When friends stop trusting each other, Darkness is there to fan the flames.
Things have turned black at the House of Night. Zoey Redbird’s soul has shattered. With everything she’s ever stood for falling apart, and a broken heart making her want to stay in the Otherworld forever, Zoey’s fading fast. It’s seeming more and more doubtful that she will be able pull herself back together in time to rejoin her friends and set the world to rights. As the only living person who can reach her, Stark must find a way to get to her. But how? He will have to die to do so, the Vampire High Council stipulates. And then Zoey will give up for sure. There are only seven days left.
Enter BFF Stevie Rae. She wants to help Z but she has massive problems of her own. The rogue Red Fledglings are acting up, and this time not even Stevie Rae can protect them from the consequences. Her kinda boyfriend, Dallas, is sweet but too nosy for his own good. The truth is, Stevie Rae’s hiding a secret that might be the key to getting Zoey home but also threatens to explode her whole world.
In the middle of the whole mess is Aphrodite: ex-Fledgling, trust-fund baby, total hag from Hell (and proud of it). She’s always been blessed (if you could call it that) with visions that can reveal the future, but now it seems Nyx has decided to speak through her with the goddess’s own voice, whether she wants it or not. Aphrodite’s loyalty can swing a lot of different ways, but right now Zoey’s fate hangs in the balance.
Three girls…playing with fire…if they don’t watch out, everyone will get Burned.

great come back can't wait for the next book. I just cant believe WTF Stevie Ray is doing, boy Zoey you had better HURRY!!!!!!! Thanks P.C Cast and Kristin Cast so wich of you is Zoey????
I liked the narrator- have read all the other HON books in ebook so this was my first audio and I thought she depicted each character well. The book did feel a little short like they stretched out the story by telling other people's POV but it was interesting to hear how others saw the same situation. The HON series is a little cheaper pricewise so the books do seem shorter than say a Stephenie Meyer book which costs more. While the story is focused on a teenager as the heroin, it covers topics that all ages (except really young tweens) can relate to so despite being 39 yrs old I love these books. waiting til next year for the conclusion is awful- will keep busy with Richelle Mead and Spirit Bound from Vampire Academy series and hopefully Lauren Kate with her follow up to Fallen by the Fall of 2010. These are all great books - somewhat in this style of Urban Fantasy - if your looking for something til the next HON.
I'm probably too old to love these books as much as I do (32!) but I am completely in love with these characters! Not at all ashamed to admit that I was crying and laughing within the first hour, and it just continued from there. The Characters and story lines progress nicely. I love the way the story was split into multiple character points of view.
My only complaint is that this is the FOURTH narrator for the series. Seriously? Why can't we just stick with one? I like Jenna Lamia and Cassandra Morris the best. JMO.
You know, I am starting to see that everyone has a different opinion when it comes to narrators. This is the first Narrator that I have actually enjoyed listening to in a while! shes very descriptive, and has a pleasant, calming voice. As far as the book itself goes, I am enjoying it to! I do not see it being to "wordy" as other reviews put it. I mean whats a book without words? ^^
I read the first few books in this series and really liked them so I decided to get this one on audio. Well the voices they use in this are almost enough to make you not want to finish. I will either read the others or skip the rest of this series
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.
Stevie Rae is falling in love and keeping it a secret. Zoey is shattered, and know one can wake her up. Stark will have to go in to her dreams and wake her up, will it work, you will have to listen.
