Synopses & Reviews
What if the hottest guy in the world was hiding a nameless evil, and all he wanted was you?
At the start of this heart-pounding new installment of the bestselling House of Night series, Zoeys friends have her back again and Stevie Rae and the red fledglings arent Neferets secrets any longer. But an unexpected danger has emerged. Neferet guards her powerful new consort, Kalona, and no one at the House of Night seems to understand the threat he poses. Kalona looks gorgeous, and he has the House of Night under his spell. A past life holds the key to breaking his rapidly spreading influence, but what if this past life shows Zoey secrets she doesnt want to hear and truths she cant face?
On the run and holed up in Tulsas Prohibition-era tunnels, Zoey and her gang must discover a way to deal with something that might bring them all down. Meanwhile, Zoey has a few other little problems. The red fledglings have cleaned up well - theyve even managed to make the dark, creepy tunnels feel more like home - but are they really as friendly as they seem? On the boyfriend front, Zoey has a chance to make things right with super-hot ex-, Erik, but she cant stop thinking about Stark, the archer who died in her arms after one unforgettable night, and she is driven to try to save him from Neferets sinister influence at all costs. Will anyone believe the power evil has to hide among us?
Praise for The House of Night:
“Move over, Stephenie Meyer.” -People on Hunted
“Zoey Redbird's first-person adventures take on added danger and importance in the latest House of Night release. Forced by circumstance to grow up quickly, Zoey's emotional and spiritual evolution is fascinating. The Cast duo breathes life and vibrancy into the characters and makes each one an integral part of the saga. Awesome and unforgettable as always!” --RT Book Reviews (4.5 stars) on Hunted
“The Cast duo has done it again! These ladies appear to be an unstoppable force within the world of YA literature… Teenage readers will be drawn to Zoeys everyday, angst-riddled life. Not only does she need to save the world, Zoey needs to solve some major vampyre/human boy drama. These stories are surreal, yet shockingly accurate when it comes to teenagers and their lives.” -TeensReadToo.com (5 stars) on Hunted
“Teenage issues can seem like life or death, but in this haunting series, House of Night, thats really the case. Through Zoeys eyes readers are led into a world thats getting more complicated by the minute, where friends and enemies can switch positions in a heartbeat. The remarkable Cast duo continues to build a world that you wont soon forget!” -RT Book Reviews (4.5 stars) on Chosen“This highly addicting series offers a unique twist on the standard vampyre story....These books will have the reader laughing hysterically and sobbing unreservedly -sometimes all at once.” -VOYA on both Marked and Betrayed “Marked is one of the best coming of age stories to come out of Oklahoma since S. E. Hintons The Outsiders. It teaches about the beauty of being a social outcast, friendship, and finding your own inner spirituality.” -The Beltane Papers
“Zoey Redbird… is basically the most relatable vampire — sorry, fledgling vampyre — I've ever read about.” -MTV.com “Readers will identify with many of the characters, especially the protagonist.” -Library Journal on Marked
