Reviwe of Wicked Academy 1: The Magic Elite by Nissa Leder

I’ve always known my family had its secrets.

When I, Wren Jacobsen, head off to college at Wicklow Academy, I assume the hardest part will be winning the bet I made with my on-and-off-again high school boyfriend not to sleep with anyone the entire semester.

But Wicklow isn’t at all what I expected. Wicked Academy, as the other students call it, is an academy that trains Sorcerers to fight the dark magic rapidly growing around the world.

Not only does magic exist, but my family is one of the elites.

Now classes like Incantations, Potions and Herbs, and Magical History fill my days, and I’ve caught the eyes of two upperclassmen. Too bad I made that stupid wager.

With the dark arts growing stronger, Wicklow has found a way to transfer someone’s magic to another, which means only the best students will get to keep their powers.

As I juggle classes and struggle to keep my pants on, I’m thrown into a group with my long-time rival Elaine Astor. If we can’t bury our years-old grudge, we might both lose our newfound powers for good. 

My Review: 5 STARS
I picked this up because of the blurb and cover, and was very happy to dive in. It started fast and the pace only picked up as we went further into the story. It was a whirlwind of a ride and I loved everything about the story, and ended up reading it in one sitting. Wren was an amazing character and it felt like we were learning about the world along with her and everything wasn't all good. Overall, an enjoyable read and one I would recommend.
