Bianca Wants To Escape She S Been Uprooted From Her Small Hometown And Enrolled At Evernight Academy, An Eerie Gothic Boarding School Where The Students Are Somehow Too Perfect Smart, Sleek, And Almost Predatory Bianca Knows She Doesn T Fit In Then She Meets Lucas He S Not The Evernight Type Either, And He Likes It That Way Lucas Ignores The Rules, Stands Up To The Snobs, And Warns Bianca To Be Careful Even When It Comes To Caring About HimI Couldn T Stand It If They Took It Out On You,he Tells Bianca,and Eventually They Would But The Connection Between Bianca And Lucas 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 I was surpised to realize that I completely enjoyed myself with this book It is somewhat of a Romeo Juliet story of star crossed lovers whose families are enemies, but with vampires The characters are sweet, secretive, and charming at the same time I loved Lucas throughout the entirety of the book, while it took me a little while to adjust to Bianca However, once I did I felt that the pairing of these two characters was meant to be I ended up being surprised twice during this book, which is exceedingly difficult for authors to do with me It is very rare for me to be truly surprised The fact that this author managed what very few authors dojust enhanced the book for me.I fully recommend reading this book I read it in one day, because I simply could not put it down I intend to begin the second book in the series tomorrow Sorry, guys I deleted this review because I basically explained the WHOLE damn story in it It was back when I was a shit reviewer But thank you for all those who read and like it I love you beautiful beings Okay, so how shall I put this I have a few issues with this book Kim is bothered.First of all I like subtlety I like surprises But altering your writing to deliberately hide something very important, never even hinting towards it even once and then suddenly go SURPRIIIIIISE is not my idea of writing a good story It would be the same thing if we suddenly find out Bianca has a penis Vampires are mentioned once during an English lit class Bianca bites Lucas and suddenly we learn Everybody is a vampire Bianca has always been a vampire Bianca was born that wayAnd from then on the word vampire is mentioned practically every other sentence Also, what s up with the humans They are supposed to be there to help the vamps adjust to the new world Which brings me to my next issue The vamps act like they lived under a rock for most of their long lives Yes the world changes, new inventions pop up left and right But it doesn t happen overnight If you need classes to learn how to use a microwave then I m seriously doubting the intelligence of the average vampire Yet they all act like they were zapped into this century Gee, I m only 27 and I wonder how on earth I managed to learn how to operate my iPod that has no wireless connection because that s EXACTLY what I d want to do on my tiny screen, check my email eyeroll in such a short amount of time.My other problem with the humans is why anybody would think it s a good idea to put a few walking and talking blood banks in the middle of a horde of hungry vamps I know it s mandatory in this kind of books, Bianca and Lucas have to be complete opposites, but the only reason for them going to the same school is because the mix of vampires, schools and forbidden love is hot right now Of course later we find out Bianca and Lucas are supposed to be archenemies, which makes it even difficult for them to stay out of each other s pants.What really bothered me is the explanation how Bianca can become a full vampire instead of a half baked version of one Oh you just slip into some old folks home and snack on the first sucker who looks nearly dead enough I m sorry what You d still be taking a life, I m sorry if being a vampire automatically comes with a god complex but it s still wrong to murder somebody.And last but not least There are 2 ways to become a vampire You are born one or you are made If a vampire bites you enough times you become a vampire yourself How many times is that exactly 4 times 10 times 50 times And does every time count or does this wear off like say if a vampire bites you 5 times in a short amount of time, does that effect a person in the same way as if it was done during a one year period And how come Lucas suddenly learned a few vampire tricks himself How are Bianca s powers transferred into him exactly And for a vampire slayer you d think he would be able do the math himself after she bit him so why did he get upset with Bianca when he found out what she was He could have been playing dumb but he seemed genuinely surprised when she came out of the coffin.I m reading the sequel to this because I hope it gets better or at least better thought through. Rant Every professional review of this book somehow mentions Stephenie Meyer and or the Twilight series Is it just me, or does that annoy anyone else seven ways to Sunday I get that people want to allude to some of the bestselling series of vampire books ever, but saying enjoyable for fans of that other vampire series who need something to read while they wait for Breaking Dawn Meyer, 2008 Kirkus is downright insulting, as it implies that Evernight is no better than a placeholder This angers me But hey, I m one to talk, huh, seeing as I m about to do the same The only comparison between the two books I think is appropriate to be made and the only one I ll ever make is that while it is Twilight s tagline that says deeply seductive and extraordinarily suspenseful, Twilight is a love story with bite , Evernight is the book that fits that bill I enjoyed Twilight, don t get me wrong, but let s call a spade a spade Twilight is marketable fluff with a suspense subplot and that s all it really is a subplot And even so, the suspense is predestined to end in Happily Ever After Ville, so, without ever having a doubt of where it s headed, can we really call it suspense Evernight, methinks, has real suspense in equal parts with romance.Moving on, as this rant is getting too long winded and distracting attention from the review itself.Don t let the beginning of this novel get to you This review click beware of spoilers had a spot on analysis of what was wrong with the first half it channels my thoughts exactly Basically, I felt like the beginning went one direction and then when the twist came, it veered another direction completely, and the two parts, together, were incomprehensible When I discovered midway through the novel that Bianca already knew and accepted that she was a vampire, I was ready to hurl the book across the room For one, it made no sense in synch with everything I d learned up to the that point If you were amidst an alien nation and you were one of the few humans in existence, wouldn t you think to yourself every once in a while, Hey, I m human I live with aliens, but I m still human I know this because I don t look like an oversized zygote How could she not even think about her diet differences with humans And for another thing, it was deceitful of Bianca to earn my sympathy through her lonely girl gripes about not fitting in at Evernight when she was in the majority, species wise Added to this is the dragging narrative found in this first portion some of which, by this time, I didn t see the point in.Now, judging by the fact this is earning four stars, something inside the book must ve worked, correct Right you are When I hit page 200 something and the catalyst finally appeared, I literally sat up on my bed and my eyes bulged out so much, I thought they d pop out of my head From there on out, a dozen little plot developments happened that changed the novel s progression in a way I didn t for a second see coming For every boring moment in the first half, the second half offered an complex setup, quick pacing, and really, really great discoveries I won t go too much in detail because I don t want to spoil anyone s reading experience, but I can guarantee you this The plot Brilliant Enigmatic, but balanced, and very well thought out.Remember in my criticizing paragraph that I said some of the stuff in the first portion didn t make much sense to me I meant Lucas s character he seemed to me like a gratuitous lover boy type , the sometimes over the top romance between Bianca and him, and a lot of details that made no sense whatsoever It was all a set up Nearly everything gets explained later on, and you can see the sheer genius behind this carefully strung story I mean, I still don t get why Bianca knew she was a vampire all along when it would ve been a much groundbreaking move in the overall scheme of things to have her find out along with the reader the reality of the situation, and that s what robbed this book of an A rating, but everything else FREAKING AWESOME.This book is perfect for people sick of the tried and tortured vampires are oh so sexy books that seem to dominate the YA vamp lit genre nowadays I am not kidding when I say the ideas Claudia Gray introduced here are very original and engaging I m bashing my head in at the re scheduling of Stargazer s release because I am desperately in the need to know what happens from here.Get This Book Ignore the first part, revel in the second part, and then come join the line of people awaiting Stargazer s launch, which is, of course, led by me I ll bite anyone who tries to cut ahead and I can t guarantee I won t drain you while I m at it.
