Publisher's Summary

Having magic is a blessing from the gods, and they gave me an especially powerful gift when they made me a Spell Traveler. Now if only I could use it properly without randomly teleporting, falling, and inevitably crashing into important people!

As the youngest member of the renowned Harlow family, I, Brianne Marie Harlow, have some big shoes to fill. With amazing parents on the magic council and a sister who works for Witchling Star Agency, I’m determined to prove that I can meet the expectations of our family name. 

I hope.

Getting accepted into Witchling Academy isn't the problem, given my gift. But surviving in a school filled with witches and warlocks? That is a whole other dilemma. My game plan? Focus on learning, do my homework, and speak to no one - except for my best friend, Elijah, who I secretly have a crush on. 

What could go wrong? Turns out, everything.

On the first day of classes, I managed to piss off the leader of the Notorious Four, a group of hot boys with their eyes all on me. As if that weren’t bad enough, now I’m getting death threats and random men are chasing me after school, trying to steal my power. 

Now I only have two goals. One, survive long enough to graduate and make my family proud. With craziness and danger coming at me left and right, it's up to me and Elijah - with the help of N4 - to find a way to make it out alive.

Goal number two? Manage not to fall in love with all five boys in the process.

Hated the narrator

This may have been ok with another narrator, but I couldn’t stand this one. The male voices were horrible and the dialogue tags were all wrong.
The story was ok, but I found the innocence of the FMC to be completely unbelievable. For someone who reads all the time and can memorise and retain info after reading it once, I fail to see how she has never heard of “hooking up” or any of the various other things she didn’t understand.

Great Academy story

I’ve really enjoyed Brianne and her misadventures due to her uncontrolled spell traveling ability. She is sweet and timid which makes people think she’s a rug sometimes but push her too far and you will find she can and will take care of herself. The narration on this was just ok I really disliked it at the beginning but it grew on me as I went. Still totally worth it.

Witchling Academy

Enjoyed this first book of this series. Liked getting to know all the characters. Brianna May be young and inexperienced but her she is smart and determined. The more I got to know the notorious 4 the more I like each one. Look forward to the next book.

Great book with great narration

While this is the first book I read by Avery Song, I have already read quite a few series written under her other name Yumoyori Wilson. I love most of her books and it's no surprise that I loved Witchling Academy. I love the fact she also releases books on audible now, which is a big plus for me. Listening + chores = win-win! The narrator did a great job!
___

Brianne is a young, gifted witchling accepted at Witchling Academy at a younger age then most. Together with her best friend and secret crush Elijah she goes to the Academy where she meets Jax, Kaito, Connor and Finnick aka the Notorious Four. While their reputation implies otherwise, they are very protective and kind guys, who immediately take a liking to Brianne. This, however, doesn't sit well with Elijah, who slowly distances himself from Brianne.
___

I liked the characters a lot. Brianne is very smart when it comes to studying, but naive and slower when it comes to matters of life. A contradiction that sometimes feels weird, but is explained by the fact she is younger and grew up with only Elijah as a friend, studying magic most of the time.
___

The world is set, the characters are introduced and we get the academy feel with the typical bullies etc.
I can't wait to learn more of the MC's background stories!

Annoyed

I hate that so many books on here only have one book here, but have like 5 in the series. It's a total buz kill when I can't go to the next book in the series because it isn't available on audible. I dont have time to read the books while I'm at work, so I really like that I can listen to them.

Fantastic new series you won’t want to miss!

Witchling Academy

What happens when you and your BFF are both accepted into the top Witchling Academy? Should be the beginning of a wonderful year, but instead of the fantasy that Brianne Marie Harlow looked forward to, her dreams start crumbling before her eyes.

Between her friends betrayal and multiple death threats, Brianne shows that she is strong enough to step out of the shadows and embrace the magic and new friendships that she now has.

Brianne knows that if she wants to move forward she must make some hard choices, but will she pick the friend she’s known since she was young? Or will she move forward with those who are willing to accept her and her oddities as she is?

Pick up this book now, and be prepared to read it all in one sitting....this is a fantastic book you won’t want to miss!

I really enjoyed this cute introduction to a new magic filled world. This story had me cheering for the main character as she grew into these new relationships and her own maturity. Can’t wait for the second book!

Naive Witch & The Notorious Four

This was a really great start to The Spell Traveler Chronicles! Brianne Harlow has some big shoes to fill in the magical world. After being accepted into Witchling Academy, all she wants to do is study, make passing grades, and stay to herself, keep out of everyone’s way. Of course, that’s all easier said than done because she manages to run into Jax, the leader of the Notorious Four, has guys chasing her around school, horrible rumors are being spread about her, and she’s receiving death threats from people who want her power. Bri is a little naive, but since she’s actually only sixteen, it makes since. She’s a complete bookworm, totally clueless when it comes to boys, and doesn’t have much experience or knowledge of the world she actually lives in and the danger it holds. The Notorious Four, Connor, Finnick, Jax, and Kaito, have a bad reputation at the school, have rare abilities, and end up taking Bri under the wing. I liked watching the relationships she had with each guy in the Notorious Four form and they were all very protective of her and stuck with her through everything that she went through. We learn most about Brianne and Jax within this book and I hope we learn more about the world and the rest of her harem in future installments. Elijah, her best friend, was honestly such a disappointment and let down throughout the story for all of the history that they had. I enjoyed that this book was more about different powers than different races like most academy book and I loved learning about each one.
Lucy did a really good job with this narration! She gave each character their own voice, but I feel like some of the male voices were a little hard to listen to. Her performance portrayed all of the emotions well, especially Brianne’s, and brought each character’s personality to life.

Witchling Academy

This was a first book for me by Avery Song. It was well written but a bit slow paced. This is a YA book about a witch named Brianne she is attending academy 2 years before she should, has little control of her powers, and comes from a well known magic family with hopes to fill the shoes she follows. She is sweet and innocent (if not a bit naive and over protected) and trying to figure her way around her new peers.

This is a second audio performance by Lacy Laurel that i've had the chance to listen to and I enjoyed it very much, looking forward to other audios by her.

YA, Young Love and Younger Witch

This is a Young Adult story about a teen finding herself a little dorky among peer pressures of school, a surname she lives in the shadows of family members, and a gift she doesn't quite have control of. This book started a little slow for me, but as soon as I teleported in...or should I say spell traveled into the characters and valuable life lessons Brianne learns who her friends really are.

Brianne's innocence is relatable when discovering yourself as a teen at any age, and she makes you want to be apart of her "leave it to Beaver" family.

Albeit rooming with the Notorious 4, a group of hot guys who all the girls want in school is odd for some family norms, it seems to be ok in Brianne's world until rumours begin to fly and on top of it, she getting death threats; no thanks to her old BFF Elijah who has turned his back on her.

I really enjoyed this story and Lacy Laurel does a fantastic job bringing angst, worry, and empathy in her voice to each of the characters. Book one has a cliff hanger and the only reason why I gave "Story 4 stars" is because it's a cliff hanger and there are 6 other books after this one but none on audio :( I hope the others come out on audio soon.

Has potential but seems a bit lacking

The main character, Brianne, is young and ahead of her magic peers, allowing her into the academy two years earlier than most. She is portrayed as innocent, but comes across as more oblivious when it comes to relationships/sexual situations. I would have enjoyed learning more about the characters; I felt the story itself was a bit slow. Note: There are several other books in the series, so maybe these things resolve themselves there.

Lacy Laurel narrated the story well.

Spell traveling story

This was a really good story, with a sweet, innocent main character.
Brianne is 2 years ahead of her peers, and just so adorably innocent! I really liked her as a character, and especially enjoyed, when she gave as good as she got (and more), when pushed!

I maybe would have wished to see the classes a bit, and not just their spare time, but hope it comes in the next book, since this semester was just theory and history, whereas next semester is magic!

But overall really looking forward to see the next chapter in Brianne's story!

Amazing Story & Listen🎧 Fascinating & Magical!

I loved everything about this book, it is well written and enjoyable from start to end. Avery Song created an imaginative world with equally imaginative characters who have magical abilities. The storylines are original and fascinating, they held my interest and had me wanting to know more about the characters and the world they lived in. Brianne, a 16 year old witchling, a witch in training, was accepted into the prestige “Witchling Academy” at her young age. Her best friend Elijah was accepted as well. Brianne planned on keeping to herself, hanging with her best friend and learn to control her powers. But not all goes as planned, besides a few magical mishaps she finds she is assigned to the same dorm as the “Notorious Four”, four of the most popular guys on campus. Remaining low key is not an option for her. I adore Brianne, her ability to adapt to any situation and her strength to stand up for herself. I also adore the four guys, each are their own person and each has their own strengths and powers. I liked how they connected with Brianne, maybe not all at first but there is definitely a start to a great friendship and possibly more in the future. I am not sure which of the N4 I like the best yet, Jax, Kaito, Connor or Finnick. I did love Finnick’s crush theory and am looking forward to see where it all leads. I am also looking forward to see what the 2nd semester brings, more magic, action, twists, suspense and possibly romance? In addition to the primary characters there are some great secondary characters including Starlight, Brianne’s sister, she is amazing and I hope to see more of her down the road. I highly recommend this great story, it is entertaining and takes you to the edge of your seat at times.

I listened to the Audible edition, Lacy Laurel is a wonderful narrator and voice performer. She brought these characters to life, gave each their own distinct voice and personality. She did a great job projecting the emotions of the character and the drama of the story in to her performance. She is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you or another awesome listen🎧
