What’s a witch without a coven? Just a mage with no focus.
My name is Victoria Grey.
My five familiars died to protect me from my curse and now I’ve been sent away from society to learn to control my magic. Magic that’s taking unexpected twists as it grows.
This is Wildeward: Academy for magicals and monsters. Home for lost souls. Asylum for those they want forgotten.
Blood and magic wove a spell upon my heart. Five men of Wildeward answered its call: Jekyll and Hyde, the werewolf brothers; Frankie, the shy doctor who believes he is a monster; Achoris, a smoking hot but sleepy oracle; and Doyle, my reluctant vampire. But can I keep them?
Winter is here and exams have me on edge. With an uncanny new student wanting all my attention, the creepy Dr. Stein still making my skin crawl, and the b-witch Regina threatening to take what’s mine, I've got enough on my mind. Never mind my search for the perfect gifts and trying to see the warmth of the cold moon season.
The Yuletide is officially on my naughty list.
This is a Reverse Harem series with light m/m content and a non-bully romance. Recommended for mature readers.
4 out of 5 (very good)
Ice Cold Moon is the second book in the Wildeward Academy series and we continue with Victoria's story, although I would recommend reading it as a series due to the overall story arc. Oh my, where to start?
Okay, the first thing I will say is how much I LOVE that Victoria's coterie are taking it slow. Now, I know you're probably shaking your heads but this is a SERIES and the courting, the taking time to get know each other? I love it. And that also means that when steamy times do happen, I love them even more!
Right then, so onto the story. There is a new kid in town who appears to be nice and friendly but also looks like he could be trouble with a capital T. Nik Frost certainly has his own agenda and links, it seems, with our very own Doyle. I said in my last review that I wanted to know more about Doyle's past and Gwyneira Blythe certainly delivered. I also love how Victoria is not a know-it-all and, instead, is wary of her own powers. She is growing in strength but still careful. Love it!
Having the Wild Hunt turn up was the cherry on the icing on the cake for me. So many aspects I am loving about this book and I really, REALLY, can't wait for the next one. Unfortunately, it appears I have to wait until Spring for that. 😭 Oh well, trust me when I say I will be waiting very patiently! 😉
A fantastic addition to the series and definitely recommended by me.

Gwyneira Blythe is a romance novel junkie with a love of all things witchy, paranormal, and historical. Plus a dash of sci-fi when the mood hits.
When she's not writing, it's a mad world of toddler tantrums, dogs barking, and a cat dashing underfoot all while sneaking kisses from the bemused husband.
