Book Review: Stargazer by Claudia Gray

this is the sequel to Evernight by Claudia Gray

Evernight Academy: an exlusive boarding school made for educating the most beautiful, dangerous students of all in the current technology and customs--a boarding school that only recently began accepting humans to attend. A school that may very well be haunted at this very moment.

Bianca: a teenage girl, though not quite average, being hunted by something scary and chilling--something that most of us only know in our nightmares.

Lucas: a vampire hunter sworn to destroy Bianca, the girl who fell in love with him not even a year ago, and all of her loved ones. Lucas and Bianca are struggling to stay together, and relish in any moments they can be alone. Things do not get much better when Bathlazar and Bianca start "dating"

All together: Not. Very. Good.

Review:

Gray wrote this novel just as beautifully as that before it, and it truly could not have been more chilling or suspenseful.

And I really cannot help but say that it was much better than Evernight, and I honestly did not think that was possible. While there was still the passionate relationship between Bianca and Lucas, we got to see quite a bit more of Balthazar. Which I liked very much. I constantly found myself wondering when he would make a move, when Bianca would start to fall for him, where his story would pop up--when we would get more of a background on him. I get all of the feelings Bianca has for Lucas, who, need I remind you, is a BLACK CROSS HUNTER, but part of me really wanted her to give poor Balthazar a chance--i really think that they could make it worth. I mean, with her slowly turning into a vampire it made so much more sense for her to be with someone like Balthazar than with a vampire hunter.

But when does the main character ever make good choices when it comes to there romance life? I mean, give me 5 books where the girl doesnt make a terrible mistake when it comes to guys? Yeah, exactly. Really, though, other then my conflicting emotions with Lucas/Bathlazar, i truly loved this novel. I think that sequel-wise, Claudia did amazing, and i really hope all of you Evernight fans out there agree!

Grade: A
