✱✱Book Review✱✱ Academy Of Beasts by Becca Fanning

USA Today Bestselling Author Becca Fanning is proud to bring you this Reverse Harem Academy Romance serial, packed with all the action, intrigue and great chemistry you can handle!


Ashes all around me, but from them we will rise.

A second year begins at the Academy, and I don't know what to make of it. Familiar faces come with familiar questions and glances, and those I can deal with.

It's the new faces that worry me. I see the same expression I had when I first showed up here a year ago. There's hope, but also fear.

And then there are the dreams...


Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐

It's the beginning of another term at the Academy, and it feels like Fiona and her guys are starting to settle in to their relationship. Of course, there's also a new mystery complete with a ghostly voice warning of trouble, a new power for Fiona, and the return of some characters who may or may not be trouble. The romance is kind of on a back burner in this one as the characters settle in and we get some refreshers on who's who here and there throughout the story. The author gives us that info organically as things progress, so if you've read every installment to this point, it's not repetitive, and if you're new, it's enough information to enjoy the story without being completely lost. A lot has happened to get here, so I'd still recommend reading from the beginning - that way, you get to meet and fall in love with the characters as they grow and develop. All in all, this 26th book in the serial is a solid start to the new year. 



I knew that I was different.

I knew that I was an other.

But I thought my new family would accept me, that they would trust me and stand by me, after everything we've gone through. But I catch whispers when my back is turned, and I feel like I'm starting all over again.

But you can either dwell on the past or focus on the future...and the future isn't done with me yet.


Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Installment 27! And the more I read of these characters, the more I want. This one has some danger to look into as well as some time with the sly Jasper. I feel like we don't get enough of Jasper, so it was nice to see a bit more of him here. We also get to see a more emotional side of Dracus, which only makes me like the dragon prince that much more. And finally, this one leaves us with the possibility of Fiona getting to take a little trip. There is still the strange voice of warning for Fiona to try to understand as well as her continually growing powers. These short installments have been great for such a stressful and busy time in my own life, and I appreciate them. They give me more of the characters I've grown to love and root for, and it's in manageable pieces that I can finish at bedtime with no problem. 


The dreams...will they ever stop? The pleasant ones are hazy, taking me back to being with my parents.

The confusing ones have me disappointing those around me and keeping secrets.

The nightmares have me in a dungeon cell, full of rage and vitriol.

But there will be time for dreams later. Right now I have a trip to the dragon kingdom to prepare for.


Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Things are getting tense for Fiona as she sorts through her feelings and her dreams. Then there's a hidden danger and a trip to the dragon kingdom with the sexy prince. And I'll just say here that I love how they travel. Each installment gives us a bit more of Fiona and her guys, and this one gives us some bear time as Fiona gets ready for her trip. Once there, she has an old threat to face plus being a comforting force for Dracus as they prepare to try the man suspected of killing his father and brother. Like I said, things are getting tense, and I can't wait to see what happens next.
