After escaping from Evernight Academy, the vampire boarding school where they met, Bianca and Lucas seek refuge with Black Cross, an elite group of vampire hunters. Bianca must hide her supernatural heritage or risk certain death at their hands. But when Black Cross captures her friend—the vampire Balthazar—all her secrets threaten to come out.
Soon, Bianca and Lucas have orchestrated Balthazar's escape and are on the run, pursued not only by Black Cross, but by the powerful leaders of Evernight. Yet no matter how far they run, Bianca can't escape her destiny.
Bianca has always believed their love could survive anything—but can it survive what's to come?
The plan was to read this book as slowly possible, but I failed miserably. I was afraid that the anticipation which had been building the closer the release date approached would make it impossible for it to meet my expectations. The book surpassed them. It was a emotional roller coaster. Even though it didn't completely go the direction I would of hoped for that doesn't make me loved it any less. The end (a real cliffhanger) left me with hope for a well deserved happily ever after which will be that much greater because of all the events preceding it.
