Three sexy elemental mages, a shifter and a magic freak who sparks their magic in weird ways. Yeah, what could go wrong in this scenario? Welcome to the Protectors Academy!

I don’t know who I am. I don’t know how I got here. But I know if I stop running, I will never be free.

When I burst from the woods into a rush of headlights and asphalt and open night sky, I think I’ve m

First I would say read the free prequel, before you read this. We have a story that brings new ideas into this academy readings.. Sadie has been in foster car for most of her life. An outsider, who realizes she can trust no-one. Then one night at work her life changes, but is it for the good or bad? Who do you trust now? Why still and outsider in a new school? Can anyone help her?

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book!

Sadie never knew magic existed until right before she was kidnapped. Then, nothing. All her memories, gone. The next thing she knows, she’s running for her life through the forest. Professor Hotchkiss comes across her and brings her home. He’s the headmaster at an academy for mages. Until she gets her memory back, and her magic under control, she must remain there as a student.

Sadie’s character is pretty pragmatic and easy to like. Her no nonsense style when goin

Flipping freak! Nika brusts through full throttle, riding the wings of a raging inferno, lighting up the night and watching it burn, fusing this little guy together piece by jagged piece. Braided, bound and entangled, showcasing the explosive ups and agonizing downs, testing our characters in ways they could have never anticipated. Anarchy runs rampant and havoc is rife, rolling out the drama, intrigue, turmoil, spiraling suspense and intense situations, along wi

I am so glad that I gave this new author a try the book was very good! The characters are well developed and the storyline flows nicely. There were a few spots in the book that could have gone a little smoother but for a brand new author's first book, I was highly impressed. This is an RH paranormal academy story about a girl who has unusual powers, shifters, and mages. There are plenty of sexy men, fun times, and lots of twists and turns to keep you glued to the pages in this book! I am definit ...more

Sparks sure are flying!

The start of this book is a great start to a series. Our heroine is fleeing, but from what? She finds refuge, maybe? As Sadie works to remember who she is and to try to fit in at the Protectors Academy, she’s also fighting some strong urges towards some of her classmates. Can Sadie begin to uncover who she really is and learn to control her magic? Can the guys she’s meeting be any help at all?

This book is very well written. Characters are well developed and are relatable. They feel like actual people with emotion and all. It's a poor girl who had a bad life due to foster system. One night everything changes but who do you trust when meeting new people. It's academy set. Can't go wrong there. Very good. ...more

Protectors Academy!

I loved it and would recommend it! I could definitely tell that Alexis was up to no good that much was obvious. And man I wouldn’t mind being Sadie with all these strong mages. If she isn’t human what is she?!! Also is Declan and Aiden going to be apart of the “team!” I just got the second book so I hope I will find out soon haha

This was a little predictable, but surprisingly good. (Coming off a dnf so perspective might be skewed).
Our MFC is an orphan who discovers she has unusual magic. After escaping from a lab she is discovered and taken to an academy where they train kids to fight the fae. The problem with this scenario is our MFC just might be the very thing she's being trained to fight against.

This story lives me wanting more. There was a story before this one which remained murky and leaves the audience wanting to know more about the main character. The mystery of Sadie's life is slowly evolving and I'm curious to know what happened next.

Sparking Magic, the first book of the Protectors Academy series, is an ebook I downloaded from Kindle Unlimited. There were an awful lot of coincidental circumstances to move this storyline forward, but overall I enjoyed the story quite a bit.

Good but similar

If you like RH and academy this is top notch. However, it does read like another series. I would recommend and looking forward to Book 2
