Source: I received a copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book whatsoever; it's my true opinion only.
I received a physical copy of this from Hodder. Thank you to the publisher for giving me a chance to read and review this.
First of all, I will be honest: there are similarities between this and Vampire Academy, however, because I was so immersed into the story and what was going on, it didn't bother me. I sort of just shrugged it off.
Things will be similar between stories. Books have been around forever. It's so hard to come up with an original idea these days that doesn't have anything to do with other books.
I LOVE Vampire Academy and I also LOVED this book. It is addictive and I found it so hard to put it down. I actually fell asleep with the book in my hands. I STILL technically didn't put it down ;)
Having said all this, there are differences. There are twists in the story that do complicate things.
There is a main protagonist who you will love. There is Aidan who ANYONE will fall in love with. A guy best friend who you can't help but adore, and a powerful guy who is intimidating and adorable like a kitten at the same time. So basically SO many reasons to fall in love with this book.
Alex is a great main character. I kept on imagining if Rose from Vampire Academy and Alex meet, their friendship would be awesome. She is strong, determined and just amazing.
I fell in love with Aidan. I loved every scene that he was in.
This book was a great start to a series and I can't wait to continue!
It deserves all the stars I gave it.
Fans of Jennifer L. Armentrout need to read this.
I hope you have enjoyed this review.
Happy reading =)
