Title: Killing November (#1) Hunting November (#2). Author: Adriana Mather. Genre: YA, Dark Academia mystery thriller. Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟. 5/5


It’s a form of power to be able to embrace yourself in all the ways you are and all the ways you are not. “

November doesn’t know why her father put her here. All she knows that the academy is not a simple academy. They teaches about poisons, knife throwing, how to kill, hide and manipulate.

When she is stumbling around to keep up with deceptions and manipulations, a murder happens and all the fingers are pointing towards her.

In the quest of finding the real killer she finds secrets and stories  about the academy, about strategia and most of all about her own family, with killers behind her can she make it to save her missing father and herself?

My Thoughts

This series was so intense and action packed. I couldn’t put the book down.

I love when the story is a set in a mysterious school with mysterious murder.  I was at edge of my seat when things was going to happen and biting nails when an fighting takes place!

I loved the plot,the characters and world building!  I really loved the first book(killing November) but not so sure in about the second. Of course the second was great too but that was nothing like the first book.

The book take us into November’s hunt to find out the killer, there by learning about her family and her adventure quest to find her missing father, who has bounty on his head by the leader of the strategia with every possible assassin behind her father.

The story is packed with action, romance, adventure.
Definitely recommend if you like
Spooky  castle- like school meet with a spy movie.
