Happily Ever Endings... Destined by PC & Kristin Cast



Happily Ever Endings... was born out of sheer frustration. You know how when you read a series and you love it but the last book takes a little while to come out and then you sort of forget parts of the novel? That's what these posts are going to serve to remedy. Happily Ever Ending... is a short post about what happened at the ending of each book that is going to be in a series for people who need a quick reminder of what happened in the previous installment. It's really annoying when you can't remember what happens and don't have time for a reread, so this hopefully will be a huge help!

Destined (House of Night, #9)Synopsis from Goodreads: In Destined, the forces of Light and Dark collide as their epic struggle focuses on Tulsa's House of Night. Zoey is home where she belongs, safe with her Guardian Warrior, Stark, by her side and preparing to face off against Neferet. Kalona has released his hold on Rephaim, and, through Nyx's gift of a human form, he and Stevie Rae are finally able to be together if Rephaim can truly walk the path of the Goddess and stay free of his father's shadow. 

But is Zoey really safe? Does she truly know those who are closest to her? And will love win when it is tested by the very soul of Darkness? Find out what s destined in the next thrilling chapter of the House of Night series.

Happily Ever Ending: Zoey's mum is dead. Neferet has a new consort, called Aurox, who is a human boy who changes into the white bull. Rephaim has enrolled at the House of Night and is struggling to fit in, as Raven Mockers had visited him to try and convince him to come back to Kalona, and noone believes him when he says he's not working with them. A new fledgling is Marked by Erik - the new tracker - but instead of being Marked with a blue crescent, she is Marked with a red crescent. Shaylin, the new fledgling can see auras - she has the True Sight.

The twins fall out - Shaunee connects with Rephaim because she has problems with her father too - and Erin gets annoyed because even though they were meant to be 'twins', Shaunee didn't tell her. Shaunee wants to go and live back at the House of Night and Erin refuses to go with her.

Destined (House of Night Series #9)Later on in the book, the Nerd Herd and Thanatos - who has a death affinity - decide to do a ritual at the lavender farm where Zoey's mother died to find out what actually happened. However, Aphrodite has a vision, where she see Rephaim being sliced in half by Dragon, so Dragon is not allowed to come, as he may be making connections and allies with Darkness, because of how Rephaim killed his love, Anastasia, in the previous book. But, Dragon sees the Nerd Herd plotting something and he looks up Zoey's home address (the lavender farm) and follows them.

Neferet could feel something in the Darkness, because it was uncomfortable, so once she worked out what was going on, she sends some Darkness to kill Zoey, because she had originally sent Aurox but he was disobeying her. Aurox is hiding in the shadows and deciding to disobey Neferet and not stop the ritual because he feels he shouldn't, when Darkness slides its tendrils round him and forces him to turn into the white bull and charge at Rephaim. Dragon then bursts out from where he was hiding in the shadows, and instead of Aurox plunging his horn into Rephaim's chest, he plunges it into Dragon's, and of course, Dragon dies instantly. Then Zoey sees the shadow of Heath's soul inside of Aurox and she protects him so he can't be killed.

Now, Neferet's power and title as High Priestess has finally been stripped away, and Thanatos becomes the new High Priestess of Tulsa House of Night. Kalona, who had appeared some time during the ritual, steps up to Thanatos and pledges his oath to become Thanatos Warrior, and she accepts.

  1. What a great idea! And exactly what I needed! Especially with this series, because I just forgot everything, but didn't want to reread the last book, lazy me ;). I kinda gave up on this series, because Awakened was such a big disappointment. But I love the idea of this post!

Synopsis from Goodreads:Elektra James is back and her life is more hilariously chaotic than ever!

Elektra is hoping for BIG things this year... She's finished her first feature film (even if her character was unexpectedly killed off half-way through filming), hosted the party of the year (well, before her mum arrived and threw everyone out - how embarrassing!) and managed to become Archie Mortimer's Actual Real Life girlfriend (for now anyway...), so things are most definitely moving in the right direction. But with social media…

SERIES REVIEW: The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Hello! Welcome to my appreciation post for one of my favourite series - The Illuminae Files!

This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do.

This afternoon, her planet was invaded.

The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to fight their way onto one of the evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit.

But their problems are just getting started. A deadly plague has broken out and is mutating, with terrifying results…
