Synopsis(From Booksamillion website)
Bianca will risk everything to be with Lucas.
After escaping from Evernight Academy, the vampire boarding school where they met, Bianca and Lucas take refuge with Black Cross, a fanatical group of vampire hunters. Bianca must hide her supernatural heritage or risk certain death at their hands. But when Black Cross captures her friend--the vampire Balthazar--hiding is no longer an option.
Soon, Bianca and Lucas are on the run again, pursued not only by Black Cross, but by the powerful leaders of Evernight. Yet no matter how far they travel, Bianca can't escape her destiny.
Bianca has always believed their love could survive anything . . . but can it survive what's to come?

My Thoughts

I'm speechless.  I just finished reading this five minutes ago and I'm shocked.  If you haven't picked up Evernight and Stargazer, what have you been doing????

BEWARE: If you haven't read the previous two books, this may contain spoilers so read at your own risk.

This book stirred up many emotions for me.  Bianca and Lucas take refuge with the Black Cross but the fact that she is hiding what she is becomes harder and harder for them both.  Things are more desperate for Bianca as she tries to fight the evergrowing need inside her while Lucas struggles to keep their secret hidden, all the while taking care of Bianca.

Throw into the mix a herd of other obstacles and you have yourself a story filled with suspense, romance, a sprinkle of betrayal, action and loss. I'll admit I shed a few tears.

Bianca and Lucas have done alot of growing up and with the circumstances dramatically changing you can't help but feel for them.  With Vic, Balthazar and the other characters, it makes for quite a memorable read.  I'll warn you now that the story for me was left on a cliff hanger, and I am hanging for the fourth and final book Afterlife. 

If your after a book with twists and a rollercoaster of emotions be sure to pick this up and devour it.  Because thats certainly what I did.
