this book is ful of surprises and also water filled eyes as well. As Zoey starts to learn the real truth about the people close to her even people you 'd never expect, fill you with suspense and excitment. If you read this book you'll never put it down cause each sentence has more and more suspence to keep you reading more and more. Zoey loses someone but finds someone closes to her that she might have never lost. She figures out that "light doesnt always bring good and darkness dosent always bring bad"(quote from house of night) well she start to trust the one person she never trusted and listen to her gut through the tuff times.......well read the book and find out

when i was younger i had a babysitter that was reading these books. i asked what they were and she told me. i went to the liberay the next day and found it. so i gave the book a try and i noticed after awhile that i kept reading it and when i was finished i found out that it wasn't real, that the book pulled me in it to think i was the girl, i noticed that the book showed that even though the book is not a real life, it was a life i could excape to. i could read the life that i would love to have, and i would think i was in it. but the only problem with the book was when it ended my fantasy ended.
