Overview

Izara Torvik thought her life was over the moment that her father sent her and her twin brother to a boarding school in the middle of nowhere Oklahoma. She soon discovers that the school is not as ordinary as she thought and finds herself thrown into a battle against her inner demons that only have one desire...the desire to kill.

Once my body stopped trembling, I picked myself up. It felt strange, my feet seemed to fall much lighter on the ground than normal. My head also felt a bit fuzzy. I turned and froze as I caught myself in the reflection of a full-length mirror. I glided forward to get a closer look. My eyelids had sunken into my skull and my eyes were red! I reached up to touch my pallid skin only to gawk at my hands. My fingernails had been replaced with dark, black claws.
"I'm a monster," I hissed.
My eyes flashed up to meet my reflection once again and soon my clawed hands were the least of my worries. Two black, very large things were moving ever so slightly, blocking the reflection of the rest of the room. I looked over my shoulder to find large, black feathered, wings...length mirror.

“Tompkin’s School” was one of those books which you can’t stop reading once you pick it up. Twins Izzy and Kain, having just lost their mother, have seemingly lost their father’s affection as well as both are now sent to a boarding school deep in Oklahoma. None too thrilled with the forced move, brother and sister soon experience a strange feeling of belonging to a new place, but that’s only the beginning: once they turn sixteen, the oddest transformations start taking place and Izzy and Kain need to get to the bottom of this and fast. I loved that the plot was so fast moving yet didn’t feel rushed, and I got to enjoy this thrilling ride with the twins and their friends. Brooding, gothic atmosphere, an outstanding setting, intriguing characters and mysterious history of the establishment made me turn pages faster, yet I didn’t want the story to end. And of course, I got extremely attached to Izzy and her brother and I love it when books do that to me, make me feel like I personally know characters and can root for them. A great read, which I would highly recommend to all fans of the genre. And I can’t wait to start book 2!
