Description of the Book: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..
Pre-Read: I’ve always wanted to know why Nefriet is so freaking Evil!
- Awe I want to cry it’s so sad
- Her dad gives me the creeps
- Awe she’s in like
Wow that story makes me angry. For a girl’s father to so such things. For her beloved to just abandon her like it was nothing. I feel heart-broken for Neferet she is truly is cursed because she never learned how to forgive. She held onto the pain of her past. I can now understand why she’s the way she is. This is a heartbreaking novella with a lot of pain and sorrow. You can see the loss and the pain that Neferet went through. I think this is an emotional book that was a sad but exciting read. I recommend it to all House of Night fans. If you want to understand Neferet on a deeper level.
