"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."--Provided by publisher.

I chose this book as a side story as the first book in the main series wasnt available. I hated the ending, it absolutely crushed me. But it definitely intrigued me enough to wait for the main line.

NEFERET'S past becomes her present..The dark side of her father that she inherited overshadows the good side of her mother. She will do anything to get what she wants no matter who gets hurt along the way. No wonder she became the high and mighty priestess of the House of Night .

This dark book about Neferets past was very intriguing. I understand why she turned evil and how she is which fills in all the holes that were missing in the series.

Neferet's past is finally revealed. This book gave insight into why Neferet's evil. She didn't become completely evil overnight, the book showed that she had a manipulative side and would do what she had to in order to get what she wanted. All the House of Night novellas are great. I wonder who the next one will be about.

I can't believe that this is Neferet's story. Now, I kind of understand more than before. Her character was a survivor and risked everything to survive. The plot of the book was attention grabbing. After the House of Night series, I now have more respect for her. I can't wait to read the other novellas.
