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?
The thing I like the most about the HON series is that it is non-stop adventure. There's always something dramatic going on. Well in this book I felt like the adventure was lagging. My heart didn't race at any point. I wasn't speeding through pages. I basically just read it to get it over with, and I hate when I feel that way :( HON is one of my fav series so I hate to not give it an awesome review but this book was basically just building up for the next good vs evil fight, that I feel will happen in the next book.
Don't get me wrong, there are definitely some significant things that happen in this book, so I wouldn't skip over it... but it just wasn't what I was hoping for. I must say though, I think it's hilarious when Stark talk to Zoey in Seoras' accent. lol I don't know why but when I say it in my head it sounds too funny. ;x
