Genre(s): Paranormal Romance
Her new school may be the death of her…
Lyra Piper’s dreams for her future are crushed after she blows her audition at Juilliard. Left with no other choice, she has to map out a new plan for the next stage of her life. Her plans get turned upside down when her father is hired at Once Upon Academy—and she is accepted as a student!
Cole Moarte has been preparing to take over his family business for as long as he can remember. He’s now closer than ever to that goal as a senior at Once Upon Academy. Yet instead of focusing on the schoolwork he needs to graduate, his mother decided it would be a better idea for him to waste his time training the newly cursed, Lyra Piper, in the ancient art of reaping souls. Now he has to deal with a snarky—yet intriguing—know-it-all underclassman. And worst of all, the more time they spend together, the harder it is to fight his attraction to her.
Lyra struggles to fit in with a college full of fairytale creatures, challenging coursework, and magical mishaps at every turn. The last thing she needs—besides that pesky family curse—is the unnerving distraction of dark and brooding Cole.
With magic singing in her blood at an unfamiliar and otherworldly pitch, can she figure out the part she was allegedly born to play or will her new school be the death of her?
