***New Covers Coming***

VAMPIRE ACADEMY meets X-MEN in this completed new adult series!

There’s only one rule in the world I come from.
Keep our existence a secret. Period.

The day my sister broke that rule one too many times, I knew there would be consequences. I expected us to be sent to one of those schools for “troubled” kids—and maybe Daizlei Academy was, in a way. But really, it was far more complicated than that.

You see, I thought that world had forgotten me. Forgotten us. For years we were left alone, and one day . . . we weren’t.

It was only when I got there that I remembered the second rule:
Trust no one.

Because in our world? They would kill me if they knew the truth of what I am.

Daizlei Academy is a school for Supernaturals.

And me? I’m so much more.

*This is a YA+ Academy series with slow-burn romance and a strong but flawed heroine. It is labeled YA(+) for stronger language and some mature situations. As the heroine ages and grows so does the content of the stories.*

What Reader's Say

"This is a great young adult paranormal book to read. It has a great pace, it starts off in the story you don't have to wait for it to build up to something exciting . . . "

"The main character was badass but in a barely personally restrained kind of way. Love the interaction between the sisters, it felt genuine. I also liked that the story felt different, for a fantasy boarding school story."

"This is an excellent start to a great series! I am off to read the novella and then book 2! You did it again Kel Carpenter, you got your story telling hooks in me and now I'm a slave to those series too!!"

"This was one that was very hard to put down. The interplay between her and her two sisters Made for some nice twists. And her relationship developing with Lucas was interesting."

Scion of Midnight

Queen of Lies

Vessel of Destruction

Trial by Heist is a full-length novella set in between Heir of Shadows and Scion of Midnight. This book is told from Johanna’s perspective.

The Mother will guide you. The dragon will call.

I used to believe that. I used to believe a lot of things.

 

My name is Johanna Kozak, and I have spent over a decade living in the shadows of our very dark world. I thought that if I ran fast enough, far enough, that I could outrun my past.

 

Until my best friend was murdered by the same person who killed my parents, and I was the one framed for it.

Now the Supernatural Council hold me prisoner, and if there’s one thing I know—it’s that being a half-breed in a Supernatural world is a death sentence unto itself.

 

The Council Member who locked me up plans to execute me, but little does she know… she’s not the only one with friends in high places—and mine are planning a prison break.

"Well written with an interesting plot the author has shown creative imagination in this well crafted story line. An entertaining read it is full of twists, suspense, stealth and danger."

"One of the best new authors and new series I have come across in years! I loved this book, and can not wait for the follow ups. The characters were well fleshed out but with great twists and mysteries that I was dying to be revealed..."

"Stealth and intrigue fill this alternate world with danger. Joanna has so many enemies on every side, but has found loyal friends she can depend on. This is a paranormal action thriller."

"A new book in the Daizlei Academy series arrived just as I was starting to go through withdrawals.... Book 1.5 introduces several new characters, most notably Johanna, who is put on trial for killing her best friend."

Scion of Midnight

My name is Selena Foster, and I am the first of my kind in a millennium.

I thought that made me invincible. Untouchable. All it really makes me is a target…and a weapon.

The Supernatural Council is going to war, and they've decided what better spear than the girl that can slay demons?

So they blackmail me, and I become the property of the Council. 

They think they own me, but you can’t own what you can’t control. 

I thought the first year at Daizlei was hard...but the second might kill me.
Either way, I'm not going down without a fight.

Scion of Midnight

Vessel of Destruction

My second year at Daizlei didn’t kill me. It did something so much worse.
 

It killed her.
 

And the world will never be the same because of it.

Anastasia thought she could own me. The Supernatural thought they could control me. They didn’t realize the darkness they courted until the walls of 
Daizlei came crushing down around us.

I always thought of myself as hard. Unbreakable. Unbeatable.

Until someone beat me.

Now…I was broken and I planned to use all my sharp edges for the one thing I had left.

 

Revenge.

Heir of Shadows

Trial by Heist 

Scion of Midnight

Queen of Lies

If there is one truth that I hold to in my life, it is that when it rains, it pours.

Perhaps that is why I built myself not for the everyday storms most experience.
But for the hurricanes I have had to learn to withstand.

I know what it is like to feel your heart crack in half like a tree that snaps under too much pressure.

I know the bone-deep, all-consuming, numbness that sets in when the wind and the cold and the water become too much.

I know the desperation that claws under the surface as you try to wait through the night, and hope that come the dawn, the storm has passed.
But perhaps, most importantly, I know how to survive.
Or really, I am too spiteful to die.

Either way, my world is falling apart around me. Death and destruction are knocking on my door. And a storm is coming. One unlike anything we have ever encountered before.

This time it is not Anastasia I will face on the battlefield, but the one who calls to me. The one I cannot face.
This is one storm I don’t know if I will survive . . . or if the price of living is too high.

**This is the final book in Selena's journey. Daizlei Academy is a completed series intended for older teens and adults.**

"This book allowed me to be dragged willingly back into Selena's world once more. As with all of Kel's books, this one did not disappoint. I love Selena, her sisters, and especially her and Ash together. There was so much passion, love, compassion, and courage shown in this final book. It allowed me to feel what the characters must have felt and visualize what was being done."

"If you have not read this series, please do. You will not be sorry!
Kel you are an absolute master with your imagination and I want to live inside your brain! Your mind on the page is perfection!"

"Kel Carpenter is back with a new addiction to her addictively wonderful Daizlei Academy series, and Vessel of Destruction (Book 4) is truly superb. A storm is coming in this, the final book in Selena's adventure."
