Since a horrible accident claimed the lives of her family, sixteen-year-old Ever can see auras, hear people’s thoughts, and know a person’s life story by touch. Going out of her way to shield herself from human contact to suppress her abilities has branded her as a freak at her new high school—but everything changes when she meets Damen Auguste… Ever sees Damen and feels an instant recognition. He is gorgeous, exotic and wealthy, and he holds many secrets. Damen is able to make things appear and disappear, he always seems to know what she’s thinking—and he’s the only one who can silence the noise and the random energy in her head. She doesn’t know who he really is—or what he is. Damen equal parts light and darkness, and he belongs to an enchanted new world where no one ever dies.
MY REVIEW (MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS)
I really liked this book – which is weird because, in truth, not a lot happened. It reminded me of Twilight: Girl falls in love with mysterious boy, finds out boy is [enter vampire, immortal, etc.], boy and girl hook up, someone tries to kill girl, that someone dies, and boy and girl live happily ever after.

Zoey needs a break after some serious excitement. Sadly, the House of Night school for vampyres doesn’t feature breaks on its curriculum—even for a High Priestess in training and her gang. Plus juggling three guys is no stress reliever, especially when one is a sexy Warrior so into protecting Zoey that he’s sensing her emotions. Wider stresses lurk too, and the dark force in Tulsa’s tunnels is spreading. Could Stevie Rae be responsible for more than a group of misfit fledglings? And Aphrodite’s visions warn Zoey to stay away from the immortal Kalona and his dark allure—but they also show that only Zoey can stop him. She’s not exactly keen to meet up, but if Zoey doesn’t go to Kalona he’ll exact a fiery vengeance on those closest to her. She just has to find the courage to do what’s necessary, or everything that’s important to her will be destroyed.
My Thoughts (May Contain Spoilers)
I was very pleased with this book. In the past 4 books for the House of Night series, P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast spend a lot of time explaining everyone and everything. By the sixth book, we know where everyone goes to school, we know the characters, we know Kalona and what he’s done, so there’s no need to get into it again.
Today I start my umpteenth blog. OK, it’s my 4th. But still.
The first one was about weight loss. The second was a food blog, a journal, if you may. And the third was yet another food blog, but one that housed recipes.
This blog is an attempt to talk about something I love to do. Reading.
There’s something about curling up in front of the fireplace, during a cold, Canadian winter night (I mean, who really goes outside in that weather?), next to my dogs and cats, sipping a mug of hot cider or hot chocolate.
So, this being November 3rd, I thought I would start this blog as a challenge to myself. To read books more often. To remember books more often – maybe even try writing a review about them. And to share the books I love with other people. Continue reading
