Summary

A life-threatening accident reveals to Finn that he is a werewolf; the next morning, he receives an invitation to a secluded high school. Finn quickly realizes that the school is in fact an academy for monsters that is far more perilous and full of adventure than he ever expected. But Haunted High has had a dangerous history with werewolves. Can Finn survive monster politics, life-threatening pranks, and teachers more likely to kill him than help him in time to answer the real question: Who is the girl haunting the cemetery and why does he sleepwalk to her grave each night?

An Enjoyable Five Part Fantasy Tale

It’s a fast paced five part adventure that sees Finn’s werewolf genes activated by a car accident and then after he finds out from his father that his mother was also a werewolf he is taken to a school for (to use the non PC word) monsters.

On the whole I found the book entertaining and very well read by the narrator. There are the inevitable comparisons to Hogwarts that I’d imagine any book of this fantasy genre would have these days. The main character is new to the world of mythical creatures, trying to find his place and fit in, all while having a hero complex and a capacity to be in danger a lot of the time. Sound familiar?

Potter comparisons aside, the books do contain stories that will hook you in and characters who are engaging.

However, it was the narrator that bought this story to life for me. It was perfect casting, and his narrative skills pulled me into a world that it was fun to stay in for 31 hours.

If you like fantasy tales, werewolves, vampires and a whole load of other mythical people then do not let this gem of a book pass you by.

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

Great Harry Potter feel

I think this series had a great Harry Potter feel to it without being too close. I loved the battles, character growth, and relationships involved. I think this is a series that can be enjoyed by all ages

Fast paced YA urban fantasy

This was an excellent story about a school for monsters. It was action packed, fast paced and it will hold your attention the entire time. The narrator did a great job and I will definitely recommend it.

Fast Paced YA Series

Fast paced series for young adults set in a high school for monsters. These books would hold the attention of people 12 and up, the fast pace of the stories would keep the younger kids involved. The main character goes from one adventure right into the next, this five book series could easily be one large book. Very large since it's over 31 hours long but it flows that well from one book into the other. If you are a fan of urban fantasy this would be a fun series to read/listen to. The world the author creates is fun and the characters are likable. I felt that some of the actions were a bit over the top and that it was a little too fast paced but I still continued on to the end (at normal speed) which speaks for its self. Over all I was pleasantly surprised by this series. The narrator did a good job.

Let the demons hit the floor

A tragic accident throws finn into a world of conspiracies and magic. 20 years ago a terrible event caused werewolves to be outcasts... Mythics are being taken and never return.... Now Finn is trapped within all these events and must keep himself and his new friends out of danger, and save Haunted high before its too late.

Werewolves, vampires, demons, ghosts, dragons, and many other creatures make up Haunted high. Over the five books the story grows and the world will expand in a way you will want more..

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audio book by the author, narrator, or publisher, and it's my honest opinion because I read reviews as well and wanna know if a book is worth my time...

This Series Has it All!

While listening to all these books in one go is a lengthy feat, I promise it is well worth it. This is a fantastic series that has everything in a great YA saga: friendship, travels, ghosts, werewolves, snarky humor, and ever-growing characters. Oh, and dragons. Can’t have a truly epic YA without dragons.

If you’re a fan of immersive fiction like Harry Potter, this series is a must read. Or should I say listen!

Amazing Series!!

This series was fantastic and kept leaving me on the edge of my seat and constantly wanting more. These books left me feeling sad that it was over and the author did a fantastic job of leaving you with the need to pick up the next book when you had finished with the previous one. The narrator was not bad but I felt could have been better, there were a few times where it became hard to distinguish from one character to the next even though overall I felt it was a job well done. This is definitely a good read if you are into mythical species and enjoy fantasy books! "I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review."
