Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Darkblood - oops, I mean Darkhen Academy. 

There are three rules to survive the elite supernatural school:

  1. Do not talk or even look at The Seven, the uber-powerful supes that rule the academy.
  2. Never go into the Fae forest on a full moon...or else.
  3. And most definitely do not fall for one of the extremely hot and unattainable instructors. 

Too bad I’ve never really been a rule follower...

A year ago the supernaturals came out of the closet on primetime TV, and about a minute ago I, Luna Hallows, found out I was one of them - well, a half-blood anyway. 

So here I am at Darkhen Academy, the only human and no magical abilities to speak of. The only reason I’m here is because of my father - a man I didn’t even know existed until now. He’s crazy powerful, and they think I could be too. But what could I possibly contribute to an exclusive squad of dragon shifters, fae, witches, and vampires? 

I guess we’re about to find out because the merging of the supernatural and human realms isn’t going as smoothly as planned. If word gets out that humans are no longer safe from the supes, our worlds will once again be closed off. 

It’s up to us to stop that from happening.

This is an upper YA/NA crossover with schmexy supernatural guys and is best suited for age 16 and over. Be warned, the steaminess factor does increase through the course of the series!

Darkblood Academy is set within the world of Hitched but it's not necessary to listen to that series first to enjoy this one.

Super fun new paranormal academy adventure

Luna is unhappy with her life, about to graduate from high school and age out of the foster care system. Since paranormals are out of the closet due to the reality dating show Hitched, Luna is so curious to meet one, but it is unlikely to happen in her small town. But one day Luna has a visitor, a half sister she never knew existed, who is planning to whisk her out of the world she grew up in to take part in the supernatural. I wanted to read Half-Blood after I read the author's previous series Hitched and adored it. I had thought Half-Blood was set in the same world, but I had no idea that this was basically a spin off with cameo's from all my favorite cast mates from Hitched- and my favorite guy Ryder is the love interest! Once Ryder showed up, I was sold on the book (keep in mind I was already enjoying it, but Ryder makes everything better!). Keep in mind that you can read this as a standalone without having read Hitched first (Luna a brand new character), but I don't recommend it because you would miss out on all the previous world building and relationship dynamics of the side characters. This was a nice balance of supernatural shenanigans, magical academy school drama and forbidden love angst. I flew through the pages of the book, completely engrossed in the world building and the danger, hoping for a HEA for my new favorite forbidden couple, and overall really enjoying this read. I listened to the audio and the narrator was a perfect choice for Luna, giving her just the right amount of spunk and determination as well as sounding perfectly age appropriate. I really liked this story and I can't wait to jump back into the series, be it audio or ebook.

Loved it!!

Welcome to Darkblood Academy!! Ohh you guys!! Buckle in because this Academy book is out of this world amazing!! The narrator, Whitney Dykhouse has a very pleasant voice. I really enjoyed the narrator. She was the perfect voice for Luna. She certainly captured my attention!! Luna is a human and she is the only human at Darkblood Academy. I love her character! I loved how the Academy welcomes ALL supernaturals. This is a heart pumping and fast paced read. Plus a handsome off limits instructor and the secret team! What could go wrong? Turns out lots!

I want to be part of the Seven!!!

When supernaturals come out on TV, Luna found out that she was one of them and was taken to Darkhen Academy to train. At first she doesn't show an sign of powers and has a hard time navigating Academy life. This is where she meets the 7 and sorta starts crushing on all the men and also an off limits super hot teacher. Luna has to figure out her new life being a half breed and not the best liked at first. Then a demon marks her and all hell breaks loose. He will have to depend on the 7 for protection to get through it all. This book does end in a bit of a cliff hanger and I can't wait for more. Whitney does a really great job of bringing the story to life and I do love DeRosa's imaginary world. #Audiobx Reviewer

I’ve been looking for a new series and thank goodness I found this one. I hope the fourth book comes out on audiobook before I finish three.

Magical

What a wonderful action packed YA novel that drew me in from the very beginning. The characters are beautifully written with a great plot and a few unexpected twists. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and cannot wait to read the next book. The narrator really suits the characters with clear and distinct voices for each individual.
