My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book. Yet I’m torn on what to rate it. There were many parts that seemed skipped over, but I feel like it will all be explained as I read more of the series. I’m definitely left wanting more. Makayla’s character was so relatable and complex. At first I thought she was kind of shy and down, but she was pretty spunky while at the academy. I can’t tell if being a 7th born is a good thing or not yet but I can not wait to put my granddaughter to bed so I can start the next book tonight!! Overall very good young adult paranormal book.

Magical academia – um Yes Please!
Makayla is desperate to find a way out of the Grave Digger Academy when her top three academy choices rejected her. With her new classmates, also wanting to get out, shenanigans ensue!

I really enjoyed this!
Makayla is sassy, smart and determined. The characters are well thought out and the magic/world is so intriguing – loved the urban legend and Makayla’s magical friends.
The ending was a bit convenient but I am excited to pick up the next book!

I have read several books by C. A. King so I was very excited for this new series. This is a young adult paranormal novel that follows a young witch at the beginning of her journey in Academy, where witches learn how to properly use their magic. Makayla must navigate an unappealing Academy, classes where topics are taboo, and run-ins with the dead. Overall, I really liked this book. It’s a great start to the series. The characters are well thought out, and relatable, even if they’re witches; there is a great story line as well. There were parts throughout the story, however, that felt rather rushed. It almost felt as if some thoughts were incomplete. The characters and the overall story kept me reading and interested and I am honestly looking forward to the second book in the series.

I was so excited to read the second book of this series, and I was not disappointed whatso ever. Makayla is back again in her 2nd year, no one was able to get the coveted transfer spot. So she is back up to her shenanigans tis year, only this time the stakes are higher with the inter-academy face off. Will the GDA be able to take back their spot and be able to keep the school open, or will they fail and the school’s doors close for good? In this second installment prepare for more shenanigans, twists and turns, and the return of our favorite class and classmates! I hope the third book is just as amazing as this one was!

This is an author that I have loved reading from the first book I picked up by her. I enjoy her writing style and her attention to details that make her stories pop. This book is no different. It is book two in the series which is just as great if not greater than the first one. This is a well written story about a new group of students at the academy and they are about to learn there is so much more about this academy than meets the eye. I enjoyed how the characters are creative and unique. They kept the story engaging and made it hard to put down. They have great growth throughout the story as well. I found this book to be fast paced and just an entertaining story to read. I highly recommend this book and this author.

I was intrigued by the title, the summary interested me, and I’m really glad I chose this book! I really like Makayla! Her struggle being the youngest of her six brothers and the pressure she feels to get into the “right” school is so relatable. Her drive to understand, even in a place she doesn’t feel she’s supposed to be is really cool too. The friends she makes, the teachers, her helpers, every character is interesting and there is something about every single one that kept me wondering more about them as I read this beginning of Makayla’s journey. I’m really looking forward to the next one!

If you love Harry Potter, then you are going to love this first book in the Grave Digger Academy series!

It starts off with a young teen trying to find out about herself, she’s curious and questions everything. Makayla wants to be in a prestigious academy for witches but soon realizes that she’s put into Grave Digger Academy, the exact opposite of prestigious. She soon realizes there is more going on than what meets the eye.
With help from a couple of soon to be friends, she starts twisting the tables on the witching world. This was a great and fast read, full of teenage angst and slightly cringe-worthy (think about being in trouble with your parents back in high school).

This is a great YA Fantasy for Harry Potter fans and a very good read for beginner readers looking to go a litter further in chapter books. Although, the style of writing was not my particular favorite, I would definitely recommend!

Family secrets, hidden magical talents and a school no one wants to be at all add up to a humorous, adventurous, fantastical, world. Makayla ends up where no one wants to be, The Grace Digger Academy and while there she begins to find out she has undiscovered abilities, plus some long buried family secrets. This was a quick read and an enjoyable one. The character development and storyline were well thought out and kept my attention from the beginning to the end.

I’m so happy I picked up this book to read. I’ve enjoyed several books by this author so I jumped at the chance to read the first book in the new series. A fun young adult paranormal book that includes a first year witch who finds herself at the Grave Digger Academy when her hopes were to attend better academies that were available. How will Makayla survive this low point, deal with a villain, and still learn valuable knowledge to be something more?
Makayla is young and just figuring out things in life. She is challenged not only by things she is learning at the academy but also things she didn’t expect. The new environment and friends help her find her way and experience life away from family. It kind of reminded me of when I went to college and had to figure out life.
