This review is from: Burned: A House of Night Novel (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.
