Tempted (House of Night #6)
So…you’d think after banishing an immortal being and a fallen High Priestess, saving Stark’s life, biting Heath, getting a headache from Erik, and almost dying, Zoey Redbird would catch a break. Sadly, a break is not in the House of Night school forecast for the High Priestess in training and her gang. Juggling three guys is anything but a stress reliever, especially wh

So after I gave birth to my son, lazing around the house, cus “come on” my newborn slept around the clock. So I thought “heck I am gonna give this series a try”. Well I am not going to front, I was in love with the first five books of this series, blame it on the hormones or trying to re-live some form of my youth, I was addicted and gobbled up all the books in less than a week.
The sixth book happened and I am now questioning my sanity, I will ...more
So I've made my disdain for Zoey quite clear. So why do I keep reading this? Simple - the plot is actually really good. I really enjoy the Kalona and Neferet story arc, and I REALLY liked that we finally got some chapters from other character's perspectives.
The beginning of this book was hard for me to get through, though. I'm sorry, but the Zoey-going-out-of-her-way-not-to-cuss thing is ge ...more
There are so many things I hate about these books. I hate Zoey, for starters. She is a terrible MC. I mean, you have books like Twilight getting all that crap about the MC being a bad influence, but come on … Zoey does next to nothing except walk around and let boys drool over her. I don't even understand why so many guys are obsessed with her, when she's such an annoying idiot! Sure she has all the magic power thingies, but even that's not all ...more
It’s been 3 years since I read and like Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight (the book, not the movie). People always wonder why I liked that book. Well, aside from the fact that it was one of my first reads when I joined GR, it turned me into who I am now: a voracious reader. I guess it had something to do with its simple, readable language and the buzz it created. I became popular in the office by being the first one to read it and my books, all the 4 of them ...more
Logically Zoey will get with Stark, because he's the only one who hasnt gotten or caused a broken heart yet. Also, because he's gorgeous, whereas Heath is obsessive and Erik is possessive. It's the best way.
Despite that, the series is beginning to unfold in a most interesting way as the stakes get higher. Apocalyptic prophecies and ancient vampire councils make for satisfying twists and turns. And the occasional switch to third-person gives fresh new perspectives and a welcome break from our beloved Zo.

Im sooooo upset about this book! is the worst so far! I just dont get it? WTF happen to the authors???? when they become such a crappy writers??? I mean the last book was boring, but this one was unbearable ! NOTHING happen in 250 pages ! and suddenly in the last 15 pages they kill Heath! and then is over...just like that..!
And is pretty obvius that the writter decided to make the book more "kid and teen like" because suddenly Zoey is a ...more
Note: the following scenario is fiction and is used to illustrate my absolute hatred for the House of Night series. Note, I am not actually a teacher and have not actually substituted for PC Cast. I am merely using the classroom setting to illustrate my disdain for this piece of shit.

Damien and Jack -- they aren't a real gay couple. The Cast's have twisted them so outside of real people that it makes me cringe whenever I read them. Instead of being a real couple, they've become a cute puppy sideshow. It seems like they're constantly patting themselves on the back for having a gay couple without having to add t ...more

Here we have an evil plot to take over all vampire society and doubtlessly do bad evil things – but far more importantly we have to spend an age battling with Zoey’s endless love dodecahedron. This eclipses doing any actual plot line. Oh and Stevie Rae decides to lose her ever loving mind and find yet another irredeemable evil to redeem. Of course she does.
The desperate, awful, contrived theme of this book is “choice” and ...more
Dear PC & Kristin Cast,
Congratulations! You have successfully managed to learn the word "reconnoitering" and use it properly in a sentence. That is quite an accomplishment, if of course you are capable of also learning how to use other words. I can lend you my dictionary if you want! It is chop full of all kinds of words so you don't have to use "reconnoitering" as the only extension of your vocabulary! Seriously, after seeing that word at le ...more
Ok. So this is the 6th in the House of Night series and while I've been recommending these as light tweener-early teen reading I can't anymore. It's like the authors know they have a series going. If they just spend the first part of the book rehashing how the last one ended, fill the middle with useless and frankly inane teen hand wringing, they can end with one plot advancement that will make their readers pick up the next in the series.

This particular book is a filler, dragged on to produce more sensational books within the series. Last book left us in chaos and in the depths of Zoey's Bermuda love triangle. The story is lacking closure and leaving me saying WTF after 300 pages of more teen soap with a splatter of teen slang.

Alas, Zoey has become one of the most irritating characters in YA, and this series seems to be stuck in a rut. The narration has now split between characters, Stevie Rae taking on a much bigger role. (And I have ...more
Okay, so I don't usually expect all that much from the HoN series. As a general rule, I find the writing pretty terrible, the characters kinda one-dimensional, and some of the plot ideas seemingly written by somebody high on E. So why do I keep reading? Well, I like the universe and - prior to this book - I used to like some of the characters. Now I'm down to the universe.
Tempted was just all over the place. We hear from 4 POVs, an unfortunate first for the series. The Casts ...more
