"Until we have fresh blood for him to drink, leaving him unconscious is a kindness," Balthazar said. Just when I might have softened toward him, he had to add, "When you calm down enough to act like an adult, you'll see that."
I wondered what my parents would say now, and whether there was any advice they could have given us. We'd parted badly before I ran off with Lucas at the beginning of the summer; at the moment, I missed them so much it hurt. What would they think of everything that had happened in the past couple of days?
I glanced at Lucas--the pale cool stillness of his flesh, the way that death had brightened his eyes and carved out his cheekbones--and thought beakly,Well, they always wanted me to end up with a nice vampire boy.

I usually judge a book by it's ending. In my opinion the ending is the most important element of a story. What gives you the lasting impression of a book you just read? It's the ending. The feeling of whether your satisfied or you want more or it just wasn't for you or it was perfect or you flat out hated it, really depends on the ending. Going back to my earlier point I have mixed feelings about the ending. I liked Bianca's ending, just not Lucas's. Let's leave it as the ending wasn't for me. The book's pacing at the beginning was also very slow.
What I did like is seeing old characters come back. I love a close nit group of friends and family. I also enjoyed reading about some of the new characters introduced such as Christopher and Skye. This series really didn't have much characters compared to others, and I liked that. It gives us more room to get to know the current characters. Lucas and Bianca's relationship grows a great deal in this book, probably the most out of the entire series. We see just how far they are willing to go to stay together and how much they deserve it.
I really enjoyed this series and I'm a little sad to see it go.
I can't wait to read it - I hope he mets someone in it, he deserves it.
Afterlife marks the riveting conclusion to the love story that began in Evernight. Having become what they feared most, Bianca and Lucas face a terrifying new reality: Lucas is a vampire, and Bianca is a wraith. They've overcome every obstacle life has thrown at them, but is their love strong enough to survive the challenges after life?
