Three magic academy books to try

written by Betsy Flak on 2019-09-09

Lately, I've been getting into magic academy books, which seems to be the latest hot new sub-genre within the larger fantasy space and especially within paranormal romance and urban fantasy. So, I thought I would share my three favorites with you!

A few quick disclaimers before we get into it. First off, I haven't dipped my toes into the whole reverse harem scene. I'm a "one true love" type of gal, so reverse harem hasn't struck my fancy. I'm not saying I'll never read it. It's just not high on my list. Secondly, I've only been reading the most popular titles so far. So, it is entirely possible that I'm late to the game with these picks. C'est la vie, I guess.

Oberon Academy Book One: The Orphan by Wendi Wilson

  • In a nutshell: Dark fairies have taken over the world to save the planet from climate change. But who can save humanity from the dark fairies? A young adult magic academy tale with sweet romance.
  • Series Name and Number of Books: Oberon Academy, 4 books (as of the date of this post)

Supernatural Academy: Year One by Jaymin Eve

  • In a nutshell: Twenty-two-year-old Maddison finds out she's a supernatural and is thrust into an academy with shifters, vampires, magic users, and the fey. But something's blocking her abilities and super-hot Asher wants to find out what. Recommended for 17+. More swearing and steamier than Oberon Academy.
  • Series Name and Number of Books: Supernatural Academy, 2 books (as of the date of this post)

Darkblood Academy: Book One: Half-Blood by G.K. DeRosa

  • In a nutshell: Half-human, half-witch Luna ends up at Darkblood Academy, thanks to her bio-dad pulling some strings (he's never been around). Now, she's supposed to join shifters, fae, witches, and vampires to save humanity from demons. Recommended for 16+ with steaminess increasing through the course of the series.
  • Series Name and Number of Books: Darkblood Academy, 3 books (as of the date of this post)
