We are nearing the end of the House of Night series and slowly we are learning how things came to be in this world. Kalona’s Fall is a novella based on the dark winged immortal, Kalona, who first appeared in book four, Untamed, as Neferet’s consort.
So much has happened in Zoey Redbird’s world over the past few years and Kalona has a major role in that. He as grown from the first time he appeared in the series and if have been keeping up with the series you know that he now pledged himself back in the path of the Goddess Nyx. He has even gone out of his way to help Zoey and the rest of her circle as well as the school.
Kalona’s fall gives us insight on how the world came to be. It reminds me of the stories of mythology. The story begins of how the world was created and how Nyx was created. In time Kalona and Erebus are created and then, where this all began, how the vampyres were created.
In KALONA’S FALL, the shadows in Kalona’s past will finally come to light… We will learn about the winged immortal’s secret history and discover how he went from being the Goddess’s Warrior and Guardian to her enemy and betrayer. Did Darkness taint Kalona as it did Neferet, or has the powerful immortal always preferred power over honor, and control over faith?
I was more excited for this novella than I was of any of the others. They were all very interesting and helped enhance our reading experience but this one has a deeper meaning to it. Kalona has been changing in the series. His former self is finally emerging but we didn’t really know much about him except all the horrible things he has done. He is on his path to forgiveness and knowing his entire story is important for that closure.
This novella is amazing! I can say with complete honesty it is the best one out all four novellas. I couldn’t put it down and ended up reading it in one sitting in a matter of two hours. It didn’t take much to pull me back into the world of night and I can tell you I have missed it.
Unfortunately, the series is slowly coming to an end. The last novel in the series, Redeemed, is being released on October 14, 2014.
In the final electrifying novel in the HoN series, Neferet has finally made herself known to mortals. A Dark Goddess is loose on Tulsa and the world. No single vampyre is strong enough to vanquish her – unless that creature has the power to summon the elements as well as the ability to wield Old Magick. Only Zoey Redbird is heir to such power…but because of the consequences of using Old Magick, she is unable to help. Find out who will win and who will lose in this epic battle of Light versus Darkness.
That is only a mere twenty days away. There still enough time to read Kalona’s Fall before that day and it is recommended that you do because it is a lead-in to the last book.
