Okay guys, I'm getting alot of hate for this, so here's a warning. THIS IS NOT A POSITIVE REVIEW!!!! And honestly. If your gonna give me BS about it, please answer me first: Do you relate to Zoey? And by that I mean by her actions and thoughts, not "Oh I have the same skirt". Good books, have protagonists that you can relate to. Hunger Games. Katniss. Harry Potter. Harry Potter! Hush,Hush. Nora. Twilight? We all make thise stupid Bella mistakes from time to

EDIT: This was actually OK.


For the record, I hate this series like I've hated no other. But I just want to know what happens next... :/

Why must I be so masochistic?

Ah, it's definitely a love-hate kinda thing. Love the plot. Hate everything else.
[Scroll down for the actual review:)]

Haha why the hell did I mark this as to-read?

So I can write a snarky review probably.

Like, ohmagawd guuuyzzz, the 10 book is comin ouutzzz and likez, sirously, I am sooo ecited! Who caaarez that the writing is likez ttly boringz, there are HOTT VAMPYRES and stuffs lol HAHAHA <3 <3 and likez, isn't it cutsie how Zoey sayz "poop" and "pop" and "I heartz you"?!?! Like, EVERY1 says "I heartz you"! It's ttly naturale! And like she has 5MILLION GAIZ who luv
Sometimes I wonder why I keep reading this book...

I feel so frustrated by the writing sometimes, it just... UGHHHHH.

If I were Zoey and her friends, Neferet would be DEAD. I mean, why doesn't Stark just use his magical ability of not being able to miss a shot to shoot Neferet in the head, and she'd be dead! I mean come on, Stark, if you wanted Zoey to be happy you'd kill Neferet and take her out of her misery. Make her happy! Unless he wants her to be miserable so he can comfort her... Oh Stark y

I heard there were going to be 15 books in total in this series. I really don't understand it. They could have easily taken the plot, started with it from the beginning and finished with it five books ago, minusing the abbreviations (BFF. Really?) and awful comparisons to movies/shows (True Blood, Avatar, Glee...). The last few books have been complete drags with nothing happening that is beneficial for the ending as I see it.

The writing is so obnoxiously written. Teenagers do NOT act like that.

I don't love this series but I don't actually hate this its just in the middle for me and I wanted to know how it will end so I continue on reading this series and right know I'm just waiting for this book HIDDEN and I do hope it will end in here cause honestly I'm getting bored at it the only reason I'm still reading this is because of STARK!!!

I'm really team STARK! And as for ZOEY i hate her!!!! I hated how every freaking Guy in the series is drooling over her.I hated the fact that she keeps
The House of Night series is my number-one guilty pleasure; I turn to it whenever I am down in the dumps, and it never fails to make me laugh. The series has been going on for quite some time now, and while it is quite overbearing, there is a lot to appreciate. The latest installment, Hidden, is one of my favorite installments in the series. The beginning lagged a tiny bit, as is the usual later in the series. And then, suddenly, it was like a miracle happened: I hit a certain point, and I just ...more

This is for those of you who have made mistakes, and who are brave enough to correct them, and wise enough to learn from them.

2.5 stars. Believe it or not, that was the dedication at the front of the book. I think the Casts could probably turn their dedication back around on themselves, seeing as how they've taken the fan complaints to heart and reigned in some of the most blatant issues with House of Night.

Yes, I know. I'm still reading this trainwreck of a series. Hard to believe, isn't it
Just to let everyone know so far there are going to be 12 books in this series. Both P.C. Cast and her daughter stated this back in 2009 on the Rachel Ray show when they were there to promote Hunted (interview can be seen on youtube). I personal like the series and can't wait for this one to come out. The only thing that I would have wanted them to do differently is to stop dragging out the fight with Nef. But still I can't wait to see how the books go and how they are going to take down Nef.

I CANNOT WAIT!!!!! Destined was amazing!

UPDATE 7/19/12

For one, the cover is amazing. That's the best depiction of Zoey I've seen ever! I hope the book is as good as the cover!

Now, I've been doing predictions for all my new series. Each time, I come up with fifteen "prophecies" that I think must happen in the new novel. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't, but I'm becoming known for them, so I think I'll do predictions for Hidden. Here we go!

Zoey and the gang are back at the House of Night trying to pick up the pieces from everything that happened at the end of the last book. And surprise, deal with all the new...and old problems that are cropping up!

This book, this series, makes me feel like this:

Everything is frustrating! The plot, the characters, the writing...some things are better and some things are worse. And some of the things that were better are worse again. But the very bottom line is that this series has it's hooks in m

So yeah, I'm not going to read this. I admit, part of me feels a little weird and almost sad at the thought of there being a House of Night book out in the world that I'm not reading ... Haha wait, who am I kidding? I'm glad I decided not to put myself through the torture anymore. I mean, I had my fun snarking about the first 8.25 books (I finally just gave up about a fourth of the way through the 9th book). But I mean, 10 books? Come on. And there's supposed to be, what, 15 total? Oy vey.

At first, I liked the series. Really, I did. It was probably this belief that kept me going.

But then I started hating it when all that happened was:

ohmy*goddess*, i'm soooo totally freaking out because i dont kno if i should pick the guy i want to eat or not, and i am totally wastin tym over it and by the time i realiz that, he's already dead so i kil myself and let every1 worry abt me and 500million guyz trip over me wyl i spend tym wid a dead guy. but no worriez, bcoz there are looots of guys
Okay, here's the thing. I completely understand why everyone is so offended by these books and I do find the characters annoying (especially the way Kramisha speaks. For fuck's sake, your poems are grammatically correct, so follow that example, ho), but I can't seem to stop. The books are addictive. I can't really tell you what I like about them. I just do. Except for this one. Hidden felt like a fill-up book, just a little transition from Destined to #11. Because nothing really happened, and we ...more

I can understand why everybody is so tired of reading these books and I can relate, but why would you continue to read it if you're going to have such a negative input on it? I honestly still read them simply because it's a good story line for the most part. Who cares if she puts abbreviations and stupid sayings that no one says in it? It's like being in another world, and honestly, I think that the addition of those kins of things help me get into the atmosphere of the house of night. If you do ...more

Dude people need to shut the hell up about how Z needs to die this and Grandma Redbird needs to die that. I mean really if you don't like the books don't read it and don't post on here about how you "HATE" or "Dislike" the books cause if I were the authors and people were talking crap about my books I would hunt them down and kill them but then again that's me. But if you have nothing nice to say about the books don't say anything at all. any way enough of the losers

I can't wait to read the new
Is this the last one? I just finished book 6 and I am kind of sick of many more books can there be? I hate hate when authors write more and more and more instead of letting it end on a high note.

Thank God Richelle Mead and Karen Marie Moning, ended Vampire Academy and the Fever series while it was still addicting...6 books should probably the tops, unless you are following different characters.

I was surfing wikipedia, and found this lovely picture when reading the summary for Hidden

Wow. Okay. I guess the Cast's aren't the only ones who are off their rocker. I laughed my ass off when I saw it, at least.

What does this picture have to do with this book? Pizza? Is pizza finally going to get his ass off of the couch and finish this series once and for all? Because otherwise this picture has no purpose there.

P.s: I actually didn't read the summary. I almost died.

Why isn't this the end?!? There was a solution - though kind of easy and lame - but an opportunity for closure. Why does it have to be dragged out for two more books?!?

I actually liked this book more than the last because I liked the way it started. Lenobia has always been interesting to me, though she was always in the background, and I really liked that I got to see more of her, who she was, how she became who she is and her path to finding happiness. But that story was short-lived, and she di

Like Zoey would say "Ah hell"

Another amazing sequel by the author we know and love. If you haven't read the previous books read them. The book was alot about Aurox getting to know himself and his position in the world. Loved that Lenobia was reunited with her true love. Neferet has to come up with some more creative evil plans that will give some oomph to the book. Neferet was just to predictable. Didn't end on a cliffhanger so not sure what to expect in the next one..anxiously waiting..

Pre-reading, Pre-release:

please, PLEASE tell me this is the last book in the series! The onl reason I'm still reading this series is because I HAVE to know how it ends, but I don't think I can hang on for much longer.

the first three books are okay, I guess... but I like to skip them as often as I can. book 3 & 4 pisses me off. 5... I don't remember what happened in five. At book 6 I started really HATING this series. After book 6 I read book 7 hoping they would bring Heath back and they didn

I figured taking a year-and-a-half break from this series would somehow make the heart grow fonder, but alas.

The most frustrating thing about these novels is how much potential they have. Some scenes are downright cinematic and I know that, in the right hands, these books would make an amazing movie series. And I think it's this quality that have kept readers coming back for so long - after all, this is one of the longest-running YA series that is out right now (it's hard to believe it's been si
1.5 stars. the extra 0.5 star is given out because I do think the story has the potential to become slightly better.

Don't ask me why, but I do feel some of the Casts' ideas are actually cool, but sadly they hardly ever excised their cool ideas in any meaningful way.

To be 100% honest with you. I have long stopped caring about the characters and the plots of the House of Night series. The main character Zoey Redbird is a big fat Mary Sue, and even up to this book it doesn't change. In the book, p
