“The Cast duo has done it again! These ladies appear to be an unstoppable force within the world of YA literature… Teenage readers will be drawn to Zoey's everyday, angst-riddled life. Not only does she need to save the world, Zoey needs to solve some major vampyre/human boy drama. These stories are surreal, yet shockingly accurate when it comes to teenagers and their lives.” ―TeensReadToo.com (5 stars) on Hunted

“A richly nuanced standout… Even when she's confused, even when she's embroiled in teen-angst, Zoey's choices, delivered in fresh first person, seem believable. Even better? They seem smart…. This series has dark themes and subject matter, but the Cast team delivers them with sparkling dialogue, wry humor, and realistic characters driven by genuine humanity.” ―Fictionistas.blogspot.com on Hunted
“Untamed is a fast moving and adventure filled read, with engaging characters and just a touch of romantic chemistry to keep fans guessing. This is a well-written young adult series that should easily appeal to both teens and adults.” ―Darque Reviews
“Chosen, The House of Night series book 3, is like the cream in an Oreo cookie holding the two ends together. This story is gearing up for the final showdown between Zoey and Nepheret and mother and daughter team, P.C. and Kristen Cast are setting the stage perfectly for this….Again, P.C. Cast is an auto-buy author for me and this series is also on that auto-buy list.” ―Paranormal Romance Reviews
“Betrayed continues the House of Night series in a chilling fashion. PC and Kristin Cast once again prove their talent in telling a tale filled with all the normal teenage angst compounded with becoming a Vampyre….If you liked the first book in the series, you'll love this one!” ―Paranormal Romance Reviews
“This highly addicting series offers a unique twist on the standard vampyre story and is sure to please a wide variety of readers. Although she is a vampyre, Zoey Redbird’s journey is one for every teen. Her voice is genuine and … captures the sincerity and frankness of a teenager in search of a new home and a place where she truly belongs. The emotional portrayal of Zoey’s trouble and tribulations enhances the quality of these books. True to life, she struggles with issues of truest, loyalty, love, sexuality, and identity and moves though a myriad of conflicting emotions from happiness to confusion to grief. These books will have the reader laughing hysterically and sobbing unreservedly―sometimes all at once.” ―VOYA (on both Marked and Betrayed)
“Marked is one of the best coming of age stories to come out of Oklahoma since S. E. Hinton's The Outsiders. It teaches about the beauty of being a social outcast, friendship, and finding your own inner spirituality.” ―The Beltane Papers
“From the moment I stuck my face in this book it hooked me! Totally awesome new take on vampires! Marked is hot and dark and funny. It rocks!” ―Gena Showalter, author of MTV's Oh My Goth

She is not a good role model for any young woman, and her lifestyle choices from the previous novels, including sex with an adult professor, using another male for blood sustenance, and dragging 2 other "boys" around by a proverbial "leash", while, making judgement calls against her friends, does not sit well. I was hoping the Cast women would direct Zoey into a more monogamous relationship, rather than a 3 way tease fest. This series is targeted at young adults and mostly young girls. My teenage niece read this series and she said that a girl in high school, who is as sexually promiscuous as Zoey, and one who leads around 3 boys at a time would earn a reputation that would probably stay with her the rest of her life, and I think I would agree.
Hopefully, PC and Kristin will continue with the adventures of Zoey and her pals, but perhaps realize that Zoey's life choices may be questionnable. A 16 year old girl should not be having sex with an adult professor or leading 3 boys with sexually suggestive behaviour. Even poor Eric, although somewhat jealous of Zoey's friendship with other boys, still had every reason to be upset with Zoey. One does not profess your love to someone then go off with 3 other "boys" for sustenance, sex or sleeping company.
Just a thought to the authors, but perhaps Zoey could become a little less promiscuous and a little more selective with her choices.
James Stark is Zoey's Guardian. He is the only living person who can reach her. However, the only way is for the Warrior in him to die so that the Shaman in ham can come forth. (Translation: Stark's body must remain on the edge of death so his soul may travel into the Otherworld to find and rescue Zoey.) Once there, Stark finds that Zoey is not alone. Heath Luck is with her. Worse, Neferet has Kalona's body tied up with Darkness and Kalona's spirit is also in the Otherworld. And unless Kalona kills Zoey (or simply keeps Zoey's soul from returning to her body in time), his immortal soul would become Neferet's to control and use.
Meanwhile, it has only been two days since Stevie Rae had almost been burned/killed by the rogue red fledglings at the depot. Stevie Rae has decided that it is time for her and her group of good red fledglings to take back their depot home. But unknown to her followers, Stevie Rae has saved the life of Rephaim, who is the son of Kalona. No one who sees Rephaim could ever mistake this creature as being human. He has the body of a human, black wings, the head of a raven, and the eyes of a human. Rephaim has vowed to stay with Stevie Rae until she tells him to leave. Should her fledglings learn of Stevie Rae's friendship with the Raven Mocker or that they share an Imprint, it could spell disaster.

Accordance to legend and the handbook when a High Priestess has a trauma experience happen to her (like watching your human boyfriend get murder in front of you) your soul can shatter. This is not necessarily a death sentence, but as close as one can get. The High Priestess is sent over to the other world when her soul shattered, also called their goddess’s realm. It is the High Priestess job to accept the pieces of her soul back, and find her way back to her body. The problem is generally the High Priestess do not want to be put back together again. And after watching Heath die, Zoey does not blame them. How can she go back to the land of living if Heath is not there anymore? How can she leave him dead alone in the other-world while she goes back on with her life? Zoey has to choose between getting her soul back together and fighting darkness, or staying in the other world with Heath for eternity.
“It’s my fault” is the only thing Stark can think. And it in a way, it is true. He was Zoey’s warrior, and left her during that moment because of his jealousy. Him leaving was what got Heath killed and Zoey shattered. Now it is up to Stark to save Zoey.Read more ›
