What if the hottest guy in the world was hiding a nameless evil, and all he wanted was you? At the start of this.
For instance, words damn it, write a dictionary if you want to explain words , the storyline over and over and over and over This is one of the main things that takes away from the interesting story and just turns it into being about boys and the character being a whingy, whimpy idiot. She can't seem to make up her mind about any boys that she likes and guess what? All the hot guys want a piece of her and so far there is really only one guy who isn't considered hot.
So most of the story is her obsessing over all these boys and what she is going to do about them when the world as she knows it is coming to an end and everyone is in danger. Way to get the priorities sorted.
If you knew nothing about teenagers maybe you slept through your teen years and then have been living on Mars since and this was your only reference to them then you'd come away thinking they were boy obsessed, daft because the characters take a long time to figure things out , have bad memories because they repeat themselves so much, are really, really shallow and that teenage girls can go around cheating on their boyfriends, stringing boys along and eventually getting away with it because the boys will still love them.
So basically it was entertaining trash given the underlying story but really annoying at the same time.
Not that I'm really annoyed with the story, it's the authors that have done my head in so I'll be reading the next one because I want to know what happens with the bigger picture and to see if this is only a transition novel. We DON'T need to be reminded of it every other page of every freaking book. Not to mention i fear that Zoey is turning into a giant ho cake with ho icing.

You know when you go to the airport, and you're waiting at your gate for your flight, and you look over at the little old lady sitting next to you? She might be reading a book, but she's angled it so that you can't quite see what it is.
But she seems really into it, and you start to wonder what she's reading. Then maybe something happens and she readjusts Okay, so the House of Night series is seriously one of the most guilty pleasure-ish young adult series I've read. Then maybe something happens and she readjusts herself, and the cover of her book flashes into view, and you see a shirtless Fabio-type man with long, flowy hair holding a busty woman whose corset dress is looking rather askew.
It has a title like "Seduced by a Rogue Lord" or "The Virgin's Wicked Deed", and you feel a blush rising to your cheeks, and you think to yourself, Why the hell would she be reading that in public?! Well, that's kind of how I feel about House of Night. Let's be honest with ourselves here--House of Night is hardly a work of ground-breaking literature. It's pure and utter book candy, something you know is bad for you, but you just keep eating and eating because you can't stop.
And oh, how delicious the candy is.
Which brings me to Hunted , the fifth installment of the series. I'll admit, I actually wasn't really looking forward to this book that much, just because I felt that Untamed was quite a bit of a letdown, both story-wise and writing-wise.
After three completely squee-worthy books, the fourth just wasn't up to par. So, then came this one. And I'm pleased to say that Cast and Cast are finally back on their game.
Well, as much as one can be on their game when writing a series with a fairly ridiculous premise, and complete Mary Sue of a main character, and cookie cutter villains. But you know what? All of that doesn't really bother me that much.
Because honestly? The books are just so entertaining to read. For the most part. Yes, Zoey is absolutely perfect. She's been blessed with these powers that nobody else has, she's destined for great things, she makes stupid mistakes and faces pretty much no consequences for them, and she's definitely got the Anita Blake factor going for her-- everybody wants to sleep with her.
Erik wants to sleep with her, even though he spent most of book four simultaneously hating her and trying to make her miserable. Heath wants to sleep with her even though he pretty explicitly said in book four that he never wanted to be with her again. Stark wants to sleep with her, even though they've only known each other for like, one day. Kalona wants to sleep with her because she's A-ya reincarnated.
Hell, I bet Loren Blake still wants to sleep with her from beyond the grave. The only males who don't want to sleep with Zoey are the gay ones. Speaking of gay, I don't really know why, but Cast and Cast seem to think that they have to make Damien and Jack really, really gay. I mean, so stereotypically gay that you wonder if they're going to strap a rainbow banner on their chests and start marching through the streets.
As someone who knows several gay people, I can say with a fair amount of certainty that not all of them get really emotional every time something moderately frightening occurs, are obsessed with clothes and shopping, can cook really well, and basically act like they're the equivalent of a year-old girl with menstrual cramps. I think pretty much everyone is familiar with homosexuals--we don't need Cast and Cast to overdo it like they are.
As for the plot, it was pretty solid. Slow at first, but definitely picked itself up. It was fairly predictable, but what else can you expect from the book equivalent of marshmallow pudding? The only gripe I have is that it wasn't edited properly in a couple places. There were a few grammatical errors, and sometimes the authors mixed up Darius and Damien.
Also, at the very end, they call Zoey's grandmother Stevie Rae's grandmother. But it wasn't too distracting. All in all, as much as I'm embarrassed to admit it, I had fun with Hunted. I wouldn't whip it out at the airport because I'd be a bit worried about what people would think of me, but I can safely enjoy it in private. View all 5 comments.

Sometimes I don't even know why I bother. I am a goal oriented person. Seriously, I have like post it notes on my desk with day goals, week goals, year goals, life goals And being goal oriented is a good thing.
But at this point with the House of Night books I don't know if I can continue it guys I really don't. Not after I read Hunted. This book I understand why many peop To see full review and to vote on whether or not I continue my quest to read this series click here.
I understand why many people have quit the series after this installment. And it's not because this book is any more offensive than the rest though if the character Karmisha would've been highlighted any more I think it could've approached that territory. It's just that this installment I thought of reviewing this book several ways: Cast expressing my disdain, writing a review where I praise this book for doing what it is But all those ideas, they were too good for this book.
And since this is supposed to be a drinking game feature, I just decided to list some things you could drink for. Specifically, the top ten things that offended me the most about Hunted. Just admit your Tara Gillesbie, Kristin. The evidence is all there. Count Chocola, a main character that looks like Michelle "Bombshell" McGee, multiple characters in love with the MC, perverts on campus. Heck, there's even a scene where Zoey's running around campus naked like Ebony.
And one of the love interests has red eyes like vampire. God, if you haven't read this fan fic. Read it. The grammar's atrocious hence, why PC probably had to help write this book , but it's all there I swear.
Okay, it's just my opinion and I know in reality that Kristin Cast and Tara Gilesbie are two different individuals, but I just can't help but wonder. I just can't. There were like fifteen or so new characters introduced in this installment. I really can't remember who was who and don't care.
They serve no purpose just like most of those characters they forced upon us in the second season of Young Justice just to sell toys and look what happened to that show I'd rather focus on the characters we were introduced to in season one.
The first one hundred and forty pages are a complete waste. And when they go back to the school Couldn't they like get a vampyre healer? I mean, they're getting everything else brought into those tunnels.
Heck, they even have running water?
House of Night Book 5 -Hunted
Is it really that hard to find some sort of medicine woman like Dr. Quinn to come and cure Zoey.
Or better yet let Zoey die. That would've made a lot more sense than what did happen and been quasi poignant. Honestly, the plot holes are what made the plot and that's just sort of sad. I guess if you did it correctly, it would. But when mess up certain aspects about some of the mythology your using and have no explanation-say for the fact your using a Cherokee legend that took place thousands of years ago and try to make it take place in Oklahoma when it's historically known that a part of the Cherokee tribe only moved to Oklahoma because of Andrew Jackson and the Trail of Tears while small portions of the tribe hid in the North Carolina mountains and still reside in the state today , you have one big mess.
Then again, calling every celebrity and their mother sort of gives you a clue of credibility of your made up mythology. Honestly, at this point But I hate having to read these convoluted explanations. And I'm like, why even bother you'll just contradict yourself whenever you find it necessary. But really, really, half of this book could've been edited out. That's how useless some if not most of the dialogue is. It just got really annoying after awhile.
See a Problem?
There's an attempted rape in this book. And the way it's handled is disgusting. First of all, it was okay for the victim to be almost assaulted because the character that attempted to rape her was hot.
And for that, she endures slut slamming by are sanctimonious heroine. Oh, and did I mention the attempted rapist barely got his hand slap. Nope, it's his victim who faces the consequences. Seems a weird thing to be offended by. But the love interests are pathetic.
All of them. And what would that be five no six if you count dead Loren at this point in time. Let me list them: Heath Sir Douche: Appears randomly, cals Zoey-Z, we're told he's a gentleman, but it's obviously he's really a douche. Oh, and he and Zoey shared or share an imprint and you know how I feel about imprinting Erik Prince Eric: He's too good for Zoey. And there's really not much to him, he's like a Disney character. Though he's always described as looking like Superman. Loren Mr.
Mary Kay Laterno: He's dead now. But he and Zoey had sex.
He claimed to really love Neferet, but we all know what he was probably thinking Stark Iron Man: New kid in school who Zoey has an insta connection too. He dies comes back evil but through the power of love hey Kalona Kocoum: This fallen angel based on Native American legend who apparently thinks Zoey is Wonder Woman well, a maiden made of clay that's close enough or something.
He's completely evil, but because he's hot Zoey thinks she likes him. Is she supposed to be likable? I don't know what I'm supposed to get out of my main character. Honestly, the only thing Zoey talks about other than brown pop is her pathetic love life.
And as you cans see from my list I drink just whenever that's talked about. So yeah, that makes her offensive in that regard.
And then there's the fact that she's just so judgmental, bitchy, and just unlikeable in general. I can't believe anyone would like this bitch given some of the things she has said. This is a reoccurring problem throughout the series, but it grated on my nerves a little bit more this time around. Probably because of the character Karmisha who is supposed to be the sassy African American from the ghetto stereotype. It's disgusting how the Casts portray her.
And to make matters worse, they completely shove her in our faces so that we have to like her. I think that was probably my biggest issue because with Damen even though they stereotype him in the fullest seriously, in every book we're told in some not so obvious way that he's gay , they don't spend a full twenty minutes trying to get us to instantly like him like they did with Karmisha.
Plus, there was no need for the Karmisha character in this book. They already had a poet, but I guess the Casts just wanted to add more token characters in their book and token characters they have a plenty.
Let's look at some of the stereotyping that goes on here, specifically concerning her: Introduction to Karmisha: It was a testament to how distracted I'd been with Venus and Aphrodite and Stevie Rae that I hadn't noticed her before then.
She had on a form -fitting bright yellow shirt cut low to show the top of her black lace bra and a pair of high-waisted, skintight cropped jeans that were cinched up with a wide leather belt that matched her chunky gold shoes. Her hair was cut geometrically into a short poof on her head, and half of it was dyed bright orange. Karmisha's first line: And another brilliant quote of Karmisha's: That ain't right,' Kramisha added, fragmenting my attention.
I'm thin' a pretty white boy with wings explodin' up form the ground in a mess of blood and ugly-ass bird things is double trouble. I'd like to interject at this point that the guy she's talking about is Kalona who originates from an Native American folklore and is described looking like a Native American. And as far as I know, Native Americans aren't white. So, I want your thoughts.
Should I continue or not? I really hate giving up on a goal but after reading this maybe View all 8 comments. This is the book in which Kalona pretends to be a good guy.
And he also wants Zoey. I want you. My friends and I are not safe. Mar 11, Jennifer Wardrip rated it it was amazing Shelves: When last we left Zoey, all hell literally was breaking loose inside the vampyre school. I am sad to say that her predicament has gone from bad to worse.
Neferet, current High Priestess at the House of Night, has declared war on all human beings. To aid in her quest, Neferet has called forth an ancient evil that cannot be destroyed. Kalona, a fallen angel, has risen from the depths of the earth with Neferet's help.
He is an immortal who believes that Zoey is his chosen one - the one who trapped him decades ago inside the confines of the earth. Zoey's task is great. She and her friends will be forced to use their abilities to help rid the world of Kalona once again, and sabotage Neferet's master plan.
By calling the five elements, Zoey, Shaunee, Erin, Stevie Rae, and Damien are declaring a war of their own - to stop Neferet and Kalona, no matter the cost. The Cast duo has done it again!
These ladies appear to be an unstoppable force within the world of YA literature. The energy and integrity of the first four novels has not been diminished in this fifth installment. The characters' personalities are as vibrant as ever, and the story remains engaging and original. Teenage readers will be drawn to Zoey's everyday, angst-riddled life.
These stories are surreal, yet shockingly accurate when it comes to teenagers and their lives. View 1 comment. Oct 30, Alessandra rated it did not like it. I tried to finish this. I really did. But when the main character of a book annoys you so much you can hardly stand turning the page, something's got to give. How many guys does Zoey need? It was just getting a bit ridiculous. I was happy when it seemed that Zoey was happily dating Erik who is pretty irritating anyway, but whatever, it's not my fictional life in this book.
Then Heath pops back up again. It's not only the fact that every single guy character in this series apar I tried to finish this. It's not only the fact that every single guy character in this series apart from the painfully stereotypical gay friends seems to fall instantly in love with Zoey that annoys me. It's the fact that she can't just pick one and be done with it. Heath's been following her around for four books now.
Cut the guy a break. Tell him you're not interested, even if it's not completely true. Stop leading him on. I can appreciate a love triangle as much as the next person, but considering Zoey's love life doesn't come close to resembling something as logical as a three-sided plane shape, Hunted was just too much for me to handle.
Hunted: A House of Night Novel
Definitely not continuing with the rest of this series. Aug 18, Cyna rated it did not like it. You guys ready?
Cuz here we go again. Hunted picks up right where Untamed left off — well, sort of. It actually picks up a few hours after Untame You guys ready? His laugh was seductive. I wanted to drown in it. I leaned forward, closing my eyes and gasping aloud as the chill of his spirit brushed against my breasts, sending shooting sensations that were painful but deliciously erotic to places in my body that made me feel out of control.
It brings you pleasure.
For, you know, reasons. You were made from them.
Fashioned to love me. Her makers gifted her with a fancy dress, pretty hair, pretty face, fast legs, and a nice voice. Your logic feels contrived, bro. For example, another girl leads Erik — a dude she is currently not dating, remember — through the tunnels to find supplies, and Zoey loses her shit.
Er, vampyre. Recently Changed vampyre at that. He is also my boyfriend. Er, ex-boyfriend. Recently ex-boyfriend at that. Once again, can we all just bask in the irony of Zoey being jealous because Erik is physically in the presence of another woman? So acting on an attraction to three boys simultaneously is fine for Zoey, but if Erik does it?
Not okay with her! Uh, no?
I really hate the casual way Cast has Zoey expressing this incredibly entitled, selfish, hypocritical, and unreasonable overreaction. What the fuck?? Then I turned my attention back to Venus. She had an icy beauty. Her hair was long and thick and the kind of blond that looked golden. In other words, she was definitely attractive enough to hang with Aphrodite, which was saying something, because Aphrodite is totally gorgeous.
And, like Aphrodite used to be, Venus was obviously a hateful bitch, and probably had been one before she died and un-died. I narrowed my eyes at her. She calls her that like three fucking times in the course of three pages. I was still trying to decide whether my negative reaction to Venus was because she was obviously a bitch, because she had been skulking around the tunnels with Erik, or because I had a bad feeling about the red fledglings in general when she spoke up.
The swing of this portrayal is a damn shame, too, because it could have gone very differently. Venus is the former roommate and best friend of Aphrodite, who died some time before the first book.
Presumably they were close, and one would think that seeing your former best friend alive and back to her old self would be something to be happy about, but the book has no tenderness to spare for them. Anyway, Zoey also takes this opportunity, mid arrow-removal, to reflect on her feelings for Stark.
His words still went round and round inside my head because I knew what none of the rest of them did, that it was impossible for Stark to miss his mark. His gift from Nyx had been that his aim was always true, that he always hit whatever it was he aimed at, even if that sometimes had horrible consequences.
Our Goddess had told me herself that once she gave a gift, she never took it back, so even though Stark had died and then come back as a twisted version of himself, he still would have hit her heart and killed Stevie Rae if that had been his intention.
Did you not hear me? Our heroine, ladies and gentleman. Stevie Rae bites her, and because vampire bites feel real good, it gets…kinda weird. Okay, yes. It was disturbing and nasty, but it was also weirdly erotic. I know it felt good—it had to. Wait what? Since when??? I thought the entire premise of the first book was that vampires were just spontaneously chosen by Nyx, Marked and shit, when did this happen?
And from observing what was going on with Stevie Rae and Aphrodite, it was clear that red vampyres definitely had the whole bring-your-human-pleasure phenomenon going. I mean, Aphrodite had even leaned suggestively into Darius, who wrapped an arm around her and bent to kiss her as Stevie Rae continued sucking on her wrist.
The kiss between the warrior and Aphrodite had so much sizzle to it I swear I could almost see sparks flying. Is this— is this about to turn into an orgy? Wait, is this the YA version of an orgy?

But she seems really into it, and you start to wonder what she's reading. I'd rather focus on the characters we were introduced to in season one. With all this came the added fact that she was having to find a way to put a stop to an immortal being who kept thinking that she was the Cherokee version of A-ya.
I'm getting really annoyed with this series. The potential is being pushed aside for stark.
