Dark forces are at work at the House of Night and fledging 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" 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 blood lust 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.… (més)

Again, finding the pop culture references a little tedious, as are the parenthetical comments from Zoey. Granted, this is supposed to be from the viewpoint of 16-year-old, but it still gets a little old.

Also, found more mistakes in this one (my annoying editing gene, apparently). First, "unthaw" means "freeze." I'm sure Zoey didn't really "unthaw" her hands.

Second, Loren said that he'd been telling Aphrodite that the younger fledglings need to know about what happens when the Change finally happens. I'm pretty sure he meant Neferet, as Aphrodite has nothing to do with it.

Ok, end of my complaining. I'm of course going to read the whole series..... :) ( )

'It was the most horrible thing I'd ever seen. At first my mind wouldn't even register what it was. Later I thought that must have been some kind of instant defense mechanism. Unfortunately, it didn't last long. I blinked and peered into the darkness. Something looked slick and wet and -'

Plot

Zoey Redbird has only been at The House of Night for two months, but her life is already complicated. After discovering that the High Priestess Neferet has been turning dead fledglings into undead creatures, including Zoey's best friend, Stevie Rae, Zoey must find a way to help Stevie Rae hold on to her humanity, or lose her forever.

As leader of The Dark Daughters, Zoey has the responsibility of choosing somebody to replace Stevie Rae in the circle casting, but her choice causes controversy in the group. With dark forces conspiring inside and outside of the school, how will Zoey cope with juggling her duties?



My thoughts

I always enjoy House of Night books, and this one was no exception. There's just something about these books that really helps me to immerse myself in Zoey's world and become attached to her and other characters. Zoey still isn't used to her new responsibility of leader of the Dark Daughters, and this helps me to connect with her, as she's just an ordinary girl thrown into extraordinary circumstances. One of the things that helps me connect with her world is the use of celebrity's names. Popular and well known actors and actresses will often be referred to in this book, as being Vampyres, allowing the reader to connect with this other world. Vampyres are very much part of society in these books, so it makes sense that some famous actors could be Vampyres.

Once again Zoey has too much going on in her life at one time, with the added responsibility of keeping her problems secret from her friends. Zoey keeps things from them in order to protect them but they don't see it that way, and it causes rifts between them. Zoey needs her friends now more than ever, but unfortunately she's pushing them away with her secrets. I really feel for Zoey in this book; she has the weight of the world on her shoulders, she's trying to find a way to help Stevie Rae, she's got extreme boy troubles, and she's the only one that knows the truth about Neferet. Throw some bad parents into the mix, and it really makes for a difficult time for Zoey.

I will definitely be reading the next book in this series. I thoroughly enjoyed this book; it's unique, interesting and really easy to get into. I've found this whole series to be a refreshing take on Vampires from the start. There are a lot of little things that contribute to these books being so enjoyable, such as the use of celebrities, and the fact that Vampires have a unique connection with cats, in which the cats choose their owner. I found this to be a nice little detail, and it was interesting, since I'd never read about Vampires having a particular affinity with cats. It's small details like that, that make these books really enjoyable and refreshing to read.

I would honestly give this a 2.5 but GR doesn't let you do half star reviews. I'm honestly just disappointed, this story has such wonderful world building and a good plot. That being said, all the good qualities are ruined by poorly written characters, bad pacing, unnecessary and not well done romance, and blatant homophobia/Sexism/Racism/and anti feminist bullshit. I'm not saying more because I can't even cohesively write all that is wrong with this book without deep diving and I will save that for my blog. I don't recommend this series, although I really wish I could. ( )

The dumbed-down teen speak still gets to me, and her string of boyfriends. I know she's young, but she's ridiculous. ( )

"Yep, I have a seriously sucky birthday." I told my cat, Nala. (Okay, truthfully she's not so much my cat as I'm her person. You know how it is with cats, they don't really have owners, they have staff. A fact I mostly try to ignore.)
