Summary: (from goodreads) 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… Will Neferet’s true nature be revealed before she succeeds in silencing them all? And will Zoey be able to touch Aurox’s humanity in time to protect him – and everyone – from his own fate? Find out what’s destined in the next thrilling chapter of the House of Night series.
Review: This is the ninth book in the House of Night series and I thought it was a fairly good addition to the series. This book mostly dealt with the emotional fallout from the last book as well as some new problems. The last few chapters were really action packed and exciting and the ending made me really exctied to read the next book. As always the characters were awesome. I really like Zoey and her friends. I felt like this book also contained a lot of character development. Several of the characters in this book are dealing with their own personal problems and I think it added to the story and made the characters seem more real. The one thing I didn't like was how many character perspectives the story was told from. i don't usually mind switching perspectives in a book but this was just to many. Almsot every character had at least one brief section. Although, there were some that added to the stroy i don't think all of them were necessary.
