Neferet's Curse (House of Night Novella Series #3) by P. C. Cast, Kristin Cast

The White City, 1893: In turn-of-the-century Chicago, with the World's Fair bringing bustle and excitement to her home city, sixteen-year-old Emily Wheiler should be reveling in her youthful beauty and the excitement around her. But her whole life changed when her mother died, leaving her to be the Lady of Wheiler House. Her father, a powerful bank president, is at the center of an important social hub for the booming young city, and he needs Emily to do everything her mother would have – to be a good hostess and make sure the mansion runs smoothly.

As Emily uneasily tries to replace her mother, she also longs for more… for love and a life of her own. When a handsome young man notices her at one of her father's parties, it seems that her hopes may finally be coming true. Until her father forbids her to see him – or any other man – and starts revealing a darkly violent side that even he can't understand.

At last, afraid for her life and with nowhere to turn, Emily is Marked by a vampyre and brought to the Chicago House of Night, where she begins a magickal new life that should allow the wounds from her past to heal. But as she gains strength, and a powerful new name, she carries a dark need to wreak vengeance on the man she trusted most.

From victim to High Priestess, beautiful young woman to powerful seductress, Neferet's journey begins in NEFERET'S CURSE...from authors P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast.

Reviewed by Janessa, Age 15 Neferet’s Curse is one of those books you see from afar and are magically drawn to. Running your fingers over the beautiful dust jacket and feeling the need to read it, all at once. That is exactly what I did too.  This book is smaller than a typical book and maybe that is what makes it stand apart, particularly since it is written in journal style. “‘He had made it clear that I am trapped to be his slave and his imaginary wife!’ I’d Shouted ‘The only time for myself I can manage are the few minutes I steal with you, and the time I spend in Mother’s garden- and then only at night…’” This book is part of a series, and the third installment to The House of Night Novellas and an easy stand alone. The year is Eighteen Hundred Ninety Three and fifteen year old Emily watches as her mother’s life quickly escapes her during child birth with her last words of her mother’s ingrained into her memory. Emily mourns through her sixteenth birthday, withering away to nothing when her father finally lays a firm hand down and demands she straighten up her act and she quickly resumes the role of her mother as Lady of the house, a daunting task wearing thin on the young girl. That is until she meets a handsome guy that her father forbids she see; or any man for that matter, unleashing a violent side that even startles him. Afraid for her life and on the run, she is absorbed into the Vampyre life where she learns a whole new world awaits her. What are you waiting for? This read is everything you have been looking for! *This book was provided in exchange for an honest review*          *You can view the original review at Musing with Crayolakym and  San Francisco & Sacramento City Book Review

Waited a long time for this to come out. For this being about Neferet, a major HoN character I expected more. Dragon's Oath and Lenobia's Vow were both much more entertaining and informative about two professors that hadn't had nearly as much of a role in the HoN series. Every page was a turner solely for the fact that I was anxious for the story to take off. Unfortunately this book was a lame duck in my opinion, like lighting a firework and standing back waiting for a dud to explode only to realize it isn't going to happen. I'll still continue to read the series as I have found it enjoyable, however this book was a miss.

I have loved reading the short novellas and this was no exception.It gave a spin on Neferet that makes you hope that some way she may find redemption. this my not be popular with some readers but I sure hope she does.

If you are a fan of the house of night series you will love this book not only will you learn Neferets back story and why she is the way she is, you will fall in love with series all over again. it shows another side of the story and makes you want more. Neferets, ending is tragic, but it makes you question yourself. What would u have done if you were in her shoes? Would you have done the same as her and forever changed? And as always i recommend you pick the house of night series and fall in love. Be careful u just might get addicted like the rest of us! Ps. Sor for the first post im to fast for the nook keypad.

If ur a true house of night fan, then you must read Neferets story. Its very sad and does explain how she came to be how she is. Ir's a very short story, only 114 pages, but it's good. So that's the only thing i can say bad about it, is that it costs as much as a full length book. Reader beware, there is graphic abuse and not recommended for under 16.

House of Night series is awesome! I have read everyone and getting ready to read this one. By the time this series ends I hope Zoey defeats Neferet for good. I would like to see her matured into who she should be. Love reading each book! Thank you PC Cast.

Cant believe i paid all this money for only 100 pages! Never again, shame on the deception

Unfortunately this one does't do the series justice & wasn't a well thought out story line. Other than discovering Neferet's Father was an emotionally unbalanced tyrant, not an unusual concept for the "victorian" era, nothing new was brought to the table. I was just glad this was a novella, as I'm not sure I could have gotten through a full book. I've loved this series and have each & every book. However, if the quality of story line continues like this one, it's time to end the series, which I understand there's only one more book left. I only hope she ends it with a bang & not a whimper, like this one was.

The writting was good, but I purchase the book thinking it was more of the House of Night theme... Just Neferet's story as a vampire.... Not Her Human story with the abuse storyline.... sadly disappointed since I love all the other books.

The begining of the book was going a little slow but it picked up. I did not think it was possible but by the end of the book I felt sorry for Neferet.
