Corviticus University

(Book 1)

by J.E. Cluney
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Slow Burn, PNR Academy RH
Available on Kindle and Kindle Unlimited

Down and Dirty

An alright slow Burn RH that introduces a new world. Filled with funny Australian quips and slang. Free on Kindle Unlimited.

What is it about?

(Blurb from GoodReads)

New life? Check.
Road to a career? Check.
Housemates? Check.
Can you keep your hands off them? Undetermined.

I wasn’t expecting my new housemates to be as hot and sexy as they are. And it’s going to be a struggle to stick to my personal rules of no sexual relationships with them. They’re all so tempting, sweet, and funny. Well, except for one.
Yep, definitely hard.
And with their help, I’ll learn to manage my mischief magic. No more flying, honking vibrators for me.
But questions rise when more powers surface for me, and it’s obvious I’m not just your average pixie halfling.
Can we find answers together? And can I stick to my personal rules of friends only?

***Please note this is a mature reverse harem, slow/medium burn. Intended for audiences 18+*** 

Thoughts on Corviticus University

An RH set in Australia? Wonderful!

But….. The actuality of this is a little off. It’s filled with Aus specific references and slang, but the action is sorely lacking. I mean…. nothing really happens till the last chapter or two, and that comes out of nowhere. It’s more of an introduction, but… eh? Maybe book 2 will pick up.

All the characters have some past trauma that is brought to the fore in this story, once Allison joins the household and they start interacting. Admittedly, the baggage and pain the group suffers is pretty intense, though it does little to up the ante or press forward the narrative. Except Kit, also known as Oliver, who is a True Shifter (a shifter that can change into any animal, not just one) but is cursed to be limited to staying as a house cat. That little tidbit offers some funny moments as well as some sympathy to his character.


  • Australia.
  • Red kangaroo shifter (but we don’t see him shift in this book)
  • Slang is funny.


  • What is happening here?
  • Uh… nothing is really happening here. Feels like there should be more plot points.


First Person, Multiple POV

Ending Type

Mild Cliffhanger


R to NC-17 towards very end

Romantic Dynamic


Character Age Range

18 – 22


‘Meh. This is one of those books you can take or leave, though there are plenty of really great concepts found within. Kangaroo shifters, rare werewolves, True shifters, pixies… there’s potential. Considering it’s free on KU, there is no harm in checking it out and seeing if Book 2 picks up the pace.
