Publisher's Summary

Mack begins her training at the mages' academy in the hope that, by complying, the stasis spell will be lifted from her old friend Mrs. Alcoon. However, once there, she finds herself surrounded by unfriendly adults and petulant teenagers, the majority of whom seem determined to see her fail.

Feeling attacked on all fronts, Mack finds it harder and harder to keep a rein on her temper. Forced to attend anger management classes and deal with the predatory attentions of Corrigan, the Lord Alpha of the shapeshifter world, her emotions start to unravel. But when she comes across a familiar text within the walls of the mages' library, which might just provide the clues she needs to unlock the secrets of her background and her dragon blood, she realizes that her problems are only just beginning.…

Still keeping it interesting

Finally, the last chapters of the book were on the verge of being intense. :) Fist time I actually feel a little in suspense at what might happen next. Yaay. I hope it meets my expectations. :)

Getting better.

I'm done

I'm finally giving up on this one. The idea behind the story is good but the main character lacks even one redeeming quality. Yet people are still drawn to her....much less even like her? Whatever.

Also, I was struggling after book 2 with these same issues, which got worse, and read some reviews to see if I was alone in this opinion. I came across one the pointed out the excessive use of the 1st person so of course that meant I noticed all 8 million uses of the word "I". Thanks for that whoever you are. Of course I also noticed the authors 2nd favorite word too.... the F bomb.

Fizzeled out for me.

I got first person digression fatigue from this one. It takes forever for anything to happen -- which assumes that something finally does happen. I'm halfway through part 2 of this one and I'm so bored I keep putting off finishing it.

Will she or won't she get together with Corrigan? Who knows? She's such a bitch I hardly care. Corrigan deserves better.

Great! Can't get enough.

I've read the whole series and thought I'd listen to the series. The narrator could work on the acting and nailing different voices because the characters come off differently (maybe that's just me). Still loved it! despite how irritating Mack can be, I still love her and all the other characters.

A struggle to finish

I like the story except the part that felt Hogwarts-like. Very little action, not very exciting. I am debating whether it is worth reading the rest of the series.

Doesn't quite live up to the first two...

The first two created an interesting world with interesting creatures and a potential romantic interest; however, sending her to school brought an almost adult book into a much more teen realm. I feel like this story could have been a novella and much more compelling. I'll still get the next one to see if the spark and potential fire returns, but I'm a bit skeptical.

Loved It!

I haven't enjoyed a series so much in a long time. I was anxious to read the next in the series long before each book ended. I'm starting the next one now!!

Can’t Get Enough!!

First off the narration is perfect I LOVE Saskia!! Now for the book...

So I don't usually write reviews for books in series apart from the first one...bc I just have soo much trouble not giving away spoilers!!! *shocked face* anyone else with me there? No just me, okay moving on

Honestly I think this book has got to be one of my absolute favourites so far out of this series...and OH MY GOODNESS....THE ENDING!!!! That was WAAAAAAY TOOOOOO INTENSE!!! There were tears in my eyes reading that!! 😢

Helen Harper that was truly an amazing and incredible journey you took me on!!!....but really....really...all I can say is why???? And I think anyone who has read this book and of course yourself Helen...no exactly to wat I am referring to!!

Honestly couldn’t wait to read the next instalment!!!!

Happy Listenings everyone 😁🤓

Paranormal, action oriented. Overall average

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would say this is on okay book. You won't dislike it love it. Average storyline and average characters. If you like strong female characters you probably wont like this book too much. The main character is a strong girl but she doubts and grovels over things she shouldn't be which is frustrating.
