I really don't know why I keep reading these books. Maybe I'm hoping they'll get back to being as good as the first five books in the series. They were, I don't know, cozy. But not anymore.

The whole point of this book is to deal with the events that happened at the end of Tempted. And really, that's it. It is painfully obvious that P.C. and Kristin Cast threw in that ending so they could cash in on another book resolving that ending. Quite literally, the first 250 pages of this book is every sin
These books are fine and all but has anyone else realized that there are going to be TWELVE of them in total?! After Burned you have Stolen, Burdened, Touched, Cloaked and Wanted. No wonder they are starting to tell the story from multiple perspectives. (Speculation is now at fifteen books).

Loving the U.K. cover by the way, disappointed its not Stevie Rae like the U.S. but it will look good on my shelf anyway.

Finally, time for me to actually review it. Okay, so this took me a while to read seein
P.C. Cast has gone way beyond the talent she has shown in previous books in her writing of the most recent installment of the House of Night series. The multiple perspectives, introduced in the 6th book worked masterfully in telling this book's unique story. The way that the storyline is told is both surprising as it is breathtaking. There was a point in this book where P.C. Cast tricked me and I absolutely loved it! When the realization hit, I was in awe of how well written the revelation was. ...more
I absolutly loved the book before this book. The only problems I had with it were that.................. 1.) Zoey and Stark didn't seem like they got enough time together which made it seem like they were growing apart. 2.) Stark and Zoey need to be together. Period. 3.) I am zo glad Heath died. He was a totally unimportant character. he just got in the way. 4.) How in the fricken world could Zoey DIE????????????? I really hope that in Burned Zoey lives and she ends up with the right person (Sta ...more

Just want to see how the story end.
I love this series. I have never felt so connected to a set of characters. Whenever I'm reading one of these books I always feel like I'm right there and that zoey and her gang are my friends. These books bring me happiness, sadness, anger, serenity, & laughter. I always regret finishing one and always enjoy picking up another. I am ecstatic to hear that there are more books to come and even more ecstatic to hear that they are working on making them into films. I say keep up the good work P. ...more

Zoey's soul is shattered and it will only take two people in her life to save her soul; Heath and of course Stark. To be honest, I pretty tired of the whole 'I can't leave you Heath! I love you!' I was jumping up and down on my bed when Stark finally was part of her life.

Aprodite of course was hilarious! It was kind of cool for her to have some parts and see her point of view in this whole mess. We got to know her better and loved her even more.

i cant wait till this comes out!! the end was way too suspencefull! ahhhhhhhh! i cant wait till may!
The first few books in this series were good. They were fun, easy reads and guilty-pleasure material. The last few books have been a chore to read, though. While the characters were not as annoying in this book (due to Zoey not really being present) the writing was irritating. I did not understand the reason for switching narrators every few pages. It added nothing to the story and broke it up too much. I have never been a fan of the Kalona plot which was particularly boring in this book. I real ...more

LADIDAAA TIME TO REVIEW HOUSE OF NIGHT NÚMERO SIETE (and for those of you that are very Spanish-deprived, that means #7). God, I love these books. Actually, I hate them. I just love reviewing them because they are so utterly ridiculous. And I love reading them because …they are so, utterly ridiculous. I have been told that there will be 15 in the series, so we are not even halfway through yet. WA-HOOO! Although how they're going to manage to keep the plot running for that long, I have no idea.

The House of Night Series is filled with drama. At times I feel im reading a teenage soap-opera. But It is highly addicting. And as the series continue I feel that each books gets darker and each of the characters get more entangled in conflicts but they mature.

I specially started to enjoy the series more when the different point of views of the characters started to appear. I found that Aphrodite, Stevie Rae and Stark are complex and interesting characters.

In the beginning I found Stevie Rae
i know its going to be good!but does anybody think that p.c cast should release the first chapter? pleeeaaasse?

When the book blurb is that long, it’s a bit redundant for me to reiterate what happened isn’t it? ha.

Zoey is trapped in the Otherworld due to her soul shattering when Heath is killed by Kalona. Parts of her soul are scattered & all of her friends must work to first make her give up Heath & two put the pieces of herself back together before her body dies. In the meantime, Neferet has put Kalona in a trance like state to make sure Zoey dies. Then we have Stevie Ray dealing with her feelin

At this point, I can't even make a decent drinking game for these books because they've just gotten so bad and incoherent. So if you want to get drunk off of this one (which I'm sure you do) just get drunk anytime you're wondering what the hell is going on. It's that simple.

With that out of the way, let's talk about Burned the seventh shitty installment of the hideous House of Night series.

First off the cover..... Awsome. the title....... Awsome....... This book is gonna test Zoey, Stevie Rae, and Aphrodite. See if Zoey can overcome the terrible events that took a deadly toll on her. If Stevie Rae can find the strenght and courge to put those red Flegding in line, and find a way to save Zoey From the Otherworld? If Aphrodite can manage the sudden pressure of Nyx is putting on her. By talking to her, Whether Aphrodite want it or not?

I was eagerly anticipating this book, but it is clear after reading it that the authors are merely dragging this story out for profit instead of the work itself. While the other six previous novels were paced well, this book drags. The idiotic and sterotypical language in this book is extremely annoying. The many different points of view border on the absurd. I can see introducing a couple of new povs, but everyone almost has a pov in this story and it leapfrogs between them.

You knew form early
Wow! From the first word to the last this book is filled with action and suspense. Such a wonderful new chapter in the House of Night saga. I loved the multiple POV's and the intricate storylines flowing through the book. How what we assumed in past volumes is turned showing that while Zoey is essentially the main character we are shown that it isn't just about her, but about the group and all the decisions and choices they make. How these combined choices form the world around them and will ult ...more
Burned by another lackluster installment

In book seven of the House of Night series, BURNED(House of Night Novels), the reader returns to the cliffhanger ending of the last book where Kalona has killed Heath, Zoey's soul has shattered, and now Zoey and Heath are together in the Otherworld. With Zoey gone and the prediction looming that she will die permanently within seven days unless her soul is restored, her friends and colleagues must devise a way to bring her back. Stevie Rae is also continui

If I weren't embarrassed to admit publicly that I'm addicted to this series, I'd have a t-shirt made that said, "Slay Stevie Rae." She is the epitome of annoyance, along with Rephaim, Kalona, the stupid non-twins, and Jack, the squeaking boyfriend (Damien deserves better, I think). I am, finished with this book the day after it's release.

The first 100 pages are a waste...meaningless dialogue that I doubt the authors even understand themselves. But, for those of us who can't seem to t

Feb 15, 2010 Grace marked it as to-read  ·  review of another edition
After I finished the first book, Marked, I didn't have that longing feeling I get when I am waiting for the release of the next book. However after I read the other books, I started to feel that longing. These books may not be my absolute favorites, but these are enjoyable and I would recommend these to vampire lovers.
The heart is a powerful thing. The soul…strong and unyielding.

Burned is by far my favorite book of the series and where the others fell short I feel that Burned more than made up for it. The characters have all grown immensely, their feelings and attitudes shifting, changing, maturing.

It took a while for me to finish the book only because I’ve been so busy. Usually taking a while to read a book depletes my enjoyment of it, in this instance that was not the case. Though you can detect the writi
Not a fan of the switching between 1st and 3rd person. It's sloppy and can be confusing as to who the protagonist actually is. Stick with one point of view, if you feel the need to say something in 3rd person once you've started with 1st, then you should probably start it in 3rd person. That being said, it proves that the series as a whole isn't being planned out. P.C. and Kristin Cast seem to write whatever comes to mind and aren't doing it good enough. They are sloppy writers.

Also, the authors

"Kalona lifted his hands. He didn't hesitate. There was no doubt whatsoever in his mind about what he had to do."

Zoey Redbird's soul has shattered. The fledgling High Priestess is trapped in the Otherworld and is slowly losing herself, piece by piece. Zoey's broken heart is making it difficult for her to return to her friends, and they are in desperate need of her help.

Neferet is worming her way into the Vampyre High Council, and there is little to be done

I adored the first few books in this series. They were wonderful. Full of suspense, action, a bit of romance and the right amount of supernatural elements to make teens and adults happy. This is no longer the case.

I only liked one character in the book- Aphrodite. She was funny, sarcastic but still showed she cared when it counted (she is the reason for the two stars, and not one). The other characters, especially Dallas, seemed to have parts in this book just to develop situations for the sake
