Simon Snow is the chosen one, but that doesn’t mean he’s good at it. His roommate at school is Baz – an evil vampire who is going to be his ultimate competitor in the end. But when the chance comes to discover more about Baz’s deceased mother, a former headmistress, the two team up.
It takes a while for Baz to arrive, but when he does, his storyline changes everything. He’s in love with Simon and can’t admit that he’s a vampire. It humanizes the so-called villain and gives you someone and a few somethings to cheer for.
Final say: A new magic that’s spellbinding. ★★★★☆
