Her first assignment - find and eliminate the killer who is using the Academy as their own personal hunting ground. Most witches don't work for police departments, but Michelle isn't your average witch. She's clanless, looking for a warlock who isn't offended by her lack of family connections, and in danger of losing her job if she can't find the eight escaped trolls before they start eating the local residents.
Trolls, angry police, and misbehaving spells are the least of her problems. Statues attacking homeowners might be problematic for your average witch, but to Michelle it's another day at the office. Maddison James is about to discover some truths about the world. Double WTF. Well, things just got a little more interesting. The Supernatural Academy is where shifters, vampires, magic users, and fey are educated. Where they are taught about their abilities, and how to function in the human world. Maddison already has the human part down, but this supernatural thing is an entirely new dangerous game.
I always imagined Death's final kiss would be cold. It wasn't. Four years later, I can still remember the exact shade of his skin: a blue so pale it looked like moonlight. I dream of his touch. Mostly, I paint the man under the heavy cowl, including those perfect lips that ruined mine for anyone else. I'm obsessed with him. The doctors say he's nothing more than a hallucination caused by a mixture of head trauma and emergency pain medications.

Now, something's changed, and my drawings are taking on a life of their own. Death is back. He wants another kiss.
And he's not alone. I've always felt like an outsider. Until my 18th birthday, I didn't know how true that was. First, I started seeing strange things. Then, the tips of my ears began to shift. Now, even touching something made of iron makes me sick. Am I losing my mind? When four mysterious fae males corner me in the street, they bring terrifying news: I'm not human.
I'm a changeling, a fae swapped at birth. Life in Devil's Gate is hell on earth. With no Regent to maintain order between the species, humans live in fear of what lurks in the shadows while the vampires, wolves, and fae that inhabit Devil's Gate battle for territory and power. And year-old Estelle Cotillard is caught up in the middle. Harboring a dark secret, Estelle tries to stay out of trouble, but when vampire Gage Coreil starts showing up insisting she needs protection, she has to decide: stay in the shadows or become who she was always supposed to be.
I'm an illusionist, not a psychic. Going on TV is supposed to advance my career, but things go wrong. Like vampires and zombies kind of wrong. My name is Sasha Urban, and this is how I learned what I am. Ethan Decker is a specialized "Hunter" for the most secretive agency in the U. But when a daring mission takes a lethal turn, a renegade assassin kills Decker's son in retribution. Forced to leave his devastated, unsuspecting wife, Sydney, to save her from the madman's threats, Decker exiles himself in the New Mexican desert to live in a jail of his own guilt and grief. I also have a secret.
One I can never tell anyone else. When I look someone in the eyes, I can see their deepest secret, the one hidden behind the illusion they show the world. Great book and great narration, wish the book was longer.

I guess I better buy book 2! Ashryn was an orphan raised to kill vampires, and she was extremely good at it. But Ashryn has a secret. She has a special power.
Now by a trick of fate Ashryn has become what she hunted. Join her as she tries to uncover the truth and discover if the vitriol she was raised on is true. Loved the narration. I liked the narration in Shattered Illusions performed by Charlotte Storm, a totally different pace for the other narrators that Laura has chosen to read her other series.
I would have given it a 3. I think this series would be best be done as a whole trilogy, since each book is novella size and Book 1 ends just as its getting to the good part haha. I liked the overall story by Laura Greenwood, Ashryn is a feisty MC that has her world flipped outside down when she becomes the thing she has trained to hunt and kill her whole life.
I think the audiobook changed who my favorite was surprisingly, but I will wait to hear more of this story on audio before I confirm that haha.
