*Review contains spoilers of the previous books in the series.*
Summary: The series continues right where it left off with Zoey Redbird and her friends fighting darkness. The Vampyre High Council finally knows about Neferet, but as always, more issues are still to come.
Review: The second half of this novel was really good, but the first half just seemed more of the same old same old.
Although I was originally a huge fan of the House of Night series, with every new book my interest seems to drift farther and farther away. I don’t want to be a drag, I am still interested. I still want to find out the conclusion of this series, and Stark and Grandma are my favorite characters that I can’t get enough of. There is just so much repetitiveness.
No offense to the cute, nice, human, Health, but I have had enough. Stark and Zoey just need to be together and be happy. I really don’t want to see anymore love triangle drama. I also am starting to get annoyed with Neferet. It took 10 books before the High Council found out the truth, and yet I feel like she isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. I’m kind of ready for the big battle... that better happen.
I will say that there are actually two twists in this novel and they are pretty good. They made me more excited about the novel and I read the last 100 pages of the book like there was no tomorrow. On the other hand, everything else I could predict, like I said, it’s somewhat repetitive.
Another good aspect of this book is the character development of Zoey. She finally seems to grow and start to become an adult. I know she has had mature moments before, but she still, for the most part, acted like a child, not someone the Goddess has gifted. I know she is just a teenager, but with everything she has been through one would think that she would be a little more mature, and we finally get to see that in this novel.
If you like the series, you might as well keep reading it, you have lasted this long already and the ending alone will be worth it. If you have yet to read any books in this series, be warned. The series starts off really good, but the authors are really starting to drag this out. Even the covers have gotten boring.
Rating: 3/5 BUY Hidden
