Summary of the Book:

Unlike many high school heroines in fantasy books, I always knew I was not ordinary. Far from it.

Since I was two, I have been seeing angels and demons. Given the gift of battle as a warrior, my role as a slayer often interferes with my role as a normal girl. So no, I was never a typical girl who had just found out she was heir to some magical family or something like that. I’ve been “gifted” practically all my life.

So when my ordinary family moved us to San Francisco to a new school where my father teaches, I didn’t think much of the school. Shadowlight Academy, the most exclusive and posh prep academy for the super rich. I thought I would be there to slay the evil like an undercover superhero amongst the ordinary.

I just didn’t think the ordinary would all be extremely unordinary. Especially the three most popular kids in school. Then there’s the hot brooding rebel boy who didn’t seem to fit in, too. Everyone here has secrets, and I am determined to find out what, before it kills me…the entire Academy and even the world.

Okay, I might be dramatizing a bit, but yes, from what I’ve barely seen…it could be that big. Better get my game gear on and my entire armor on, because this is going to be one epic battle. But who can I trust?

The Beautiful Ones, which rule Shadowlight Academy is known to be both beautiful yet wicked. They’re fascinated with me as I am of them. But who or what are they really, and why do I feel drawn to them like a fly to a spider? Can I escape their beautiful web before I am trapped forever? Do I want to?

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I have tp say when I started this book I had to put it down a couple of times. My mind was thinking of all the things that could happen. Some of which happened and some that did not. It had me very edgy the whole way through. I have picked my favorite and some of the others have me still wondering what is to come next. There is a lot of mystery to the characters that I am needing answers too. I am still wondering what to think about this book. It is the first in a series and I have to sort it all out in my head. Just enough twists and turns and surprises to keep me guessing. Now I want the second one. I need the light to see through the darkness.

My Rating of the Book: 5 Stars
