Wauw! I just finished listning to this book and I absolutely loved it! It's very well written. It also reminded me of Harry Potter by the way. Also gossiping students locked up in an acient (looking) building, magic powers and big threads to the main characters.
I really like that the girl who's tells the story, Rose, is a non-magic kick-ass guardian who trains every day. I like tough (and ruthless!) heroins. :)
Altough, unlike Harry Potter which I once red to 10 and 12 year olds, I'm not very comfortable with the idea of 13 year old boys reading this stuff too. There is a some talk about sex, so-called 'bloodwhores' and at some point we have some nicely described nudity. Further, we have some dead animals, some dead vampires, very much passing out, not too shocking. It is a story about special teens, but not for teens who aren't at least a little mature.
Oh, the story is also very funny because told by Rose. Your sort of in her head, and her head is pretty amusing.
Anyway, a perfect 10! (in US straigt A?)
