Hello friends! Welcome back to Adele Is Reading.
Today I have my book review of:
Trigger Warnings: Attempted Child Abuse, Attempted Assault, Kidnapping, Torture mention, Murder, Human/Shifter Experimentation.
Secret societies. Magical boarding schools. Supernatural beings…What could go wrong?
I’m Millie Brix and apparently, I’m a supernatural shifter. Funny eighteenth birthday present, right?
Chosen for Supernatural Shifter Academy, I have to learn which shifter clan I belong to and how to use my powers that are slowly growing out of control. Supernatural Shifter Academy only has five hundred places and if I’m not strong enough to survive, I won’t get to walk away.
The Sirens lure you in, the Wolves bite first and ask questions later, the Dragons only care for themselves, the Vampires plan to own the world and the Witches will do whatever it takes to win.
I’m not going to let the academy or its students beat me, that’s for sure.
With a prince of the Vampires seducing me, a secretive Siren dead set on making me his, a gorgeous Wolf shifter who wants to claim my heart and an alpha Dragon who sees me as a prize he wants to keep… the academy is far more dangerous than it looks.
In this academy, secrets are the only thing you can trade with and I’m right in the middle of the biggest secret the academy has.
And when the truth comes out…the academy will fall.
17+ Reverse Harem Romance which means the main character will have more than one love interest. This is book one of a five-book series and will be rapidly released.
From GoodReads [x]:
“REVERSE HAREM” IS, LITERALLY, THE OPPOSITE OF “HAREM”, WITH A GROUP OF MALES CENTERING ROUND A SINGULAR FEMALE, USUALLY WITH THREE OR MORE MALES. QUITE OFTEN FOUND UNDER THE ROMANCE GENRE
Though Crescent Wolves was a gripping read (I won’t deny that!), I found the story overall to be lacklustre. CW lacked the usual pizzazz that I would’ve found in other books that ‘Bailey has (co.) written in.
One thing that stood out to me the most about Crescent Wolves is that … for a change there was no sexual scenes in this first book at all — which was completely shocking to me. I’m sure that there’ll be smutty spicy scenes throughout the other books though.
Having read Crescent Wolves, I can say that I’m curious to find out what happens in the further Shifter Academy novels. …I have no clue when I’m going to get around to finishing the series since I want to binge read the Shifter Academy story. I don’t know what it is with me lately! I just want to binge-read all the delicious books in one go.
When I got to the last page of the story, I was actually shocked that it was the end of Crescent Wolves. I wanted there to be more within this first Shifter Academy installation.
While there was a good amount of plot development, I was genuinely bored by the happenings. Crescent Wolves was an easy read, so I didn’t exactly suffer through reading the rest of the novel. Whereas I would have DNF’d it; I truly read CW because G.Bailey is a co-author of it. The slowness of Crescent Wolves didn’t appeal to me (had high hopes for the book).
I’m giving Crescent Wolves, 1 star.
Thank you for stopping by, and I hope to see you soon!
