When the element of fire burns within your veins, the academy for all things scorching is the best place to learn how to make that flame burn even hotter.

Alice Blaze is my name, and I’m not exactly your typical sixteen-year-old. My mom disappeared after my birth and my dad was an alcoholic maniac, so I was raised by my protective grandparents in the single house up the hill. The one people only come to visit on Halloween.

Because, yeah, apparently, our house is haunted. Naturally.

As an orphan living in a spooky house, it’s no surprise that my life has been…eventful. I’ve been inadvertently causing trouble since I was little and it always ends up with something combusting into flames. You know, lighting up the curtains, exploding vials in lab class. And don’t get me started with the accidental school fire. Need I say more?

The flames really hit the fan when I’m accused of shattering all the windows in the entire school. Of course, that doesn’t make sense because it has nothing to do with my burning nemesis. But it doesn’t matter. Expulsion is imminent and my grandparents are fed up with my constant transfers.

But then something amazing happens: a letter of invitation lands right onto our doorstep. Or should I say window?

I’m invited to Blazing Academy, the school for all things — and people — that are scorching hot. Shifters, demons, and blazing hot witches…oh, right. I almost left that part out. According to the school, that’s what I am. A blazing hot witch.

Let’s hope that’s all I am, and that this first semester goes a whole lot smoother than I’m imagining. Otherwise, my whole life might just go up in smoke.


Alice Blaze has been waiting in the corner waiting for her moment.  Last year she gave us a chance to met her through the anthology she was part of .  I devoured those seven chapters  and honestly wanteddddddddddd more. I felt like Vercua Salt, the one who wanted everything that Song would give me of this character.

Alice Blaze is young but you could see that this teenager is no ordinary young teen. Even with the destroying scenes that affected her  in that short story. There was a woman waiting to emerge  who would be a force to be reckoned with.

Finally  Song has released  the first instalment in Blaze’s story and we finally learn past the beginnings of Alice. We finally get to see past the gates of Academy and learn secrets behind the gates.  It’s not all fun and games and it’s going to take some hard work

This first instalment was worth the wait. Blazing Academy definitely was the place to be and I love the ideas that Song has thrown into this Academy. I wouldn’t mind be a student at this Academy for the facilities

This series is  different marked my words.  The way things have played out so far means there heaps of potentials and honestly it made me think about a few things.  There was obvious focus on the guys who were all intriguing.

I love the focus on the relationships, it  was all  nice to see that the relationships were going to  be built over time and not over night.  Alice need time given that she was younger and I think this worked well given her need for answers and the fact her own guys were juggling a lot as well.   The ending was a surprise I wasn’t expecting to say the least.  But it left the book in a place that gave me the same feelings I had all those months ago. I wanted more and who would not want more after being immense in this world properly

Alice Blaze has joined the ranks and she is ready to bring it on
