~ Kira Sutherland ~
After a near fatal accident (and getting cheated on by her 'boyfriend'), and beating up the lead cheerleader (with whom the boyfriend cheated...), and being labeled as having 'issues' in her school because she, uhm, sees ghosts, Kira is left with two choices:
1. Continue her 'therapy' (where she's told the ghost is a hallucination and also gets her legs ogled too often...)
2. Go to Starkfield Academy, a boarding school for "Crazies and Convicts" (as the social media sites call them.)
She chooses the latter...
~ Cory Rand ~
Cory Rand has not had an easy life. His mother died in a car accident when he was twelve, and so did his mother's best friend...sort of. You see, Janice made a promise to take care of Cory just before she died, and so she lingers. Undead. A ghost that watches out for him.
Brought up in an abusive home, Cory quickly falls into a life of disreputable behavior. After his third offense (which was prompted by a girl, as usual - he has a weakness) he's left with two choices:
1. Be tried as an adult and share a cell with a guy named Bubba (he thinks...)
2. Go to Starkfield Academy, which Cory is pretty sure is run by vampires. But, hey, at least he'll get an education.
He chooses the latter...
It's at Starkfield that Kira meets Cory Rand, a boy with an insatiable Rage who sees ghosts, too. As well as other things, other things from his past, things that confuse him, things like fire and witches and demons.
Things he's always ignored.

I can literally never get enough paranormal romances, so I was absolutely stoked for this!
So, the first thing about this book that really caught my eyes is the in-text pictures that are inserted right after a character is described. It has pictures that are either real people or look like real people who look EXACTLY LIKE THE DESCRIPTIONS, you guys. I freaking love it. And for those who have trouble visualizing, this book is good for you.
The best way for me to describe the vibe of this book is Vampire Diaries meets House Of Night series by P.C. & Kristin Cast. There’s mystery, then romance, and LOTS of action. This book is so acutely detailed that it really pulls you into it, especially since it’s not too long (it took me about 3-4 hours).
There’s all kinds of technical, super nerdy/super cool paranormal beings in this book that we aren’t used to. We’re used to glazed over sparkly vampires and shape shifting wolves and simple song-like spells. You guys, this book is like a freaking paranormal (generic term so as to not spoil things) textbook, but without the boringness of a textbook. It’s so suspenseful and lovely. Give it a read, for sure! 🙂 see you next week and let me know what you think!
