    I received a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.Blood and Beasts is a story that centres around the main character, Persephone Black brilliant name.She awakens on her sixteenth birthday hungry and sensitive to light After drinking her foster brothers blood she realises she s a vampire, or at least she thinks she is After being caught near her brothers body she runs from her home after being shot by her foster father She heads into the woods and finds her best friend has I received a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.Blood and Beasts is a story that centres around the main character, Persephone Black brilliant name.She awakens on her sixteenth birthday hungry and sensitive to light After drinking her foster brothers blood she realises she s a vampire, or at least she thinks she is After being caught near her brothers body she runs from her home after being shot by her foster father She heads into the woods and finds her best friend has also turned into a werewolf They are tracked by other supernatural beings with powers, taken to a school for kids with powers Zephyr Hall, and then the rest of the story is about Persephone and her friends figuring out who they are, what they can do and the story goes on from there.I think this story has a lot of potential but I have to say that I found it lacking in areas check above these parts there were manythroughout the book made little sense to me and I felt annoyed at the lack of realism in these scenes Maybe this is just me but I like to know why someone reacts the way they do, otherwise the story can appear disjointed, which is what I feel happened throughout this book.I would have really liked to seescene development with greater care taken to the characters themselves rather than surface layer description, but the story got lost in the mainstream x men type school for the different I suppose I kept waiting for something to happen and I felt like it never really hit the mark.Some really good qualities to the story that with work could be great, but as a reader I wantedfrom this novel

    4.5 Stars I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review The book starts and gets right to the point and I loved that, there is a lot of action and discovery in the first few chapters and it really drew me in, and the quick and easy pace kept me going, usually much longer than I should have, proving how fun it really is.I very much enjoyed the large and loveable cast of characters but on the other hand it did take me a while to get some of them straight and t 4.5 Stars I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review The book starts and gets right to the point and I loved that, there is a lot of action and discovery in the first few chapters and it really drew me in, and the quick and easy pace kept me going, usually much longer than I should have, proving how fun it really is.I very much enjoyed the large and loveable cast of characters but on the other hand it did take me a while to get some of them straight and to be honest there are still a few that still make me pause for a second to recall who they are but I guess that is to be expected when a boarding school of magical creatures is involved and their pasts are all very deeply explored giving you a ton of info Speaking of the characters and their in depth pasts I really loved how so much of this book focused on their dark truths and how they all came together to heal it was neat to see the union of vampires, werewolves, and witches and how they helped each other cope no matter their past or mistakes My favorite part about this book was the freindships and how they grew with the characters.I must confess that the fact that the focus was the issues these characters faced while trying to adjust to a new life of the magical world, the large threat that they faced at the end seemed rushed and sort of just thrown in there but it was also very action packed and it set up what I imagine will be a great sequel without being to cliff hanger like I really really liked this book and anyone who enjoys a good paranormal read with a lot of emotion then I would highly recommend this one for you.I am excited for book two and I hope it is as full of action and friendship as this one was I will even enjoy a littleheartbreak just to spend some time in this world

    I received this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review.Blood and Beasts starts out with the 16th birthday of the main character Persephone Black affectionately known as Seph by all The 16th birthday seems to have a common theme of change among YA authors and this was no different We find out that Seph has suddenly developed a sensitivity to light and a desire for blood Basically she finds out she is a vampire cause yes they exist along with other mythical creatures I received this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review.Blood and Beasts starts out with the 16th birthday of the main character Persephone Black affectionately known as Seph by all The 16th birthday seems to have a common theme of change among YA authors and this was no different We find out that Seph has suddenly developed a sensitivity to light and a desire for blood Basically she finds out she is a vampire cause yes they exist along with other mythical creatures I found the first few chapters seemed to be very detailed in a superficial way The author used a lot of adjectives to describe Seph and her foster family without really making me feel like I knew the characters I did notice that theI read theI grew to learn about some of these people though they were only mildly touched upon I do think the plot moved along nicely and it was a quick read for me, which usually means I am into the book I did like the approach to the vampire theme, it was similar to the Vampire Academy books in that once the child finds out she he is magical they are then enrolled into a special school to learnabout themselves, their powers, and how to control them Once Seph was enrolled in the school she seems to feel like she fits in with her peers which was something that she appeared to struggle with in her foster home I truly did enjoy this book even though it was a little cheesy in the beginning, you could see a growth in the author s writing as the book progressed and it did leave me wanting to know what was going to happen with Seph, her foster family, and her friends without making me feel like it had a cliff hanger Overall I found this book to be enjoyable and look forward to reading the next book in the series

    Going into this book I had some expectations of what it would be like. with other books with same topic out there, but this was different and a bit confusing at first once I got to know all the characters It read well, was an easy read but I had to go back to read some parts again so I was sure it was about a monster school for the supernatural It did say it was and read like it but the characeters were a bit here and there, it is what threw me off I did enjoy the book very much and I look f Going into this book I had some expectations of what it would be like. with other books with same topic out there, but this was different and a bit confusing at first once I got to know all the characters It read well, was an easy read but I had to go back to read some parts again so I was sure it was about a monster school for the supernatural It did say it was and read like it but the characeters were a bit here and there, it is what threw me off I did enjoy the book very much and I look forward to read the next book, so it will come together in whole not as in part But reading this book blood and beast of Persephone Black how she changed from a normal sixteen your old to a being a vampire It was crazy what the teen years held for her, with a unique name she had a unique changes in her life she had to get use to Finding out there were many out there like her and different So she was not alone Teenagers already goes through changes in real life, it was good to see this read well, after I got the who was the wolf, the witch and so on. A bond of unlikely friends at first but it all works out the same They may not be human but they are very much teenages, with same problems as human teenagers goes through but their s stories goes deeper Would be interested to read the story on all of them how they came to be, where they came from and so on..I got this book free in exchange for my honest review I love paranormal books young and adult. it was a good change to read and relive how I was as a teen The love and jealously boy I know how that felt like Recommend for the paranormal lover in you No spoilers, read the book to find them L.M Miller did an awesome job with this series 4 stars

    What attracted me to this book was the premise f a new vampire attending a monster academy with other different types of monsters However, I was too distracted by the writing style to actually enjoy anything.I could not get past the narrator It s told in 3rd person POV, but I kept getting the feeling that maybe it was the subconscious of the characters speaking in third person to themselves 1 Near the beginning, the narrator seems to be acting as the main character s thoughts though still What attracted me to this book was the premise f a new vampire attending a monster academy with other different types of monsters However, I was too distracted by the writing style to actually enjoy anything.I could not get past the narrator It s told in 3rd person POV, but I kept getting the feeling that maybe it was the subconscious of the characters speaking in third person to themselves 1 Near the beginning, the narrator seems to be acting as the main character s thoughts though still narrating in 3rd person , for when there are questions about who these guys are these vampires that found her one of the vamp guys ends up reading her mind the thoughts that are of the narrator Am I making any sense It s sorta hard to explain because it s sorta confusing to read as well.2 When Seph MC is on her 1st day of classes, she almost calls her teacher, Sir Guthrie, by a nickname that upperclassman call him This is how the narration happened after her slip up Guth Man The older students called him that So the new student already knew some of the big kids She must think she was so tough, picking on the class bully, talking with the older students oh she was a vampire Again, maybe the characters think in third person However, there should be some sort of indication that lets the reader know that this is a part of a thought and not the narration It was awkward and very confusing Also, it just switched to a different POV for a moment, but the POV seems to be 3rd person limited see the example that follows 3 The narrator is also too casual and not at all smart Many times does the narrator have to recall information from prior events Had she just felt what Nate was feeling Phin had mentioned something about that what had he said There is also too many uses of the words that s interesting and had she had remembered he had said when they had went etc and double punctuationThere was also an overuse of ellipses I get that they can be used for suspense or to show a though or sentence going unfinished interrupted However, they sometimes seemed misplaced or not necessary at all.There were also a lot of characters to keep track of And whenever Seph met a new person, she ran down a laundry list of what the looked liked This could just be a personal annoyance.I can t say that I enjoyed Seph as a character, as I was confused as to what her personality was I m not sure if she was changing because of her new vampirism, but when she is first introduced, she seems sort of childish and naive she doesn t understand what is happening when she turns into a vampire and maybe even sweet However, when she s in school she s a completely different person She s shoving people and claiming chairs and back talking the teachers and has a snarky remark for the things people are thinking about her.She s just so angry and quick tempered Again, this could be because she s a vampire now, but that change was unexpected and I did not like it.Overall, I did not enjoy this book at all I think with someediting like checking for consistencies and grammar and cutting scenes because this book is too long IMO , that it could be an enjoyable book Many others adored it, so I would suggest reading other reviews to get a feel of what they liked about it

    Blood and Beasts was a fun ride The story centers around a group of sixteen year olds with all of the normal problems and insecurities of sixteen year olds There are family issues, identity issues, body image issues, boy girl attraction issues, school rivalries and jealousies In this case, however, everything is complicated by the fact that these students are paranormal Their school is nicknamed Monster Academy, and the kids have to wrestle with whether or not they have actually become mons Blood and Beasts was a fun ride The story centers around a group of sixteen year olds with all of the normal problems and insecurities of sixteen year olds There are family issues, identity issues, body image issues, boy girl attraction issues, school rivalries and jealousies In this case, however, everything is complicated by the fact that these students are paranormal Their school is nicknamed Monster Academy, and the kids have to wrestle with whether or not they have actually become monsters , in addition to learning about and learning to control their powers.It was a nice start with obvious sequel possibilities The author did a great job not squeezing too much into the first book.What I liked most about the book was the character development I liked the characters and their interactions, and I cared what happened to them There were some great villains to hate I really enjoyed the fact that in the fight of good vs evil , the good characters had their share of flaws As the story progressed to a crisis, I found myself staying up until 1 a.m to find out what happened That s always a sign of a good story in my opinion I look forward to the author s next book
