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....

BOOK REVIEW:

By now you should have read ' Evernight ' and gotten POWed!! and are deciding if you are Team Lucas or Team Balthazar. After 'Evernight' it can be a little confusing what Team you are on as Balthy is rather gorgeous and Lucas is in Bianca's heart but ....

Courtney is still little miss bitchy,  but, I believe in Karma and well .....
You will be introduced to Ranulf more. I love Ranulf. Another side character but a cutie. Over 1,000 yrs old , basin hair cut and modern technology challenged...bless him:)

When Bianca starts seeing a mysterious girl, things start to become very puzzling for Bianca. Strange things are happening around Bianca at Evernight.

Vic is still up for giving the Evernight dress code a shake up hawaiian style...lol!! and just being that all round great guy.

Bianca's true nature ..or not....* wiggles eyebrows* starts to shine through with a rather naaasssty mouse scene..hee..hee.
Bianca is starting to break rules and is looking for answers.

6 months have passed since Bianca has seen Lucas and secret rendezvous are inevitable. A new character comes into play who we have a nickname for ..but I will tell that later.

Lucas's life comes to the foreground and an understanding of why he is a hot head at times is revealed. I felt sorry for Lucas and the life he has been forced to live and believe in without hesitation.

I love Balthazar's plan to make it easy for Bianca to get off campus. Emotionally for Balthazar it may not be a great idea.

Just loved the Autumn Ball scene and all the waltzing, visually it would look spectacular. Balthazar lets a little too much be revealed of his emotions.

There are 2 scenes in this book that have you going ...OMG!!! and ..*fans oneself rather vigorously*



Bianca is starting to piece together her theory on human students and Vampire students at Evernight Academy. Mrs Bethany is up to something. My heart was starting to tug at Balthazar and his feelings for Bianca.

This book is jam packed with fast paced storyline. Soooo much happens . Prepare to be POWed!! and the twists...DUCK!!!! they may hit you in the face.

Ms Gray does not hold back on the storyline. I warn you .....and the Nummy Num Num!!  ( think about it you will work out what Nummy Num Num is...)

FAVE QUOTES:

"Oh , man, I thought I was going to interrupt some crazy monkey sex in here. Figured at least I'd get flashed for my trouble."

"I'm supposed to schedule your next secret rendezvous, which , I gotta tell you, makes me feel a little dirty."

  2. I'll be converted once I read Balthazar the book, I am sure . Currently we can look uber groovy each with our Team Lucas and Team Balthy ( yours with a black duckie on the front) T-shirts:)
