Publisher's Summary

The Magical Creatures Academy has sent its finest fairies to recruit her. As a hybrid shape-shifter - half siren, half angel - Selene of the Kunu Clan is one of a kind. It’s a label that makes her the target of a rebel faction of supernatural creatures that seeks to claim her power.

But her power is undeveloped and more a danger to herself than an aid. Yet her magic is her only advantage over the vicious vampires and fierce shifters who seek to eliminate her. 

Soon Selene is on the run in an unfamiliar world and unable to return to her ocean home. At least she’s not alone. Quinn, a shifter with his own secrets, has her back. Selene and Quinn must find a way to escape those that hunt them while surviving their unstable powers. But can Quinn help her stop vampires and shifters who’ve had centuries to master their abilities?

Interesting premise, but slow to get moving

While I was instantly sold on the premise alone - a siren angel hybrid in a world full of magical creatures! - the execution left me rather stationary. The entire first half of the book takes place between: a front stoop, a couch on the patio, and a couch in the living room (and that is no exaggeration). Between these three very close-in-proximity locations, most of the “action” is conversation revolving around Selene insisting how she knows nothing about her unexplored magic and sirangel heritage while the experienced magical beings (shifters, fae, and a witch) insist that she simply must know about what she is capable of (and this theme continues well into the final scenes of the book).

When things do get moving, it is because all of a sudden a horde of power-hungry supernaturals is on its way to steal Selene’s unique magic. It is only then that we start really learning more about Selene and the other creatures, including her mysterious tie to Quinn, another unknown shifter and clearly someone who is going to play an important role in Selene’s life (and probably romantic at that).

As for the narration, I found it just fine – Ms. Marcin does a good job relaying the story, and I had little trouble following it. I would just say that her ‘older male’ voices (especially Irving and Sir Lancelot) sounded essentially the same – for me, that was more noticeable than the blend of female voices.

I have not read any of Ms. Ashta’s other works, so taking this as an introduction to her Magical Creatures world is just fine and didn’t leave me feeling lost or floundering in any way.

For a 5 hour listen, it is short, but could have been shorter without really losing much. Having not yet read the second book, I could easily see the two combined into a fuller story: this is more of an Act I of III than Book 1 of 3. That said, I’m curious to read/listen to the second book in the series, to see where things are going, though I’m not as excited about getting into it as I was initially getting into this one.
I received a free Audible copy of this in exchange for an honest review.

More Magical Creatures

Thank goodness I have previously listened to Magical Creatures because this story is from the same world and has some of the same characters. I liked that even with all the action and explanations there was still time for a little romance. And what a cool Magical Creature as a siren/mermaid and an angel. Great characters and unique world building. Loving this story and can't wait for the next book! The narrator did an excellent job putting you right in the middle of the action.

Enjoyable book!

I enjoyed listening to this audiobook. The characters were entertaining. The only thing that I wish was different was the that the book just kind of ends suddenly.

A great listen

This was a fun new story, and a very quick listen! Lucía does an excellent job at transporting listeners to a creative new setting. I enjoyed Selene, and getting to see her grow and come into her own. The pacing of the book is great, and I really appreciated that the academy setting was done in such a unique and new way. Also, mermaids!! So fun! I’m excited to start book two.

Interesting concept

I received this audiobook in return for leaving a review.
Selene starts as a mermaid, she is sent on a ‘coming of age’ type trip to the surface by the leaders her people. There she ends up shunned by a house, caught off guard, confused, and unsure how to use her newly acquired legs. Queue fight for your life because being completely new in a foreign place is not enough! And let’s not forget the wings sprouting from her back before she’s even used to the legs. She meets shifters, fairies, witches, and even a vampire along the course of her journey for safety, but who should she trust and what is actually safe?

Great start!

This is one of the first worlds I have dived into. I very much enjoyed listening to the narrator and diving into the hybrid world. I’m very anxious to find out more especially Selene’s other hybrid friend. I though the narrator is fine and I felt like she was a great fit to be Selene’s voice. Looking forward to learning more about this world.

first time reading Lucìa Ashta

the story was good, but somewhat hard to follow. I believe its because this is the first book of hers ive read and felt like I was already in a storyline that I wasnt sure was going on. I believe this is a side story of magical creatures academy and i have not read any of those so I was somewhat lost figurong out who and what was going on. around chapter 16 though it kinda of clicks and flows pretty decently from there. I'm intrigued and will start at the beginning of the main story line of magical creature academy!
the narrator fit this role beautifully!

Good audiobooks

The performance was good. Story line was exciting no skipping, good imagery but I wish the chapters were longer.
