Book Review of The Unearthly by Laura Thalassa

The Unearthly (The Unearthly, #1)

Goodreads Summary 

The first time I was declared dead, I lost my past. The second time, I lost my humanity. Now I’m being hunted, and if I die again, my soul is up for forfeit.

After enrolling in Peel Academy, an elite supernatural boarding school on the British Isles, the last of the sirens, Gabrielle Fiori, only wants to fit in. Instead, the elixir meant to awaken her supernatural abilities kills her.

When Gabrielle wakes up in the morgue twelve hours later, something wicked is awakened in her, something even the supernatural community has never seen before. Now the only person who can help her is Andre de Leon, the community’s infamous bad boy and the king of vampires.

Yet even his help can’t prevent the repeated attempts on Gabrielle’s life. Someone is after her, and they will stop at nothing to end her short existence. Only Gabrielle cannot let that happen now that her soul hangs in the balance, because she may have met the devil. And he wants her. Bad.

Book Review

***5 Alien Stars***

I’ve read many books, however, The Unearthly took me by surprise. . .in a good way. The world Laura created is poignant, unique, quirky, clever, and highly addicting.

Gabrielle is an amazing young woman who’s life is about to change, forever. Her acceptance to Peel Academy is a new start, a way to fit in…but at what cost?

Leanne and Oliver, Gabrielle’s newest friends, are such a hoot! Leanne takes Gabrielle under wing, so to speak, right away. Oliver seriously cracks me up! His spunky attitude sticks with you till the end.

Andre de Leon ~sigh~ is such an arrogant jerk, as most wealthy, sexy bachelors tend to be. However, underneath his rough exterior is a soft, lovable. . .vampire. King of Vampires to be exact. The tension flowing between him and Gabrielle constantly drove me crazy. You know when you read a book and you scream, “Just kiss her already!” Well, I really, really wanted to yell at the two of them. A lot.

Once Gabrielle discovers what type of school Peel Academy really is and what she is, everything changes.

Gabrielle’s life is in grave danger from one page to the next. Action upon action creates a nice heart racing experience while reading this book. The question throughout has you jumping from one suspect to the next. Problem being, our yummy Andre is listed as a suspect as well. 😦

The end creeps up on you, leaving you a bit breathless. So many factors bring a good deal of WTH while reading and in the end, you lose it. I want more. Scratch that, I NEED more, and I oh so desperately NEED Gabrielle and Andre to….. Sorry, can’t spoil it for ya 😉
