Hunted (House of Night, Book 5) (Hardcover)

by P. C. Cast (Author), Kristin Cast (Author)

Praise for The House of Night:

“Zoey Redbird's first-person adventures take on added danger and importance in the latest House of Night release. Forced by circumstance to grow up quickly, Zoey's emotional and spiritual evolution is fascinating. The Cast duo breathes life and vibrancy into the characters and makes each one an integral part of the saga. Awesome and unforgettable as always!” --Romantic Times (4.5 stars) on Hunted

“Teenage issues can seem like life or death, but in this haunting series, House of Night, that’s really the case. Through Zoey’s eyes readers are led into a world that’s getting more complicated by the minute, where friends and enemies can switch positions in a heartbeat. The remarkable Cast duo continues to build a world that you won’t soon forget!” –Romantic Times (4.5 stars) on Chosen
“This highly addicting series offers a unique twist on the standard vampyre story....These books will have the reader laughing hysterically and sobbing unreservedly –sometimes all at once.”
–VOYA on both Marked and Betrayed “Marked is one of the best coming of age stories to come out of Oklahoma since S. E. Hinton’s The Outsiders. It teaches about the beauty of being a social outcast, friendship, and finding your own inner spirituality.” –The Beltane Papers “Readers will identify with many of the characters, especially the protagonist.” –Library Journal on Marked

Product 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?

Well, I was looking forward to this book and was left underwhelmed. I am so tired of Heath that I was actually happy when "something" attacked him. I was really happy in the last book when he grew up and realized that there is more to life than Zoey and now he is back to square one with the whole "it's just you and me" crap. The thing between Aphrodite and Stevie Ray was entertaining and unexpected and I am interested to see how Darius and Aphrodite's relationship continues with Aph being a human. I guess if they can work it out then Zoey and Annoying loverboy can work it out but I really hope not. Stark also pleasantly surprised me with his conflicts and redemption although he did deserve a nice butt kicking for the bad thing he did. It was a good book but I guess it has too many elements of high school drama for me to really love it since I am a sophomore in college and hated HS drama with a passion and I have had issues with that in the other books also. and the one thing that really got under my skin was one word...Susancompton...which should have been two and I get the whole 'it sounding like she said the two words as one' but it was not needed and an annoyance.
