Rials I get trying to weed out the best of the best for school but so much of what is going on doesn t make sense And what is so great about this school that kids are willing to DIE to get into I m ust a little lost I keep reading the synopsis for book 1 and going to the author pages to see if this is a spin off and I ust haven t read the series with all the explanations but nope It is what it is I m already two books in I might as well keep reading I hope Ethan will get his ass handed to him in the next one that might make it to him in the next one that might make it worthwhile A Pulse Pounding 45 Stars Holy moley the tension goes up down like a yo yo in this book I needed meds for my blood pressure an inhaler for catching my breath Wild her crew are thrown back into the thick of the Culling Trials from the get go Ethan is his typical douche canoe self full of self importance out to win 45 Douche Canoe StarsThe book ust goes too fast and it s over before I even know it and it leaves me wanting and I don t think I can wait another month to find out what happens with the next trials and what is going on with Rory Wild Ethan and the re 1 The Culling Trials 2 The Culling Trials 2 3 The Culling Trials 3 I m so confused Will there be than 3 books in the series Because there is absolutely no way Breene Mayer can bring this to a satisfying ending with only one book There are too many unanswered uestions so they re either going to rush the answers or continue with the seriesThe trials were really boring and predictable I mean it wasn t like the team Spots Fun with Friends just breezed through them there was lots of action involved but I already knew that Wild would succeed in everything she does so there wasn t much fun in reading about that This probably won t go over very well but as a character Wild is kinda bland As I said in book 1 she sust too perfect and now we discover that she s even There is nothing that really stands out to me and makes me really really like herThe secondary characters though are awesome I even started to like Ethan a tiny little bit He annoyed the heck out of me but now that I think about it Ethan is probably the character that I m looking forward to the most ARC generously provided in exchange for an honest review I enjoyed this book but for the life of me I don t understand what is going on The writing is great you keep reading and reading until the very end when you realize there is no plot line The only thing that I know is that there is some sort of trials and that s it there s trials and that s it There s reason given for this trial there s no explanation of what Wild is why anyone is after her or what happened to her brother Having these uestions unanswered in book 1 is understandable but having these uestions still after reading book 2 is ridiculous Hopefully everything can be sorted in book threeGiving it 4 stars despite my misgivings because I really like Wild a bit of a know it all but she was badas. Tions They clearly think we’re idiots I got this far by trusting my instincts and I’m not going to back down now Those kids won’t be left to die Not on my watch Shadowspell Academy Book 1 and Shadowspell Academy Book 2 end with a cliffhanger Book 3 will release June 11 20.

BreeneContinuing on from Pete getting an eyeful Wild being a girl is the worst kept secret going Sunshine has lost his appeal and feels like a bad guy creeper Rory well I m hoping Wild s lie detector is accurate Ethan is growing on me although he did need bricking at the start The rest of the crew is steady as ever and I like the whole family vibe going on Gonna say Pete is my favourite but then you ve got cool calm Orin stalking the shadows Favourite part was revenge for Wally The story is still going strong with trials a little mystery secrets and mayhem Ends on another cliffhanger and again a little short Still onwards to the next one I m really enjoying this series This book picks right up where it left off in the first book This book is a combination of Harry Potter meets hunger games 35 stars Somewhere here in book 2 I started really connecting with the characters of this series I m pretty sure it was right about the time a certain someone was fangirling hard core about unicorns Its like we A Kiss To Change Her Life just clicked Lol I still have the same problems here in book 2 as I had in book 1 There isust no world building in general though the scenes are built Their Convenient Amish Marriage (Pinecraft Homecomings just fine The reader isust barely given any information to semi accurately make some assumptions but nothing is set in stone and its not all uite adding up but It was a fun wild ride pun intended Wild and her team head onward to challenge 2 which plays to Gregory s strengths as a goblin Unfortunately douche bag entitled erk wad attempts to commandeer the mission and almost gets everyone killed with his Freaking Cheat Sheet Only cheat sheet Only Wild and her other team mates leave no man behind do they make it out of the challenge with all their team mates and with Gregory as the star of the show Initiates are being kidnapped however and Gregory becomes a victim right along with douche bags cheat sheets Now they are on their own for the next challenge the beast challenge Something odd is going on with Wild though slowly but surely her powers are displaying and seem to change based on the situation Only one other person had demonstrated All The House Powers the house powers she needs to stay under the radar Her team may know her secret but she still needs to keep her brother safe If that wasn t enough there is an assassin on the grounds ust waiting on the moment to pluck wild offThe characters have developed a funny sarcastic camaraderie that I m super digging here in book 2 I m excited to see where the ride takes us next Hopefully we will start getting some answers soon The Culling Trials book 2 picks up Wild s story immediately after the ending of the first instalment so please be aware there will be spoilers for the first book in this review It s turning into a really fun series though so you should definitely check it out if you haven t alreadyPicking up immediately from where we left off Pete has ust walked into the bathroom an. You Don’t Choose The Academy The Academy Chooses You Being accepted into an elite school of magic monsters and assassins was not my idea of higher education But here I am fighting my way through the Culling Trials to claim my right to be taught As if the gauntlet type physica. D discovered that Wild is a girl Although he a little trouble getting past the whole boob thing before he can even think about how her
SECRET COULD AFFECT THE WHOLE GROUPcould affect the whole group she s discovered There is a very good reason that Wild has been hiding her true identity and her whole family will be in danger if anyone finds out who she really is so she s got to place a lot of trust in Pete to keep her secretI m actually really enjoying seeing the friendship grow between Wild Pete Wally Orin and Gregory they re all from totally different backgrounds and have very different skills but there seems to be a genuine bond between them You ll notice that I m not counting Ethan in that grouping but he s a whole different kettle of fish and it s going to take a lot of work before I ll start trusting himWild s secret is actually the least of their problem as the culling trials continue There is danger from every direction and even working together is no guarantee of success but if they don t make it through Wild will never discover what happened to her older brother or why they tried to recruit Billy She also needs to get to the bottom of whats going on with her childhood friend Rory he s been holding out on her for a long time and it s clear he has information she needs if she s going to survive this experienceI love how fast paced these stories are lots of action and fun as they work through the trials but also a strong group of characters who are becoming fast friends There are secrets galore that I can t wait to uncover and I m ust glad we don t have to wait long for the next book 134 x longer than book 1 2 x house trials A Honey Badgering good time Book 1 Book 2 Wild has the worst kept secret in the whole of the Academy so this lost the Mulan thing book 1 had going on Which I kind of missed But her rag tag team of misfits are still hilarious and all interesting characters in their own right The honey badger The cheater cheater pumpkin eater The status seeking Vampire Where s Wally and The Goblin Little of the Sandman would have been nice and I m not sold on Rory yet but wow I m loving this Academy series The trials are really creative and I was surprised to find two house trials in the book I thought for sure it was going to be one trail per book but hey I m not complaining It s nearly all action and no romance so for me to like it this much is saying somethingIf you need an extra incentive to start this series then how about this Wild and her group continues to face the Culling Trials each one geared to a different House It becomes clear that someone is trying to kill Wild as Their Trials Are Much Difficult trials are much difficult other groups There are also kids going missing but everyone is distracted when Wild s big secret gets outI thought this one was a bit better than the first book Yet I m still frustrated with the ambiguity of what the hell is the purpose of the L and mental tests aren’t enough people are going missing People that are my friends In a dangerous world where no one is as they seem the golden rule is simple Trust no one They think we should Divine ecstasy, the story of Khajuraho just look out for ourselves That we should leave the fallen behind and ask no ues.
