A Magical Boarding School Romance

“Readers looking for clean YA fantasy will find it in AJ Skelly’s Of Flame & Frost. I found the story to be a refreshing take on magic school, teens with powers, and opposites attracting. With the right amount of romance and heat, I recommend this book for those wanting a good solid magical story.” —MORGAN L. BUSSE, bestselling and award-winning author of the Ravenwood Saga and Skyworld series

Aspen Frost has fallen from grace. Once among the upper echelons of popularity at Magik Prep Academy, a terrifying event at a party leaves a nasty rumor in its wake and thrusts her into social isolation.

Cole Raiden is an unusual hybrid of phoenix and fire-drake. And out of control. When a disastrous accident leaves him devastated and unable to control his inner flames, Magik Prep Academy is his last hope to regain any chance of a normal life. Ostracized because of his genes and his touch that reduces everything to ash, Cole seeks refuge in his loneliness.  

But when bullies find them both, Aspen and Cole reach for the same piece of magic, then find themselves plummeting through time, landing at the beginnings of Magik Prep Academy.  

War is on the horizon. If Aspen and Cole can’t find a way back home, they’ll be caught in a fight that could decimate their future. Cole and Aspen must learn to trust each other, and trust themselves, if they have any hope of reaching their own time again.


With her noteworthy prose filled with wit and charm, Skelly delivers another adventurous yet heart-warming tale. When opposites of fire and ice combine in Of Flame & Frost, Skelly teaches readers a valuable lesson that, rather than dividing us, our differences make us stronger. -V. ROMAS BURTON, bestselling and award-winning author of the Heartmaker Trilogy
