- The Hidden Court -
(The Paranormal University Files: Skylar Book 1)
Magic school. Hot shifters. Hidden dangers. Was your college this fun?
The world knows paranormal creatures exist. They’re clerks, nurses, teachers, and even lawyers. But first, before they’re allowed free rein in the mortal realm, half-fae like Skylar must endure four years of training at PNRU’s academy of magic and higher learning.
When her freshman year begins, it doesn’t take long to discover the school has serious issues. Between rogue vampire attacks in Chicago and a rising student body count, she’s convinced something sinister is at large. On top of that, the only non-fae to take her seriously is Gabriel, a wereraven from the infamous night class. He’s hotter than hellfire, dedicated to his studies, and dating the campus mean girl–but willing to give Sky private martial arts lessons.
And since nothing is tastier to a nosferatu than fae blood, Sky needs every advantage she can get… before her first year away from home becomes her last.
A thrilling blend of paranormal romance and spell-binding adventure with the tension of Vampire Academy, the atmosphere of Harry Potter, and the faerie magic of The Cruel Prince. Skylar’s story is a slow-burn, friends-to-lovers adult romance series of full-length novels following the same couple.
"The Hidden Court" Reviewed
A suspense-filled school year for the paranormal students, with a splash of romance.
This book is a great read, and the romance element just adds to what would be an otherwise great story.
Starting a new school can be difficult enough, but when you’re going to a school for supernatural students things are always going to be a little different. I loved how each of the races had a unique perspective on not only each other, but the history of the magical world, and the events that are going on around them.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a suspense story without something going on to raise the tensions between the various races, or the individuals, and the author delivers on this in a wonderfully entertaining way.
What really surprised me though, is how much I came to care for the supporting cast of characters, just as much as I did for the protagonist and the love-interest. There is a great variety in the characters, and each of them has qualities that set them apart, as well as compliment each other.
I’ll definitely be adding more of this author’s work to my collection…
