In the final electrifying novel in the HoN series, Neferet has finally made herself known to mortals. A Dark Goddess is loose on Tulsa and the world. No single vampyre is strong enough to vanquish her - unless that creature has the power to summon the elements as well as the ability to wield Old Magick. Only Zoey Redbird is heir to such power…but because of the consequences of using Old Magick, she is unable to help. Find out who will win and who will lose in this epic battle of Light versus Darkness.

The House of Night series is an international phenomenon, reaching #1 on U.S., German, and UK bestseller lists, and remaining a fixture on The New York Times Children’s Series bestseller list for nearly 160 weeks and counting.

Now, in the final installment of the series, Zoey and her friends face the ultimate battle with evil which will determine the fate of the world, both human and vampyre.

(Recommended for readers age 13 and older)


Utterly amazing.  Loved how the author's took this series and closed it out with a bang!  Couldn't get enough and wanted more even after!  Blew through this book like it was nothing and kept myself up at night to finish it!

Zoey finally has her way and casts out the evil in Tulsa.  Morals are running scared because of Neferet and with that they know who and how evil she really is.  Coming together to fight off the wicked both vampyre and mortal stand. 

As the final book starts there is an unbalance in the world of good an evil.  Ripples of evil effecting not only Tulsa but other places of power around the world!  Zoey and her friends must find a way to balance the evil that has spread.  Through old magic, one so powerful that even Zoey is afraid of using it to conquer Neferet she must find a balance also within herself.  Her intentions must be pure without ill intent. 

Though fear of hurting those she loves overwhelms Zoey and she wants nothing to do with Old Magic, things get worse and she has no choice but to wield Old Magic anyways.  I loved how this book started and ended, it's been a long road and the time I've spent with Zoey and her friends I'll miss - so here's to the end - much love to all the characters in the HON Series!
