In the third installment of the House of Night Series, Zoey is learning how to cope with becoming a vampire and a huge amount of new responsibilities. Zoey has become the new leader of the Dark Daughters, is dealing with three love interests and the death of her best friend. She also has made a new ally with her former nemesis, Aphrodite.
Also let us not forget the goddess Nyx has chosen Zoey as the next high priestess which makes her different from the other fledglings. Neferet, who she thought was her mentor, is an evil, back-stabbing witch, who wants to start a war with humans. On top of that her family problems are getting worse than ever and she can’t think straight.
With all this stress it is no wonder she is making bad decisions. Zoey is also trying to save the undead creatures lead by Stevie Rae who is not really dead but not really alive either and struggling to hold on to her humanity. Neferet has a hand in making these creatures and Zoey continues her search to find out her secrets.
If all this isn’t enough teachers are turning up dead, brutally murdered and left on display. Zoey is feeling confused and betrayed and finds comfort from Loren a teacher who has been trying to seduce her. Nothing is what it seems in this book you will have to read to learn more and I can promise you a very fun read.
I really liked this book there was still a lot of review that was unnecessary. These dark novels are not written in a stand alone format you need to start from the first book. I liked the characters more in this book especially Stevie Rae and Aphrodite. Zoey starts to grow as a person in this book despite her personal issues and bad decisions.
I give this book 4.5 out of 5 stars, because I have very few complaints and I absolutely was addicted to this story at this point.
