This was another really good book in the series. It is fast paced and a lot seems to happen in a short amount of time, but it is still believable. Zoey reminds me of a "school-girl" version of Anita Blake (from Laurell K. Hamilton's series) and I always enjoy a story with a woman/girl in the position of power who is collecting her own harem of men. After all, why should guys get all the rights to the fun stuff without being looked down upon?
Overall, it's a series that I hope will continue for quite awhile and am looking forward to the next book in the series!
Zoey Redbird is back in the fifth installment of the HOUSE OF NIGHT series.
When last we left Zoey, all hell (literally) was breaking loose inside the vampyre school. I am sad to say that her predicament has gone from bad to worse.
Neferet, current High Priestess at the House of Night, has declared war on all human beings. To aid in her quest, Neferet has called forth an ancient evil that cannot be destroyed. Kalona, a fallen angel, has risen from the depths of the earth with Neferet's help. He is an immortal who believes that Zoey is his chosen one - the one who trapped him decades ago inside the confines of the earth.
Zoey's task is great. She and her friends will be forced to use their abilities to help rid the world of Kalona once again, and sabotage Neferet's master plan. By calling the five elements, Zoey, Shaunee, Erin, Stevie Rae, and Damien are declaring a war of their own - to stop Neferet and Kalona, no matter the cost.
The Cast duo has done it again! These ladies appear to be an unstoppable force within the world of YA literature. The energy and integrity of the first four novels has not been diminished in this fifth installment. The characters' personalities are as vibrant as ever, and the story remains engaging and original.
Teenage readers will be drawn to Zoey's everyday, angst-riddled life. Not only does she need to save the world, Zoey needs to solve some major vampyre/human boy drama. These stories are surreal, yet shockingly accurate when it comes to teenagers and their lives.
Here's to hoping for many more HOUSE OF NIGHT novels to follow!
