Unwelcome by Michael Griffo
Archangel Academy is more than a school to Michael Howard. Within its majestic buildings and serene English grounds, he's found friends, new love, and a place that feels more like home than Nebraska ever did. But the most important gift of Archangel Academy is immortality. . .
Life as a just-made vampire is challenging for Michael, even with Ronan, an experienced vamp, to guide him. Michael's abilities are still raw and unpredictable. To add to the turmoil, the ancient feud between rival vampire species is sending ripples of discord through the school. And beneath the new headmaster's charismatic front lies a powerful and very personal agenda.
Yet the mysteries lurking around the Academy pale in comparison to the secrets emerging from Michael's past. And choosing the wrong person to trust—or to love—could lead to an eternity of regret. . .

Unwelcome was a good book, I find that it shows not only the wickedness in people that hate you but also the wickedness in people closest to you. In this story you are able to see that even people who love you can betray you without even knowing or by doing it unwillingly. It shows that even as you shower someone with hatefulness they can still find love and even with secrets their love can grow. If people would learn from their problems they would be able fine each other and love each other better.
I think this book was a little slow in the beginning and that that the main character is not really learning anything useful. I also believe that the father of the main character is a little uneven. I am hoping that these books get better over time.
