This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
What if the hottest guy in the world was hiding a nameless evil, and all he wanted was you? At the start of this heart-pounding new installment of the bestselling House of Night series, Zoey’s friends have her back again and Stevie Rae and the red fledglings aren’t Neferet’s secrets any longer. But an unexpected danger has emerged. Neferet guards her powerful new consort, Kalona, and no one at the House of Night seems to understand the threat he poses. Kalona looks gorgeous, and he has the House of Night under his spell. A past life holds the key to breaking his rapidly spreading influence, but what if this past life shows Zoey secrets she doesn’t want to hear and truths she can’t face?
Half the book takes place in one place and the last another. It makes it cool and interesting to see the changes of the characters going from one place to another. This was actually an interesting read. A new chapter has begun this time it’s a different foe but at the same time, we still follow the original plot from the beginning.
Zoey is developing and becoming more mature. I’m a fan of the changes she and the others are going through. It’s easy to see the authors has thought hard about the characters. Since we know the places they are living, it leaves more room to describe other important things.
What first caught my attention was the description of everything. Moreover, they’ve stayed true to that ever since. We know how every little feather moves in the wind and how every little scratch sounds like because it’s as if we are there.
It’s still a teen vampire story but I like how it’s becoming more serious, more gothic in a way. It truly suits the story. As its readers grow older so does the bellowed characters and it’s easy to feel the changes they go through. I for one think it’s about time our heroine start to kick some ass.
If you thought about quitting I’d say, continue! This arc seems like it could be even better than the introduction arc aka the first four books.
