Overview

Zoes is finally home where she belongs, safe with her Guardian Warrior, Stark, by her side, and preparing to face off against Neferet—which would be a whole lot easier if the High Council saw the ex-High Priestess for what she really is. Kalona has released his hold on Rephaim, and, through Nyx's gift of a human form, Rephaim and Stevie Rae are finally able to be together—if he can truly walk the path of the Goddess and stay free of his father's shadow. But there are new forces at work at the House of Night, including the mysterious Aurox, a jaw-droppinly gorgeous teen boy who is actually more-or possibly less- than human. Only Neferet knows he was created to be her greatest weapon. But Zoey can sense the part of his soul that remains human, the compassion that wars with his Dark calling. And there's something strangely familiar about him...The ninth installment in the best-selling teen vampyre series The House Of Night.

    Needs to come to an end!

    I love this series but it has really started to drag on WAY too long! The last book "Awakened" was completely pointless. I've enjoyed this serious but put it to rest already! 9 books are more than enough!

    Love this series-Recommend it

    I love The House of Night Series. It is an amazing story and it entraps you from the very first book. I have read all eight books in a matter of two days because i found myself not being able to let it go and wanting to know what happens next. From the very first book Marked to book eight Awakened the story entraps you and seems to not let you go. Well at least that has been my experience with the series and November can't get here fast enough. For everyone who says the series should end I have to say that I half agree with you and half not. What i mean is, yes every series does have to come to and end but I believe it is up to the author when to end it and say that it is done. I don't think nine books is too much nor do I think Awakened was pointless, none of the books are pointless. I think they are well written and I loved how in the last three books Tempted, Burned and Awakened how they put the chapters into different point of views from certain characters to show what there thoughts were and how they really felt during certain situations. I love this series and hope it doesn't come to and end but like I have said before every series even a great one like this must come to and end but hopefully not too soon. I look very much forward to the ninth book Destined to see how Zoey goes up against Neferet and Kalona and how Heath will do fighting against the vessel to try and help save Zoey. I hope it turns out as amazing as the others and I am very confident that it will be.

    Ehhh ok.

    This series was really great in the begining and I was excited for each new one to come out but the last two have been incredibly hard to read. They are so boring and just drag. Yes you want to make more money but end the series already, it's starting to become crap!

    Good series, but too long

    This series is a very good series of books. They are entertaining and a good read, but it needs to end. The books have started to fail in their quality in my opinion and I really think that this should be the last book in the series. These authors need to move on to new books and have a fresh start.

    Comedy Show, Anyone?

    Quite frankly, this series is way too drawn out. I really enjoyed the first, and even the second, book in the series, but the story line follows a pointless pattern of Zoey and her constantly setting her sights on a new man. Each novel is painted with a mix of pathetic attempts to appeal to teenagers and a whole slew of expletives that rival even the vocabulary that would rival even the most profane comedians. Basically, if your looking for a good laugh, then you should definitely read this and be glad that the Casts don't control how teenagers really act, talk, and live.

    I like this series but it needs to come to an end.

    I like this series, it was different from the conventional view of vampires which I find to be intriguing. I looked forward to the next book in the series up until book 5 and then realized that there was no end in site. I have read the previous 8 books, but that was only because I spent to much time reading the first few books in the series to quite without knowing how it ends. If destined isn't the last book or at least the book before the last I will however stop reading. The very thing which has compelled me to turn the page each time, wanting to know what happens next, has now began to frustrate me because this series is so long and drawn out .

    Amazing...

    Love this book from beginning til... waiting for my pre-order book gets to me. At first I wasn't a big fan of Zoey's insecurities or indecisive on guys. But she won me over with her growth and love for others. I can now understand her and I love her ability to love and to be loved! I'm a sucker for romance and i love my Stark! After Heath's death, now i find his bravery to let go beautiful and romantic! Still would love to see Stark and Zoey but Heath is not a bad optoin either ;o)... WAITING ANXIOUSLY

    LOVE THE SERIES! but...

    i absolutly love the series but i feel it has dragged on to long. i had hoped the last one would end it, not because i dislike it, like i said i really love the series. i just thought Awankened would tie the knot to an excellent series. but i guess it didn't anyway i'm still excited to read Destined this fall :)

    Loved tthe whole series, but i wanted awakened to be the last one. When i first started reading the series, i was laughing all the time, it was so witty and great. But now, its getting darker and sadder with every book! BRING BACK THE JOY!!

    Was ok but had a few problems with it.

    *Spoiler alert* if you haven't read Awakened or the other previous books for that matter, don't read this review. Destined is the 9th novel in the House of Night series and I found it lacking in some areas. At the end of Awakened, Zoey finds out through a dream that her mother had been killed. I found that for a teenage girl, she was surprisingly ok for losing a parent. Sure, a large part of the story is Zoey wanting to know what happened to her. However, if I lost my mom in a violent way, even if I was like Zoey and not close to my mother, I would still be sobbing my eyes out, not attending school the next day. Damien's grief over losing Jack seemed much more genuine and how people usually act when they've lost someone they care about. Zoey is way to interested in other things to care and, in my opinion, not normal for her character. Example, Zoey's soul shattered when Heath died. Her mother dies and she acts like it wasn't a huge deal. Sure she want to know why it happened but she doesn't even tell anyone except Stark until her grandma comes to give her the news. In other parts, the situation between the twins is also strange. I wont tell what happens but for 2 people who are as close as they are, its strange that one wouldn't understand the others pain when they are so connected. A lot of people in this book are uncharacteristic from how they've been portrayed in previous novels. Most of the House of Night novels have a twist or cliff hanger at the end. This one however was very very unexpected. Again, very uncharacteristic. I'm not sure where they are taking this but I hope its leading to a conclusion of the story. In the earlier books there were months or weeks between novels. In the last 3 novels its been days. This one starts just after she woke up from the dream of her mothers death and only spans a 5 day period. The story needs to progress or end. I would love to see a new series started of what Zoey's (or any of the other main character's) life will be like after she leaves school. These vampires live for hundreds of years. This story has span 9 novels and has only been about 1 year of a young girls life. If each book progressed in the time sense the first book came out, Zoey would be 21 now. Time to move on to bigger and better things and let this story come to an end.
