The vampire in me was closer to the surface...
Evernight Academy: an exclusive boarding school for the most beautiful, dangerous students of all—vampires. Bianca, born to two vampires, has always been told her destiny is to become one of them.
But Bianca fell in love with Lucas—a vampire hunter sworn to destroy her kind. They were torn apart when his true identity was revealed, forcing him to flee the school.
Although they may be separated, Bianca and Lucas will not give each other up. She will risk anything for the chance to see him again, even if it means coming face-to-face with the vampire hunters of Black Cross—or deceiving the powerful vampires of Evernight. Bianca's secrets will force her to live a life of lies.
Yet Bianca isn't the only one keeping secrets. When Evernight is attacked by an evil force that seems to target her, she discovers the truth she thought she knew is only the beginning....
I read Evernight some time ago now (in fact I think it was one of the first ever reviews I posted here on my blog back in 2011) and so I re-read it before diving into this one.
Evernight is such an intriguing setting.It gives off the feeling that it holds so many secrets and mysteries that are just waiting to be discovered.
My favourite aspect of this book is that we got introduced to the Black Cross - the vampire hunters that have taunted the vampires of Evernight for centuries.
More of Lucas's back story was also revealed and that ties in with the introduction of the Black Cross.
Bianca annoyed me a little in this book especially the way she treated her parents. I know that she was upset that they were not honest with her but I really loved their relationship in the first book and so I felt more sorry for her parents than for her when she decide to run off with Lucas. I found her actions rather immature.
