How I Got the Book: Review Copy

Summary of the Book:

My name is Anna Chekov, and for the past year, I’ve stood by and watched as all my friends got their invites to attend Helsing Academy. A place for the elite. Where the smartest, fastest, and strongest go to train in preparation to defend the world from the scourge of vampires that have taken over. But the Administration is getting desperate, and apparently “kind of smart, a little fast, and somewhat strong” is good enough, because guess who just got the invite?

This girl.

Now I have to face off against an instructor with a massive chip on his shoulder, a bunch of catty chicks who think they’re better than me (spoiler alert: they are) and a boy who treats me like the gum on the bottom of his shoe.

Oh yeah, and did I mention the whole “fighting bloodthirsty monsters” thing?

It’s gonna be a long year…

Helsing Academy is an action-packed YA/Young Adult paranormal fantasy adventure series with romantic elements.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I was not sure that I would like this book. I normally love vampire characters and don’t like the hunters all that much. This book was well done and there is a hint of romance that does not take away from the story. The world building is well done and you get a sense of being there with the characters. I enjoyed Anna she is strong but flawed and that makes her more realistic. I got to watch her grow a little as the story goes. The cliffhanger did come kind of at weird spot but still a wow at the end. I have read book by Savannah Skye before and she never fails to surprise me.

My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
