About the Author
Claudia Gray is the pseudonym of New Orleans-based writer Amy Vincent, the author of the New York Times bestselling Evernight series. She has worked as a lawyer, a journalist, a disc jockey, and an extremely poor waitress. Her grandparents' copy of Mysteries of the Unexplained is probably the genesis of her fascination with most things mysterious and/or inexplicable.

The highlight of Afterlife was the supporting cast. Vic and Ranulf stole the show. Ranulf's backwards old english translations never failed to make me laugh. Patrice, Dana, and Raquel also join the mix and proved what real friendship truly is. There are some tough family issues as well. The overall message is what are the limits of love. Gray explores quite a few variations within different relationships.
Some low points. Unfortunately I can't say the highlight was the love story. The romance is why I read and followed the series. But they were more like an old married couple than star crossed teenage lovers. Bianca's constant repetitive blaming of Lucas' undead state on Balthazar. I can understand why she's upset, I just wish every time Bianca complained about it that it would be phrased differently. It was worded exactly the same each time. And became redundant. Unfortunately she harped on it a lot. I also didn't care for the end. It was neat and tidy, all my favorite people lived, but I found to be a bit of a let down. It was safe. Sweet. Tame.Read more ›
Okay, so I'm assuming that if you're reading this review, you either have already read the previous books and are acquainted with the plot or that you have no intention of ever reading them, so don't care about spoilers. At the opening of the novel, Bianca and Lucas are both dead; she's a wraith and he's a vampire. But (big surprise) being dead cannot stop their love (seriously, I'm so moved), as they keep reminding one another every three pages.
Of course, maybe they don't love each other as much in this situation. There is that human girl that Lucas befriended. Could just be me, but, had events transpired differently, I could imagine them getting along really well, if you catch my drift. Besides, Bianca said this: "It wasn't that I loved him any less for being dead--how could I?--but I knew that his life was something I loved about Lucas, and it was gone" (89). Really? I'm buying it. You don't love him less; you just loved him more before. That makes perfect sense. This is true love that lasts forever folks.
Best moment of the book, in my humble opinion, resulted from some poor editing.Read more ›
Afterlife begins anticipating Lucas' rise as a vampire, his worst nightmare come true. Now that Bianca is a wraith and some of her best friends and loved ones are human and vampires alike, worst enemies will be forced to come together in the last book of the Evernight series. Finding his life as a vampire is harder than he ever thought, Lucas realizes that he will have to find sanctuary somewhere he never thought he would go again, Evernight Academy. The problem is Evernight is a very dangerous place for Bianca to be, risking being trapped by Mrs. Bethany on her mission to capture wraiths. Soon, they realize they need to find out what it is Mrs. Bethany wants with these wraiths she's capturing, and the truth is shocking. While remaining on the mortal plane with the people she loves most, Bianca must also explore the new world of the wraiths. Another wraith, Christopher, may hold the answers to all her questions, but she is reluctant to meet him in fear that when she does she will have to give up the mortal world and the people she loves, forever. When she puts her fears aside and finally arranges a meeting with Christopher, the things he reveals not only help her to realize why she is so important to the wraiths but also what it is, or rather who it is that Christopher and Bianca have in common.
It would be an understatement to say the truth comes out in Afterlife. All the questions that have been lingering through the last three books will be answered. I gave this book 4 stars rather than five because it was hard for me to really enjoy the relationship between Bianca and Lucas with her being a ghost.Read more ›
