At the start of Awakened, the pulse-pounding eighth installment of the bestselling House of Night series, Zoey has returned, mostly whole, from the Otherworld to her rightful place as High Priestess at the House of Night. Her friends are just glad to have her back, but after losing her human consort, Heath, will Zoey—or her relationship with her super- hot Warrior, Stark—ever be the same? Stevie Rae is drawn even closer to Rephaim, the Raven Mocker with whom she shares a mysterious and powerful Imprint, but he is a dangerous secret that isolates her from her school, her red fledglings, and even her best friends. When the dark threat of Neferet—who is coming closer and closer to achieving her twisted goal of immortality—and Kalona returns, what will it take to keep the House of Night from being lost forever, and what will one desperate girl do to keep her heart from being irreparably broken?

There is so many things about this book I just want to tell you but I won't that would be very naughty of me can't spoil it for those who have yet to read it. However, I will try to do this review spoiler free.

Awakened is the eighth installement in the amazing House of Night series. I have been hooked to these books from the first book Marked and I have enjoyed most of them. However, I was a little disappoinment with Tempted and Burned but Awakened is right back on form and the Casts havedelivered a fast paced story line that will make you laugh and cry.

Awakened picks up where Burned Finished. With Zoey and some of her friends on the Isle of Skye recovering from the events of Burned. While the rest are still in Tulsa. With the Cast change in point view we get to read a few of characters thoughts and how they are dealing with the events throughout the book. When the Casts decided to have a few points of views in their books, at first I wasn't sure but now that I am used to it I really like it. What I really liked was how we got to have Jacks point of view. He never really seemed to have a big roll in the books and getting his point to view was great. I love him.

My only negative is that even the Twins and Aphrodite (she is my favourite character, she's a bitch and fabulous) aren't really involved in the story as much as they usually are although it wasn't that much of a negative to stop it being a 5star book.

I promise if you are a fan of this series and haven't read it get right on it. Or if you haven't read any yet what have you been waiting for. It a great series but the magical twist on vampires.


So overall, an excellent installement and I am looking forward to Destined. I am going to leave you with one word:

Rate: 5/5
