Publisher's Summary

Magic is unpredictable.  

I should know. It got me in hot water with four sexy sorcerers last semester. 

This semester, I’ve got my hands full, but things are looking up. My weapon is now my biggest supporter, even if she likes to go rogue and has her own ideas about what I need in every situation. My friends are by my side, and the Bellas are under my thumb now that they owe me. Even Rocco’s tolerable. 

But when I find out my dad has taken over my contract with my evil boss, I’m not about to let him go without a fight. 

Because of my unique abilities, I’m required to stay at the Academy of Sorcery until I learn to harness and control my magic. But with Cleo by my side and the three most powerful sorcerers on campus backing me up, I know I can save my dad even from afar. 

At least, I think the guys have my back. 

When disaster strikes, I don’t know who I can trust. Ryker’s still set on making my life hell, the Bellas probably want me dead, and even my friends have betrayed me before. Then there’s the mysterious new dark arts teacher on campus. There's only one way to find out the truth. 

It’s time to turn up the magic. 

Good thing my professor knows exactly how to handle it.

Enjoyed thoroughly!

I absolutely enjoyed this book. The characters are very developed and their interactions are at times enough for me to start giggling out loud. We find out quite a bit about the FMC and the men around her. Her adoration for the spork is comical. I really can't wait for the next one. Would I listen to this book again? Yes Would I recommend this book to others? Yes, the entire series if it keeps up with the first 2. I would also make sure that they know it should be 18+.

Great Read

Term 2, Fallen Master (Academy of Sorcery #2) was a great read by Alexa B. James. Jade’s magic has gotten her in hot water with four sexy sorcerers last semester. Her weapon is now her biggest supporter, even though she likes to go rogue sometimes. Everything is looking to go well for Jade, until she finds out that her dad has taken over her contract with her evil boss. Jade is required to stay at the Academy of Sorcery until she can learn to control her magic. I enjoyed reading this book and can’t wait to read more by the author.

year two

The second book picks up as the new school year is about to begin, and Jade just wants to fly under the radar. It's a nice dream and all, but not gonna happen. She's still confused about her magic and the guys and who to trust.
I listen to the audiobook and the narrator does an amazing job. I look forward to the next one to see what happens

Good continuation

There's a weird timeline thing at the beginning so it doesn't pick up right where it left off but we get a recap so catch us up. There are a few little inconsistencies and honestly I think the narrator sounded too old for the MC but overall she did a good job and it was a fairly quick and entertaining listen.

Great Addition to the Series!

This is the second term in the Academy of Sorcery Series, a RH Paranormal Romance. The story continues where the first book left off. You have to listen to this Series in order. Jade is a fantastic character, strong, sassy, and smart. Her three powerful sorcerers guards, Rocco, Thorn, and Ryker, and the Professor Darius are handsome, protective, and intriguing. I like their slow burn romance. Asher is an amazing supporting character. The storyline is intricate, original, fun, entertaining, and intriguing. Marnye Young did a fantastic job with the narration. This is a good addition to the Series. Looking forward to listen to Shadow Magic, the next book in the Series.

Listen to these books in order

After listening to this book I did enjoy the narrator's voice. The plot was good but you do need to listen or read the first one to understand what is going on. I didn't care for the main character and I guess I didn't understand why she needs sex to replenish her magic?
I would recommend reading or listening to these books in order!

Fallen Master

This was an alright second book. I’m hoping the third one picks up more. It was good but there were some moments where it felt a little lacking and I wanted to smack the main character a few times so she would stand up for things a bit more. The characters are definitely fully developed which I enjoyed and made them feel even more real. I do love how sassy Jade is and I want way more of that. I definitely want to know what’s going to happen in the next book and am looking forward to see what Jade does next. Things are also starting to heat up and pick up with the romance. The action is good and keeps the story interesting. Very eager for the next book!

Magic, action, romance and a bit of steam

I enjoyed this entertaining second book in the series. It continues from where book one left off and has surprises, action and slow burn romance in it too. Jade is still getting use to her abilities and status, she is as sassy as ever and is starting to come to terms with her feelings for the guys and the nature of her powers. The narration is well done, characters have individual voices and the narration adds to the enjoyment of the story. This book has plenty of emotion, angst and magic, it is an enjoyable academy story with some steaminess, hints of reverse harem and an unexpected villain.

Unique but interesting!

Book continues this very unique but great story! It is still weird to have such old sounding guys that aren’t supposed to be that old so I did lower the star rating on the performance for that reason but the story is beyond worth it!!

Potentially Great Story

I really want to say that I like this book, because there are so many amazing things about it like the hot guys, the steamy chemistry, all the magic and the basic backstory.

BUT... And unfortunately there's a big but, it just doesn't really work as good as it could have. I constantly found myself frustrated with the heroines actions, the many plot holes and most importantly all the pieces that just didn't make sense, like one minute she's totally scared about her missing dad but then she's laughing and obsessed with the sexy guys again with absolutely no thought to her dad.

There were so many times where I was really excited to see what happened after a story development where it would have made perfect sense for the author to show a deeper insight into the characters by going into what they think and what happens the next day or even just 10 minutes after, but unfortunately she often jumped several weeks ahead, which just left me frustrated and annoyed as well as disappointed never to go any deeper.

I don't feel like I ever really got to know any of the characters besides a few superficial descriptions, and often their actions made absolutely no sense.

It's just such a shame because in spite of all that, this story has so much potential. It was incredibly entertaining at places, very steamy, such an amazing story and had every chance of being a great bestseller. Just too bad that the execution was so superficial and disappointing. I don't think I will want to read anything else by this author.

A steamy, fantasy.

After listening to the audiobook version of Fallen Master i feel that, on the whole it is well done but I would prefer there to be a clearer distinction between the characters voices.
I am really enjoying the plot that runs through the series and the individual one within this book. This is a reverse harem, so it is very steamy but woven well through the story.

Wonderful

This is such an enjoyable and easy to listen to book. I love the chemistry between the characters with the love/hate relationships so well written keeping you in suspense. This is building into an reverse harem series but, it has a super exciting storyline with lots of twists which keeps you gripped from the beginning. The narrator is brilliant and easy to listen to. I look forward to book 3 :)

The story is getting better and Cleo is the best

Ok I'll start with Cleo, you know, the spork!! She is just the life of the party. She has a mind of its own and dam that thing is out for blood. She does whatever she feels like but looking closely, you see that it is all to protect Jade. Also, this leads to a lot of fun 🤣

Now to Jade and the boys. OMG I was dying for it! I craved it and it happened. I mean she got her first pick and she told them all that she wanted them, quicking yhe RH part of the story and oh gosh I can see Ryker's face from a mile, still trying to resist her but failing 🤭 which give is a loooot of hot moments 🔥🔥🔥. And Rocco, the sweet one and Thorn the protective one, and Darius the wise one... I'm eagerly waiting for book 3 to see how they will all cave in.

Last but not least, the backstory: I like it that there was a twist in who the villain is and to also see that Jade is driven by love. And for once, you will love to hate the Bellas more because these girls won't stop at nothing to get to Jades men but hey as I said we are thankfull for Cleo.

Fallen Master

I really enjoyed this book. Jade is still trying to learn her special magic. She is also trying to figure out her feelings about four different guys. Her father goes missing and she is willing to do anything to find him. This book ends on a small cliffhanger. Can’t wait to see what happens next term.

What an amazing continuation

This one is just fantastic, I love how she’s really coming into her own and learning who she is with her magic now. The relationship she has with each of the boys is always enjoyable for me and I love that she got to put the Bellas in their place. Absolutely fantastic

Excellent 2nd book.

I received this book free for an honest review.

Jade is learning to control her magic with the help of Cleo her spork , she is still protected by the guys she loves to hate .
After the Bellas stole her magic and made her guys want them she is biding her time on how she’s going to seek revenge.
Her Dad is still a worry for her even more so after he takes over her contract with the evil Silas who is using her Dad to get to her. Really enjoyed listening and seeing how the characters are growing and can’t wait for the next book.

A steamy, magical read

I really enjoyed this book, it had a great plot, characters and very steamy, I finished it in one sitting. I really enjoyed Jade getting the better of the Bellas, and the sorcerer Silas was the perfect villain to love to hate. I can't wait for the next book, this series is addictive and definately one I want to follow. I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
