With more than twelve million books in print, rights sold in almost forty countries, and over two years on the New York Times bestseller list, the House of Night series is an international publishing sensation. Now, the excitement continues as the Cast mother-daughter duo shares the back stories of a few of the House of Night’s most important—and mysterious—characters. In the third House of Night novella, Neferet’s Curse, the secret history we’ve all been waiting for is finally revealed…

Neferet, the Tulsa House of Night’s darkly seductive High Priestess, wasn’t always a powerful vampyre, but she has always been beautiful. Raised in turn-of-the-century Chicago in a motherless home, her beauty makes her the prey of unwanted attention and abuse, leaving her with scars that will never heal—and a Darkness that will eventually need to find its way out. But when she is Marked and gains strength, both physical and magickal, she turns her anger into power and looks for a way to regain what was stolen from her. From victim to High Priestess, beautiful young woman to powerful seductress, Neferet’s journey begins…

    " Now I can see why she is suck a u know what ! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 1/30/2014

    " For just a moment I totally forgot this sad mistreated little girl, Emily was Neferet. I fell in love with Emily, I felt for her, I wanted to save her myself. No person should be made to feel as she did. Especially in those day, a mere girl of 16 was utterly helpless. In swoops her knight in shining armor to ride her off into the sunset, only to befall the neglect and abuse all over again. Then swoops in Neferet, and we are back to the truely evil woman we all love to hate. While I understand and feel for her pain, Neferet remains my most hated character in The House Of Night. Don't worry, every story needs a bad guy well woman, evil insane sociopath to make the story worth reading. As with every HON book, I loved every word. Well done P.C. Cast! "

    " showed a deeper understanding of why she is the way she is. great insight extremely well written "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jaime | 1/8/2014

    " This was actually pretty good. Even knowing how horrible Emily/ Neferet will grow up to be, you can't help but feel some pity for her and her situation "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tiffiane | 1/5/2014

    " This book wasn't nearly as good as the first two. Maybe because it was written from Neferet's standpoint, who I don't like, I'm not sure. It was very slow moving and took me a long time to get through it. It wasn't until the ending 20 pages that things finally started to pick up and I started to enjoy it. I'm glad I read it, but it definitely wasn't anywhere near the caliber of books I have come to enjoy from this and the HoN series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christine | 1/1/2014

    " Really opens your eyes to why Neferet is such an uber creeper. Beautiful but creepy. Also makes you sympathize with her character and all of her hardships. I can't wait to read the next novella P.C and Kristin should really explore Nyx or Kalona next. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sondra | 12/27/2013

    " Quick read. It only took me a couple of hours. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Xiomara | 12/15/2013

    " I was a bit skeptical in reading this novella at first but I did wanted why Neferet turned up the way she did. overall, I found this to be a bit fascinated on the type of journey that she went through. A it was an interesting story and finished in two days. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 ...Ashley... | 11/25/2013

    " An awesome novella about a character that I hated but now pity and feel extremely sorry for :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jaymi | 11/23/2013

    " Evoked a true sense of the turn of the century aristocracy and peerage. The cumulative ending of Emily's father's final abusive act was difficult to read; which to me equates as a strong, well written execution of such an incredibly taboo subject matter. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Francesca | 11/14/2013

    " This book is much more well written than the actual HON novels, and now i do understand why Neferet is such a horrible evil vampyre, but i still did not enjoy as much as i did the other two Novellas. I wonder if the authors will write another one before the series ends. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Courtney | 10/26/2013

    " This is not a type of story I would normally read. I don't care for diary-type entries or stories of abuse. However, I already love the character of Neferet and I did enjoy getting to know her in her formative years. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mollie Trail | 10/7/2013

    " This story was very touching (though not really in a light sort of way). It made Neferet a much more sympathetic character. You now see where that dark side in her originates. I loved having this back story for her. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dina | 9/11/2013

    " well, I still hate her, sooo.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marissa | 7/4/2013

    " Very interesting and sad "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Liz Nickel | 6/13/2013

    " Very slow for such a short book and doesn't really add anything to the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samantha | 5/18/2013

    " Didn't expect to give this more than a 3, but Neferet is an influential character in the series and understanding who she once was is pivotal to understanding her villainous choices. Essentially every cause has an effect and in Neferet's case she fell to the "white" side. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helen | 5/5/2013

    " So this is Neferet's past. I can see she was already beginning to be evil. But its really sad, just bad circumstances can change you like that. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 5/2/2013

    " Though it was a good read, it was difficult to read because of the content. It hit a little close to home. I do enjoy the writing style though and look forward to the next book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jean Cable | 4/13/2013

    " I really liked reading of the beginning of Neferet's, great story! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen Peacock | 4/2/2013

    " This book really opened up for me how Neferet came to the dark side of her life. I really enjoy this series!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kris | 3/31/2013

    " Great book. Easy read "

    " I imagined her life a little worse... it was okay but still i hoped for something more "
