Review

Praise for The House of Night:

 

“Move over, Stephenie Meyer.” –People on Hunted

“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) on Hunted

“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 

“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) on Chosen

This highly addicting series offers a unique twist on the standard vampyre story....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
 

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

 
“Readers will identify with many of the characters, especially the protagonist.” –Library Journal on Marked

Format: Hardcover
Hunted is, without question, a great addition to the House of Night collection. I was waiting and waiting for this newest book to be released and devoured it in one day. The story is good and the characters are vibrant and involved. The only complaints I have are:
a) How much longer are they going to have Zoey ALWAYS having 3 boyfriends. It's quite unrealistic and a bit over the top.
b) I wish the story would move faster or be longer to cover more ground. The further I get into the series, the slower time passes. I understand that a lot is going on, but it would be great to see the characters meeting challenges through the years as they go through their schooling at House of Night. I think this latest book only covered less than a week of time.
c) It's poorly edited. Lots of word mistakes...ie. calling grandma Redbird Stevie-Ray's grandma instead of Zoey's. Missing words and poor grammar. I think it's just because they are trying to get these books out so quickly that some things fall through the cracks, but it throws you off when you're really getting into the story and pulls you out of the moment.

Those things aside, Hunted is a great read and fits in well with the rest of the series for writing style and flow. Overall a good story, and I am looking forward to Tempted - coming out later this year.

I really like this series and with the way the last book ended I expected that Hunted would have a lot more action to the story. With Kalona being set free and Neferet turning her back on the Goddess, I thought there would be an all out vampire war with Zoey's camp vs. Kalona and Neferet. That didn't happen; the story wasn't exciting and felt more like set up book for things to come.

Also, Zoey has way too many guys in her life and it's just getting more and more complicated. I was so frustrated with Zoey in this book. She can't make up her mind and add to the fact that she has feelings for each of the guys. She has a human consort (Heath), vampire mate (Erik), sworn protector (Stark) and Kalona who sees Zoey as the reincarnation of his lost love. I feel like Zoey's boyfriend issue is just dragged over from book to book and I can't wait till it's finally resolved.

As you can tell from this review, I was not a fan of this book but will probably continue with series just because I've read so many of the books already and I want to know how the story will progress.

Format: Hardcover
Two blood-spilling attacks equal two bodies dangerously close to death. One results in unprecedented access to Red Vampyre psyche; the other prompts Zoey and friends to return to a drone-like House of Night to avoid another fledgling death.

Kalona, convinced that Zoey is his reincarnated soul mate, pursues her in the flesh and through her dreams. Zoey fights to overcome the magical-inflicted attraction she has for this demon so she can focus her energy on defeating him and Neferet.

Other naturally occurring romantic problems bud once again, but are ignored for the time being as Zoey tries to sort out other gut-alarming inconsistencies she senses in actions of friends and foes.

When I started to read this series, I hoped it would go on forever, but now, I'm not so sure: This book, while entertaining, did not satisfy. It, like the last two, felt like a set-up for the next installment, with no real climax ever occurring. I hope the authors make up for this style of writing by pulling together all of the captivating threads they've left hanging for one doozy of a conclusion that ends this particular string of the character's adventures.

I loved the other four in the series of House of Night, and i liked this one as well. But certain things were a bit annoying for me. Like Zoey having boy trouble... she keeps thinking how she should have only one bf, and how its so horrible to use the other guys (Heath, Eric) but then goes and makes out w/ other guys (not Heath and Eric). This was in the third book also, when she slept w/ the poet guy. I was so annoyed, cause honestly, the guys she dates are such nice guys, like they are so in love with her, and she's causing them pain all the time. Even though i understand that as High Priestess she's allowed or its typical to have many lovers... but she's not even a turned vampire yet. This book also focused too much on sexual themes, there seemed to be sex and rape in every chapter. There wasnt that much of this before in earlier books, it was nicely balanced. Even in the third book, it seemed more innocent and just making out (except for one sex part); here it just got out of control for me. There wasnt that much that went on in this book too. There was way too much talking, and not much action. If this book was made into a movie, there would be three sets and thats it! Tunnels under the depot, House of Night, and 10 min. at the church in the end. But i really like the series, so i did read the entire book fast; but the other ones were a lot more interesting. Neferet is getting so annoying. The only character who i thought was interesting was Stark, since i wanted to know what was going to happen to him. I really hope the next one will be more twisted with lots of "oh my gosh!" points.
