Alex McKenna & The Academy of Souls (Alex McKenna #2)

55443330. sy475

Alex McKenna & The Academy of Souls is the second book in this YA paranormal fantasy series by Vicki-Ann Bush. Released in Oct 2020, it's 250 pages and available in paperback and ebook formats. It's worth noting that the ebook format has a handy interactive table of contents as well as interactive links and references throughout. I've really become enamored of ebooks with interactive formats lately. 

This is a well written paranormal "high school" fantasy with light romance elements for young adults. The ensemble cast of characters include both the living and "departed". Alex has the ability to cross-realms and this installment of the series sees him using his abilities to find a young ghost-girl named Haven and help to reunite her with her sister Ophelia. 

There were some continuity and editing issues (word substitutions mostly) but all in all an entertaining and engaging quick read. I would recommend it to fans of the genre. Although it's the second book in the series, I had no trouble following the plot or keeping the characters sorted. Three and a half stars.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
