What does it mean when your school is voted the most dangerous in America? It's time to kick some hellion butt...
After not really surviving her junior year (does "undead" count as survival?), Kaylee Cavanaugh has vowed to take back her school from the hellions causing all the trouble. She's going to find a way to turn the incarnations of Avarice, Envy and Vanity against one another in order to protect her friends and finish this war, once and forever.
But then she meets Wrath and understands that she's closer to the edge than she's ever been. And when one more person close to her is taken, Kaylee realizes she can't save everyone she loves without risking everything she has...(GoodReads).
For the record every one of these covers hurts. While on vacation my mom literally said when she saw it "don't tell other people about this book." Not what I call a vote of confidence in my taste in books.
- Originality: 5. Bean Sidhes started this whole mess, but Vincent has really not held back on types of paranormals. I guess this counts as original, but rest of the story lines involve v. mundane high school stuff. Bad teachers, proms, boyfriends, nasty ex-girl friends.
- Absurdity: 6. The Mortal Instruments film is getting flack for its 'everything and the kitchen sink' approach to paranormal mythology. This series is just the same. Hellions, alternate realms, banshees, immortality, resurrections like whoa AND nasty math teachers. It is all here friends, for better or worse.
- Level of Paranormal Romance:10. Reapers and bean sidhes in love, 4-eva. Immortal, beautiful and totally obsessed with each other. Reading to (LITERALLY) go to hell and back for each other. This is how paranormal romance is done. Crazy right up to the end.
- Level of Harry-Potterness: 3. The thing I like best about these books is that they unfold over short periods of time. Usually, about a week. It keeps the plot moving and my interest! If you haven't experienced these books, at least read up until you can get a full sense of why Nash and Tod are some of the best high school crushes out there. Way to go, Kaylee.
