Everything feels off—especially me. I’ve returned to Katmere Academy, but I’m haunted by fragments of days I have no recollection of living and struggling to understand who, or what, I really am.
Just when I start to feel safe again, Hudson is back with a vengeance. He insists there are secrets I don’t know about, threatening to drive a wedge between Jaxon and me forever. But far worse enemies are at our doorstep.
The Circle is caught in a power play and the Vampire Court is trying to drag me out of my world and into theirs. The only thing Hudson and Jaxon agree on is that leaving Katmere would mean my certain death.
And not only am I fighting for my life, but now everyone else’s is at stake—unless we can defeat an unspeakable evil. All I know is that saving the people I love is going to require sacrifice.
Maybe more than I’m able to give.
Amazon Link: Crush (Crave #2)
Author: Tracy Wolff
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance
Rating: 5/5 stars
The first book of the Crave series was part tribute, part gentle parody of Twilight as it followed the budding romance between a human girl and a vampire boy. Except for the twist at the ending, when it turns out the girl wasn’t so human after all. I knew then that I had to read more of the series.
This book upended a lot of the assumptions from the first book and Grace really comes into her own power. Now that she knows about her own magic, she can stand up for herself more. I love watching her attitude change from an insecure girl into a badass. And I was happy to see her get away from the not-very-healthy relationship with her first boyfriend, Jaxon.
It was also great to expand the world and learn more about the magical races beyond the first book. There is way more out there than just one school filled with supernatural teens. With hints of even more to come, I loved the development here.
But the best part was the ending, which still surprised me. I won’t wait long to see what happens next!
If you liked the first book in this series, I would say prepare yourself for a lot of changes in this book. But if you thought the first book was a little too cliche, then you’ll really enjoy seeing it turned on its head in this second book.
