Twenty-four year old Shanna is the oldest girl in her class at
The Academy of Spellcasters. She longs to be a level five witch and should be
one of the greatest students in her school based on her parentage. However, she
hasn’t had too much success mastering her abilities after her father’s passing.

upcoming test which is to summon a demon. Her father was a legendary summoner.

liked learning more about as the story progressed.The connection between the two was a nice
blend of sensuality and companionship. It’s a great read to enjoy before
