Overview

After attending years of public school and for reasons unknown, sixteen-year-old Evelyn Hollyander AKA Evie, finds herself suddenly "dumped" at Pinehurst, a stuffy private school for the Mageia-the children of magic. Gone are the days of Geometry and Keyboarding, Evie's schedule now consists of classes that teach defensive spells and charms against the deadly creatures of the Underworld. She discovers that her magical abilities are far more pronounced than that of her classmates, or even her teachers for that matter. She's forced into sixth period PE, boys only "boot-camp" for Slayers; and is taunted by some of the students for being the only female Slayer-ever!

But life isn't all that bad. She has a ten alarm crush on Antonio, a hunky nineteen year old Slayer who is assigned as her personal trainer. She's ecstatic until she realizes that Antonio can also communicate with her telepathically-translation: he can hear every steamy thought she has for him.

After learning that her father has been captured and is being held hostage in Hell of all places, Evie seeks help from Antonio and Havoc, a feisty pixie who Evie's sure is evil incarnate. The three of them journey into the Underworld, battle two-headed vipers, a troll, and spiders that are big enough to suck your face off. She's propositioned by the Lord of the Underworld himself. Proving more powerful than expected, Evie is an acquisition he must have-as well as his ticket to the Outer World. The bargain: the safety of her friends and the knowledge to save her father's life in exchange for an unthinkable price.

This book was crazy good. A few light cuss words here and there. Recommended for ages 12-15. The characters were fantastic (antonio) and the plot and story were just as good. I absolutely fell in love with it and antonio. Who wouldnt??? Read the second book about the quest to find the oracle. I havent read it yet, but im sure to wont dissapoint!!!

I thought this would be another toss away book..... I was wrong it has a strong plot line and a variety of characters. An entertaining read, so I just purchased the second book :-)

I was hooked by the 2nd chapter, could not put t down! I would say the age rane should be more around 15 and older rather than what someone else posted about 12 to 15 years old. It is heavily slanted to sex. But didn't completely focus on it, and it is a good, laugh out loud read with a good tale of adventure. I compare it to the Percy Jackson and the Olympians, with more romance. Even guys could get into this tale.

Reading Pinehurst was like finding treasure in a sea of paranormal trash. The plot was both new and interesting and the characters were believable and drew you into their adventures. It was a book I couldn't put down and immediately bought book 2 in the series to see what else happens. Jp

I debated very long between 3 and 4 starts.  It took me a very long time to connect with the main character bordering on hating her in the first half of the book, but Evie eventually grew on me. There are noticeable grammar mistakes that I'm surprised the editor didn't spot, but not too jarring.  I am a very strict critic from being an English major and avid YA reader. The second half of the book was great though! The ending was captivating enough to make me spring for the 2nd book in the series. That you for the enjoyable read :)
