Destiny awaits Bianca and Lucas . . .
Bianca and Lucas have always believed they could endure anything to be together. When a twist of fate not only transforms Bianca into a wraith but also turns Lucas into a vampire—the very creature he spent his life hunting—they are left reeling.
Haunted by his powerful need to kill, Lucas can turn to only one place for help . . . Evernight Academy. Bianca is determined to remain with him. But with the vampire leader of Evernight waging a war against wraiths, her former home has become the most dangerous place she could be, despite the new powers her ghostly transformation has given her.
A battle between wraiths and vampires looms, and Bianca and Lucas face a terrifying new reality. They've overcome every obstacle life has thrown at them, but is their love strong enough to survive the challenges after life?
My rating: 3 stars of 5
Dry, annoying, boring
Too mushy gushy
Ending was unpredictable
Unfortunately, this book took me forever to finish. Forever. I won't give you guys the whole excuse of, "It took me awhile to finish because school got in the way". No. I just wasn't that interested and man, Lucas and Bianca got on my nerves. . . .
Lucas is a vampire now and is seeking help. Evernight is his only sanctuary but Bianca is now a wraith and from recent discovery, Mrs. Bethany has traps for wraiths all over the school. While trying to show Lucas' mother that he's not a monster (Which doesn't turn out well) and figuring out what's going on with Mrs. Bethany, Bianca finally meets this "Christopher" that Maxie is always talking about. He isn't what she thinks he would have been like. . . . Lucas begins gaining trust with Mrs. Bethany and she reveals to him the secret she's been keeping.
While I found this book to be an easy read, I was annoyed by the drama and Bianca's unnecessary jealousy. I was annoyed with Bianca and Lucas. Period. They just seemed to be either extremely gross mushy gushy or pissed off at each other. Nothing inbetween. Mrs. Bethany's secret was surprising, honestly, the whole ending was not predictable at all.
I'm going to rap this up and make it short, sweet, and not sugar coated: I thought this book was boring and I was tired of the couple. The conflict with Charity was kind of just thrown away at the last few chapters and I was annoyed with how everything was settled. The ending was good though, I was satisfied. This has never been my favorite series but the last book was pretty damn good so I figured this one would be, too. I found this book to be kind of dry but that's just me. Claudia Gray is coming out with a book about Balthazar and yes I'll read it but will I get it and get all super geeked and excited? Probably not. Claudia Gray is an OK writer and this was an OK book.
