Shadow Caster (The Nightwatch Academy Book 1) Kindle Edition
Murdering humans is a huge no-no and comes with an off-with-your-head sentence. Doesn’t matter if you don’t remember doing the crime.
I killed a human, and no, it wasn’t on purpose, but that shit doesn’t matter to the council. I’m facing death. So, when I’m offered a deal to avoid execution, I’d be a fool not to take it, even if it means leaving the human world and urban life behind to enroll in the Nightwatch Academy – a gothic monstrosity hidden from human eyes, located way too close to the largest tear in the fabric of our reality.
It would be fun if I had any inclination of becoming a member of the Watch or supporting the shadow knights at keeping the Formorian threat at bay. But heck, the monsters beyond the mist aren’t my problem. I have personal demons to deal with.
Once I’m out, the Watch can shove it.
But one sip from the ceremonial goblet and my plans to coast are out of the window as my powers spark to life.
I’m an anomaly, one the Watch won’t be letting walk any time soon.
My only comfort is a man who prides himself on his ability to harness pain. Battle scarred and formidable, he’s my tutor, my mentor, and the object of some super saucy dreams. He’s completely off limits and my only hope of surviving my first test.
I’ll need to harness my powers fast.
There can be no distractions.
But when my fellow cadets start going missing then returning with no memory of who they used to be and my best friend is taken, turning a blind eye is no longer an option.
Allies are limited when you’re a freak. Luckily, I don’t need a cheer squad to get shit done. Whoever is responsible better watch out. I’m coming for them, and I’ll be bringing the pain.
The Vampire Academy meets Game of Thrones in this kick-ass, supernatural academy, Urban Fantasy romance with no choosing required.

I think there’s more to Indie than meets the eye and I think her being a shadow or whatever will enable her to do more.
In this we see some potential love interests, but nothing more than a stolen kiss here or there happens. Though there’s tons of attraction thrown around.
Something I dislike of this author’s writing and this is my fourth series of theirs, is how they use the word monolith in legit every single book, as well as going to sleep and the next scene being not the next morning but some other time. Sometimes I want to see how awkward the morning was or there are some interactions I want with characters to be seen.
I’m definitely interested but this isn’t my favorite yet. It was pretty slow going to start and I had trouble focusing on this one. Still I kept going and it got better. I’m curious if their enemy is actually their enemy.
Indigo Justice’s whole woe-is-me personality is honestly such a drag. She floods the book with this whiny and annoying constant state of complaint. She has reason to be upset with her lot in life; her families misguided hatred, being forced into servitude, the disgust that mars the faces of all students around her. I understand her life is not one to envy, but I just want to see her start accepting it and converting her circumstances to her advantage already.
The world building is fairly interesting. There’s a definite lack of detail. A giant portion of necessary backstory is missing. We’re given such minute insight to leave us wanting more. Who was that formorian in the mist? Is indigo the only shadow cadet to ever question instead of blindly follow?
What the ever-loving-heck made it possible for such a psychopath to hold any power for so long? How did no one notice the mayor of crazy town was in their midst?
I can’t figure out yet who will be a part of her harem. This must be Cassidy’s modus operandi? Slow-slow-slow burn the rom and focus on the action and plot? I’m enjoying this take compared to the instalove most prevalent in the RH genre.

On campus though, cadets keep being found without any of their memories. Is it some part of Other attack?
Indigo Justice is a nightblood (vampire) woman on a mission. She’s trying to escape the expectations of parents who do not love her. So she’s fighting in the supernatural pits and working in a bar and generally avoiding coming home.
Her father decides enough is enough and arranges for her to join the Nightwatch Academy, where supernaturals learn how to police themselves and where the Shadow Knights train to fight against the Fomorians, to protect the supernatural world and humanity.
Indigo hates being forced into the Nightwatch Academy and doesn’t really apply herself. Her classmates resent her and her attitude and she isn’t particularly popular. Then it is discovered that she has the gene that makes her into a Shadow Knight, and she become the first woman to ever receive the training.
This book is exceptionally plot heavy. Everything moves at a mile a minute and it is wonderful. As well as the plot there is a good deal of focus on the relationships between Indigo and the other members of her team as she trains to become a Shadow Knight. It’s a slow change of attitude towards her as the team works together, which I really like.
There is a love interest but it’s very low key and sexy “but we can’t!” conversations. The romance is a very small part of this book, which is more about team work and friendships.
There is lots more to come with this series, and I can’t wait to get stuck into the next book.
It’s all a bit of a mess and needs editing and going over. Characters act out and it’s a bit disappointing. I was hoping for more.
I might read the next book but I am not encouraged to.
