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.

My ThoughtsGreen swirlsYep,  you’re right.  I’ve been procrastinating on posting this review.  I’m a little torn… or at least I was.  I’ve had to think about it for a few days to decide exactly what I thought.  In the beginning I was so angry with tihs book that I wanted to throw it across the room in the hopes of hitting someone but I do not treat my books like that so that did not happen.  So then I sat and thought about WHY I felt like that and it dawned/donned (??) on me…. for a book to make me have that much emotion whether it be good or bad emotion must (obviously) mean that it was a good book right??  Absolutely!  

My emotions with each chapter kept rising and rising and rising.  I was furious at times and sad at others.  The ending I will warn you though is an incredible cliff-hanger.  So if you’re not into that sort of thing, you had better not read it, but the good news is that the next installment is right around the corner so you won’t have to wait long.  I hate cliff-hangers (normally), but in this particular case, I can see why it was done the way it was.  I’m just very happy and thankful that I don’t have to wait a year for the next one.  Usually they (books in a series such as this) end with some sort of closing so that you’re not left completely in the dark.  This one will make you want to scream because when you turn the page there is not another chapter, nor a sniff at the next book.  Very smart actually when you think about it.  The bookstores will be overrun with people buying up BURNED, which is the next installment.  Very smart indeed!  Hats off to Kristin & PC.
