Zoey Redbird's first-person adventures take on added danger and importance in the latest House of Night release. Forced by circumstance to grow up quickly, Zoey's emotional and spiritual evolution is fascinating. The Cast duo breathes life and vibrancy into the characters and makes each one an integral part of the saga. Awesome and unforgettable
All hell broke loose when the fallen angel Kalona was released from his earthly prison by the corrupted priestess Neferet. Fleeing into underground tunnels that house the red-vampyre fledglings, Zoey and her friends take refuge. But when she's gravely wounded in a battle against a Raven-Mocker, her only hope is to return to the House of Night for healing.
Face to face with seductive evil, Zoey must fight her attraction to Kalona, who believes that she's the reincarnation of the woman created to love him. With feelings for three different boys, the last thing Zoey needs is more relationship issues. Not to mention that Neferet, who considers Kalona hers, is morphing into something terrifyingly evil.
