Publisher's Summary

Magic is real...who knew? Too bad I suck at it.

I was a freak from day one - no parents and a head of white hair that makes me stick out like a sore thumb. So, when a mystery aunt invites me to start a new life, I don’t ask questions. I board a plane. Pronto.

But surprise! *insert sarcasm* It’s all a lie, and a weird lady in a dusty junk shop basically shoves me into a closet...and I tumble into a magical world.

Which might be awesome, if I weren’t a freak there, too. Apparently, at Borealis Academy, my white hair means I’m public enemy number one.

Just my luck.

Thank the stars, they can't kick me out unless I'm unable to master magic - which, unfortunately, is even more difficult than it sounds.

One bright spot is my hot spellcasting tutor required to help up my skills. Although, he won’t give me the time of day, let alone help me pass.

But my magical problems are only just beginning, when my dark family past catches up with me. Now, if I can’t learn to master my powers, it could lead to a far worse fate than expulsion...

It could destroy everything.

Accent failure

I couldn't even concentrate on the story after the chick with the Southern accent came in because the accent was so hideous I stopped listening.

Enjoyable Story

I enjoyed The Spellcaster Academy! I really like Jenna Penner's work I loved there wasn't a triangle in this story. I did hope the best for the main character and Aspen/ I enjoyed the magic and the characters. On that note, the narrator was great giving each character their own voice. Overall, I really enjoyed this!

Amazing storyline

Tho book was not predictable but in a good way. Even though there were some cliches about " one person making a difference " you could not easily predict the action of characters which made it interesting😉🙃😄

Thumbs up!!!👍👍👍👍👍

I enjoyed Spellcaster Academy and especially being able to have the entire series. I did not want to put down this book and did quite a bit of marathon listening. This series is not like all your typical “Academy” stories. The storyline made you want to listen “just a little longer”. The characters came to life with good character development throughout the series and the narrator did a fabulous job giving each their own personality. This is an easy listening sci-fi audiobook full of magic, mystery, a talking cat, and a little (non X rated) romance. I am sure you will not be disappointed listening to this series, and will enjoy it as much as I have.

A nice enjoyable series

I enjoyed the narrator as it kept the story easy to listen too. I liked how this was 8 books but, they went rather fast to me.
I enjoyed the friendships with the magic and mayhem as this is the light hearted reads I adore. I’m 44 and I love listening to books like this and hope to find more soon!
Thank you for this wonderful series.

there are definetely moments i thought story was

inconsistent. i went through with it for entertainment of almost 70 hours for 1 credit. but she is no sanderson. character development needs work. event development too. example: she gets to ve called into a meeting wiyh directorate, they tell ger she cannot use magic. she says ok and meeting ends? such a big event and thats it? and next scene, she uses magic. then she cannot learn magic for months, but becames more powerful than anyone else? all of a sudden? teleportation and portals come out of nowhere.. she gets called by a point, gets a peptalk on she know what to do, next scene she summons the point to get the job done? and everyone ok listening to a 17 year old for some reason.

Spellbinding

The story kept me interested, invested in the storyline and characters. The twists and turns were great, ending and descriptions of their world at Spell-casters Academy. Really enjoyed it only critic is that it wasn’t long enough and could have been compressed into 2 bigger books rather than episodes. Overall fantastic story

Fantastic Book!!

This book was released monthly chapter by chapter. The final release was a compilation of all 8 chapters. I did review 6 chapters individually however I couldn't write on the last 2. So therefore I have put all reviews on here in order.

1. I really enjoyed this book from Jenetta Penner. You can really see from this first book that it is going to grab you. The characters are very likeable especially Nine, the cat!!! I am very much looking forward to the next one!!

2. This book picked up just as the last one finished. The characters are evolving, the plot is getting better and it still finishes with you wanting more. Great writing, the only negative is how quickly this is over!! Can't wait for chapter/book 3!!!

3. Third book in and this is getting better and better. Jenetta Penner is a talented writer and each chapter is brilliant. We are now totally involved in the plot and it is getting deeper and deeper! More questions are coming to light as well as others answered. I love how this story is going!! Roll on number 4!!!!

4. This chapter was fab. Albeit too short!! Learning all about Aspen’s family and a bit more about her uncle. I cannot wait to see where this goes next!! Loving it!!!

5. This was another chapter in a fantastic book. This was yet again short but the story is developing at a faster pace now and I am looking forward to reading the next one!!! Come on Jenetta write quicker!!

6. This book is fantastic, it is great how a chapter is released monthly. Once finished though, you have to wait for the next installment.... that is the hardest part!!!

7. This penultimate chapter is building up to a fantastic conclusion. The plan is formed and everyone knows what is needed to be done. It thoroughly gripped me and as soon as it finished..... I immediately reached for the final part to find out what was going to happen!!!!

8. Wow!! What a finale! It really did have everything. The twist and turns totally got me and I didn't see them coming! This was a great series and I really did enjoy each chapter being released monthly! It kept you hanging on! Great writer, great plot, great narration. Brilliant. Nothing more to say apart from.... READ IT!!!

This book was given to me for free at my request and I have provided this voluntary review
