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

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.

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.

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,

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

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. ...more

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!

Now, Goddess Thanatos is the new High Priestess and Kalona, after he saved his son Rephaim, has now become the school's warrior.

“I was blinking back freaked-out tears when Rephaim whispered my name. I looked over at him. He smiled and mouthed two small words: people change.”

Aurox, another victim of Neferet's evil ways, will struggle in order his humanity part wins over against his dark side.

1.5/5 ~ ENG only because it’s not worth it.

And I’m here once again to talk about nothing lol
Yes, this is another filler book in this endless series of which I can’t wait to get rid of, seriously.
This series started so great, it was probably one of my favorites but I always “feared” its number of books.
My suspicions are starting to be pretty right.
Since the previous book I saw that the story wasn’t going forward, nothing was happening until the very last chapter and this book is exactly the sam

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:

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

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

[image error]Photobucket"

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't b
