Well, I really love this series and I have enjoyed all of the books. This book is no exception. It still shocks me how Zoey can have all these guys chasing after her and it always seems to sound like a bad thing. In my opinion a bunch of hot guys chasing after me could never be a bad thing.. ha. I love all of the characters in this series and they are all developed so well in P.C and Kristin's writing that you feel like you know all of them. And the world of the vampyres to me in this novel seems really believable somehow. The only issue I have with this series and it is the same issue that I have with many series is that a lot of the books seem like filler books that end with a huge cliffhanger. They don't really seem to be stand alone books at all so you always have to go back and at least read then end of the last book to remember what happened. Well, if you read as many other books as I do, you generally get some mixed up occassionally. I wish it was more like Harry Potter or Twilight where you kind of have to read all of the books to get the whole story line but you at least feel somewhat content with the end of the book and not immediately feel like it just ends. I don't know could just be my opinion though. Another good book from the Casts'. Unfortunately we have to wait until April of next year for the next installment.
I think the most interesting character was Rephaim. The normal cast of characters: Zoey and Stevie Rae, both kept having repetitive thoughts about doing one thing but not wanting to do it at the same time, or explaining too much of what we already know. That is how much of the unnecessary parts passed. I didn't feel greatly attached to any of the characters. I did like that summaries of the previous books weren't included in this one, so I had to try to remember what I had read so long ago.
I was not impressed that Erik was seen as the bad guy although it was Zoey who was hurting his feelings by dealing with so many guys at the same time she was going out with him. Zoey is seen as young, and even her grandma states that she has a lot of time to choose one guy, thus it is alright to have many guys on the side.
Kalona is not dead. He still wants Zoey and he visits her in her dreams. Erik could tell by the way Kalona looked at Zoey before that he felt something for her. Erik is annoyed that she isn't giving him much attention even though they are dating. Zoey doesn't really understand why she is together with him, and feels that Erik wants to control her because he doesn't want her being so close to other guys, so she breaks up with him.
Stark had sworn himself to Zoey to be her warrior, but she is only learning what it means to have a warrior. A warrior can feel what is going on in the mind of the person they are protecting, which is good and bad at the same time.Read more ›
Zoey and the circle have rid the House of Night of Neferet, Kalona, and his evil children, the Raven Mockers, but they have decimated their beloved home. The young fledglings are left to pick up the pieces that Neferet and Kalona left behind.
Zoey, Stevie Rae, and the rest of the gang use their affinities to help strengthen the kids who were hurt during the battle. Zoey also needs some help herself. She still has all sorts of guy problems (namely, Erik, Heath, and now Stark, who has sworn his Warrior's Oath to Zoey), and she is still coming to terms with the fact that she is the reincarnation of the ancient Cherokee woman, A-Ya.
Through all of this, Zoey manages to keep her cool, and decides that she must face Neferet and Kalona on their own turf. Zoey and the circle head to Italy to stand before the Vampyre High Council, and hopefully, stop Neferet and her evil plan once and for all.
Thank goodness for the HOUSE OF NIGHT series! I had missed the witty banter between Zoey and her friends!
Relationships and personalities are starting to shift in this sixth novel. The characters are growing and developing new traits, or losing them, depending on the situation.
The Cast ladies are still going strong, and have already unveiled the seventh title in the series, BURNED, due out in April of 2010.

Zoey, her friends, the red vampyre, and the nuns just defeated the immortal Kalona, and their old High Priestess. Now her gang is ready to plan their next move. This involves going back into the House of Nights. Yet before they can go, they have a few loss ends to tie up. Stevie Rae met a new “friend” that she sworn not to tell anyone about. But having so many secrets kills Stevie Rae so she must make a decision to tell one of them, but which one shall she pick? Zoey is back to her three man triangle, Stark her warrior, Heath her high school sweetheart, or Erik the man she thought she loved, but has become increasingly possessive and demanding. And what about Kalona? He wants her so bad as he believe they are meant to be. After he shows her pieces of his past, will she be able to stand up to him when the times come. Meanwhile Kalona and Neferet are taking over the vampyre world and it is up to Zoey and her fledgling and human friends to put a stop to it.
This is the sixth of twelve books in the series. As this is a half-way point I’ll say the series is not that bad yet. The characters the authors introduce in the first book are still there in a way, and the main plot has started in book two. This plot it seemed is very dried out and has been running for far too long.Read more ›
