Publisher's Summary

Sometimes the ones who save us are the ones we need to fear the most.

In a world where dark faeries have stepped in to save the planet from humanity's mistakes, 17-year-old December Thorne is nothing but a shadow. Shunned by her peers, bullied at school, and paid a little too much attention by her sleazy foster father, she lives in constant fear and perpetual solitude.

Until the day everything changes.

Offered a scholarship to the prestigious Oberon Academy, December finds herself living in a whole new world. Boundless food, clean clothes, a safe place to sleep, and the potential for true friendship make her new life seem almost too good to be true - but the school has a secret.

The truth is, Oberon Academy isn't just a prep school for society's elite. It's a training ground for a secret race of magical beings no one knows exists. And they're preparing for war.

Filled with fear and denial, December has a choice to make. She can either return to her pathetic life with her dangerous foster parents, try to survive on her own, or make Oberon Academy her home and discover the truth about who, and what, she really is.

And that truth could save the world.

Be Careful What You Wish For.....

Orphan December just wants to escape notice, bullied, nightmare homelife, can't wait to turn 18 and be free. One angry wish, and everything changes, a new life at Oberon Acadamy, with a friend, a crush and a mentor. She feels betrayed when she finds out everything is not as it appears. I loved the way December starts to find her back bone and learns to trust and fight, and cried at her devestating loss. This book was an emotional rollercoaster and I loved it, I can't wait to start book 2!

I listen to a lot of books, a lot. This one seemed right up my alley, but it just lacked. The characters fall for each other without really having any interaction at all. I wasn't able to cheer on the main character in her love quest, my heart didn't ache at the unknowing if he liked her back- I felt nothing for the main character. scratch that, she wasn't actually quite annoying. I felt annoyed listening to this. which sucks because the reviews I read said it'd be otherwise, so this is my honest review.
