Grave Digger Academy II (Grave Digger Academy Book 2) by C.A. King – Review by Helen Dawkins

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another great book in this series. This is Makayla’s second year at the Grave Digger Academy and hopefully it is a good year full of magic and friendship. The beginning starts out with Makayla being dropped off for her second year of school, and it immediately is a disaster, story of her life recently. Everyone is still looking at her weird, and her professor (AKA a necromancer) is still on the loose, the only positive note, is she can talk to her friends again, even though everything won’t go back to the way things used to be. The headmistress has signed up Makayla and her friends for the inter-academy games in order to “Show” the Crones that she is not evil nor a necromancer. Will this year turn out great or will it be another disaster? Will they actually learn magic this year at school, or will they be left to fend on their own once more? I cannot wait to read book three!!!

I enjoyed getting to read the second book in this series and I am looking forward to reading the third book as well. I thought it did a great job in uncovering some of the mysteries that book 1 set up, while still leaving some mysteries for the third book to hopefully answer! At times, it did feel a bit rushed in parts, but I definitely enjoyed branching out to the other schools and meeting some other students as well. As always Makayla is a fantastic heroine, she is hard-working, but isn’t afraid to ask for help when she needs it, and has a ton of sass and attitude along with it. I loved her newest helper and thought character was extremely adorable and fit right in with her other two helpers. If you are a fan of paranormal YA books, this is definitely a series you don’t want to miss!

Grave Digger Academy II is the second book in the Grave Digger Academy series. Makayla and her classmates have returned to school and are in for a challenging year. There is competition between the academies and the Grave Digger Academy students are the underdogs. I enjoyed the further escapades of Makayla and the gang. They are learning more about their capabilities and growing into them. I also liked that there were interactions with students outside of their school. The teachers are enjoyable as well, and got a bit more time in this book. I enjoyed this book even more than the first and can’t wait to read the next book in this series.

Grave Digger Academy 2 by C.A. King is a fun, fast paced, ya, paranormal read that you don’t want to miss. This series gives you a Harry Potteresque feel as you learn magic with the witch, Makayla and her unique friends.

In this second installment Makayla finds herself returning to Grave Digger Academy for her second year along with the rest of her classmates, since no one made the honour roll last year making them miss out on the coveted academy transfer position. GDA is still thought of as the lowest of low magical academies, so it is dire for the students to win the upcoming inter-academy face off or GDA will face closure. Can the students find their strengths and persevere in the trials bringing prestige to themselves and back to Grave Digger Academy, or are the cards stacked against them? What all will they discover about themselves, their competition, and the academy along the way?

This series has everything you want in a ya paranormal book such as: action, magic, interesting characters, great world building, and an interesting storyline. I’m really glad I found this series and can’t wait to read the third installment.

This is a new author to me, and I admit it took me a couple of days to get into the story (maybe due to timing more than anything else) but once I got to grips with the reasoning behind Makaylas dislike with being sent to Grave Digger Academy instead of one of the other better thought of academies in the paranormal academy system, I fell hard into the story. There is a distinct building of character and plot which holds you in their world.<br />Makayla is a seventh born to a witch family, this in itself is a thing of myth, as well as being the only girl this continues to follow the myth. First years of school are not allowed access to areas or town, they have not been taught the art of the Grave Digger, but Makayla and her counterparts (as friends is a too strong description) are determined to find their own way. We discover as we wave through the story that there are secrets a few generations ago and this along with magical jewellery, is Makayla the one to bring back to force the art of Necromancy. Once the first years have found their familiars Makayla stands out even more. Add to the intrigue the seemingly forgettable Griffin and possible Tutor turner evil Professor Wooly.<br />I cannot wait for the next in the series as I know I will enjoy reading how the story continues.<br />

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Grave digger academy was adorable and sinister all at the same time. I really liked the students and the friendships they formed all except for Frankie, she seemed abnormally bitter and cranky about her past for reasons unknown to the reader yet. She came across as a hateful, unbearable, bully to everyone. I’m very curious to know what’s up with Griffin, why he seems so mysterious, and why everyone forgets him. I enjoyed the whole story but I adored the helpers Puffer, Gargle, and little Boris, who was almost a necromancies sacrifice, and how they aided/saved Makayla. I will definitely be looking forward to the rest of the series to find out what happens next.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I enjoyed the concept of a paranormal book series surrounding a strong and witty female lead character. So I was excited to jump head first into this book. Now that I am finished, I cannot wait to read books 2 and 3.

Like most young folks, Makayla hopes to get into the school of her choice but there is always a chance of only getting accepted to the Grave Digger Academy. When she finds out that she was chosen for the inevitable Grave Digger Academy, she is crushed, and her family is heartbroken. What’s a girl to do other than make the best of her situation since she has no other options, right?

I enjoyed how easily the story flowed and found that I read this in one sitting. While I experienced this in a short period of time, I found that it packed a punch. It had everything that you need: a great plot, well developed characters, and a lot of activity to keep you enthralled throughout the pages. Plus, who doesn’t love a good story that has a magical fantasy plotline? You’ll enjoy reading through M’s progress from someone who hates the idea of attending the academy to maturing to a talented student.

I think anyone of any age will enjoy this book and be intrigued to try the entire series. I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars.

Second year in the paranormal academy world Makayla finds herself returning to Grave Digger Academy. She isn’t alone in the return for another year. The position for transfer to another academy did not happen for any student at the academy. All bodies are needed to compete in an inter-academy face off with the other academies. A loss would be devastating to the school ensuring that its doors would close for good, but a win could get them the financial needs toward the school. What would happen in the paranormal world if the Grave Diggers didn’t keep the dead six feet under?

What could be better than having the gang back together and competing to keep their school open? Something foul smelling and out of place or will these inter-academy games be smooth sailing for the Grave Digger students?

This read was just as exciting as book 1! I flew through the story in just one sitting. It was good to continue on with Makayla and the other students in this second installment of the series. I cannot wait to continue on with book 3.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Grave Digger Academy is the first book in this series by C.A. King, the story followed Makayla, the youngest child of a very successful magical lineage who is ready to start her first day at the magical academies. Makayla is not the same as her brothers, who are all very accomplished in their areas, and she ends up at the Grave Digger Academy, the least respected of the magical schools. Not everything is as it seems at her new school however, the teaching staff refuse to talk about certain subjects, and she feels that there is something sinister lurking in the shadows. This was a fun novel and did well at introducing the different characters in the new magical world. I enjoyed it, would recommend to younger readers who like the paranormal genre.
