I guess it had gone okay with Stevie Rae. I mean, she had agreed to meet me tomorrow.-And she hadn't tried to bite me, which was a plus. Of course, the whote trying-to-eat-the-street-person -thing was highly disturbing... Zoey's best friend, Stevie Rae, is undead in an eww! zombie! kind of way, not in a cool vampyre kind of way. She's struggling to retain her humanity and Zoey doesn't have a clue how to help. But she does know that anything they discover must be kept secret. Unfortunately, trust has become a rare commodity. Sinister forces are at work at the House of Night, where the line between friend and enemy is becoming dangerously blurred.
