Bianca wants to escape.
She's been uprooted from her small hometown and enrolled at Evernight Academy, an eerie Gothic boarding school where the student are somehow too perfect: smart, sleek and almost predatory. Bianca knows she doesn't fit in. Then she meets Lucas. He's not the 'Evernight type' either, and he likes it that way.
But the connection between them can't be denied, but dark secrets are fated to tear them both apart ... and to make Bianca question everything she's ever believed.
Evernight Academy: an exclusive boarding school for the most beautiful, dangerous students of all - vampires. Bianca born to two vampires has always been told her destiny is to become one of them. But Bianca fell in love with Lucas - a vampire hunter sworn to destroy her kind. They were torn apart when his true identity was revealed, forcing him to flee the school.
Although they may be separated, Bianca and Lucas will not give each other up. She will risk anything for the chance to see him again.
Bianca has found refuge again with the Black Cross, and she and Lucas work desperately to keep her secret. In this company, being a vampire is a death sentence, and the two of them live and train alongside the hunters without anyone noticing her increasing need for blood.
When another betrayal puts the lovers in mortal danger once more, they realise that all they truly have is one another.
But with the secret of Bianca's birth taking hold, not even Lucas can help her win her toughest fight.
