    There's something achingly familiar about Daniel Grigori. Mysterious and aloof, he captures Luce Price's attention from the moment she sees him on her first day at the Sword & Cross boarding school in sultry Savannah, Georgia. He's the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are all screw-ups, and security cameras watch every move.

    I will have to admit that I was drawn by the cover art. The story was not a let down, I felt that the narrator was good. The story line was interesting although sometimes frustrating, and not in a "love angst" way. I am looking forward to the next one, and I believe that is the sign of a good book. I would recommend this one.

    Romance was not part of Nora Grey's plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how hard her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch comes along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Patch draws Nora to him against her better judgment. But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure whom to trust.

    "Good story, narrator not so good"
    Overall

    As a recent connoisseur of young adult fiction, mainly the para romance type, this book was recommended to me. As I am a 30 something mom of two, the only way to "read" a book is to have one read to me. I found the narrator distracting, and sometimes horrible. At one point she had to demonstrate an Irish accent that was just this side off laughable. With that being said, I thought the story itself was pretty good, although I was having a hard time relating to the main character at times, I will chalk this up to the fact that I am not 15 anymore. I would recommend this book to others, but probably not the audio version.
