My whole world changed when I stepped inside the academy. Nothing is right about this place or the other students in it. Here I am, a mere mortal among gods…or monsters. I still can’t decide which of these warring factions I belong to, if I belong at all. I only know the one thing that unites them is their hatred of me.
Then there’s Jaxon Vega. A vampire with deadly secrets who hasn’t felt anything for a hundred years. But there’s something about him that calls to me, something broken in him that somehow fits with what’s broken in me.
Which could spell death for us all.
Because Jaxon walled himself off for a reason. And now someone wants to wake a sleeping monster, and I’m wondering if I was brought here intentionally—as the bait.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Being the new kid is hard enough for the heroine of this irresistible modern fantasy, even before she discovers her new school is full of vampires and monsters. After Grace’s parents die in a mysterious car accident, she moves from California to Alaska to live with her uncle, the headmaster at a prestigious academy. We were hooked by Grace’s dangerous and provocative relationship with sexy, menacing vampire Jaxon Vega. But Tracy Wolff’s heroine is far from a pawn in this supernatural romance—she’s an awesomely strong main character who takes control of their relationship. The chapters from bad boy Jaxon’s point of view also give him that much more depth. This thrilling start to Wolff’s Crave series is like the best elements of Harry Potter and Twilight combined. It’s so much more than your typical girl-meets-vampire tale.
I wholeheartedly got this book thinking it to be a knock off version of twilight. Needless to say I was blown away. Twilight will always have a spot in my heart, but this was amazing especially for the first in the series. It’s a very slow start to develop the story like and the main cluster of characters but it really combines all of the things that make twilight, vampires diaries, and legacies good and puts it in one place. There’s never a point where it gets too serious for it’s own good the way twilight does, and it gets along with the story right before it gets almost tedious to continue the way I wish the other 3 would’ve (to be frank). It’s definitely a book that teens and young adults will enjoy all around.
Made it two chapters
The author loves the work "pretty". "Pretty sure", "pretty freaking (cold, hard, scary. Honestly take your pick) and, of course, "literally". Lazy writing, lazy editing. I am curious to know who is giving this book 5 star reviews. It's written like a pre-teen twilight fanfic, devoid of original thought and effective writing.
Why is this book so goddamn long?!?
I think it’s enough to simply say: this 1,000 page book takes place in a singular week. To call the writing claustrophobic is an understatement. Also the extremely white main characters have both no personality and no chemistry.
