Book Review #8: Awakened by P.C. Cast + Kristen Cast

“At the brink of destruction, what will on desperate girl do to keep her heart from being irreparably broken?”

“Exonerated by the Vampyre High Council and returned to her position of High Priestess at Tusla’s House of Night, Neferet has sworn vengeance on Zoey. Dominion over Kalona is only one of the weapons she plans to use against Z. But Zoey has found some sanctuary on the Isle of Skye and is being groomed by Queen Sgaich to take over for her there. Being Queen would be cool, wouldn’t it? Why should she return to Tusla? After losing her human consort, Heath, she will never be the same- and her relationship with her super-hot Warrior, Stark, may never be the same either.

And what about Stevie Rae and Rephaim? The Raven Mocker refuses to be used against Stevie Rae, but what choice does he have when no one in the entire world, including Zoey, would be okay with their relationship? Does he betray his father or his heart?”

Oh Rephaim, why don’t you choose me instead of Stevie Rae? I’m sure she’ll be fine with Erik or something. I was thinking this was supposed to be the last novel of the House of Night, but Destined is to be released Oct. 25, so I don’t have to wait too long to get my Rephaim fix.

So this novel really showed some growth in the story, from both Stevie Rae and Zoey. Zoey learned to put her friends before her own needs and strives to not crumble under the mess that she and her friends have gotten into. This book surprised me with new twists and turns and being sexy. (And also I can’t picture how Stevie Rae kisses Rephaim when he has a bird’s head, probably a break too.

Also (spoiler: It was definitely hard to picture Neferet naked. Yuck.)

So overall this novel was pretty solid, with barely any boring parts and was satisfying. I have nothing bad to say about it except that I was frustrated with Neferet (who isn’t?).
