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.

My Rating: ê ê ê ê 1/2

My Review: I can’t remember many book series that ended well, but this one did. As always I still wanted more, but I am pretty satisfied with how it ended. I really don’t want to spoil it, but just know that you won’t be totally disappointed.

I was very happy to see the characters I know and love again. Bianca, Lucas, Balthazar, Vic, Ranulf, Patrice. They are all awesome, especially together. Vic and Ranulf especially. They’re so funny. The new character, Skye, is pretty cool. She’s a human student at Evernight. Yes, Lucas goes to Evernight again. I will tell you that. And Balthazar is going to help him, and Bianca is going to be there invisibly. So, sadly, Bianca can’t go back pretending to be a vamp because her frost problem. She has to hide.

So, this book had pretty much everything you want for the last book in this series. I’m so glad I finally read it. I have a tendency to wait a long time to read the last book in a series because I don’t want it to end. I’m glad that there’s gonna be a Balthazar book coming out next year. I hope it’s good.

Cover Art Review: Similar to the others in the series. Wonderful custom title font. Bianca definitely looks like a ghost in white and silver.
