Reseña del editor

At Barinkoff Academy, there's only one rule: no students on campus after curfew. Phoenix McKay soon finds out why when she is left behind at sunset. A group calling themselves night students threaten to taste her flesh until she is saved by a mysterious, alluring boy. With his pale skin, dark eyes, and mesmerizing voice, Demitri is both irresistible and impenetrable. He warns her to stay away from his dangerous world of flesh eaters. Unfortunately, the gorgeous and playful Luka has other plans. When Phoenix is caught between her physical and her emotional attraction, she becomes the keeper of a deadly secret that will rock the foundations of an ancient civilization living beneath Barinkoff Academy. Phoenix doesn't realize until it is too late that the closer she gets to both Demitri and Luka the more she is plunging them all into a centuries old feud.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas My New Favorite Novel 1 de mayo de 2012
Por Wendy S. Russo - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Versión Kindle
The clang of a bell wakes Phoenix McKay from a nap. Before the second clang, she is on her feet and racing for a door that weighs a metric ton (or, might as well, given her penchant for slacking off in gym class). She slips. A third clang. She manages to open it just enough to slip through. A fourth clang follows, then a fifth. She's late...unforgivably late...for the only appointment of her day that really matters. She stands outside as the sixth and final bell clangs, staring at an undisturbed blanket of show across Barinkoff Academy's parking lot. The school had one rule, inflexibly enforced: no students on campus after curfew. The last bus back to the dormitories left ninety minutes earlier.

It's cold, dark, and the dorms are miles away. She figures that if she's going to get expelled anyway, she might as well try to find a janitor or someone to give her a ride. But the people she finds in the hall aren't Barinkoff staff. They're freakishly beautiful, guys and girls alike, and dressed in clothes from another century. One gleefully informs her that they are the "Night Students." He casually mentions wanting to taste her. She doesn't know what that means, but the look in his eyes leads her to believe he might mean it literally. Just as she thinks running might be a good idea, she finds herself behind a Mr. Tall-Dark-Handsome. His name is Demetri and he clearly intimidates the others. First, he asks the young man if he heard him correctly. Did the word taste cross his lips? He then commands all of his classmates to say nothing about Phoenix to anyone before taking her away, an order that shocks them all.

Demetri leads her straight away to a secret passage that connects the library to the chemistry lab. After introducing her to a young mad scientist reminiscent of Topher Brink (Dollhouse), her savior ingests a half-dollar size pill and then he drives Phoenix home. He promises that the Headmaster needn't know about her breaking curfew if she promises to never miss curfew again. In doing so, he unknowingly breaks the first rule of Phoenix...never tell her what not to do.

If I could fill out an order form for the perfect novel, the result would be Taste. Kate Evangelista had me hooked from the very first sentence. She begins with a flawed first-person narrator in an acute, undesirable situation before immediately turning up the danger factor. Through Phoenix, she reveals to the reader a parallel world that is subtly sinister on the surface, with a separate cast of players that arrives and departs with the sun. From there peels back the layers on this world that lies behind and beneath Barinkoff Academy as if they were the petals of a flower. The pacing is like a choreographed dance between Phoenix, Demetri, and two other Night Students named Dray and Luka. The dialog is precisely to my liking; saying just what it needs to, at the right time and in the right way.

From the very first word, the details build into a steady crescendo of tension, along the main plot, the romantic arcs, and underlying subplots. When the climax hits, the strings start popping one by one, dropping the story by degrees, as if it were a weight suspended from them.

Through it all, Evangelista's cast never drops character. Demetri is stoic, duty bound and passion driven, and keeps his priorities straight to a fault. Luka, his diametrically opposed frenemy, is carefree, careless, and manages to be deep and shallow at the same time. Phoenix's wealth and privilege aside, she is sad, confused, curious, and intimately aware of how unfair life can be. The author's voice is pitch-perfect.

I would recommend Taste to fans of Beth Revis's Around the Universe, with a word of caution. Hold onto something, or this book may well blow you away.

Phoenix McKay finds outs why curfew is at sunset at Barinkoff Academy, there's only one rule: no students on campus after curfew. Here Phoenix finds a group of students walking the halls and finds herself in a predicament. They threaten to taste her flesh - - until along comes Demitri - he is handsome and alluring. Pale skinned, dark eyes and hair and Phoenix find that she not only is mesmerized by his aura but his irresistible demeanour. ** he is her knight in shining armour so to speak ** swoon -

However Luka has other plans for Phoenix, he is charming and sexy - and full of mischief. Luka takes Phoenix into a world that she never knew existed. Phoenix is caught between a deadly secret she wants to find out about, her attraction to these mysterious boys and an ancient civilisation living beneath Barinkoff Academy. She maybe the cure to their very existence.

Drays means well, asking Phoenix for her help but in the meantime , the reason for her being there may just be the fuel that Vladimir needs to fuel them into a centuries old feud.

My thoughts!!!

Wow!!! I devoured this story in almost one sitting. Kate has a winner with this Novel - certainly an intriguing and mysterious story filled with its own unique plot and storyline. Kate has created a world of her own - incomparable with any story currently shelved atm - and certainly unmatched by any other. A different spin off on a Flesh eating race. As gory as it sounds, it certainly is not put forth this way. Characters that will draw you into the pages and a read you will find you won't be able to put down.

Kate has created her characters with depth and definition - loyalty and courage. Phoenix I found to be an enjoyable character, very likeable by all means.

The chemistry between Demitri and Phoenix will make your heart flutter - and have you sheepishly grinning at the same time. At times I wanted to sock him one - but other times wanted to just melt into his cotton shirt .. ** sigh -**

Luka is sinfully sexy in his own way - he is honest and straight forward .. I was certainly town between these two boys !

The hotties that Kate has thrown in to give us a love trio are smoking hot and definably hard to choose upon. All the characters that Kate has put forth are well defined and put forth in this story giving it depth and certainly character to the storyline. I must say even the evil was depicted exactly that!

A few twists and turns are thrown in giving the reader a wahhoooooooooooo!! Ending ... that will not only have your heart aflutter but your eyes sparkling with **** An ending that is unpredictable where the reader is hoping there just maybe another continuous on from this one. Certainly not needed as Kate has wrapped the story up beautifully.

The storyline alone was certainly mesmerizing - who would think someone could turn flesh eating creatures into such an in-depth read that will keep you hooked till the last page has been turned. ** You must read to understand ** But this is certainly not your normal flesh eating blood and gore story you will be amazed at what Kate has created!! A world of the Zhamuy - an ancient feud - and possibly a secret that will cause all to cease to exist...

Smooth flowing dialogue and chapters that flow from one to the next and a read that will certainly have you in awe.

Action, adventure, suspense , romance, intrigue, fantasy, lies, friendships ,loyalty, secrets and even heart felt moments are all contained within this story ! A must read Ya story recommended to all.

Pst - dont you just love the cover !!!! I do !!

2.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas TSTL Main Character 10 de julio de 2012
Por Angie - Publicado en Amazon.com

but unfortunately she lives. Phoenix the main female in this book had me hoping she would just perish in the end. The beginning of the book starts out with her being upset and properly afraid of what would happen because she accidentally broke the first rule. She is immediately thrust into a scary situation that takes her hours to finally make it to where she needs to be to do what? Repeat it the next night because she is curious. What! She does these unbelievably stupid things throughout the book. If she is told to keep her eyes down she looks. If she is told to run she stays. If she is told to keep quiet she talks. If she is told to stay hidden she jumps out yelling surprise (OK I am exaggerating this last one but you get the picture). She does not care about her safety or the safety of others and I never got an idea as to why she would be so reckless. The TSTL moments really ruined the book for me.
The story is similar to other books out. Two guys who like the female main character for whatever unknown reason. Female right in the middle of the drama and much of the cause of said drama. There are some interesting aspects to the story but not enough to make up for the unbelievable main character especially for the price of the book :(

2.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Cool Story Premise, Overshadowed By Distracting Main Character and Believability issues 24 de mayo de 2012

I don't like giving low ratings, but I veered between giving this book a 1 star up to a 3 star rating depending on where I was in the book. I purchased this book based on the summary and the high ratings, plus the fact that I enjoy reading YA paranormal romance. This was another take on flesh-eaters or zombies, but it had an interesting premise reminiscent of the "Vampire Knight" manga (***mild spoilers in parentheses***which features a Day School and a Night School of unique students and a lot of political intrigue).

I liked the plot, the world-building, the action sequences, the male protagonists and even the "mad" scientist in the mix. The problem was that I had a hard time liking Phoenix, the female protagonist. She had some great snarky thoughts, but she generally annoyed me throughout the entire book. While I get that she's a tortured or troubled teen so she's behaving accordingly, she repeatedly does things that are all about her needs and gets instantly mad / irritated / rebellious / reckless the moment that she's asked/told not to do something for her safety. She has a temper, and she has difficulty reigning it in so that she's constantly getting herself and others into trouble or danger, yet somehow it works out through circumstance. I get that she's had a difficult time with something that happened in her family, but the same scene is repeated at least four times in the first half of the book and I never feel the pain, I'm just told what happened.

I got to the point where I wanted to stop reading, but made myself finish the book. However, things started picking up near the last 30% of the book, and I was really hopeful that things would turn around. Unfortunately, we move from a Phoenix that is still stubborn and somewhat immature, to one who suddenly has a strong opinion on who should lead this different race of people based on very little information and again mainly based on her own needs.

Although this is perhaps minor compared to the main character, I also had a hard time understanding why the two male leads, who were described as beautiful and clearly very powerful in this world, were so into Phoenix. It was this strange insta-love that didn't make sense, and somehow Phoenix's safety became more important than other priorities that had been building in this alternate world.

Overall, I like the story premise and wish I liked this book more, but I just couldn't stay hooked because of my concerns with the main character and some believability issues.

I absolutely enjoyed reading this book.It was very intriguing.Kate puts a new spin on what we refer to as "zombies" also know as "flesh eaters".I have read a few books with zombies in the but not one that wholey about zombies.I heard good thins about this book and wanted to see for my self what all the rave was about. I was not sure if I would like it but once I started the book I was instantly drawn in.
Phoenix is a very trouble and broken girl,who is thrust into a world that is dangerous. Once she sees part of that world she is curios to know more. She runs into some "Night Students",when so accidentally ends up on campus after curfew.Why are their "Night Students" when no one is suppose to be on campus after curfew?Why do they keep making references to tasting me?
Phoenix is a very dynamic character.She has a hard time with authority and lets whatever she is thinking slip out of her month.Inside is she broken and alone,but refuses to let anyone get close enough to penetrate the wall she has put around her heart.Once she is in Zhamvy City she must learn to watch what she says and decide if she will let someone in and if she does just who that someone will be.
Dimitri and Luka are almost total opposites but both want the same thing,Phoenix. Phoenix is instantly drawn to Dimitri who is a lot like her.They are both stubborn and go head to head in an argument. Dimitri,though he wishes to give into his desires,pushes those though selfish wants aside to fulfill his duty to his people.While Luka is the playful guy who doesn't always play by the rules.He is just as broken as she is. Luka runs from duty instead of embracing it.Dray believes he can use Phoenix to save his people but that may come at a higher price than any of them are willing to pay.Can she help Luka overcome his inner turmoil without falling for him .Can she help save a kingdom from dying without causing chaos that could tear it apart? Will she give her heart to Dimitri, Luka,or no one because she believes she is too broken to love and be loved?
