Fledgling vampyre Zoey Redbird has managed to settle in at the House of Night. She’s come to terms with the vast powers the vampyre goddess, Nyx, has given her, and is getting a handle on being the new Leader of the Dark Daughters. Best of all, Zoey finally feels like she belongs–like she really fits in. She actually has a boyfriend…or two. Then the unthinkable happens: Human teenagers are being killed, and all the evidence points to the House of Night. While danger stalks the humans from Zoey’s old life, she begins to realize that the very powers that make her so unique might also threaten those she loves. Then, when she needs her new friends the most, death strikes the House of Night, and Zoey must find the courage to face a betrayal that could break her heart, her soul, and jeopardize the very fabric of her world.
A lot of things going on in the House of Night. The problems were getting intensed. Zoey found a dark secret about Neferet. It had something to do with the death of two boys from Zoey’s former school.
Aphrodite showed her soft side, that she’s not that bad. I think Aphrodite is Zoey’s permanent frenemy. Aphrodite helped Zoey to figure out the dark force which haunted the House of Night.
Zoey also showed her slutty side. She was involved with three guys. How ironic, that she called her sister a ho because she’s a serial dater. Now she becomes one.
Zoey’s friends were blessed with affinity with the four elememts which makes the stronger bond of those fledglings. Neferet said Zoey was lucky to have a strong circle that will help her form a better ‘Dark Daughters’.
I like this one better than the first installment. Some said the book was badly written and it’s oh so shallow. I don’t care. I like this series and I enjoy every part of it.
Can’t wait to read ‘Chosen’.
