But Bianca fell in lvoe with Lucas - a vampire hunter sworn to destroy her kind. They were torn apart when his true identity was revealed, forcing him to flee the school.

Although they may be separated, Bianca and Lucas will not give each other up. She will risk anything for the chance to see him again, even if it means coming face-to-face with the vampire hunters of Black Cross - or deceiving the powerful vampires of Evernight.

One word summary: Exciting!

I am in love with this new(er) vampire series. In the first book, Evernight, author Claudia Gray had me fooled and then surprised by the middle revelation. Seeing as how I am doing a double review on these books - the surprise effect isn't the same if you read my review prior to reading the books. Sorry for the spoiler.

The books are very well written and are fun and action packed, yet just perfect for the young adults, even as young as 13. There is a bit of sensuality, but nothing that young teens haven't seen/heard of before. There are even a few parts that are a little suspenseful, had me on the edge of my seat. Evernight was so good, that I went right out and immediately bought Stargazer because I had to know what was going to happen. And I wasn't disappointed at all. Bianca and Lucas are an awesome couple who have real arguments and ligitamet fears and concerns about what it would be like to be in love with someone who isn't even a part of your species, let alone your enemy! It's a bit of Romeo and Juliet, but hopefully it won't end up tragically.

This series has 2 more books to go - and I already can't wait!
