With the upcoming release of the eleventh novel, Revealed, of the House of Night series, as per usual sneak peaks have been released on the House of Night Facebook page. Revealed continues the long journey that centers around a fledgling named Zoey and her group of friends called the Nerd Herd as they battle against darkness and their mentor Neferet.
Drastically altered after her fall at the end of Hidden, Neferet is now more dangerous than ever—and her quest for vengeance will wreak havoc on humans, as well as Zoey and her friends. Chaos is loosed in Tulsa and the House of Night is blamed. Can Zoey stop Neferet in time to keep her anger from escalating to full-on war? Or will someone else have to step in to take the fall?
The House of Night series is an international phenomenon, reaching #1 on U.S., German, and UK bestseller lists, and remaining a fixture on The New York Times Children’s Series bestseller list for nearly 150 weeks and counting. With more than 12 million copies in print, rights sold in thirty-eight countries to date, and relatable, addictive characters, this series is unstoppable. Now, in the eleventh and penultimate installment of the series, the action is more intense and the stakes even higher as Zoey and her friends battle to protect their school and home from devastating evil—all while balancing romances, precarious friendships and the daily drama of the House of Night’s halls.
The first of many teasers that were released was the first chapter of the novel. Not long after that, the second chapter was also released. You can find both of those chapters HERE (Click “Read an excerpt).
The other teasers that were released were quotes from the book itself. This one is from the character of Lenobia who is the equestrian teacher.
“You have to love and be true to yourself before anyone else can love and be true to you”
The next one is a poem that Aphrodite, the groups prophetess, heard in one of her prophetic visions.
“With great power comes great responsibilities
Weigh the pleasure of leadership and luxary with the sword Damocles.
When she believes the ancient is the key to all her needs
Then is when all will tumble down; then is when
Light bleeds and bleeds.”
This one is a conversation between Stark and an unknown character. The last few novels have been switching point of view so it could be anyone, but seeing as the conversation is with Stark it is safe to assume it is Zoey he is talking to.
“’Hey, Aphrodite is one of us, and we’re going to need to stand together and be strong for whatever nastiness Neferet is cooking up.’
‘I know. I was just mostly kidding. Aphrodite’s a b****, but she’s our b****,’ Stark said.
I laughed. ‘Exactly.’”
Revealed is set to be released October 16, 2013.
