Balthazar (Evernight #5)
For hundreds of years, the vampire Balthazar has been alone—without allies, without love.
When Balthazar agrees to help Skye Tierney, a human girl who once attended Evernight Academy, he has no idea how dangerous it will be. Skye’s newfound psychic powers have caught the attention of Redgrave, the cruel, seductive master vampire responsible for murdering Balthazar and his f...more

I loved Balthazar from the Evernight series, and always felt bad for him. He didn't get the girl and he was so tortured by his past (the above quote is what he truly believes). So I was thrilled to hear that he was going to get his own story, and this does not disappoint.
Balthazar has been a vampire for about four hundred years. He was turned against his will by evil vampire, Redgrave. Redgrave forced Balth ...more
I'm spazzing in the way that it can not be controlled until I get my hands on this book and get more of Balthazar.
It is just too good to be true, but it is. SQUEEEEE!!!!
Oh yes, I just went all fan-girl. I regret nothing.
Skye Tierney has been seeing ghosts since she was a little girl, and for a while, she thought that her ability was the only supernatural thing out there. Afte ...more
BALTHAZAR was a great read. Maybe I've missed out on some of the backstory that would lend this one some extra magic, but I don't think so. Author Claudia Gray did such a ...more
In fact, if you want to reread Twilight, you can pick up this book instead! A hot vampire who has saving a foolish young girl from (her own, pfft) demise as a 24/7 non-paying occupation? Yep, this book has it.
With vampires on the heels of the female antagonist - oops, sorry- protagonist, Skye, I'm surprised (actually, not really) that her largest concern is actually whether her crush reciprocates her feelings or n ...more
O por lo menos que empieze otra saga en spin-off. Por lo menos.
Ha sido... uff, sorprendente. Balthazar como que... me hacia acordar a Tohrment despues de lo de Wellsie, osea la manera en la que actuaba con Autumn. Exactamente como Balthazar actuo despues de lo de Jane con Skye. Y era frustrante.
Ha tenido un final abierto. Y que wow, necesita una continuacion aunque se que eso solo traera mas sufrimiento.

Despite what the description says, I don’t think BALTHAZAR should be considered a stand-alone novel. I haven’t read the Evernight series and felt pretty lost in the beginning. There is a lot of history that I felt like I was supposed to know, not to mention characters and various previous relationships that significantly impacted this story. Eventually, I became invested enough that all the little holes didn’t bother me too much, but I can only image th ...more
I don’t read a lot of vampire books; in fact, I only read 2 vampire books so far. So it was good to add a GREAT vampire book to the other 2 previous books. Balthazar is described as “one of the most beloved characters in Claudia Gray’s New York Times bestselling Evernight series.” It was a good line to get me started to read this book. I wasn’t even half way through when I found out why EVERYBODY seemed to like him because I ended up liking him too.
Skye Tierney is adjusting to life after Evernight Academy. She's returned home to memories of her dead brother, an empty house and distant parents who are still grieving the loss of their son. If that wasn't enough, Skye has to attend her local high school with her ex-boyfriend and his new girlfriend. On top of that she has to deal with her new psychic powers which she got after willingly being possessed by Bianca..oh and she also has a vampire stalker intent on drinking her blood. ...more
Notas al pie (antes de la reseña)
Primero, un gif explicatorio:
Hace muchísimo tiempo por suerte (o desgracia) llegó a mis manos un libro que se llamaba Medianoche. Tenía una crepusculística portada que me dio mala espina. Pero a fin de cuentas fue un libro que como sabrán me entretuvo pero poco más. No tenía ni dinero ni ganas para seguir una saga de tres libros más así que hice cerebro flotante y me olvidé de ella.
Casualmente (seguramente producto del karma) hace poco recibí este libro regala ...more
Balthazar is one of those books that I know some of my friends would hate, but I found it an enjoyable read. A long time ago, I read Evernight, but I never continued on with the series. I don't think it was because I didn't like it; it was just one of those things I forgot about.
I've mentioned this before, but I'm not the kind of person who's tired of vampires and werewolves. I still love them just as much as I love any other types of books. (Except Fae books. I love those above all el ...more
In Evernight, Bianca gets attacked in the woods the day before she must start at a new school. In Balthazar, Skye gets attacked in the woods, this time she is on horseback ...more
So, what I loved most about this book is the awesome characters. Both main characters, Balthazar and Skye were freshly unique. It was goo d to read such a fantastic story along with amazing well written characte ...more

Oh Balthazar, you make me sigh,
For you, all guys, I will deny,
Your chiseled abs and brooding smirk,
Make daydreaming a lifelong perk.
Forget that Skye and come to me!
Bite my neck and set me free!
The thought of you, I am in awe,
I close my eyes, and oh la la!
So I was never one of those people that read and re-read Twilight over and over again, so I am not even close to bored of vampires yet…which is great, because otherwise I might not have read Balthaza ...more
As one of my favourite characters in the series, I was really looking forward to reading about Balthazar. I was unsure what we'd be getting from his story: Something old? Something new? Turns out it was a bit of both, and can I just say: Wow! Learning about Balthazar's past gave me chills; especially ...more
