They need to end this series. I loved this series, but the last few books keep dragging. It is time for the final farewell, and the authors really need to step it up for the ending so all of the readers who have lasted this long get the finish they are hoping for and deserve.
This whole book seemed rushed. It seem to lack a great deal of the normal for this series.
While the series in whole is remarkable. This one is lacking so much. I like many can't wait for the next of the House of Night books, and rush to get it soon as I can. Then want to read/listen to it all the way at once.
However, that being said, take your time with this one. As its not so much a novel, but a novelette. Of course there are parts to enjoy, and yes a cliff hanger ending is what one expects in a series. However, this ending felt like it should be the start of the next chapter.
This is a sad edition to the series, I'm not sure if time, or just the desire to get the next book out made a rush job of it. Either way, I expected more.
At this point, I'm really not sure.
Caitlin Davies does wonderful in this one, as she does in all others.
Cut? I'm not sure the book could stand if anyone was cut from it...
I was so disappointed I wanted to cry. After waiting almost 2 years this is what we get? I have really loved the House of Night Series--until this one. Whats up Casts? The story went on and on, almost boring at times. If the ending had been sooner in the story with some of the issues resolved, then we could have looked forward to another great story. Instead you have clearly set up to sell another book, and some of your fans may choose to avoid another disappointment.
I'm truly torn. I had stopped getting excited about the new House Of Night books by book 8 but I can't seem to skip them either. The plots keep dragging on & the characters I had enjoyed so much I now find annoying. However the last 2 chapters made up for the rest being so so. They really ended off on a high note with Neferet finally showing off to everyone how evil and yes, at times how cool she is. It's these kinds of moments that keep me coming back. But so happy there's only one more book left to go.
this book was not what I expected. I feel like I've wasted my time reading all 9 books just for the 10th book to be a let down. I'm mad at zoey n the writers
for the book to continue its natural course. for zoey and her nerd herd conquer all
aurox beer scene!!!
I couldn't stop at the 9th book and just forget the 10th I'm glad I read the book but I wouldn't recommend it
EOD wife and loving mother!!!
Zoey is not the character I thought she was. She has become very annoying. She overreacts over everything. I no longer follow her logic. This was my least favorite book so far:(
This review is what I wrote on Goodreads when the book came out.
I know others have been unhappy w/the series for quite a few books now, but I still managed to enjoy them. That being said it seems virtually nothing of importance happened in this book. Well, there are some that should have been important, but instead of drawing out the suspense & those events were wrapped up so quickly, it makes you wonder why the authors decided to include them. No, they'd much rather have Neferet as the "villain" again & even her actions weren't that exciting & few & far between.
Erin is still ditching here BFF/Twin & the rest of the crew for her BF Dallas. She rejects the change & dies. This should have been a major thing. They just lost one of the members of their perfect elemental circle. Someone who has been with them since day one of the series & it isn't even a life changing moment for them. I mean come of, her twin Shawnee barely even mourns her death. Most people would be beyond devastated if their BFF died before they resolved the boyfriend that drives them apart falling out. They also could have had more of Dallas stalking or whatever in lashing out at everyone, even though he's a "villain", out of losing his GF. They could have had more w/his red vamps vs Stevie Ray's red vamps, but they end it so quickly w/a public execution.
As for Neferet, for this most part she was in a cave regaining herself physically & it goes through memories of her past. Boring for the most part as this book follows the novella of her life. A one that was very sympathetic, at that, so it seems unnecessary to take this route to regain her physical body.
I was reading/listening to the audiobook of this book, as I've been busy w/ school. It literally put me to sleep & took me weeks to get through, lots of rewinding, sometimes after short periods of time, since it seems like I had to have missed something, but sadly, I hadn't.
I'll finish out the series, though it almost seems pointless at this point.
No, I really enjoy this genre.
See my lengthy review in the first section, which I copied from my Goodreads review & forgot to post here as well.
I really hope the writers write a book with some substance & not just release garbage to meet a deadline. It's driving away their fan base.
I regretted buying this audio book rather than reading it first. i love this series but this was just a filler book and a complete let down.
this would not be a book I would want my young reader to be reading. The story is decent and the narrator is good. I only have one suggestion: change up the dialog a little bit. I remember back when I took writing classes, my biggest challenge was to not be repetitive especially when writing about a discussion. Now I understand why. It is very distracting when a conversation goes like this...Zoey said,.....Stark said......Aphrodite said......, Stevie Ray said......... all in one paragraph.
"When will this series finish?"
Unfortunately the characters in this series seem to be battling with life threatening circumstances but where everyone else seems to be growing up, the main character Zoey aka 'Z' is very childish and very annoying. I can't really tell you what relevance this instalment has in the House of Night series because there isn't any. This series needs to end and Zoey needs to grow up as her childish terminology is getting really tiresome.
"A good listen for YA readers"
A good read, well written & preformed, I recommend it to all who enjoy YA novels.
