WHAT IS IT?
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 vampirethe very creature he spent his life huntingthey 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?
“Afterlife” picks up as Lucas is about to rise from his first death to start his second life as a vampire. Lucas’ internal struggle with becoming the very thing he was taught to hate, isn’t his only battle. Now he has to fight the hunger. And live with the stigma of Black Cross among his previous prey. Bianca is still learning what it means to be a wraith, along with her own issues about being dead. Lucas, Bianca, and our favorite side kicks all journey back to Evernight. Along the way Lucas will face his mom, we find out exactly what Mrs. Bethany is up to with all those ghosts and if love really can transcend all obstacles.
Throughout the series I’ve been kind of neutral in regards to how I feel. On the one hand I enjoy the world of Evernight and the characters more than almost any other paranormal young adult series out there. Other than occasional mishaps or idiot moments, Bianca and Lucas were entertaining to read about.
Bianca has abilities most wraiths do not she can manifest corporeal form and she can move from place to place with a thought and the other wraiths want her help. Mrs. Bethany, the Evernight headmistress, is hunting wraiths. So many are captured and going mad inside Evernights walls as a result of her seek-and-destroy mission.
The final push in trying to set up something resembling an action piece becomes a little more than a milquetoast take on Stephanie Meyer. Still, it’s perfect material for the teen girls that listen to way too much Rebecca Black. Check it out and enjoy it for what it is.
