THORNWOOD ACADEMY 3: FOR DEAR LIFE
I expected the guys to assist me in solving the Thornwood Academy murders, not add a new victim to the body count.
Following events at the lodge and my unfortunate encounter with the fence post, I’ve no choice but to turn to my father for help. Of course, my blood-covered entourage of guys don’t exactly receive a warm welcome, but at least Grayson walks away in one piece.
With suspects galore, I can’t stay on the edge if I want to find the truth, so I’m forced to insert myself further into the Thornwood Academy social scene. But even a seemingly harmless date in town turns into chaos, wild accusations, and a trip to the hospital. As if that’s not enough, I stumble on my roommate’s secret, which leads to painful compromises.
The closer I grow to Rowan, Grayson, and Leif, the more our lives entangle. After spending my life avoiding a world I don’t understand, I’m grappling with unhelpful feelings for my bonded witch and his powerful magic, the vampire whose blood entices me, and the half-shifter who gifts me strange things. Not to mention attempting to control my dark and deadly side, which presents its own problems.
I can’t decide what’s more challenging—clearing my name of murder charges or understanding this strange new version of myself emerging. And I don’t mean the throat-ripping one.
With two dead and at least one undead, time’s running out before the killers’ next target dies. My enemies might play their strongest hand when I’m least expecting, but they won’t beat a Blackwood. At the end of the day, I’ll wear the crown.
Mystery, secrets, and betrayals abound as I navigate a world filled with danger and shadows while trying to keep those I care about safe. Who knew Thornwood Academy would offer me so much more than my dark heart could ever hope for?
NIGHTWORLD ACADEMY: WINTERFALL LEGACY
The First poses a greater threat to us than the Dominion ever has
And she’s moved into the Winterfall House
Following Ione’s death, I thought our biggest problem would be dealing with Gabriella’s revenge. But now we face more than I could imagine in our fight to cut down the Dominion and its leader.
The First returned to the Winterfall House with us and she shows no sign of leaving. This primordial vampire demands we retrieve the blood that Gabriella stole when she freed her from the pit beneath the academy—then she wants us to kill the Dominion leader. The First claims she’s willing to bargain for our lives if we perform her task.
But why is the First with us, and what are her true plans? Because if Winterfall magic can create half the key to lock her away again, why hasn’t she killed me?
We discover that Gabriella’s death would come at a cost. The Dominion leader has created a safeguard to protect her from our group, and we might not be able to end Gabriella’s life. And although the First offers us a solution to the problem, the risk could be too great.
As we try to escape the games the First plays with us and figure out the Blackwood and Winterfall spells needed to trap the creature again, there’s yet another complication.
Dorian Blackwood. Ally or enemy?
This one week of nightmares in the Winterfall House contains more threat to our new future than anything we faced at the academy. Because whether Gabriella survives or not, one of our lives still hangs in the balance.
I’m struggling against Blackwood magic consuming me, and I’ve lost my future sight so I can’t see what will happen to us all. But I’m worried because doesn’t war always have casualties?
