Night School (Blood Coven Vampire #5)
But when Sunny starts acting stra ...more
The premise- 2 twins who are both vampires (and in one case, a slayer) find out they're OMG! fairy princesses! (WTF!?!)
And no- that's not me being glib with the chat-speak, that's REALLY how the author writes. Which is nauseatingly immature, and will date the series/book in about 5 minutes.
Not to mention, I can't figure out how someone so stupid as the narrator (Ra ...more
Warning: Spoilers! Do not click if you do not want major spoilers.
(view spoiler)[ 1. We find out at the beginning of this book that Rayne and Sunny's mom and dad were fairies that ran away from Fairyland so they could be together. The baby that their dad had with Heather while still married to their mom? Totally no ...more
I've always loved Rayne's POV as much as I love Mari's spontaneous ability to make things more interesting by the end of the books with another cliffhanger. This is no True Blood season 3.(view spoiler)[(Despite Sookie and Rayne WAS the fae royalty) (hide spoiler)]
Mari had decided that she's finished with the romance genre and head on to adventure. I've enjoyed the series from the start and Mari's attempt to trying to bond with her readers from facebook community is always a welcome. She's by fa...more
WHAT I THOUGHT:
For some odd reason I like this series, even though I have a billion issues with the writing style, the characters, the plot, and pretty much everything. I have my ups and downs with Rayne and Sunny, but over all they are good characters who have lots of potential to become great ones.
So first we found out that Rayne was planning on becoming a vampire, but instead Sunny was turned into a vampire. Then ...more
problem in book in beginning:rayne and sunny found out their parents are acturally magical fairies who escaped from a mystical Irish island, to live a more ... mortal one. And now, it seems, the other fairies back home have tracked Sunny and Rayne, and they want the family to return.
raynes and sunny's parents explained about how the twins lifes was never really normal and they had fake aunts and grandparents that their parents hired..and now the mother explains how t ...more
I believe this has been my favorite of the series for sure. I felt there was much more going on, an evil plan in the making, tricksters at their best, and so many funny antics. I was laughing out loud many times during this read. I loved this book and the series keeps getting funnier and more serious at the same time.
Long story short :
Rayne and Sunny find out their parents are fairies and their entire lives have been a ruse, running from the fairy courts. Now the fairies are after Sunny ...more
I think this was my favorite book in the series yet! This was another Rayne narrated book, and differing from my prior dislike to her character, I thought Rayne really branched out in this book. It was a book full of many twists and turns, I could never guess where Mancusi was taking readers.
The characters in Night School were a mix. I felt some of the characters were undeveloped while others really grew and developed more. Headmistress Roberta felt very unreal to me, and I didn't get m ...more
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 ...more
Once again my friends, I was hooked from the very first page. As with all the installments in this series, you can pick up the book and instantly be up to speed with what Rayne and Sunny are currently up to! Mari has a great habit of reviewing earlier events, so that no matter how long it has been since you read the last installment, you'll remember right aw ...more
Die eher ungleichen Zwillinge erfahren von ihren Eltern und ihrer Stiefmutter Heather, dass sie weitaus mehr sind, als es zu sein scheint, denn sie sind Elfenprinzessinnen. Ihre Eltern sind vor ihrer Geburt aus dem Elfenreich geflüchtet, um eine Zwangsheirat zu umgehen und um ein zivilisiertes Leben führen zu können.
Gleichzeitig erfahren sie auch die wahren Gründe, wieso ihr Vater die Familie vor einigen Jahren verlassen hat.
Als die Familie in ...more
So typical me, I happened to grab a book that is right in the middle of the series. It was on the discount rack okay! Fortunately it is written in a way that everything made sense without having any previous knowledge of what’s been going on.
I came into knowing it is about vampires (Says so on the cover) ...more
I thought this book was cute - too short though. I loved how the author changed it up and instead of the same old vampire/fairytale storyline rules she incorporated modern day into them, for example she had the vampire going to rehab at the Bloody Ford Clinic (instead of the Betty Ford Clinic) and in order to be a vampire ...more
Night School, the 5th installment in the Blood Coven series by Mari Mancusi, was a heck of a lot of fun! There's never a dull moment in The Blood Coven series and Night School was no exception.
The Long Version:
After the twins find out about their shocking fairy heritage and the danger it poses to their safety, their parents ship them off to a vampire slayer boarding school to lay low. But as the girls soon learn, Riverdale is not the safest of places and it see ...more
Because I'm burning inside.
Woah, I really like the serie but let be honest!!!
The book is stupid! Nothing is matching together.
The author should think about her writing skills sometimes...
How can I mix the twilight saga and true blood? If I Am not wrong New Moon --> 2006 and true blood as tv serie should be aired around 2008? So...can't be that the both girls are 17 ...How she mixed everything buffy , true blood, twilight saga they would be around 1 ...more
In light of the truth behind their family history, twins Sunny and Rayne are whisked away from the fae side of the family. They're relocated to the Swiss Alps to a vampire training facility, Riverdale Academy.
Rayne, believing she's the only vampire slayer, receives a rude awakening. She has a run-in with the Alpha slayers - the school's slayers. They're hoping to become recruited into Night School. Rayne has a particularly hard time fitting in, as ...more
After learning the truth about their parents, Rayne and Sunny are hidden away in Switzerland at Riverdale Academy, a boarding school dedicated to developing the finest vampire slayers in the world.
If it wasn't ironic enough that she was a vampire and a slayer, now being stuck in a school of well-trained vampire hating students really takes the cake.
When not writing about creatures of the night, Mari enjoys traveling, cooking, goth clubbing, watching cheesy horror movies, and her favorite guilty pleasure--vide ...more
