AUTHOR BIO

J.E. & M. Keep love to combine fantasy, scifi, horror, romance and mystery into exciting and titillating novels.

They are long term, loving partners in a very happy relationship and because of this, they love to torture their characters. Dark romance touches all of their stories in one way or another, from elicit trysts to forbidden love.

Some of their work contains dubious consent and erotic pain, so it’s not for the faint of heart. Their stories are often called twisted and arousing -- at the same time.

*All work is 18+, trigger warnings available on the second page of every book. If you want to hear about new releases, sign up for the newsletter!*

My Review:
*I was provided a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

This was an entertaining read. In this story we meet Kanika, a teenage girl who is left to her own devices at the Academy. When the school becomes shut off from the rest of the world by magic and the school has an issue with sustaining itself, it seems the logical choice to start expelling the poor students to  make sure that the rich are kept safe.
Kanika learns early on that she has more to barter with than money, and she really does use this to her advantage.
It's really sad to see her create this world of sex, lies and manipulation. What I found the most troubling, was that she went from this girl who was afraid of sex to this raging nympho in the span of just a month or so.
I enjoyed the story weaving and I was able to really feel all the emotions of the characters as I read. For that reason, I gave the book a 4 star rating. The writing is that well displayed.
As far as the story line itself, I really felt let down. There are a couple of things that happen in the story that really are left hanging out there with no explanation, and with no reason that I could discern for the placement. That was disappointing to say the least, I felt this huge build up to find out what was going to happen with everyone and then it was like... it's over and here is the tail end that gives you more questions than answers.
I would love to have more in the ending. It just is. I would like to have seen more paranormal aspects. Other than we are told of a couple of things happening, and the presence of a half demon, there isn't anything paranormal in the story.
