Will she follow the pack…or destroy them? A dead mother. A violent father. A missing brother. When Mia’s father is murdered, it’s her estranged uncle that comes to the rescue, but what he offers her in return for his help could be worse than the life she is leaving behind. Taken to Hood Academy, a unique school deep in the forest, she discovers friendships, love, and the courage to stand on her own.  Mia takes the oath that seals her future as a werewolf hunter, but not everyone wants Mia to succeed. Screams in the night. Secret rooms. Hidden letters. Mia becomes an important piece in a game she doesn’t want to play.  Loyalty, friendships, and family bonds are tested as Mia discovers her true identity, but will the truth set her free, or will it destroy her?

It's been a couple of years that I have read a werewolf book and I tell you I miss reading werewolf books. So I was really glad and happy when I stumble upon Hood Academy on NetGalley and saw that it was a werewolf book I had to check it out. And I am so glad and happy that I got approved to read this amazing book which I loved and enjoyed reading so much. Now since this was an e-arc that I read there were some errors in the e-arc and some repetitive sentences in this book but I don't think the errors will be on the finished copy. But with all the errors in the e-arc, it didn't stop me from enjoying and loving  Hood Academy. At the very beginning of the book, it starts with police officers trying to interview Mia after she witnesses the murder of her abusive father who was killed by a werewolf and Mia was in complete shock on what she had seen. She knows the police won't believe her so she gives a vague description of the killer but won't say that it was a werewolf that killed her father Frank because she didn't want the police to send her to a mental institute. And I don't blame Mia one bit for being that vague with police at all I know they would not have believed her at all if they would have sent her to a mental institute right away thinking she was mentally unstable or worst yet the police would of blame her for her father death. Now Mia was an orphan and had nobody for her to go too when all a suddenly her estrange uncle Sabastian that comes to the rescue to take Mia in his home. But when Mia finds out that her uncle's home is a school for hunters who hunt werewolves. Mia knows that it is going to be hard to trust people that she hardly knows. But then Mia life is turned upside down when she finds out the secrets about the Hood Academy, the death of her mother and also finds out what happens to her missing brother Zak, she has to prepare for all the twist and turns that her life throws out on her and she has to be ready for everything that will come up next in what she wants to do with her life.  All and all I thoroughly loved and enjoyed reading Hood Academy that I can't wait to read more werewolf's books soon!
