"Bianca and Lucas have always believed they could endure anything to be together. When a twist of fate not only transforms Bianca into a ghostly wraith, but also turns Lucas into a vampire—the very creature he spent his life hunting—they are left reeling. Haunted by his powerful need to kill, Lucas can turn to only one place for help... Evernight Academy. Bianca is determined to remain with him. But with the vampire leader of Evernight waging a war against wraiths, her former home has become the most dangerous place she could be, despite the new powers her transformation has given her. A battle between wraiths and vampires looms, and Bianca and Lucas face a terrifying new reality. They have overcome every obstacle life has thrown at them, but is their love strong enough to survive the challenges after life?"(summary from claudiagray.com)
Afterlife, the final installment in Claudia Gray's Evernight series, picks up right where the previous book, Hourglass, left off. Bianca has now become a wraith and Lucas is a newly turned vampire, and the only place left for him to turn for help is Evernight Academy. The academy, however, is the most dangerous place for Bianca and Lucas to go, not only because of their past history with the school, but the leader, Mrs. Bethany, is trapping wraiths. Bianca and Lucas' love is once again tested as they each learn how to live with their new and powerful transformations.

Afterlife is a captivating story that will not disappoint fans of the Evernight series. I was highly anticipating Afterlife to see where Gray would take the story next, especially after the surprise ending to Hourglass, and once again she has created a plot with surprising twists. When comparing Bianca in Afterlife to the first book, Evernight, there is a great deal of change in her character because she is now openly a stronger, independent, and determined individual. There are so many loveable characters throughout the series such as Bianca, Lucas, and Balthazar, but my favorite has to be Vic because of the humor he brings to the story. If you have not read the Evernight series yet, I highly recommend that you do.
