For those enticed by forbidden desires and secrets that demand a price...

Nightshade University was supposed to be a land of opportunity, a haven of knowledge. A prestigious institution catering to the elite Fae of all four courts:

The Dawn Court: Defenders of justice and honor.

The Dusk Court: Agents skilled in secrets and espionage.

The Demon Court: Bringers of chaos, reveling in destruction.

The Moon Court: Mystics wielding celestial magic and divination.

As a freshman, navigating power and politics was not on my syllabus, but now it's a game I'm forced to play.

At the heart of the intrigue stands Lysander Thorne. Our connection is electric, an attraction that's as forbidden as it is undeniable. With him, I'm drawn into a world of shifting alliances and treacherous loyalties.

But as I delve deeper, I discover more than just courtly schemes. A darkness looms, one that ties my fate to the very soul of Nightshade University. I might be the key to unearthing a malevolent spirit, but at what cost? My heart, my future... or perhaps even my life?

In a world where secret societies rule, and passion intertwines with politics, trust is a luxury and every decision, a high-stakes gamble.


I received Court of Moonlight and Shadows in return for an honest review as part of the tour hosted by Chaotic Creatives Influence.

Sarielle's life has been planned out for years she would follow in her parents footsteps but when she assigned the Moon Court everything changes. Now she's in a new court with all new friends and new abilities. Her unique mark has drawn some attention from a elite group and she can't deny her connection with Lysander even if he's betrothed to another. Will she make it through school or will the darkness that is looming over the school be to much. 

I love Sarielle she's a sweetheart and such a great character I really connected with her right from the start. She's total kicks butt when it comes to protecting herself and those she cares about. I love Lirien her new friend who sees the future and adds just the right amount of humor to the story. Than we have Lysander her love interest they have this steamy chemistry even though he's betrothed to another. I don't want to like him but the more we see of him the more I do. 

I really enjoyed Court of Moonlight and Shadows I ended up devouring it in one afternoon because I had to know what would happen next with our girl. I love the idea of the different courts each bringing something to offer even if they shouldn't be mixing. This is a fast paced action packed steamy romance that keeps the reader on their toes till the very end. I really enjoyed every moment of the book it's filled with my favorite tropes. 

This is my first book by the author who is actually a duo of very talented authors that I haven't read yet. CoraLee June and Laura Lee both new to me and I'm hooked on their storytelling style I plan to check out their other books while I eagerly wait for the next one in this series. I can't wait to see what's going to happen with Sarielle and Lysander and what the future holds. Perfect for fans of Dark Academia novels with just the right amount of romance with the story. I truly enjoyed everything about it.
