Claudia Gray caught everyone off guard by bringing out the very enticing and fascinating book Evernight.
Stargazer followed a few months later.
This is a great series about a teenage girl going through normal feelings and troubles of human teenagers.
However, there is one difference.

This series is guaranteed to catch your attention with the emotions and action that Claudia Gray so well describes.
Wonderful book, encapturing, and powerful. Highly recommended. Erica.
