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.

loved the book and the performance was very believable,kept me on my toes and I didn't want it to end looking forward for the next one
Anyone looking to just read a book in a series that's basically filler.
Don't make everything so repetitive. It's almost copy paste of everything they have done in this series.
She did okay. Nothing special although there were times where she made all the guys sound the exact same.
I liked the fact that Kalona did try and mend things with his son. That was kinda sweet.
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?
Best book outta the ENTIRE House of Night series... So far :) Can't wait to read the next installment
I love to read!
Zoey's story continues...along with other plot twists and (former) minor characters develop into characters who will definitely play major roles in the continuing saga. I've heard that there will be a (possible) total of 15 books in this series. So...we'll all have to hang in there, because the end is apparently not in sight.
Yes. Love Stevie Rae's voice!
There were many. And I am not the biggest fan of this series, but this book in particular really kept me interested. When Rafeen's brothers came to talk with him and one was killed was shocking, Dragon's extreme sadness and then his death and reuinting with his mate, Kalona's change of heart.
I have not.
No, but I did like this book better than the 3-4 previous in the same story. This one did not drag along - it stayed interesting and I really appreciated the less "twin" thing. That drove me nuts. I have stuck with the series because I like paranormal romance and I really like the stories aimed at young adults because they are less sexual and violent. I did not read the last book, but was still able to pick up the storyline from the one before.
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.
Start at book one to get the characters. Enjoyable easy reading with a few fun twists to the storyline. A teen book that makes a good transition to adult. Wasn't too sure about the reader on the first book however, she is very consistent and does each character justice.
The way Zoe and friends grew, the fight for good over evil and the dark force in Neferet.
Zoe and her grandmother
Will read the next book
A better story and a narrator that sounded a bit older
The story line has gotten increasingly worse, nothing happens. The book goes on about one thing and leads up to one event the whole book long.
I loved this series starting out, but its just going on for too long now. The story line is getting increasingly worse and the narrator is terrible.
