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 picked this book up, because I had read Evernight, and I wanted to read the rest of the series. The cover wasn’t really the reason why I wanted this book, because to be honest, I didn’t really think it looked that good.
The plot was better that the one from the first book. There was this kind of Romeo and Juliet feeling about this book, but at some point it annoyed me. Yet, it got better as the book went on. The ending wasn’t really great, but it made me want to read the third novel of this series.
The characters are starting to annoy me. Bianca acts so stupid sometimes, and Lucas makes me hope that he will get kill by a vampire. I spent the whole books hoping that she would at some point get with Balthazar, because I really like him.
The writing was okay. I’ve seen better, but I can’t really say that it was a negative point of the book. The rhythm of the story was good, as there weren’t too many slow moments.
Overall, I would give it a 7/10.
Peace, love and lots of books!
