Life sucks when your friends are pissed at you. Just ask Zoey Redbird – she’s become an expert on suckiness. In one week she has gone from having three boyfriends to having none, and from having a close group of friends who trusted and supported her, to being an outcast.

Speaking of friends, of the two Zoey has left, one is undead and one is unMarked. And Neferet has declared war on humans, which Zoey knows in her heart is wrong. But will anyone listen to her?

Zoey’s adventures at vampyre finishing school take a wld and dangerous turn as loyalties are tested, shocking true intentions come to light, and an ancient evil is awakened


And on to book four.

The explanations of the events that happened in the previous book were once again dragged out and told as if we were stupid. That really annoyed me. But I continued reading. Even though I found it pretty hard.

I found it hard to finish this book. I think it had to do with a lot of the conversations because they were meaningless chatter about nothing in particular. It was hard to stay focussed on reading. Then there’s the fact that there was another ‘insta-love’ as everyone calls it with a new character. Seriously, Zoey had known the guy for literally an hour and bam she was already kissing him and hating her self for liking him. She barely knew the guy! Seriously! How unrealistic!

I also hated the time period. But at least all the books are sticking to it. Two days, four days max. This just annoys me.

Then there was Erik, he is way too good for Zoey. He deserves better. Yet I hate how he can act so immature sometimes.

It seems the more books I read of this series the angrier I feel…

Although the ending was a cliff hanger. And of course I’m interested to know what happens next. But I need a break from Zoey and her somewhat irritating friends.

Although I have said all of this I still think this series is very clever.
