No matter what Rayne McDonald does, it seems like trouble always finds her. Hidden away at Riverdale Academy with her sister Sunny, Rayne not only has to deal with being a vampire and a slayer but now also has to deal with being stuck in a boarding school full of vampire haters.

Night School is the fifth book in the Blood Coven series, picking up right where Bad Blood left off. In this book, we’re following Rayne as she tries to cope as a vampire in a slayer school. Despite the light tone of this particular series, Rayne really develops well as a character in the story. There are some other characters that still need a little development, but I’m hoping this will be remedied in the upcoming books. The book didn’t go without action, and it lived up to its predecessors. Like those before it, once you finish then you’ll only be thirsting for more.

Although sometimes over-the-top, author Mari Mancusi always seems to make the ideas in her stories pop with a reality that leaves you forgetting you’re reading fiction. Charming and humorous, Night School is a must for Blood Coven and vampire fans alike.
