Last Chance Reform


Immortals of Talonswood #2


Alex Lidell


Reverse Harem


Talonswood Reform is under new management—vampire style. And the new dean wants Reese, the academy’s dark, broody second-in-command, to teach me vampiric obedience.
I want to tell Reese exactly where he can shove all his bowing and scraping. After being on my own my whole life, I’m about as likely to bend a knee to the asshole as I am to trust him.
Worse yet, a long-dead witch’s spell may have just bound me to Reese and three other males. Not only can we not escape each other, but the connection is growing in ways that terrify me—and set all my senses on fire.
The power within me is calling, and it will find a way out…


4stars rating

The first book focussed on setting the stage, Sam and Ellis, this one had Reese in its crosshairs. And I can honestly say… it delivered! Oh boy 😉 *fans herself*

So yeah, count Victor has taken over the school, once again pitting demi vampires against demi fae. Sam, as the only witch, is caught in the middle with only the (very) reluctant aid of Ellis, Reese and Asher helping her when unavoidable. I can tell you it really is not the way she imagined it would be after what happened before… not at all.


Was good, we stuck around campus pretty much all book, with only a few outings to Dusk and the lovely Cassis. All scenes and environments were clear and detailed enough.

Character development:

Was good. Sam knows she is out of her league with the demi’s, she just doesn’t have their advantages, but she does have magic. So she is willing to deal with the devil (well, near enough) to get some training in. As stated earlier, the book is focussed on Reese and his struggle to resist Sam (either killing her or well, more pleasurable things). Sam goes through so many emotions in this book and with Ellis being a bastard I can tell you, it’s not smooth sailing.
All characters feel real and very much alive and omg Sam’s new roomie is amaaaaaaaaazing (and a nerd) 😀

Pacing & Flow:

Were good. While there was a lot happening, it had a more relaxed feeling to it. That said, once you start it, prepare to bloody well finish it in one setting 😀

The book itself:

The book itself was well written and yes, there is sex described (if that is important to you).

Final Thoughts:

I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy of this book and all in all, I really enjoyed it and I cannot wait for the next instalment!
