Hourglass (Evernight #3) By Claudia Gray Review #51

Author: Claudia Gray
Publisher: HarperTeen
Pages: 352
Thanks To: Marisa @ HarperCollins Children Books

After escaping from Evernight, the vampire boarding school, Bianca and Lucas take refuge with Black Cross, a fanatical group of vampire hunters. Bianca must hide her supernatural heritage or risk certain death at their hands. Yet, no matter what, Bianca can't escape her destiny. She has always believed her relationship with Lucas could survive anything—but can it survive what's to come?

One of the most addicting and enthralling series out there! Claudia Gray's Evernight Series gets better with each book. I didn't think it could, but Gray proved me wrong once again. With her beautiful writing, excellent plot twists and amazing well developed characters, you won't be able to resist placing this somewhere special in your heart.

If you asked me what I thought would happen after Evernight, well the answer I would have given then is probably 100% wrong. For I so did not see, what happened in Hourglass coming. But that's one of the great things about this author, she keeps you guessing and doesn't give you a boring storyline. All the plot twists, whether it's in this book or the others, are superbly well written and you so don't see them coming. Your mouth will drop by the end of Hourglass, leaving you utterly speechless. I promise you that, for I was very surprised.

I absolutely love, love, love, love, love, love, love this book!!

I enjoyed this book, it was fantastic. It outdid it's two predessors, and in the end has left me counting down the days until the next book comes out. I love all the characters, even the evil ones. And if Lucas were a real person, I'd want to date him. But I'd also would like to date Balthazar, if he were alive to. The only problem then, would be Bianca (because she'd be alive to).

Theres not much more to say about this series. It's brilliantly amazing, and if you haven't read them yet. Then I seriously think you should drop everything and start. For you won't be disappointed.

I look forward to seeing more of Claudia Gray's works, for she is truly a admirable author. The only problem I saw in Hourglass, was Raquel's character wasn't the same. And how she changed so quickly and how she acted, was really unbelievable.

I don't want to give any spoilers away, but all I have left to say is: GO. READ. THIS.BOOK.NOW.YOU.WON'T.BE.DISAPPOINTED!! :)

I hold off buying Evernight after reading some bad reviews on it. I guess that since the books get better and better, I really should give this a try. Thank you for this excellent review.
