Book Summary
At Barinkoff Academy, there's only one rule: no students on campus after curfew. Phoenix McKay soon finds out why when she is left behind at sunset. A group calling themselves night students threaten to taste her flesh until she is saved by a mysterious, alluring boy. With his pale skin, dark eyes, and mesmerizing voice, Demitri is both irresistible and impenetrable. He warns her to stay away from his dangerous world of flesh eaters. Unfortunately, the gorgeous and playful Luka has other plans. When Phoenix is caught between her physical and her emotional attraction, she becomes the keeper of a deadly secret that will rock the foundations of an ancient civilization living beneath Barinkoff Academy. Phoenix doesn't realize until it is too late that the closer she gets to both Demitri and Luka the more she is plunging them all into a centuries old feud.
My Review
When I saw the name Demitri followed by boarding school, I thought VA and I got nervous. Let’s just say, you won’t be thinking of that series for very long. My only complaint about this book is that it ends and there doesn’t appear to be a series to follow.

It was a good reading week and this book was no different. I swallowed it whole hoping it to never end. For a semi-love triangle, but not really, I loved both guys. The characters were intriguing. Even Phoenix who didn’t seem to have a care for her life grew on me.

The world building was interesting and a fresh twist on what some would call the walking dead, lol. But I won’t say anymore and let you read to find out yourself exactly what I’m referring to.

The storyline wasn’t wholly unique yet, I was still drawn to continue reading through the night. Which is always a good thing. There is a unique twist to the story. One that is the absolute reverse of many stories. Again, I hope I’ve intrigued you enough to go pick up this one. I really like it.

Overall, do I recommend. Heck yes! Pick this one up. I don’t think you will be disappointed.

My Book Boyfriend is Demitri.
