James Stark is a sexy sixth former that prefers to be called Stark. He named himself in honor of James Dean's character, James Stark, from Rebel without a Cause. He first appeared in Untamed when Stark transfers into the Tulsa House of Night from Chicago's House of Night. He has an instant connection with Zoey, but that connection is broken when his body rejects the Change and he dies shortly after their first real conversation. However Zoey, knowing that he may return, attempts to revive him before Neferet, until she is distracted by the near death of her Grandmother. Stark is well known in the vampyre community for his archery skills; despite being a fledgling, he placed first in the "Summer Games"--the vampyre version of the Olympics—ahead of full grown vampyres previous to his introduction to Zoey. Stark's skill comes from his affinity for extreme accuracy and potency, allowing him to never miss his target and making him lethal with a bow and arrow. He admits to Zoey that he accidentally killed his archery mentor with his powerful gift before he understood his power, he kept his gift a secret because he believed his gift was not good and dangerous, he does not want to hurt the people he loves just by misunderstanding his thoughts and aiming at someone else. Zoey and Stark kiss while she holds him as he dies, and that is when she tells him that he will be brought back to life. At the very end of Untamed, he returns as an undead minion of Neferet's, attempting to call Zoey back as she flees. Neferet tells him he can have his heart's desire if he does as she says. He then shoots an arrow into Stevie Rae's chest with Neferet's command, and her blood is used to resurrect an ancient evil, Kalona. Although Zoey's friends believe that Stark is evil, he really is not, because he still does have part of his humanity and doesn't kill Stevie Rae, which he easily could have with his gift. During Hunted, Zoey tries to make Stark see, just like she did with Stevie Rae, that he can choose his humanity over being a monster. Even in his 'undead' state, Zoey still finds herself falling for him, and tries to help him. Eventually, Stark chooses good over evil, and pledges himself as a Warrior to Zoey, which is a very powerful oath that can only be broken by death or release by the High Priestess. In doing this, he becomes a red vampyre with marks resembling arrows, and turns away from Neferet and Kalona. Neferet tells him to shoot an arrow into Zoey's heart, it is then that he realizes he loves her but just doesn't want to say it then, he remembers an earlier conversation with Zoey in which she claims to have given him her heart when they were bound by the warrior's oath. He then shoots the arrow aiming it at where Zoey's heart truly is (him). Zoey figures this out just in time and calls the elements and 'flings' their protective powers at Stark just before the arrow makes it to him, which leaves him laying on the ground and bruised by the power of the elements. After Kalona is gone, Zoey walks over to where Stark's body is, and when she touches him, although he is bruised and scarred he is very much alive.In Tempted Stark and Zoey are in love but neither say so. It is an obvious relationship between the two teenagers. But it is very obvious that Stark is trying not to show his true feelings for Zoey, because he just wants to be the very best Warrior he can be. At the end of Tempted, Stark gets mad at Zoey and walks away, but then Heath overhears a conversation between Kalona and Neferet; Kalona gets mad and he kills Heath. Stark sees Zoey trying to save him but her soul shatters, and Stark starts to cry because he felt her soul shatter, and he thinks that she's dead. In the end it's clear he is in love with Zoey so it's assumed that Stark plans to save her. In Burned, Stark wanted to get Zoey back, though her soul was shattered. He needed to get to the Otherworld, but did not know any way without dying. However, with Zoey's friends' help, Stark found out one way to go to the Otherworld without dying - the Isle of Women. According to Darkness, which Stevie Rae accidentally evoked, "The Warrior must look to his blood to discover the bridge to enter the Isle of Women, and then he must defeat himself to enter the arena. Only by acknowledging one before the other will he join his Priestess. After he joins her, it is her choice and not his whether she returns." Stark, along with the help of his friends, solved the puzzle. The bridge of blood is his last name, Macuallis, and he defeated himself when he entered the Otherworld, which he managed to get to with the help of the Queen of Isle of Women, Sgiach, an her Guardian, Seoras. But when Seoras and the queen asks stark why he loves Zoey He says "because i love her". So it is given in the story what Stark's feelings are, all they have to do is say them. When stark got to the otherworld stark became face to face with himself (his bad warrior self) and he has to defeat the warrior inside of him in order to become a shaman. In the end he did defeat himself then, he found Zoey, but also Kalona. Stark then realized what he had to do in order to save Zoey which was to stall Kalona long enough for Zoey to pull herself back together but,Stark was killed by Kalona in a battle in the arena in the Otherworld, but in sight of her Guardian's fight for her, Zoey pulled herself together. Zoey demanded Kalona to give Stark's life back, and Nyx supported her. Kalona did, as a sign of respecting and obeying the goddess. At the end of the book, Zoey and Stark both returned to the real world. Stark was brought back when Zoey kiss him and whisper something to him. And Nyx's voice rang loud and clear, "...it's not all over. It's just beginning."
