Root Rot Academy: Term 1 
by Rhea Watson


The warlock who murdered my parents is teaching at Root Rot Academy—and now, so am I.

Once upon a time, a monster killed my parents and left me to burn in my bed.

Twenty-six years later, I finally found him.

We might have both become professors, but we are nothing alike. Benedict Hammond is a liar, a murderer, a psychopath.

And I’m the witch here to punish him.

I renamed myself after the fury Alecto years ago, and now it’s time to taste her madness—to exact my righteous revenge.

You know…

Once I figure out what that is, exactly.

But it’s coming, and nothing is going to distract me.

Not my gorgeous vampire roommate, the complete package, and totally off-limits.

Not the mysterious head librarian, a fae as intriguing as he is infuriating.

Oh, and definitely not my powerful warlock headmaster who makes me feel so deliciously small.

I’m here to collect a life debt—that’s all that matters.

And…

And…

And I’m not terrified.

Nope. Not at all.


Root Rot is an academy Why-Choose romance trilogy centered around the professors and faculty. It contains mature subject matter that might not be suitable for all readers.


Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Count on Rhea Watson to give us a Why Choose romance that should be more accurately classified as impossible to choose. This first in the trilogy gives us the scoop on why Alecto is at the Academy as well as introducing the players in this game, both good and bad. As far as love interests go, each of these guys brings something different to the table - but don't expect Alecto to actually taste them all in this first book. We do need something to look forward to, after all, and I definitely look forward to seeing more of these characters. Each character has something I like in a love interest, but Gavriel is the sexy, arrogant troublemaker that gets under your skin, and Watson lets him show just enough heart that you know he's redeemable if only he'll cooperate. Then we have the vampire with a heart of gold and great sense of humor, and the bossy warlock trying to avoid the inevitable. Of course, the romantic entanglements run side by side with a bit of suspense that's just taking shape and some trouble makers stirring up enough danger to keep us guessing. All in all, Term 1 of Root Rot Academy is a solid mix of engaging characters, wit and sarcasm, steamy goodness, and all-around great story-telling that I've come to expect from this author no matter which pen name she uses.
