My Review

I received a free copy from the author through Booksprout and voluntarily reviewed it.

I’ve been excited for this book since I read Drinking Blood For Squeamish Vampires where Zoya gets introduced as she’s in the same cooking class as Bernie. I am so glad Zoya got her own story. This book was great and I really liked it. It’s light and fun with a theme of acceptance and being yourself. And there’s more about the cooking classes Zoya attends with Bernie.

Zoya is a vegetarian ghouls while most ghouls survive on ghoul enhanced meat, luckily at Obscure Academy she can be herself and eat vegetarian food. I really liked Zoya and I thought it was nice to read about a vegetarian character for a chance as I am vegetarian myself as well. Cyprus has been flirting with Zoya for a while, at first she thinks nothing of it and thinks he’s just interested in her for her looks, but slowly they grow closer and fall in love.

I liked these two together and how they were both looking for a real connection, I liked how Zoya quickly amended her opinion of Cyprus when she gets to know him better. And Cyprus was just so sweet and accepting. I especially liked the scenes with the formal diner they went to with the societies and how that got resolved. he’s really there for her and I liked how he accepts her. There’s a super sweet scene where he cooks her too, so the image of the cover fits, especially as Zoya wears a Saree in that scene. I also liked learning a bit more about ghouls in this book and the mythology behind them. And there was a fun tidbit about Cyprus being related to a character from one of the author’s other series. And there are some fun scenes of Zoya and Bernie as well as a few other characters form previous books who make an appearance.

There’s just something so fun and enjoyable about this series. I like the theme of being different, but finding a place to be yourself really works for me. The recurring characters through the series are fun as well as the academy settings. The romances are sweet and touching.

To summarize: This was another great book in this series. I was so happy Zoya got her own story too. I liked how she was a vegetarian as it was fun to read about a vegetarian character for a chance. There are some fun scenes involved food and cooking. I liked the theme of acceptance and being yourself that this book (and series) has. I really liked Zoya and Cyprus together. I liked how Zoya adjusted her opinion of Cyprus when getting to know him better and how their connection deepens as they spend more time together. Cyprus is really sweet and I liked how accepting he is as Zoya being a vegetarian ghoul. This series is so fun and I am looking forward to the next one!
