I’m a Gemini. Impulsive. Curious. Headstrong. A twin. Heir to a throne I know nothing about. And it turns out, I’m Fae.

But of course there’s a catch - all I have to do to claim my birth right is prove that I’m the most powerful supernatural in the whole of Solaria. And sure, technically that’s true as I’m the daughter of the Savage King. But the bit they didn’t put in the brochure was that every single Fae in this Kingdom would claim my throne if they could.

The school they’ve sent me to is both dangerous as sh*t and one helluva party. Vampires bite weaker students in the corridors, the Werewolf pack has orgies in the Wailing Wood at every full moon and don’t even get me started on the dark and twisted ways the Sirens use their powers on people’s emotions, or how my sinfully tempting Cardinal Magic teacher hosts detentions that leave people needing therapy.

Classes are totally interesting if you manage to live through them. And that Gemini star sign I mentioned? It now determines my elemental magic and affects my destiny, so learning astrology is essential if I’m going to beat down my classmates – which is actively encouraged by the way.

My biggest problem is the drool worthy Dragon shifter who has his eyes on my throne. He and his three psycho friends are determined to make my time here hell.

All I’ve got to do is survive. But fate might have other ideas.

Dammit, why couldn’t I have gotten a letter to Hogwarts?

I keep seeing this book everywhere so I had to give it a try. I can see why people are drawn to it and it had some good plot points I just didn't really like any of the characters. I've read some other reviews that say to stick with it so I downloaded book 2 - I have a feeling this is a series that grows better with each installment. 

I like the world they created and I like the girls in the beginning but I feel like they lost some of their charm along the way. No one seems to be eager to help them learn about the Fae world or even to help them learn about their powers but I guess that's the way of the Fae, however you would think that their fan club with the acronym ASS would at least step up to help tutor them in the world of Fae. So I liked this book wouldn't say I loved it but I'm willing to give the series another try
