This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
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 her immortal consort 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?
This was actually funny in a way. I’ve always been a fan of Neferet. She really is a terrific villain. I had fun reading her chapters in this book. I love how annoyed and wronged she seemed all the time. Really, a special character and it’s sad that she had to be on the opposite site of our little group of friends. She tickled me and it was difficult to keep small laughs from leaving my mouth at times.
Now the book continued the whole chapters dedicated to the individual characters and I’m not sure if I’m a fan. It worked really well in the previous one due to the absence of Zoey for the most part.
The characters are developing but few of them not for the better. I’m starting to get a little annoyed with some of the comments and the swearing. I really want the intrigues between the Groups to be over for good, but there’s so many secrets to keep track off and who is lying to whom. Why can’t they just get along and fight their common enemy before they destroy everything the world has to offer? Isn’t that a little more necessary than to argue who loves who etc.
Overall, the level has dropped a bit but it’s still worth a read.
