“If you can’t trust your best friend with your deepest darkest secret, who can you trust?”

“Dark secrets and unspoken suspicions come between Zoey and Stevie Rae, putting their friendship-and the House of Night-at risk. After Zoey Redbird and her gang have banished Kalona and Neferet from Tusla, you’d think they’d catch a break. But with Zoey and her sexy warrior Stark both recovering from a brush with death, and the fledgelings struggling to deal with the fallout from Neferet’s reign of terror, a break is just not in the forecast. Zoey is haunted by her confusing yet elemental connection with A-ya, the ancient Cherokee maiden who was the only human able to tempt Kalona’s body and soul. How will A-ya’s pull on her affect Zoey’s ability to resist the dangerously seductive immortal? Meanwhile, Stevie Rae, with her super red-vamp powers, always thought she could handle the stuff she’s been keeping from her BFF. But the mysterious, threatening force lurking in the tunnels under the Tusla Depot is spreading. Stevie Rae won’t confide where she’s been and what she’s doing, and Zoey is beginning to wonder just how much she can trust the person she always thought would have her back. Will their choices destroy them and will darkness consume the House of Night?”

This is the sixth novel in the house of night series. Even though Kalona and Neferet are banished from Tulsa, they haven’t run off to lick their wounds, they have only just begun.

Each chapter begins with a name, Zoey is always first person and others are third person. This gives us room for more sub-plots and relief from the boredom that may loom in this novel. It was boring at certain points, otherwise, without the threat of Kalona giving the story some ump, it was good. The subplots with Stevie Rae I particularly liked. They were the best part of the story.
