Format: Hardcover
The third A House of Night novella focuses on Neferet's past life in the year 1893 before she was Marked. She was born as Emily Wheiler and at the age on sixteen-years-old she became the Lady of Wheiler House after her mother passed away. She doesn't have much time to mourn as her father, a powerful bank president, demands that she take over late mother's responsibilities, such as planning parties, approving of the dinner menus, being a good hostess and running the household.

She accepts herself as her mother's replacements and hopes that she would become closer to her somewhat estranged father, but she soon realizes that any type of relationship with her father would never happen. At times Emily attempts to hang out with her childhood friends, but her father objects to childish ways. He won't even let her ride her bicycle, which he demands to have remove from the property.

Unexpectedly, she falls in love with a young man that she meets at one of her father's parties, but her father once again objects to her having any type of a life, he even becomes violent. Situations occur that leads her to becoming Marked by a vampyre. She leaves the Wheiler House and is brought to the Chicago House of Night where her destiny as Neferet begins.

I wasn't too thrilled about the newest prequel novella being about Neferet, the main villain from the series, but I was instantly hooked into her story as Emily Wheiler, the Lady of the Wheiler House. She was actually a caring human being who had to deal with the cruelty from her father. With an intriguing plot and great illustrations, I read the book in one sitting. I now have a new respect for Neferet, even though she is still evil. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed reading Neferet's Curse.

Note - I received a free copy in exchange for my honest review.

The best, because I do love the villains and reading about them is always a treat. I never thought I would feel sorry for Neferet, but here I am. I think this is my favorite mini novel.

The worst, because I saw what was going to happen coming and knew that it would deal with subject material that would make me squirm. I totally get how someone could go off the deep end from this. I wonder if there will be any redemption for Neferet?

Neferet's Curse is one of those books you see from afar and are magically drawn to. Running your fingers over the beautiful dust jacket and feeling the need to read it, all at once. That is exactly what I did too. This book is smaller than a typical book and maybe that is what makes it stand apart, particularly since it is written in journal style.
"`He had made it clear that I am trapped to be his slave and his imaginary wife!' I'd Shouted `The only time for myself I can manage are the few minutes I steal with you, and the time I spend in Mother's garden- and then only at night...'"
This book is part of a series, and the third installment to The House of Night Novellas and an easy stand alone. The year is Eighteen Hundred Ninety Three and fifteen year old Emily watches as her mother's life quickly escapes her during child birth with her last words of her mother's ingrained into her memory. Emily mourns through her sixteenth birthday, withering away to nothing when her father finally lays a firm hand down and demands she straighten up her act and she quickly resumes the role of her mother as Lady of the house, a daunting task wearing thin on the young girl. That is until she meets a handsome guy that her father forbids she see; or any man for that matter, unleashing a violent side that even startles him. Afraid for her life and on the run, she is absorbed into the Vampyre life where she learns a whole new world awaits her.
What are you waiting for? This read is everything you have been looking for!

This latest HON novella tells the story of Emily Wheiler, the girl who will one day be Neferet. Everything changes for Emily when her mother dies. Trying to take on her mother's duties isn't the easiest and neither is dealing with her cruel father. She eventually is Marked and is accepted at the House of Night in Chicago. The revenge she sets out to enact will ultimately put her on a dangerous path.

I'm sure this goes for other readers of the series... but Neferet is not my favorite character in the House of Night. So, going into this book I wasn't expecting to like it much. But your heart goes out to Emily. Because of her mother dying, Emily is put in an impossible position by her father. He is demanding, cruel and quite creepy. The violence she endures at the hands of her father, changes her forever. It's no wonder that she turned out like she did.

Neferet's Curse was an excellent read, a fast read/listen. I loved the insight we were given on the character. I felt sad for Emily/Neferet and in the end I believe her revenge is justified. It explains a lot of things about Neferet. Really the only thing this book is lacking is more story, I would have like to know more about Neferet's time at the Chicago House of Night. Regardless of that, this is a must read for fans of the series.
