Synopsis by Barnes and Noble:
The vampire in me was closer to the surface . . .
Evernight Academy: an exclusive boarding school for the most beautiful, dangerous students of all—vampires. Bianca, born to two vampires, has always been told her destiny is to become one of them.
But Bianca fell in love with Lucas—a vampire hunter sworn to destroy her kind. They were torn apart when his true identity was revealed, forcing him to flee the school.
Although they may be separated, Bianca and Lucas will not give each other up. She will risk anything for the chance to see him again, even if it means coming face-to-face with the vampire hunters of Black Cross—or deceiving the powerful vampires of Evernight. Bianca's secrets will force her to live a life of lies.
Yet Bianca isn't the only one keeping secrets. When Evernight is attacked by an evil force that seems to target her, she discovers the truth she thought she knew is only the beginning. . . .
I am running out of words to describe how fantastic books are, so again I will say Wow! The sequel to Evernight is more than I could have asked for! I was drawn in from the beginning as Bianca faces the new callenges of her life without Lucas and her mew life with Balthazar. The book is full of secret meetings as well as deceit and lies. I found myself sitting on the edge of my seat until the end. A new threat arises in this book and it is all Evernight can do to keep it's students as well as it's secrets safe. I loved this book. It took time to explain everything and then to draw yo uin deeper than you thought possible. I cannot wait for the next installment.
Recommendation: Anyone who enjoyed Evernight will want to continue on in this series.
Age: 14 and up
