Review: Hourglass by Claudia Gray
Released: Mar 1 2010
Hardcover: 352 pages
My Rating: 5 / 5
The 3rd book of the Evernight series picks up with Bianca & Lucas now hiding out with the Black Cross. Hoping this is only temporary until they can make it on their own, they are struggling to keep the truth (that she is a vampire) from these Vampire hunters. Thanks to a tip, Mrs. Bethany and a crew of vamps locate the Black Cross and attack for revenge, forcing Bianca & Lucas to run for their lives. When Bianca starts feeling a little strange, Lucas puts his pride aside & asks Balthazar for help.
Ok, bad news is that we are left with a cliffhanger, good news is there is a book #4 AFTERLIFE and she's working on Balthazar's book! Claudia has a great knack for sucking the reader into her world, I've gotten totally immersed in this series. The action began on page one and kept going. The twists & turns, the love story - this book has it all. If you ever questioned who was right for Bianca, Balthazar/Lucas this may put you at ease, as their love for each other is tested time and time again. Let's just say the ending was shocking. Once I finished the book, I wanted more. I feel like a junkie looking for their next fix :S
