224. Hunted by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast...

December 10, 2009
huntedAbout the book:
At the start of this heart-pounding new installment in the bestselling House of Night series, Zoey's friends have her back again and Stevie Rae and the red fledglings aren't Neferet's secrets any longer. But an unexpected danger has emerged. Neferet guards her powerful new consort, Kalona, and no one at the House of Night seems to understand the threat he poses. Kalona is gorgeous, and he has the House of Night under his spell. A past life holds the key to breaking his rapidly growing influence, but what if this past life unearths secrets Zoey doesn't want to see and truths she can't face?

On the run and hold up in Tulsa's Prohibition-era tunnels, Zoey and her gang must discover a way to deal with something that might bring them alldown. Meanwhile, ZOey has a few other little problems. The red fledglings have cleaned up well--they've even managed to make the dark, creepy tunnels feel more like home--but are they really as friendly as they seem? On the boyfriend front, Zoey has a chance to make things right with super-hot ex, Eric, but she can't stop thinking about Stark, the archer who died in her arms after one unforgettable night, and she is driven to try to save him from Neferet's sinister influence at all costs. Will anyone believe the power evil has to hide among us?

drey's thoughts:
Well, it's nice to know that while some things do change for the better, others don't. Neferet is still an evil bee-hive, only now she's got Kalona on her side. Or so she thinks. He wants Zoey, because he thinks she's the reincarnation of the maiden sent to lure him to his prison eons ago. Like Neferet needs another reason to not like Zoey...

Anyway, Zoey still has boy drama, friend drama, evil hordes to fight, and a world to save. Luckily for her, she still has her grandmother, and friends who stick by her for the greater good. My overall impression of the series? It's ok. I'll read another book if it comes out, but it won't be at the top of my wish list. That spot's reserved for Kitty's House of Horrors right now... =)

Yep a friend of mine just finished this one and she didn't like it as much of some of the first in the series. I have it in my huge stack at home to read.

Nice to know I'm not the only one who thought so, Joy. I enjoyed the first book much more than the later ones. Maybe it was the anticipation?
