Be Awakened

Monday, January 17, 2011
I am a House of Night fan, the series by P.C. Cast & Kristen Cast. The series is about vampires and they're connection with the goddess, Nyx. So of course, witchcraft and vampires, I was hooked. I've read the whole series, and The Fledgling Handbook. I just finished the newest one Awakened the other day.

In this book, we find Zoey and her Guardian, Stark just returned from the Otherworld, Nyx's land. They were on an ancient island with an almost forgotten about Vampire Queen. On this island is also the spirits and beings that the rest of the world has forgotten. Who with Zoey's blood can become physical again, not sure how that will play out in the next book, but I can't wait to find out. With Zoey's return from the Otherworld so is Kalone, which means that Rephaim leaves Stevie Rae to go to his father side. But he does eventually choose the right side, he chooses the path of the Goddess and to be by Stevie Rae's side. His gift and punishment for choosing wisely and for his past deeds, Nyx turns Rephaim to a completely human boy during the night to be with Stevie Rae, and he will be completely a raven during the day. We also have Zoey's mom finally choosing the right side, only to be killed by Darkness as a sacrifice, not the right one, so Nyx was able to give Heath a choice to return to Earth to help Zoey.

This book warmed my heart, and yes made me cry, but that might be the pregnancy hormones. I love this series, it reminds me to look deeper than the surface. As Nyx told Zoey the day she was marked in the first book, Marked.
"Remember, darkness does not always equate to evil, just as light does not always bring good."

  1. I have to admit that I just skimmed this review since I've only read the first in the series.
