From the back of the book:
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 threate he poses. Kalona is 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 unearths secrets Zoey doesn't want to see and truths she can't face?
On the run and holed up in Tulsa's Prohibition era tunnels, Zoey and her gang must discover a way to deal with somethign that might bring them all down. Meanwhile, Zoey has a few other little problems. The red fledglings have cleaned up well - they've even managed to make the dark, creepy tunnels feel more like home - but are they really as friendly as they seem? On the boyfriend front, Zoey has a chance to make things right with super-hot ex, Erik, but she can't stop thinking about Stark, the archer who died in her arms after one unforgettable night, and she is driven to try to save him from Neferet's sinister influence at all costs. Will anyone survive the power evil has to hide among us?
This book was amazing. I have to say that the House of Night series is quickly becoming one of my favorite Vampire Series.
Zoey had finally pulled it all together or so it seems. Her friends were back to being her friends, and even her relationship with Erick was getting back on track. Until the dreams started. She was having dreams about Kalona, and he kept telling her that she was his chosen mate. Zoey didn't want to be his mate, but what if she was?
When she met a nun who believed that the Goddess Nyx was the Virgin Mary reincorperate, Zoey knew that she had met someone special. So of course when something bad happend, Zoey knew to call on the sister.
This book was fast paced, and neatly tied up some of the story while creating a whole new set of questions. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
