Fledgling vampyre Zoey Redbird has managed to settle in at the House of Night. She's come to terms with the vast powers the vampyre goddess, Nyx, has given her, and is getting a handle on being the new Leader of the Dark Daughters. Best of all, Zoey finally feels like she belongs--like she really fits in. She actually has a boyfriend...or two. Then the unthinkable happens: Human teenagers are being killed, and all the evidence points to the House of Night. While danger stalks the humans from Zoey's old life, she begins to realize that the very powers that make her so unique might also threaten those she loves. Then, when she needs her new friends the most, death strikes the House of Night, and Zoey must find the courage to face a betrayal that could break her heart, her soul, and jeopardize the very fabric of her world.

Her best friend has no clue where the former magical girl is or what she's doing, but she's determined to find out.
Even if it means attacking Kendra.
Chronos has a brand new unwanted houseguest she can't get rid of. And this one has more than a few screws loose and is adorably evil. What do you do with a ten-year-old dark magical girl?
But she underestimates the language barrier, she overestimates her own competence at villainy, and she's not used to fighting without magic.
So attacking an entire school of magical girls may not be the wisest thing she's ever done.
Especially since a villainous fashion designer is watching.
She also doesn't want a houseguest. Unfortunately for her, Kendra is insisting on both, and the former magical girl will not listen to reason.
In desperation, Chronos goes to the one person she trusts least for help:
Her sister, Rhea.
Rhea, who is a fashion designer for villains. Rhea, whose favorite hobby is corrupting magical girls.
Chronos has the power to see the future, and that's the future Chronos foresees. All she wants is to get a good night's sleep, so she decides to have a simple conversation with the fated ringleader in hopes that it will set that horrible future straight.
But Kendra is not an easy person to convince. Kendra wants to save the world. And if she has to cram that down the world's throat, well, so be it.
