Zoey is finally home where she belongs, safe with her Guardian Warrior, Stark, by her side, and preparing to face off against Neferet—which would be a whole lot easier if the High Counsel saw the ex-High Priestess for what she really is. Kalona has released his hold on Rephaim, and, through Nyx’s gift of a human form, Rephaim and Stevie Rae are finally able to be together—if he can truly walk the path of the Goddess and stay free of his father’s shadow...
But there are new forces at work at the House of Night. An influx of humans, including Lenobia’s handsome horse whisperer, threatens their precarious stability. And then there’s the mysterious Aurox, a jaw-droppingly gorgeous teen boy who is actually more—or possibly less—than human. Only Neferet knows he was created to be her greatest weapon. But Zoey can sense the part of his soul that remains human, the compassion that wars with his Dark calling. And there’s something strangely familiar about him...
My Review: So Heath is coming back and Zoey finds a new power that can bring people back from the dead. In this book. Damien and the Twins have returned to join Zoey after their break. Neferet has increased in her darkness level. She has began to send her darkness over the House of Night school. Oh and did you know Neferet is on her own? Well she is (: No more Kalona or Raven Mockers to help her. Kalona has instead pledged to be Thanatos' warrior. Its also hard to read that the 'twins" are no longer twins anymore. One thing I hadnt expected was that Dragon would die, but at least he can be with his wife Anastasia again.
