  Booklist Review

The end is nigh for House of Night fans and, maybe, for Zoey Redbird and her friends. Evil vampyre Neferet has recovered her strength, while Zoey isn't sure that she has what it will take to bring down the vampyre, who now calls herself a god. Lives are lost, loyalties (and romances) tested, and loose ends neatly tied up in this twelfth and final installment in the series. Fans will happily slurp this down, and with a film adaptation of the series in the works, they'll have more to look forward to.--Reagan, Maggie Copyright 2014 Booklist

  Kirkus Review

In the 12th and final installment of the House of Night series, Zoey Redbird and her band of fledgling vampyres prepare for one final battle, to restore the balance of Light and Darkness before Neferet, the self-proclaimed Goddess of Darkness, destroys everything they know and love. More powerful than ever, Neferet and her "threads of Darkness" are determined to unleash a bloody reign of terror on Tulsa, until every soul left living bows down to her in a "Dark Otherworld come to earth." As with the other House of Night novels, the momentum of the story often falters from extended lapses in action as time is devoted to the individual storylines of a large and unwieldy cast of characters. Though Zoey's sidekicks are entertaining enough, the novel would have benefited from greater focus to keep tensions high and to explore the intriguing suggestion that Zoey and Neferet might have more in common than either of them cares to think. It's a shame that this plot point is given short shrift. The novel is at its best when Zoey must tap into her innate powers, born of the spirit of the Goddess and her ancient Cherokee ancestors. Zoey's strength comes from her differencea theme that has been consistent throughout the series and should resonate with fans one last time in the finale.

Summary
The final&nbspelectrifying installment in the #1 New York Times bestselling vampyre series <p> Zoey Redbird is in trouble. Having released the Seer Stone to Aphrodite, and surrendered herself to the Tulsa Police, she has isolated herself from her friends and mentors, determined to face the punishment she deserves-even if that means her body will reject the change, and begin to die. Only the love of those closest to her can save her from the Darkness in her spirit; but a terrible evil has emerged from the shadows, more powerful than ever... <p> Neferet has finally made herself known to mortals. Crowning herself a Dark Goddess, she is evil unleashed and is enslaving the citizens of Tulsa. The vampyres of the House of Night have banded with the police, and are gathering every last resource they have, but they know that no single vampyre is strong enough to vanquish her-unless that vampyre has the power to summon the elements as well as the ability to wield Old Magick. Only Zoey is heir to such power... but because of the consequences of using Old Magick, she is unable to help. <p> In the final novel in the House of Night series, an epic battle of Light versus Darkness will decide who is redeemed... and who is forever lost. <p> The House of Night series by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast 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, with more than 12 million copies in print and&nbsprights sold in thirty-eight countries to date.
