Zoey has been marked to become a vampyre. She attends the school House of Night where she learns about the vampyre culture. Zoey has been chosen by the goddess Nyx to become the High Priestesses. Neferet is currently the one holding that title and she's becoming evil. You see Neferet is responsible for the death of Stevie Rae (Zoey's best friend). But Stevie Rae isn't really dead - its more like she's the un-dead dead and has become a monster. Zoey believe she can still save her best friend. Zoey thinks this has made Stevie Rae different than the other creatures.
Zoey can't tell anyone about Stevie Rae because Neferet will read their minds and know. When they go to have another circular ritual someone has to replace Stevie Rae's earth spot. Zoey quickly prays to Nyx - who sends her nemesis Aphrodite. Zoey soon learns that Aphrodite isn't that bad and she's actually nice and is the only one that can help her. Zoey goes to get Stevie Rae and take her to Aphrodite's house where Stevie Rae can clean up.
As if Zoey's problems weren't enough she now has 1 more problem. Loren is a young, extremely hot drama professor at the school. Loren is pretending to like Zoey so that he can ruin her relationships. It works. Loren convinces Zoey to drink his blood and she drinks his. Then he convinces her to tell him everything that has been bothering her. She does - spilling the secret about Stevie Rae. Erik walks in on them, and Zoey runs to catch up. As she's walking she hears Neferet talking to Loren. Zoey learns that Loren really doesn't love her like he said, and that he's only doing as Neferet bids.
Zoey has to save her best friend, avoid Neferet, and keep her friends from abandoning her.
I apologize for the bad review, but I just couldn't think of a review for this book. It really didn't stand out. I don't know if I will read these series (this time starting with book 1). I had a hard time getting into the grove of the book. I am curious though to see how she will resolve the problems - that alone will probably make me finish the series.
The Girls over at B.A.M. Book Reviews have already reviewed the 1st book. Go over there to check it out :)
