Book Review: The Unearthly by Laura Thalassa

The first time I was declared dead, I lost my past. The second time, I lost my humanity. Now I’m being hunted, and if I die again, my soul is up for forfeit.

After enrolling in Peel Academy, an elite supernatural boarding school on the British Isles, the last of the sirens, Gabrielle Fiori, only wants to fit in. Instead, the elixir meant to awaken her supernatural abilities kills her.

When Gabrielle wakes up in the morgue twelve hours later, something wicked is awakened in her, something even the supernatural community has never seen before. Now the only person who can help her is Andre de Leon, the community's infamous bad boy and the king of vampires.

Yet even his help can’t prevent the repeated attempts on Gabrielle’s life. Someone is after her, and they will stop at nothing to end her short existence. Only Gabrielle cannot let that happen now that her soul hangs in the balance, because she may have met the devil. And he wants her. Bad.

My Review:
I bought this book on my Kindle and I'm pretty sure I got it for free, and picked it just based on the title and the cover. Not the best way to shop for books but what harm could a free book do? Turned out my instincts proved true simply because this book was awesome. 
Even though it is clearly a paranormal book it had a fantasy type feel to it. A girl gets invited to study at a secluded boarding school, finds out she has a paranormal past and is herself a paranormal, and has a handsome man biding for her love. 
This book proved to be a great summer read. I really can't wait to get my hands on the next book in the series. The dialog was great, the characters well developed and the plot was, well, somewhat predictable, but not in a bad way.
