Neferet's Curse (House of Night Novellas #3) P.C. & Kristin Cast

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 vampire and brought to the Chicago House of Night, where she begins a magical 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...

My Summary…
Neferet’s Curse is the 3rd novella based on the “House of Night” series.  This novella gives us an insight about the Dark High Priestess.  Emily Wheiler’s story was amazingly crafted with in-depth views of what her life was before she was turned.
It was an added bonus to have visuals throughout the book.  I believe fans of HON and Neferet will enjoy and appreciate this novella. 

My Thoughts…
I am not a big fan of Neferete on the HON series but this novella was important to have a glimpse at her past and what has triggered her character in the present.
Once again PC Cast does not disappoint.  As a fan of the series I am grateful for every bit I get to know this world.  Neferet is a fascinating character and not matter how badly you think you know her this story will compel you to read more. 
Your childhood or pretty much your upbringing will help build your character in the future and Neferet certainly had a complicated childhood.  I cannot wait to read more about the HON Series and it’s characters in the future.  And hey what about the movie?
