The darkly beautiful beings that rule the western half of my world call themselves the Evermore, but we have other names for them.
Invaders. Cruel Folk. Tricksters. Sidhe. Fae.
My favourite is pointy-eared dickwads, but that’s a mouthful so I usually stick with Fae.Summer
Evermore Academy: Winter Summary
Welcome to Evermore Academy where the magic is dark, the immortals are beautiful, and being human SUCKS.
After spending my entire life avoiding the creatures that murdered my parents, one stupid mistake binds me to them for four years.
My penance? Become a human shadow at the infamous Evermore Academy, finishing school for the Seelie and Unseelie Fae courts.
All I want is to keep a low profile, but day one, I make an enemy of the most powerful Fae in the academy.
The Winter Prince is arrogant, cruel, and apparently also my Fae keeper. Meaning I’m in for months of torture.
But it only gets worse. Something dark and terrible looms over the academy. Humans are dying, ancient vendettas are resurfacing, and the courts are more bloodthirsty than ever.
What can one mortal girl do in a world full of gorgeous monsters?
Fight back with everything I have—and try not to fall in love in the process.
Evermore Academy: Winter Review
Fans of Cruel Prince, SJM and any school setting book (HP, the Scholomance series, etc.) will love this series. This series starts with a human stealing from a Fae Prince and then having to deal with her bargain with him by going to Evermore Academy for 4 years.
It’s a slow build enemies-to-lovers romance. The romance build-up was well paced and there is a lot of tension between the characters. There was no rush, and left you wanting them to hurry up and kiss (I think I actually yelled it at my tablet at one point). . The Prince is a great character. He is what you typically expect from a Fae prince; funny, sarcastic, mean, but loveable. Reminded me a lot of Rowan (ToG, SJM), Rhys (ACOTAR, SJM) and Carden (The Folk of the Air, Holly Black). The Winter Prince is hot and everything you’d want in the main male character. Summer is a fairly strong character. She can hold her own when needing to, and I didn’t find her personality unbelievable or annoying. She has sass and attitude and despite being from the “Tainted Zone” and human, she doesn’t let anyone get away with bullying her. The author does a great job at keeping the mystery and intentions of the characters well hidden and leaving you wanting to learn more about them.
I just fell in love with this book. It’s a great addition to the fantasy genre, especially in the fae fantasy genre. I think I’ll have to purchase as a paperback and start an Audrey Grey collection after looking into her other books. I know for sure I will be keep reading this series.
