Book Reviews for the Blakemore Paranormal Academy series

I’m a huge fan of YA paranormal/fantasy and this series did not disappoint. The books are appropriate for YA readers with no graphic sex scenes. There is some kissing and some suggestive references regarding sex but it’s PG-13 or less. My original reviews for the books are below. Enjoy!


I went from one of the most powerful supes in the world…

…to the bottom of my class at Supernatural Reform School.

The academy is for the rejects: shifters who can’t shift, witches who can’t spell, and psychs like me, who are powerless. All I want is to get my powers back online. 

Not to make friends.

Definitely not to fall for my dragon shifter instructor.

But I’m beginning to think that losing my powers was no accident. Someone is stealing magic.

As I dig deeper into this conspiracy with my fellow reform-schoolers, we uncover a lot more than we bargained for. And the tentative human/supernatural relationships hang in the balance.

We may find out the truth, how can we do anything to stop it when we don’t have our powers?

Supernatural Reform School is a YA paranormal academy / urban fantasy that will keep you reading long past midnight! It’s book one in the Blakemore Paranormal Academy trilogy. Perfect for readers who love vampires, dragon shifters, and a dash of magic all wrapped up in a gripping story!

Book 1 in the Blakemore Paranormal Academy series
Rating: 5/5

What can I say? This book is brilliant. The characters are fun and the storytelling is fresh. As someone who enjoys YA paranormal romances, this book does not disappoint! You’ll want to keep reading and possibly lose sleep (like I did). Escape into this fantastic world for a few hours! Highly recommend!

This book was available on KU and I needed to read it before I could receive an ARC of the second book so I quickly read through it.

The Academy of Stolen Magic
by Sullivan Gray & E.C. Farrell
Book 2 of the Blakemore Paranormal Academy series
Rating: 5/5

The story continues! After quickly reading the first book (via Kindle Unlimited) and then signing up for the author’s newsletter to read the short prequel, Dragon Heir, I was obviously hooked on this new series and had to read the second installment ASAP. Having lost sleep over this fast-moving series, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed reading this series. Sometimes, the first book grabs your attention and then the rest just sort of fills in the rest and ends abruptly. Not so with this second book. The action continues and I think it gets even better. More secrets are revealed and the characters get to develop and grow. I really enjoyed reading this series and highly recommend!

My thanks to the author for an ARC of the book. All opinions expressed here are entirely my own. No positive review was expected and no compensation received.

Blood of the Dragon Shifter
by Sullivan Gray & E.C. Farrell
Book 3 in the Blakemore Paranormal Academy series
Rating: 4.5/5

Such a perfect ending!!! Luckily the authors did not make me wait too long to find out the thrilling conclusion to this fun series. If you’ve ever enjoyed reading about dragons and/or dragon shifters, this book will not disappoint. There’s lots of action-packed storytelling that keeps the reader turning pages into the night. I am now a huge fan of these authors!

The saga continues as Cade and Bash figure out what they want and need to do to save the country from a war between humans and supes. Bash spirits Cade away to his clan lands for her protection and at the request of his mother. What he finds is not what he was expecting but he is determined to help his clan if he can. He will not give up his mate bond with Cade though. Cade is torn between her love for Bash and figuring out what’s happening outside the clan lands. The world is in turmoil and it’s all being led by her ex, Toby. Will Bash and Cade figure out how to save the world while still holding on to their fragile relationship? With the help of some of their friends, will Blakemore Academy be able to withstand the war that’s coming? With Cade’s powers gone, how will she find her place in all the chaos?

This adventure was so much fun to read and I can’t wait to read more about the different character spinoffs the authors have planned. I highly recommend this series which is available on KU and appropriate for YA readers. Don’t forget to read the epilogue! It’s totally worth it.
