Reviews for Stargazer
STARGAZER- The most romantic and melancholic part of Lucas' and Bianca's story!
The story of Bianca and Lucas enters another paranormal round, in STARGAZER vampires meet ghosts. These ghost-like beings are called wraiths and might be new to the reader, but have a long history that has in some way always related to vampire's. We learn more about their history and also the origin of the supernatural beings that inhabit the Evernight universe.
Stars and astronomy are a present motive in this series. They support the melancholic and romantic aspect of our lover's relationship. This part of Lucas' and Bianca's story is all about longing!
The title STARGAZER suggests a romantic and dreamy read which this novel definitely offers. But like many other second novels in a series, this one is a bit slow and uneventful, too.
Bianca expands the relationships to fellow classmates and also to characters that could threaten her life any instant, but that is what makes it more interesting. And also new villains are always needed, so Gray introduces a few more of them.
Gray's writing and her varied vocabulary fit the novel's spirit and fill her cast and dialogues with substance.
In comparison to other vampire novels, STARGAZER throws light on the transformation aspect of vampires. It's interesting that the concept of vampires is not rigid, but malleable.
I give it 3,5/5 stars.
A romantic and melancholic novel that is supported by a skilled writing. Spend your evenings stargazing and your nights reading STARGAZER, the sequel to EVERNIGHT! by MissPageTurner

As her second year at Evernight Academy begins, Bianca wants nothing more than to see her boyfriend, Lucas, again. But the distance between them - she the daughter of two vampires, he a trained vampire hunter - makes her wonder if they'll ever be together.
So when Lucas manages to get a message to her, arranging to meet in secret, she's willing to do anything to make that happen. Even if it means sneaking around the school trying to discover the secret Lucas's family so desperately wants to discover. Even if it means pretending to date Balthazar, Lucas's rival, as an excuse to leave school grounds.
As if all that didn't complicate her life enough, Bianca realizes there's something scarier than vampires lurking within Evernight's walls. Something that has a particular interest in her. Soon, Bianca finds herself questioning everything she thought she knew: about vampires, about her love for Lucas, and about who and what she really is.
Fans of EVERNIGHT will be delighted with this sequel, which offers the same passionate romance and Gothic mystery as the first book, combined with intriguing new characters and conflicts. Bianca continues to struggle to take control of her destiny, balancing strength and vulnerability. Supporting characters like Balthazar and Raquel, Bianca's human friend, reveal more of their complex histories.
Readers may find that, for everything that happens, rather little is resolved, but that will only make them all the more eager for the third volume of this intense and suspenseful series. by TeensReadToo
