Premise fell right up my alley but at the wrong time. I was not interested in the characters after the first 75 pages and really didn't care enough to complete the story though I wanted to read the series before watching the movie.

If you enjoyed this book and series, great! Please continue to support this author in any way you can! ( )

Yes, this book took me a while (9 days) and there were a few days I didn't read it, I believe 3 or so. Don't know, but this technically-if you take away the days I did NOT read the book-probably took me 6 or 7 days to read.

Anyway, as for my review, this book was pretty entertaining and enjoyable! It follows Rose Hathaway, a half human half vampire that's been on the run for 2 years with Lissa Dragonmir, a Morori Princess that she was set out to protect.

However, their plans are cut short when they find themselves dragged back to St Vladimir's Academy. Am the story begins from there.

It deals with topics of bullying and slut shaming, as well as their being a forbidden romance or student mentor relationship in the works with Dimitri and Rose. However, there's also Mason too-but who knows how that conflict is going to resolve.

I remember seeing the first few minutes of the movie on Netflix and never going back to it, this was before I read the books. Now that I've finished book 1, it's definitely very different from the film and quite fun to read.

I do plan on reading the 2nd book in the series, Frostbite. ( )

I wasn't going to read this series this year. But when I finished Georgina Kincaid audiobooks, I want to listen to the audiobook of this series too.

The audiobook was awful. Gosh, I can't believe I'm saying that about a book that I've been reading yearly for a decade. I wished I had never listened to that audiobook!

Since I already started the audiobook, I thought I might as well reread the whole series in physical format.

*I saw that Frostbite's narrator was a different person. I'm kinda scared to listen to it, though. I don't want to hear Adrian being voiced by a female. It would shatter my view of Adrian. XD

I guess, I'll just reread my paperback and shut up.
