Alexandra is having a hard enough time being human, dealing with the unexpected death of her father and a family that’s slowly unraveling in the wake of that death. 

So she really, really didn’t need a werewolf attempting to kill her on top of everything else.  

But hey, such is life sometimes, right? Sometimes it gives you lemons, and sometimes it gives you death and vicious werewolf attacks that leave you infected, confused, and surrounded by strangers who all claim they want to save and protect you. 

Now all Alex has to do is decide who to trust. Which would be a lot easier if A.) Her life wasn’t suddenly insane, and B.) If one of those people trying to earn her trust wasn’t Kael, a boy who manages to be arrogant, infuriating, and entirely-too-hot-for-his-own-good, all at once. Oh, and who also might know more about herself than she does. Although, it turns out, that isn’t saying much. 

Because her whole life has been a lie. 

And now that her father is gone, dangerous truth after dangerous truth is surfacing, and Alex finds herself a would-be pawn in the center of an ancient supernatural war. A war that will force her to make an impossible choice, thanks to the magic tied to her bloodline—magic that could save the entire human world, or potentially unleash a monstrous force unlike anything it’s ever seen.

Synopsis

Sixteen-year-old Phoebe Pope has enrolled at the Campus Below: a spy academy for shape-shifters hidden deep beneath the grounds of a boarding school whose humans unknowingly protect it. There, thanks to a carefully planned schedule, she leads a double life: spy trainee Below and normal teenager Above.

As if two course loads, concealing a secret power she alone wields, and coping with her father’s recent death weren’t enough, Phoebe finds herself developing major feelings for actor and teen heartthrob Colten Chase, who attends the Campus Above and appears to be majoring in winning Phoebe’s heart. But when officials learn that Phoebe may be at the center of a startling prophecy, she becomes the target of shape-shifting assassins who will stop at nothing to suppress the truth.

Now Phoebe’s lessons about Shaper’s enemies and spycraft take on great importance as a menace stalks the campus, with Phoebe as its target. Meanwhile, what began as an unlikely relationship with Colten, quickly morphs into heartache when she suspects that something sinister lurks beneath this movie star’s glitter and fame. Suddenly, Phoebe’s caught in a mesh of lies, betrayals, and danger where she doesn’t know who to trust, and needs to rely on herself—and her secret power—to get to the truth and to stay alive.

Sample Reviews:

"I ADORED this book! It's been a long time since I've found a YA fantasy to be as unputdownable as The Year of Four was...One of my favorite aspects about this book was the world building. Nya Jade did such an amazing job of setting up the Shaper world...The Year ofFour is spellbinding, fast paced, and romantic debut!" (5 Stars)-Lauren's Crammed Bookshelf
 
"Kicking off the story from the opening chapter spectacularly, author Nya Jadehas created a vivid and appealing shifter world and draws her readersinto an enticing and exciting storyline.Jade depicts a very detailed and complex society of shifters with intriguing hierarchy in The Year of Four... an addictive new paranormal series." (5 Stars)
-Rachel @ The Rest Is Still Unwritten
"...a fun, entertaining and very well-written YA fantasy/paranormal novel that will keep you glued to its pages all the way through... fantastically imagined..." (5 Stars)
