Review: Riot House by Callie Hart

I did receive an ARC of this book from the author to review, all thoughts are my own. Please know that this book deals with some dark themes, so if you do not like that then this book is definitely not for you.


They might be richer than gods, but they’re morally bankrupt.
As far as the boys who run America’s most exclusive international academy are concerned, I’m an unwelcome interloper, an inconvenience, and they’re determined to make my life a living hell.

When Wren Jacobi sets eyes on Wolf Hall Academy’s newest inductee, all he sees is an easy mark. A reserved little girl with a target painted on her back. He knows nothing of my troubled past, though. Nothing of my mother’s suspicious death, or the horrific treatment I’ve had to endure at the hands of my psychotic father.

And he has no idea of the lengths that I, unassuming little Elodie Stillwater, will go to in order to break the savage beast who dreams of breaking me first.

There’s a wolf stalking the forests that surround my new school.
Little does he know…
There are far scarier predators lurking out there in the dark.

My Review:


THIS BOOK! Was so good. Wren is a broken boy that I would love to help heal. Elodie if probably one of my fave heroins from books I’ve recently read. The first few chapters of this book were a bit slow but it quickly picked up. The mystery elements of this story, both with Elodie’s past and what happened at the Academy before she arrived, were well thought out and executed. Wren can come be my Riot Boy any day! *please* The ending honestly had me reeling, like daaamn I was NOT expecting what happened. Overall, highly recommend!

“He is probably the most savagely beautiful human being I have ever seen. It’s not his looks that freeze my limbs to stone though. It’s the way he looks at me, like for this split second I am the sole focus of his entire world.”
