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?
Have you ever been addicted to something? Like watching a movie series that starts out great but as the series progresses, it has it's ups and downs. Yet, you still hang on and you can't seem to let yourself miss an episode? I feel like that with the House of Night series. Sometimes (most of the time) I want to smack Zoe upside the head and yell in her ear - What were you thinking??? She drives me insane...but I still continue to want to read about her. Sometimes I think it is a sick joke....but I will be reading this one as well. Hey, I think once you hit book #4, there is no turning back. Sign me up for the hold list.
Curlypow here: I know what you mean, I kind of feel the same way myself. I still enjoy the series, but it's not at the top of my list anymore. In fact, I still haven't read 'Burned' yet. I guess I'd better get a move on before the new one comes out. At least the story will be fresh in my mind.
