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?

First of all I have to say that I found this book sluggish. Maybe it’s the fact that I’m not so much into this series anymore, or maybe it’s actually the story being slow, but I ended up enjoying it only at the end. The whole Zoey being a coward and refusing to leave Skye lasted too long for my taste. Eventually something tragic happens (I’ll avoid mentioning what for the sake of spoilers) blah blah blah and the book starts to make its pace a biiit faster. And yet I gain even more problems with Zoey. I feel like she’s too weak and silly to be the mighty High Priestess everyone depends so much on. Seriously in time of despair she acts all cute and cuddly when she should be screaming and demanding someone’s (we all know who) death and destruction. And all the bullpoopie crap is too much to handle. Seriously?!?! You think it’s cute? It’s not!

Aaaanyways, the good things about the book are Stark and Rephaim. Period!
