<b>"This book is Harry Potter meets the Hunger Games in a bold twist on a classic magical young adult adventure." </b><br /><i> Jaymin Eve, Bestselling Author of Supernatural Academy </i><br /><br /><b> You Don’t Choose The Academy. The Academy Chooses You. </b><br /><br />Being accepted into an elite school of magic, monsters, and assassins was not my idea of higher education. But here I am, fighting my way through the Culling Trials to claim my right to be taught. <br /><br />As if the gauntlet-type physical and mental tests aren’t enough, people are going missing. <br /><br />People that are my friends. <br /><br />In a dangerous world where no one is as they seem, the golden rule is simple: Trust no one. They think we should just look out for ourselves. That we should leave the fallen behind and ask no questions. <br /><br />They clearly think we’re idiots. I got this far by trusting my instincts, and I’m not going to back down now. <br /><br />Those kids won’t be left to die. <br /><br />Not on my watch.<br /><br /><i>Shadowspell Academy Book 1 and Shadowspell Academy Book 2 end with a cliffhanger<br /><br />Book 3 will release June 11, 2019 </i>

I foolishly thought I’d survived the worst. <br /><br />My team is falling to pieces around me and my heart is shattered for the losses I’ve endured. But I can’t stop when I’m so close to the end. There are too many people depending on me. <br /><br />I foolishly thought there wasn’t much more I could lose…until the nature of my bloodline comes to light. <br /><br />I’m not what I thought I was. Not what anyone thought I was. <br />But to tell people the truth would be to kill us all. <br /><br />To fail the trials will mean death, but to succeed might damn me for life.

A place so dangerous, they don’t guarantee you’ll make it out alive. <br /><br />If he doesn't go our entire family will be killed. <br /><br />It’s the same invitation my older brother received three years ago—the same place he mysteriously died. <br /><br />The academy has already killed one sibling. I’ll be damned if they take another.<br /><br />I do the only thing an older sister can: chop off my hair, strap on two bras to flatten the girls, and take my brother’s place. <br /><br />Magic and monsters are real. Assassins are coming for me, and the dead are prone to rise. What’s a girl faking it as a boy supposed to do? That’s right—beat the academy at its own game. <br /><br />Or die trying.<br /><br /><i>Shadowspell Academy Book 1 and Shadowspell Academy Book 2 end with a cliffhanger<br />Book 2 will release May 14, 2019<br />Book 3 will release June 11, 2019 </i><br />

But after a disturbing twist of events, Harley quickly realizes that her past is darker than she could ever have imagined.<br /><br />And that someone in the coven is out for her blood.<br /><br />With the help of Wade and her new friends, she must figure out who the traitor is and why they’re targeting her...
