About this audiobook

"My love, speak to me. Tell me everything." Neferet went to Kalona, kneeling before him, stroking the soft, dark wings that unfurled loosely around the immortal.
"What would you have me say?" He didn't meet her eyes.
"Zoey lives." Neferet's voice was flat, cold, lifeless.
"She does."
"Then you owe me the subservience of your immortal soul." She started to walk away from him.
"Where are you going? What will happen next?"
"It is quite simple. I will ensure Zoey is drawn back to Oklahoma. There, on my own terms, I will complete the task you failed."

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 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?

In the pulse-pounding 8th book in the bestselling House of Night series, how far will the bonds of friendship stretch and how strong are the ties that bind one girl's heart?

A Macmillan Audio production.

    There are chunks of the book missing from this recording, Pages and pages just not read.

    Just because a book targets a Young Adult audience doesn't justify it being poorly written. Especially when the books young readers imbibe can have such a lasting impact on their view of the world. Vampires, werewolves and supernatural creatures are hot right now. My daughter is asking to read them. I bought several YA books in this genre to preview before adding them to my bookshelf. This book will not be staying in my house.My expectations coming into this book were modest. I anticipated a kind of sex-sanitized Harlequin Romance with blood suckers and magical creatures. I enjoyed watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel with Daughter #1 in all of its badly-acted, campy awfulness because many episodes touched upon a social issue that was relevant to my kid. Read (or watch) what your kids are reading and all of a sudden that 30-year difference in your ages disappears and you are speaking the same language. In this book, however, the heroines/villains were all so shallow that I just wanted to smack them. The plot was thin. The writing bad. The whole thing reminded me of this Mary Sue book I co-wrote with a friend in the 9th grade in a loose-leaf notebook.I will keep reading ... searching for a suitable YA vampire series for my kid to read to sit besides the three 'Hunger Games' books and all our legacy Lord of the Rings and other fantasy books. This book, however, is going into the 'donate' bin as soon as I hit 'save' on this review. My YA daughter deserves more nourishing fare, and I will keep searching for it until I find that magical YA vampire/werewolf series that can bridge the gap and help us speak whatever middle-earth language young people speak these days

    Culminations on lots of things and some things begun. I just read the first eight books in order in about a week, and I'm ready for the next one. I like the direction things are going with Stevie Rae and Rephaim, I'm not so keen on the foreshadowing with Zoey/Stark. I am a bit curious about what role Erik will play, and I don't think we can count Kalona out any more than we can count Neferet out.

    While I was reading this book I couldn’t stop thinking about other things. I don’t know if I’m getting sick of this series or if this book just wasn’t as good as some of the others. It seemed to be very slow with not a lot happening. I didn’t get pulled in like I have before with these books and I didn’t find it at all interesting until the last few chapters.It did have it’s good moments, but like I said, they were near the end and by that point it was a little late. I almost gave up on this book. There were also some things that made me angry and I spent a lot of the time rolling my eyes at the characters.In the end, I will probably still buy the next book, Destined, and keep going with this series until the end. I just hope it gets better.

    Finally everything turn back at the beginning, there are the goods and the evils, Neferet against Zoey, still waiting for something new...
  • Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
    I seriously love this series and the latest did not disappoint. I'm loving and hating the cliffhanger at the end. I will say that I was surprised by a lot of the book, more surprised than I've been in a long time when it comes to a plotline.
