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.

Evelyn Hollyander, not quite 17, is a girl accustomed to getting herself in hot water. Her frustrated father has finally given up on human schools and has sent her to a school for the Mageai, children of magic. Since she's never been around others with magic ability, Evie had no idea how advanced her magic is. Her abilities are soon the only thing between her and certain death. Nicole is a talented writer, and I really enjoyed this story. She's especially good at writing romance with wonderful male characters and strong female characters. I'm very much looking forward to the sequal.

This is an amazing book! Two thumbs up. The plot is deep, romantic, and it truly sounds like realistic fiction- minus the magic! :D

I love the characters. She is such a great arthur. It's it explained in detail But not too much to make it boring But it makes you feel like your right there apart of the story you can visualize it and everything!!!!!!!????
