“Lily Parker is new to St. Sophia’s School for Girls, but she’s already learned that magic can be your best friend…or your worst enemy.

They say absolute power corrupts absolutely. Turns out, even a little magic can turn you to the dark side. That’s why Lily has to learn how to control her newly discovered paranormal abilities, on top of avoiding the snobs who think they run her school, nursing a crush on a cute sophomore with a big, werewolf-y secret, and fighting the good fight with her best friend Scout as they take on Chicago’s nastiest nightlife—including the tainted magic users known as Reapers.

Then one night Lily and her friends are attacked by creatures like nothing they’ve ever seen before.  And in the aftermath, she realizes she’ll have to use her growing powers sooner then she thought – because she’s smack in the middle of a paranormal turf war that could tear Chicago apart …”

Lily and Scout are going to need all their skills to stay alive in this book. They are battling not only the Reapers but a new enemy.  Some sort of creature that looks like a rather large rat with very big fangs.  Scout will learn new spells, and Lily will learn new ways to control her Firespell.

This is the second book in Chloe Neill’s Dark Elite series and I’m enjoying it immensely. Forget the YA tag the publishers put on it.  It’s a book for anyone who likes Magic, Powers, Werewolves and other things that go bump in the night.

This is definitely a FIVE STAR READ.

  1. hmmm. I’ve been curious about this series. It sounds like a lot of fun!
    Oh, and about the YA genre. I think YA means the protagonist is young more so than it’s a book for young readers, given the vast majority of age ranges that read YA. That is just my opinion though. 🙂

  2. That’s why Rick Ri0rdan and J.K. Rowling are doing so well. Their books appeal to everyone from age 9 to 90.
