I had this book sitting on my shelf for a while and could not wait to read it. I'm always looking for a book different from my usual contemporary romance and this was exactly what I was always look for.
The main character of this story is Lily. She's half vampire, half shifter; a hybrid. Hybrids are supposed to be killed at birth in order to keep Mysticals from becoming extinct. So everyday of her life, she has been hiding this huge secret from the Mysticals, which has not been so easy. I loved and admired Lily; she was strong, brave, and loyal to her family, but most of all to her friends.
I liked the story itself. After a tragedy (which is hinted at the synopsis) she becomes Queen Shifter. So after this momentous event, Lily is thrust into this position that she was not prepared for. She has to change her major but most of all, go into intense physical training as well as sessions to control her power.
What I definitely LOVED about this story was the friendship between the four king prodigies; Lily, Pearl the mage, Ezra the vampire(my favorite vampire), and Jack the elemental. These four have a very special bond and I loved reading every interaction between them. I also liked the current kings. They were a hoot and the things they made the 4 prodigies do were hilarious.
Overall, I loved this book. There is a cliffhanger and a few questions are left unanswered. I will be looking forward to the next in the series.
