This was a fun read for Halloween! It has all the “monsters” you can think of: dragons, unicorns, were-tigers, centaurs, gargoyles, faeries, goblins, the list goes on and on.

She has done all the right things, good grades, lots of extracurricular activities, helped run her grandfathers flower shop, etc. Every year her grandfather attends Reunions Weekend at his Alma mater, only this year he is bring Lily and her mother along. Finally Lily will get to see her dream school first hand and her grandfather promises a big surprise is waiting for her there.
She has been selected to take the super secret Legacy Test. If she passes its automatic admision to Princeton. All she has to do is find the Ivy Key! Only....what is the Ivy Key? Shortly after she sets off on her hunt she is joined by Tye, who claims he is her guard. Soon the trail leads her to things she never imagined existed. There are two Princetons - one she has always known and a magical one. The Ivy Key opens the gate between the two.

This book was full of twists and turns: family secrets, betrayals, and two hot college boys who have more in common then Lily's affections. I really enjoyed reading this and I recommend it to someone looking for a quick fun read.
