There's something achingly familiar about Daniel Grigori.
Mysterious and aloof, he captures Luce Price's attention from the moment she sees him on her first day at the Sword & Cross boarding school in sultry Savannah, Georgia. He's the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are all screw-ups, and security cameras watch every move.
Even though Daniel wants nothing to do with Luce-and goes out of his way to make that very clear-she can't let it go. Drawn to him like a moth to a flame, she has to find out what Daniel is so desperate to keep secret . . . even if it kills her.
The blurb on the back of the book really piqued my attention and had me buying the book, well that and the cover; it's a gorgeous cover. I really enjoyed the beginning of the book, the prologue was really well done in capturing the reader's attention. However after that I thought the story was really slow moving. I felt like I kept waiting for something to happen. There was a lot of leading up to... and that's it.
I really liked Luce and her friends. I thought Arianne was great and Penn was adorable. I'm still on the fence about how I feel about Daniel. I feel like he could have been written a little better. For me is was hard to love him the way I can most male leads.
For me there were a few plot holes which maybe will be addressed in the next book. Overall I didn't love this book, but I didn't hate it. I will probably read Torment but not right away.
Happy Reading Everyone!
