Dark forces are at work at the House of Night and fledgling vampyre Zoey Redbird's adventures at the school take a mysterious turn. Those who appear to be friends are turning out to be enemies. And oddly enough, sworn enemies are also turning into friends. So begins the gripping third installment of this “highly addictive series” (Romantic Times), in which Zoey's mettle will be tested like never before. Her best friend, Stevie Rae, is undead and struggling to maintain a grip on her humanity. Zoey doesn't have a clue how to help her, but she does know that anything she and Stevie Rae discover must be kept secret from everyone else at the House of Night, where trust has become a rare commodity. Speaking of rare: Zoey finds herself in the very unexpected and rare position of having three boyfriends. Mix a little bloodlust into the equation and the situation has the potential to spell social disaster. Just when it seems things couldn't get any tougher, vampyres start turning up dead. Really dead. It looks like the People of Faith, and Zoey's horrid step-father in particular, are tired of living side-by-side with vampyres. But, as Zoey and her friends so often find out, how things appear rarely reflects the truth…


This was better than Marked, but not quite as good as Chosen. I loved it, though. I can't wait to read Untamed (patiently waiting for it from the library).

I read this in one sitting... I just could NOT put it down. Definitely a good read!

Once again, the repetition of things that happened in the past books gets to be annoying, but you learn to ignore it.

I'm really in love with the style of writing, it's very informal... as though Zoey is telling her story directly to you.

Zoey has really developed as a character after reading this book, and I can't wait to learn more about her and the other characters. Once again, this one had me laughing & crying!
