My best friend has been trying to get me to read this series for years now, and I regret not taking her advice sooner. This book is a really good start to the series.
The authors do a great job with the characters and setting. The vampire school sounds really cool! I love that the authors did their research regarding the religion aspect. If that was off, it would’ve ruined the whole story for me.
I like Zoey as a character. The way she talks and the way her thought process works is very true to her age (16). Her friends are pretty great too. I was happy for her that she made friends at the new school. Damien is my favorite. He’s smart, witty, and gay. Excellent!
The book has quite a bit of action and magic, which kept the story interesting. I really liked seeing Zoey’s affinities manifest. She even gets a potential boyfriend. There’s some swearing, incase that bothers anyone.
I’d recommend it to anyone who likes young adult paranormal, magic, and/or vampire books.
