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.
This story I grabbed as I have been interested in it for a while, and I want to see if it was as good as the hype.
Grace is on the brink of an epic adventure out in the far reaches of Alaska. The author adds in some fantastic dialogue that makes you chuckle. The author has creative chapter titles for her book. It is interesting. So Grace has moved to this academy with some of her family due to her parents passing. The guy she meets is obviously the first clue that this book is paranormal in nature, and Grace might just be a mere human she might not be, but does she know. He comes with a wired warning after his jerk face intro. Jaxson is a force so far, and when he comes to her rescue, he definitely sets up my spidey senses. Flint is a pretty boy, and he seems sweet. Katnere academy, in the middle of the Alaskan wilderness, is a castle-like none other.
I love that the author included a popular Netflix show. I mean, why not? It might hold similarities to Grace’s circumstances. But even at that, we still don’t know precisely what is being hidden at the academy. Things heat up in the time span she is there, and not her curiosity is getting the best of her. I love the Twilight reference in this story, but the characters are still vague on the paranormal in this school.
Grace is an absolute mess, but she does seem to migrate to danger. People are starting to show their true colors, including Jaxson and Macy. But I still don’t know what paranormals are in this story. I feel bad for Grace as she seems to get stuck in Jaxsons hot and cold flashes and, of course, team Jaxson and Team Flint.
Ahh, the paranormal world gets revealed finally, and this book contains all sorts of species. I won’t reveal them all as I have the fun of reading this was figuring it out. Once you know, the first part of this book makes more sense. However, there is still a nagging question about why Jaxson commands so much respect?
Finally, we get to the real romance of this story, and oh, it is swoon-worthy! Jaxson is a force to be recommended when he finally makes up his mind.
This book gets even more intense and action-packed toward the end of it. Omg!! Just as I thought we were done with one crisis, the next one happens. I’m surprised by the turn of events. This book ends on a massive cliffhanger. I’m dying to read more.
Grace and Jaxson are magnetic in this book. Their romance rivals some of the great paranormal ones. I loved every minute of Grace’s broken, stubborn, teenage self. Jaxson honestly came off as a jerk most of the time, but he was gentle with Grace. This book so didn’t go the way I thought it would, and I loved the surprises in it. I like the themes in this story overcoming grief, fighting for love, protection. This was a very YA read no steam in this story. I can’t wait to read for in this series. I want to know what happens to Jaxson and Grace.
I do like the exclusive look into Jaxson’s point of view at the end of the book. This takes us back to the first day of school but from Jaxson and the order’s point of view. So this seems to be bits and pieces of his viewpoint with some of the more intense action scenes from the story.
