Alice Dibble, about to start high-school, is accepted into the prestigious Nocturnal Academy, a school for supernatural creatures. Alice is both overjoyed and horrified to discover that she is a vampire.
To make things even more interesting, her worst enemy, Toby Thompson, has also been selected. He is a werewolf
But before Alice can even start at the Nocturnal Academy she must come to terms with her new identity, defeat Toby’s old bully friends who have discovered the truth about her, and expose a local coven that wants to raise the Demon-Lord Vladrakov.
I really enjoyed this book. Bits of it reminded me of “Harry Potter”, but for the most part it has a charm all it’s own. It was weird reading that high school started at age 13, and I’m not sure where in the world it takes place. I’m guessing the UK somewhere as mothers are referred to as “mum”. It is the first in a series, and was good enough I will be picking up more of them. If you like fantasy books that contain werewolves, vampires, nature spirits, demons and other creatures of that ilk, and enjoy reading about magical schools and adventures, this is the series for you.
