My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Grave Digger Academy by C.A. King is a wonderfully written young adult paranormal novel. This novel is set in an academy for Grave Diggers. What is a Grave Digger? They are the people that keep the dead in the grave from rising up. While some of the characters in this novel say that there is no need for Grave Diggers, they are proven wrong. Follow a young witch with more power than she knows along with her friends in a wonderful story. C.A. King has become one of my favorite young adult authors. While this novel is more toward young adults, adults can read it too and still get a sense of what is going on in the novel. I can’t wait to one click the next novel.

Grave Digger Academy is the first book I have read by C.A. King. It reminded me a bit of “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” mixed with “The Summoning” by Kelley Armstrong– making it a truly MAGICAL read! I definitely recommend it for young adults interested in witches, ghosts, and all things magical! I enjoyed reading about Makayla and her experiences during her first year at Grave Digger Academy. Overall, this quick read was very intriguing! I kept turning the page, hoping to learn more about the purpose of the Grave Digger Academy as well as Makayla’s purpose. My only wish would be for more detail about certain characters and the surroundings. I am excited to read more books in this series!

I give Grave Digger Academy by C.A. King, 5 stars.

I have really enjoyed this author in the past and was looking forward to seeing what this book had in store for me. Not to mention, the title and concept seemed really interesting too. It surpassed my expectations. Makayla ends up in a magic academy no one wants to be in. But she does what she has to and along the way realizes more about herself and her ancestors than she ever realized. The cast of characters is varied and interesting and really helps to make this a wonderful book. The story itself really sets it aside from other books. Yes, it’s a YA magical academy book, but the foundation for the academy is quite different and is what really hooked me. I could not put this book down and hope to see many more in this series and interesting world.

The author really has another hit on their hands and I highly recommend it.

It read like a dream… like the dream where you wake up on time, but you are somehow inexplicably later and later for every appointment that dream has scheduled until you are days late for the big one. Yea, that dream. I like the plot, and the imagery was cool. I plan to read the sequels.

Grave Digger Academy was my first read by C.A. King, and I for one was not disappointed in this paranormal story. At less then 200 pages, I finished this amazing story in a matter of hours and I can’t wait to read the rest of the series. C.A. King gives us a great protagonist, eccentric but well loved teachers, and a story line that provides tons of dark and magical things. C.A. King also provides us with wonderfully developed characters, great word building, and a plot that leaves the readers wanting more. So if your looking for a great new YA series then I highly recommend Grave Digger Academy.

Grave Digger Academy really sets the stage for what seems like will be a unique, fun, and magical new fictional world. Just enough detail is given to the reader to give a clear visual of the world the author is inviting us into, without the length of some other similar stories. You’re kept on your toes throughout the book, wondering what trouble Makayla is going to get herself into next during her stay at the Grave Digger Academy. This academy certainly wasn’t her first choice, but it seems that there was more at play in deciding her fate than Makayla was ever aware of, and I personally can’t wait to find out more of the back story and see where her magical training takes her. Must read!

Grave Digger Academy tells the story of Makayla, first year paranormal academy student. Makayla ends up at the one school no one ever wants to be placed at–Grave Digger Academy. But there are things about Makayla she doesn’t know. Who is stalking her in the fog and darkness? Why was she placed at Grave Digger Academy when all her brother went to more prestigious schools? Makayla needs answers–and fast before time runs out.

Grave Digger Academy is a great story. I really liked the characters and their development in the story. And I LOVED Makayla’s helpers!! The story was easy to read and moved along at a good pace. I did, however, feel like the conclusion of the book was rushed and sort of glossed over. I would have liked to have seen more happen to build suspense for the next book. I will for sure be reading the rest of the series!!

C.A. King has found a new way to write about a magical world that stands out from other books in this genre. The synopsis does not give much away about the book; which helps to keep you engaged and wanting to know more. This author has creatively and very uniquely created a world about magic, with twists in fate at every turn. I was hooked by the end of the first chapter!

There are a few times throughout the novel where the next chapter starts at a later time than the previous one ended. It left me confused at moments trying to recall the time frame of events; I feel there could’ve been more detail in regards to flow of the months.

Overall it is a recommended read from me, looking for to reading the next books in the series!

Grave Digger Academy by C.A. King was an enjoyable read, and I am excited to read the rest of the series. Makayla is leaving for school and is not happy about what school she has been assigned to. As she makes friends and learns at school, she begins to discover that she may have a family history that has been hidden from her. This was a fast read that kept me hooked from the very first page to the very last page.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Grave Digger Academy is a paranormal YA book that reminds me a bit of Harry Potter, but instead of a sorting hat, people apply to their magical academies of choice through a family book, but the magic places you where you should be.

The characters and story are interesting, and the book is well written. I did want to get to know some of the characters a bit more. The book was a good first book in the series, and sets up the world for future books, but it did seem to gloss over some areas that I would have liked to see more in depth – more interactions between the characters, more info on what they are learning in classes, that kind of thing. Despite wanting this, I still very much enjoyed the book and will be reading the rest of the series.
