What is it about?

(Blurb from GoodReads)

After my parents were killed by vamps, my uncle took an early retirement from his life as a Hunter to raise me. I grew up training for battles he hoped I’d never fight.

Until the night my school dance sucks, and he takes me out for ice cream after. When the screaming starts, my chocolate-chip-cookie-dough cone splatters on the street. My uncle and I race to help.

An hour later, I’m covered in his blood, shell-shocked, being loaded in a police car for a crime I could never commit.

The Hunters’ Academy rescues me.

Or maybe imprisons me.

The details are a little dicey, and the men training me—handsome Cade and cruel, cold, perfect Nix—try to avoid the subject.

But nothing matters to me now except getting revenge.

I know I’ll make those responsible for my uncle’s death pay. But after my revenge, how will I go on with life, now that the last person who loved me is dead?

Will I be able to come back to the academy and create a new family, find a new home? Or will I have destroyed my chance here?

I’ll think about that tomorrow. Today, I’m out for blood.

Note from the Author

Her Kind Of Magic is book 1 in the Academy of Supernatural trilogy, a paranormal Reverse Harem Series. You’ll find yourself with a quip on the tip of your tongue, handsome men by your side, and a sword in hand as you face down the geists and vamps that plague our world.

Thoughts on Her Kind of Magic

This book starts with a bang and just keeps right on going. Even in the end, you aren’t quite sure who to trust, if anyone. Her life is wrecked, and things are just getting worse! Interesting concept, intriguing flow and curious characters.


  • Very Cool concept.
  • World building is sparse, but interesting.
  • I like the FMC


  • Some of the POVs seems misplaced?
  • Still unsure what’s really going on, but that is kinda the point.

My Final Verdict on Her Kind of Magic

4 out of 5 Stars

Fast, curious and completely magical, this Academy Reverse Harem combines slowburn romance with a dangerous paranormal world, and does it fairly well. Free on Kindle Unlimited.
