Ok, so I'm a paranormal boarding school stalker.
You know it. I know it. Shoot me.


Before I start with the part that is actually concerned with my reaction to the book, let me get one thing out first.


What do I think about preconceived notions about new books.




So let me get this straight.

You see that the series is entitled "Angel Academy" and think "Oh shit another school book" before you read it.

You liked both Cassandra Clare's "The Mortal Instruments" and Richelle Mead's "Vampire Academy" but you instantly hate this one because:

a)the heroine is a redhead with green eyes, and
b)the heroine has enough wit and brains to hammer Rose Hathaway.

So, again I ask, you loved both afore mentioned series, but somehow this one pulls at a heartstring. Again. BEFORE giving it a chance.





I seriously can't deal with these kinds of things.


Now on to more cheerful thoughts.


Everything about his story was very nicely put together, executed and presented. The writing was more than intriguing and the plot was a spiralling mass of action, romance, fun and unexpected twists. More like tornados than twists.

Jack is one of those book boyfriends you can't help but want to do unspeakable things to.


He stood out like a Greek god in an Eskimo village.





I'm sorry but that's what popped into my head.



And then Amelie.








“Very subtle, vampire.” I kicked the back of his seat. “If bribery doesn’t work, just call your bodyguards and have them tie him up for you. I’ll bet you’ve spent your fair share of evenings in that situation too, huh?”
Luc met my glare in the rearview mirror. “Must you speak?”
“Bite me.”
He sneered. “I don’t fancy your type.”
“Why, too sober? Too much self-esteem?”
Jack frowned at us across the blue light of the console. “Can
you two at least pretend to cooperate? We’re on the same team
here.”
“Yeah, Dracu-Luc,” I said. “Play nice or I’ll ride with the
werewolf.”
“I’ll give you fifty quid if you do,” Luc offered.



****



God must hate me. It was the only explanation.
Seriously. All I’d ever wanted was to be a Guardian. I wanted to kill demons, protect humankind, do all the things I was made to do. But, in the space of a week, I’d been reduced to a blood-tainted, broken-souled, half-bonded, fully-doomed fashion victim with a
ruthless serial killer for a sister.
What was next, a plague of frogs?




I mean when you put magic, supernatural beings and bondmates into one concoction you're killing me.



It’s weird how death doesn’t come all at once. It doesn’t ride in on a stallion, swinging a scythe and yelling about the apocalypse.
Real death teases. It prods. It inches up behind you with its claws out, and laughs while you bleed.
I cradled Jack in my lap as his soul unwound itself from mine in soft twitches. The space it left behind felt cold and damp, how a cloud might feel before a snowfall.







One word. FANTASTIC.
