Publisher's Summary

Now a Wall Street Journal and Washington Post best seller!

You don’t choose the academy. The academy chooses you.

Being accepted into an elite school of magic, monsters, and assassins was not my idea of higher education. But here I am, fighting my way through the Culling Trials to claim my right to be taught.

As if the gauntlet-type physical and mental tests aren’t enough, people are going missing. People who are my friends. 

In a dangerous world where no one is as they seem, the golden rule is simple: Trust no one. They think we should just look out for ourselves. That we should leave the fallen behind and ask no questions. They clearly think we’re idiots. I got this far by trusting my instincts, and I’m not going to back down now. 

Those kids won’t be left to die. Not on my watch.

Whoa!

Holy goblins and vampires, Batman! I mean, dang! This book was more intense, more chaotic and had a heck of lot more of Wilde being the loose, crazy, on edge fighter she is. It’s a lot being in the Culling Trials. Each task gets the group into more and more hot water yet, they pull themselves out. It’s a matter of staying one step ahead of the others. Wilde’s inner magic, the sensations and feelings she gets are getting more in-tune with her actions and she’s learning more and more to listen to her inner self. It may be the only thing that saves her when one of her group is taken, her secret starts to get out and chaos blooms at her side. It’s a wild ride and I’m so ready for more!

Loved it!

This series is awesome! Lots of excitement, mystery and laughter. In one scene, I could swear that I felt the wind on my face, it was so descriptive that I was completely immersed. Starting book 3 now!

Wonderful story

Book 2 is highly entertaining with a rag tag crew of supes testing their abilities against the academy’s trials in order to determine whether or not they are worthy of additional training. The crew maybe young but there isn’t much in the way of the teenage against and typical words ( thank goodness)! Wilde is freaking hilarious! The storyline is action packed and fast paced. The characters are likable and believable! The story ends on a cliffhanger. The narrator did a fantastic job!

Dangerous times, but there's unicorns!

Wild continues to avoid drawing attention to herself. One of her teammates goes missing, only for her to realize that he's not the only one. Wild also gets confirmation that she's in danger. She continues with her trials dealing with a troll, shifters & unicorns. Her secret is getting harder to keep hidden and she's discovering more about herself that's not normal.

Shadowspell Academy: The Culling Trials

Loads of fun following the trials with the different challenges. Wold proves she is the true leader, but is unable to keep her secret from everyone.
