Exonerated by the Vampyre High Council and returned to her position of High Priestess at Tulsa’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 sanctuary on the Isle of Skye and is being groomed by Queen Sgiach to take over for her there.  Being Queen would be cool, wouldn’t it?  Why should she return to Tulsa? 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?

In the pulse-pounding 8th book in the bestselling House of Night series, how far will the bonds of friendship stretch and how strong are the ties that bind one girl’s heart?

I give up on this series. The whole series keeps making one big loop over and over and over and I am done with it. I can't stand the unrealistic way the teens talk and act sometimes and I am over it. I am usually more friendly in my negative reviews but I have invested so much emotion into this series I am sad to go out like this. The first six or so books were absolutely read up until there.

  1. I haven't been able to get myself to read this for the same reasons that you listed.

  2. I'm probably heading where you are. I finished Tempted recently and said that I won't continue with the series but the ending came as a big shock so I will probably give the next book a read if I have some time this summer.

  3. I don't believe I even got past the second or third book. It amazed me to learn that they were as popular and well-liked as they are!
