When friends stop trusting each other, Darkness is there to fan the flames…. Things have turned black at the House of Night. Zoey Redbird’s soul has shattered. With everything she’s ever stood for falling apart, and a broken heart making her want to stay in the Otherworld forever, Zoey’s fading fast. It’s seeming more and more doubtful that she will be able pull herself back together in time to rejoin her friends and set the world to rights. As the only living person who can reach her, Stark must find a way to get to her.  But how?  He will have to die to do so, the Vampyre High Council stipulates.  And then Zoey will give up for sure. There are only 7 days left…  Enter  BFF Stevie Rae.  She wants to help Z but she has massive problems of her own.  The rogue Red Fledglings are acting up, and this time not even Stevie Rae can protect them from the consequences.  Her kinda boyfriend, Dallas, is sweet but too nosy for his own good.  The truth is, Stevie Rae’s hiding a secret that might be the key to getting Zoey home but also threatens to explode her whole world. In the middle of the whole mess is Aphrodite: ex-Fledgling, trust-fund baby, total hag from Hell (and proud of it).  She’s always been blessed (if you could call it that) with visions that can reveal the future, but now it seems Nyx has decided to speak through her with the goddess’s own voice, whether she wants it or not.  Aphrodite’s loyalty can swing a lot of different ways, but right now Zoey’s fate hangs in the balance. Three girls… playing with fire… if they don’t watch out, everyone will get Burned.

My ThoughtsGreen swirlsThis series has been off and on for me throughout.  This one though so far is my favourite.  I thought the last one (Tempted) was but nope this one is.  I gotta say for a heroin in her own book Zoey gets on my last nerve.   I think she’s the character that I like the least and she’s the star of the books.  Go figure.   My favourite characters are Aphrodite, Stark and Stevie Rae… and now Rephaim.  I hope we learn more about where that relationship is going between him and Stevie Rae.

Also, on a side note, I miss Erik!  I personally thought he was a great character and he just got kicked to the curb and there he sits.  He’s barely mentioned anymore so I really hope he comes back into the picture in future books.  I mean sure queen Z had her issues with him but they were mostly her fault in my opinion.  She hurt him and yet he was supposed to just grow up about it?  Would you??  Not likely.  He got a bad rep and undeserving of it.  I hope he finds happiness and that it bothers Z just a little!  Mind you she won’t care because she’s in love with someone else…. well, at least until someone else new comes along and she’ll want him too.  I don’t like her!  Can ya tell??

Overall, I loved it.  Best one yet.
Green swirls Awesome I loved it
