Voodoo Academy is a highly engaging work of fiction in the urban fantasy, adventure, and academy romance sub-genres, and was penned by author Theophilus Monroe. Forming the opening novel in the exciting Gates of Eden: The Voodoo Legacy series, this high quality work is recommended for mature teens and adult readers due to a few moderate references and explicit language. The plot centers on Annabelle Mulledy, both lucky and unlucky to survive a voodoo attack as a small child. Cursed with the presence of a 200-year-old spirit, Annabelle picks up the girl’s strange abilities too. So when she draws the attention of an evil Loa, Annabelle finds herself invited to study at the Voodoo Academy in order to master the arts and fend off the dark antagonist.

One of the things I enjoyed most about this book was that the heroine is not your typical plain, pleasant or naïve girl, but a feisty young woman with plenty of bite-back. Annabelle is a firecracker from the off, an inspiring figure that YA readers are sure to love and root for. Author Theophilus Monroe puts a huge effort into the style and atmosphere of the novel to bring the incredible world of voodoo magic to life, acknowledging both its light and dark sides and developing excellent internal lore to the magic which holds up well. Academy fiction fans will love the set-up of this strange and ethereal school, and overall I would highly recommend Voodoo Academy to all magical fantasy fans looking for an accomplished new series to fall in love with.”
