required to get into the most prestigious, top spy academy in the world:

  • Skills
  • Strength
  • Survival

My name is Silver Spell Solange. No, I didn't plan for my initials to be the same rank needed to enter the spy academy. But I would do anything to get into the one of a kind school. I have the magical capability of an Elemental Witch, the strength to kick anyone's ass, and quick problem-solving skills to get my teammates out of any jam. There’s only one small problem - the other "S" I’m missing.

I'm not a part of the supernatural race.

After realizing that my only shot at my dreams is at the brink of extinction, I'm unexpectedly teamed up with a werewolf, a dragon, a fallen angel, and a hellhound. The four of them carry the assets and abilities I need to gain my spot into the Supernatural Spy Academy (SSS).

With the clock ticking and not much leg room for an SS score, I accept their bet, knowing I’ll easily handle whatever they request from me.

I didn't think their bet would lead me to date all four them.

It's time for me to buckle up. This four-year roller coaster is about to begin, and its a bumpy one-way ticket to becoming the next "supernatural" spy.

Oh no wasted money

So very poorly written and immature. I could not finish it. I would never recommend even if it was the last book on an apocalyptic earth. The sad thing is I did pay for it and usually if I spend $$$ I'll suffer through a bad book. But this is so bad I couldn't even stomach that. it didn't help that the voice of the ready was a teenage style voice. Imagine a 14 year old talking about R-rated themselves. I get that this is a reverse harem but ugh!!!!!

Book loses itself in second half

If you dont want to think to hard about what your listening to, the first half of this book falls in line with being blind entertainment in this genre. As the book goes on, the female lead doesn't really go anywherebbeyond being 2 dimensional. The book also is supposed to span a year but the second semester at this school is the last 20th of the book. There are a lot of time skips and it's more about saying here is a thing that happened in these people's lives rather than a portion that is applicable to the plot or character development. A traumatic event is brought up in the lives of a few of the main characters but rather than exploring the personal growth of these characters, it's talked about for a bit, there is a nod to being PC about it and how good some character is for noticing that they should be PC and then it's not really brought up again, even though these traumatic events should be coloring the view of these characters.

In the end, it feels like the author has a bunch of ideas and began flushing the ones at the beginning out but lost their way and rather than edit down to the important bits and fully exploring them, they threw everything at the book, even if it meant only looking into that one idea for half a paragraph.

SSS

I could not finish this book, for various reasons. First the narrator got on my nerves, she sounded extremely juvenile at times, and other times it was like nails on chalkboard.
The story fell flat, and again very juvenile. I couldn't recommend it to kids, because the language is a bit coarse at times. I might like the book in a paperback, without the narrator getting on my nerves.

Exciting RH

This was a pretty cute RH. I loved the spy academy setting. Every one who knows me knows I love uni-kitties (or caticorns) so I was pretty pleased to find one in a book.

There's a unique assortment of shifters; dragon, werewolf, hellhound, and fallen angel. I loved watching Silver and her men work together as they navigate the school and their newfound relationship.

There's some excitement, action, and romance. It's definitely a fun book and i'm looking forward to the next one.

I've listened to Lacy Laurel before and loved her, this is no exception. She brings the stories to life.

Loved this one! 🔥🔥🔥🔥

S.S.S.

What can you say about a perfectly crafted world where you are immediately immersed in not only the characters but The Whole concept that is coming to life before our very eyes.

I have always enjoyed Yumo’s world, but she really took this new series to the next level! First we meet Silver, a powerful witch who has always dreamed of becoming a Spy. To do this she needs to be accepted into the very exclusive and supernatural academy of shifters. Witches aren’t seen as paranormal in this new world. There value is lessened by this belief. But Silver doesn’t let the no witches rule slow her down, she just has to find a work around...and to do that she gains the help of 4 gorgeous and supportive men.

Follow along in Silver’s journey as she becomes the woman she always knew she could be....with a little help from her harem!!

Great storyline

I love the story. The heroine doesn’t give up on what she wants and fights for it. She’s relatable while still being a fantasy if that makes sense. The narrator is wonderful and I can’t wait for more!!

action packed read

I received this book for free for a honest review. This book had it all. love, hate, betrayal. I loved the idea of the shifters and the different kinds that are going to SSS. The narrator did an excellent job of bringing the characters to life. easy to follow, well put together and fast paced. Highly reccomend.

omg please I want more

not only is this the kind of reverse harem I love to read/listen to, but the characters dont deny their affection for each other and dont fight the pull. can't wait for amazon/audible to get more of these books in. a must read for anyone that likes or loves romance and action and comedy

Thrilling adventure and sweet romance

This was such a great book! It had so much to offer. It had action, adventure, comedy, romance and sexy as sin shifters!! The characters were well developed and engaging and the storyline was incredible. I can't wait for book two!!

Lacy Laurel did a great job narrating this book. I've struggled with her in the past but in this book she appears to have made a fantastic effort to fix the things I has problems with. With those changes I was able to loose myself in her voice and really enjoy the story. I look forward to hearing more from her in the future!

Super, Splendid Storytelling! (lol)

This was SOO good!!
I really enjoyed this story - It had everything I enjoy in a good romance! A strong, slightly cocky female, sweet, sexy and yummy males😍 and magic! Let's not forget the magic!

Overall the story is really well crafted, and I fell in love the Silver and her men! I really enjoyed their journey in the Supernatural Spy School, and the trials they have to go through! Really looking forward to the next book, and hopefully some more sexy time with her men!

And really great job narrating by Lucy Laurel! She really brought the characters to life, and good distinction between the different characters!

Good Listen

Silver is a mage determined to be in the Spy Academy but she is not a shifter. She meets her 4 teammates and they choose their mission but she must date them all, she agrees. Silver can solve any problem and their mission puts all her strengths into play. They pass and she gains something along the way. Story is full of drama, enemies and romance. Could have had more of the harem involved. Ready for #2. Great Narration

SSS Year One

This is such a cool school and yet so scary to attend. I loved these characters that make such a great team together and care greatly for each other as well. The emotions you will feel with this book is huge and you will be cheering them on as they have tests to pass. I can wait to see what year two brings for them!

Mixed feelings

I have mixed feelings. While I thought this book had so much potential, to me though it fell a bit short. I think the heroine need to grow a bit to be a twenty two year old. I don’t think the narrator helped, as she adapted a young sounding voice for her. I just couldn’t get invested in the characters. I just don’t think this is the book for me, perhaps it will be just what others are looking for.

Loved it!

Year One has so much going on! The heroine is great and I felt like she was so relatable. I liked how she doesn't take anything for granted and works hard. She falls fast and hard for the guys and they do the same. It really seems like a close knit unit. The challenges are awesome and I love hearing how they figure things out. Some good steamy scenes! The narrator does a great job and is easy to listen too. I can hardly wait for Year 2!!

My Thoughts on SSS: Year One

If you're looking for a fantastic paranormal, reverse harem with a touch of slow burn thrown in then you definitely want to check out this book.

It had so many things I love about paranormal romance. A great world created with Witches, Angels, Werewolves, and all other kinds of supernatural creatures living amongst each other.

In this story, there's an elite school that supernatural people can come to and learn how to be a spy. It's not easy to get in, and once in, it's even harder to stay. But it all made for one hell of a series starter by this new to me author.

Lacy Laurel is a favorite narrator of mine and I really enjoyed listening to her bring this story and these characters to life.

There was so much packed into this story, and yet when it was over I still felt it was too soon. I need book two to hurry to audio so I can continue this amazing series.
