This is my review of Awakened By P.C and Kristin Cast and this is book 8 of the House Of Night Series.
Description: 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?
Review: This is the eighth book of the House Of Night series and i really like this series but after reading this i think the current story line has been going on to long and it needs to hurry up an be summed up. Although i did like this book, the beginning was really slow and it only began to be fast paced nearer the end which was quite disappointing but the end was good and does make you want to continue reading the series. I found that this book was more focused on Stevie Rae and Rephaim, then the gang battling evil.
This book starts just where burned left off, Zoey and Kalona are back from the other world. Neferet finally finds out that Kalona failed his mission therefore she punishes him or that's what she thinks. Zoey finds peace at Isle Of Skye and she sees a good future if she stays there but nothing can ever stay peaceful in Zoey's life for a few minutes a terrible tragedy drags her and Stark back to Tulsa and her House Of Night. On arrival she finds Neferet has returned and the council seemed to have forgiven her but only the gang see how evil she really is. Stevie Rae and Rephaim have to come to terms with how they feel about each other and this i find is the strongest part of the book.
If you haven't read this series i recommend it but don't get put of by how the first book seems to target young teenagers because as the series and characters progress the books mature and are pretty much written from a mature young adults P.O.V instead of the young girl we met in Marked. Altogether i was disappointed with this book but it was still good and i will be continuing the series.
