My rating: 5 of 5 stars
My god…this book, this book, this book…hell, this world basically….I missed it so much when I picked it up. This book made me have so many feels, from the death of someone to Neferet being a bitch, and the Kalona and Rephaim plan to betray Neferet because they realize that Neferet never had any control over him at all….
But let’s talk about Jack’s death-the death that just…just hurts so much. The boy was innocent, waiting on Zoey to come home that he made a whole bunch of origamis for her, and he wanted to sing the Glee version of Defying Gravity, but now he can’t since Neferet used him as a bloody sacrifice to Darkness. And Damien…I felt sorry for Damien when he found the body, and Stevie Rae knew that Neferet did it, but didn’t know how. Thus the reason why Zoey came back from the Isle of Skye, though she didn’t want to because of her conscience (I believe) along with her Warrior and Guardian Stark (in which I ship them 110%).
And the relationship between Rephaim and Stevie Rae, though how secret it can be, came out at Jack’s funeral (thanks Neferet for coming in and pretending that she forgive her and all that jazz-which were *Kathy Bates voice* LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIESSSSSSSSSSSS) but then when Nyx showed up after she tried to out Zoey and told Damien that Jack was happy in her gardens and that he’ll see her again, turning Rephaim into a raven by day and a boy by night, giving Dragon the choice to forgive Rephaim for the death of his love Anastasia, ant giving Neferet a chance to come back to the right path of the Goddess (but honestly, I wish she didn’t do it because she didn’t do it).
And then the death of Zoey’s mother, Linda…I shed some tears when I read that death, because once again, it was uncalled for, Neferet wanted to kill Zoey’s grandmother after she basically took over House of Night again, and all because she wanted a vessel….which had Heath’s soul in it, making him reincarnated in the vessel now called Aurox (which is the most stupidest name I’ve ever heard).
I really enjoyed this book and I want to get the rest of the books and read more because I honestly missed this world so much.
