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 con ...more
So we've seen vampires, and we've seen lycan...but can you believe that Mari Mancusi added in another magical creature? Yup. She did! Fairies! When I initially read these books when they came out, I'll admit I didn't like the fairies that were added. But now, as an adult who constantly sees giant film and book universes I understand the need for such an addition - and it does, oddly, work!! I think it's a cute ...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
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
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
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
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
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
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
A series review:
1. Sunny McDonald was “accidentally” bitten by Magnus, the current Blood Coven Master, and nearly turned into a vampire. Magnus thought he was actually biting Rayne, her identical twin who had already gone through all the training, including giving blood to be blood matched with her new mate for eternity. Thankfully, Magnus and Sunny find the Holy Grail, which she drinks from to revert the process and remain mortal. Her blood, however, is highly ...more
Vampire, vampire slayer, fairies, Disneyland all came alive in the story, and I freaking loved the creativity! The ending, however, wasn't w ...more
This book wasn't what I would have expected.
They are from fairyland? How does this work and
Why didn't their parents ever say anything?
Does Rayne or Sunny become total fairies and if so why?
Will Rayne find and save Sunny?
What about Corbin what will happen to him?
So many questions time for book 6.
