The Raven Academy could save my life… if it doesn’t kill me first.
Waitressing might pay my bills, but it’s my cage fighting at night that really cranks my gears. Until some weird hidden power helped me win a fight. Now no one wants to step in the ring with me.
And my life is going from weird to worse. The same night a werewolf tried to tear out my throat, a...more
Sounded interesting, but I disliked a majority of the characters. The guys were complete arrogant a$$hats, and even then she ended up sleeping with one (and I’m sure the other two will make the cut in the next book). The side characters were pretty blah, and they just seemed to be poor imitations of some of the other ‘academy’ series I’ve been devouring lately.

I couldn't put it down! It does leave you on a cliffhanger, but not a horrible one.
Dante, Bane, and Gareth are all trying to teach and guide Delaney on her newly formed witch powers. She is the center of a prophecy that could save or destroy the world as we know it. She is being hunted by an unknown person at the Raven Academy, where she is learning how to be a witch. There are fights, magic, and steamy encounters sprinkled throughout the book. I loved every moment of it! ...more
Our female lead Delaney is a MMA fighter, who may or may not have had alot of losses and one win. But she does not let that stop her, she just keeps going. I like that about her. I like her attitude and wit.
So far there is just one love interest but we all know there could be room for more.
The fight scenes are well written, there are plenty of laugh out loud moments, and just overall a r ...more
This book was provided by the author through Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. Thank you A. Caprice and Xpresso Book Tours!
Magic Misfit is the first book in the Raven Academy series and tells the story of Delaney and her three men, Bane, Gareth and Dante.
Magic Misfit is the first book I’ve read by A. Caprice and I liked it! The synopsis sounded really interesting and I wanted to know more about Delaney and her men. I liked the story in general and the character ...more

Clearly, I really wanted to like this book, and I did. . . to an extent. I am totally use to reading books that I absolutely love but still feel the need to roll my eyes at times throughout. And that's okay with me. Magic Misfit, however, had my eyes rolling around so often I though ...more
Magic Misfit: A Reverse Harem Academy Romance
Raven Academy, Book 1
By: A. Caprice
Narrated by: Meghan Kelly
I enjoyed this book immensely, the story grabbed my attention right from the start and captivated it to the end, leaving me interested in what is to come in the next book. A. Caprice is a gifted author with an imaginative mind, the storylines and characters she created are original and fascinating. Delaney Jones was barely making ends meet, her h ...more
This was a fun read while I'm stuck at home because of the Corona Virus. It was quick and easy with a whole lot of fantasy and that was just what I needed to read.
Writing style: The writing was decent. Nothing that blew me out of the water or anything, but not bad enough to DNF it 😂 There could have been so much more world-building and overall just more details but oh well it was okay.
Characters: I'm not attached ...more
When she arrives at the academy, she finds herself immediately attracted to her brand spanking new insta-love mates who are dedicated to keeping her safe and training her to use her powers so she can fulfil the prophecy.
The relationships are intense, but I found mysel ...more
Misfit is listed as a reverse harem, but Delaney only hooks up with one guy. She may like more than one, but she only gets intimate with one. Hence why I am not listing this as a poly romance. It has not crossed that line yet.
The fight scenes are awesome even when ...more
This is the first A Caprice book I have read and I loved it!!!... You will love Delaney right away, she's sassy, badass, with a strong will and attitude, who takes no sh&$% from no one #girlpower 💪👊⚢... She's suddlendy thrown into a magical world she didn't know about, trying to learn to use her powers while being victim of strange magical "accidents" 😳🙈... And what about that strange prophecy?, Is she really the chosen one??? 🤔🧐... With three hot alpha male sud ...more
I really liked the plot in this story a lot. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because I was totally frustrated at the absolute lack of progress with our heroine's skills.
I understand moving at a slow pace, but I am just tired of these tropes that have the MC not realizing what she is capable of until the last book. As this is a relatively small complaint, and the plotline is really good, I will continue to look forward to reading book 2 with great anticipation.
Already ha ...more
This audio caught my attention right away. The author A. Caprice wrote a great story. What I liked about it , the story didn’t take place in High School but in University. The heroine is strong not your usual school female. She’s working as an MMA fighter just a normal girl . Delaney doesn’t know that magic is around until a wearwolf attacks her . There is lots of action , fights , and twists and turns. Delaney finds out she’s a witch There are 3 men that want to protect her , ...more
Really enjoyed the author's writing style - the humour, suspense and character building was strong and kept me interested.
It was a refreshing concept to have the main heroine be a MMA fighter, it gives her a bit of snark and I would kill for confidence like hers...even if it's all bs. Delaney would definitely be a glass half full type of person. Surprisingly, we don't learn much about Delaney and her role in the prophecy as much as I would have liked. I hope we get to explore this more in the ...more
What a great start to a series. It was funny, steamy, fast paced, and extremely entertaining. I love a good reverse harem book. Especially of the paranormal variety. And while things aren't exactly cohesive on the RH front like I've seen in other books, I look forward to seeing how it will gel together in future books. More specifically if the guys can ever gel together. And it was all perfectly narrated by Meghan Kelly. I loved the different tones she had for each character and ...more
I really enjoyed this book. It was a great start to what I'm sure will be an exciting series.
I loved Delaney, the lead female character. she was the perfect mix of strength, sass and a little vulnerability.
The story kept me engaged and looks set to be very interesting.
There was a nice amount of action to keep you gripped and the three lead guys were a good mix of protective and broodyi laughed out loud so many times with this one too. The writing is so witty and fun. I just loved it.
This book had its moments, but at times it just felt hollow, like it was missing something. Despite this I still enjoyed it and will probably read the next book.
Things I liked:
- I liked that the students actually went to class and those classes had detailed descriptions
- the humor had me chuckling out loud a couple times
Things I didn't like:
- her relationships were kind of insta love, like there wasn't any build up. More telling than showing?
- there wasn't any motivation behind the big bad ...more
But yes something was very boring in the middle to the point i was skimming most of the final book. I think if the author hones in on her humor more than the serious it'll really ...more
We meet Delaney at her job who meets Bane on her way home as she's attacked by a werewolf. He then takes her to Raven academy where things go crazy. She meets Dante and Gareth while at the academy so with three hot men in her corner and her two new best friends will she survive her time at the academy. Pick up a copy and find out ...more
This was a good first book and the storyline is promising. The formatting in this book wasn’t the same as the majority of other e-books and I didn’t enjoy that. I think the storyline has promise, but I probably won’t read this first book again. I’ll read the subsequent books to find out what will happen. I’m not sure whether it was the formatting or the story that didn’t keep my interest.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Magic misfit was funny, steamy and had a decent plot. I liked the characters and there wasn't a disappointing cliffhanger. That being said I'm not jumping to read the next one. It had all the pieces I like in a RH but somehow failed to really suck me in. I'll add it to my TBR list. Hopefully the next will get me ...more
1 Star = DNF.
2 Star = Finished. Didn’t really enjoy.
3 Star = Finished. Story was neither good nor bad.
3.5 Star = Finished. Story was good. Will probably pick up next in series if there is one.
4 Star = Finished. Enjoyed story & will definitely pick up next in the series!
5 Star = Bloody LOVED it! ❤️
This is a fun read with some nice, snarky humor. I think the heroine is a nice, optimistic girl who might not be the most ambitious when it comes to school, but works hard when it comes to fighting. This is a new author, and, so far, I like what she is doing with the story.
