House of Night: Awakened by P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast

Exonerated by the Vampyre High Council and returned to her position of High Priestess at Tulsa’s House of Night, Neferet has sworn vengeance on Zoey. Dominion over her immortal consort Kalona is only one of the weapons she plans to use against Z.

But Zoey has found sanctuary on the Isle of Skye and is being groomed by Queen Sgiach to take over for her there. Being Queen would be cool, wouldn’t it? Why should she return to Tulsa? After losing her human consort, Heath, she will never be the same – and her relationship with her super-hot-warrior, Stark, may never be the same either…

And what about Stevie Rae and Rephaim? The Raven Mocker refuses to be used against Stevie Rae, but what choice does he have when no one in the entire world, including Zoey, would be okay with their relationship? Does he betray his father or his heart?


Hey people what's up! As you can [probably] tell from my greeting I'm in a very chipper mood this Sunday evening (and I'm extra wordy too). Today's book House of Night: Awakened took me a while to get over and another week or so to bring myself to review. Don't worry I won't go into details but I'll say this for those of you HoN fans who finihed Awakened you can probably guess why I was a bit depressed after reading this book. A bit dramatic I know, but what can I say.

Depression aside, I really enjoyed this book — I had a slight panic attack after reading this book because I thought the next book was the last and the events from this book made it unlikely that the Cast duo would neatly wrap up the story. However, I was gladly mistaken there will be 12 books in the series making it 4 book left. Anyway, where was I? I really liked this book; a lot of things were brought to light, but then we (readers, authors, characters, and plot) took 2 maybe 4 steps back and trip over a rock. Just kidding about the rock part, however, it did feel as if the amount of progress Zoey and company made to keep darkness and evil at bay Neferet swooped in and screwed it all up. I'm not complaining because it makes for a good read—except when characters get hurt.

My conclusion? Awakened lived up to it's 8 7 predecessors and delivered a great plot, delicious drama and a twisted ending. Simply put, it was very entertaining and even though certain events made me cry It was worth reading. Now It's your turn.

PS.: Here's another funny little story I forgot this book was out when I came across it.
