After their parents' shocking revelation about their fae heritage and an attack on their lives, the McDonald twins are forced to hide out deep in the Swiss Alps at Riverdale Academy, a secret vampire slayer training facility. And with no way to contact their vampire boyfriends for rescue, they're going to have to play nice with the locals.

Review: I believe this has been my favorite of the series for sure. I felt there was much more going on, an evil plan in the making, tricksters at their best, and so many funny antics. I was laughing out loud many times during this read. I loved this book and the series keeps getting funnier and more serious at the same time. Long story short : Rayne and Sunny find out their parents are fairies and their entire lives have been a ruse, running from the fairy courts. Now the fairies are after Sunny to be the next fairy queen. So to keep the fairies from find Sunny, the twins are rushed off to a slayer school in the Swiss Alps. It happens to be a very secluded very guarded boarding school. The least of their problems, no wireless electronics.... The worst of their worries, no synthetic blood for Rayne. Not only are the twins having trouble adapting, the school is up to something and it's about to come to surface with Rayne right smack in the middle. My thoughts : Ok so there are multiple storylines going in this installment and I liked that. Sunny and Rayne start off with the same objective but when things get a little hairy... Rayne finds herself having to deal with one emergency after another. This book was for sure nonstop action and fun. When I first read the fairy part back in Bad Blood at the end, I wasn't sure where this would lead. When I started Night School, I wasn't sure I was going to like the new direction. Somewhere in the middle of the story it all just fell into place and made sense. Fairies... why not. The humor an irony of it beats all hands down. There wasn't much Sunny in this book, she had her fill in the last book. Rayne dominated and I really started to like her in this book. For once she showed me she cared more about her sister than her own needs and desires. She started to really kick butt and embrace her vampire slayer/vampire powers. She did make a few mistakes that were just stupid but easily understood. She finds her way out of her own mess with the help of Jareth of course and its all good in the end. I want to make a note about the fairyland world building, it was crazy and silly but oh so much fun. I just couldn't help but laugh my way through it. I mean really no one else could have pulled it off the way Mari Mancusi did. Loved It! I felt there was also quite a bit more action scenes in this story and that kept me on my toes. Everyone was involved in fighting even Sunny and Rayne's parents. The book is of course fast paced and a quick read like the other and I really can't wait to read on in the series. In the end I am still loving this series!show more

In light of the truth behind their family history, twins Sunny and Rayne are whisked away from the fae side of the family. They're relocated to the Swiss Alps to a vampire training facility, Riverdale Academy. Rayne, believing she's the only vampire slayer, receives a rude awakening. She has a run-in with the Alpha slayers - the school's slayers. They're hoping to become recruited into Night School. Rayne has a particularly hard time fitting in, as she's both a vampire and a slayer. Without the synthetic blood, she grows weaker and weaker. Sunny goes from crying her eyes out because she can't communicate with her soul mate, Magnus, to behaving erratically. Rayne knows that something's going on with her twin. She's determined to save Sunny from becoming a fairy princess instead of the regular life that she longs to live. Rayne narrates NIGHT SCHOOL, the 5th book in the BLOOD COVEN VAMPIRE series, complete with snarky dialogue, pop culture references, romance, sisterly drama and protection, action, danger, and tons of more
