I'll break down some of my biggest problems with the series as of now. Well, they're from different sides of the country, and they don't have the same color of skin. But there was also something dark about it—it had a forbidden air that drew a person inside and heated their blood. I am not sure if it is because I have read so many significantly better books in between the time I read the fifth and the sixth or if the quality of writing has just decreased that drastically, but the sixth House of Night was a complete disappointment. I also like Aphrodite and Darius together. I hope Neferet comes back and blows everyone up with some sort of magic-with-a-K diabolical fire power.
It's like being bitten by your child when you are all rolling on the floor laughing and hugging each other. The first time I saw my husband's best friend, I didn't like him. I am merely using the classroom setting to illustrate my disdain for this piece of shit. Please let him stay dead forever. I'll break down some of my biggest problems with the series as of now. And it needs to be said, I am dumber for having read the first six books in the House of Night series. She should have known better than to park in the shadows; she should be taking better care of herself.
Last book left us in chaos and in the depths of Zoey's Bermuda love triangle. In the least it's a huge lame soap opera. An ending in which Buffy the Vampire Slayer shows up and kills everyone in a hilarious yet incredibly violent fashion? So … In conclusion, I felt like my brain was being raped as I read this book. I am not the type to spend time talking the politics of a book, buuttttt I realize this book is filled with stereotypes. Instead of being a real couple, they've become a cute puppy sideshow.
I think it had the same intended affect. I'll just narrow it down, because I could rant about every stupid little plot twist but I won't. And, surprisingly, James didn't seem to mind. Eric has also suffered, as it seems the authors just got bored with him and turned him into a total control freak jerk to save the trouble of actually explaining why he's like that. Brown Noser: Cool, the next House of Night book is taking place in Italy.
I just dont get it? I'll just ask my friends if it gets worse or we'll just snark from the campus library. Contrary to what others say about this series, I think they're quite good. But if a guy cheats on her. You'd think that a student at a school that's so fantastic would be able to make her literate! I had been so excited for this book to come out, but I find I'm slightly let down with the lack of action. Aphrodite — has now joined team good guy — but only by debasing herself at every turn. She holds an important place in the church but she is not a deity. So yeah, the boy drama also really gets on my nerves.
Zoey is constantly cheating on him and yet his jealousy is in the wrong. Since Zoey is also taking care of the wounded boy Stark, her friend Stevie Ray does some of her roles. She then wonders if she should try to save him, even though he is still in cahoots with evil and powerful Neferet. I am merely using the classroom setting to illustrate my disdain for this piece of shit. I don't even understand why so many guys are obsessed with her, when she's such an annoying idiot! Zoey is so much worse then Aphrodite was at the beginning of the series. I was expecting this book to be wrapped in action and have this storm a brewing. Zoey Redbird is back in her full Mary-Sue glory.
We have zero sympathy for the rape victim, have demonised her and are outright blaming her for her victimisation for making a bad choice! Also count bees busy buzzing and the fresh wind blowing around- a perfect peaceful scene I can imagine that'll surely always take my breath away. Logically Zoey will get with Stark, because he's the only one who hasnt gotten or caused a broken heart yet. But I'm still glad that Zoey managed to overcome the temptation and still choose good over evil. It feels much better now that I have said that. It wasn't my favorite of the books … I can see it going downhill from here. I just cannot believe a series with such promise turned out like this, I could go on about all the ways I dislike Zoey but quite frankly this review will never end.
I was totally Blissed out that she finally dumped that asshat Eric, But I was just starting to like Heath! While that's all going on Stevie's secrets are piling up and causing more trouble then even she realizes. To view it, I put it down after 190 pages of nothing. There is a completely useless side-plot that distracts everything and is an obstacle; the series is starting to drag the plot line. The beginning of this book was hard for me to get through, though. And so Jesse had watched over her from afar, interfered in her life more times than he should have. Then, looking at Bracken and Zander, he saw the same dawning realization in their eyes.
Brown Noser: I was saying that. With her enemies quickly closing in, Cassie fights to keep her heart true and her soul pure. In fact, I only picked this 6th book which is so far, the book that has the highest sales. It is just really ridiculous, and drags me out of the plot everytime she says it. She probably did most of her research on Catholics from The Sound of Music. On the last episode of The Worst Thing Ever, we hit rock bottom when Zoey did a whole lot of nothing for dozens of pages, then allowed a serial rapist into her inner circle, and banished Kalona and Neferet with the power of love. Make your peace with God, everyone.
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. He arched a questioning brow at Bracken and Zander. They are all vampyres which means that they are all gorgeous and like Superman with their powers. Plus side : Finally finally finally there is no long winded recap of the previous books! Even the characters in the book think she is a hoe! If that weren't enough, her lover, Vlad, has been acting distant. Reminded me of the risks and all and will the plot actually go straight-forward instead of a detour and off the cliff? No guy with attached testicles and dignity is going to follow Zoey around like a puppy, catering to her and watching her make out with each of her boyfriends, then act like she is a victim and agree to sharing her with each of the guys. And both Heath and Stark. Not to mention that Zoey has just faced way bigger challenges than multiple boyfriends and somehow came out with flying colors.
