Dark forces are at work at the House of Night and fledgling vampyre Zoey Redbird’s adventures at the school take a mysterious turn. Those who appear to be friends are turning out to be enemies. And oddly enough, sworn enemies are also turning into friends. So begins the gripping third installment of this “highly addictive series” (Romantic Times), in which Zoey’s mettle will be tested like never before. Her best friend, Stevie Rae, is undead and struggling to maintain a grip on her humanity. Zoey doesn’t have a clue how to help her, but she does know that anything she and Stevie Rae discover must be kept secret from everyone else at the House of Night, where trust has become a rare commodity. Speaking of rare: Zoey finds herself in the very unexpected and rare position of having three boyfriends. Mix a little bloodlust into the equation and the situation has the potential to spell social disaster. Just when it seems things couldn’t get any tougher, vampyres start turning up dead. Really dead. It looks like the People of Faith, and Zoey’s horrid step-father in particular, are tired of living side-by-side with vampyres. But, as Zoey and her friends so often find out, how things appear rarely reflects the truth…
La verità? Dopo il primo - niente di entusiasmante ma leggibile - ho voluto continuare per curiosità, perchè l'idea non era malvagia... Arrivata al terzo dico stop! Non ce la faccio più a sopportare questo linguaggio da adolescente o meglio da come le scrittrici pensano parli un adolescente! Non credo di aver mai visto tante parentesi tonde in vita mia!...Continua
I have to say this series is my find of the year so far. Last year it was the Sookie Stackhouse series, this year its House of Night. Its like what Harry Potter would have been like if they had started it where the seventh book began! Its all hormone ridden teenagers with added bloodlust and hot-ass vampyres. The author makes a fantastic job of keeping Zoey likeable in this book because there are a lot of reasons we shouldn't like her what with the lying, cheating and the odd killing of almost harmless humans.
The choice between the three male characters is so interesting though. I must admit I probably would have gone with Heath I'm thinking. Although Erik does sound scrump-diddly-umptious! I just freaking knew that there was something odd about that Loren even though I wanted him to be perfect almost as much as Zoey did. My heart broke for her a little when he turned out to be not so perfect at all....Continua
i love it that this world is not just black and white.. there are so many grey shades and the plot is really unexpected. though zoey seems still so immature i like her character because when it is necessary she makes the right choices.
