Zoey Redbird has issues. She’s a fledgling vampyre High Priestess, and blessed by the Goddess Nyx. She lost someone she loved, which almost tore her soul apart, and her best friend died–and now possesses unheard-of powers. Zoey is also one of the few who sees the true nature of Neferet, the evil High Priestess intent on destroying Zoey and her friends, and anyone else in the way of her quest for power—and war with humans. With the Vampyre High Council believing in Neferet’s innocence, Zoey is left to combat the evil alone.
Barely healed from the battle for her soul, Zoey returns to Tulsa with her warrior, Stark, at her side, determined to reveal Neferet for who she is: a servant of Darkness. Zoey’s best friend, Stevie Rae, is hiding something that could destroy them all, something that not even Aphrodite, a Prophetess, has foreseen. Now, when Zoey needs her friends the most, Neferet’s evil and Stevie Rae’s secret rips their circle apart forever, and they must stand alone to combat the ancient evil that she has awakened.
Awakened is the eight book in the best-selling House of Night series by P.C. and Kristin Cast. Full of secrets and a desperate battle against evil, the book is a fast-paced tale that drags the reader along for the ride—without giving them a chance to catch their breath.
