Great Read

Term 3, Shadow Magic (Academy of Sorcery #3) was a great read by Alexa B. James, Catherine Rycerz. This book finds Jade's story continuing. As soon as she returns to campus, things get complicated. She finds her friends not speaking to each other. The professor she is falling for has new obligations that keep them apart. And as always, something is going on with Bella. I enjoyed reading this book and can't wait to read more by the author.

Good continuation

Jada is getting closer with her guys even if she’s keeping one a secret and a lot happens in this book. It’s not my favorite in the series but it is still a good continuation with a lot revealed. This is a good series and a lot of fun to read. It had me laughing and wanting more. I’m excited to see how these characters progress more and what’s going to happen next.

enjoyed it

This story is jam packed with action from the very beginning. Jade still has some growing up to do, but she has come along way. I was hoping for a different outcome for a certain someone, but maybe we haven't seen the last of them.
I listened to the audiobook and Marny does an amazing job with all the characters

Better continuation

I liked this one better than the 2nd. I really liked that it was more focused on the relationships and I am enjoying the overall premise of it. I honestly love the characters and like how the RH has been portrayed. There were some twists and turns I didn't expect. Overall it's a pretty entertaining and surprisingly lighter listen with a good narrator.

Better, but… 🤷🏽‍♀️

Okay, so I’ve read/listened to a few Alexa B James books (granted this is her and another author) and although the book was okay and the summary sounded good, it fell short from great for me. The story picks up where book 2 left off and had lots of drama and angst. The story also had a lot of steamy scenes between the heroine and her harem. I still am not 100 percent a fan of the heroine though. I don’t know, something about her just really annoys me… maybe it’s her age/immaturity… I don’t know.

As to the narrator, Marnye Young, she did an amazing job as always! I haven’t listened to a book read by her that wasn’t great!

Steamy!

This is the third term in the Academy of Sorcery Series, a RH Paranormal Romance. The story continues where the second term left off. You have to listen to this Series in order. Jade's adventures, along with her sorcerers guards, Rocco, Thorn, and Ryker, and the Professor Darius. The storyline is steamy, fun, and entertaining, filled with magic, intrigue, and twists and turns. The story ends with a cliffhanger, and I am looking forward to listen to the next book in the Series. Marnye Young did a fantastic job with the narration

Good Series

Overall I like the core story of this series. I really hoped Jade would mature a little more in this book but she really didn't. Her immature way of handling some issues is annoying. I know this is a RH but I think there is a sex scene in almost every chapter - it overtakes the story in my opinion - which some may prefer but I don't. The narrator does a wonderful job bringing the story to life. There is plenty of action, suspense and magic which kept my attention.

Continues to Amaze!

I loved this book best so far in the series. The 2 authors have continued to grow their talents together and I am so happy to see that growth. Marnye Young is among those narrators who surprise me with each book, but has kept the characters from earlier the same. I think that it is important for continuity and everyone has done wonderfully.
Would I listen to this book again? yes
Would I recommend this book to others? yes, as long as it meets the request .

Term 3: Shadow Magic

Jade is starting her sophomore year at Academy of Sorcery. She is learning to control her magic better. She is also bonding with her weapon better and learning to fight as one. It was hard enough to spend time with Darius due to him being a teacher but now he is being moved up. Rocco and Thorne are both okay with her needing more then one lover due to her becoming the high Priestess. The team has to stop a powerful demon before he hurts anyone else. Can't imagine what Term 4 will bring. Marnye Young did amazing job narrating this series so far.

Great

After last term and almost losing her Dad and her magic you’d think Jade would have some peace and quiet. I don’t think for one minute the powers that are out to get her aren’t going to let her and her guys off that easy .

Best book of the series

I thoroughly enjoyed the audiobook version of Shadow Magic. I enjoyed the pace and plot that had plenty of mystery and of course plenty of love action. I really hope that there are more books to come in the series as the story lends itself to more great plots. As with the other books in the series, it contains a full plot (and it's a goodun) but also has a storyline that has run through all of the books.
The narration has been fantastic in this book and maintained a high level throughout. I became more familiar with the characters voices and they felt more recognisable for me.
