Publisher's Summary

A great journey… A new love… A dark secret revealed.

Evreux, France, 1788: Before she is Zoey’s favorite professor and the House of Night’s powerful horse mistress… Lenobia is just a normal 16-year-old girl – with enough problems to last a lifetime. As the illegitimate daughter of a powerful baron, she has never quite belonged, and instead has to watch her spoiled half-sister, Cecile, get anything she wants. As if that’s not enough, her remarkable beauty draws unwanted attention wherever she goes. For once, she would like to just fit in.

But when fate intervenes, Lenobia suddenly finds herself surrounded by other girls, on a ship bound for New Orleans, where they will be married off to the city’s richest Frenchmen. And they’re not alone…. An evil bishop who is skilled in Dark magic makes the same journey. His appetite for lovely young women makes him dangerous – most of all to Lenobia, who caught his eye back in France. So she remains hidden, making secret visits to the ship’s stables, where a handsome young man and his beautiful Percheron horses soon capture her attention.

Will they make it to land before the bishop discovers her true identity and a powerful evil breaks loose? And will Lenobia follow her heart, even if it puts lives at risk? Find out more about one of your favorite professors in the next heart-thumping House of Night novella.

Really Sad but So Good!

Again, I have to say that I really love these Novellas because it explains our favorite characters from the House of Night Series. It was a welcome change because the House of Night seemed to be one problem after another with very few events to be happy about. I am utterly addicted to this series as well as these Novellas but they can be very sad so I enjoy getting the back stories; it makes me want to keep reading in spite of all the sad bits. Spoiler Alert-In the House of Night Series we know that Lenobia is falling in love with the new human stableman but in this Novella we find out who Lenobia's first love was and why she made a vow.

Great Book even if it is sad! Love this Series!

Beautiful and sad

It's amazing to hear what the Professors went through before going home to the amazing House of Night! Nyx sure does choose the most wonderful, special souls.
