Review: Unnatural (Archangel Academy #1) by Michael Griffo

In the town of Eden in northwestern England stands the exclusive boarding school known as Archangel Academy. Ancient and imposing, it’s a place filled with secrets. Just like its students…

For Michael Howard, being plucked from his Nebraska hometown and sent thousands of miles away is as close as he’s ever come to a miracle. In Weeping Water, he felt trapped, alone. At Archangel Academy, Michael belongs. And in Ciaran, Penry, and especially Ciaran’s enigmatic half-brother Ronan, Michael finds friendship deeper than he’s ever known.
But Michael’s only beginning to understand what makes the Academy so special. Ronan is a vampire—part of a hybrid clan who are outcasts even among other vampires. Within the Academy’s confines exists a ruthless world of deadly rivalries and shifting alliances, of clandestine love and forbidden temptations. And soon Michael will confront the destiny that brought him here—and a danger more powerful than he can imagine…

I'm a pretty open minded guy, and I thought I might like this one. Oh how wrong I was. The open ended way that certian steamy sceans are handled was way out of my comfort zone. This book takes the notion of homosexual love and revamps it into a racy forever alone womans novel. I did not like this book and it was a chore to finish it, but hey to each his own.

  1. I've been curious about this series, but unfortunately the reviews haven't been that positive so I've stayed away from it.. which is too bad because I LOVE the premise behind it!

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts on it!
