My whole world changed when I stepped inside the academy. Nothing is right about this place or the other students in it. Here I am, a mere mortal among gods…or monsters. I still can’t decide which of these warring factions I belong to, if I belong at all. I only know the one thing that unites them is their hatred of me.
Then there’s Jaxon Vega. A vampire with deadly secrets who hasn’t felt anything for a hundred years. But there’s something about him that calls to me, something broken in him that somehow fits with what’s broken in me.
Which could spell death for us all.
Because Jaxon walled himself off for a reason. And now someone wants to wake a sleeping monster, and I’m wondering if I was brought here intentionally—as the bait.
I’ve seen this series around but didn’t actually manage to pick it up until now. I was told it would be Twilight 2.0 and it did give me Twilight vibes at times but I wouldn’t say it was that similar.
I didn’t go to Crave with a lot of expectations but the whole romance with Grace and Jaxon felt little empty to me. I like both characters but I just didn’t feel the spark between the two while reading. Jaxon was broody and Grace was just trying to deal with her loss while everyone were keeping secrets from her. I liked how he went from anting her to draw as little attention to herself as possible to wanting to be always close to her.
I have to say that I liked the friendships in this book, even if Grace’s cousin was a little too much to me at times.
All in all I liked it but it wasn’t something I would mind never continuing either. I liked Legacies vibes it gave me (all kinds of supernaturals living in a boarding school) since Grace liked the show but the world didn’t hook me up that much. I enjoyed reading about Grace figuring out everything and I really enjoyed her interacting with her cousin, Jaxon and even Flint. I’m really interested to find out more about Grace and maybe even about her parents.
