Destined: House of Night Series, Book 9

Zoey is finally home where she belongs, safe with her Guardian Warrior, Stark, by her side, and preparing to face off against Neferet - which would be a whole lot easier if the High Counsel saw the ex-High Priestess for what she really is. Kalona has released his hold on Rephaim, and, through Nyx's gift of a human form, Rephaim and Stevie Rae are finally able to be together - if he can truly walk the path of the Goddess and stay free of his father's shadow.

Publisher's Summary

Zoey is finally home where she belongs, safe with her Guardian Warrior, Stark, by her side, and preparing to face off against Neferet - which would be a whole lot easier if the High Counsel saw the ex-High Priestess for what she really is. Kalona has released his hold on Rephaim, and, through Nyx's gift of a human form, Rephaim and Stevie Rae are finally able to be together - if he can truly walk the path of the Goddess and stay free of his father's shadow.

But there are new forces at work at the House of Night. An influx of humans, including Lenobia’s handsome horse whisperer, threatens their precarious stability. And then there’s the mysterious Aurox, a jaw-droppingly gorgeous teen boy who is actually more - or possibly less - than human. Only Neferet knows he was created to be her greatest weapon. But Zoey can sense the part of his soul that remains human, the compassion that wars with his Dark calling. And there’s something strangely familiar about him….

Will Neferet’s true nature be revealed before she succeeds in silencing them all? And will Zoey be able to touch Aurox’s humanity in time to protect him - and everyone - from his own fate? Find out what’s destined in the next thrilling chapter of the House of Night series.

    "Destined- A HOUSE OF NIGHT NOVEL # 9"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Destined to be better than the print version?

    I have the Hardback, Kindle, and Audible Versions of this series


    What did you like best about this story?

    The excitement of how they bring Heath back into the story. That even though he's back they don't discard Stark.


    What does Caitlin Davies bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Let's you hear as the writer intended without distorting the names.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I loved the book!


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait until Oct. 2014, the Final Book 12 Redeemed will be on sale!

    "Loved It!"

    It was worth the wait! The only bad thing is that I have to wait a year for the next book! This book had me crying and biting my nails with anticipation. I loved it! It leaves you hanging and eagerly waiting on the next book in the series.

    "Really what has it come to?"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Anyone looking to just read a book in a series that's basically filler.


    What could P. C. Cast and Kristin Cast have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Don't make everything so repetitive. It's almost copy paste of everything they have done in this series.


    What three words best describe Caitlin Davies’s voice?

    She did okay. Nothing special although there were times where she made all the guys sound the exact same.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I liked the fact that Kalona did try and mend things with his son. That was kinda sweet.


    Any additional comments?

    The Cast duo must really not remember what they have characters say. In the second book Stevie Rae say her friends should like a bunch of 'r words' and now she goes around saying it's bad. I don't use the word, but why are you gonna have her use it and then have her jumping down people's throats about it? Is it suppose to be she realized it wasn't a good word? Could you have shown us when that happened?

    Story
    "Well done"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Destined to be better than the print version?

    No, because with human reading there is always going to be some measure of differing in pronunciation and emotion. This reader did a very good job in my opinion. But she does occasionally pronounce things in a strange way, and seems to put the wrong emotional emphasis on some things. Over all though she does a good job. I don't feel that it is fair to judge her harshly based on reading differently than I do.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like that the authors mixed up the reactions of the main characters, and no longer is Zoey miss goodie two shoes, whining and constantly crying.. they left the story off on a line of making the reader feel they have to read the next book whether or not they even liked the story.


    What about Caitlin Davies’s performance did you like?

    My favorite part about Caitlin Davies' performance is her portrayal of Neferet... I feel like she is spot on with her voice and inflection!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did tear up a bit when Nicole and Stevie Ray had their talk.


    Any additional comments?

    To the people that are complaining about her portrayal of Kramesha, she read it exactly as it is written in the books. If you are going to complain about her making Kramesha sound too "ghetto" perhaps you should read the actual books before you throw a fit. Caitlin read her EXACTLY as she is written...EXACTLY.

    "Finally! Geez....."

    I loved this series in the beginning, and then after Neferet was solidly on the side of Darkness, the series dragged on for about 3 books. All of that crushing boredom finally becomes worth it in the last 3 or 4 hours of Destined. I feel like the plot FINALLY feel like the plot got off it's lazy ass and started going again. I was going to quit, but now I feel invested again and will continue on with the series.

    "Better"

    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. Getting used to her voice but I still think she sound too young to the parts.

    Liked the development of the story line, but was left on a huge cliffy at the end.

    "Great book!!!"
    Would you listen to Destined again? Why?

    Yes, the series is great, and I like listening a second time and picking up on things I may have missed the first time.


    What other book might you compare Destined to and why?

    Any of the other books in the series
