At the eerily Gothic Evernight Academy, the other students are sleek, smart, and almost predatory. Bianca knows she doesn't fit in.
When she meets handsome, brooding Lucas, he warns her to be careful--even when it comes to caring about him. But the connection between them can't be denied. Bianca will risk anything to be with Lucas, but dark secrets are fated to tear them apart . . . and to make Bianca question everything she's ever believed.
Gr 8 Up-Bianca has been uprooted from her happy, uneventful life to start anew at an elite boarding school where her parents will now be professors. Even though Bianca doesn't feel that she is the Evernight type-rich, beautiful, or gifted-she knows that her parents feel this is best for her. She and Lucas Ross share a special connection from the moment they meet and he, like Bianca and a few others, is an outsider. He is a rebel who is on a mission to discover the secret behind Evernight Academy. As the weeks progress, their relationship heats up. What they don't realize, however, is that they each harbor a great secret that could divide them forever. Can their love survive the truth? Gray's writing hooks readers from the first page and reels them in with surprising plot twists and turns, and the open ending will keep them guessing and waiting on the edge of their seats for the next book in the series. A must-have for fans of vampire stories by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes, Stephenie Meyer, and the like.-Donna Rosenblum, Floral Park Memorial High School, NY Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
"Teenage love, ancient hatred and a Romeo and Juliet-style feud fuel the fires in this compelling first-person drama."--Romantic Times BOOKclub
An excellent book, one of my all-time-favorites for sure! Evernight boarding school is isolated in the middle of nowhere, away from the modern world and away from the old life Bianca Oliver knew. Student at Evernight were too perfect, straight hair, beautiful faces...like you see in movies only for Bianca it was real. She instantly felt like she didn't belong there, but Bianca soon meets Lucas and with all the bad things at Evernight at least one thing seems good. Except there are secrets at Evernight that will change Bianca's life, but will it be for the best or worst?
I fell in love with the Evernight series right from book one. The story is well told and the most unexpected twist in the middle. this seris will keep you guessing right up till the very end. It was very easy to be enchanted by the love story of Bianca and Lucus, and be drawn into the world of Evernight Academy.
this book read a lot like twilight. similar story line, same targetted age group, same themes - personal developemnt, love, betrayal etc. although i'm a fan of both, i think the genre is being massacred by these books, yet i still can't put them down...highly highly addictive and a great read!!
In the sudden saturation of teen vampire books this is definatley one of the better ones. Its Bianca's first year at Evernight a gothic bording school her parents have taken jobs at. Bianca is n ot happy to be there till she meets Lucas. neither of them really fit in but do make a few friends to make it a bareable place to be. There is a twist about a quarter in which was not what I had guessed it would be. The story of first love with the confusing of feelings & needs is more believable in this book than it was in Twilight. Was getting sick of all these teeny vamp stories other than the series by P C Cast but am looking forward to Stargazer.
I loved this book so much I could not put it down - it only took me 8 hours to get through it (everything else can wait believe me) Hold onto your hats kids! there is a twist you just don't see coming but what a ride. I loved twilight but I loved this just as much and am waiting for book No. two to come in the mail(ordered it two minutes after I finished this one) you will too.
