This book is a fascinating look at the dark magic lurking in the underworld of one of America’s most elite Ivy League schools. Galaxy “Alex” Stern is an unlikely member of Yale’s freshman class – her checkered past includes dead-end jobs, loser drug-dealing friends and being the sole survivor of an unsolved multiple homicide. While recovering in the hospital, she receives an offer to attend Yale for free as long as she joins a group that monitors the school’s eight secret societies. She accepts even though she doesn’t know why she was chosen. Once on campus, she learns about Yale’s secret societies that play with magic and prey on the living. Alex struggles to keep up with school and those around her when she realizes she has an ability to see “Grays” – earthbound ghosts. A local girl is murdered and her mentor disappears and that’s when the action really begins.
