Summary ~ from goodreads~
At Barinkoff Academy, there's only one rule: no students on campus after curfew. Phoenix McKay soon finds out why when she is left behind at sunset. A group calling themselves night students threaten to taste her flesh until she is saved by mysterious, alluring boy. With his pale skin, dark eyes and mesmerizing voice, Demitri is both irresistible and impenetrable. He warns her to stay away from his dangerous world of flesh eaters. Unfortunately, the gorgeous and playful Luka has other plans.
When Phoenix is caught between her physical and her emotional attraction, she becomes the keeper of a deadly secret that will rock the foundations of an ancient civilization living beneath Barinkoff Academy. Phoenix doesn't realize until it is too late that the closer she gets to both Demitri and Luka the more she is plunging them all into a centuries old feud.
I loved this book and enjoyed the journey reading this story. The first couple of chapters definitely grabbed my attention. I had to know where and how this story was going to play out. I was pleasantly surprised on the development of the paranormal characters. I thought I knew the path the story was leading me, but then the story would take a turn I was not expecting and it kept me in suspense. Kate Evangelista does a great job creating and telling the story.
After Phoenix's mother dies of a incurable disease her relationship with her father becomes strained. She is quick in making major life decisions because of what she has experienced in her life. Phoenix discovers a secret group that comes out only at night and exists under the ground. She is intrigued by her encounter with Demitri and Luka, and wants to know why they are so dangerous to be around. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a paranormal romance with a twist on paranormal characters. This story had a good ending that I did not see coming. Can't wait to read more of this world that Kate has created.
