A while ago I read a book that was set at a magical academy. The female main character goes there and she didn't know that she had magical powers.

I remember that in the book there were doors that led to different rooms/places. One of the places was a beach that no one entered because there was a magical creature that was a wolf/fox type animal that everyone was scared of, but this creature bonded with the female main character and it became her familiar.

  • Hi I read this about a year ago and I've been searching for the last couple of months but I can't find it. I don't remember what the cover art looked like but I remember that it was the first book of the series, sorry if that's not helpful Jun 6 at 20:59

  • The description reminds me of Gunnerkrigg Court. (Which is a bit easier to look at than @FuzzyBoots's.) Jun 7 at 1:59
  • Hi thank you for the recommendation but it was definitely a book rather than a comic, it's driving me insane not being able to find it lol Jun 7 at 8:10
