REVEW: Tempted by P.C. and Kristen Cast


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 when one of them is a sexy Warrior who is so into protecting Zoey that he can sense her emotions. Speaking of stress, the dark force lurking in the tunnels under the Tulsa Depot is spreading, and Zoey is beginning to believe Stevie Rae could be responsible for a lot more than a group of misfit red fledglings. Aphrodite’s visions warn Zoey to stay away from Kalona and his dark allure, but they also show that it is Zoey who has the power to stop the evil immortal. Soon it becomes obvious that Zoey has no choice: if she doesn’t go to Kalona he will exact a fiery vengeance on those closest to her. Will Zoey have the courage to chance losing her life, her heart, and her soul? Find out in the next spectacular installment in the House of Night series, TEMPTED.  (Summary from the House Of Night website.)

My thoughts... Once again, I am drawn back into the House Of Night.  This book, like the others was jam packed with drama, intensity, angst, and desire.  Book 6 in the series picks up right where Hunted left off.  It was very easy to jump right into the story and read right to the end. All of my favorite characters were there and this time, the point of view switches, mainly between Zoe and Stevie Ray, but we do get a glimpse into the minds of several other characters.  I did not find this distracting, but helpful.  There would be no way to see what was going on if we only had Zoe's perspective.  Zoe deals with some of her boy issues (for better or worse) and  readers get more of the red fledglings, Kalona, and the sexy Stark. 

This whole book covers the span of about three days, without any major events until the end.  I don't want to give away any spoilers, but I will say the book leaves you hanging, no dangling on a thread.   April 27th, which is the release date for Burned,  can not come fast enough.  I enjoyed the story even though it was over so quickly.  Some of the character's actions were frustrating at times, and I some of the language was immature.  These kids are supposed to be coming of age and dealing the situations they encountered should call for some words stronger than "poopie".  The book continues to explore the legend of Aya and the Cherokee people, which I enjoy.  I would have liked to see more lovey scenes, but there really just wasn't time for it.  The end was just so shocking, so devastating that I nearly cried.  House of Night fans won't want to miss this one!
