The Darke Academy is a school like no other. An elite establishment that moves to an exotic new city every term, its students are impossibly beautiful, sophisticated and rich. This term the secretive Darke Academy has moved to New York, and Cassie Bell is no longer the innocent new girl. Now she is strong, determined, and hiding secrets of her own. For Cassie has been introduced to the world of the Few and is struggling to come to terms with her astonishing powers, a dangerous romance and the malevolent spirit inside her, demanding to be fed. When an old enemy returns, bent on revenge, Cassie is tested to the limit. Can she rescue her friends from a horrific fate, or will she end up destroying them to save herself? Wherever the Darke Academy goes, death is never far behind ...

Cassie is a bit different since the last book but she try to remain as her own self, even though it's kind of hard since she now must learn how to deal with her "new" life. There are certain rules she has to follow but she has a hard time to accept them. And she can't just ignore the voice inside her either. Even though she doesn't want to feed but hunger as long as she can 'cause she can't stand the fact the fact the way she must feed - but she also know that she can't starve. She also discovers a hidden power that even Sir Alric Darke or any members of The Elders have heard about and that makes them a little nervous. Will Cassie manage to stay out of trouble or will she eventuallly accept her new self and will Sir Alric Darke and The Elders find about how she use her new hidden power?

Blood Ties is a follow up of Secret Lives and what can I say? I still love this series a lot and I'm relieved to know that I already have the book 3 on my shelf. I can't wait to start it 'cause I really like Cassie and many other of the characters as well. Even though they have some powers and kind of unusual from us somehow, I still can relate to some of them. How they feel, how they think, things they are going through and stuff. And book number 2 is just as exciting as the first book.

And it's kind of sad to think about there are only 3 books published. Even though there's a rumour that she has written a fourth book it's not clear if it's gonna be published. But if there is a fourth book I hope it will get published even though that I haven't read book number 3 yet.

But Blood Ties is a very interesting and truly exciting follow up, especially at the end and we get to know the characters a whole lot more. And it's impossible to get bored. Read it and enjoy. Like I said in the last post: Darke Academy deserves a lot more attention!!!
