revealed cover

Neferet has finally been defeated by Zoey Redbird and her friends with the help of some unlikely friends. Or, so they think. For the time being Neferet is not an immediate threat, but they know she is not gone for good. Grandma Redbird is safe, and the open house at the Tulsa House of Night is really hitting it off. The young priestesses and prophetesses are starting to come into their roles, and see how hard it is to be a leader. Zoey most of all. With a ll of the building frustration and pressures Zoey is starting to lose herself, and her demeanor. With the rise of Old Magik again there are more forces at work than they have ever had to face.

There’s so much happening in this novel, building up to the final one that I don’t want to give anything away! So, sorry for the vague descriptions. I will say that you learn a lot more about Neferet and her past, and once again the struggles of love are evident. I could tell this novel was a build up one, and I appreciated it for that. I cannot wait to read the last one!! Look out for a Give Away!! Also don’t forget to follow me on twitter at @90sbornreader to follow a House of Night tweet-a-thon that is going to be happening soon!! If you haven’t caught up on the rest of the novels do it soon! It’s time for this series to come to a close, but don’t worry the authors have plenty of more for you to read. Until next time,

Hidden (House of Night Novel 10), P.C. and Kristin Cast

Hidden

      The true plans of Neferet have been discovered and witnessed through a cleansing and reveal ritual done at Sylvia Redbird’s farm. Thanatos, with the help of Zoey and her friends, have seen the truth, and have a better understanding of what they are dealing with, but no good deed goes unpunished. Because the circle used to see the light could not be broken, warriors were used to protect the circle. Dragon fulfilled his oath to Nyx no matter how far he thought he strayed, and gave his life in order to protect them from the bull, Aurox. After being thwarted Neferet decides that it is time for her to get into league with humans to start bringing chaos. Neferet tries to say that she has left the House of Night in Tulsa, when really the High Council has decided that she is to be excommunicated as a vampire entirely.
During this 10th installment of House of Night, it is up to Zoey, Stevie Ray, Aphrodite, and the new fledgling Shalene to figure out their true powers. To really work on using what gifts Nyx has given them to use them to their full potential. It will be difficult for them to battle Neferet without understanding what each one of them are capable of.
I really enjoyed this one! It has been awhile since I fully enjoyed a House of Night novel because there were some twists that I was not expecting that were refreshing. The fledglings in the novel are coming into their own, even though I still believe that Zoey whines way too much. Also the language in this book is kind of adult for it to be a teen novel. There are a lot of F bombs dropped for them to be in high school. I’m not even sure I talk that bad even though I have a terrible mouth. I still really enjoyed it and I can’t read the next and the last one. Until next time,
