Fear University ( Fear University #1) By Meg Collett

Fear University
Fear University #1
by Meg Collett

Synopsis from Goodreads:

I’ve always known I was a monster, and I don’t mean some teenage vampire shit either.

My mother abandoned me when I was ten years old because I have a freakish mutant disease that makes me incapable of feeling pain. I bounced from one foster family to another because too many people like to test my medical condition in a game of “Try To Make Ollie Scream.” At sixteen, I killed a man for taking that game too far.

Two years later, I’m still on the run in Kodiak, Alaska. Here, I’m the most dangerous person around, until I come face to face with a creature that should only exist in folklore. The monster is an aswang, and I, with my medical anomaly, am uniquely qualified to hunt the beast that haunts the night. At least, that’s what the two scarred, mostly crazy ‘swang hunters tell me when they kidnap me and take me to Fear University, a school where young students learn to hunt and kill aswangs.

I arrive at the university a prisoner, but I stay because I finally find my freedom. 

For once in my life, I belong. I’m needed. I make a home for myself inside the university masquerading as an old Alaskan prison. Something close to happiness warms my icy heart when I’m with my scarred, still mostly crazy tutor, Luke Aultstriver. For a murdering runaway like me, Fear University is a haven where I can put my skills to good use hunting monsters in the night.

But when certain truths come to light and even more lies are exposed, I fear that I, Ollie Andrews, am the worst kind of monster of all. And, maybe, they should be hunting me.

My Review:
5/5 Stars

* I got this for my honest review*

Loved this book. It has an interesting take on the whole “werewolves”/“vampire” fantasy using a different mythological creature. 

Ollie has an interesting issue that her foster families had taken advantage of. She has fought them and fought a lot in her life. When Ollie comes in contact with a monster that feeds on fear she being herself fights that and finds her self in contact with some hunters from Fear University and the Dean of the university wants her, but for what reason? And is Ollies ability a medical condition or is it something else. 

This book has an interesting story, light romance, a kick butt humorous female, Some awesome dudes, plenty of action scenes, moments when some heart wrenching stuff comes forward,wonderful suspense and a cliffhanger that’ll make you excited for the next book. 

I picked it up and couldn't put it down until I finished it. It had me turning the pages until the early morning.
