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.

Sometimes cliff hangers are a real pain & sometimes they are used appropriately. After reading Destined, you'll see that the latter is true for this book. Even though the 1st books in this series were the best, I like the way the story is forming & I can *gasp* see a possible end in sight! Then hopefully all of my cliff hanger questions will be answered. The narrator to these books is not my favorite, mainly because of how long it takes certain characters to complete a sentence but other than that it was a good book. I would say its probably worthy to take up space on the "2nd shelf" of your wishlist.
I have the Hardback, Kindle, and Audible Versions of this series
The excitement of how they bring Heath back into the story. That even though he's back they don't discard Stark.
Let's you hear as the writer intended without distorting the names.
I loved the book!
Can't wait until Oct. 2014, the Final Book 12 Redeemed will be on sale!
well the story have slowly been getting less interesting over the last couple of books...
probably because it's been getting more predictable as P.C. Cast have lock herself into several storylines and now she doesn't feel like starting others till these are finishing up...
unfourtunately i saw it coming from about the middle of the books
unfourtunately i've listened to a different narrator of previous books in the series which means this just isn't the same
not anything i didn't start thinking from the previous books atleast...
good entertainment for the money and i wouldn't stop reading the series even though it's slowed down with this one...
I want to start by saying I Love this series!!
However, had I known that they were going to go through four narrarators whom do not sound the same. Go from a six book series to twelve I would have never bought these on audible.
This series is so fast paced you can't get bored! If you haven't read from the beginning you will be lost. A lot of authors put so much back story into sequals you feel as if you don't need to read them to know what's going on. Not in this series. One book will end and the next picks up the next day and if you don't remember you may need to go back and catch back up in between release dates.
I feel as all of these books are good in their own right. Destined is no different.
It's a great short story. I think this one is just better read and not listened too. The narrarator has voiced the last three books I believe. In this book it's hard to decipher her voices to the characters. I believe the first book she narrorated she tried to sound more like the past narrorators with individual voices to the characters. This time she got lazy in parts and you cannot decipher which character you are listening too. That was awful.
I don't think you can describe the book without giving too much away. But, if you are a fan of the series.....do not give up. We only have to wait for three more books to finally come to a conclusion. As with all of the others, things are changing again and there are a few new characters added and a death as well. And of course it ends right when you think something good can finally happen for the gang.
I absolutely love it! it's just sadly a bit pricey to buy the book and a monthly fee
I, like some others, have been tempted to give up on this series because it's too long or whatever reason, but I continued mostly out of curiosity, and because I missed the characters I suppose. My advice for others is to keep going and read this one more, and then give up after if need be. For me, it was worth it.
The book shows many underlying lessons in life about the good and the bad.
Aphrodite, she's is very forward and honest.
I loved the scene where Dragon/Brian is reunited with Anastasia
I am really enjoying the house of night nooks looking forward to find out more ;):):)
"Here we go again..."
So as usual there's the punch up, calling of the circle, just in the nick of time and the lovey dovey babble, but get past the predictability and you'll enjoy it.
The plot is finally on the move again, where the last few books have felt like fodder to get the series through all 12 books, this one actually engages you. It's a good listen as long as you know the back story.
We meet a new (ish) character called Aurox, and similarly to Erik, Heath, Stark, Prof. Blake and every other guy that ever had any sort of attraction to Zoey, he is drawn to her and 'feels' when he's around her...
Give it a go, it is good, despite how I seem to have only said bad things, I did enjoy it as I have all of the series. :)
I have enjoyed all the books this series which was introduced to me by a friend. I didn't think I would enjoy these books as I don't tend to enjoy vampire books but these are different to books such as Twilight (which I didn't enjoy). So, I am looking forward to the next book, Hidden and the many novellas about the different adult vampires.
"A great series of vampire novels"
If you like the young adult Vampire type books, this series is for you! However, them keep changing the narrator is annoying, you just get used to one voice for the main and other characters then they change it! Only bad point I can make! Other than that it's great.
