Afterlife (Evernight 4) by Claudia Gray

Destiny awaits Bianca and Lucas . . .
Bianca and Lucas have always believed they could endure anything to be together. When a twist of fate not only transforms Bianca into a wraith but also turns Lucas into a vampire—the very creature he spent his life hunting—they are left reeling.
Haunted by his powerful need to kill, Lucas can turn to only one place for help . . . Evernight Academy. Bianca is determined to remain with him. But with the vampire leader of Evernight waging a war against wraiths, her former home has become the most dangerous place she could be, despite the new powers her ghostly transformation has given her.
A battle between wraiths and vampires looms, and Bianca and Lucas face a terrifying new reality. They've overcome every obstacle life has thrown at them, but is their love strong enough to survive the challenges after life?

Hourglass ended with a killer hang over that it upsets me that I have to wait a year to find out what is going to happen next. 

In Afterlife, we've reach the final conclusion of the vampire version of star-crossed lovers. He belongs to vampire Hunters named Black Cross, and she a vampire child. Like a series that I learned to love, I am sad that this is end of story for Lucas & Bianca. But it does not have the same intensity when  found out that  am reading the last book of the Twilight series, or that Rose's story has ended. For this one, all I cared about is the conclusion? What will happen Bianca and Lucas now, that she had become a Wraith and he a vampire? Is Black Cross going to continue haunting the good vampires even though one of their own is now undead? So it goes to say that I am no going to miss the characters, well ok maybe Balthazar (and I am glad he is going to have his own series) It is sad that Bianca has not grown through out the series. She still have that childish tendency to her even after all the bad things that happen.

The surprising things are these... The first one is the sex & fangs scene in a hotel in Philadelphia, it is me or there is a bit of a kinkiness in that scene that I've never read before in any YA paranormal books? For a minute there I thought I was reading a more adult version of a vampire lit. let's be clear it is not dirty or anything, I was just surprise.

The conclusion for me... I am glad the series is over, Gray has failed to give me WTF moments as astounding as the first book and that Bianca's choices continue to annoy me. On to the next one, I cannot wait for Balthazar's story.
