Evernight by Claudia Gray

Evernight (Evernight, #1)Title: Evernight
Author: Claudia Gray
Publisher: HarperTeen
Release: February 10, 2009
Pages: 327
Series: Evernight #1
Synopsis:
Bianca wants to escape.

She's been uprooted from her small hometown and enrolled at Evernight Academy, an eerie Gothic boarding school where the students are somehow too perfect: smart, sleek, and almost predatory. Bianca knows she doesn't fit in.

Then she meets Lucas. He's not the "Evernight type" either, and he likes it that way. Lucas ignores the rules, stands up to the snobs, and warns Bianca to be careful—even when it comes to caring about him.

"I couldn't stand it if they took it out on you," he tells Bianca, "and eventually they would."

But the connection between Bianca and Lucas can't be denied. Bianca will risk anything to be with Lucas, but dark secrets are fated to tear them apart . . . and to make Bianca question everything she's ever believed.

Review:
I won this book in a recent giveaway, I wanted to read it because I had heard many different things about it; it was very similar to the House of Night and some mixed reviews. I decided that I needed to make my mind up for myself. On the note of similarities to the House of Night, I enjoyed this book far more than any of the House of Night series. This book worked vampires into a school setting in a different way with different mechanics in the vampires that was interesting and realistic as well as good to the storyline. The writing was fairly good, nothing out of the ordinary, but it provided all the necessary information. The characters were one of my favourite aspects of this book, I found Bianca to be strong and favor-able, and of the two male leads, I found that enjoyed Balthazar more than Lucas, he seemed more trustworthy and like-able to me. Overall, I would choose this book over the House of Night because not only does it have vampires in an academy, it also has a strong heroine, I give this book a 4/5.
