Okie dokie, here we go. Anthology time. Time to decide which authors I read for the prison trend, which to avoid and the ones that will go on my TBR for a long time.

1. Resisting her by Heather Renee
Not RH but the set up reads as one. Read from the guy’s POV and the blurb for the main book. It’s alright but nah. Cranky guy in denial. 3 stars.

2. The midnight breakout by Megan Linski & Alicia Rades.
Another one not RH. I liked the writing style and seems it would be entertaining. The couple in th

Note: I received a free soft copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Trapped by K.D Atkins is one of the short stories in this anthology. The story started with the simple goal of three wizard friends aiming to see magical creatures during Halloween, what happens after is a whirlwind of adventure that left one of them changed and threatened to be imprisoned, unless, he finds a cure- a cure that'll cause him more than what he could ever imagine.

While the story started a bit confusing

My review is for Rebel Academy Prequel by Rosemary A Johns

"Sometimes a lie was kinder than a truth, and a liar was braver than an honest man…or woman." - Fox
Born to be a trophy husband to a rich, powerful witch, Fox was both blessed and cursed with magic. He was a shimage.... The most coveted, and hated, of all magical beings. Imprisoned physically, emotionally and mentally, Fox is resigned to his fate... Until his father died...

Sent to the witch-run Rebel Academy, Fox is stunned by his recep

Read the book for The Rebel Academy series by Rosemary A Johns

Love this character. The author does amazing work. You need to check out her other work
Tassi (Read Ramble Repeat)
Just a heads up...this thread will hold multiple reviews, so it will be quite long. But the entertainment is hopefully priceless lol. I will remove the reviews and place them into the correct books once the authors have released their installments separately. Thank you for taking the time to read! ❤️

Love this collection

First off I love books like this because you get a bunch of different authors and a bunch of different books to read that give you a taste of more from them. I have found so many new authors because of this amazing collection of stories that I can't wait to read more from them.

From Ginna Moran: She gives us a little tease about how Nova's life got so complicated and a glimpse into her mom's world. This novella does a great job of explaining things that I had questions about.

The authors have put together an amazing collection of supernatural prisoner stories for us! Whether their sentences are forever or a day, every moment means life or death for paranormal prisoners as they deal with deadly secrets, mysteries, rivalries, and even love. Below is a quick review of two of the stories so you can see what is being offered!

Rosemary A. Johns is coming out with a new wickedly humorous series. A new Rebel comes to the fore named Fox. He is a shifter and a mage born into the House of Jewels. His mother locked him away because of his ability to shift for 13 years. The day of his father’s funeral, she left him at the Rebel Academy ran by witches. This coven is one of the same who keep werewolves as slaves…the Omega’s. It is to teach him how to use his powers. He has a unique ability that

For Penumbra by Cara Wylde
Wayyy to short. Just when the story started getting good it abruptly stops.... I cried. I was at a loss, because I was like wait, who, what or when. You will learn the main character's name towards the end. Alpha wolves in the story are brutes...but that's pretty typical of alpha males in all stories it seems. I was more confused in the beginning when she was picked up and in some kind of prison. Which becomes more apparent what it is as the story goes along. I honestl

My review is for Wrongfully Convicted by Wendi L. Wilson. I absolutely loved First Infraction but often found myself wondering what was going on on Asher's head. Wrongfully Convicted answered ALL of my questions and more! I loved being in Asher's mind, it opened up so much more of the story for me. I was already having a hard time waiting for the next book and now......the suspense is just driving me insane! Thank you Wendi Wilson for another AMAZING story! ...more

**Friend Or Fae**

I throughly enjoyed this little story! It gives a backstory of "Amazon Academy" and a look into "Underworld Reformatory"
I really enjoyed learning more about Shauna and her antics, and how she became a Pixie vampire!


**Patient Zero**

I really loved this short story, more stories from the "Blakemore Universe" and I can't wait to read more! I love Kalli's character and of course Kurt, the super hot vampire! More corruption, more enticing characters and storyline!

This is a most excellent and exciting boxset of supernatural prison reads written by some amazing authors.
So far I have read the captive alpha by Eva Brandt. A well written that just grabs you from the very start and you will not be able to put down whilst that vampires and shifters battle it out!
I have also read Stephany Wallace and Dark Phoenix Rising. Well written this takes you on a rollercoaster ride. It’s fiery , full of passion , heartbreak and so intense that I just cannot wait to read t

Rosemary Johns story is Rebel Academy Prequel . Fox is a Shimage ( a shifter and a mage) whose mother, a witch, placed a necklace on him to bind him from shifting and tossed him into the attic so she didn't have to deal with him. HIs father and cousin Aquilo (a mage we met in Rebel Werewolves) visit as often as they can). On the day his father is buried his mother drops him at an Academy and he hopes he'll learn to work with his powers. Things just don't go like he thought. There is a frisky wit ...more

I purchased the box set for Rosemary A Johns' book Rebel Academy Prequel. What an amazing story!! All the books were good. It has a lot of good authors. Rosemary's book was about Fox. He is a new rebel who is a shifter and a mage. His mother put him into the academy to learn how to control his power and shifting. Rosemary never disappoints, this story is awesome!!! You get snarky attitude, sexy scenes, a thrill ride that will keep you turning pages. It was really funny also. Gotta love a hot, se ...more

Conned and Convicted by CL Riley
This is a new author for me so I want sure what to expect. It started out a little confusing (may not be a good thing considering it's a short story and your MC is already confused). It was an okay story for me, but the Vampire reeducation thing occurring at summer camp was a weird setting for me. It was almost like the author was trying to great at a couple different genres - teen with the summer camp thing, adult with the 'whychoose', the 'it crowd' with the up

For a Prequel, it does its job. You want to read more.

A woman wakes up strapped to a chair naked and covered in blood and mud. She is in a room with three blank walls and the one facing her is an observation room. They keep asking her questions but she doesn't know the answer. She doesn't know her name, her pack or anything and they want answers. There is one male in a doctor's coat and one huge Alpha muther fukr that looks like security and he likes to inflict pain. If I don't answer questions

This is in regards to Penumbra (A Dark Moon Prison Prequel)

***Spoilers***

This book wasn't quite what I was expecting when I agreed to read it. It was interesting in the plot of an amnesiac women being tortured to remember what happened to her pack. If it had just been torture it would have been more interesting than adding possible rape it the mix. So many authors as using this troupe now that it is jus another over done plot point.

Review for Darkling Penitentiary: Dark Phoenix Rising by Stephany Wallace

Well this is a little different reading than what I'm use to reading for Stephany. What I mean by this is, as I was reading it sounded like an old private investigator movie. You know those ones where the investigator narrates about what he is doing or what he finds? That's what it seemed to me in my head....lol.
This story about Aros was weird but in a good way. Not sure how else to say this. It's a story about a Dark Ph

This collection of Supernatural prison stories is a fun read. I specially read two authors story and I look forward into diving into the rest of them.
Heather Renee’s story “Resisting Her” is a fabulous pre-story of her current series. I love reading from the other POV and this gives us just a taste of what Jaxon felt about the MC in the other series, Cara. “Resisting Her” is well written and will excite a new reader to her new story and is a great addition to the “Magic is the New Black” collec

This is a NON-SPOILER REVIEW. Penumbra by Cara Wylde is a prequel for her new Dark Moon Prison series. This is a dark and gritty read that kept me riveted and flipping pages. I have to say there were many cringe worthy moments when I didn't know if I could continue reading, but knew I had to because I just couldn't put it down.
