The good news: Zoey’s friends have her back again and Stevie Rae and the red fledglings aren’t Neferet’s secrets any longer. The bad news: Ancient evil with the face of an angel has been let loose – that and various other nasties (whose faces aren’t so angelic). Grandma Redbird is in trouble. Heath is in trouble. The House of Night is in trouble. Okay, let’s face it – Zoey’s whole world is in trouble! But when the trouble comes from a being who appears to be beauty personified, will the world believe it? Especially when only a teenager and a group of misfits are the only ones who really understand the danger he brings. Will Zoey have the strength and wisdom to reveal the truth? Especially when, in the House of Night, the truth is often hard to come by…
So this is the 5th book in the House of Night Series, hmmh... where do I begin? I can say that it kept me somewhat interested, but the plot felt so déjà vuish if you know what I mean (been there done that, what’s new!). “Gosh this is a hard one!” I finally see why I kept putting this book off. I told myself “Look, you’ve had this book on Currently Reading forever, get it over with and read it already.” The writing and the dialogue was so irregular from the first few books, I had to do a double take on the cover to make sure this was by the same authors. I don’t know how many times I rolled my eyes while reading this book, it was frustrating. I mean really, “Did she say that?” or “No! She did not do that…….AGAIN!” And when it finally gets interesting….Hold for it…… “Let’s form a circle and sing Kumbaya and everything will be ok.” THE END! Pleeeeease!
I’m really lost for words on this one or I could take a note from the book Ohmigod….Ohmigod….Ohmigod…. I was disappointed! Well, “that’s all she wrote.”
