☆☆/5

Blurb: Zoey Sanders attends her senior year of high school at a mysterious, gothic castle in Scotland in hopes of running away from her problems. But problems seem to find a way into her new life and even with meeting her possible Prince Charming, there are secrets that lurk in the shadows. 

Review: Ok, first off, look at that cover. If I was just reviewing the cover I’d give it five stars, honestly. It’s so beautiful. It also sets the bar high for the story behind it and sadly, the story fell under that bar.

I feel like this has potential and I kind of love and hate the teenage aspect of it. The author kept hinting at the main characters past and I wish that I had more of a flashback or a bit more history of Zoey.

Is this a school for troubled teens? It sure seems like it.

I do like that the author didn’t go the jealous teen girl way when Zoey and Pam met with Hunter, it was a nice change of pace.

I am feeling a bit frustrated at this box set because the stories stop right when the plot gets going so I’m left with a not very exciting beginning. I kind of feel like this would make a good show but that it’s also been done before so I’m torn.

As I said, the story doesn’t really match up with the cover but again, I’m left with basically just a beginning so maybe it gets better.

Thank you for reading my review.
