Ok… this was the best book in the series. The action began with a very intimate moment where Kalona invades Zoey’s dreams. He’s convinced she is the Cherokee woman created to imprison him. Zoey and her friends are hiding in the tunnels with the red fledglings. Of course Heath shows up and puts Zoey in danger again. A Raven Mocker (the creepy man/bird children of Kalona) attacks her, leaving her close to death. She must drink from Heath again, making their once broken imprint even stronger. So now there’s another love triangle between herself, Heath and Erik. And of course there is also Stark, the kid she kissed in the last book before he “died” and became a red fledgling. He is not without his charms.
The action in this book moved much faster, making this a really fun, guilty pleasure read for me. I can’t wait until Tempted – House of Night Book 6 which comes out in October. Check this out while reading the book http://www.houseofnightseries.com/pages/yearbook.html it is fun!
Some ideas for discussing with teens:
Zoey still has a love triangle, although it is different than before. Discuss which of the guys (if any) are right for Zoey. Who would you rather be with, Erik, Heath or Stark?
Talk about religion. How the worship of the Goddess Nyx is like or unlike their own religion.
What does it mean to be marked? Talk about how tattoos are becoming more common.
