Yep, Zoey gets worse in this one. If she irritated you in Marked, she’ll still irritate you in this one. However, you get to see more of Aphrodite, whom I love. Zoey gets caught in a love rectangle of her own making between Erik, Heath, and Loren Blake. Her indecision kills me and I just wanna scream “JUST PICK ONE”. Of course she has every intention of keeping Heath out of the picture, but that doesn’t mean it goes how she wants it too. I honestly think she should just give up on that notion, but she persists. Expect more suspense and plot twists that may shock you.

This book had good bits and bad bits. The biggest bad part is I abhor Zoey Redbird. Seriously the girl irks me beyond belief which is hard to deal with in a novel written in first person. She’s whiny and selfish (and trust me, it gets worse as the series progresses). BUT, I love the world around her. I loved her friends, her enemies, and the mythology of the House Of Night. This book also had enough mystery to keep me going when I really wanted to run screaming “Damn Zoey, shut up!”. Would I really reccomend this book to anyone? Probably not. There are too many plot wholes and I have to many issues with the main character to submit a friend to dealing with her, but I am going to finish the series myself. I have a morbid curiousity to see how it ends.

Oh, and for any Christians who are contemplating reading this, if you are offended by bad portrayals of the Christian faith, steer clear of this. They have a religion called the People Of Faith which will offend you to no end.
