Book Review-Firespell by Chloe Neill

This is just the same-old-same-old as far as paranormal YA books are concerned.

1-new girl has to go to boarding school away from family and friends
2-school is posh, gothic and creepy
3-school is ruled by bitchy girls who make life miserable
4-new best friend is not one of the popular crowd
5-girl feels out of her depth
6-book takes ages to get going
7-creepy things start to happen

*yawn*. In every Chloe Neill book there are such annoying characters and this is no exception. I never seem to connect with her female lead who is either pathetic or irritating or both. Scout is the only semi-interesting character in this one. The plot follows the usual line of the new girl not wanting to be at a school where everyone is posher than her and there are uber-bitches in residence, and we get chapter after chapter of slow plot building that gets very boring, with superficial characters you don't really care about. This book definitely comes under the predictable, same-plot YA clone book that I can't be bothered with. There is nothing new to offer and I'm not a fan of the writing style of this author.
