“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 didn’t meet her eyes. “Zoey lives.” Neferet’s 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 Tulsa’s 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, wouldn’t 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 girl’s heart?

HON rocks something special. The heroine is strong and courageous. That is why I prefer this series to Twilight. I hate weak women and I hate to read about them even more. I ike that it conveys being strong and sometimes changing to become something more even when it isn't the popular choice. In this book we see Rephaim and can see the turmoil pain and difficulty change can bring but how love is worth the sacrifice.
It also promotes breaking barriers of dissent and segregation. Even when family is the one that has framed the idea of that in one's mind. Is it possible to open one's self to love when you never had a framework of it? Is it even worth it?
This is an important book in the series. We see how important love is and may even be the ultimate weapon as is the ultimate price.
I love this book for giving us so much to think upon. Excellent!
I haven't read the printed version but audio is great. It would be even better if they added in sound effects like the author of vampire academy did.
I love to read and listen to books. I'm a hair dresser. I live in New York and I have 5 children. All grown. 30, 27, 24, 23, 19. And I Love them all very much.
Proms will tell the truth, Raven Marker will have to make a choose whether to help Stevie Rae. Something bad happens to Jack.The Raven Maker is out for everyone to see and Stevie Rae has to come clean about there feelings. Nyx's comes out for everyone see.
I would have focused more on Stevie Rae and the Raven Mocker. Unlike the previous books where Zoe has multiple love interests, Stevie Rae only has one, a crazy one... and it would have made the book more worth while to understand those dynamics more.
Yes, I'm waiting on the final book now.
Better than the last narrator worse than the first narrator for the series.
I fall asleep listening to my audio books... if it konks me out it's worth it. :)
The first 4 books in the series seems promising. The last few however seem to be books to fill in the gaps. I wish they had more details and explanations. But it is what it is, and Im the kind of person who has to know what happens in the end.
I got into Vampire books after Twilight came out. This is a great series. I have read all the books and just purchased the newest one, Destined. Was anxiously awaiting its release ! You will not be disappointed with this series.
Caitlin is no Edwina Wren, but this is MUCH better than jenna or cassandra (books 4-6). Still think there needs to be more difference in the character voices, but at least her voice and inflection is tolerable. She definitely gets bonus points for mostly correct pronunciations, for example sons of erubis and refeim.
Story itself was good. Was def a lead into the next book. Can't wait to start new one.
This is my favorite book in the series. Again the mother daughter duo does an outstanding job pulling you in until the end. I love how this book had some sad undertones but still made me want more. I thought the passion between characters was well written and not over the top.
In addition, this is the second book of the series I listened to and I enjoyed the reader. She had a pleasant voice and did not exaggerate accents.
This series while interesting has been moving a little slow, considering it takes a book to get through one night of the story... we actually get through a few days in Awakened, and the story moves along quite a bit. Looking forward to the next installment.
The first half of the book had so much cheese, Velveeta was jealous. I'm glad I stuck it out, though b/c the second half was awesome. I thought the narrator did a great job. I think the Casts are improving in their writing skills, save the very Harlequin Romance beginning. Plus, I like the return of a certain character whom I thought was poorly judged. Over all, it was really enjoyable and I can't wait til Nov!
I have enjoyed the series from the first chapter of the first book. But the last two books have just left a little to be desired. I have kind of felt that although they have good plots and some, "Ooo! can't stop now" moments, they have kind of circled and not really went anywhere except predictable. Although in the next to last chapter, whew!! did not see that comming. Don't get me wrong I will be first in line to get the next one in November, I just hope that it may start to wrap some things up.
