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.
This book is ridiculously popular next to Hush, Hush, and I simply don't understand why. Some people even say that this is much better, but for me, it was just....meh. It was all too predictable. I mean, yeah, there's this one iota of a twist that I didn't saw coming, but that was it. I think that maybe it would be better if there's no Prologue at all; it gave the reader an inkling of what the whole plot is all about, so the end doesn't surprise the reader anymore.
And, another thing, I just don't get the shadows thingy. Maybe It's just me, I don't know. So, yeah, I'm not really sure if I'll continue onto the next book. :/
