The series starts out with following Zoey as she enters the House of Night and struggles to fit in and make friends with the other fledglings. She soon learns that the goddess Nyx, goddess of vampyres, has a special place in her heart for Zoey and is determined to let everybody know it. Zoey is quickly becoming the most hated and loved freak in the school. With each brave task she accomplishes, like helping Aphrodite when she released evil onto the world, she earns a new tattoo, a sign of Nyx. Having become the youngest high priestess at the House of Night Zoey is faced with even more challenges. Nepheret the current high priestess isn’t happy the goddess favors Zoey over her. She has fallen to evil and will do whatever it takes to take Zoey out of the picture. Nepheret raises an evil that Zoey’s ancestors trapped away centuries ago. With the threat Nepheret and Kalona face on the world it’s up to Zoey and her friends to rid the world of Nepheret and possibly Kalona too.Burned is the seventh book in the House of Night Series. Beginning where book six ends, Zoey’s soul has shattered and has been sent to the Otherworld, Nyx’s domain, where she will remain unless she can piece herself back together and find a way back to her body. This book follows the point of view through Kalona, Aphrodite, Zoey, Heath, Stark, Stevie Rae, and Rephaim as they struggle to come to terms with the events before them. Heath struggles to help Zoey remember who she is while roaming the Otherworld.

Aphrodite helps Stark and the rest of Zoey’s friends find a way to bring her back from the Otherworld. They are taken to a forbidden island where Stark’s loyalty to Zoey is challenged. While all this is happening on the Island Stevie Rae is back near the House of Night trying to bring the red fledgling’s to order, helping with Zoey as much as she can, and sorting out her feelings for Rephiam and sort of boyfriend Dallas.
