I enjoyed the first one, but this one was even better. I can't wait for the third books to come out this summer. Heather Brewer's writing is witty, thoughtful, and humorous. When I read the the first book, I thought maybe it was more for boys than girls. I was wrong. I think anyone can relate to the emotions of growing up, trying to figure out who you are, and loyalty. I think these books are fantastic. I also helps the all the characters are likable. Too bad I'm not still a teenager, because Vlad and Henry sound hell of cute. ...more

I don't like to abandon a book, but find it hard not too when my interest isn't peeked. It did take almost the whole book for me to finally like it, but some people would have given up on it by then.
The ending made the wait worth it in my opinion and I'm glad I didn't stop reading. Plus, it's such a short book, almost like a short-story, it wasn't like I was wasting my time or anything.
My main objection was the feeling the characters and story weren't developed enough for my taste. Other then, the two main character's having to face death and finding one another in the eleven hour, it was almost too melodramatic. Also, I wasn't always fond of Zoe's constant whining, it reminded me of Bella in Eclipse and New Moon. The one redeeming quality of the book was Simon....more

Ones I love. I usually have something to say about a book, but this one, I'm not sure what I feel. I liked it in some ways, but at other times found myself wanting to stop reading. There has only been one book I never finished reading, but one day I will... so I find that I never want a book to go unread. I'm glad I finished it though. I was really surprised by the ending...didn't really see that coming.
I would have to really hate a book to give one or even two stars. I didn't actually hate this book. To be honest, the one thing that really killed this book for me was the one line used over and over again..."for moon's sake" and other moon references. I get it, they're werewolves and worship and howl at the moon. But, does that line have to be used in every other paragraph. Okay, maybe that was a bit of an exaggeration, but you get the point. I love the moon too, but still. I wish the author had used other lines every now and then. I know this is a small thing to be picky about, but it was enough to drive me crazy.
Even though when I first read this book, I wasn't exactly overly happy with it. However, I can't stop thinking about it for some reason. Does that mean I like if more than I thought. I'm actually thinking of buying it, so I can read it again. Maybe give it a second chance. We'll see....more
Wow...I liked Stargazer much more than Evernight. It reminded me some what of New Moon though, I hate to go back to that or compare, but it did. In NeWow...I liked Stargazer much more than Evernight. It reminded me some what of New Moon though, I hate to go back to that or compare, but it did. In New Moon, Edward left Bella and here in Stargazer, Lucas was gone. Then, like in New Moon Jacob was there for Bella and now in Stargazer Balthazar was there for Bianca. I know it was different in a lot of ways, but certain things struck me as similar.
I really enjoyed this book overall; however, I'm a little tired of love triangles to be perfectly honest. Not that every story needs a happily ever after or true love forever, but still. Or maybe, I just need a change of book venue for a while.
Regardless of my over exposure to the challenges of love and threes a crowd, the book was definitely an improvement over the first. I think either next year or later this year, the third book comes out. I'm excited to see where this story goes...
Questions I would like to see answered: Will Bianca become a vampire, or both her and Lucas? What about the wraiths, will she become one of them? Will her and Lucas stay together? I hope so... Did Bianca's dad survive? How will the next book play out...hum... ...more
I don't normally start writing a review until I'm finished with a book. It's the ending that can make or break a book sometimes. But, I have all theseI don't normally start writing a review until I'm finished with a book. It's the ending that can make or break a book sometimes. But, I have all these thoughts and I don't want to lose what I'm thinking right now. I checked this book out from the library, so I can't write in it like I would with a book I own.
Anyway, I was really enjoying this book until it did a 180. I'm still really liking it, but I can't get over the sudden change. One minute I know that something is amiss. There is diffidently something going on with Evernight academy, and you know that Bianca will be in the middle of figuring it out. But, for the story to all of a sudden be that Bianca was born a Vampire and she new it. She acted like it was all normal, I guess for her it is normal. But, for the reader to suddenly believe that she was born a vampire, who drank blood at dinner, her parents are vampires, and Evernight was a sanctuary for vampires. At first I thought that Lucas was probably the vampire and Bianca would be turned into one.
I guess what I've been trying to write but not very well, is there wasn't a transition. We weren't set up for the knowledge that transpired. Sure, as readers we were set up that something was not quite right, but not that all along Bianca wasn't who she started out to be.
I'll save the rest of my thoughts for when I'm finished, now that I'm over the initial shock.
Once I got over my first impression, I liked the book much more, especially the second half. It does suck it took about 150 pages for that to happen. It wasn't torture or anything so know harm done. I am glad I stuck with it though. And, I look forward to the second book to come out soon.
I'm such a romantic, I have to know if Bianca and Lucas find their way back to each other. Maybe there will be three books...I would be cool with that. ...more

This series has gotten better with each book. I can't wait for the fourth book to come out. I can just imagine what is in store for us.
Rose reminded me of Harry Potter a little in this book. There was some resemblances to me. For one, the things that Rose was experiencing and how no one would believe her at first. Plus, how she put things together and was right. That was like Harry Potter. Dimitri would start to believe in her, just like Dumbledore would always believe in Harry.
Anyway, this third installment was awesome. Great writing. The characters are likable and compelling. The storyline seems so believable. Rose is an amazing character. I just feel so sad though... ...more
I thought the second book was even better than the first one. I really loved it. I loved Twilight too, but I can see why this series is better. I agreI thought the second book was even better than the first one. I really loved it. I loved Twilight too, but I can see why this series is better. I agree that Rose is much more likable than whinny Bella.
The writing is excellent...witty, smart, funny, and sarcastic always my favorite elements. Rose is strong, intelligent, and amusing. I think the storyline is interesting and entertaining. I can't wait to read book 3 and I'm in extreme anticipation for book four.
It was sad when Mason died and I feel for the struggle that Rose went through in this book. She was dealing with growing up, mother issues (who doesn't have those), boyfriend problems, and best friend problems. What's a girl to do with all those things, kill rogue vampires.

I've waited so long to read them, because I had others books to read. I still do, but I don't know if I can wait to read the next two... plus, wait a few months for book four to be released.
Rose is great. She reminds a little of Buffy the vampire slayer, all those corky come-backs. And, Anita Blake, hit first kind of reactions. The pretty tough girl.
So far, I like how this book is different from the other vampire books I've read. Which is a refreshing change. I enjoyed the writing, always a plus, makes it easy to get through.
The characters I'm not sure if I like them more then the Twilight characters yet, but I did just start the series. I loved this book, so it can only get better, right?
Anyway, at least Lissa and Rose aren't a whinny Bella who only got cool once she turned into a vampire. ...more

Elena is no Buffy, but she does like to foil the best laid plans of the evil doers that come to wreck havoc on her little country town.
Though Stefan and Angel share a lot in common. Spike and Damon; however, are nothing a like in my opinion. I liked Spike, but I love Damon. I might have been the only person who was happy when Buffy and Spike ended up together (or maybe not), anyway I'm hoping if these characters and author are anything a like, then I can hope that Elena and Damon will find their perfect happiness (together). I might be okay with Bonnie and Damon, we'll see. I'm not sure what to do about Stefan.
Hopefully Fell's Church doesn't end up like a big hole in the ground like Sunnydale. But, I'm hopeful for more Vampire Diaries. I hear that the CW is creating a series for next season. I'm looking forward to it.
Over all, I enjoyed this book, especially since Damon was in it more(regardless if he was possessed by ugly demon creatures). The one negative I do have was at times feeling like the story was dragging. It didn't always bother me, but there were times I was like, "lets move it along"... ...more
