Bianca wants to escape.

She's been uprooted from her small hometown and enrolled at Evernight Academy, an eerie Gothic boarding school where the students are somehow too perfect: smart, sleek, and almost predatory. Bianca knows she doesn't fit in.

Then she meets Lucas. He's not the "Evernight type" either, and he likes it that way. Lucas ignores the rules, stands up to the snobs, and warns Bianca to be careful—even when it comes to caring about him.

"I couldn't stand it if they took it out on you," he tells Bianca, "and eventually they would."

But the connection between Bianca and Lucas 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.

I am not going to compare Evernight to that glittery 'ole vampire series -- or any other for that matter -- but I am going to say Claudia Gray is a natural born storyteller.

The emotion of being in high school came across strongly and I sympathized with Bianca as she tried to fit in with the other private school brats.

The Bookbag

I don't want to say any more – I was a little uneasy about even mentioning the twist actually existed – but couldn't think of a way to recommend a book which really, really needs to be recommended without at least revealing there was one.

This not only a premiere book for author Claudia Gray but also the first in a planned vampire series that will not have readers wishing that they were reading another installment of Edward and Bella.
