Review: .C. Cast has gone way beyond the talent she has shown in previous books in her writing of the most recent installment of the House of Night series. The multiple perspectives, introduced in the 6th book worked masterfully in telling this book's unique story. The way that the storyline is told is both surprising as it is breathtaking. There was a point in this book where P.C. Cast tricked me and I absolutely loved it! When the realization hit, I was in awe of how well written the revelation was. And satisfyingly enough the reader will be just as challenged as the characters are while reading this book. As a friend once put it, "these books are like snacks." With that comparison, this book is not a snack the way the others are, and it isn't a full course meal either. Instead, it sits the reader down and shows them how to cook. But lets go back to the first 6 books. Because without them, this book wouldn't be nearly as pointed. During the House of Night series, the reader feels a need and demand that the characters learn, make decisions, and grow. Books 1 through 6 hasn't really shown us the volume to which these characters can change. While we know that they have, we haven't ever been as intimate with the characters until this 7th book, where we are forced to look at these multi-dimensional characters and acknowledge the depth of them. Heath, Zoey, Aphrodite, Darius, Stevie-Rae, Rephaim, Stark and the big baddies (Neferet and Kalona) are the main focus and while fans of the Twins and Damien and Jack might be disappointed, the focus on the characters listed is key to this book. What's marvelous about that, though is not all characters are developed in the present, not all are even truly in the book, but each and every character mentioned takes on more meaning and becomes so much more clear than in previous books. Now I'm a huge Stark fan and by the end of this book I don't see how anyone couldn't be, but that's not where I think this review should focus. What's more important is that I'm not a huge Zoey fan. I'm not a huge Heath fan. But by the end of this book I was. Zoey's character changes so much that the reader may expect whiplash yet the story is crafted so that her extraordinary progresses reads naturally. Heath's character is developed simply by reviewing the constants in his relations with everyone in the book. It does not serve to make any reader feel stupid, but rather does cause a reader to stop and think about how Heath really doesn't change so much as our understanding of him did. Stark. Where to even begin. We learn his history, his future and glimpse into his mind in the present all at once while somehow carrying his load for him. His role in this book is so well written and so well played that this character really shines. Those of you interested in Stevie-Rae and the inevitable dilemma of Rephaim will not be disappointed by how this story-line, so loosely and tightly mingled with Zoey's is developed and expressed. And that firecracker Aphrodite? If you think she had a strong voice in all of the rest of the books, her voice is even stronger, if that can even be conceived, in this one. Another spin in the story line helps develop her character in remarkable ways as well. Here are the most important themes of the book: The act of wishing vs. doing, disguise, the power of mistakes, the power that everyone has inside of us born out of the path we choose, and ultimately, the power not so much of free will but more of choice. Every choice in this book counts

Review: I started this series late last year and completely gave up before this book. Now some time has passed I've picked it up again and I have to say that this book was a definate improvement on the previous instalment in the series. House of Night is a bit of a guilty pleasure. There is so much of it that is a little bit cringy but you are drawn in all the same. This book is definately Stevie Rae's book. She is developed much more as a character and gets the most of the screen time in this story. I actually liked having the break ware from Zoey because she can bug me at times. For me the character who really stood out in this is aphrodite. I rarely go from hating a character so strongly to loving them but I actually think she is awesome and she is probably the reason why I will now keep following the series. I love that she is really bitchy but it always seems to get the job and pull the rest of the characters together as a few of them have no back bone whatsoever. Some of the scenes were brilliant. The action scenes in this series are always really good and there were quite a few steamy scenes with different characters that popped up.It just sometimes feels like there is a lot of padding stuffed in at times. Don't get me wrong. I didn't love the book. The Casts still insist on using the F word almost every single sentence and have made up some lovely new words of their own which are equally as offensive. They still have what could be considered appalling offensive racial stereotypes used throughout. The scottish character was so typically Scottish it was cringy but I have now come to the point when it is actually funny when all these stereotypical characters pop up. I am not interested to see what awakened holds for us now that Zoey has returned. I am hoping against hope that she is a bit stronger now and that she doesn't utter the words brown pop or bullypoopy but I'm not holding my breath.
