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?
The view of a book addict:
I had a little trouble getting into this book, I just didn’t know what happened in the last book anymore. I knew the bigger storyline but not all the small things. I really didn’t know if I was going to like this book.
This book doesn’t have the excitement and tension the other books had, to me it felt more like a slowing down book and prepare for the next one ( at least that’s what I hope ). Although it was nice to read about all the characters and get to know them again, I did miss the big finale of the book. The finale was really cool and nice but I did miss the big fight you usually get at the end of the books.
The verdict of a book addict:
This book is more of a get to know the main characters again if you ask me. If you read the whole series of course you then want to read this one. But to me it isn’t the best book in the series. I hope the next book will be more exciting again!
