This box set includes Books 1 – 3 in the Spellcrest Academy series and is nearly 1,000 pages of adventure, mystery, romance, and twists you’ll never see coming.
As the school year progresses, Maeve discovers her invitation to the Academy might not have been so innocent after all. Sinister forces want her unique abilities and are willing to kill for them.
Maeve doesn’t just need to survive her classes, she must survive the plots against her, a decades-old magical war, and following her own capricious heart. She’s never been averse to diving into danger, but this time, she might be in over her head.
This series is a breath of fresh air. The author is inventive in his magical world with slight nods to the ultimate magical school series, Harry Potter. When you initially open this in your kindle its easy to be overwhelmed with how long it is but it really flies by. The first book sets up this magical world and is a quick read. the second book picks up right where the previous finishes and the action really begins to heat up. The second book ends on a major reveal that will shock. The third book wraps up all the major story lines from the first few books and while the main story is not over, the story concludes with a good resolution.
I loved Maeve as a character, she is confident and courageous but she isn’t an idiot. cross her and you’ll feel her wraith. She isn’t one to quickly forgive, even family. The supporting characters are intriguing and its hard to know who to trust in this rollercoaster ride.
I cant recommend this series enough. It’s creative, engaging and highly entertaining. This is a must for anyone who loves YA Fantasy.
I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. *Blurb and cover image via Goodreads.
