It was supposed to be simple. Graduate, get a job to keep my mom from drowning in mountains of medical debt, and maybe score a scholarship to a decent college.
All of that changed in a single breath. Because it turns out I’m not human. And I just knocked out the power on an entire city block.
In a split second, all of my carefully-laid plans go up in smoke. There’s no chance for college because I’m being hauled off to Kingwood Academy. They say it’s for my own protection and those around me. But I know one thing for sure…
I’m not welcome here.
The mean girls don’t stop at insults and tripping you in the halls. They’re wielding magic that could cost me my life. And the rest of the school sees me as either a halfling that should be cast out or a powerhouse to be brought down.
Everyone except them.
The charmer. The gentle giant. The psychopath. And maybe even the cruel prince.
The royals of Kingwood Academy have taken me under their wing and I can’t help but notice how my skin hums when they touch me. I shouldn’t be dreaming about a single one of them, let alone all four. But I can’t seem to stop myself.
Only someone doesn’t like the attention the royals are showing me. And when the attacks start, the princes will do anything to protect me. But they don’t know the true evil we face. The kind who will do whatever it takes to seize our power, even if that means stealing the very last breath from our lungs…
*Book one in a continuing three book reverse harem series. Think fated mates, crazy powerful elementals, a heroine with no idea what she is, protective royals, and an evil who wants all their power...
The Lost Elemental is the first book in the Royals of Kingwood Academy series by Tessa Hale. The Royals of Kingwood Academy is a reverse harem romance and is adult in nature. I really love reverse harems if the story is done well, and the Lost Elemental was fantastic. I loved the characters, I loved the setting and I really love what the world is setting up to be. I flew through this book, and I am desperate to get my hands on the next book in the series. I am excited because the books will be releasing in rapid succession, but it is just not fast enough. haha Book two comes out in October and I want it now.
In The Lost Elemental, not everyone has elemental magic. In high school humans are tested to see if they have elemental magic, and if they do and if it is strong enough they are sent to one of the magical academies for training. Untrained elementals are very dangerous. But full blooded elementals are not too fond of humans with magic because they are seen as something less than. And normally their powers are not as strong as full blooded elementals. Within the elemental community your powers can vary- the stronger you are the more elements you will have an affinity towards. Most have an affinity toward 1 or 2 elements. Very strong individuals will have the ability to control 3 elements, but 4 elements is almost unheard of. If you can control all 4 elements you are what is known as an Aether, and those have been hunted into extinction.
Aura has no idea she has any kind of power, so when she knocks out the power during her schools testing ceremony she is more than shocked. She is carted away to Kingwood Academy the most prestigious of all the elemental academies. And there she meets Atlas, Riven, Kai, and Phoenix- the four elemental princes. I loved each of the guys and I felt like I really got to know them all pretty well except for Riven. Hopefully I get to know him better in the next book, but I am super pumped to see where this story is going and I am ready for book 2. This is a great reverse harem to pick up if you love an academy setting. This book was everything I wanted and then some.
