Rating 9/10What a surprise! I went into this thinking that I would be disappointed, as nothing could possibly live up to the Vampire Academy series. I was wrong.This novel was just as good and it has left me feeling like a kid in a candy store whose favourite sweets are out of stock. I can’t wait for the sequel and I am sure it will live up to its predecessor.Sydney was a very relatable, yet interesting character. And Adrian, oh Adrian what a fantastic and infuriating character (unquestionably one of my favourite characters ever)! Jill and Eddie were also great additions as Main characters and did not disappoint. Even the minor characters were rich with detail.Sure I could see most things coming (the big plot details), but the little surprises and plot twists kept me on my toes. They say it’s about the little things in life and I have always thought that is what delights me about Richelle Mead’s writing.I also read this Novel surprisingly quickly and most of it in one day, and found myself sad when it was over. This will definitely be one of those series I collect and put right next to my VA books.PS: Read Vampire Academy before you read this Novel.
