Destiny awaits Bianca and Lucas. . . .
Bianca and Lucas believe they could endure anything to be together. When fate transforms Bianca into a ghostly wraith and turns Lucas into a vampire—the very creature he spent his life hunting—they are left reeling.
There is only one place Lucas can turn for help . . . Evernight Academy. But the vampire hunters of Black Cross are still...more
Moving to the 'read' shelf, because I can't stand this on my 'to-read' shelf any longer. I will never read this. Reading other reviews confirms my initial thought that I have better things to do with my time, including but not limited to poking my eyes out, watching paint dry/grass grow, or cleaning my toilet with a toothbrush.
But, I can't delete a review with 33 likes, can I?
Giving up...I'll just pick it up when it's published.
I hate when people rate a book before they re ...more
I guess I wanted more for Lucas and Bianca. I knew these two characters w ...more
Did this series just ended or am I going crazy?! o_O
I am so not sure how I feel about this just yet...
I guess like:
Ok... I am going crazy... This was like the last book of this series! I am so disappointed! Like how can Claudia Gray do this?! I was expecting alot more than just a book (which is the last book in this series) to be full of crap. Like, its Evernight... EVERNIGHT! The book I loved more than anything in my life. A book which I was freaking proud to ...more
Ugh. It's been a week since I finished this and I STILL am upset by the end, a little...not that I wasn't happy....I was. But, then again, it also made me upset. But that's not to say it isn't my pregnancy hormones at work. Who knows? I LOVE Lucas-ADORE HIM-so I'll never forget this series.
I might come back and add to this review, but ATM I'm super sucked into the Morganville Vamps, so I'll likely stick closer and truer to those reviews...we'll see!
For more of my reviews, please visi ...more
The events of the book seem pretty scattered and when action sequences finally happened, they seemed rather rushed and were described in a distant, brief way you might tell a story to someone who wasn't there. The biggest issues, however, were that Bianca just didn't seem as likable or interesting as a wraith, and the relationship between her an ...more
💬: Destiny awaits Bianca and Lucas...Bianca and Lucas believe they could endure anything to be together. When fate transforms Bianca into a ghostly wraith and turns Lucas into a vampire—the very creature he spent his life hunting—they are left reeling. There is only one place Lucas can turn for help . . . Evernight Academy. But the vampire hunters of Black Cross are still pursuing them, and a final battle between wraiths and vampires looms at Evernight. Bia ...more
Afterlife picks up exactly were Hourglass left off: we are waiting for Lucas to arise as a Vampire. And right off the bat, I had a sinking feeling I wasn't going to like this book very much. Why? After Lucas rises, he immediately takes o ...more
I'm so glad that I didn't give up on this series back then. I would have missed out on so much more. Gray pulls her readers through such an amazing forbidden love story and a fun filled world and despite those WTF moments, I loved every single minute of this much beloved series.
I do ...more
The book started off painfully slow and the pacing do not improve much as it progressed. It was rather agonizing to read and, at the end, one is left wondering - I just struggle through all of that for what? A big fat raspberry.
My other major complaint with Afterlife is writing structure. Ms. Gray's writing structure and style seem ...more
I AM SOOOOO, UGG! I CAN'T EXPLAIN IT!!!!!!
it is soooo amazing! I was always left dangling for more info! It took me 2 and a half days to finish! I finished it today. I am soooo blown away! SADLY, I CAN;T BELIEVE I HAVE TO WAIT THE WHOLE YEAR TO GET AFTERLIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Can anyone give me some spoilers that will happen in Afterlife? Anyone?!?!
Like the previous one was my favorite of the series, this was the one I liked the least.
It takes 4 stars because the saga after all I liked it, and although at first I did not get the relationship between Bianca and Lucas, in these last two books it did. It is what I highlight in this book, besides the friendships that are forged in this one. Relations are the best. I did not click with this book at any time, all the time I was waiting for something that would make me not be able to r ...more
Afterlife picks up directly where Hourglass left ...more
OMG (good) b(^_^)d
OMG (bad) w(O_o)w
I never expected the turn of events here in Afterlife, sure there are a lot of surprises and heartbreaking scenes. I learned a lot about wraiths, Bianca's powers, Lucas's struggle coping up with the vampire world, the story of Mrs.Bethany and her hidden agenda, of Christopher and a lot more but one thing is for sure I DIDN'T LIKE THE ENDING! (except they eliminated the threat). After reading the book, I was like WTH happened? I nearly cried over the ending. For ...more
Well, I liked it more than I had expected. The ghost thing wasn't what I imagined. It was somewhat fun. I still fill like what was so wonderful about the first 2 is missing. Bianca and Lucas just aren't as much fun to read about. I'm not sucked into the story as much. For me, b ...more
Based on the assortment of reviews I read in preparation, I was honestly expecting this one to blow. I've never had a particularly forgiving attitude toward these Evernight books, so I wasn't excited to get started reading. But it really wasn't that bad. I thought it was much better than the third one (which I hated).
First, because it's fun to whine, here are the things I didn't like:
1. Bianca and Lucas are both rather b ...more
4 action packed with twist of romance stars
I have to say this was a really good ending to a series for Claudia Gray, because this was her first series that she finished and I'm happy the way it turned out, the only thing that bothered me was how at the end of the book (view spoiler)[ that Lucas became human again and Bianca is still a ghost so I don't know how that relationship will turn out because one o ...more
Before we discuss Afterlife, the final Evernight novel, it’s important to remember where Hourglass (Evernight #3) left us. Claudia Gray did what we would have never imagined and let our lead characters die. Of course, in the paranormal world dead isn’t dead. Former half-vampire Bianca is now a wraith (aka ghost) and her nee vampire hunter boyfriend Lucas has been turned into a vampire, his greatest fear.
I spent the months since finishing Hou ...more
I was lucky to receive an ARC copy of Afterlife. I've read it in one night and thought it was okay. Not as good as the third one which I totally loved and is by f ...more
It was so heartbreaking for me when I finished reading Hourglass a few months ago. And those were the same feelings I had when I began reading Afterlife. But Claudia Gray is a very smart author, she knew how to caught you so much into the story, and when you think you're going into a dead-end (no pun intended xD) there ...more
This is book 4 in the ‘Evernight’ series, and picks up where book 3 ‘Hourglass’ left off.
**Warning – some unavoidable spoilers for books 1, 2, & 3 – ‘Evernight’, ‘Stargazer’, and ‘Hourglass’.**
After the events of book 3, Bianca and Lucas have both got some changes to adjust to. Bianca needs to learn how to live as a wraith, and Lucas needs to learn how to live as a vampire, and there’s only one place for him to do that – Evernight Academy.
With Evern ...more
The third book left us at a total cliffhanger; Bianca had turned Wraith and Lucas is left for dead. Bianca has to decide to let Lucas live or to turn him. The decision happens in the first couple pages of the book (so I am not spoiling it here). Unfor ...more
