    Eh, I feel like the first book was a lot better than this one. Still liked it though. Initiated was an okay sequel. Definitely got defeated the second book syndrome if you ask me. It had potential but then fell flat. Especially during some scenes that I usually look forward to (cough cough sexual scenes). Just like the first book, this one has bullying.. but a bit more? It's not just her love interests bullying her left and right - nope, more have joined in on the fun! Ugh, I hate bullying and it Eh, I feel like the first book was a lot better than this one.

It's not just her love interests bullying her left and right - nope, more have joined in on the fun! Ugh, I hate bullying and it still makes zero sense to me that someone who is your love interest.. is into bullying you? No idea what drives people into falling in love with that type of disastrous relationship - but to each their own? Other than that, I felt like some scenes were a bit out there. I don't really want to go into detail but I felt like she should been hospitalized or something.. or idk be on the brink of death after ya know - drinking poison? Maybe it's just me. Overall, Hazel was okay in this one. Nothing really happened in this book that got me super invested into it. I might go into the third book but I might not - who knows.

    Hmmm.... There are some things in this book that bothered the shit out of me, but at the same time, I feel like I need to know how it ends. The story itself is unique in some ways as far as the supernatural aspect, and it has a nice creepy, gothic, dark tone to it that is perfect for this time of year. The ending also had me super intrigued. I won't go into details for spoiler's sake, but I don't really know how to rate this. For now, I guess I will go with middle of the road. Hmmm....

    Feels like the author is trying to pass off a YA as an NA...naahhhh I don’t deal with that Not the best of sequels to be honest. I felt like book one was okay, but I decided to read on because I hoped I could see the characters develop into more yet they still remained very 2D. The biggest dissatisfaction comes from the relationships. There seems to be no real chemistry between Hazel and ‘her Kings’, also the sex scenes (all one and half of it ) were rather disappointing.

I’ve still given it 3 stars because it’s not bad. I don’t hate it, but it’s not enough. Oh well, maybe next time.

    For some reason, at first I couldn't remember much except from the ending of the first book and I kept confusing the Surviving Year One book with this series but after a while, it was fine. I found this sequel interesting and I thought it was a quick read. However, I can't help but feel a bit disappointed by it. One thing I didn't like were the sex scenes (Okay there was like 1.5 scenes, but still). I rolled my eyes at the writing in those scenes which felt overdone?

One thing I didn't like were the sex scenes (Okay there was like 1.5 scenes, but still). I rolled my eyes at the writing in those scenes which felt overdone? (I don't know how to explain it... sorry!) and they were the opposite of what you'd want, meaning they weren't exciting. It's a bummer because now I'm just not excited to see their relationships develop in that way. In Initiated, there's still bullying happening just not from the love interests. At one time, she is beaten up and forced to drink household product (sorry, I don't know what it's called in english, but basically something poisonous) and other than drinking milk afterward and throwing up, she seemed to be okay quite quickly in my opinion. I would have expected her to not be okay, especially not so soon after... Hazel having power is mentioned but not really explained in this book so I hope we'll find out a bit more in the next one. Also, I don't really get the dreams that she's having, it's a bit confusing. I know I seem negative but I still like this series enough to want to keep going. :)

A pretty important deadline occurs and yet people are singing, doing pranks and then she's being removed all of a sudden. This feels like a very clumsy YA book with some added steam to make it adult. Too many mixed storylines are occurring and it's put me off. If the 3rd book is the final I may give it a try but if she intends to do more I may leave it here.

    Pretty much everything I didn't care for in book #1 wasn't a real problem here anymore.

It's a definite improvement in just about every sector, which is good, because it makes me want to continue into the next book and, god willing, finish the series when the final book comes out in a few days. When I read books, I usually have a word document open so I can take notes, and usually a lot of bullet points means I have a lot of things to talk about and they're generally bad things. Book #1 had at least a page of me spewing my immediate thoughts and feelings about things, but, throughout book #2, I didn't really feel a need to write much. I took two total notes: 1) Greg's character is given more depth; his stereotypical nature is deliberate and explained as a sort of coping mechanism. I found that sort of clever actually, wasn't expecting that for a side character, so I'll make an amendment in my book #1 review. 2) The content editing wasn't totally sound; I noted a few places where information was pointlessly reiterated, like we're told in two separate places only a few pages apart what Courtney's Halloween costume is. Besides this, the characterization, plot, and content are all looking up. Hazel isn't just stupidly horny all the time, there's reason for a conflict because the boys haven't just been cruel to her and they've helped her through some dangerous stuff, so she has some tender feelings growing, yet she isn't just going to forget everything they've done and forgive them, so we have turmoil and conflict, not just Hazel jumping on the "yep we're in love and dating and I forgive you" train that some bully romances like to take. Honestly the romance aspect is pretty subdued and feels like growing feelings rather than insta-love, which I appreciate. I like that complexity and I like that the plot is thickening; there's several conflicts, several antagonists, several things we still don't know, several ways this could all play out. Book #2 has much more of what I was hoping to get out of book #1. The ending cliffhanger is also done better. It's still really sudden and harsh, but it works better in this case than it did in book #1, though it also is now making me feel like this series is very... serial-installment style, which I resent. I wouldn't pay the $4 price tag for this book or its predecessor. Especially since, again, the last 7% isn't even part of the story but author's notes, other book excerpts, other book promotion, and author bio. This installment contains the usual swearing and more mature content warning; there's a sex scene and a scene of graphic intimacy, so this is an upper teen, sort of NA style series. Ah, what else? There might be more but, this wasn't bad enough for me to write a long rant, nor was it good enough for me to really sing its praises. It just kept my interest and was something I got through pretty easily and quickly.

I'm so evil! they won't know what hit them next time!" *end scene* Seriously, Hazel ("Haze"--gag!) is about as bad ass as a whoopee cushion filled with farts. All talk, no action. No backbone. I am BORED BORED BORED and sorry...but the dudes aren't exactly enticing me to read onward, either. The author's descriptions of some of the characters is pretty racist/stereotyping, and I don't even think I can blame it on it being "from Hazel's perspective." If you want a real, off-the-rails, so-wrong-but-you-can't-look-away bully RH academy, pick up Hannaford Prep instead. Same triggers--like lots of casual murder and stuff (be warned)--and the bullying is a lot worse, but at least the MC stands up for herself, and the OTT drama fits with the characterization and plot.

    Following on from the first book, Hazel now knows everyone is dead. From there the story is pretty much a mind fuck. Who to trust, who to protect, what is going on. The bullying in this one is mainly one sided but it is dangerous. I like how Hazel doesn’t forgive easily, she knows what the guys and everyone else has done to her. At the same time she’s torn about the guys. Slowly the mysteries are revealing themselves but with each revelation, things twist and Hazel seems to be the crazy one, as Following on from the first book, Hazel now knows everyone is dead.

Ends on a cliffhanger and I know the next one is gonna be harsh. The sex creeped me because Ick they’re dead. Not zombies or anything but still sounds gross. Still I wanna see what happens next.

    Whoa. Ok. My head is spinning. I devoured this book, but I've got questions. Tons of questions. And none of which I can ask because I want to avoid spoilers. While book one was slow to reveal the paranormal elements, this book fully immerses you into the paranormal world, and it's pretty fascinating. The issues I had with Hazel in book one are still present, but not as nagging. I appreciate how slow she is to trust the Kings, because it shows she's not a complete idiot.

I'm completely intrigued by the Kings, more so than I was in book one. I feel like book two really gave them each more character depth because we learn more about their histories. I've still got questions, though. Some are still lingering from book one, and some are new. It seems as though the author is going to answer them, eventually, so I am just going to have to be comfortable with not knowing for the time being. It's almost as it, along with the PNR elements, this book has psychological thriller aspects, as well. I am definitely diving into book three because I NEED ANSWERS. And that cliff hanger? Wtf. I'm so glad I waited to binge this series because I would have been RIOTING if I had to wait.

    I was so drawn into the first book in this series, I just had to get into book 2. The bullying has stopped from the Kings, but other students at Derleth are still not happy that Hazel is there. Also, there is the whole mystery of what happened to the students and how to possibly save them. Hazel is on a mission. But she's also weary, she doesn't know if she can trust Trey, Quinn and Ayaz.

I can't wait to read the rest of the series, each book seems to end with a cliffhanger more enticing than the last!

    **EDIT** I finished the book. I wasn’t really impressed, I’m reading solely bc I want to know how it ends. Not bc I’m particularly enjoying it. It’s like a car-crash and I just can’t look away. The heroine wasn’t likeable and the chemistry was none existent within her so called harem. There also isn’t anything particularly alluring about the men either. I’m not a fan. The whole mention of racial segregation and white privilege was unnecessary to the plot. I think the author should leave that alone **EDIT** I finished the book.

I rate this book 1.5 stars simply bc I’m so compelled to see where this shit show ends... That’s got to count for something right?! Oh and the book cover is pretty. DNF at 25% - Possible spoilers below I was so intrigued at the end of book one but with the revelation at the start of this book I realised that this plot just wasn’t doing it for me. I don’t know what genre this book wanted to be, the story telling was quite disjointed and I didn’t really feel any chemistry between the heroine and hero’s. The heroine seemed to blindly accept the crazy cult world she’d found herself in and she didn’t even bat an eyelid that she was lusting after undead guys that are twice her age. The romance was forced and the fact she possessed some time of fire affinity power that she barely acknowledged was quite frustrating. The creepy atmosphere and secrecy seemed forced and that just isn’t my cup of tea. Even though I’d like to know how the story ends I don’t think I’m going to continue reading. I’m just not enjoying the story telling. But damnit I need to know the endgame... So I just don’t know. Maybe I’ll try again later

I need to know what’s going to happen with Hazel and everyone else. Seriously, how am I supposed to take that ending? It makes no sense. I highly doubt everything was a figment of her imagination. Come on. Ugh. I love a good cliffhanger until I realize the next book won’t be out for a couple of months. That’s the Oh. My. God. Oh my freaking...I cannot believe this! I don’t think I’ll make it till October 14th. I love this series and I just started it yesterday. I’m obsessed. Obsessed I tell you! I need to know what’s going to happen with Hazel and everyone else. Seriously, how am I supposed to take that ending? It makes no sense. I highly doubt everything was a figment of her imagination. Come on. Ugh. I love a good cliffhanger until I realize the next book won’t be out for a couple of months. That’s the real kicker. Initiated focuses on Hazel and the three kings as the struggle to figure out what’s really beneath the school and how to destroy it. However, with the likes of Courtney, the headmaster and all those rotten excuses for parents, it’s kinda hard to figure out the secrets hiding in those caves. There were a few moments when I was this close to disrupting the fabric of our world by jumping in there and shaking a few people around. If only I could’ve done that. Now let’s talk about the characters. I have a lot to say. And I mean, a lot. Let’s discuss Hazel (aka Hazey). Hazel’s personality is such a refreshing change to the usual heroines we see in the reverse harem genre. It felt more realistic to me. Instead of falling for her three tormentors as soon as they started showing her acts of kindness, she kept them at arms length. She trusts Quinn, Trey and Ayaz about as far as she can throw them. However, as time passes, they do show her that they can be trusted which makes the relationship progression more realistic. Slow-burn all the way people. It’s so slow-burn that you should not not expect any action until Initiated. Another characteristic of Hazel that I like is her ‘take-no-shit’ attitude. One thing I hate is when people just take people’s shit without giving anything back (although I think that kinda makes me a hypocrite because I don’t always give much back). Of course there were a few pranks that could have had some disastrous results but what do you expect when you have peers literally pouring tar into her hair and destroying her personal possessions? I guess she could take the high road, but that would be an incredibly high road. Now, it’s time we talk about the kings: Trey, Quinn and Ayaz. Trey is...complicated. He doesn’t give much away about himself. In my opinion, he was one of Hazel’s worst tormentors. That in itself would make you think he couldn’t be redeemed, but, well, things change. Also, out of the three, Trey is definitely the leader although that doesn’t mean he’s not a pawn. In fact, every one of them is a pawn. Quinn is a laidback jokester who is an absolute flirt. I know that Quinn is just a flirt in general, but he’s such a sweet one when he’s not being a bully. There were a few moments where Quinn managed to snag multiple smiles from me. He’s that good. Ugh, he’s awesome (except during that first quarter of school). Ayaz, hm, I’m not sure how to describe Ayaz. He has a quite persona similar to Trey’s except much different. I’m not sure how to describe it except sort of like a tortured artist. I do like Ayaz, but I feel like I haven’t learned as much about him as I wish I had. All in all, I like these three guys and I’m worried about them. I’m not sure what happened, but I swear that headmistress has something to do with it. I won’t say what, but it’s not looking good. My Thoughts (Possible Spoilers) Ugh, I cannot wait to see what happens in the next installment. I do think that Ayaz was either under that god’s mind control or faking it. The first option is not good, not good at all. The latter should yield a much better outcome as we can expect them to plan Hazel’s asylum “prison” escape. However, I swear, if he was being truthful at the end and meant what he said, I will be piping mad. I might even punch my phone. I simply cannot believe that everything was a hallucination. Unless Steffanie Holmes decided to create the mind-fuck of all mind-fucks. That would be awful, yet brilliant.

    Holy hell what just happened? This book took some serious twists and I didn't see any of them coming. In fact I'm not even sure if I know what is real or what truths to believe. So yeah I guess I'm exactly where Hazy is at the end of this book. I can't wait to discover the truth in the final book. Holy hell what just happened?

    Super good second book, I cannot wait to read the third, this one for sure ended on a doozy of a cliffhanger. The plot thickens, the characters get richer, and the world gets a little more topsy turvy. This is insane, this is a good time, this is a must read. I was so hooked and read so fast I felt like I had just started when it ended. I am looking forward to the last book that is for sure.

    Not sure how to rate So I read the description and decided to buy the series... Not completely disappointing but there is nothing about this being paranormal romance novel mentioned at all in the synopsis. The authors use of the "white privilege" and political undertones were so completely unnecessary, stick to writing fiction!!!

    I am honestly more interested with WHERE this plot is going than anything else. I have questions that need answers! It reads like a YA though, the romance (if you can call it that) seems forced at this point.
