The last book was not the best but I thought she was building it up for Hunted. But Hunted was worst then the last book. It felt like the book was written by a 12 year old girl. She worried more about her 3 boys then the fallen angel or Neferet. The 2 villians were hardly in it. All they had to do was form a circle and poof the bad guys are gone? Come on.... I know it's written for young adults but I've read many young adult books that are excellent. This was just poorly written.
This was obviously supposed to be a transitional
book but the problem is that it is so hastily
put together that it just ends up being boring
and drawn out. The book goes nowhere fast. Save
your credit this is a waste.
I really loved the first book so I gave the second book a bit of a break. Lots of times the second of three is a bit weaker and builds up to the next one but then I read Hunted. I completely agree with another reviewer that said it was poorly written. So much time was spent recapping old events I beame annoyed and then there was so little plot growth. The villans had great potential but ended up just being a distraction to the main character as she sadly focused on her boy trouble. The angst was even more annoying when the big scenes with her "boys" were peppered with even more recaps of past books. The ending was the worst part and I am so disappointed I think I will just abandon the series and not buy any more. So far all of the actual plot of book 2 and 3 could have been the first half of one book. My recommendation is to go looking for a new series and save your money.
Not only did this book recap 1-4 the Teenage Drama (indecive unexperienced youth) was off the charts. This book is teetering my thoughts of completing the series.
Probably finish out the series then NO!
Sex hungry, vampire wannabe, Zoe Redbird is a powerful and special teenager whose adventures are related in the five books that encompass the series House of Night. In the three months that transpire in the 5 books published so far, she manages to juggle 4 boyfriends, dead and undead friends and very powerful enemies. The books are repetitive, and with a tint of male downgrading, and homosexual loving tendencies. The books are also entertaining and have an interesting and smart approach behind the vampire genesis. The language is that of teenagers and is fresh and entertaining. I do recommend the reading/listening of this captivating book series.
The House of Night series is tagged as YA, and so it is (lots of teenage angst) - but I can honestly say I have enjoyed, and I am in my (ahem) mid-30's! :)
The plot is very interesting, and each book leaves you wondering what will happen next! I am looking forward to the next release in the fall!
I started reading this series before I had audible and couldn't put it down. Now I don't have to because I can listen to it, and that makes me incredibly happy.
I am a miracle worker. Doing what I can to choose love over fear.
Yes: When enough time has gone by I will listen to all the titles in this series again.
Each of the other's have not given you a possible break. This does which means I can listen to other books again before I get ready to be spellbound again.
Sadly yes: With these titles you cannot stop if you like them.
Excplit not for young teens
