Rina Nelle Mont has never been a part of the paranormal world. Until now. Well, maybe not. The Magical Creatures Academy only accepts supernaturals, and she’s been invited to the school, but she has none of the powers she’s supposed to. Blip. Nada. Not even a spark. The school hasn’t made a mistake in a century, but she might be the first one. That’s just the kind of thing that would happen to her. Especially since no one has any idea what kind of creature she’ll be … assuming her powers ever decide to make an appearance. The Academy is the leading institution for paranormal creatures in the world. Its students are the finest of shifters, vampires, and fae. Speaking of fine fae … Leander Verion, prince of the elves, is off limits. Not only is he arrogant, stubborn, and totally not her style, he’s her brother’s best friend. She will not fall for him. No way. Besides, he’s not interested … is he? When two men who head the Shifter Alliance, a rebel faction of shapeshifters who seek to escape the control of the Enforcers—the supernatural police force—find out about Rina and her potential for a different kind of magic, they hunt her. For them, the stakes are as personal as they get. Whether she’s ready or not, Rina is about to find out what she’s made of… Night Shifter is the start of an exciting new magic-filled urban fantasy, starring a girl with lots of moxie, fine brawny shifters, BFFs with questionable morals, and pygmy trolls in need of an attitude adjustment.

The world the author has created was very varied and offered a fresh look at magical creatures. Rina was a great character, she is part of the magical community, but a lot of things are new to her, so we are seeing it for the first time through her eyes. I enjoyed reading about the academy and the trolls were amusing.
The story moved at a fast pace, a semester passes, yet we did not get to see much 'behind the scenes' and some of the character's lacked depth because of this. I wanted to know more about Rina's potential love interest for example.
This is the first book in the series however, and I would read further books in the series as I enjoyed the world portrayed and I want to know what happens to Rina and her brother Ky.
Good Points
An exciting supernatural world
A fast paced, action tale
