P.C. Cast-Awakened (House of Night #8)

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?

**** (4 stars)
Not my favorite of the series, but still a good one. Zoey and her circle face another battle with Neferet while facing loss and hardship. This book takes a very hard road in the series, and you may not like all the events that happen, but they are (I'm sure) crucial to the series as a whole. Choices are made, sides are aligned, and Neferet can not turn back from her path now. Zoey and Stark are a strong team now, and all your questions about Stevie Rae and Rephaim are answered. As always, P.C. Cast leaves us circling the mailbox impatiently waiting for the next book. I can't wait to see what happens next.....
