Synopsis:
Everything feels off―especially me. I’ve returned to Katmere Academy, but I’m haunted by fragments of days I have no recollection of living and struggling to understand who, or what, I really am.

Just when I start to feel safe again, Hudson is back with a vengeance. He insists there are secrets I don’t know about, threatening to drive a wedge between Jaxon and me forever. But far worse enemies are at our doorstep.

The Circle is caught in a power play and the Vampire Court is trying to drag me out of my world and into theirs. The only thing Hudson and Jaxon agree on is that leaving Katmere would mean my certain death.

And not only am I fighting for my life, but now everyone else’s is at stake―unless we can defeat an unspeakable evil. All I know is that saving the people I love is going to require sacrifice.

Maybe more than I’m able to give.

The Crave series is best enjoyed in order. .


I was a little underwhelmed while reading the first book of the series, so I was surprised I liked this one more taking the fact that there were so many bad reviews on Goodreads.

“I’ll never make you choose, Grace. How could I when I know that you’d never choose me?”

I get why people love Jaxon so much but he’s still a little meh for me. I guess I’ll always prefer the bad boys over the brooding, good ones. But I do get people who really love him doesn’t like the direction this series is taking. I mean Jaxon is very protective and just wants to do what he thinks is best for Grace.

I loved Hudson and he made this series so much better for me. I mean he gave us so much humor instead of it all being just gloomy. I just loved his little sarcastic comments and I did find it kinda hilarious how much he hated seeing Grace and his brother. I enjoyed him helping Grace despite being “psychopath”.

I like how much self confidence Grace slowly had in Crush. She wasn’t just little human Grace anymore and she knew that she didn’t need to be protected. She didn’t grew up with knowing about supernatural like the rest of them but she didn’t let them tell her what to think either.

I have to say that I preferred Grace and Hudson together but I didn’t hate the little scenes she had with Jaxon. I might’ve thought that Jaxon was a little too controlling and thought he knew better than Grace– but he genuinely cares about her and just wants her to stay safe. I also liked Macy with Xavier and I kind of liked the idea of Jaxon and Flint weirdly enough.

All in all I loved to see the difference between two brothers and while I hate that Grace didn’t remember those months she spend with Hudson I also loved to see her slowly starting to trust him. I just like how Jaxon wanted to protect her while Hudson wanted her to be strong and push her to stand up for herself. I was more interested in all the relationships but the action was good too (and I usually hate reading about action). I liked that there was a quest instead of someone just attacking the school or them magically finding the items easily.
