Review: Tempted by P.C. and Kristin Cast

Series: House of Night 6
Format: Hardcover
ExcerptRelease Date: October 23, 2009
Purchase: Amazon
Zoey needs a break after some serious excitement. Sadly, the House of Night school for vampyres doesn’t feature breaks on its curriculum—even for a High Priestess in training and her gang. Plus juggling three guys is no stress reliever, especially when one is a sexy Warrior so into protecting Zoey that he’s sensing her emotions. Wider stresses lurk too, and the dark force in Tulsa’s tunnels is spreading. Could Stevie Rae be responsible for more than a group of misfit fledglings? And Aphrodite’s visions warn Zoey to stay away from the immortal Kalona and his dark allure—but they also show that only Zoey can stop him. She’s not exactly keen to meet up, but if Zoey doesn’t go to Kalona he’ll exact a fiery vengeance on those closest to her. She just has to find the courage to do what’s necessary, or everything that’s important to her will be destroyed.
This has got to be the most dramatic book in the series so far! Why? Because a couple of people DIED in this book! And there's nothing more exciting than an author gutting out the cast of characters don't you think? I'm not going to say who these people are but suffice to say that you've gotten invested with these characters up to this point so you'll really feel their loss.

Now I really want to Gush about the villainous Neferet, in this post. I love book villains, they have that unique ability to make the heroes worthy of their title. They can even make you empathize with the lead characters' frustration, fear and a myriad of other feelings. Neferet is like that. You'll really hate her and she makes you want to smack silly everyone in the book for falling into her wiles and traps. Her looks alone will make you do her bidding and her melodious voice is a spell in itself. On top of that, she's one smart and tough cookie which makes her a formidable foe to our heroes.
So after Hunted, I was thinking that a long series is bound to unravel at some point. I'm glad that Tempted ended with a big bang! I'm still not raving about the first 30 chapters but Chapters 31-40 really did the trick for me. I hope that Burned won't drag and focus too much on the deaths of some characters.
