Justine Eyre captures Luce's fragile emotional state as she enters the gates of the Sword and Cross Reform School. What follows is an atmospheric romance as Luce confronts the fascinatingly familiar Daniel Grigori and the mystery he represents. Eyre fully expresses the haunting quality of this story. Luce's pain and uncertainty are rendered in a believable depiction of teenage love. Distinct voices for each of the reform school students make for a rich cast of characters. Indeed, Eyre's deft characterizations help preserve their identities until the final chapters. However, Luce's secrets are too easy to figure out. The linear plot won't entrance listeners as much as the supernatural romance. For those who believe in destiny, Eyre's performance is on the mark.
