Zoey has lost all of her boyfriends, when Erik Night caught her
cheating on him, Loren Blake was killed and her imprint with
Heath Luck was broken, and has also lost her friends' trust for
lying to them. Neferet is up to no good, as proven when
Aphrodite receives a vision about Zoey's grandmother writing a
poem which was originally a song about dangerous creatures which
have the form of ravens.
Zoey grows closer to Aphrodite, but also regains her friends'
trust when she explains why she could not be truthful to them. A
new character, James Stark, is introduced as well.
Stark has an instant connection with Zoey. He tells her of
his unique gift of never missing his target, making him
dangerous with a bow and arrow. He dies in her arms when his
body rejects the Change. Zoey confides in him as he is about to
pass away that he may not be permanently dead, and that he may
return as a new kind of fledgling.

In the end, this proves to be true as Stark returns as an
undead creature and follows Neferet's command to injure Stevie
Rae and causes her to bleed onto the ground, making it appear as
if the earth is bleeding, thus rendering a line in the poem
true. This returns the spirit that the poem spoke of back to the
surface. Zoey leads her friends, including her former boyfriend
Erik Night, away from the House of Night and plans to defeat
Neferet and save the House of Night.
It's a good read but it does become a little dark at times
