Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

The White City, 1893: In turn-of-the-century Chicago, with the World's Fair bringing bustle and excitement to her home city, sixteen-year-old Emily Wheiler should be reveling in her youthful beauty and the excitement around her. But her whole life changed when her mother died, leaving her to be the Lady of Wheiler House. Her father, a powerful bank president, is at the center of an important social hub for the booming young city, and he needs Emily to do everything her mother would have - to be a good hostess and make sure the mansion runs smoothly.
As Emily uneasily tries to replace her mother, she also longs for more... for love and a life of her own. When a handsome young man notices her at one of her father's parties, it seems that her hopes may finally be coming true. Until her father forbids her to see him - or any other man - and starts revealing a darkly violent side that even he can't understand.
At last, afraid for her life and with nowhere to turn, Emily is Marked by a vampyre and brought to the Chicago House of Night, where she begins a magickal new life that should allow the wounds from her past to heal. But as she gains strength, and a powerful new name, she carries a dark need to wreak vengeance on the man she trusted most.
From victim to High Priestess, beautiful young woman to powerful seductress, Neferet's journey begins in NEFERET'S CURSE...

Book description

With more than 12 million books in print, rights sold in almost 40 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...

Customer Product Reviews

Rated 3.7 out of 5★ by 3reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5★ by I pre-ordered this book and it arrived today. It didn't take long to read the book because it was less than 150 pages. I really wanted this book because Neferet is my favorite character from A House of Night. To be honest, I thought this book would be a lot better than it was. This book does give insight into Neferet's past but it is a hard read. Most of the book leading up to the event that changes Neferet's life goes by rather slowly and is pretty boring and the main event is over quickly. This book is not as good as Dragon's Oath or Lebonia's Vow but is a must read for all House of Night fans because to better unstand Neferet, even though a lot of it has been revealed in other books. 02/25/2013
Rated 3 out of 5★ by Must read for HON fans. The book iself left me wanting to know more about why Neferet chose the path she took. The events that take place in the book don't seem like enough to send her so far over the edge, they had to be more stuff that happened. 02/27/2013
