The Raven Academy could save my life… if it doesn’t kill me first.
Waitressing might pay my bills, but it’s my cage fighting at night that really cranks my gears. Until some weird hidden power helped me win a fight. Now no one wants to step in the ring with me.
And my life is going from weird to worse. The same night a werewolf tried to tear out my throat, a guy shows up telling me magic exists AND goes on to prove it. And, oh yeah, my life is in danger now that my abilities have started to show.
Apparently the answer is for me to follow this hottie professor to some Raven Academy and learn magic. School was never my jam, but at least this one comes with a hot demon who’s helping me train and a sexy fellow student who seems to be interested in more than just study hall. Throw in Professor Sexy Pants tutoring me privately to improve my magic, and it’s every girl’s dream.
Until I find out I’m part of some save-the-world prophecy, and the fate of all supernatural creatures rests on my shoulders. Great.
If my sexy consorts and I can’t pummel my magic into shape soon, we’re all doomed…
Magic Misfit is the first book in the Raven Academy series, a reverse harem romance with a university-age heroine having all the fun. Get this book if you like kick-ass heroines, steamy heroes, and smexy scenes so hot they’ll steam up your e-reader,. All characters are 18+.
Delaney is recruited to join the Raven Academy, a school dedicated to training witches to use their powers properly. While she’s there, the discovers that she is the subject of an ancient prophecy… which makes her the Chosen One TM.
When she arrives at the academy, she finds herself immediately attracted to her brand spanking new insta-love mates who are dedicated to keeping her safe and training her to use her powers so she can fulfil the prophecy.
The relationships are intense, but I found myself not loving the fact that 2/3 of the men in Delaney’s harem aren’t actually that nice to her and the other is possessive without actually making any effort yet she’s absolutely smitten. Call me a romantic, but I think that you should actually be actively nice to the other person before turning up in their dreams and poking them in their no-no place.
I listened to this book in audio and Meghan Kelly is an absolute delight – she voices both the male and female characters perfectly and really captures Delaney’s personality. Delaney is fiercely optimistic and can’t be kept down, even though the world seems to be trying its best to see her miserable and/or dead. Her perkiness is surprisingly endearing though I did find myself cringing in some scenes on her behalf!
