Dark forces are at work at the House of Night and fledgling vampyre Zoey Redbird’s adventures at the school take a mysterious turn. Those who appear to be friends are turning out to be enemies. And oddly enough, sworn enemies are also turning into friends.
So begins the gripping third installment of this “highly addictive series” (Romantic Times), in which Zoey’s mettle will be tested like never before. Her best friend, Stevie Rae, is undead and struggling to maintain a grip on her humanity. Zoey doesn’t have a clue how to help her, but she does know that anything she and Stevie Rae discover must be kept secret from everyone else at the House of Night, where trust has become a rare commodity.
Speaking of rare: Zoey finds herself in the very unexpected and rare position of having three boyfriends. Mix a little bloodlust into the equation and the situation has the potential to spell social disaster.
Just when it seems things couldn’t get any tougher, vampyres start turning up dead. Really dead. It looks like the People of Faith, and Zoey’s horrid step-father in particular, are tired of living side-by-side with vampyres. But, as Zoey and her friends so often find out, how things appear rarely reflects the truth…
Zoey Redbird and her gang are back again in the third installment of the House of Night series. And once again I am not disappointed. This series really is an entertaining read. You continue to get things into the plot that you just don’t see coming. Zoey has so much on her plate but she continues to rise above it. Not without difficulty of course, but she does. Showing just what a strong woman she is.
With boyfriends coming out of her ears, who would have thought? Zoey does find herself in a large bit of drama. As well as finding she is being used. The book all in all is much darker, and sadder than the others. But it is still fantastically written. I truly enjoy how these books are being put together. The writing team of P.C and Kristin Cast is amazing. They continue to put new but believable twists on the myth of the Vampire. And while I often joke and tell my friends its Harry Potter meets Twilight, it truly is much more than that and I look forward to continue reading this series.
