  • Gr. 9-12 The third heart-pounding page-turner in the best-selling Evernight series follows Bianca, the teenage daughter of vampire parents who has both bloodthirsty and human qualities, and her mortal beloved, Lucas, to Manhattan, a “city with a serious vampire problem.” Posing as a member of the vampire-hunting group Black Cross, to which Lucas belongs, Bianca continues to take part in the war between humans and vampires, which rages everywhere from elegant apartments to Central Park. Once again, Gray balances the tense, relentless action with passionate romance all the way to the shocking conclusion, which will leave readers demanding the next installment. A natural for Twilight series fans. -- Engberg, Gillian (Reviewed 02-01-2010) (Booklist, vol 106, number 11, p42)
  • Gr 9 Up— Bianca, a vampire, and Lucas, a vampire hunter, are on the run with Lucas's mother's cell of the Black Cross vampire hunters. Bianca emails her parents, leading Mrs. Bethany and the other vampires straight to her, but she refuses to go back to Evernight Academy. When a fellow student and Black Cross refugee discovers Bianca drinking from a blood bag, Lucas and Bianca have to run away again. Now they are hunted by vampires and humans as well as the ghosts that plague Bianca's dreams. When she becomes ill, her friends try to help her to no avail, and she turns into a wraith. Lucas rushes headlong into battle with Charity, a rogue vampire, and is turned into a vampire before Bianca can reach him. There is a lot of action in this volume and more unresolved problems at the end, leaving readers anticipating the next book. This is a great series for teens wanting more content than Ellen Schreiber's "Vampire Kisses" (HarperCollins) but less length than Stephenie Meyer's "Twilight" (Little, Brown). It is comparable to Richelle Mead's "Vampire Academy" series (Penguin).—Corinda J. Humphrey, Los Angeles Public Library --Corinda J. Humphrey (Reviewed March 1, 2010) (School Library Journal, vol 56, issue 3, p158)
