Bianca wants to escape.
At the eerily Gothic Evernight Academy, the other students are sleek, smart, and almost predatory. Bianca knows she doesn't fit in.
When she meets handsome, brooding Lucas, he warns her to be careful—even when it comes to caring about him. But the connection between them can't be denied. Bianca will risk anything to be with Lucas, but dark secrets are fated to tear them apart . . . and to make Bianca question everything she's ever believed.
First Paragraph: The burning arrow thudded into the wall.
Fire. The old, dry wood of the meetinghouse ignited in an instant. Dark, oily smoke filled the air, scratching my lungs and making me choke. Around me, my new friends cried out in shock before grabbing weapons, preparing to fight for their lives.

Evernight is amazing and has definitely made it to one of my favorite books at the moment. I couldn't put it down at all. Every time I did it kept calling to me to pick it back up. It seriously became a drug.

Evernight is so filled with emotion and reality, even though it has fantasy throughout the whole book. The characters are so real. Bianca and Lucas's love for each other is so moving and heartbreaking. I can't tell you how many times I cried throughout this book.

Something in Evernight, which I'm not going to tell what because it's a major spoiler, completely made me drop my book. Seriously. It caught me off guard and I just dropped the book. It took me a few seconds to pick it back up and continue on.

Evernight is filled with so many things; unconditional love, suspense, great characters, original and intriguing storyline. It's just... wow. 

I hate myself for taking so long to read this. I had it on my shelf for a while!

I recommend this to anyone who is a big fan of vampire lore and would love to read a new and refreshing vampire story.

Cover:  The cover is very pretty. Not one of my absolute favorites, but it is pretty unique and pretty. Cover art by Karen Pearson; MergeLeft Reps, inc. Hand lettering by Sarah Jane Coleman, cover design by Christopher Stengel.
