The thing I like about the Greenwood Academy books is the nice, well drawn characters. Mean ones don't last. Some people may get excited, one way or the other, about school girl romances but if they do, they are missing the point. The action is neither fast, nor furious but I finished Unmasked with a warm feeling about all the (almost all) girls and women. The second book followed suit.
This story is very well written and I enjoyed it greatly. That is until the ending. Considering the abuse and hardship the main character has been through I did not find the ending of more abuse and trauma from the one place she felt safe after such a long time as good and has likely put me off reading anymore of the series.
This book is great and I can't wait for the next. It is your typical academy/reverse harem (PG version) but so much better. I love when I find good fiction but even better is good fiction with lesbians as starring characters who are just normal people, sort of. It really makes it so much more fun to read than a hetero book that I need to pretend the male love interests are women in order to relate to the characters.
This was nice not as good as her other books but still happy to read the next book coming out. I’m a little bummed that the author has started a brand-new series while not finishing another there’s so many characters and cliffhangers left unfinished on her other wolves stories but it seems like we’ll never get a completed Madison wolves series.
This is an odd one, folks. I'm not even sure where to begin with this one. It takes turns being rather interesting and unrelentingly dull at the same time. The premise of the book is that the main character is this 15 year old girl who'd been living on the streets for the past four years gets picked up by the FBI because she has magic and goes out to a boarding school for magical creatures where she picks up a harem of girlfriends. And I'm like, yeah, cool, I can get down with this premise, but the interesting parts of the book are the parts that are outside of the harem premise, if you can believe that. See, one of her powers is that she can tell when somebody is lying, so the FBI want her to work for them, (and ends up doing so despite her being clearly ACAB, and also in direct violation of child labor laws) because when you're interrogating a suspect, having somebody who can ferret out the truth is very invaluable. The conflict between her clear distrust of law enforcement versus the obligation that she feels for them for getting her off the street and into the boarding school is interesting, whereas her time in the school really isn't.
And I say 'interesting' despite the book's prose being very staccato and dry. It's more like reading a series of facts that are happening, so when things don't happen much, it's kind of a slog to get through. This is an odd choice since it's all written in first person, and it kind of gives you the impression that the main character doesn't have that much in the way of personality beyond a strong distrust of authority and a desire to kiss cute girls. (I mean, same) The book also wants you to clearly know that the harem is of underage girls, and that nothing is going on beyond kissing and cradling of cheeks. (So much cheek cradling in this book OMG) And full body lamia hugs. We're not going to kinkshame here. The thing that really brings down this book is that it really felt like a series of business negotiations. A character would state a desire. The MC would make a counteroffer, making sure to use precise language. The pedantry in this book is almost overwhelming as the MC negotiates over every. single. word. At over 500 pages it's pretty tedious.
All this is somewhat surprising. I've read one of the Author's other books (Fox's Run) and it's not nearly this bad. It was a fun book to read, for the most part, but nothing really all that special to write home about. Shame, really. All in all, skip this one. ACAB. 2 stars.
This is a great story. An absolute must read that you just can't put down till you reach the very last page. I am so hooked and I can't wait for the next book in this series. Hopefully it will be released very very soon (begging on hands and knees.)
