At last, Zoey has what she wanted: the truth is out. Neferet’s evil has been exposed, and the High Council is no longer on her side — but she’s far from done wreaking havoc in the vampyre world. First, a mysterious fire ravages the stables. Then, Neferet makes a devastating move that will test them all.
With the seeds of distrust sown and Darkness breeding chaos at the House of Night, everyone must band together — but that’s proving to be more difficult than ever before. The twins are barely speaking and the House of Night’s former enemy, Kalona, has now become their warrior, pushing their trust to the limit. To top it off, Zoey is pretty darn sure she might be losing her mind. She saw something when she looked at Aurox through the Seer Stone that she can hardly explain to herself, let alone her friends. Is it possible that Heath has come back in a different form? Is that why Zoey’s so intrigued by Aurox, when it’s so obvious that he’s dangerous? And who would believe her if she told them? Zoey knows that following her instinct about Aurox might be just what they need to defeat evil . . . but if she’s wrong, it could cause the destruction of those closest to her.
With the tension at a breaking point and friendships on the line, can the nerd herd come together to stop the spread of Darkness before it’s too late?
Zoey and her gang just can not seem to catch a break on anything ever. Hidden is a really well written book and I enjoyed the action a great deal. While it seems Zoey and her group can not catch a break the flow and ebb of this one is really good. We spend a little bit more time getting to know some of the inner workings and more on the relationships then just battling evil. For me I really enjoyed that. I can say I did not like where Erin is going but of course it seems there has to be a split and a way of Shaunee to grow as well. Shaylin is a new and very curious character I can not wait to get to know her more and as if the cast wasn’t big enough Erebus actually shows up a few times and you know what he may be the “good one” but I don’t like him. Nope sure don’t.
I think any fan of this series is going to dig into the meat of this one. Light really takes a good stroke towards coming out on top against the evil Darkness that is Neferet. If only she would learn to leave Zoey her friends and Grandma alone!
