Bianca will do anything to be with Lucas, even if it means lying to the powerful vampires of Evernight.
Her deceit leads her to dig deep into he mysteries of the school, and Bianca discovers that even those she trusts the most have their own dark secrets. When a ghostly force begins attacking Evernight-and targeting Bianca-she learns a shocking truth about her past that will forever change her future.
It's been a long time since I read the first book in the Evernight series. I forgot how much I really loved the book and Stargazer was no exception. As with 'Evernight,' 'Stargazer' started off a little slow for me. It's not that I had a hard time getting into it-I definitely got into it! It's just that it seemed a little slow for the first bit. When it picked up though, it really picked up and I couldn't stop reading it. It actually really distracted me from schoolwork and I'm now a chapter behind in Psychology!

'Stargazer' is the continuing story of Bianca Olivier. She's at Evernight, dealing with normal struggles; at least, normal struggles for her. She's missing her boyfriend Lucas and dealing with some pretty nasty wraiths! I don't want to say too much in case anyone hasn't had the opportunity to read the first book yet. It was an amazing story and I already can't wait to get my hands on the next book, 'Hourglass.'

Even though 'Stargazer' was a little slow for me to start, the ending went too fast. It's totally engaging and keeps your attention locked the whole time! It's hard to think about much else...like Psychology for example. Even though I'm finished reading this book now, my mind is just whirling with possibilities and wondering what is going to happen next! If you haven't had a chance to read the Evernight series yet by Claudia Gray, you must! They are absolutely amazing so far.
