Publisher's Summary

If she could make it through her first semester without killing anyone...that'd be great.
 

San Francisco Bay Coven has been torn apart and no one feels this more than Mika Marshall. Kenzie Kavanagh exposed her father and brother's betrayal.
 

So Mika is starting at the University of Morgana a semester late and praying to the Fates that she'll be able to catch up and graduate with her class. But as a witch with an undeclared specialty she's trying not to bring too much attention to herself.
 

Because Mika has a secret and if she doesn't learn to control her powers, people will die.
 

This is a slow burn reverse harem academy series. All paranormal books by Emma Dean exist in the same world - the Council of Paranormals.

Loved it!

I've already read this book and the subsequent releases in the past, but I love the story of Mika, her guys and her friends so much that I'm thrilled to be able to listen to it on audio. Melissa Schwairy KILLED IT! Her narration really brought Mika to life as she begins her journey at Morgana University. I can not wait until the next one comes out!

AMAZINGLY AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not only did this book pull me out of the perpetual state of boredom that I was suffering in, but it also made me really happy. The plot was to die for, and something new. Unlike many of its brethren, that being paranormal reverse harem academy books, Something Wicked had an original plot that had not been done to death. The heroine, Mika, was not the regular Mary Sue but a 'book' person with a backstory that was unlike anything I've read recently. I cannot wait to read the rest of the series is all out because I 100% plan to continue this series.

Melissa Schwairy is an excellent narrator and was a magnificent choice for this book. I loved her ability to differentiate between characters and her voice in general.

I completely recommend that you buy this book because it's just plain awesome.

An excellent launch to a great series

I love this series: Emma Dean is one of my favorite authors, and Morgana University is a fantastic setting. Mika and her crew are fantastic, and Dean does a great job writing an ensemble that feel realistic and grounded even in the midst of a supernatural world. The narrator does an excellent job bringing them to life, and I plan on loading up the entire series on audio.

Loved this

This was a great a beginning to an imaginative series. This story just pulled me in and I really enjoyed Mika. I enjoyed watching her start to form the beginnings to what will surely be a very interesting harem. The foxes were fun and playful and shows us there is more to this world than the prejudices of it. Will be impatiently waiting for the next audiobook to come out.

A wicked great listen

Book 1 in the series. The author Emma knows how to get the readers attention. She takes a fantastic outlook to her paranormal stories and gives them twists and turns. Her characters are strong , daring , and some lighthearted. Both hero and heroine learn to rely on each other to resolve a dark issue.
Her heroine Mika a witch needs to resolve something that is haunting her from her past and is stopping her from using her full powers .
The story ends on a cliffhanger and boy what an ending, it’s a mystery that is dark that Mika sees

Melissa Schwairy Performance was great . Her voice is smooth, strong and steady. Her tone for all the characters was spot on .

The First of Many exciting Instalments!

This was the first book by Emma Dean I had listened to, and I definately want more! it was an interesting story that sucked me in from the beginning and kept me hanging on for more, full of intrigue and suspense and exciting characters. Mika makes a great heroine, determined to keep her distance from everyone to 'protect her secret', but the friends she unintentially makes are irresistable along with the amazing array of romantic interests, 'why choose' indeed! This was a great first instalment, I'm hooked and can't wait to start the next book.

Paranormal Academy RH

Interesting start of series, great character building. Witches, Shifters, Hunters, and demons. Short, but lays the foundation to what could be a great academy series.

Great start to the series!

This is the first book in what is shaping up to be another fantastic RH/WC series in the Council of Paranormal Universe.

I really enjoyed the characters, the story, the narration.

This is a Why Choose series meaning there are multiple potential partners and the MC doesnt have to choose just 1! This is also slow-burn meaning things are pretty tame in this book, especially compared to the authors other works. This is also a series, so this book has a serious cliffy... I might have vertigo still...

While you can start here and understand the series, as there is enough basic recap, some of the history and backstory is the main story in the series that starts with What the Fox (fantastic series though a much faster burn). This means if you haven't read that series this one contains spoilers for that one.

TW/spoiler below
.

.
There is talk of the MC being sexually assaulted in the past, just as another character in the last series was. It is a thing that happened and affects her but she does not relive the actual assualt in detail in this book. She is mentally hurt and seems to be healing from it during the book. I believe the author approaches it very well.

Soooooo good!

I loved this shory. The characters are great and they have a lot of emotional growing to do, which I loved. they aren't perfect characters, they have flaws and I am excited to see them grow and become stronger. Also the narrator was great! I cannot wait until the next books come out on audio!
