Lover of all things books. Will read anything YA as long as there is some romance and the characters are 16+. Also love adult paranormal along the lines of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series and the Night Huntress series. Reviewer and blogger on my own blog and FB page.

Finally!! A YA style book with characters my own age! :D
I loved this book. It had everything I could ask for. Vampires, werewolves, witches, water elements, fire elements...basically every magical being you could thing of. I loved all the characters. Dani, Charlie, Thomas, and TS were just the funniest and most adorable people ever. I didin't really connenct with Mariana as she was quit shy and didn't talk that much. Jen was a great character also. She was a bit naive of magic at first as she didn't know any of this existed, and it came as quit a shock to her when she finds out.
The story was very interesting. Kirke's writing was easy to follow and it just flowed really well. I loved learning about all the different magical beings and seeing all the different places they got to visit while on the cruise. I loved how the entire story was set on a cruise ship they are taking classes on. I thought it added a fun element to the story. Things really started to get interesting when a vampire starts feeding on humans on the ship and the gang have to find a way to stop him.
There wasn't a lot of romance in the book which kind of disappointed me as I am a huge romantic but I predict something happening in book two. Fingers crossed anyway!
Overall this was a fun and interesting read. There were a few grammatical errors but nothing major. I would recommend this to anyone who loves paranormal or fantasy books and is looking for a fun and exciting read. :)
