    "Hogwarts seems like the type of school most kids dream of. It is a school surrounded by wizardry, magical creatures, and mystery. I can't imagine there being a single child alive that wouldn't want to be a part of this amazing boarding school. The school is a central location for most of this amazing story. "

    "I read this book back in college and it was okay. However, I found most of the stories too unrealistic and quite frankly unbelievable. I can't say that I enjoyed it but I think some people might like it."

    "This isn't the typical boarding school story as it involves the supernatural, specifically vampires. Luckily it isn't as tacky as most teen vampire books are. The characters are complex and the book explores Russian vampire lore, but if you're after a normal, strictly human boarding school novel, keep looking."
