Book Description

What if the hottest guy in the world was hiding a nameless evil and all he wanted was you?

At the start of this heart-pounding new installment of the bestselling House of Night series, Zoey’s friends have her back again and Stevie Rae and the red fledglings aren’t Neferet’s secrets any longer.  But an unexpected danger has emerged. Neferet guards her powerful new consort, Kalona, and no one at the House of Night seems to understand the threat he poses.  Kalona looks gorgeous, and he has the House of Night under his spell. A past life holds the key to breaking his rapidly spreading influence, but what if this past life shows Zoey secrets she doesn’t want to hear and truths she can’t face?

On the run and holed up in Tulsa’s Prohibition-era tunnels, Zoey and her gang must discover a way to deal with something that might bring them all down.  Meanwhile, Zoey has a few other little problems.  The red fledglings have cleaned up well–they’ve even managed to make the dark, creepy tunnels feel more like home–but are they really as friendly as they seem?  On the boyfriend front, Zoey has a chance to make things right with super-hot ex-, Eric, but she can’t stop thinking about Stark, the archer who died in her arms after one unforgettable night, and she is driven to try to save him from Neferet’s sinister influence at all costs.  Will anyone believe the power evil has to hide among us?

I am not going to bother telling you want these books are about, hence the book description is being provided for you.  Either you know or you don’t.  If you don’t, you probably don’t care to know and for that I applaud you.  I can’t begin to say how pathetic this series is.  The writing is horrible.  The premise, while should be exciting, is decidedly not.  The weird romantic…uh…quadrangle (?) is ridiculous.  The totally idiotic use of teenage vernacular almost dates the books before they even come out.

And I can’t stop reading these.

It’s insane.  I hate them.  Absolutely despise them.  But I just have to know WHAT HAPPENS NEXT. 

I’m pathetic.  And I’ll keep torturing myself.  At least for one more book.

And, PS, the full pull-out poster of Zoey is hilarious.  Serious.  Gut-splitting laughter.  Is it for the GUY READERS of the series?  Because seriously?  What girl is going to put that on her wall?

  1. I hate it when this happens. Thankfully, the awfulness of a bad but catchy series reaches critical mass eventually, usually resulting in me throwing them across the room.

  2. So, are you saying, that if I've just read the first one, I should stop now? Or should I jump in and drive myself crazy too?

  3. Lol! I could have written this post down to the last word of it! I've been debating buying "Hunted" since it came out. On one hand, I want to know what happens, but on the other, I'm not sure I want to spend my money on the next book again! We'll see!

  4. Um…well…if you ever want to feel a little crazy…yeah…you could keep going. If you want. But don't buy them. Heavens, do NOT buy them! lol

  5. How funny! I just finished reading this book myself. And I love them….for the trite crap they are!! I'm with you, I just can't help myself from reading them!! I've actually enjoyed them though. Did you notice in this one though, the typos? Like the use of Damian's name instead of Darius?? Talk about annoying the crap out of my anal self!!

  6. I've been enjoying your blog but just had to respond to this post because I'm on book three of this series and you're right about how awful the writing is — but I'm stuck because I feel like I just have to know what happens! But I cringe reading them — I'm stuck –sigh. And it was just so nice to hear you put my feelings into words so much better then I ever could have done 🙂
