She's no angel . . .
Poor Dru Anderson. Her parents are long gone, her best friend is a werewolf, and she's just learned that the blood flowing through her veins isn't entirely human. (So what else is new?)
Now Dru is stuck at a secret New England Schola for other teens like her, and there's a big problem? she's the only girl in the place. A school full of cute boys wouldn't be so bad, but Dru's killer instinct says that one of them wants her dead. And with all eyes on her, discovering a traitor within the Order could mean a lot more than social suicide. . .
Can Dru survive long enough to find out who has betrayed her trust-and maybe even her heart?

My Take:

When you know things go bump in the night the only thing you have in mind is surviving. For Dru Anderson knowing your one of those things is just the start of it, her best friend is a werewolf named Graves and of course Christophe who is also a djamphir. Problems don't just start with fact werewolves and vampires don't mix well she has a whole new set of problems. Being in a school full of boys seems like a good idea right? Wrong!!!! Because of who she is being allowed to fight with the boys is out of the question. She is stuck in normal classes and the only she is learning is what she already had guessed. She has so many questions and the school doesn't seem to care enough to answer and when Christophe finally shows up after he sent her to the school, he tells her that she needs to be a good little girl and not to trust people. The same people who treat as if she is too delicate, she must not trust, and to make it more worst her stay their seemed to be monitored and of course someone went into her room while she was in class. The only thing to make it worst is that people want her gone from the school and at the mercy to the one who killed her mom. 

When a break in occurs Dru makes the only decision  she has always made, run like you mean it. Running is something that Dru knows how to do, but this time she is leaving someone behind. Graves has been with her, he protects her from basically anything. But because he seems to love being at the school, she decides she needs to leave him because they are after her not him. The only thing she regretted was not saying goodbye to Graves, her best friend who she has no clue how to act in front of all of a sudden. Getting out isn't as easy as it should be and what makes it harder is the fire and of course not being able to breath right can stop anyone. When she wakes what Dru learns is turning back isn't happening and trusting anyone is hard, now on the run to another place that is safe. With her is a bunch of wolves who don't trust her only one of them Graves and also Christophe. They need to keep a low profile and try to get to safety as quickly as possible. 

Try getting to a even bigger school is not easy at all for Dru and being the only girl gets all the guys to act well differently towards her. Who said high school isn't hard enough, for Dru its only the beginning. I actually loved this because Dru is getting to know herself at the same time trying to figure out how her life got that place. She is also figuring how much she really cares for Graves and how much she is willing to keep him safe. There is also Christophe who is easily believed as the one to always be their t protect her, so life is interesting for Dru and even though every clue is presented to her about the death of her mother, Dru must also piece together the reason behind the attacks at the school. Also figure out why she is really important, to her she is just Dru nothing else, so it will be fun to see how she finds herself as I read the series. 

5/5 stars
