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.

BALTHAZAR is the companion novel to the EVERNIGHT series. Basically this book picks up right where the last EVERNIGHT book left off...expect now instead of following Lucius and Bianca we're following around Balthazar and his (soon to be) new love interest Skye. That being said, you don't really have to have read any previous Claudia Gray novels if you want to read this one. It's basically a brand new story and a brand new start. Many of the same characters from the EVERNIGHT series are part of this novel, but no prior knowledge is really needed to enjoy this book. However...

This novel is no EVERNIGHT! It was alright, enjoyable, and semi-entertaining--I read through it rather quickly--but never once did it sweep me off my feet nor capture the same mystery/intensity I felt while reading EVERNIGHT. In EVERNIGHT I loved the romance between Lucius and Bianca; In BALTHAZAR I only liked the romance between Balthazar and Skye. Which was disappointing since I've always been super fond of Balthazar and found him particularly swoon-worthy. But I guess it just turns out that I prefer the stereotypical 'bad boy' to win the girl. I prefer my romantic to have friction and that forbidden factor. Claudia Gray tried to give Balthy and Skye those things, but it didn't really capture to what I wanted. So--like I said before--BALTHAZAR wasn't a bad novel...it just wasn't knock-your-socks-off-spectacular either.

All in all--the most I can really say for this book is that it was OK.

Bottom line: Give it a try if you're an EVERNIGHT fan. :)

Skye Tierney is in her own personal purgatory. After Evernight Academy burns down she's forced to return home and finish her junior and senior year in her hometown. A place that reminds her of a brother long gone, parents who've checked out, and an ex-boyfriend who wasn't worth all she gave.

Now her life's in danger and her guardian angel is the swoon worthy Balthazar. A very old vampire wants to enslave Skye and Balthazar knows first hand how ruthless this particular bloodsucker can be, as his past not only comes back to haunt him but hunt Skye as well.

Balthazar marks a return to all the things I loved about the Evernight Series before it all went wrong for me. The romance wasn't as wonderful as Bianca and Lucas, it was a more subtle falling for each other. But it was nice to see a character like Balthazar who deserved better than he got in the previous series to win the girl and have someone appreciate him in that way. I loved the backstories. Getting to see how Balthazar and Charity's story began along with flashbacks to different periods in Balthazar's life was very entertaining. The only thing that seemed a stretch was what and how vamps reacted to Skye's blood. I would have liked some reason as to why her blood is special and how did the other vampires find out about her. Is it because she's a medium, or a more powerful one, do other former human students from Evernight have a similar effect. It just seemed so random that they picked her to come after. Gray did a great job filling us in on the who, you really get to know Balthazar and Skye, I just wish she would have filled us in more on the backstory of the plot's catalyst.

The book kicks things off fast but leaves an explanation as to why quite vague. Still, Balthazar was an entertaining read. It had strong characterizations, and interesting new villains. That definitely redeems some of the disappointment from Afterlife.

I enjoyed this book but to be honest, I thought I would have enjoyed a book about Balthazar more (no pun intended lol). He was my favourite character from the Evernight series and I couldn't wait to read this. I thought this was just going to be one book to finish off Balthazar's story and leave us with his happily ever after but from the ending, its seems like it could be the first of a series (I'll have to check this out though I could be wrong).

I feel that as a series, it could become long winded and drawn out in a game of cat and mouse just with a change of head cat for next time. But of course, Ms. Gray could have some fantastic idea's up her sleeve that she can add to this. If its not going to be a series, then there was a lot of loose ends, so my guess would be that it is.

Balthazar is a fantastic character. Swoonworthy, brave, strong and considerate. He arrives at Skye's house, having been asked by Lucas to check on her because she was having a problem with some wraiths. He is just in time to save her from being killed by a vampire. But in the attack, the vampire manages to get a taste of Skye's blood, which turns out to have a special effect on vampires. When he returns to his tribe and tells them about it, the entire tribe go after Skye, led by Redgrave.

Skye is an awesome heroine. I didn't pay too much attention to her in the Evernight series even though she was the one who saved Bianca in the end. She showed us then how brave she was by letting Bianca possess her, and that bravery continues to show in Balthazar. She doesn't hide away when she has all the vampires on her tail, she continues on with life as best she can. She even gets Balthazar to teach her how to fight.
