Review: Awakened by P.C. Cast + Kristin Cast

Title: Awakened
Author: P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast
Publisher:ST. Martin's Griffin
Date: January 4, 2011

“My love, speak to me. Tell me everything.” Neferet went to Kalona, kneeling before him, stroking the soft, dark wings that unfurled loosely around the immortal.

“What would you have me say?” He didn’t meet her eyes.

“Zoey lives.” Neferet’s voice was flat, cold, lifeless.

“She does.”

“Then you owe me the subservience of your immortal soul.” She started to walk away from him.

“Where are you going? What will happen next?”

“It is quite simple. I will ensure Zoey is drawn back to Oklahoma. There, on my own terms, I will complete the task you failed.”

Exonerated by the Vampyre High Council and returned to her position of High Priestess at Tulsa’s House of Night, Neferet has sworn vengeance on Zoey. Dominion over Kalona is only one of the weapons she plans to use against Z. But Zoey has found sanctuary on the Isle of Skye and is being groomed by Queen Sgiach to take over for her there. Being Queen would be cool, wouldn’t it? Why should she return to Tulsa? After losing her human consort, Heath, she will never be the same – and her relationship with her super-hot-warrior, Stark, may never be the same either…

And what about Stevie Rae and Rephaim? The Raven Mocker refuses to be used against Stevie Rae, but what choice does he have when no one in the entire world, including Zoey, would be okay with their relationship? Does he betray his father or his heart?

In the pulse-pounding 8th book in the bestselling House of Night series, how far will the bonds of friendship stretch and how strong are the ties that bind one girl’s heart?

Why I love this book:

This was an amazing story loved that had me balling my eye out at every turn. I can see why this series is so one everyone's wish list and of course on everyone's radar. It has sexy, spunk, and attitude. I've read all books so far and let me tell you this is not something like Twilight it more than. New York Times Bestselling authors gave me something with this series, I fell in love with Zoey Redbird the moment she had been marked. She has been on a journey of a life time and I always have to wonder how she gets through it than I know its because she has great friends who became her family.

In this one Zoey was finally well awakened and told so many things that were going one, Zoey had to make a choice to stay on a island that doesn't have any drama or return to the drama that and save the world one moment at a time. What she goes though is different that any average teenager but with her elements air, water, earth, fire and spirit and of course her family and her warrior she can kick any ones butt. She has heart and knows when to follow it to do crazy wild things. I am so looking forward to the next one and of course how Zoey's journey ends because both of these Cast's made something with this series and it has made me realize why love and sacrifice can mean so much. I love and respect these women for what they created and shared with all of us HoN whores we just love us some Stark cause he is what Stevie Ray's says is hotter than the bezness.

5/5 stars
