Bianca’s parents force her to attend Evernight Academy, an eerie school where vampires learn about the modern world. Evernight doesn’t admit humans…until this year. Check out Evernight by Claudia Gray.

Leaving Home

Bianca doesn’t want to leave her small hometown. But when her parents are hired as professors at Evernight Academy, Bianca must say goodbye to the only life she’s ever known.

Evernight Academy

When she arrives at Evernight Academy, Bianca knows she won’t fit in. The building, with its looming towers, eerie stone gargoyles and cathedral-like great hall, looks more like a “Fortress of the Damned” than a school. And when the students arrive, her worst fears are confirmed. They’re all beautiful, sophisticated teenagers with perfect hair and snobby attitudes—the very opposite of Bianca.


The Escape

Bianca desperately wants to escape the creepy academy. During the night, she runs away. While heading through the foggy school grounds, she spots a man following her. He chases her and tackles her to the ground. And only then does Bianca realize that he’s not a man at all—he’s a student.


Lucas

Like Bianca, Lucas is new to Evernight Academy. They develop a friendship that quickly evolves into an irresistible first love. But Lucas isn’t like others guys. Sure, he’s charming and handsome. But he’s also quick tempered, overprotective and always ready to fight[/kwlink]. He and Bianca stick together until a huge discovery about their families threaten to tear them apart.


The Bottom Line

This book puts a new spin on Romeo and Juliet—Lucas and Bianca come from two conflicting worlds. But unlike Shakespeare’s classic play, this story deals with immortality, or more specifically, vampires.

Evernight contains two dramatic twists, one bad and one good. The author made a very poor choice—she waited nearly half the book to reveal an important secret about Bianca, the narrator. It’s frustrating for a reader to have to relearn the main character’s past after having spent so much time looking through her eyes and hearing her thoughts.

Aside from the one large flaw, the book is well-written. The intense climax will leave you debating whether or not to read the second book in the series.


Evernight Rating: 3
