No. of pages: 323
Rating: 9/10
Series: House Of Night (Book 7)

Synopsis: Y’all need to get yourselves together. Here’s a newsflash from the only High Priestess you have left at this dang school: Zoey isn’t dead. And believe me, I know dead. I’ve been there, done that and got the fricken tee-shirt.

Zoey Redbird is the youngest High Priestess in House of Night history and is the only person – vamp or fledgling – that can stop the evil Neferet from raising all kinds of immortal trouble. And she might just have a chance if she wasn’t so busy being dead.

Well, dead is too strong a word. Stevie Rae knows she can bring her BFF back from her unscheduled va-cay in the Otherworld. But it’s going to take a lot more than hoping to bring Zoey back. Stevie Rae will have to give up a few secrets of her own...

Review: Zoey's soul has shattered, and unless she manages to piece herself back together, she'll stay forever as a restless soul wandering through the Otherworld. So Stevie Rae, Aphrodite, Stark and the 'nerd herd' make it their mission to save her, but like everything, it comes at a price...

I thought this book really brought this series back to how good it was at the beginning. The past few books have been all about Zoey being so boy obsessed, that they became kind of boring to read, but this moved completely away from that, so it was really refreshing to read. I loved the focus on Stevie Rae as she's my favourite character, and I'm really enjoying the direction of her story. I've also fallen completely in love with Rephaim, which is almost wrong, but he seems so adorable, and I loved his character development in this book. I can't wait to see what happens with that whole storyline as you can be sure it's going nowhere good! My one grouch was how much pointless swearing there was, in some instances it was so out of place and it jarred the flow of the dialogue. As usual, the writing flowed really well, and it was so easy to read and I liked that it continued with the alternating between characters with the chapters. Definitely a great return to the series, and I can't wait for the next installment, here's to hoping that it is as good as Burned was!

I'm so happy to see a good review of this! My friend just said it and said she didn't really like it. Very glad that it's getting back on track because I'm getting close to giving this series up.
