This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
At last, Zoey has what she wanted: the truth is out. Neferet’s evil has been exposed, and the High Council is no longer on her side – but she’s far from done wreaking havoc in the vampyre world. First, a mysterious fire ravages the stables. Then, Neferet makes a devastating move that will test them all.
With the seeds of distrust sown and Darkness breeding chaos at the House of Night, everyone must band together – but that’s proving to be more difficult than ever before. The twins are barely speaking and the House of Night’s former enemy, Kalona, has now become their warrior, pushing their trust to the limit. To top it off, Zoey is pretty darn sure she might be losing her mind. She saw something when she looked at Aurox through the Seer Stone that she can hardly explain to herself, let alone her friends. Is it possible that Heath has come back in a different form? Is that why Zoey’s so intrigued by Aurox, when it’s so obvious that he’s dangerous? And who would believe her if she told them? Zoey knows that following her instinct about Aurox might be just what they need to defeat evil . . . but if she’s wrong, it could cause the destruction of those closest to her.
With the tension at a breaking point and friendships on the line, can the nerd herd come together to stop the spread of Darkness before it’s too late?
I’m about to take everything back I wrote in the previous review. It seems the ninth book was a fluke because this is so bad it makes me want to cry. It was so boring – nothing happens that that is important whatsoever. Never felt so empty after reading a book before. Over half of the book was dreadful to read it felt like a waste of time to be honest. Even though the ending was good it just doesn’t change the fact that the series seem finished.
I truly hate when they give individual chapters to the characters but in this book, it’s even worse than in the previous books. I feel like I lost touch with the main character even! It’s not a good change they made for sure. So much useless information is given in this book. It’s a sad development and it’s difficult to condone.
I truly hope that they’ll end this series soon and with a killer ending! It’s a nice universe the books are built upon almost magical and that’s the only reason I’m still reading these books. The characters used to be the main reason but seeing as they are being ridiculed I can’t help but feel saddened by the development of the story.
