Unafraid by Michael Griffo

The boarding school known as Archangel Academy possesses a legacy of secrets known only to a privileged few. For in this peaceful, charming part of England lives a population of vampires at war with one another--and Michael Howard is caught in the middle of it all. . .

When Michael left his small Nebraska hometown to enroll at Archangel Academy, he couldn't have imagined how much the experience would change him. Once mortal, Michael is now a vampire with a destiny that was foretold long ago, and a group of friends with their own mysterious abilities.

But there are enemies too, some of them hiding in plain sight. Being strong enough to defend himself isn't enough. Michael must find a way to protect his entire race of vampires. Dark forces within the school will drive everyone to take sides in the escalating violence. And for all his new powers, Michael will discover that love, jealousy, and vengeance have a danger all their own. . .

I was soooo pumped to read Michael Griffo’s third, Archangel Academy novel (and hey! I noticed that the author and the main character have the same name). I had to know what would happen next after the ending that Unwelcome gave us. There were so many questions swarming my mind; what happens to David? Is Phaedra really gone? Will Ciaran notice the error of his ways? And the hundreds of questions that revolved around Ronan’s sister, Saoirse. While I won’t give you the answers (since that would be cheating and meaning tons of spoilers *la narrowed eyes face*) I will tell you that all of those questions are answered in the novel. Which is a total plus. The one thing about the title that I found strange was the word afraid because as you all know (or at least I’m assuming you know since this is a review for a sequel) that there is no real reason for Michael to be afraid at double A (Archangel Academy). I mean, despite the waging war between vamps and the headmaster being obsessed with Zachariel, there is nothing for Michael to fear. Or is there…? Basically the entire novel revolved around Michael not fearing anything that comes with the life as a water vamp, since it was established in Unwelcome that Michael would have to learn to adjust to being a water vamp—including all of the enemies and risks that comes with it. The novel started at an interesting pace, not only was it the day of Michael’s birth, but it was the conclusion of the prologue that totally piqued my interest. It ends with headmaster David Zachary/big bad water vamp hater/Brania’s father watching (but more like peeping) on the water vamp couple, Ronan and Michael. Despite how over the top creepy that is, it had me dying to know just what else David Zachary would be willing to do. As the novel progressed we were introduced to a character from Ronan’s past who apparently betrayed not only the Well but Ronan himself; Morgandy who may not be all that he appears to be. And there’s also the return of Penry’s sister Ruby who might also not be who we all think she is. Throughout the novel there were plenty of gasp-worthy moments and scenes where I would be racing to find out what happens next, I absolutely loved the way that Griffo constantly had Brania comparing her ways of “parenting” Imogene to the ways that David treated and raised Brania, and I could easily feel all of her cross emotions towards her father. All in all a great read, and definitely my favorite novel in the whole Archangel Academy series… so far. Obviously if you loved or enjoyed the first two novels you won’t be disappointed with the latest installment and if you haven’t read the series yet (in which case you should be glad that this review has almost 0 spoilers) and are a fan of vampire lore you should definitely check out Griffo’s twist on the modern vampire world. With an ending that left me awestruck and begging for more, what wasn’t to love?
