Summary

Welcome to Darkblood - oops, I mean Darkhen Academy. 

There are three rules to survive the elite supernatural school:

  1. Do not talk or even look at The Seven, the uber-powerful supes that rule the academy.
  2. Never go into the Fae forest on a full moon...or else.
  3. And most definitely do not fall for one of the extremely hot and unattainable instructors. 

Too bad I’ve never really been a rule follower...

A year ago the supernaturals came out of the closet on primetime TV, and about a minute ago I, Luna Hallows, found out I was one of them - well, a half-blood anyway. 

So here I am at Darkhen Academy, the only human and no magical abilities to speak of. The only reason I’m here is because of my father - a man I didn’t even know existed until now. He’s crazy powerful, and they think I could be too. But what could I possibly contribute to an exclusive squad of dragon shifters, fae, witches, and vampires? 

I guess we’re about to find out because the merging of the supernatural and human realms isn’t going as smoothly as planned. If word gets out that humans are no longer safe from the supes, our worlds will once again be closed off. 

It’s up to us to stop that from happening.

This is an upper YA/NA crossover with schmexy supernatural guys and is best suited for age 16 and over. Be warned, the steaminess factor does increase through the course of the series!

Darkblood Academy is set within the world of Hitched but it's not necessary to listen to that series first to enjoy this one.

Love this

I fell in love with this, hard and fast. The storysetting is fastpaced, but still so you can keep up. And the story itself is e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g. Even though this was my first in the series, everything was explained nicely so I didn't feel lost. And the narrator did an amazing job. I would've given 6 stars if I could, it was that good!!

Magical

What a wonderful action packed YA novel that drew me in from the very beginning. The characters are beautifully written with a great plot and a few unexpected twists. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and cannot wait to read the next book. The narrator really suits the characters with clear and distinct voices for each individual.

Please tell me this gets better?!

And the character names! Straight out of a porno. 🤦‍♀️
The reviews implied this would be a great read so I’m still hanging on but cringing every time someone new is introduced.

Hmm torn on this one.

I love the storyline, and I feel sucked in. I have no idea who she will end up with or if this will be a RH. But the main female character doesn't make sense. She makes one bad decision after another, and then is shocked that it ended badly. I can't stand character like that.

Darkblood Academy is so good

Luna is unhappy with her life,about to graduate from high school and age out of the foster care system.Since paranormals are out of the closet due to the reality dating show Hitched. Luna is so curious to meet one,but it is unlikely to happen in her small town.But one day Luna has a visitor,a half sister she never knew existed,who is planning to whisk her out of the world she grew up in to take part in the supernatural. G.K.DeRosa is such an outstanding author she does not disappoint you with this book. I was on the edge of my seat throughout the whole book.Whitney Dykhouse did such an outstanding job doing the voice of Luna giving her the right amount of spunk & Determination. I highly recommend everyone to listen to this audiobook

Love this book!

I love the book so much! It’s a spin off but can definitely be enjoyed without reading the previous series. I love the characters so much! Luna finds out she’s not as human as she always thought and she also has a half sister. And now she’s thrown into a school where she has to try to make the most of her abilities and keep herself safe. I loved Luna so much! And there’s a forbidden desire for a certain demon teacher and there’s also the winter prince. I can’t wait to see what will happen next!

Suspenseful, magical with plenty of action!

A good start on a new series. Luna (our heroine) discovers she has a half sister. She learns from her half sister that their dad was a powerful warlock. She is taken to a school to help uncover any supernatural powers she may have within her and learn magic. But learning how to use these powers may not be what others want. Waiting for next book. Good narration

Can’t get behind the narrator...DNF

I really dislike the narration on this audiobook. I don’t think people should pull voices when they aren’t gifted at it. Her male voices are terrible. And I also think she stresses the wrong words in sentences. It just throws off the flow a lot for me. That’s probably just personal preference tho. Anyways, I just can’t handle the narrator so I don’t think I’ll be able to finish. Maybe will try the printed version.
