Blogger Book Review: Afterlife by Claudia Gray

Posted by cat eyes & skinny jeans on June 12, 2011

Good morning, inkpoppers! A lazy Sunday is never complete without a good book in hand; thus, today we bring you a review of Evernight – the concluding book in the Evernight series by Claudia Gray – from Precious of Fragments of Life.

Stop by Fragments of Life to read more reviews from Precious; at this very moment, savor the romance and suspense of Afterlife!

“In the fourth book, the starcrossed lovers Bianca and Lucas encounter another reason that set them apart from each other. After his transformation, Lucas awoke as a bloodthirsty vampire – craving more blood than the usual newborns. He hated himself for feeling what his enemies feel. Without her body, Bianca could only help him minimally. She faced her own struggles with being as wraith. When she was in Evernight Academy, wraiths have attacked her but now that she was one of them, she struggles to understand their intentions. With the help of Maxie, Bianca goes to Christopher in the world of lost things to search for answers and explanations.

“As always, I loved the pace and the unpredictability of Gray’s last installment. I have grown to like Bianca’s narrative. It was familiar and soothing despite the obstacles and problems that she and Lucas encountered. They seek the protection and guidance for Lucas in Evernight Academy, the territory of Mrs. Bethany – the headmistress who wants nothing more than revenge against the wraiths for the havoc they wrecked.

“I love that the characters have grown. They have learned to conquer their fears and to deal with the challenges of life or afterlife in some cases. The twists and turns made everything better. I was constantly surprised with the turn of events. I got to know the other side of some of the characters that I normally would not pay attention to.

“This was a great end to the ‘Evernight’ series. Gray sustained the drama, suspense and action. She never failed in delivering the best to her readers. ‘Afterlife’ is the shocking, heart pounding, tragic and romantic conclusion to Lucas and Bianca’s struggle with their love and lives.”

Thanks to Precious of Fragments of Life for stopping by to discuss Afterlife with us.
