Book Description

Constantly moving as she grew up, Taylor had learned the hard way how to blend in wherever she went. But when she moves to VanCamp University for her freshman year of college, she immediately finds herself at the center of attention of nearly everyone she encounters. From the charismatic and mysterious Evans twins, to her quirky, clingy roommate Hannah, it seems that the people in Taylor's new college life have no intention of letting her be the wallflower.

It's not just blending in that Taylor has to worry about, though. At VanCamp University, there is more to the staff and students than meets the eye. While trying to adjust to her new life on campus, she finds herself in a world where fairy tales and reality collide, where gargoyles and leprechauns mingle with humans and vampires, and where nothing is as it first appears.

And as she discovers the truth of her own unusual heritage, Taylor learns that fairy tales are just the beginning.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun read December 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great book that I could share with my 15 year old daughter too... It was refreshingly different to have the blood reverse the vampire disease ... My daughter loved it as well... It's a wonderful thing when a author can provide something a mother and daughter can both bond over ...

3.0 out of 5 stars potential for a sequel. September 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story has some interesting details that just doesn't quite come together. The characters were a little flat. I started to like Taylor the main female role in the story but I just didn't get enough of her personality to tell if I actually liked her. She was the most developed character in the story. Because of some intriguing new twist on vampires and other magical creature I believe there is potential in a sequel to this book. There wasn't a good romance in this story that I felt was really lacking. I liked the twin brother Joseph right away for her but then there was nothing. After discovering Tom's secret he sounds like a potential boyfriend material. There wasn't a good connection between any of the characters, I just wouldn't care if any of these people saw each other again. The strongest relationship seemed to be the brothers but by the end that seemed one-sided. With a little more character development and some real relationship bonds the next story could be really good. Maybe if Taylor and Joseph have a stronger bond that will put a strain on the brothers relationship. Tom and her roommate could complete a set of four really close friends, with the possibility of her and Joseph getting together. One last thing a better villian, someone that actually strikes fear in everyone but is also very cleaver at manipulating people.

Not bad for a first book. I would read a sequel with the hopes of potential improvement.

2.0 out of 5 stars Plot not exciting March 25, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I usually rate on the higher side in trying to support the more unknown authors out there but I accidentally downloaded this book instead of the more popular Vampire ACADEMY series I was looking for. I decided to follow through reading it, even if it was not the series I was looking for.
Unfortunately, with series like Twilight and Vampire Academy out there, this first book comes off as a flimsy attempt at trying to delve into this popular genre. The characters are under-developed and not completely likable. The plot is thin and seemed to be lack luster.
I apologize for the harsh review, but I will not be reading anymore of this series. But, for those out there, who knows...maybe the next book makes up for what this one seriously lacks? For the writer's sake, I certainly hope so.

1.0 out of 5 stars boring March 14, 2015
By Furio
Format:Kindle Edition
What this novella really lacks is rhythm. And narrative tension which is usually the same.
What we get is many dialogues/musings about little or nothing, starting with the lead having lost her parents when she was too young to remember and making a wordy fuss about it despite having been raised by a uncle with her older brother.
Series need to indulge in details to manage world building and length but a modicum of interest should be achieved.

This book was amazing. I think it took a little while to get to the point of the story. I have always liked books like this they just interest me. My favorite part of the story was in the middle when things take an unexpected turn

2.0 out of 5 stars Should have skipped it. April 4, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a very short book, which is fine. But as you read through the book, you keep hoping and waiting for something (anything) to happen. The climax is a very sudden one in the last five pages with no build up to it whatsoever. It was disappointing.

3.0 out of 5 stars YA paranormal November 4, 2014
By Mandy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I picked Vampire University up as a kindle freebie from amazon a long while ago but only recently got around to reading it. Taylor lost both her parents when she was a child so growing up was tough now she’s ready to start her freshman year of college at VanCamp University. Her roommate is super outgoing and a little on the weird side but not in a bad way. She also right off the bat encounters the Evans brothers one is desperate to get to know other the other wants her to stay away from his brother.

When Taylor accepts a date with Eric she is surprised when he takes her for sandwiches in a secluded place at school. What should be a chance to know each other quickly turns dangerous when Eric’s sinister motives come out. When he kidnaps the RA it’s up to Taylor to save her but she learns that there is more going on at VanCamp that just trying to pass school. She also learns that her roommate knows more than she’s letting on. Will Taylor survive her first year of school or not make it to her first class.

I liked Taylor she’s an ok character but not my favorite of them all. I found myself liking Hannah there was just something about her that made me smile. I also liked Tom and Joseph even though they aren’t as key of players but I would hope to see more of them in the series. In the first book Taylor hasn’t had a lot of time to grow as a character but I see lots of potential for growth as she learns more about who she is.

I picked this one up as a kindle freebie a while back. The synopsis captured my attention right away. The concept is interesting it's just the story is a not boring. It all happened so far over a few days I felt that I didn’t have time to connect with the characters or for them to grow like I would have liked.
