This book was one of my favorites out of this series. It gives the readers a chance to actually sit down and get to know Zoey and her feelings a little better. Her human boyfriend, Heath, gives us( and Zoey) a window to the outside world as Zoey realizes just how powerful her and her circle are. She begins to see the effects of her power on others, and how her powers give her more responsibility in the house of night, as she becomes that leader of the dark daughters and sons. She takes control of her actions as she soon gets caught in Erik Night's allure and charm. Zoey then starts noticing the "consequences" of being a high priestess in training, now that she is allowed to have a boyfriend and a consort, and has some trouble dealing with her attraction for both Erik and heath. Zoey learns a few lessons, but mostly this book is just a "filler". It gives us more back-round information on Zoey, her friends, and Neferet's slow transformation into becoming who she truly wants to be. With this, we also start to see Zoey's true colors show as she faces off some of her worst enemies.
