Book Review: Stargazer (Evernight Book 2) by Claudia Gray

Hardcover: 336 pages
Publisher: HarperTeen; 1 edition (March 24, 2009)

From GoodReads:

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....

Stargazer is a great continuation of Evernight. Bianca's relationships with Lucas, Balthazar, and her parents become complicated and takes her on an emotional roller coaster. I particularly enjoyed reading more about Balthazar...he is pretty hard to resist. Evernight has become dangerous, particularly for Bianca and she is trying to discover why that is. I don't want to reveal too much but just know that it is pretty exciting. The ending is a bit of a stunner so I am glad that I already have a copy of Hourglass (Book 3) or else I would drive myself crazy with anticipation.
