Summary

I can speak to demons. The punishment is death.

The mission: Put on a dress, pretend to be a lady, and infiltrate the academy of mages to steal a journal from the forbidden archives.

The problem: I’m no mage and I’ve never worn a dress in my life.

But it’s not like I have a choice. My bastard of an uncle basically sold me to a dangerously pretty nobleman, and they can’t pull off this heist without me. Unfortunately, once I fake my way through the entrance exam with a piece of hacked mage tech, and reach the floating kingdom of Reverie, my problems are only just beginning.

Keeping my secret identity is hard enough without a suspicious prince following me around, and the jealous rich girl who wants to marry him threatening me at every turn. But I know I’m in real trouble when my magic sword starts to talk to me. If I can survive the demon attacks, the backstabbing nobles, and the piles of homework long enough, I may discover the source of magic…and if the truth gets out, it will shatter everything.

The Academy of Falling Kingdoms series is a young adult fantasy adventure full of monsters, murder, and romantic intrigue. Fans who enjoyed Rachel Carter’s Black Mage series and Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy will love this sprawling magic academy!

Books included in this series: 

Book 1: The Source of Magic

Good listen

I struggled with the narrators accent she gave the characters at first but persevered and overcame this. Good story line right up my street. Demons and magic and first book for ages with no over lengthy love scenes. I like the action and intrigue.

Good but could be better

The book overall was good, some of it very predictable and some good twists. I found it quite slow in parts but overall a good book, narration was good.

A MUST READ

I read the reviews awhile back and was hesitant but glad I gave gave it a chance .This is a great series that is worth the credit; took two days to finish.

This book has adventure family love redemption and sacrifices. Thank you Carrie Coello for a wonderful performance. Carrie made the book even better with the different voices. I could distinguish the different characters with Carrie with different voices.

My favorite part of the book is when Alexander the stuck up Prince wind up in a place that he's not used to and he acts like a little princess LOL.

my favorite character out of the whole book is Lucius. He is funny patient and love to set people on fire and I find out and book two the reason why you like to sit everything and everybody on fire.

Overall this was a great series from the beginning to the end. I recommend this book to anybody who wants a break from vampires and Faye to read.

Well worth listening to.

I didn't think I would be so enthralled by this story. It was really good. The reader did a superb job. The twists and tangles kept you interested. Really worth the listen.

Okay

So I felt like the Winter was always thinking about how everything was her fault. I also felt like the relationship with Winter and The prince was forced at the end. Both seemed more like friends than anything. Performance was into character and it kind of sounded like I was listening to a snob read verses a girl that had it hard in life. Also I absolutely hated it when the performer said “Scraps” it just sounded so stuck up. Ending was good and I enjoyed uncle Dorian he was hilarious and so was Luscious.

Ok story.....terrible voice acting..

I feel like the story would have come across a little better if it weren't read in the way it was. I feel like I'm in freshman year English and they picked a girl to read aloud who didn't want to. Devoid of emotion. Really disliked the reading of this story.

Slightly inconsistent, but fun

There were a couple things that were confusing/inconsistent, but a fun series well worth a credit.
