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.

With the integration of the human and supernatural worlds, things are bound to get crazy. Luna never thought she was anything special until she meets her half-sister Kimmie-Jayne. Luna knows her from the show Hitched and can't help but fangirlling a bit. But her newfound family brings questions about Luna. She isn't just an ordinary human, but is actually a half-blood thanks to their father.

Kimmie-Jayne takes Luna to Darkhen Academy, but Luna is surprised when she discovers she's the only human. That won't stop her from trying her best though. With her super hot combat trainer, emotions become strained. Luna is drawn to Ryder, but teacher/student relationships are forbidden and Ryder still has feelings for her half-sister Kimmie-Jayne.

If fighting her feelings for Ryder wasn't hard enough, she's also caught the eye of The Seven. The Seven are each a different supernatural being and they rule the school together. Even though she isn't as strong as them, Luna won't let anyone get the best of her. Instead, she just has to work extra hard to keep up.

After reading Hitched, I immediately started this book. I love that we get to see some of our favorite guys from Hitched in this one. I was especially happy to see Ryder. Luna's character is badass and I love that she won't take crap from anyone. She's a hard worker and I can't wait to learn more about what she can do in the next book! Another five star read from G.K. DeRosa!


Final Verdict: I would recommend this book to fans of supernaturals, academy stories, action, discovering who you are, and forbidden romance.
