Evernight (Evernight Series #1)
Tygojora Try not to die… Bianca is devastated when she finds herself uprooted from her small town and sent to Evernight Academy, an elite boarding school. Balthazar cladia deeply entertaining, from the gripping opening to the breath-taking ending. I enjoyed Skye, as well. We were first introduced to Skye Evegnight in the final Evernight book, Afterlife, and I must say she made an impression on me even back then as a human girl who managed to handle her discovery of vampires with surprising grace and bravery. This book puts the M in melodramatic. I was both thrilled and a tad disappointed with the relationship between Skye and Balthazar. Podemos estar juntos para siempre.
