Editorial Reviews


"Once I picked up 'Evernight' I couldn't put it down! I can't wait for Claudia Gray's next book!" L. J. Smith, best-selling author of 'The Vampire Diaries' --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

This was a great ending to the series and I'm sad it's over.
I was really surprised how much I enjoyed this final book of the series.
Victoria Sloboda
It just seemed like the author really didn't want to deal with her.

Claudia Gray is tying up all the loose ends in the conclusion to her Evernight series. The book picks up as Lucas is about to rise from his first death to start his second life as a vampire. Lucas' internal struggle with becoming the very thing he was taught to hate, isn't his only battle. Now he has to fight the hunger. And live with the stigma of Black Cross among his previous prey. Bianca is still learning what it means to be a wraith, along with her own issues about being dead. Lucas, Bianca, and our favorite side kicks all journey back to Evernight. Along the way Lucas will face his mom, we find out exactly what Mrs. Bethany is up to with all those ghosts and if love really can transcend all obstacles.

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.

Oh my goodness, the sappiness and cheesiness that comprise these books! They have always been this way, but I think they have been getting worse as they have gone along. I laughed out loud several times at the 'romantic' scenes. Are you wondering, why does she keep reading the Evernight series if she thinks it's so bad? Well, I really can't say. Once I read the first two books in a series, I generally feel compelled to finish (although I gave up on the House of Night books by the Casts). Besides that, my only other reason is that I make bad choices sometimes.

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.

This was a perfect ending to a unique YA vampire series. I have really enjoyed this series, and think Claudia Gray did a great job of setting the Evernight series apart from others of its kind. The romance, plot twists and character development lend themselves to page-turning books that are very difficult to put down. Gray surprised me at least once in each of the first three books and did not disappoint with Afterlife. I think I let out little shocked gasps of surprise at least twice. I love being surprised like that!

I had a little bit of trouble with the addition of the wraiths to the story. You may or may not know that I am really scared of ghosts and always steer clear of books with ghosts in them. Mary Downing Hahn ruined me on ghosts when I read Wait Till Helen Comes as a child. That book affected me for years. I remember my mom praying with me that I would forget about Helen and that God would comfort me to help me believe that Helen was not coming for me. Even now, I remember how scared I was: just typing the title and those sentences gave me chills! Anyway, the point of that story was that ghosts freak me out something terrible but I was able to read the Evernight series without too much trouble.

Afterlife had more going on than its predecessors. There were several layers to the story and the plot twisted in ways I was not expecting. Just when I thought I had some of the characters figured out, they would go and surprise me again. One of my favorite characters in the series is Ranulf. I think he is so funny, and I love the camaraderie he and Vic have. Some of the things Ranulf says are hilarious---and I can just picture him with his bowl cut and serious face.
