Product Description

Book Description

An old friend is coming back to wreak new trouble in this latest instalment of the worldwide bestselling House of Night series.

From the Back Cover

'I knew forcing a confrontation with Neferet here and now wasn't smart. But I couldn't stop myself. . . '

Zoey finds herself weakened, this time by the brutal death of her mother. While Neferet gathers the forces of Darkness, Zoey must battle grief to rally her own troops; not least Stevie Rae and her newly human consort Rephaim, who has finally turned his back on his cruel immortal father, Kalona.

Working to create chaos at the House of Night, Neferet has joined with the White Bull of pure evil to create a vessel of Darkness, a beautiful boy named Aurox. Yet this strange Dark creature is somehow drawn to be near Zoey - and even to protect her...

Zoey Redbird is safe with her Guardian Warrior, Stark, by her side. Stevie Rae, the first Red High Priestess, is safe with her mate, Rephaim, by her side too. Even Aphrodite, who is not really human or vampyre, has her Guardian Warrior, Darius, always close at hand. Though they and the others reside at the Tulsa Depot, each night they bus to the Tulsa House of Night for their daily lessons. It is difficult to get an education when you must keep your guard up constantly. But since the High Council cannot see Neferet for what she really is, the false High Priestess is still a major problem. The manipulative beauty has totally allied with the white bull (or Darkness). It is Darkness in its purest, most powerful form. The white bull has also given Neferet a gift, a creature she has named Aurox.

Aurox may look like a handsome young man, but he is Neferet's secret weapon. When the gorgeous teen fights, the bull within him begins to show. Neferet tells him never to think or feel for himself - to only do as she commands - but whenever Zoey is near, Aurox cannot help but feel. There is something strange, almost familiar, about the female fledgling.

Rephaim is a former Raven Mocker. Nyx has forgiven and blessed Rephaim. During the day he is a raven, but at night Rephaim is a boy. During school hours, Rephaim does his best to keep his distance from Dragon Lankford. At the same time, Rephaim must deal with his immortal father, Kalona, who claims to want a truce with his new group of friends. Neferet is a shared enemy and Kalona would be a powerful ally, but he still could not be trusted.

Neferet brings the rogue red fledglings and their leader, Dallas, back to the Tulsa House of Night. The bad blood between Dallas and Stevie Rae will cause a lot of trouble.

Format: Hardcover
One thing you need to bear in mind that is that while the characters are having sex occasionally in the series, and they swear - they do talk like seven year olds sometimes. There's a lot of 'Oh Em Gee, really?!?!?!' type conversation. It can wear on the nerves quite steadily, as characters of this age do not speak like that.

However, that being said, this is one of the better books in the series. Cast's character definition, which was sorely lacking in the last few, comes into play in Destined. At least two characters mature, and we get insights into two of the favourites. The storyline works, and the change near the end of the books is suprising but believable. In the last few books, it felt like the storyline was being stretched far too thinly, and the plot was often meandering and dry - in this book though, it comes back to being fast paced withou being rushed. Much more like the P C Cast we know!

Format: Kindle Edition
House of Night books used to dominate on-the-bus conversations between my friend and me, another avid reader. Casts' first few books were exciting, captivating and felt close to reality. One particular hallmark was Zoey's conversational tone, and as a 15 year-old girl, I loved the books. However, even though more and more instalments were cluttering up Waterstones, our debates over each novel became gradually less and less prolonged. What used to be heated arguments over Heath and Eric, followed up shortly by squeals that the next novel was due out soon, eventually became more along the lines of "Did you read the new one? You know, that one with the vampires and stuff?" answered with "Ohhh. That on. Yeah, I did. Can't remember what it was about though." New topic of conversation. The sad, yet realistic fact is, what once was a fun storyline is ageing and fading and becoming, if I'm perfectly honest, ridiculous; over-shadowing its former brilliancy. I am not saying that all storylines should be brief. Sometimes, on occasion, an author such as JK Rowling makes it work. However, what Rowling has that Cast doesn't is structure. Seven Harry Potter books, seven years of secondary schooling. Yet with every new House of Night novel, it is becoming more and more apparent that Cast just wishes to drag the whole plot on for as long as possible, so as to make more money. As understandable as this is, I'm genuinely disappointed. I have always been meticulous about completing book series; if I buy one, I must by the others. Marked was so good that I bought the first six, yet in spite of this I've found myself actually waiting for a new release to come into libraries. I borrowed Destined from a friend, who, like me, vows to never buy another HoN novel after such a let-down. So, one could say its one redeeming feature was its ability to dampen my impatient bookish nature, but other than that, a real shame House of Night has reached such a tragic end.

Format: Paperback
Wow!! I have really struggled to get through this book. The things I found funny and endearing are now getting annoying and frustrating ..

Firstly is the language, I know they're just kids and a lot of profanity would not look good but do people actually say Bullpoopie?? that many times??
Then there are the made up words like Awesomesauce .. I mean really??
And the constant use of BFF and Z .. Urgh !!
And lastly the whole Twin thing .. Why would they constantly refer to each other as twin ?!?! .. Thank God that this issue is sorted out in the book, I was starting to just skip anything that had Twin in it.

Secondly I think there are too many POV now.
I quite enjoy reading various POV as its good to read how different characters react to different situations, but now I'm finding I have to go back a few pages to remember who's POV I am on. And I find Zoey, who has the most, is like a broken record. Yet the other more interesting characters are few and far between and yet they are the ones I am wanting to read

Thirdly the story/plot .. Where is it ??
I feel like there is a fantastic plot that could me made for these books but the story is too stuck on who Zoey is going to be sleeping with and when her next hissy fit is going to be, I know this series is based on Zoey but its the stuff going on in the background that I am fnding I want to read about, and not how many times Aphrodite changes her room decore or who's Gold Card is going to be used.

Hopefully the next book will be better with more plot structure and less whinging.
