About the Book:
As a pure-blood Winglet, Oriana isn't supposed to look at a half-blood much less speak to one. Half-bloods are the lowest of all races at Odon's University, because they are half Winglet and half Finlet. But when a half-blood, Dorian, locks eyes with her in the hallway, Oriana can't help but be intrigued by his daring nature. After sneaking out to the garden in the middle of the night to talk to him, Oriana knows she can't let her feelings go. She fears not following Odon's rules, but the more she sees Dorian the more she wants to break them all. When Oriana's idea of perfection crumbles she seeks a way out of the imprisoning University that threatens not only her happiness, but her very life. Dorian promises he has a plan to take her far away, but Oriana doubts they can escape Odon's all-seeing eye. Oriana isn't sure what she fears more, being stuck in the University or finding out what lies beyond its walls.

My Thoughts:
This was a great read I must say!  
Even though some pages where hard to get through and kind of slow, most of the book was an absolute pleasure to read. It was exciting and mostly fast paced with I love in books. Sometimes it was hard to picture the surroundings, for example the University. Maybe that´s just me.
The fantasy goes on and on and this was definitely something new.

I liked Oriana and I have nothing to complain about with her. She a was brave and likable character and I enjoyed following her adventure. Then we have Dorian whom I liked a lot too. He was described a hot (which I can not complain about hehe) and he felt very mature and protective of Oriana. I liked how he was kind of a mystery in the beginning. One thing I didn´t like about the story was the lack of romance between these two. What can I say, I love romance and I think it needed a bit more. 
I know, the main focus of this book is not the lovestory but the story itself.
To summon thing up this is a book you should read if you like a paranormal mystery =)
