Her parents took jobs at the Academy moving her from her life. With a chip on her shoulder she reluctantly attends not realizing she is about to find out that some truths about who she is has been hidden from her.

Bianca meets Lucas right away and he is different from everyone else she encounters. Lucas though has his own mystery surrounding him and there are others trying to tear them apart. Will they be able too?

Intriguing read. Was not what I expected, a bit darker than your standard academy reads. I really liked Bianca, she beats to her own drummer and thought the whole back story was fascinating.

Great read, going to check out more in this series. I thought Evernight was good, I think the only thing that I didn't connect to was how abruptly it began and how abruptly it turned from what seemed like a non paranormal read turned into a supernaturally engrossed book.

That was probably mostly my fault because I grabbed this book on the spur of the moment because I got it for fifteen cents and I liked the cover. Yes, guilty I'm a cover buyer. There are a great many times I just look at a cover and I grab without ever having read to see what the book was about. This habit has lead to some great finds and not so great ones yet this is one that I felt was a good one. It did take me a little over half way into the book before I really felt drawn into the characters and the story which is why I think I went out and got the second book after the cliff hanger ending left me frustrated.

It wasn't a fantastic or exciting read for me but it was interesting none the less. I didn't feel the need to go beyond the second book just because it felt like it echoed many other YA paranormals I had been reading at the time so much that I felt like I was reading the same book over again. If you're into YA paranormal books this is a decent series to invest in but if you lean toward something more mature and exciting you might want to look somewhere else. Evernight started off "okay.

It was cute. He should know how afraid I am and be here to protect me! Bianca is afraid of all these high schoolers who seem too worldly and perfect to be true - you definitely get a sense of Bella Swan and the Cullen family in Twilight before she finds out they're vampires.

I'm fairly certain this is intentional by the author - Bianca is in awe of the stunningly beautiful and seemingly perfect rich people who populate her school. From there she wanders through her high school life and ends up going to the prom-like Autumn Ball with a guy named Balthazar!!

At the Ball she ends up ditching Balthazar and meets up with Lucas.

She has always known she is a vampire and the author was tricking us by not giving anything away! She drinks blood every morning for breakfast and her parents are hundreds of years old. E Okay, fine. Stupid plot twist designed to be a shock, but I'm willing to go with it.

Then you start learning more about her fellow students. Keep in mind she is at a boarding school with extremely strict rules and chaperones.

Parties are broken up, there are curfews, lots of rules, classes like normal high school kids would get history, chemistry, english, etc. Some of her fellow students are also hundreds of years old some are well over years old. Why does a year old vampire need to attend a boarding school where they get treated like children by vampires younger than them?

Then Bianca goes to a class where the teachers are giving instruction on how to use an ipod. So all of these year old vampires have been living in a hole since the middle ages and suddenly need to be taught how to use a cell phone and an ipod?

It's made very clear that these vampires are extremely wealthy and love to jetset around the world, skiing and doing other things wealthy people do. They have equestrian competitions and fencing competitions, so they're obviously already integrated into the "real" world. But they don't know how to use a microwave or a cell phone? It's stupid. And why do all these year old vampires act like catty teenage girls? The last few chapters once we find out the truth about Lucas is much more interesting and I wish the whole book had been more like that.

I may check out the sequels, as there hopefully won't be any ridiculous plot twists to screw things up. I picked this book up because Claudia Gray will be at a book signing I'm going to so I wanted to read from a book from all the authors I was going to meet.

This book sounded pretty interesting to me. When I began reading I wasn't sure if the reader was suppose to know Bianca was a vampire or not but I don't think it actually comes out and says so until you are a good ways into the book. I ended up really enjoying this book. I was an interesting twist on a vampire novel. Vampires and a select few humans go to a boarding school but actuality the vampires are going to get a sort of update on the way the world works with vampires ranging from almost a century old to very young, like Bianca who is Of course she meets a boy, Lucas and they have an instant connection from the very beginning.

She attacks Lucas and wants to kill him, but Bianca stops her in time. Lucas calls for the rest of the Black Cross to come, so Bianca tells the girl to run away. Bianca and Balthazar make an arrangement; they pretend to be dating so Balthazar could get her off campus, since he is a trusted student, so she could meet Lucas while in return Bianca and Lucas help Balthazar find his sister, Charity which they do.

On their way out of the school they meets Charity who they think will kill them but as they prepare to run she is pushed against a tree and staked by a sharp branch. Although Lucas wants to finish her off he cannot find anything to destroy her with so agrees to leave her. Bethany later stages a break into the Black Cross cell to retrieve Bianca. Several members of Black Cross are killed including Lucas's step father Eduardo whose neck is broken by Mrs.

In the attack Balthazar is captured and tied up by Black Cross who begin to torture him to find out why Mrs. Bethany attacked Black Cross. Bianca and Lucas begin orchestrating Balthazar's escape which they do so without getting caught. After the break in by Mrs. Bethany, Bianca needs to feed so they go to a hospital to get blood for Bianca from the blood bank. They are interrupted by Raquel and Dana who realize that Bianca is a vampire as she is feeding.

They both promise not to tell anyone but Bianca is woken in the night after someone told the Black Cross cell about Bianca's vampirism. She is tied up and burnt with holy water but Lucas is also splashed who burns due to him feeding Bianca. Dana helps them escape and gives them some money but tells Black Cross they escaped. After Lucas realizes there is a dangerous vampire in the city they are staying in, he decides to hunt it. Lucas finds the rogue vampire but after following him to a hotel room realizes that Charity, Balthazar's sister, is staying close by with her clan who the rogue vampire belongs to.

Bianca and Lucas begin to run out of money and go to their friend Vic for help who allows them to stay in the basement. They both escape and later get jobs. Lucas offers to allow Bianca to kill him but she refuses as he would not agree to rise with her. Bianca appears to Lucas telling him about her becoming a wraith. Lucas, Ranulf and Vic who have returned from holiday agree to assist Balthazar in killing Charity. They track her down to a rundown cinema where they fight and kill several members of her clan.

While Bianca is solid she is injured by Charity, causing her to loses her solidity. Charity, Bianca and Lucas are alone and as Bianca is powerless she pins down Lucas before draining his blood killing him. Charity leaves and Balthazar and Ranulf arrive who tell Bianca of Lucas's fate, he will become the one thing he despises, a vampire.

He is described as handsome and extremely popular amongst his peers. He always says hello to people in the hallway, whether human or vampire, deciding that it didn't make a difference. Balthazar has only taken a human life once that is mentioned, at least and he had never stopped tourturing himself for it.

Bianca's parents adore Balthazar and Bianca had come to realize he was one of her closest friends, but felt that he deserved more than what she was giving him, wishing that he could find happiness with someone else.

Bianca can talk to Balthazar about nearly anything. Bianca states that he was the only vampire who'd never lied to her, but added that he'd done most of the lying to himself. Lucas is jealous of Balthazar during Stargazer, when Balthazar and Bianca are at Evernight and have to pretend to date in order to get off campus and Lucas rarely gets to see her, saying that he's upset another guy gets to spend more time with her.

He is the brother of Charity and her maker which is the biggest regret in his life. Evernight[ edit ] When attending the same party he befriends Bianca who he asks to the Autumn Ball. There, he, Lucas and Bianca get into an argument, and while Balthazar leaves them alone Bianca gives in to temptation and bites Lucas, drinking his blood.

Her parents and Balthazar realize this and attack, but Lucas holds his own against the two vampires and they chase him off campus.

Stargazer[ edit ] Bianca goes into Amherst and is walking along to find Lucas when a young vampire girl joins her in her walk.

When she sneaks back, Balthazar catches her.

Soon Bianca and Balthazar make an arrangement; they pretend to be dating so Balthazar could get her off campus, since he is a trusted student, so she could meet Lucas while in return Bianca and Lucas help Balthazar find his sister, Charity which they do.

She is now part of a clan and blames Balthazar for killing her.

In Afterlife, she helps Lucas with his transformation and shows more kindness toward him than she'd ever had to anyone at the school, including Balthazar, due to the fact that she could strongly relate to what he was going through.
