“My love, speak to me.  Tell me everything.”  Neferet went to Kalona, kneeling before him, stroking the soft, dark wings that unfurled loosely around the immortal.

“What would you have me say?”  He didnt meet her eyes. 

 “Zoey lives.” Neferets voice was flat, cold, lifeless.

“She does.”

“Then you owe me the subservience of your immortal soul.”  She started to walk away from him.

“Where are you going?  What will happen next?”

 “It is quite simple.  I will ensure Zoey is drawn back to Oklahoma.  There, on my own terms, I will complete the task you failed.”

Exonerated by the Vampyre High Council and returned to her position of High Priestess at Tulsas House of Night, Neferet has sworn vengeance on Zoey.  Dominion over Kalona is only one of the weapons she plans to use against Z.  But Zoey has found sanctuary on the Isle of Skye and is being groomed by Queen Sgiach to take over for her there.  Being Queen would be cool, wouldnt it?  Why should she return to Tulsa? After losing her human consort, Heath, she will never be the same - and her relationship with her super-hot-warrior, Stark, may never be the same either…

And what about Stevie Rae and Rephaim?  The Raven Mocker refuses to be used against Stevie Rae, but what choice does he have when no one in the entire world, including Zoey, would be okay with their relationship?  Does he betray his father or his heart?

In the pulse-pounding 8th book in the bestselling House of Night series, how far will the bonds of friendship stretch and how strong are the ties that bind one girls heart?

Synopsis:

Zoey has returned from the Otherworld to her rightful place as High Priestess at the House of Night. Her friends are just glad to have her back, but after losing her human consort, Heath, will Zoey--or her relationship with her super-hot Warrior, Stark--ever be the same?

Synopsis:

The must-read eighth installment in the award-winning, New York Times bestselling young adult vampyre series. The House of Night is sure to keep fans hooked.

I just finished reading Awakened, A House of Night Novel that follows fledgling High Priestess, Zoey Redbird, after her soul was shattered. Zoey must find the strength to return to her home in Tulsa with her Warrior and Consort, Stark to intervene in the evil lurking caused by Neferet and Kalona.

It is my belief that P.C. and Kristin Cast carried out our expectations well in this latest novel, which keeps you hanging on for more. They use a witty writing style that captures the essence of youth and thus is appealing which enables them to get their point across to a wide variety of audiences.

Generally, this book is written for young adults and teenagers. That being said, I’m in my thirties and continue to faithfully follow the series.

I really love the idea behind the HON series. From the first book that I read, I was hooked. It’s my opinion that the book uses quite a few clichés repeatedly, which may actually be part of the draw to the series. For me, it actually became just a little too droning. It would be my recommendation to continue usage of these clever clichés, but to exercise a little repetition. Of course, this is only my opinion.

The HON series is original and different, which makes them stand out. Even though Awakened was not my favorite of the series, I still had a hard time putting this book down once I got started. P.C. and Kristin are genius writers and mega superstars due to their successful imaginations. I “heart” them and the HON series!

As you read each book in The House of Night series you will find that each one is better than the last book. I can't seem to get enough of Zoey Redbird & her friends. The excitement in this book will keep you on the edge of your seat through the very last page of the book! I love this series so much, I read the whole series in one month. P.C. Cast & her daughter can't write this series fast enough for me! You won't want to miss the adventures of Zoey Redbird & all the quirky friends & foes that are introduced in each book! This series is also the ONLY series I have not been able to wait for all the books to come out in paperback. The series is so exceptional that I bought the last few books in hardback! You won't be able to put this series down until you've finished all of it!
