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 Last Aether is the second 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 Last Aether 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 three comes out in December and I want it now.
In The Last Aether, we pick up right where the events of book one, with the official school testing. I’m not going to spoil anything but the title of the book kind of gives it away. I love a reverse harem fantasy romance, but the plot has to be there. And Tessa Hale’s Royals of Kingwood Academy series is a great example of a series with an awesome plot, an awesome harem and awesome romance and spice. This book was a ton of fun and I am already itching for the third and final book. I loved seeing Aura and her guys again. No spoilers here but there was a big bomb dropped at the end of book one, and book two is all about the 5 of them dealing with the fallout from book one and Aura developing her abilities.
I loved how much more we get to know the guys- Atlas, Riven, Kai, and Phoenix- the four elemental princes. They really all open up to Aura in this book, and it was awesome. If you are a fan of fantasies featuring cool elemental magic, a cutthroat school setting and reverse harem romances with touch her and you die vibes, then this trilogy is a must read. I have loved the first two books and I am desperate for book 3.
