My whole world changed when I stepped inside the academy. Nothing is right about this place or the other students in it. Here I am, a mere mortal among gods…or monsters. I still can’t decide which of these warring factions I belong to, if I belong at all. I only know the one thing that unites them is their hatred of me.
Then there’s Jaxon Vega. A vampire with deadly secrets who hasn’t felt anything for a hundred years. But there’s something about him that calls to me, something broken in him that somehow fits with what’s broken in me.
Which could spell death for us all.
Because Jaxon walled himself off for a reason. And now someone wants to wake a sleeping monster, and I’m wondering if I was brought here intentionally—as the bait.
I really enjoyed this one! However, It seems like I’m one of the few. I would really call this Twilight 2020. Not because of the plot, but because of the cover and the way that it grabbed my attention. I haven’t flown through a big book like this since the Twilight series. It was a great way to escape real life for me just like Twilight did when I was about 16. So enough about the comparisons, let me give my thoughts on Crave.
This was set in Alaska and takes place in a boarding school. It really gave off classic YA paranormal vibes. The writing was easy to read and that made it easy to immerse myself in the story. There is something classic about vampires and I enjoyed reading about them again.
I enjoyed our characters Grace and Jaxon. They gave off the right amount of chemistry and teenage angst. And oh goodness was there angst!
“He turns me inside out with a look, destroys me with a kiss.”
I also enjoyed the plot. I had my suspicions about who was trying to kill Grace, but the execution was one that I didn’t see coming. Really, my only gripe about this book was that it was way too long! Some things could have shortened or taken out completely.
All in all, I enjoyed this and had a good time reading it. I’m shocked at the ending and definitely will be anticipating book two next year.
