Having said that, the book is okay. It's another YA vampire trilogy that will probably appeal to fans of Twilight and other similar YA stories. The setting is fun (a preppy boarding school where the students all have strange "gifts") and of course there's the difficult-to-manage love affair between mortal girl and immortal vampire-hunky-guy. The book is like eating candy. You can tear through it quickly. It's fun and doesn't tackle any themes that are too serious or depressing. There's the inevitable romance but it's not particularly graphic and, in fact, in some ways there's a distinct lack of chemistry between the romantic leads, or at least there's very little lead-up to the relationship. They simply meet, are attracted to each other, face impossible odds, fall in love, and that's that.
Despite the fact that the book is fluffy and somewhat derivative, it did spawn two already-published sequels (Mirage and Eternal),neither of which I have read but both of which get reasonable to good reviews on Amazon and Goodreads, so the series obviously has its fans. Don't pick up this book expecting it to rock your world, but it's a solid, light, fun read for those who enjoyed series like Twilight and Hush, Hush. (And there's even a cameo appearance by a werewolf!)
