    There is a difference between being strong and being rude. Yes, it requires strength to stand up for oneself and I applaud those who do. However, the MC is at the point where she just chastises/humiliates/threatens everybody she meets. There are better ways of conflict resolution. Personally, I think it is better to have the strength, wisdom and patience to pick your battles and plan how to fight them; otherwise, you are just the boy who cried wolf.

Additionally, while it wasn't directly said, she was the female dom within the romance which just does not appeal to me. And while I have your attention... there was not a lot of things that happened for the plot either. It seemed to consist mostly of filler scenes and scenes to show how "strong" and "fierce" the heroine is while still having a soft side.

There are a lot of things that I didn’t like which were making me lean towards 3 ⭐️, but at the end of the day I did read all 4 books in 2 days and will be reading the next one as soon as it is out so decided to give 4 ⭐️. The good: It is an intriguing and fairly fresh idea. I like the world the author built. The lore and world building is actually one of the main reasons I keep coming back. I want to know what happened to Farie. I want the corruption of this world to be righted. I am intrigued about all the races and their societies. All in all that aspect is very well done. I like a lot of the characters. The heroine is strong, feisty, a fighter, someone that has gone through a lot yet manages to be just and not be too dark. The harem is interesting enough, even if they need more depth. I like that from time to time one of them steps on it and issues ensue since that is an actual thing that does occur in relationships. I like that the female has a lot of the power in all of her relationships (even if it sometimes backfires in the building of the relationships). I like a lot of the side characters that are strong and supportive and overall like-able. The bad: Ok so these are the things I was not a fan of and feel some of them would have been vastly improved if the author had a good editor. Yes there are some grammar issues, but I usually don’t care about that unless they are extreme which I didn’t feel was the case here. What did bother me was the story flow. Sometimes I had to go back and reread whole sections because I didn’t understand what the author was trying to say, other times I had to reread because things just came completely out of left field and in a way that did not flow well. Also there has not been enough plot development and we are already 4 books in. Something else is that Tamsin comes across as preachy, a lot. I enjoy a good dress down as much as anyone, however when you are constantly doing it (several times per book) it comes across as preachy, and diminishes the effect. It doesn’t matter if it is other students, parents, faculty, staff, or rulers, you bet Tamsin has bitched them out. Sometimes actions speak louder than words. So no need for so much exposition and just take action. She also likes to reveal a lot of her private life and plans out in public, when it has been established that everyone’s hearing is really good and that there are a lot of spies out to get info on her. That comes across as a dumb thing to do and just poor strategy. Lastly, the sex and relationships also bothered me a bit. The sex is very female dom, which is fine, but makes it a little unbelievable. She, a college student without a lot of relationships, conquests, or a lot of sexual experience really has all these men panting after her like slaves? Ok, that is sexy for a bit if you are able to suspend your disbelief, but not the best way to build a relationship. Add in that it tends to be pretty repetitive on what she wants from them and lots of master/slave play (even if the words are not used to describe it as such) and it makes the sex scenes less sexy. As for the relationships, we are 4 books in and they still can’t decide if they are serious? As a matter of fact there is still 1 member of the harem that has not been added. How many books is this going to be? Also the end of book 4 with how things developed and were left with Craftsman was not my favorite. A lot still needs to happen and be developed in the story, characters, and relationships. The reason I gave it 4 ⭐️ in spite of having some reservations is because I WANT to know what happens next and will be looking forward to the next book. Hopefully the author gets a good editor and some of these issues get resolved.

    Good I liked this better than book 1, but I think that is because I understood the FMC better this time round. She is still an in your face kind of woman, with grit and determination aplenty, but her softer, and more humane side, is showcased here a bit more often. Also, she’s not trying to win all the battles herself, she is realizing she has allies now - and that she really needs to use them. First person, Urban fantasy. Slow burn, Academy RH. MMMF(M?)

Episodic Ending Rating = R (adult) Character age range = 19+ Pros: - deeper character development. - Friendships. - The political world is becoming clearer. - Foreshadowing is subtle, but there. - Very Interesting metaplot brewing. - Kinda glad she is holding off with Craftsman... there is something up there and get instincts are making her cautious. Cons: - Over powered FMC.. trope - The mean girl is over the top and so cliche it hurts. - Still Not fully connected to the FMC. - Some Editing errors.

    There's still nothing happening in this book and its getting old! So now we are attending all the classes and tests with the FMC. This is like watching teenage drama but without the drama. At this point I think I would take anything as long as it moves the plot along. What is frustrating is that the books have ingredients and setting for some really good story. The plot, or what I am assuming would be the plot, sounds interesting enough.

But reading about running, shopping, eating or attending classes all while everyone is awed about how powerful the FMC is, gets boring pretty quickly. I am not even going to comment on how she wants to be a saviour of everyone and every situation, in the most obnoxious way imaginable. I was still thinking of reading the next book but the author's note to book 3 says this is going to be a 25 book series. I am not that patient.

    Not as good.. Enjoyed book one but this one was a continuous repetitive diatribe of how the mc gets angry and constant thinking of overstating to out her. The mc became too sarcastic, childish, and angry for no reasons No development on romance or characters. Lost interest on this one..

    This isn't a romantic coming of age story. This is some weird wish fulfilment power fantasy. Tamsin is obnoxious in every way, shape, and form. She can't keep her mouth shut and flaunts her power when she should really try to fly under the radar. I'm surprised no one has figured out what she is yet. Fairies haven't been around for twenty years, were filthy rich, insanely power, and very beloved, yet no one even suspects that some nobody who shows up completely ignorant of the supernatural world w This isn't a romantic coming of age story. This is some weird wish fulfilment power fantasy. Tamsin is obnoxious in every way, shape, and form. She can't keep her mouth shut and flaunts her power when she should really try to fly under the radar. I'm surprised no one has figured out what she is yet. Fairies haven't been around for twenty years, were filthy rich, insanely power, and very beloved, yet no one even suspects that some nobody who shows up completely ignorant of the supernatural world with undisclosed wealth and insane power could be a lost fairy? Did everyone take oblivious pills? Her rants are extra horrid this book. If someone declared they wanted to drug and rape me, yeah, I'd tell them to fuck off and report them to the proper authorities. A simple "You're disgusting and I'm reporting you" should suffice. What I wouldn't do is give some huge monologue about how what they're doing is wrong and they're disgusting and I'll make sure they get what's coming to them because I'm so amazing. Which is what Tamsin does for every minor slight she comes across. I said in last book's review that she acts like she stepped out of r/socialjusticewarriors and this book reinforces it. She wants to take up every possible charge she can, like only she can completely reform supernatural society. Mistreatment of scholarship students? Mistreatment of hobgoblins? Archaic dragon policies? It doesn't matter if it involves her or not, Tamsin will jump in head first to make sure that her brand of justice is doled out to the evildoers. This is supposed to make her seem selfless, but for me it does the opposite. It almost seems like she's doing it to prove how benevolent and selfless she is. I mean, I doubt it's the first time some rich supes threw money around to make themselves look good. She and Hudson do this when they hold some ridiculous ice sculpting contest. I somewhat liked Craftsman in the last book and now I don't. The student/teacher relationship doesn't bother me, but their whole relationship is steeped in sexual overtones and, in some ways, I think he's using her for her power. I mean, she tries to get him out from under Edelman's thumb, and so many of her accomplishments are attributed to him because he's her mentor. And this ridiculous notion that she won't "have sex" with him until Edelman doesn't "own" him anymore makes me laugh. They're obviously having sex. It doesn't matter if he doesn't penetrate her with some old fashioned P in V action. That's an archaic way of thinking. You can't do sexual acts and claim you're not having sex because of lack of penetration. That's not how that works. Darby AND Hudson do some out of character shit just so Tamsin can be mad at them and go on a tirade. Isn't that super hot? 🙄 The exposition is pages upon pages of people explaining things to Tamsin via dialogue. It's very tiring. Holy crap, is the dirty talk cringy. "Let me eat you, my princess." Are you fucking kidding me? How is that sexy? 🤮🤮 No one says anything. It's all muttering. Does no one know how to speak at a normal volume? Basically, there's no real plot to this series. I mean, there is, but it's hardly acknowledged. Fix Faerie? Nah. Every scene is to show how ridiculously overpowered Tamsin is, how smart she is, how beautiful she is, how amazing she is, how selfless she is, how much the boys want her, and how thoroughly she can school people who don't agree with her. Boring. I won't read the next one.

    Tamsin is learning more and more about the supernatural world, and with midterms fast approaching, she's absorbing as much knowledge as she can. More people start to surround her, attracted by her personality, that she can start trusting, and even hobogoblins and fae dogs (hellhounds) make their appearances. I'm so excited to see how Tamsin will manage everything and still continue to be badass and kick asses.

    Love this series This series is great! Ran is harass and so generous to the right people. She always fights for the underdog. She is very deserving of rhetoric that happens in her life. I am waiting for the th part still. I'm extremely curious to see who she picks. I would give this book 5 stars, but it needs an edit, because the mistakes do draw you out of the story.

    Good but... The editors really need to School this author on the overuse of “blew a raspberry.” Seriously it’s distracting. Tam’s over the top chip on her shoulder also makes her kinda unlikeable at times. But I think that’s the point. To show she is flawed. Good story. Interested to see the next one. But dear God enough with the stinkin’ “blowing of raspberries.”

    I'm beginning to hate raspberries The story is good. The characters believable. My only issue is that at 19 years old,the main character, Tamisin is constantly blowing raspberries. That it's so aggravating and unbelievable. I was wondering if the author just really didn't have a word for what she pictured the character doing. Either way, if this character continues to blow raspberries, I'm going to have to find another series. I'm beginning to hate raspberries The story is good. The characters believable.

It's a total scam to sell what you know you don't have plans to finish. Seriously?! UGH!

This series was so vivid in a sense that it was full of dynamic thoughts and feelings and interactions. Aaaaand I didn’t know where to start. Ok. So how about I dedicate a shoutout to one of the most badass heroines under the reverse harem tags? I love the take-no-bs personality. I love the fiercely loyal and protective attitude.

So how about I dedicate a shoutout to one of the most badass heroines under the reverse harem tags? I love the take-no-bs personality. I love the fiercely loyal and protective attitude. Most of all, I love the generosity and the humility; the ultimate combo imo. As in THAT chick who knows how to apologize when she's wrong and admits her fault (mostly because of her ignorance to the whole new world of supernaturals and whatnot.) I love love love her. I really do. I love how the light and dark faes and all other things about Faerie were distinct from the usual image they had from most rh reads. (They were mostly portrayed as blood-thirsty monsters or sexual deviants.) Instead, they are kind, generous, thoughtful and loyal. Not that I said there weren't bad apples among them, at least not yet for now. Actually, they were thought to be debt collectors and even hinted that the 'eye for an eye' mentality came from them. Such a refreshing viewpoint, this one. Err...Istg I have a lot to say but I kind of got lost while I was thinking about Tams. But anyway. It's funny how very action-centered and insta-steam but slow in plot building this and the past book were YET I really dig them. Not my usual taste which told a lot about the series itself. So far, my fav hero was Julian. I like Hudson and Darby but they did have further to improve...and I was very much invested in how they would pave their way back to the heroine's good graces, ha!

    Sigh, book 1 was awesome but book 2 is just filled with her man problems. It doesn't make sense with Tasmin's background that she's immediately focuses on relationships, but I was willing to ignore that since, yes, this is a RH romance. But now its just annoying. There's no plot besides her getting into arguments with boy 1 and boy 2. Wanted to see more plot and more movement towards . . . whatever the end goal is here.

    Enjoyable I very much enjoyed both books, 1 & 2. While not a perfect read it was escapist fun. The FMC waa a bit of a special snowflake but I love overpowered characters so this was a positive to me. I still found some of the dialogue odd but it didn't keep me from enjoying the book. I am still intrigued by some of the males and their motivations. Can't wait for book 3! Enjoyable I very much enjoyed both books, 1 & 2. While not a perfect read it was escapist fun.

It read as a filling only, no real gain in the plot or in the relationships, and the writing is atrocious. In need of a good editing and a thousand more commas.

    Looking forward to the next book I like that each book is different in the series, not just a rehash of the first book. The characters aren't perfect and all have their own individual quirks and drives. Keeps the series very readable and can't wait for the next book.

    Really enjoying this series! First I want to note this is a review for book 1 & 2 and Secondly this review is mainly for the author :) Let me start by saying I really like the books so far and how the story is being laid out. A nice medium pace of events. I also want to note that some of the grammar in both books gave me pause as to having to work out what was meant by the sentence. It was so much that I felt like I was editing as I read—which has happened in other books I’ve read— but you might w Really enjoying this series! First I want to note this is a review for book 1 & 2 and Secondly this review is mainly for the author :) Let me start by saying I really like the books so far and how the story is being laid out. A nice medium pace of events. I also want to note that some of the grammar in both books gave me pause as to having to work out what was meant by the sentence. It was so much that I felt like I was editing as I read—which has happened in other books I’ve read— but you might want to just check on that, but over all the writing was beautiful. Also I know a lot of people might not judge a book by its cover, but let’s be real everyone has done it and I know I have for most if not half the books I’ve read. So, what I’m getting at is that I feel the cover doesn’t really match the story; not trying to give out any spoilers to future readers so I won’t give in depth detail on the juicy bits but from the cover I thought the main character was going to be siren or some paranormal along those lines. But as I was reading I figured the blue swirls around her might be portals? Not sure if that’s what you were going for but I don’t want someone to say your story is misrepresenting itself. Sorry this was long! Don’t usually right reviews that much unless I really like what I’ve read. Hope this was helpful for future books of this series that I can’t wait to read!!!

    Even though it’s telling, I’m still hooked. Seriously the book glossed over almost everything. The sex scenes are not detailed, if they are going to learn something it’s glossed over and not detailed. I just wish there was more showing. Still I’m hooked, I want to know what’s going to happen. I didn’t quite understand why she blew up so hard on Hudson, I understood the reasoning but I am not 100% sure I’d feel betrayed and that could be due to the story being told vs shown.

I didn’t quite understand why she blew up so hard on Hudson, I understood the reasoning but I am not 100% sure I’d feel betrayed and that could be due to the story being told vs shown. I think if these emotions and feelings were shown a bit more, I’d have a better connection to her emotions and such, and maybe a better understanding to the whys of it. I still don’t understand how we are in a magical school and barely see any magic. Like no one is pulling crap on her with magic. No one has tried to bully her completely. I find it completely odd that the book is about Supes but they aren’t retaliating magically. I also keep waiting for Tamsin getting kidnapped, or hurt or something crazy and none of that happens. I don’t even know what the climax of this book was. I have no idea what all it was to do, because we talked about food and planning for tons of the book. This could really benefit from more editing in terms of plot clean up. Some things are repetitive like the blowing of raspberries it’s too often. Retelling something that was just mentioned in the last few pages. Where the book ended seems odd. I didn’t feel finished. I’m still going to read them though.
