Review: The Candidates (Delcroix Academy, #1) by Inara Scott

The Candidates (Delcroix Academy, #1)The Candidates by Inara Scott

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Initial Review

Wasn't that great. Official review to come.

Page 83: Getting interesting...finally.

I'm usually a big fan of the boarding school for gifted students with super powers. And while I enjoyed the characters, to an extent, this book just didn't wrap it all together as good as I've come to expect from other series that have this sort of theme:

The Summoning

Hex Hall

And while those two are more paranormal I think they are still comparable.

I felt that the story line took too long to get moving that the setting, while interesting, was dragged out a bit too much and more details to what was actually going on needed to be addressed but in a better fashion than it was already being done.

The timing was also arranged weird. Dancia, what a weird name too, was able to go home to her grandmother's for the weekend but that was hardly ever shown. I really liked her grandmother and wanted more interaction between them.

The love triangle was also pretty infuriating.

And the ending pretty much sucked. I was not a fan.

At this time I have no plans of picking up the next book of this series.
