139) Stargazer by Claudia Gray

The Blurb -

The vampire in me was closer to the surface . . .

Bianca, born to two vampires, has always been told her destiny is to become one. But she has fallen in love with Lucas, a vampire hunter who infiltrated Evernight Academy, the exclusive vampire boarding school she attends. Bianca will do anything to be with Lucas, even if it means lying to the powerful vampires of Evernight.

Her deceit leads her to dig deep into the mysteries of the school, and Bianca discovers that even those she trusts the most have their own dark secrets. When a ghostly force begins attacking Evernight—and targeting Bianca—she learns a shocking truth about her past that will forever change her future.

My Thoughts -

I can't remember when I read the first book, Evernight, but the other day it suddenly popped into my head and I wondered why I hadn't carried on with the series. Then I checked my bookshelf and found Stargazer amongst all the to be read books. I curled up with it and started reading.

Within pages I realised what I liked about the first book. Bianca is a nice calm main character and doesn't think she is something she isn't. Realistic and constant, she guides the reader through the story without getting too dramatic. I also like the concept in this book. Evernight, a place for vampires to go to learn how to live in the modern world. Funny and interesting, Evernight so much different to the House of the Night and Vampire Academy books.

So I enjoyed reading Stargazer and I am already looking for a copy of Hourglass, the third book in the series. I want to see what happens with the wraiths that made themselves present in this book and also what will become of Bianca and Lucas. Lots of twists and a small cliffhanger made sure that this series is going to be a must read for me. Another YA series to keep me occupied!
