Goodreads Synopsis:

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 Review:

            Surprisingly, it took me a while to finish this book. The lack of interest and a boring plot were the two main factors that stalled me from finishing. However, after finishing, I think I was even more confused than before I started. The plot was okay as far as the action and drama, the pace was slow, and the characters were egh.
      Specifically speaking, I didn't like Christophe's character at all. I want to like him, but his characterization was skewed. One minute he is a dangerously sexy rebel who seems to care about Dru, and the next minute he's a complete douche-bag. Another thing that totally creeped me out was the fact that Christophe had a thing for Dru's mom. Um... can you say Ewwwwwwww!! After finding that little detail out, I lost further interest in this book and I honestly couldn't care less about the characters. However, Graves, the lovable werewolf is beginning to grow some balls. This is great since he isn't doing the whole puppy dog thing with Dru anymore. That's another thing I didn't like about Dru. One minute she is all over Graves and the next she's friend zoning him. Like make up your mind woman!  

            The ending wasn't all that exciting either. Like the previous book it just simply ended without giving the reader any details of the plot. However, there were some improvements in the action department, but not all that much. Hopefully, the third book will be better and the characters become stronger.
