Supernatural Academy: Year One

by Jaymin Eve
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Academy Urban Fantasy

Available on Kindle and Kindle Unlimited

Down and Dirty

This feels like a coming of age Academy novel, though there is really nothing NA about it. Wonderful introductory novel to a new part of Jaymin Eve’s every growing world – free on KU.

What is it about?

(Blurb from GoodReads)

Maddison James is about to discover some truths about the world.

Firstly … supernaturals exist.
WTF? 

Secondly … she is one, even though no one seems to know exactly what kind.
Double WTF. 

Thirdly … she’s about to go back to school.
Well, things just got a little more interesting.

The Supernatural Academy is where shifters, vampires, magic users, and fey are educated. Where they are taught about their abilities, and how to function in the human world. Maddison already has the human part down, but this supernatural thing is an entirely new dangerous game.

Example one: mean girls who can actually turn you into a frog.

Example two: Asher Locke, a god at the Academy. Not literally … well, who knows for sure. He certainly acts the part, as do all of his minions who worship him.

Asher drives her crazy, because apparently gorgeous and arrogant is her thing. Sparks fly between them, and the more they’re thrown together, the more Asher is determined to figure out what’s been blocking her abilities.

Until the moment the truth is revealed, and they find out nothing in this supernatural world is what they thought.

Including each other.

Supernatural Academy is 105k words, full length urban fantasy story. Recommended 17+ due to language and sex scenes.

Thoughts on Supernatural Academy: Year One

Same world, new facet

If you’ve read any of the Supernatural Prison Books, then you will recognize this world – and even one character. If you haven’t, no worries – this is a new addition to that growing world and can be read without prior experience.

Maddison is thrown head first into a world she didn’t expect, but fortunately, there are a few gentle souls to help catch her – and one very intense pair of Atlantean eyes. It’s magical, convoluted and academy rich enough to satisfy even the most ardent of school fans.

Perspective

First Person, Single POV

Ending Type

Episodic with pseudo cliffhanger

Rating

NC-17 (M/F)

Pros:

  • LOVE this world and how it grows with each new addition.
  • Louis…. he’s barely a character here, but I still squealed.
  • The Atlantean five…. almost too powerful for one school. Not a bully book though, rest easy. Nor is it RH, sadly.

Cons:

  • Foreshadowing gets a bit blatant.
  • Perfect RH set up…. but nope. Nadda. Not happening. Damn it.
  • Drags in a few places.

Favorite Line

That was the thing with scars … you really couldn’t get rid of them. Even after they faded, the shadow of the injury remained. And it always would. (19%)

Verdict

4 out of 5 Stars

I really enjoyed this addition to Jaymin Eve’s Supernatural World. If you have read anything set in that universe, or even if you haven’t, this is a must read. Free on KU.
