    Jenn Bennett is one of my favorite authors ever, so when I saw she was doing a YA fantasy I was so excited! I love seeing authors write different genres even though her YA contemporaries are a-amazing!

    Theo was awesome! She was strong, emotional, challenging, and admitted when she was right or wrong. Huck was the perfect sidekick—swoony, sweet, protective, funny. Their bickering was the best!

    The world building was great and we get to explore such places as Turkey and Romania. And there is quite the chase that Theo and Huck have to take part in to escape people after them. I will say that one of my favorite action scenes was the airplane one!

    And the magic! There was just so much awesomeness tangled up in this book, whether you are looking for contemporary, adventure, fantasy, romance—it's all there! I really loved this one and can't wait to see what happens next with Theo in book 2!

    Huge thanks to Edelweiss and Simon Pulse for the chance to review this title ahead of its release date.

    This book was everything I was looking for, which is to say I was looking for a sassy protagonist, a sexy Irish lad, and an Indiana Jones-like adventure. I sure got it.

    Huge thanks to Edelweiss and Simon Pulse for the chance to review this title ahead of its release date.

    This book was everything I was looking for, which is to say I was looking for a sassy protagonist, a sexy Irish lad, and an Indiana Jones-like adventure. I sure got it.

    Theo's dad is a treasure hunter who suddenly finds himself wrapped up in a mystery and goes missing. Along with the boy named Huck who broke her heart years before and a journal, Theo sets out to find her father, as well as crack the secrets of a ring, reportedly worn by none other than Vlad the Impaler. Or Dracula for you simpletons. What starts as a simple task, their journey takes them deeper and deeper into some shady and dangerous stuff. All while running from a weirdo with a wolf and dodging feelings, Theo and Huck take their travels through Romania and into some creepy places to find both the ring and Theo's dad.

    So, when I said this book was like Indiana Jones, it WAS like Indiana Jones, but for the YA crowd so I was here for it. I mean, I was there before the line even formed. We got an angsty teen and the boy who left her, for reasons we come to know, who have to team up together. I mean, this is GOLD. We've got train rides, and boat rides, and camping, and lots of hiding. We have protagonists who bounce dialogue off each other like it's nothing. I loved it all.

    Theo was an unapologetic go-getter; she likes what she likes and she finds a way to get what she doesn't. Huck was also adorable. They have a tumultuous history which adds to the tension. I probably would have liked a little more about their history as it did seem a little vague, but that wasn't a deal breaker. I would have liked more of a character arc for both of them, especially Huck. One bug that I kept having to swat was the history with these two and why Huck had left Theo before. For some reason, it was sort of strange seeing as they had lived together and decided to take their relationship a step further, which resulted in Huck's banishment from the household. There's some immaturity in the situation, which this is a book about teens, so it's whatever.

    The treasure hunting had a Da Vinci code feel to it, and Bennet did take liberties with some aspects of Vlad The Impaler history, but that was all good.

    What I didn't feel like I was completely sold on was the ending. I felt like Theo's dad was glossed over a bit, even though he was the main reason (as well as the ring of course) for the journey. I wanted him to have a bigger part. I wanted Huck to hash it out with what her father had done to him as well as to Theo, and I felt it was glossed over a bit. Maybe I'm asking for too much. I don't know...

    Other than those minor issues, I loved reading this book. I love European settings, funny banter, and romance so I give this book 4/5.

    Well, as I said before the annotation leads the reader a little bit away from the light and fluffy mood, but once you open the book you'll see that the mood is exactly fluffy and light. Probably if you read other

    books before you'll get a hint as to what expect from the story. As for me, I would compare this book to

    . And as the story is from Theo's POV we don't get inside Huck's head, which didn't prevent him from showing his personality in full - literally and figuratively:

    And trust me when I say I can quote every dialogue of Theo and Huck's and it will be as funny as these quotes.

    , surprisingly nice, relaxing read full of adventures and romantic angst that will make you smile and giggle and root for the characters until the end. I wish I were in the mood (damn reading slump!) to enjoy it properly.

    Huck, the love interest, is………..a little bit cute. He’s also very annoying and self-absorbed, so his cuteness was overruled.

    They have a second-chance romance (despite being rAiSeD aS sIbLiNgS) which I couldn’t get invested in, no matter how much I tried. Huck gives Theo the nickname "Banshee" based on how much she cried while grieving for her dead mother. Huck!!!!!????? Was that very nice???????????

    Mostly, I stuck with this for the Vlad history and Orient Express and the fun journey through Romania + dark castles + misty Carpathian Mountains.
