Review

Praise for the House of Night series:

On TEMPTED, House of Night Book 6:

“Cast and Cast pull out all the stops and take this story to shattering new heights with devastating consequences!” Romantic Times (4 ½ stars)

“P. C. And Kristin Cast havef made an absolutely amazing [YA] series. The visuals offered by this fantastic duo are entertaining and imaginative, with nonstop action… This is easily a [YA] series that can entertain adults with action, hot Vampyres, true friendship, budding romance, a loving Goddess, and a twist of the unexpected.” –HowlingGoodBooks.com (5 stars)

“I loved every one of the books in the [House of Night] series. Tempted is my definite favorite…. This book had me ripping through the pages.” –Teen review on Flamingnet.com

On HUNTED, House of Night Book 5:

“Move over, Stephenie Meyer.”People

“Zoey Redbird’s first-person adventures take on added danger and importance in the latest House of Night release. Forced by circumstance to grow up quickly, Zoey’s emotional and spiritual evolution is fascinating. The Cast duo breathes life and vibrancy into the characters and makes each one an integral part of the saga. Awesome and unforgettable as always!” --Romantic Times (4.5 stars)

“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) 

“The most masterful part of the writing lies in how the authors take on serious issues sex, peer pressure, bullying, parental alienation, religion, and substance abuse and weave them into the text.  It is a refreshing perspective that doesn’t feel like preaching.” –Tulsa World

“I absolutely loved this book…. I enjoyed the story line very much and thought that the authors had correctly portrayed the mind of a teenager…. I would recommend this book to vampyre fans and anyone who would enjoy a wondrous fantasy story.” –Teen review on Flamingnet.com

“An exceptional vampire tale… P.C. and Kristin Cast do a phenomenal job.” –Darquereviews.com

“Hunted is an appealing supernatural thriller… The exciting storyline is filled with teenage angst as Zoey struggles with choices that would cause PTSD in most adults…. This fine entry casts a strong spell on readers.” –Thebestreviews.com

“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 for Untamed, House of Night Book 4:

“You have a set up that feels a bit like X-Men meets Harry Potter meets Interview with the Vampire all told in a voice as engaging and spirited as anything recounted by Meg Cabot.” – JanuaryMagazine.com

“This is a series that should not be missed!”  – EnchantingReviews.com

“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

“The mother and daughter writing team have created a believable world with characters that you can't let go of. The story is addictive and the cliffhanger ending in this installment has me wishing the months till March will fly by! The fifth book Haunted will surely be another great book in this amazing series.”  –ParaNormalRomance.org

On Chosen, House of Night Book 3:

“Teenage issues can seem like life or death, but in this haunting series, House of Night, that’s really the case. Through Zoey’s eyes readers are led into a world that’s getting more complicated by the minute, where friends and enemies can switch positions in a heartbeat. The remarkable Cast duo continues to build a world that you won’t soon forget!” –Romantic Times (4.5 stars)

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

On Betrayed, House of Night Book 2:

“The Cast and Cast team is back and stirring up deep trouble in their beguiling supernatural world….The issues faced by these teens are not child's play, and the stakes are life and death. This is extremely craveable reading!” –Romantic Times (4.5 stars)

“Some would find it hard to write the sequel to a great book like Marked, but the Cast women obviously didn't have that problem. I laughed, sighed, and definitely cried. I thought that I knew where this series was headed but the authors took me completely by surprise. Congrats to P.C. and Kristin Cast, on a fantastic job. Bring on Chosen!” Night Owl Romance Reviews

“It does not matter if you are male or female, this series will enthrall you…Authors P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast are a dangerous writing duo with poisonous pens. Highly recommended.” –Huntress 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

“P.C. and Kristin Cast make a fantastic writing team.  This enchanting tale is filled with non-stop action, strong relationships, and sweet blossoming romance.  Whether you’re a teen or an adult who loves a great paranormal read, this is a series not to be missed.” –Darque 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)

On Marked, House of Night Book 1:

“Zoey Redbird… is basically the most relatable vampire — sorry, fledgling vampyre — I've ever read about.” –MTV.com

“The Casts have put a very interesting new spin on vampire lore. The action is fast paced and absorbing, interspersing light moments among the intensity. When you reach the climax of the tale, you'll be on the edge of your seat. Though this is labeled a young adult novel, I strongly suspect adults of any age will enjoy it.” –Huntress.com

“The Casts, mother and daughter, have written a delightful book that’s aimed at teens but will be enjoyed by readers of all ages. The trials of growing up are presented in the new and original context of a vampire society, and they’re woven into a thoroughly entertaining story. Zoey is a dynamic and spunky heroine who has an amusing and realistic voice. She’s surrounded by secondary characters who are just as engaging. The dialogue is sharp and the references to real people and pop culture add to the story. This promises to be a highly addictive series.” –Romantic Times (4.5 stars)

“A fantastic, fun-paced read.” –RomanceJunkies.com

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

“Readers will identify with many of the characters, especially the protagonist … A good choice for those libraries serving fans of the occult…” –Library Journal

“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

“Cast reeled me in from paragraph one.  I snorted and giggled through the whole thing, and devoured it in one sitting.”  –MaryJanice Davidson, New York Times best-selling author of the Undead series

Format: Hardcover
I am not in the target audience, but have read this series with an open mind. Although written for the young adult, I am suprised that more readers are not disappointed in the direction this series is taking. I am a very liberal, very open minded adult, but the main character Zoey is a young woman, who in my opinion, does not reflect even basic self-respecting ideals.

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.

Format: Hardcover
Zoey Redbird's soul has shattered. As her friends watch over her mortal body (which is now devoid of all tattoos), Zoey's soul drifts in the Otherworld. Unless Zoey can face what has happened, pull her shattered pieces back together, and return to her body within seven days, it will be forever too late.

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.

*** THREE STARS! Though P.C.

"Kalona lifted his hands. He didn't hesitate. There was no doubt whatsoever in his mind about what he had to do."

Zoey Redbird's soul has shattered. The fledgling High Priestess is trapped in the Otherworld and is slowly losing herself, piece by piece. Zoey's broken heart is making it difficult for her to return to her friends, and they are in desperate need of her help.

Neferet is worming her way into the Vampyre High Council, and there is little to be done about it. The remaining teachers at the House of Night are loyal to Zoey and know that Neferet is attempting to become the Tsi Sgili, allowing evil to follow in her wake. Zoey's friends are also trying to help; Stark, Aphrodite, Stevie Rae, and all the rest, but they, too, are dealing with problems of their own.

Stevie Rae, who was almost murdered by a rogue group of red fledglings, has imprinted with a raven-mocker; Aphrodite is still trying to make sense of how/why Nyx has gifted her with Sight, but taken away her vampyre abilities; and now Stark, Zoey's Warrior, must kill part of himself to save the only thing he will ever love.

The Cast duo has once again created an excellent addition to the HOUSE OF NIGHT series. This novel is especially telling, because the chapters are told from each character's perspective. It's nice to see the story develop from many points of view, rather than having a single narrator. Each character's voice is distinct, unique, and that's what makes these novels special.

Just as with the last six novels, this one will leave you wanting more. Fear not, dear reader! The eighth installment of the series, entitled AWAKENED, will be revealed soon enough!
