Jealousy by Lili St. Crow

Released: July 29, 2010
Publisher: Razorbill
Rated: YA


Dru Anderson might finally be safe. She’s at the largest Schola on the continent, and beginning to learn what it means to be svetocha–half vampire, half human, and all deadly. If she survives her training, she will be able to take her place in the Order, holding back the vampires and protecting the oblivious normal people.

But a web of lies and betrayals is still closing around her, just when she thinks she can relax a little. Her mentor Christophe is missing, her almost-boyfriend is acting weird, and the bodyguards she’s been assigned seem to know much more than they should. And then there’s the vampire attacks, the strange nightly visits, and the looks everyone keeps giving her. As if she should know something.

Or as if she’s in danger.

Someone high up in the Order is a traitor. They want Dru dead–but first, they want to know what she remembers of the night her mother died. Dru doesn’t want to remember, but it looks like she might have to–especially since once Christophe returns, he’ll be on trial for his life. The only person who can save him is Dru.

The problem is, once she remembers everything, she may not want to . . .

What I thought: 

This series is getting better with each book. Twist and turns keeps things very interesting and I don't have that feeling of already having everything figured out in the first three chapters.

This series has been a bit different than others. Dru is just a teenager and she acts like one. She cries alot more than any of the other teen characters from other novels, but I don't think that it is a bad thing. Some things seem to leave a character unaffected, but not with Dru. She feels things. She is strong for those around her but struggles to be strong for herself. Very real character.

I gave it 4 stars!
