Description from the publisher:

Out of a young woman’s ambition comes a love triangle that could destroy more than her heart.

Firia has always wanted to be a witch, but even though she’s a natural in magic, there’s a problem: She’s human.

Considered by the elven elite to be inferior, Firia needs an edge to be accepted into the Magic Academy. Out of sheer desperation, she summons the demon Varuj, a terrifyingly gorgeous spirit who helps her win the entrance competition. But at what price?

As the commanding demon does everything he can to penetrate every aspect of her innocent life, Firia still finds herself drawn to her study partner, Mae’lin. Not only is the sweet elf completely different from the powerful Varuj, but their relationship is forbidden.

How is she supposed to choose between the demon she owes her life to and the innocent elf who makes her a better person?

This thrilling coming of age new adult romance is from fantasy romance author, Jillian Keep.


Firia has only ever wanted to be a witch.  She has a natural ability, but she is human.  The elves who rule do not want to recognize her rare talent.  In desperation, she practices at night, and summons a demon.  His name is Varuj and he promises to help her to gain admission to an academy in exchange for a promise.  Once at the most elite of the academies, she is attracted to a classmate.  Varuj’s jealousy is all-consuming.  Firia must choose between the demon who has become part of her soul and the sweet elf who has become part of her heart.


This story will appeal to so many people.  You like dark?  Check.  You like fantasy? Check.  You like intrigue? Check.  And so on and so on.  Because it is a magic academy, I feel I must mention this is NOT a re-telling of Harry Potter.  Remember, HP was in the 7-12th grade years of school.  This is university level students, and there are steamy, explicit, sexual activities, including some are of questionable consent.


I really enjoyed this story of magic and demonic mystery.  I always wanted to be a witch when I grew up.  It was fun to escape reality and pretend that that kind of magic was real and possible.
