So vampires are coming back in the book community and I am honestly not mad about that. I love vampires and this is the 3rd vampire book I have read in the last month.

I enjoyed this book for the most part. Grace’s parents die so she moves to a boarding school where her uncle is the head minister and her cousin attends. When she gets there everyone is eyeing her and acting like they all have a secret.. Well they all do. It’s a school for paranormal people! I have a little bit of an issue here. Why did her uncle think it was a good idea to bring a human girl into a school for paranormals? I do not understand his logic there. But anyways.. Grace is drawn to dark, mysterious Jaxon. He tries to push her away, saying he is dangerous to be around. And here is my other issue.. the beginning of this book was Twilight.. Don’t get me wrong. I thoroughly enjoyed Twilight. It started my love of paranormal. But this book was entirely too close to that story. I really started to enjoy the book more towards the end. There were a few things I didn’t see coming!

This book was good! I enjoyed listening to the story. I liked the characters. It did read a tad juvenile but I am also 30.. so take that how you like. Am I going to read the next book? 100% yes. Do I think that you need to run out and buy this book? nah… unless you want to reread Twilight with a little bit of a twist.

This book is part of the Midnight Coven Universe. It is a novella and can be read as a stand alone. I enjoyed this book. I will be honest and tell you that I have read only one other book in this universe. But you really don’t have to read them all. I don’t feel like I missed out on anything. This book is absolutely a stand alone. It took me a little bit to get into because the storyline skipped from present to 3-5 years ago and that was a little bit hard to follow until I got the hang of it. Hayden is a tortured knight who is ordered to kill Katherine.. only he can’t kill her. Hayden fights to keep her safe and they grow close and fall in love. There is so much more to this story. I had a hard time with the timeline jumping around but it honestly gave us back story and made a short novella seem longer and filled with more story. If you love hot vampire romances, I highly recommend this book.

I both liked and hated this book. I am extremely happy that Jane and V figured out their shit.. even though they have done that before and fell back into disaster so lets hope it sticks this time. But I generally love them as a couple and as separate people. So I am happy that they are happy. And I am happy that we kind of see a “sweeter” side to V. Sweeter isn’t the right word. But I can’t think of what exactly I mean. He becomes more open in this book. So yay.

Now for Sola and Assail.. I just did not like them. Assail.. well I guess I kind of liked him. He was sweet and never failed in his love for Sola. I mean he lied and hid things but he was always up front with his feelings so thats good. Sola.. oh Sola. I loved her before this book. She was strong and her own person. In this book she was a bitch. I hated that she refused to go back to see a dying Assail. She got better int he middle. But then when she found out about vampires.. I wanted to kill her. She was terrible. So yeah I just wasn’t a fan of them here. I hope in a book later on will help me like them better.

Besides the characters.. the story was good. The new evil is interesting… a little creepy with Throe basically fucking a book but to each their own. I hated how this book ended. There are so so many questions. I feel like nothing was resolved. Hell even Sola and Assail’s relationship isn’t perfectly resolved. At least not in my eyes. They are together but I just feel like the end was so rushed. After I finished I didn’t feel satisfied with the ending. I will say that I am SO offing excited for Murhder!!!
