Spirited

The newest novel by C.M. Stunich has been released.  C.M. said that this is her favorite that she has written and I can totally see why.  Spirited is the first in The Academy of Spirits and Shadows reverse harem series.  It follows the story of Brynn of Haversey and her handler Jasinda, as they attempt to exorcise a ghost to earn their way into the Spirit Academy after being rejected 7 times. But Brynn is special.  She is half angel and half human whose black wings are so much larger than her that she often knocks into things and falls over. And this combination gives her the ability to see ghosts and spirits.  And yes ghosts and spirits are two different things. While on her assignment, Brynn runs into ghost Elijah that has been trapped from a year when he and his handler attempted to exorcise the same ghost, but they didn’t make it out alive.  Elijah helps Brynn and somehow in the process is unbound from his place of death and bound to Brynn.  While on their return, new ghost in tow, Brynn meets Vexer a griffin (in this story griffins are essentially men or women that can trun into griffins but always have their huge wings on their back) that returns her to the capital city. He takes an interest in her and tries to get her to go on a date with him, which she refuse, but later regrets that choice.  But she has more important things to do, like get Elijah back to the castle that she lives at and have him speak to the queen.
