Zoey hasn't been to the House of Night long, and she's already more advanced then most of the other students who are in their fifth year. She must read up on herself to find out what is going on with the changes in her because as of recently, she can no longer trust Neferest, her mentor.
The excitement happens outside of the House of Night as well, two boys from Zoey's old school have been found dead with lacerations and drained of blood. Everyone is pointing fingers at the vampyres. Only Zoey knows the truth, but she doesn't know how to use the information wisely.
Even though Zoey has learned what happens to vampyres or fledgings who drink human blood, they imprint, it's a hard rule to keep when her mentor doesn't even follow the rule.
Zoey only gets more and more powerful as she learns what her powers are, and how to use them. Her and the others in her circle, have all been gifted with their affinity, and you can really see all the characters gaining shape.
Zoey is really coming into understanding who she is, and even though she's a lost teenager, with many boy problems, she seems to be strong and determined to do the right thing. Even though it requires making a few mistakes here and there.
You must read the second book in the House of Night series, to find out who dies, and what's on the other side of death.
I really thought highly for Neferest and thought that she would be an awesome mentor in this series, I don't know what the future of this series, but it doesn't look good for her.
It's a shame, because after all the disappointment Zoey has had lately, she could really use an amazing confidant, like the person she thought Neferest was. With her parents disowning her and walking out on her, she has the school and Grandma and now the school is letting her down.
I really hope that Chosen, the next book in the series isn't so devastatingly hard on Zoey. Every aspect of Zoey's life seems to be out of control!
I give this book
