Book Blurb:

After escaping from Evernight Academy, the vampire boarding school where they met, Bianca and Lucas take refuge with Black Cross, a fanatical group of vampire hunters. Bianca must hide her supernatural heritage or risk certain death at their hands. But when Black Cross captures her friend-the vampire Balthazar-hiding is no longer an option.

Soon, Bianca and Lucas are on the run again, pursued not only by Black Cross, but by the powerful leaders of Evernight. Yet no matter how far they travel, Bianca can’t escape her destiny.

Bianca has always believed their love could survive anything . . . but can it survive what’s to come?

My Thoughts:

The 3rd book of the Evernight series picks up with Bianca and Lucas now hiding out with the Black Cross. Hoping this is only temporary until they can make it on their own, they are struggling to keep the truth (that she is a vampire) from these Vampire hunters. Thanks to a tip, Mrs. Bethany and a crew of vamps locate the Black Cross and attack for revenge, forcing Bianca and Lucas to run for their lives. When Bianca starts feeling a little strange, Lucas puts his pride aside and asks Balthazar for help.

Ok, bad news is that we are left with a cliffhanger, good news is there is a book #4 AFTERLIFE and she’s working on Balthazar’s book! Claudia has a great knack for sucking the reader into her world, I’ve gotten totally immersed in this series. The action began on page one and kept going. The twists and turns, the love story – this book has it all. If you ever questioned who was right for Bianca, Balthazar/Lucas this may put you at ease, as their love for each other is tested time and time again. Let’s just say the ending was shocking. Once I finished the book, I wanted more. I feel like a junkie looking for their next fix :S

  • I give this book a full 5 of 5 bookies!
