This one picks up not far where Marked left off. Zoey is now in charge of the Daughters of Darkness. Aphrodite is now old news and her 'evil' ways are done. Even Neferet has said that the Goddess has taken away Aphrodite's gift of seeing the future... or has she? Human Teenagers that Zoey used to know are dying and Aphrodite has a vision that ends up saving Zoey's grandmama. So if Aphrodite still has her gift... why would Neferet lie? What's really going on in the House of Night? Who can Zoey trust? Not only is Zoey dealing with all that but her parents aren't helping anything at all... then something really happens that will shake Zoey up for sure. Darkness isn't always evil and light isn't always good.

I can be the first one to admit that these aren't the best books out there. While I think there are some great things about this series, I can also say there are some things that could be done better. Much better. My biggest gripe with this series is just how whiny all the characters are. I know that some people have said that this is how teenagers are... and while that is true. Some teenagers can be whiney. Not every single freaking teenager is that way. I wasn't that way. So that being said, I like the writing style. It's fun and fast to read. It's an engaging story. Also, I'm vampire trash so.... anything with vampires, I may just be biased about. Crap, let's just be honest, I've very biased when it comes to vampire novels. I just love it all so much.

I like how witchcraft plays a part in this novel. As a Pagan, this is just so cool to me. I love how the ones we think maybe 'evil' characters, aren't always evil. Good isn't always good. There can be this grey area and I feel like this mirrors the real world greatly.

I started this series back when only the first three or four were out and I never finished it. So this is a reread so I can finally finish this series and jump into Loved.
