Book Tour + Review + #Giveaway: Bloodshed Academy by Jen L. Grey @AuthorJenLGrey @SDSXXTours

Year One
Bloodshed Academy Book 1
by Jen L. Grey
Genre: Paranormal Academy Romance 

Only the strongest survive ... most of the time

Raven may be a shifter, but she's always felt separate from her wolf. She never knew it should be different. Then, a stranger showed up in her hometown, turning her world upside down and recruiting her for the elite Bloodshed Academy.

Everything she's ever known gets challenged, and Raven found herself in impossible situations. Making matters worse was the fact that one of the strongest alphas at school caught her eye. And he made her feel things she didn't understand.

The school may only recruit the best of the best, the strongest in their world, but there was something more about Raven. When push comes to shove, she had to decide if she's willing to fight for what she's come to love ... or run from a life she couldn't quite accept.

Look, I came here and scouted you out. You’re legit even if you’re out of sync with your wolf. I’ll be back after graduation to pick you up.” He turned so his back was facing me.
You don’t know my answer, though.” What kind of school just assumed you were going to agree?
He stopped in his tracks and glanced over his shoulder. “You’ve got a lot to learn. When someone gets invited to Bloodshed, there is only one answer.” 

 Raven Wright is shapeshifter about to graduate from high school. Her life has already been laid out for her as everyone expects her to marry the alpha’s son an alpha himself.

Raven’s boyfriend Greg is awaiting an invitation to the very elite Bloodshed Academy. The recruiter is expected to show up at the school the next day. Greg being the self center person that he is so excited about going to the academy.

Raven is not too happy to be starting her life off married to the very popular Greg. Raven would like to go to Bloodshed Academy herself but has been told all her life that only alphas are allowed in and females can not be an alpha.

Raven’s parents seemed to be hiding something from her or about her. What can they be hiding? Raven has this necklace that her mother gave her and must wear at all times. What is up with this necklace?

Imagine everyone's surprise when the recruiter shows up the next day and announces that he is there for Raven and not Greg. Raven’s parents refuse to let her go but have not choice in the matter as there would be dire consequences for anyone who refused. Poor, poor Greg is mortified as he was so looking forward to attending the elite academy.

Raven and her wolf have never been one with each other but she just thought that was the way it was supposed to be until she arrived at the academy and was told other wise. Raven must learn to become one with her wolf and also how to control her shifting. The way her parents act I assume that Raven has a lot of little surprises that she will be learning about her self in the future and I surely hope that I am around for this.

I so enjoy reading academy books with vampires, wolves and fae. I hope to see even more paranormal creatures in future books. Year One kept reminding me of the Twilight saga and the Vampire Diaries. With Cole, Rage, Damien and Greg I kept wondering if we were going to see all the guys fighting over Raven like in Twilight or Vampire Diaries. Well or at least competing for her attention.

Year One has mystery, suspense, romance, great friendships, great characters and awesome world building. Year One is an intense read that kept me glued to the pages wondering what Raven’s parents were keeping secret and wanting to know more about her and her past and about her parent’s past as well.

I kept wondering what is Raven’s full potential? Is there more to Raven than meets the eye? I can’t wait to read the next book Year Two in the Bloodshed Academy series. Year One is a great start to a fantastic new series one in which I am anxiously awaiting more of.

I would recommend Year One to all paranormal fantasy, vampire, wolves and fae fans with an academy setting. Give Year One a shot, one click your copy today!

Reading has always been one of my favorite hobbies, even as a little girl. When I was a toddler, my parents would read stories to me over and over. I would hear them so often that I had the books memorized and could recite the story word by word.

My favorite genres are fantasy, paranormal, and contemporary romance. So of course that's what I'm inclined to write.

I have a husband, two young daughters, and a mini Australian Shepherd. I've lived in Tennessee the majority of my life and love the state.

I'm extremely addicted to caffeine and enjoy drinking coffee and lattes.
