Book Watch: Awakened (House of Night Book 8) by P. C. Cast and Kristin Cast

Awakened, the next installment in the House of Night series will be available on January 4, 2011 in hardcover, audio and electronic formats. All versions are available for pre-order at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. And judging by the cover art for this book – the best yet – it looks to be just as captivating as (if not more) its predecessors.

With Zoey back from the Otherworld, will she finally be able to defeat Kalona and Neferet? Hopefully Awakened will provide readers with the answer. This looks to be a great book to cure those post-holiday blues.

Description from the author’s website:

Exonerated by the Vampyre High Council and returned to her position of High Priestess at Tulsa’s House of Night, Neferet has sworn vengeance on Zoey. Dominion over Kalona is only one of the weapons she plans to use against Z. But Zoey has found sanctuary on the Isle of Skye and is being groomed by Queen Sgiach to take over for her there. Being Queen would be cool, wouldn’t it? Why should she return to Tulsa? After losing her human consort, Heath, she will never be the same – and her relationship with her super-hot-warrior, Stark, may never be the same either…

And what about Stevie Rae and Rephaim? The Raven Mocker refuses to be used against Stevie Rae, but what choice does he have when no one in the entire world, including Zoey, would be okay with their relationship? Does he betray his father or his heart?

In the pulse-pounding 8th book in the bestselling House of Night series, how far will the bonds of friendship stretch and how strong are the ties that bind one girl’s heart?
