What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
In a world where witches hate the Fae, Gabriella has just broken the borders between the races wide open…
Gabriella is a bad witch. Well, she’s not evil, she just sucks at magic, and when she turns eighteen, the unthinkable happens: she grows a pair of wings.
Human born Fae are nothing new. An oddity to be sure, but witch born Fae?
They’re a whole other ball of wax.
When she’s summoned to the Eight Wings Academy at twenty-five, the doo-dah hits the fan as harsh truths are revealed to her about the Fae. But no matter how hard Gabriella tries to flunk, to escape a society forged on lies, she can’t do it.
And it isn’t because she’s a brilliant student, either.
She sucks. Hard.
Something, or someone, is making sure she passes, keeping her at the Academy against her will, ensuring she heads straight into the warrior caste and into a troupe with three other Fae.
Except her troupe?
They just happen to be her Virgo—her fated mates.
And where Virgo are concerned, they have the final say on whether she claims them or not.
She’s FAELING FOR THEM, but can she convince them she’s a good catch? When she knows, point blank, she isn’t…?
Thoughts on Faeling for Them
This really breaks the mold of the typical academy RH, adding in some omega verse rules, New Fae myths, Intriguing world building and a reluctant bond that is just getting started.
Done in two parts, it not only introduces the Academy, but sets the stage for a whirlwind romance eight months in the making.

- Very Intriguing.
- Latina FMC… finally!!
- Mixed language throughout.
- Only The important parts are really covered, so you jump forward in time a few instances, eliminates drivel or filler writing.
- It’s a bit hard to get into in the beginning.
- Omega verse just may mess up your feminist mind set, but not quite? Unsure just yet.
First Person, Multiple POV

Final Verdict on Faeling for Them
Serena Akeroyd has a way of taking a genre, twisting it up and making it her own. Faeling for Them is no different, grabbing the Academy sub-genre and tossing it with the Omega-Verse to create a truly interesting tale worth your TBR list. Free on KU.
