When will this bloody series end

This new series that's from another series was amazing, now I need to get my hands on the other series it's based off. I enjoyed every page of this book and highly recommend it. The second book Lost to this series comes out June or July 2018 I'd have to check again which month exactly. I can't wait to get my hands on it.

Let me start from the beginning...

I have read every House of Night novel and novella, liked the characters and lore and magic & vampyre elements. But, sometimes storylines were so poorly written that I was like "Why do I even try?". I tried because the HoN series was full of positive vibes and love. Even though that combo was sometimes getting on my nerves (specifically Grandma Redbird) because I wanted action and hardships and difficult decisions and drama.

I never gave up on reading the whole s

Today March 10, 2017 was epic! Kristin Cast announced that she and her mother will release another book in the House of Night series! I'm over the moon happy! But please release it in book form not only as an ebook!

Celebrate the House of Night 10th anniversary with Loved, the HoN novel you've been waiting for. #HoNLoved

Did you see the cover reveal!?!? It's mainly white, which means a new era for the House of Night books!

I can't take the blurb seriously when the so-called butt kicking group calls themselves the "nerd herd." There's only so much I can take.

My taste have change so much since reading all the House of Night novels. I just have a feeling reading this will make me cringe, but Im doing it anyways for old time sake. I finished the series in my first years of University, back when I hadnt read as much YA. Ive read 200 + books (mostly YA) since finishing the HoN series so I doubt it will live up to all the great YA books Ive read. However I might get nostalgic. We'll see.

Zoey and the Nerd Herd are all back again! I am so glad to come back to a new series of House of the Night. I am so glad the authors decided to write more adventures for the vampires and fledging's. There would be no Nerd Herd without all the great charterers in this series. Aphrodite and Stevie Ray and many more are what makes this book great and makes it feel like home. This book we even met some new vampires! I can't wait to read book 2!!!

The House of Night series returns in a thrilling new series with the beloved Nerd Herd!

Its Zoey’s 18th birthmas and the Nerd Herd arrive back on home soil for a surprise celebration. Aphrodite, Zoey’s right-hand woman and Nyx’ prophetess, has a vision that leaves her worried for her friend’s lives.

With rabid red vampyres on the loose any differences must be put aside to save the towns fellow vampyres and humans from being infected and ravaged. Little do they know that they come from an alternate

I'm thoroughly disappointed. My friend and I have read every book in this series. Nowhere in the previous books did P.C. drag current political events into the story line, let alone push her political views onto us. I have no idea why she felt it was necessary to do that in this one. What I do know is that people generally read this genre of book in order to escape the real world, not have it thrown up at every turn. If we wanted that, we'd turn on the news or pick up the paper.

Where to even start, oh my goodness... I was absolutely ecstatic when I learned there was another HON book coming out. I preordered it on Kindle AND hardback the moment I could.
I can't recommend this series enough. I wholeheartedly believe there is something in it for everyone. So beautifully detailed, they truly take into the world that is the House of Night. It feels like you grow & experience everything with the characters, the good as well as the bad. You laugh, smile, & cry (both sad AND ha

It's been a year since the Nerd Herd beat Neferet and they've dispersed to live their separate lives. Zoey, having a dream about Neferet potentially emerging again, wants to bring everyone together. Her man, Stark, has already planned for this as everything is falling around her birthmas. Her now surprise becomes a reunion to try and stop her dream from coming true.

Their own personal tragedies have caused them to not only face the zombie apocalypse they accidentally unleashed in their world, but

Well this book was only $1 so I can't be too mad.

The storyline was engaging but not much has changed since the other series. Everything is still sickly sappy, from the BFF dialogue to Grandma Redbird baking cookies for the gang. Also once again we left on a cliff hanger so nothing got solved.

There was a little bit of political propaganda in this but it didn't really take away from the story or phase me.

I'm tired of people being resurrected so everyone can be paired off into perfect couples. Even

I liked this book from the beginning because they had a full recap of House of Night things in case the reader needed a refresher. They told us what happened, who the main characters are, and pretty much HoN 101. This is super helpful and I wish all series would do this!
The story picks up not long after the original series finished. I like seeing Zoey and her circle grown up and in their High Council positions. My favorite part of the book was seeing Jack again. He's so sweet and adorable and D

Zoey and the Nerd Herd are back! This is not a drill! In this new series, Zoey and her friends have been scattered across the U.S fulfilling their new roles as fully changed vampyres. It has been one year since the defeat of Neferet, and there has been no life or death drama since. Until fear is brought on everyone with the thought that Neferet might be stirring. It is up to Zoey and her friends to ensure that whatever drama is coming their way, that they are prepared.

I was ok with how the House of Night series ended. When this book popped up I found myself curious as to how things would proceed. I found myself bored with most of the book. It only got interesting when Zoey's brother popped up and everyone realized the significance of him. The other slightly interesting part was the change that came over Aphrodite, who hasn't been a favorite of mine. But with that being said, I did like the place she was in at the end. I'll probably keep up with this series as ...more

I actually really enjoyed this book. Having thought that the House of Night series was atrocious, I was expecting this to be just as bad, so I was pleasantly surprised.

The plot was alright and better than most of the books in the main series. All of the Nerd Herd reunite in Tulsa to celebrate Zoey's 18th birthday/Christmas. A circle inevitably happens, which is interrupted by Aphrodite's mother, and all kinds of chaos occurs, but primarily evil red fledglings and vampyres from another world. Th

I Picked Up This Book Because: I am a fan of the original HON series.

The Characters:

Zoey Redbird:
The Nerd Herd:
Grandma Redbird, Other Jack and Other Kevin

The Story:

The Good: The Nerd Herd is back! After being spread all across America everyone is back to celebrate Zoey’s 18th Birthday

The Bad: So is Nefert, or maybe it’s just her influence. The White Bull starts some drama that ends up opening a portal to another world

I LOVE CAITLIN DAVIES!!! She is seriously one of my most favorite narrators so 5 stars for her.

Also I just freaking love the Nerd Herd and the House of Night world. Being back in it, I kind of wanted to cry, but in a good way. Seeing the gang all split up made me sad, but luckily that wasn't for very long.

Unfortunately, darkness is rising and the gang has to postpone Zoey's birthmas celebration. Diving into this story was like coming home to something I hadn't realized I had missed so much. Ug

I love the House of Night series. I've read the whole thing a few times. Despite it being such a long series, I enjoyed it, & the characters, every time. (Although it is Really Really long). I was always wanting more because I love Zoey & the Nerd Herd that much. I would love to have glimpses into their lives 5, 10, or even 50 years later. Maybe not a year though?

I remember when Loved first came out, I was so freaking excited! I remember buying it the first time I seen it on the shelf (then taki
