Burned by P.C. & Kristin Cast
Zoey Redbird is the youngest High Priestess in House of Night history and is the only person – vamp or fledgling – that can stop the evil Neferet from raising all kinds of immortal trouble. And she might just have a chance if she wasn’t so busy being dead.
Well, dead is too strong a word. Stevie Rae knows she can bring her BFF back from her unscheduled va-cay in the Otherworld. But it’s going to take a lot more than hoping to bring Zoey back. Stevie Rae will have to give up a few secrets of her own . . .
I bought Burned by P.C. & Kristin Cast (House of Night book 7) earlier this week for My Lavender Kobo. I have read all of the House of Night books and had big hopes for Burned. And boy did it live up to them! I imagine it would be hard to keep all those details straight! The story begins where Tempted ends. Zoey's spirit is shattered when she witnesses Kalona killing her human Consort, Heath. Zoey, Stark, Stevie Rae, Aphrodite and even Kalona tell their parts of the story, and I must admit that I found it a little distracting. Why change? The first 4 or 5 books were told from Zoeys point of view. BUT I did find by the end of the book that I liked knowing what Stark and the others thought and felt. Over all I was pleased with the book. And I can't wait to start Awakened!
