Afterlife by Claudia Gray
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Book 4 in the 'Evernight' series
Afterlife is a heartwarming conclusion to the Evernight series which I was desperately eager to read as book 3 ended on a heart-in-your-mouth cliffhanger that you just couldn't see them coming back from. Throughout the series this has been a romantic and powerful story. This one I thought was slightly slower going than the other books-which I adored, and didn't quite have the same wow-factor, but is still a sweet continuation of the story of Bianca and Lucas's struggle to be together no matter what, with lots of action scenes and an ending that you won't see coming.
The couple are forced to return to Evernight Academy and again get caught up in the battles between Black Cross and the vampires, and the vampires and the wraiths. Together they band together with all their old friends (and some new ones) to put an end to the hatred, now that Bianca and Lucas cannot take any sides in the war. Bianca is a lot more assertive in this book- she is the one making all the plans and holding everybody together, and she is the one this time, who has to be there to support Lucas. This is an enjoyable read, and I would recommend this series to any fans of YA vampire romance.
