Gr 10 Up-This story picks up where Untamed (St. Martin's, 2008) ends. Priestess Zoey and her friends must hide in the tunnels cozied and cleaned up by Aphrodite and the now-stable Red Fledglings while Darius ensures that Stevie Rae heals from the arrow wound in her chest. With the increasingly dark Neferet and immortal, fallen Kalona ruling the House of Night, Zoey deems that their vampyre finishing school is unsafe for their return, yet she cannot escape Kalona when he invades her dream, claiming her as his own. The close proximity of the tunnels presents the perfect opportunity for Zoey and Erik to reconcile. Yet once again, love gets complicated when Heath returns and Erik's jealousy drives Zoey aboveground where-in the light of day amid a raging ice storm-one of Kalona's Raven Mockers nearly kills her as she saves Heath from its attack. Forced to heal under the close proximity of adult vampyres, Zoey returns to the House of Night with a small group of her most useful and necessary friends. With their help, the prophetic poems of Red Fledgling, Kramisha, and a few unexpected characters, Zoey must find a way to expel Kalona and Neferet from the House of Night. The returning cast of characters, combined with the story's multilayered twists and turns, will not disappoint fans of the series.-Adrienne L.
