"In the last year, Allie's survived three arrests, two breakups and one
family breakdown. The only bright point has been her new life at
Cimmeria Academy. It's the one place she's felt she belongs. And the
fact that it's brought the dreamy Carter West into her life hasn't
hurt...But far from being a safe haven, the cloistered walls of Cimmeria
are proving more dangerous than Allie could've imagined. The students,
and faculty, are under threat and Allie's family - from her mysterious
grandma to her runaway brother - are at the centre of the storm. Allie
is going to have to choose between protecting her family and trusting
her friends. But secrets have a way of ripping even the strongest
I have read the first book in this series (Night School) and loved it! I don’t think it is absolutely necessary to read the first book, but does help you with the plot and characters.
This book goes further into the details of who Nathaniel is and what he wants. Of course it isn't short of drama or life-threatening situations
My favourite characters are probably Zoe - because she's rather awesome and every one loves a person who can kick butt - and in this book I really like Sylvain (not so much in the first book, but he is much better in the second book).
This book has the most brilliant twisty-turny plot that kept me reading and reading right until the very last word. The secrets really do make this book; there are loads of them and they are very important secrets. It did drive me insane but kept me turning the pages! The only thing that I dislike about the book was a scene involving Gabe, Allie and Jo, just because it is very sad and I would like to know more about the motives and where the hell Gabe disappeared to!
I think this book would suit people who like a mystery/romance but don't mind waiting for the answers! Overall I give this book an 8 / 10!
