Blurb:

Once upon a time a wolf took everything away from me.
I’m here to return the favor…

When the Big Bad Wolf and his pack of witch hunters murdered my family, I made a deal with the Devil in exchange for revenge.

Giving him my soul was the easy part.

Surviving Everafter Academy… now that deserves a medal.

I’m not the Red Riding Hood everyone thinks I am. I’m Ravyn, the witch with a deep, dark secret, and I’m only at this school to hunt down my family’s killer. If pretty boys Erik, Christopher, and Gideon think they can make my life hell just because I’m different, they’re in for a surprise.

I’m going to make these Prince Charmings regret the day they ever wronged me.

Everything I do is chaos. Everything I touch turns to darkness. They can call me a monster because that’s exactly what I am.

My heart isn’t meant to be won over or broken. It’s meant to be feared.

With a trio of jealous princesses determined to put a hex on me, a magical school full of ‘good’ fairy tale creatures that despise my kind, secrets galore, and a headmaster whose dark desires rival my own, I’m here to prove that even villains deserve their happily ever after.

Mine just involves bloodshed, blackmail, and sweet sinister revenge.

What can I say? I’m a Dark Witch. It’s in my nature.

Now sit back and let me tell you how fairytales REALLY go. It all starts with an altar…

Everafter Academy is a Dark Reverse Harem Romance. Each fairytale creature has been modernized and thrown into a world of magic, depravity, and allure, and Ravyn will never choose which path—or man—she truly wants. Why choose when she can have them all?

Themes: bully, forbidden romance, student/teacher, D/s relationship
Genres: reverse harem, academy, fantasy, fairytale
Heat Level: Scorching-hot, rough, consensual scenes that are for 18+ only.

I probably enjoyed this book more than I should…

I decided I try something new this time. I like a good reverse harem, plus this is a fairy tale re-invention. What could go wrong?

Well, this is a typical teenage-drama-book. Or is it? Ravyn has a twin sister, who gets accepted for Everafter. The school for princes, princesses, all the good from those old fairy tales you always hear. While Ravyn has to go to Nevermore where happy endings are not happening, true love is a phrase nobody knows and villains thrive. The only problem with this, Ravyn does not want to get separated from her twin sister, so she does the unimaginable. Switches sides.

Then tragedy strikes immediately, and the aftermath leaves Ravyn angry, grieving and thirsty for revenge. Backed up by her dark lord, will she be able to find the killers especially when so many distractions are present? Evermore is not what you expect. Even princes and princesses have their darkness, nobody and nothing is what it seems.
I liked Red’s character, I liked Sirena and Alice, the outcasts and was a little bit pleased to see the stuck-up fairy tale heroes and heroines are also proud, bitchy and mainly not-so-perfect bullies. After the twist at the end of the book I am curious how this one turns out. I also loved Ravyn’s no-nonsense attitude.

The characters are good, the world building exceptional and the story is intriguing. A nice, easy dark tale. If you are on the look for something sinisterly fun then search no more.

God save my soul! Or rather not.
