Afterlife by Claudia Gray

Destiny awaits Bianca and Lucas . . .

Bianca and Lucas have always believed they could endure anything to be together. When a twist of fate not only transforms Bianca into a wraith but also turns Lucas into a vampire—the very creature he spent his life hunting—they are left reeling.

Haunted by his powerful need to kill, Lucas can turn to only one place for help . . . Evernight Academy. Bianca is determined to remain with him. But with the vampire leader of Evernight waging a war against wraiths, her former home has become the most dangerous place she could be, despite the new powers her ghostly transformation has given her.

A battle between wraiths and vampires looms, and Bianca and Lucas face a terrifying new reality. They've overcome every obstacle life has thrown at them, but is their love strong enough to survive the challenges after life? (from GoodReads)

This will probably be a pretty short review because I don't have much to say about Afterlife. I enjoyed reading it and I thought it was a good conclusion to the Evernight series.

Hourglass leaves off on a cliffhanger, so I was excited to see what happens next in Afterlife. I was wary at first because I wasn't sure how the author would navigate the changes that occurred to the protagonists, Bianca and Lucas (trying not to give much away here, folks). But luckily I was pleasantly surprised with the execution and the conclusion of this series.

I was also excited to see that Claudia Gray has another book set on the Titanic called Fateful (which sounds awesome) and that she's planning on writing a book from Balthazar's point-of-view. He was one of my favorite characters so I'm looking forward to that.

Rating: 8 out of 10.
