Product Description from ‘’

So…you’d think after banishing an immortal being and a fallen High Priestess, saving Stark’s life, biting Heath, getting a headache from Erik, and almost dying, Zoey Redbird would catch a break. Sadly, a break is not in the House of Night school forecast for the High Priestess in training and her gang. Juggling three guys is anything but a stress reliever, especially when one of them is a sexy Warrior who is so into protecting Zoey that he can sense her emotions. Speaking of stress, the dark force lurking in the tunnels under the Tulsa Depot is spreading, and Zoey is beginning to believe Stevie Rae could be responsible for a lot more than a group of misfit red fledglings. Aphrodite’s visions warn Zoey to stay away from Kalona and his dark allure, but they also show that it is Zoey who has the power to stop the evil immortal. Soon it becomes obvious that Zoey has no choice: if she doesn’t go to Kalona he will exact a fiery vengeance on those closest to her. Will Zoey have the courage to chance losing her life, her heart, and her soul?


First, I would just like to say that I am an avid reader of P.C Cast and her daughter Kristin’s series House of Night. I couldn’t get enough of Zoey’s life at The House of Night school as a vampire fledging for the first four books, but I felt that by the fifth book things should have changed a little. I was disappointed that Zoey was still choosing between three (or maybe four) popular, hot boys who all were dedicated to her even though she “couldn’t” choose between them. Also despite the hardships that Zoey and her friends go through in the fifth novel, I couldn’t shake my annoyance with Zoey’s character. As I was reading through this installment, I had to force myself to get through some parts which I thought were slow and annoying, I mean, I do like this series but I can only take some many “oh my goddesses” and continuous references to teenage slangs that I felt the Cast’s over emphasized the teenage stereotypes to a point that it was annoying to read at times.

Having said that, I will continue to read the rest of the series. The book ended in another cliffhanger, which has me anxiously waiting the next installment. The plot was alright, but I felt it really picked up the last 20 pages.
