Excerpt: "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."

My Rambles: I hate the chapter titles. I find them distracting and don't see how they always fit in with the context of their chapters. It might because I'm listening to it but still. I also didn't realize how much I would dislike references to so much, like it's to the point that without ever having to say the year, you know when the story is taking place. No idea why that bothers me so much but it do. Also Grace using Jaxon's last name as often as she does is so awkward. No one does least no I know. Their immidiate "must be touching all the time" was very annoying. I know it's playing off the fact they are mates but that concept didn't even get introduced properly. I saw Lia being a bad guy right away and was very sad to be accurate. Grace's closeness with Flint is also odd to me and it feels like we will be sliding into a "why choose" type thing. I know it's a young adult series but it felt a lot younger than I've been reading lately.

Recommend: 4/10
