Afterlife (Evernight #4)

First Lines: “Sunrise is coming,” Balthazar said.  Those were the first words anyone has spoken aloud in hours.


I’m serious about the spoilers.  Afterlife is the final book in the Evernight series.  And now the spoilers for the previous books will begin.  Consider yourself fairly warned.

I’ve been reading Evernight since it came out and it’s been a roller coaster ride.  My attention with it waned with the 2nd book, but Hourglass totally made me want to keep reading.  I mean, Bianca was a wraith and Lucas was turned into a vampire.  How much edgier could things possible get?  Both were exactly what they didn’t want to be: dead.

In this installment, Bianca and Lucas realize the one place they can go for help is the one place they never wanted to see again.  Evernight Academy can help Lucas become a good vampire, but it’s dangerous for Bianca.  With all these new struggles and challenges, can Bianca and Lucas’s love really survive the afterlife?

I liked it, but it wasn’t as good as it could have been.  Some things felt a little corny instead of being sincere.  And the end of this book, the end of this series, comes upon us quite  suddenly.  One minute, it feels fairly normal.  Then all Hades breaks loose with 30 or so pages to go.  There wasn’t much build-up and that was disappointing.  So, it could have been better, but I am definitely watching out for more from this author.  She’s got some incredible stories coming up.
