Welcome to Lexi C. Foss’ Midnight Fae Academy, where all the sexy Midnight Fae come out to play.
Trayton Nacht? Book boyfriend material. Check
Kolstov Nacht? Book boyfriend material. Check
Headmaster Zephyrus? I’m not kicking him out of my bunk for cracker crumbs. Check, check.
Shade? 92% into Midnight Fae Academy, I fall completely and totally in love with Shadow. Team Shade 2020.
I’m unchecking boxes; I’m kicking Zeph out of my bunk for crumbs. I’m carving ‘Ali loves Shade 4eva’ in the drywall of my reading room (Don’t tell my husband. He just built me the reading room for Valentine’s Day).
Shadow doesn’t get a POV throughout, so it’s one of only a few peeks into his head. I honestly love the rogue. And he is a rogue. God, I do love rogues.
But wait, What is the Midnight Fae Academy, and who cares?
Midnight Fae Academy is where the Blood Fae go to learn to use their powers. At the same age that humans go to college, Midnight Fae start attending the academy. The Blood Lines, all Midnight Fae, King Nacht, and the Elite Blood, and the Council all live within the kingdom.
Aflora is the last heir to the Earth Fae Monarchy. She maintains the source of Earth magic; she’s royalty, and essential to the realm. She’s not a Blood Fae in any way.
Not only is it forbidden for Shadow to mate Aflora without the sanction of the Council, but it’s also a violation to bite someone against their will, and its a death sentence to mate with another fae species.
After Shade breaks all these rules, the only thing keeping her alive is her royal blood. And she is stuck in the Midnight Fae realm mainly because his bite is changing her magic, and she isn’t weilding only elemental magic anymore.
Much of the same magical tenants of Ella’s Masquerade follow over here. Tray and Ella play cameos. BUT there are some hard passes here that need resolves in the next book.
Wands. I hate Harry Potter. There I said it. Harry Potter reproduction is so overdone it makes me want to puke. People almost don’t realize they are pulling from the cannon when they do it, and it makes me.
I hope we are going somewhere with these wands.
And I’m not at all a fan of the Zeph moping. He calls Kols Prince Crybaby, but my goodness is he salty and pouty.
That said, I am on tenterhooks for book two.
Team Shade 2020
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary advance copy of this book.
Title: Midnight Fae Academy (Midnight Fae Academy #1)
Author: Lexi C. Foss
Genre: Reverse Harem, Dark Fantasy Romance
Release Date: February 22, 2020
Welcome to Midnight Fae Academy.
Home of the Dark Arts.
And cruelly handsome fae.
A forbidden bite led to my capture and recruitment.
There are no flowers here.
I’m an Earth Fae who doesn’t belong here.
They can play their little mind games all they want, but I’m going to find a way back to my elemental world. Even if it kills me.
Except Headmaster Zephyrus is one step ahead of my every move.
Prince Kolstov won’t stop cornering me.
And Shadow–the reason I’m in this damn mess to begin with–haunts my dreams.
My affinity for the earth is dying and being replaced by something more sinister. Something powerful. Something deadly.
The Midnight Fae believe this is my fate.
They claim that I was “recruited” for a purpose.
To battle a rising presence.
Or to die trying.
I don’t owe them a damn thing. But if I have to pass their trials to find my way home, then so be it. I survived a plague and far worse in the Elemental Fae realm. An ominous energy? Please. What a joke.
Give it your best shot.
And don’t you dare bite me.
Or I’ll make you regret it.
Author Note: This is a dark paranormal why choose trilogy with bully romance (enemies-to-lovers) elements. Despite Aflora’s opinions on the matter, there will definitely be biting. Shadow, aka Shade, guarantees it. This book ends on a cliffhanger.
