"Destiny awaits Bianca and Lucas. . .
Bianca and Lucas have always believed they can endure anything to be together. When a twist of fate not only transforms Bianca into a wraith but also turns Lucas into a vampire- the very creature he spent his life hunting- they are left reeling. Haunted by his powerful need to kill, Lucas can only turn to one place for help. . . Evernight Academy. Bianca is determined to remain with him. But with the vampire leader of Evernight raging a war against wraiths, her former home has become the most dangerous place she could be, despite the new powers her new ghostly transformation has given her. A battle between wraiths and vampires looms, and Bianca and Lucas face a terrifying new reality. They've overcome every obstacle life has thrown at them, but is their love strong enough to survive the challenges after life?"
So, one thing this synopsis is missing is the word conclusion or finale or end. I still can't get myself to except that the Bianca-Lucas story is over!
Plot: Overall, the plot was pretty good. I think Claudia Gray spent a little too much time in the beginning, and rushed the big ending, but other than that, the plot was great.
Main Characters: Who here loves Lucas? *raises hand* I love Lucas! He is sarcastic, sweet, loyal (and not to mention pretty good looking if I do say so myself.) Bianca has the perfect guy ever! Then there's Bianca. So, she's stuck in her pj's the rest of her life. So, she sees no way to ever be technically alive again. Does that stop her from being optimistic? Of course not!
Cover: I love the color scheme! Grey makes the hot pink stand out, and for some reason, it looks so cool. It's cool how it matches with the other covers, and it's sad to think it will be the last...
Overall Rating: I am going to give this book a 3/4. I loved it, but it seemed as though the ending was too rushed and not explained enough. Though, I doubt any ending with the words "final book" on it could ever make me happy. Definitely read this A.S.A.P! If you haven't started the series? Read the first, Evernight, and have fun!Sweet Daydreams, Brooke P.S. Claudia Gray is coming out with a new, really interesting looking book called Fateful.
