Publisher's Summary

***Academy Reverse Harem***
 

Magic exists. I know - it’s in my blood.

Unfortunately, not all people from magical bloodlines have powers, and at 22, I’m several years past the age they usually appear. So I’ve resigned myself to a boring, magic-less life.

Then something strange happens....

I get stuck in the middle of a bar fight, and instead of just punching the guy back, I blow a hole in the wall.

So...I guess I do have powers. But they’re unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. This shit is definitely not normal. 

And it seems the magical authorities agree, because they give me a choice: either I go to school to learn to control my crazy new magic, or they’ll take it away. Permanently. 

Now, if I can just survive the bitchy, mean girls determined to take me down a peg; the mysterious attacks on students; the three hot-as-hell guys who don’t seem turned off by my prickly exterior; and the professor who makes me long for detention, maybe I’ll get out of here in one piece. 

Wouldn’t bet on it though. 

Welcome to the Academy of Unpredictable Magic. 

Spark is the first book in the Academy of Unpredictable Magic series, a medium-burn reverse harem story intended for ages 18 plus, featuring a badass chick and the four sexy men who fall in love with her.

***Scorching***

It's a fast paced, full of sizzling sexual tension and sexy times *fans myself* that keeps my headphone glued to my ears lol. so so good and the chemistry between Elliot and her guys specially Roman and Dimitri oh wow it's scorching. The narrative helps a lot because Sara Puckett has the sexiest voice ever, she can do a male voice like no other oh gods she is good thank you.

A little SPARK

I found the narrator didn't interperate the males voices well. If there were 3 men speaking they all sounded the same. The story reminded me of an adult version of Harry Potter.

Good storyline!!

The story is good. It is interesting but sometimes I feel the main female character is quite straight-forward in asking the guys about their relationship 😂. Too direct actually.

I devoured this book so quickly. I couldn’t put it down. I’m looking forward to getting to know the characters more as the story develops.

The most unlikable main character ever.

The main character is an idiot. Not in a ditsy way. She goes against all sound logic just to be contrary. She's terrible to perfect strangers with no provocation. It would take a twist of fate, magical insta-lust, and some of that "I can see deeply into your soul and tell exactly who you are just by staring" nonsense to make anyone want to date this girl or even just be her friend. and that's exactly what happens.

She is the cliched "I have been hurt so I'm going to take it out on anyone who comes into contact with me" character. She is the early 20's cliche of constantly insisting that she is an adult and behaves maturely and better than those around her. She also complains about the mean girls at school being rude but is a hypocrite because she treats complete strangers like dirt too.

Sadie Moss is a good writer and keeps the story well paced and interesting, but her characters are lazily shaped. This plot is also ridiculously similar to ACADEMY OF ASSASSINS which is also an RH. The mystery is the exact same. It is also similar to her own story BOUND BY MAGIC in that the main character finds out later in life than most that she has magic. Her writing skill does make for an entertaining read especially if you don't roll your eyes to hard at the MC's "prickly" behavior.

I love the story but the narrator ruins the story

I've already read the book but wanted to have the audio book too, since I love the story so much.
Unfortunately I can't stand the narrator's voice/tone/style. To me it honestly feels like the narrator can't be bothered to try - like she doesn't really want to be doing this.

Regardless, the story is easy and fun. The characters are likable, and I really adore that the MC is in her 22's (versus all the 15-18 year olds). The world-building is interesting; I want to see more from this world in the future!

Meh.

The idea for the story was really great, however there wasn't enough meat to the whole thing! I got used to the narrator, although her voice is a little robotic at times. I'm all for RH, but there has to be a real story with it too. This was pretty disappointing. 🙁

Awesome Series Start

This is the first book I’ve read by Ms. Moss and I was brought to it from the narrator, Ms. Puckett. I’ve fallen in love with Ms. Puckett’s narration and her seamless ability to change tones and accents between her characters.

In honesty, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I love what I’ve found. This series is almost an adult version of another particular magic school series… Here the schooling for magic does not start until college age due to the onset of magic abilities, so the characters are more mature and the events are targeted toward adults.

I really fell in love with the characters and the intensity between them. The heroine may be involved with four different men, but they are all unique and different, which keeps every very interesting. I cannot wait to read more.

I was provided with a free copy of this audio book for my honest review. The views expressed here are entirely my own.

Really?

Elliot is rather conceited. And the oh poor me gets old. How many times does it have to be repeated? Then throw in the gratuitous sex. Sloppy. Ms. Puckett sounds bored reading. Don’t blame her. It is difficult to get into the story. Also disappointed that there wasn’t more on the magic, the training and such. Sex, harem for Elliot, and a smattering of magic. A waste or time and money.

Unpredictable, Unexpected and out of this World!

I found 'spark' addictive and impossible to put down, it reminded me a bit of a mature and steamy version of the Harry Potter series, every bit as gripping and absorbing with a touch of 'Hunger Games' thrown in! I enjoyed both ya series but 'Spark' gave me an adult, mature and exciting version with attitude, I couldn't put the book down and read the next right after.

Heroine with a chip on her shoulder

Ok so I know life hasn’t been easy for the MC but she kind of treats everyone with a double standard and I don’t think the narrators not so expressive voice helps. Overall I liked the story and I’ll listen to the next and I do love a good academy RH but I hope her personality changes a bit with the next book.

Romance, suspense it has it all.

This is a fabulous start to this series, the characters have been wonderfully developed and the world building and romance have been beautifully interwoven with a suspense tale that concluded in a way that I happily didn't see coming. Great story, great narration and great conclusion. Bring on the next book in this exciting series.
Sarah Puckett has become one of my favourite narrators, she delivers on all fronts and has exceptional voice acting skills.

Spark is the first book in the Academy of Unpredictable Magic series by Sadie Moss. This is the first book I have read/listen to by Ms. Moss, but definitely won’t be the last. I enjoyed how the characters grew and the interaction between Elliot and her men. This book grabbed me from the very beginning and I listen to the whole book in one day.
This is also the first book that I listened to by Sarah Puckett and I think she is brilliant. She really bought the characters to life and made the book flow seamlessly.
I would highly recommend this book and series.

Unpredictable Magic

This was an amazing start to a new series! At age twenty-two, Elliot has come to terms that the her family’s magical bloodline has ended with her deceased parents. That is, until her sister, Maddie, has come into her powers and is being whisked away to Neptune Academy to learn to control them. Shortly after, Elliot finds herself in a one night stand, a bar fight, and then a hospital. As it turns out, her powers have finally manifested, she has unpredictable magic, and has to go to Griffin Academy or relinquish her powers forever. I really loved Elliot’s snarky and reserved personality and watching her journey of being reintroduced to the magical world. Her harem was well built and each guy has a different personality and power- Asher is insightful and can read/ control minds even though he doesn’t like to do it, Demetri is standoffish at first, but deep down he does care about her and he can phase, walk through walls, and duplicate, Kam has a fun, outgoing, and shameless personality and can absorb magic and teleport, and Roman is her professor, studious, sexy, and can raise the dead. This book was filled with betrayal, mystery, steamy scenes, and magic and I can’t wait for Elliot and her harem’s journey to continue!
Sarah did another outstanding job with this narration! I’m eager to listen to every book that she narrates because she becomes the main character with her performance and breathes their personalities to life.

Spark

This is a reverse harem, prn: magic book. A young girl who comes into her powers later than normal, and is forced to attend the academy to keep them. There are a few inconsistencies and jumps throughout the story that are hard to overlook but for the most part the story is pretty good, and isn't completely focused on the R.H.

I love Sarah Puckett's narrations, and have listed to almost all of her audio performances, I have yet to find one I didn't like. She brings the characters out and brings the book a step above what it would have been without the audio.

Reviewed for Audiobook Obsession

Spark is one of those stories where from the beginning you can’t help but love the heroine. She is feisty, family oriented, loyal to a fault, but has a bad girl lurking underneath. Deep down though you know she is disappointed when her sister shows signs of something she doesn’t have, till one day all heck breaks loose and her life changes forever.
I can’t wait to see where this story leads next, reverse harems are such fun and this one I think will be scrumptious.
Sarah Puckett did an amazing job narrating with all the characters in this story.

Entertaining with just the right amount of drama

It is becoming apparent that I’m a Sarah Puckett fanatic. As expected, she performed this narration flawlessly.

I enjoyed the drama in this book. From the student/teacher relationship (which didn’t start out as such) to the mean girls picking on the new girl, to the relationship that develops between Elliot and the three guys. It was overall an entertaining listen.
