  Booklist Review

The bloodthirsty boarders at an exclusive prep school for the undead return in this sequel to Evernight (2008). Sophomore Bianca, still human but almost a vampire, continues her clandestine, passionate romance with Lucas, a member of the vampire-hunting Black Cross. Together with handsome fellow student Balthazar, the kind of nice vampire boy Bianca's parents envision as her boyfriend, Bianca and Lucas investigate violent, ghostly incidents at Evernight and the underlying question of why the Academy admits humans. Once again, heart-pounding suspense, steamy romance, and textbook-gothic details drive this rapid read that will please Twilight fans, too.--Engberg, Gillian Copyright 2009 Booklist

  Kirkus Review

Events tore apart star-crossed lovers Bianca and Lucas at the end of Evernight (2008), when the inevitable conflict between Bianca's vampire family and Lucas's vampire-hunting family nearly destroyed the teens and their loved ones. Amidst surveillance and suspicion, they contrive to meet secretly, using Balthazaran attractive vampireas a cover. Meanwhile, Bianca's attempts to discover why humans have been admitted to vampire bastion Evernight Academy (which teen-looking vampires attend to learn how to manage in the modern world) stir up evil wraiths seemingly intent upon destroyingor maybe savingher. Bianca's tendency to belabor every point, particularly the depth of her love for Lucas, makes for a dull narrative style, and three-dimensional characters are pretty much nonexistent. Despite the predictable romantic entanglements and the constant telling, the plot races along with a search for a crazed renegade vampire, threatening ghosts, uncovered secrets and a flaming climax with a significant body count. Fans of the first volume will be satisfied; insufficient back story means no one else will know (or care) what is going on. (Fantasy. 12 up) Copyright Kirkus Reviews, used with permission.
