My whole world changed when I stepped inside the academy. Nothing is right about this place or the other students in it. Here I am, a mere mortal among gods…or monsters. I still can’t decide which of these warring factions I belong to, if I belong at all. I only know the one thing that unites them is their hatred of me.
Then there’s Jaxon Vega. A vampire with deadly secrets who hasn’t felt anything for a hundred years. But there’s something about him that calls to me, something broken in him that somehow fits with what’s broken in me.
Which could spell death for us all.
Because Jaxon walled himself off for a reason. And now someone wants to wake a sleeping monster, and I’m wondering if I was brought here intentionally—as the bait.
What I thought
I was sent a copy of this book from Megan Beatie Communications and Entangled Teen for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I thought that this was just going to be a vampire book but I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered that it is so much more than that . The best way to describe this book is this is what happens when Twilight and Monster High have a baby. You have your instalove like Twilight but this girl has a back bone. She fights for herself and does not wait around for someone to come and save her, even though the odds are completely against her.
This book takes place in Alaska, and if there is any supernatural creatures out there that is the best place for them to hide out in plain sight. lol I said I was never going there after watching 30 days of Night back in the day and once again I am affirming that I have no plans to visit sorry.
This was such a fun and easy read that I was able to complete it in only two days. This book is over 500 pages long and I am working full time so finishing a book that size in two days is during the week is almost unheard of for me.
The ending…I did not see coming. I’m not talking about the reveal of who the evil twisted person is I actually had that one guessed, but the very end. I was shocked. And honestly that does not happen very much with YA anymore. I mean I didn’t even know that could come into play.
I can not wait for the next one to come out. Today I found out that the publication of book 2 has been moved up to September of this year. I am super excited to get my hands on book two.
If you like books that are set in a school setting or books dealing with the supernatural. Then you should give this one a shot.
My Rating: /5
