It’s Zoey’s eighteenth birthmas and the Nerd Herd has been scattered across the country busily adulting for almost a year when Stark calls them back to Tulsa to surprise Z. But all is not well in T-town. Strange, dark signs are appearing—could it be possible Neferet is stirring? Not willing to chance disaster striking again, Zoey calls on her newly reunited friends to circle with her and add a layer of protection over Neferet’s grotto jail. Easy-peasy, right?
Wrong. Nothing at the House of Night is ever as it seems.
With rabid red vampyres closing in, Zoey and the Nerd Herd must come together again and battle evil. But a year is a long time. Have these old friends grown too far apart?
When the world fractures and allies become enemies, will darkness devour friendships or will light save those she’s loved?

Not as good as other books
It was very uncomfortable how flippant all the characters were about death. The plot was very lacking... Zoey and her friends create a problem that causes mass murders in their town, but are able to laugh have a birthday and watch finding Nemo 24 hours later... The way they recover so quickly from multiple people dying is profoundly disturbing. There's a lot more I could complain about --the tediousness of waiting for every character to respond and interrupt in their own unique way constantly... the way it sounded like a cast reunion or fan writing, which was so unnecessary... it sounded like a preachy book against suicide (also tedious) and yet they all toast at the end when Aphrodite's mother overdoses. I enjoyed the first series, but found this book disturbing and uncomfortable.
