What if the hottest guy in the world was hiding a nameless evil, and all he wanted was you?
At the start of this heart-pounding new installment of the bestselling House of Night series, Zoey and her gang must discover a way to deal with an unexpected danger that might bring them all down. Neferet guards her powerful new consort, Kalona, who looks gorgeous and has the House of Night under his spell. A past life holds the key to breaking his rapidly spreading power, but what if it shows Zoey truths she can't face? Meanwhile, the red fledglings have cleaned up well, but are they really as friendly as they seem? On the boyfriend front, Zoey has a chance to fix things with super-hot ex-, Erik, but she can't stop thinking about Stark, the archer who died in her arms, and she is driven to save him from Neferet's sinister influence. Will anyone believe the power evil has to hide among us?

That means you have my heart, too.” “Then both of us better stay safe. A heart’s a hard thing to live without. I should know. I’ve tried it,” he said. “But no more,” I said. “No more,” he agreed. Stark kissed me with such

Then I heard the nasty wing-flapping sound, and I decided to uncrouch—quickly. I emerged from under the side of the tree just in time to see Darius grabbing a Raven Mocker by his wing, jerking him to the ground, and then slitting his throat. I looked away fast. “Zoey, come on. We have no time.”

He exploded from the ground after Stevie Rae bled all over it.” I watched her closely, thinking that maybe the reason she recognized Kalona’s evil was that she was too darn familiar with evil. “Look, he had wings. That ain’t right,” Kramisha added, fragmenting my attention. “My mama told me don’t trust no white boy, even a pretty one. I’m thinkin’ a
High Priestess who messed with my mind?” Heath asked me. “No,” Erik said. “Yes,” I said at the same time. I frowned at Erik. “He needs to know the truth to protect himself.” “The less he knows, the better it is for him,” Erik insisted. “No, see, that’s what I thought before, and that’s why everyone was so mad at me. That’s also why I made some major mistakes.” I looked from Erik to Heath. “If I hadn’t kept so many secrets and had trusted my friends to handle themselves, I might have talked
can you hear me?” I could feel that Stevie Rae had hold of my hand, but just barely. It took what felt like a superhuman effort, but I whispered, “Yeah.” Stevie Rae clutched my hand harder. “You’re gonna be okay. ’Kay? Nothin’ can happen to you, ’cause I don’t know what I’d do—” Her voice caught on a sob, and then she said, “You can’t die ’cause you’ve always believed the best of me, so I’ve tried to be what you believe I am.
