Review: Destined by P.C. and Krisin Cast

Goodreads description: Zoey is finally home where she belongs, safe with her Guardian Warrior, Stark, by her side, and preparing to face off against Neferet -- which would be a whole lot easier if the High Council saw the ex-High Priestess for what she really is. Kalona has released his hold on Rephaim, and, through Nyx's gift of a human form, Rephaim and Stevie Rae are finally able to be together -- if he can truly walk the path of the Goddess and stay free of his father's shadow.

But there are new forces at work at the House of Night. An influx of humans, including Lenobia's handsome horse whisperer, threatens their precarious stability. And then there's the mysterious Aurox, a jaw-droppingly gorgeous teen boy who is actually more -- or possibly less -- than human. Only Neferet knows he was created to be her greatest weapon. But Zoey can sense the part of his soul that remains human, the compassion that wars with his Dark calling. And there's something strangely familiar about him . . .

Will Neferet's true nature be revealed before she succeeds at extinguishing Light? And will Zoey be able to touch Aurox's humanity in time to protect them all? Find out what's destined in the next thrilling chapter of the House of Night series.

Ohmygodohmygodohmygod. Soooo much stuff happens in this book. Seriously. There was never a dull moment. The book never slowed down. I was hooked from the very first sentence, and all the way through.
And the characters. Wow. There’s your main characters; Zoey, Stevie Rae, Neferet, etc. But even some of the smaller characters are given a spotlight this time around, such as Shaunee, Lenobia, and Dragon. Quick question for those who are kind enough to follow my blog: There’s going to be a short novella from Lenobia’s point of view right?? ‘Cuz there’s still some things left unanswered after Destined.
Neferet… Grrrrrr. There are no words I can use to describe her right now that would leave this post rated PG-13. She just gets worse with each addition to the series. Okay, at first, in Marked, she was amazing. And then….ugh. I hate her. So much.
But Kalona.. ohmygoodness you guys. You seriously need to read this book and just be amazed. Your mind will literally be blown by some of the stuff that happens.
And this new guy-Aurox. Yeah. I just don’t this kid. Which is saying something, ‘cuz I’m a major “Team Heath” fan. He’s just…not right. At all. I mean, towards the end he isn’t as bad, but still. Some of you guys will be furious with something at the end…..
P.C. and Kristin have done it again. I’ve loved the House of Night series from the beginning. What I love about series is that each separate book has its own plot, yet all together, the books for one huge plot. I think Destined is the start of the climax.
For those of you who haven’t read the rest of the series, shame on you. Just kidding :D But really, you need to read this series. And for those who have read books 1-8, you MUST read this one. If you’ve already read Destined, tell me what you think (or comment with a link to your review)!
