Grace is suddenly uprooted from her normal life in San Diego, CA when her parents tragically die in a car accident. She finds herself in cold and snowy Alaska living with her uncle and attending a boarding school (Katmere Academy) where he is the headmaster. Things aren’t exactly as they seem at Katmere and Grace notices this right off the bat. What follows is Grace’s journey as she navigates life at Katmere and tries to figure out how she fits into this new, strange world.

I’m not going to lie, when I first stumbled upon Crave I wondered to myself “Does the world really need another young adult vampire romance novel?”. The answer is YES, yes it does. Crave grabbed my attention from the moment I started reading as I was instantly fascinated with Grace and the idea of Katmere Academy.

There are so many things I loved about this book but I’m just going to list a couple here. First of all I truly fell in love with all the characters. Tracy Wolff does an amazing job of bringing her character to life and making them easily relatable. Secondly, The story was very intriguing. I literally stayed up all night reading this, as I couldn’t put it down, and barely made it to work the next day. Also I have to mention I LOVED the chapter titles. Normally I hardly pay attention to the chapter titles but these were just so creative and down right hilarious. This book did have a few flaws for me as well. I find the use of certain slang and acronyms slightly childish and annoying. I didn’t let that bother me too much, this is technically a young adult novel after all. I am also a little over the whole “instant love” trope, but I found that easy to get past due to Grace not being your typical teenage girl.

Needless to say I am looking forward to devouring the rest of this series.
