About the book: This book is written by Lauren Kate.
And is the first book in a trilogy. I think.
Read: English - October 2010
There’s something achingly familiar about Daniel Grigori.
Mysterious and aloof, he captures Luce Price’s attention from the moment she sees him on her first day at the Sword & Cross boarding school in sultry Savannah, Georgia. He’s the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are all screw-ups, and security cameras watch every move.
Even though Daniel wants nothing to do with Luce–and goes out of his way to make that very clear–she can’t let it go. Drawn to him like a moth to a flame, she has to find out what Daniel is so desperate to keep secret . . . even if it kills her
The story: It´s about Lucinda Price, called Luce. She sees shadows, which often brings something bad with them. She starts on a new school called Sword & Cross, with were special classmates. But she can´t tell about her secret.
But at school there is this amazing, mystical guy called Daniel. Which she is drawn to all the time. And at the same time there is this nice guy called Cam, who will do everything to here.
But there are also secrets behind the walls of the school. What will happen and which guy will she choose.
My opinion: I think it´s a really good book. Though kind of boring in the start. I almost quit it. But because I loved the cover I promised myself I had to read it all the way, and I don´t regret. It´s a fantastic book. And the Author writes with mystery. There are always somethings who are not reviled, so you want to continue reading it, to find out. This is a very good thing. Because when I finished it I hurried down to the shop the next day, just to buy the second book. And now I can´t wait for the third one to come :P
But I have also discovered that this book is either loved or hated. So I will suggest people who read it, to finish it. Before they make any conclusions about it :) And to all out there. You should read it, and find out if you like it :) Good luck ;)
Have you already read it, then please make a comment with your opinion and fx. a link for your blog/homepage :)
I give it about 4.5 out of 6 stars :) Because it´s a great book for young adults. But the boring starts makes it fall down to a 4.5 :)
