STARGAZER, like it's prequel, EVERNIGHT, starts off a bit slow at the beginning of the school year. Bianca watches her fellow classmates, most of them vampires, a few unknowing humans, as they arrive at the castle-like school of Evernight Academy--a sanctuary for vampires and a place where they can learn to live like humans and keep up with the times.
Bianca is only part vampire. Only once every few centuries do two full vampires give birth to a living child. Bianca needs to eat human food as well as blood and as she matures, her blood lust becomes stronger. One day, she will end a human life and complete her transformation, but something is stopping her--she's in love with a vampire hunter.
*SPOILER IF YOU HAVEN'T READ EVERNIGHT*
Lucas Ross, a Black Cross hunter. In EVERNIGHT, Lucas infiltrated the school in an attempt to discover why they were allowing human students to attend. He and Bianca fell in love before they knew what the other was.
This year, something else is attempting to breach the sanctuary of the school and Bianca doesn't know who she can trust. Even her heart is confusing her.
STARGAZER has adventure, mystery and romance all neatly tied together with some supernatural fun. I can't wait for HOURGLASS, the third installment of the Evernight Series!
