Synopsis from Goodreads: 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.


In this post, I'm just going to compare my thoughts from the first time I read it to the thought I have now after reading it a second time, so this isn't a review :)

I read this book for the first time back in 2009. It was OK. I didn't really like it that much, and I gave it two feet, because Luce annoyed me, the plot bored me, and quite frankly, there were way too many similarities to Twilight. But now, reading it again, I've bumped up my rating to three feet, because this time around, it was better. Not by loads, but enough to make me reconsider my rating.
Luce still annoyed me, though not nearly as much. She was still whiny and a little blonde at times, but she didn't get on my nerves quite so much. Maybe this was because I knew that was what she was going to be like, or I just had a change of heart, I have no idea...
The plot was still good because I'd completely forgotten what happened. About three quarters of the way through though, I began to get bored, because I started to remember what happened. I'm glad I pushed through though, the ending was good and there were a couple of things that I think are important for the next books that I'd forgotten, and so I was glad for the reminder, which is why I reread the book.
So that's it, there wasn't much that differed to the first time I read it, it still wasn't amazing, but it wasn't bad either :) Will move onto Torment again in a couple of books time, and then I'll read Passion, which is waiting to be read in my room :)

  2. I gave up on this book. It just didn't work for me. So far it's the only book that I've completely given up on this year.

*I am no longer accepting blog awards :( I do not have time to go through all the things that come with it, and though I'm honoured you thought of me, I'm sure you can find someone who will love it, and be able to carry out the rules :)
