Wow this series.. I got completely sucked in to the world that Higginson created.

Eden is a 16-year-old girl who, for reasons unknown to her, keeps blowing up (or flooding or creating a plague of crazy insects) at her high schools and is forced to transfer. She lives with her Aunt Syl and eventually gets placed at Kingsley high school. Her first day she runs into Kiran and Talbott, also their first day. Kiran is extremely swoon-worthy (blonde, messy hair, turquoise eyes..) and extremely cocky. Eden sits next to Kiran in their first class and for some reason her blood goes crazy and she passes out and is caught by, who else, Kiran. She also befriends Lilly, who seems to be a loner.

Okay, enough set up...

Instead of having a normal high school PE class, the entire class goes on a camping trip. Eden and Lilly pair up with Kiran and Talbott and go for a walk.. They end up being stalked by strange hooded men and are attacked. Eden, finally realizing what is happening, discovers there is magic inside of her (as well as the strange men) and somehow sucks all of the magic out of them. She believes to have killed them and eventually ends up back at home.

Enter Principal Amory Saint. He explains to Eden that she is not going crazy and that she is actually an Immortal and has magic in her veins and that Kingsley is a school for immortals. There are four different types of immortals - witch, titan, medium, and shape-shifter. Eden is told that shape-shifters are the outcasts of the immortal society and Lilly was one of them. Lilly is sent to Romania to stand trial just for being a shape-shifter and hiding her identity. She also finds out that Kiran is the prince of the immortals and his father, Lucan is the king.

A new student named Avalon St. Andrews begins at Kingsley and immediately befriends Eden. Kiran continues to *stalk* Eden and their love begins to blossom.

Now for spoilers and more good stuff. :)
(view spoiler)

I highly recommend this series. There are several grammatical errors that I was able to get over because the story was so captivating.
Definitely continue to the second book because I guarantee that once you make it through that one you won't be able to stop.
