Merlyn Academy Book Three


Loved it! 😍

If you have ever wished you could physically jump into a book to get away, then this is the series for you!



Merlyn Academy Book 3, by Sophia Stone, is the third and final book in the Merlyn Academy series. It picks up where book 2 leaves off, so no, you can't read it by itself or you might be confused. Lizzie starts her third term with her trusted friends, the Knight brothers, and Elenore on what is going to be a life or death year. She has accepted the challenge the Assembly has thrown at her, by manipulating it to her terms, without their knowledge of course. What they don’t know won't hurt them, right?   

Lizzie and her friends' race against time and enemies to rise to the top and be the last ones standing. Once again, Lizzie has bullies and mean girls standing in her way, making it harder. But that does not stop her. If she fails, she and her loved ones will die. Harry is still out there, plotting and trying to kill her. And she still has a lot to learn.   

Although this is a paranormal fantasy, Lizzie is a foster child. A child who grows up in a group home knowing nothing about who she is or who her family was. She doesn’t let that stop her, even when she finds out about magic, and a whole new world she knows nothing about. Every day she is learning something new, playing catch up to the other kids her age, who grew up in the magical world.   

I am awarding this book 4 stars as it is well-written. It does not contain profanity, but it is a Reverse Harem Paranormal Romance, meaning one girl, multiple guys. If that is a scenario that offends you, then this book is not for you. I loved this book and recommend the series to anyone who loves a good paranormal series. There are fairies, portals, wands, and magical lockets.
