Zoey and her circle are at the Redbird farm
to recreate events magically, in order to find out how her mother died. After the ritual,
during which Dragon is killed, they see the truth of how her mother was killed. Thantos,
the High Priestess, is with them and finally sees Nerferat did it as she serves the
Darkness now. She lets the Vampyr High Council know the truth, so they can remove her from
Nerferat has sacrificed Dragons cat, Shadowfax, for a spell to break
Zoeys circle. Setting the schools barn on fire as a distraction, she makes her
escape. Luckily none of the horses are harmed, and the Horse Mistress recognises the new
stable hand as her reincarnated true love and saves his life. As Nerferats evil
plans grow, the embers of House of Night must work together to d3efeat the Darkness, even
trusting former enemies like Kalona.
I keep reading this series as I really like the concept of a vampire
school and the interesting mythology and hope the stories will get better. The books
dont hold my interest though, the characters dont seem to grow and there are
so many pop culture references its painful. A character describing an event as
humungous? And when something bad happens the first response is to argue about whose fault
it is. You want to tell them to grow up.
Teens that are fans of this series should like this book but if
youre not a fan dont bother reading it.
