Evernight by Claudia Gray

May 4th, 2009 by Debbie's World of Books


I give this book a 3 out of 5 stars.

Description: When the story begins in Evernight, Bianca has just left the small town where she’s spent her whole life. She’s a new student at Evernight Academy, a creepily Gothic boarding school where her classmates are somehow too perfect: smart, sleek and almost predatory. Bianca knows she doesn’t fit in.

Then she meets Lucas, another loner, who seems fiercely determined not to be the “Evernight type.” There’s a connection between Bianca and Lucas that can’t be denied. She would risk anything to be with him—but dark secrets are fated to tear them apart… and to make Bianca question everything she’s ever believed to be true.

I have mixed feelings about this book.  I picked it up actually because I read the blurb about Stargazer and it sounded great.  While Evernight was not bad it did not really grab me and pull me into the story.  Bianca’s and Lucas’s characters were ok but it was the supported cast that caught my interest.  I really would like to learn more about Balthazar and I really like Vic and Raquel.

The twist of who Lucas really is was interesting and what Bianca is hiding about Evernight from Lucas was a shock.   So I do want to see how this affects Luke’s and Bianca’s relationship.  I will still pick up Stargazer since the concept of this series sounds exciting and I know the first books in series generally do have to do a lot of set up.  So I am withholding judgment on the series until I read Stargazer.  Sorry for the wishy-washy review but I really don’t feel strongly one way or another.
