Synopsis:

Vampires, Slayers and…FAIRIES? Sunny and Rayne McDonald are about to get SCHOOLED.

After their parents’ shocking revelation about their fae heritage and an attack on their lives, the McDonald twins find themselves on the run—forced to hide out at Riverdale Academy , a boarding school for vampire slayers, deep in the Swiss Alps. With no cells, no internet, and no way to contact their vampire boyfriends—the twins are on their own.


Being a vampire stuck in a school full of slayers isn’t easy. Especially with no blood substitute stocked on campus. Soon Rayne finds herself succumbing to her bloodlust and losing control—especially around the arrogant, but devastatingly handsome Corbin Billingsworth the Third—who isn’t sure whether he wants to kiss her…or kill her.

But when Sunny starts acting strange, Rayne realizes Riverdale Academy may be hiding some deadly secrets of its own—leading to a showdown in Fairyland that may cost the twins their lives.

My rating: ★★★★☆

After the fairy attack at the apartment, the twins are sent to a slayer school where they will be "safe." Right, like Rayne, a VAMPIRE could be safe in a school where they train kids to KILL vampires. Rayne will be in soooo much trouble if someone finds out she's, you know, a vamp.

Anyway, now its Rayne's turn to be falling for a guy who's not her boyfriend. In this book, I was totally not okay with this other guy! I didn't like him! He was so irrelevant to me that I don't even remember his name (though it probably started with a C...I think)! And, I mean, she has Jareth who is just sweet and effing amazing!

Anyway (again), one thing leads to another and Rayne finds herself racing against time to rescue Sunny who is in a whole lot of Fairy trouble!

Oh, again with the fairy stuff. I just think all this new info regarding the fairies is just too much! The vamp slayers and werewolves were okay, but I really wish the fairies weren't thrown in there too! it feels a little bit overwhelming. But I guess I understand why the author threw that stuff in there...it kinda sets up the scene for the next book. But I really wish the fairies would be kept to a minimum.

In the last few books I've been more of a Jareth fan than a Magnus fan. Jareth was a bit of a jerk in this book, but I still love him :) And Magnus...well, this book reminded me why I love Magnus as well ;)
