Synopsis: At the start of Awakened, the pulse-pounding eighth installment of the bestselling House of Night series, Zoey has returned, mostly whole, from the Otherworld to her rightful place as High Priestess at the House of Night. Her friends are just glad to have her back, but after losing her human consort, Heath, will Zoey—or her relationship with her super- hot Warrior, Stark—ever be the same? Stevie Rae is drawn even closer to Rephaim, the Raven Mocker with whom she shares a mysterious and powerful Imprint, but he is a dangerous secret that isolates her from her school, her red fledglings, and even her best friends. When the dark threat of Neferet—who is coming closer and closer to achieving her twisted goal of immortality—and Kalona returns, what will it take to keep the House of Night from being lost forever, and what will one desperate girl do to keep her heart from being irreparably broken?
Zoey Redbird has been through it all, from ordinary teenager to unique Vamyre fledgling. She has loved, lost and battled againtst evil for her friends and family as well as herself. This book keeps you on edge, as with the other book in the series this book has its share of losses, when I read of one of the deaths I cried, but was soon over it as The continuing deceitful ways of Nefret had my blood boiling, and of course there is Stevie Ray and her complicated relationship with the raven mocker. This book is not all gloomy there are reference to True Blood by Kramisha that will have you laughing till you cry, and lets not forget yhe snarky sassy aphrodite she will keep you in tears as well. I enjoyed this book and would recomend the series to anyone who would read it.
