(Evernight Book #3)
by Claudia Gray

Genre: Paranormal Romance / Young Adult

Bianca will risk everything to be with Lucas. After escaping from Evernight Academy, the vampire boarding school where they met, Bianca and Lucas take refuge with Black Cross, a fanatical group of vampire hunters. Bianca must hide her supernatural heritage or risk certain death at their hands. But when Black Cross captures her friend—the vampire Balthazar—hiding is no longer an option. Soon, Bianca and Lucas are on the run again, pursued not only by Black Cross, but by the powerful leaders of Evernight. Yet no matter how far they travel, Bianca can't escape her destiny. Bianca has always believed their love could survive anything . . . but can it survive what's to come?

The Evernight series follows Bianca, the teenage daughter of vampire parents who has both bloodthirsty and human qualities, and her mortal beloved, Lucas, to Manhattan, a “city with a serious vampire problem.” Posing as a member of the vampire-hunting group Black Cross, to which Lucas belongs, Bianca continues to take part in the war between humans and vampires, which rages everywhere from elegant apartments to Central Park.

Seventeen-year-old Bianca, half-vampire, half-human, & twenty-year-old Lucas, a Black Cross vampire killer ,continue to take refuge with the enemy. Effected by dizzying spells and a weaker body due to the lack of interactions with her own kind, Bianca must beat the odds of remaining undetected even though she is afraid of who and more importantly what she is becoming. Hourglass is highly tension packed at times and at others quite emotional with the whole bond of family/friends. There's some big shockers that really break your heart, but with the story plot . . . it was pretty much inevitable. The ending was excruciating for me since I would have chosen differently, but it definitely spices things up.

Likes: Modern Romeo & Juliet tale with a twist!

Dislikes: A plot twist full of death and heartache!
