"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.."--… (mer)

The tragic beginning of Neferet's story. It was hard to read at times, other times I just wanted the train wreck to happen already. I did appreciate lelarning a part of what drives Neferet to evil but I hope that someone could not become evil because evil was done to that person.

Yes, after reading this novella, I do have more compassion for Neferet and what she becomes ... I can also see how what she becomes is what she, more or less, always was, she just fully accepts it as she ages, which is more or less terrifying to see ... how easily it is to just accept the Darkness.

Good book. ( )

It’s time for another short story in the House of Night series to give terrible back story no-one asked for and manage to make already terrible things worse

Now, on the plus side this book does have a very haunting depiction of abuse and sexual assault and rape within the family, especially back in such an utterly patriarchal era where women are constantly abused and demeaned as hysterical and nonsensical and not to be trusted to look after themselves. Emily, who will become Neferet, is utterly helpless and with very few avenues to actually escape.

That includes being ruthless and hurting people she considers friends because she just has so few avenues that she has to take any to actually free herself and protect herself.

Of course, that desperation is kind of undermined by the fact that Emily is not exactly a nice person anyway. I don’t entirely disagree with this, the idea that she would have been a saint before becoming Neferet would be ridiculous. At the same time she is a woman of her time – and is unlikely to care over much about the poor she would consider beneath her beyond a kind of demeaning pity (of course, she doesn’t even manage that). To the surprise of no-one, this book fails to draw the line between depicting bigotry and challenging bigotry, like so many other books

I truly liked this insight into how Neferet came to be like she is. While it's true she had gone through horrors in her past, the book really drove home how our choices can define us. In addition to the story, I was impressed with the author's note at the end. If anyone was going through anything similar, I feel they'd have found comfort in that last page. Great writing Ms. Cast!
