Book Review #626 - Afterlife (Evernight #4) by Claudia Gray


My Rating: 2.5/5

Source: Bought

Buy: The Book Depository


Destiny awaits Bianca and Lucas . . .

Bianca and Lucas have always believed they could endure anything to be together. When a twist of fate not only transforms Bianca into a wraith but also turns Lucas into a vampire—the very creature he spent his life hunting—they are left reeling.

Haunted by his powerful need to kill, Lucas can turn to only one place for help . . . Evernight Academy. Bianca is determined to remain with him. But with the vampire leader of Evernight waging a war against wraiths, her former home has become the most dangerous place she could be, despite the new powers her ghostly transformation has given her.

A battle between wraiths and vampires looms, and Bianca and Lucas face a terrifying new reality. They've overcome every obstacle life has thrown at them, but is their love strong enough to survive the challenges after life?

This is the fourth book in the Evernight series and is the sequel to Evernight, Stargazer and Hourglass. 

I am not sure if it is because I read these books so close together or not but so many things in this book annoyed me. 

The relationship between Bianca and Lucas took too much of the focus in this book and I really don't like romance driven books in general so I didn't like that aspect at all. 

The major plots from the previous books like the conflicts with Charity and the Black Cross were all finished in Hourglass and so this book had no direction which is why it is probably so romance focused. 

I found Bianca and Lucas's transitions into their new lives interesting especially Bianca's but would have liked this to have been introduced earlier so there could have been more development. 

The ending was rather dissatisfying. It just ended with one of the most obvious plot twists I have ever read.
