“What if the hottest guy in the world was hiding a nameless evil, and all he wanted was you?”
“At the start of this heart-pounding new installment of the bestselling House of Night series, Zoey and her gang must discover a way to deal with an unexpected danger that might bring them all down. Neferet guards her powerful new consort, Kalona, who looks gorgeous and has the House of Night under his spell. A past life holds the key to breaking his rapidly spreading power, but what if it shows Zoey truths she can’t face? Meanwhile, the red fledglings have cleaned up well, but are they really as friendly as they seem? On the boyfriend front, Zoey has a chance to fix things with her super-hot ex, Erik, but she can’t stop thinking about Stark, the archer who died in her arms, and she is driven to save him from Neferet’s sinister infulence. Will anyone believe the power evil has to hide among us?”
This was by far the best book of the series. At first I was kind of not expecting the whole Kalona legend becoming the climax in the series, and him coming back kind of confirmed it to be the conflict. But I actually think this was a great and unique twist to the story. Also, I have yet to look up whether it was an actual Cherokee legend.
Personally I actually like Stark better at this point, even though I at first Zoey fixes things with Erik, but at a point when Heath and Erik butt heads, Erik is more possessive and controlling with Zoey.
Zoey goes through so much growth in this series, this book especially. She goes to fulfill her destiny as High Priestess in training, despite all the stress that is put on her she manages not to crumble under the pressure. She definitely fits the heroine status now.
