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.

If You’re Not Living on the Edge, You’re Taking Up Too Much Space
I stand at the outer tarmac door staring at the plane I am about to get on and try my hardest not to freak the f out.
It’s easier said than done.
I am pulling out the first line from Tracy Wolff’s new YA paranormal novel Crave today, partly because I am curious about it, mostly because I have been seeing it everywhere for weeks now. I did read on through the first three chapters (4, including “chapter 0”) of the sample offered and here are my initial impressions:
- The cover is so Twilight-like I almost can’t get over it. I liked Twilight when I read it several years ago, but then when I tried to re-read it, I couldn’t get into it. So I am trying to not cover judge, I just don’t get why we can’t use our imaginations anymore?
- The writing is from a very blunt and sarcastic character point of view. To me, this makes the sentences feel shorter and often more shallow. Thus far the chapters are pretty short which leads me to my next point of…
- I do love witty chapter titles and this book definitely has them! According to Goodreads, the book is 592 pages long so that’s pretty giant. However, it seems like the writing is pretty humorous and light.
Keep in mind, I have not read far into this book, my opinions are my own, and I have only read and quoted from a free sampler. I do love a good vampire tale though! Please feel free to share your thoughts if you’ve read it! Or any updates on your Covid? Stay safe, and read on!
