The plot dragged in Revealed. People who expect action from Aurox/Heath prepare to be disappointed ‘cos the Bull somehow becomes a docile creature this book . Shaylin’s character-building was good. I just wanna read the final book and put this series to an end.

The plot keeps thickening. I liked Stevie Rae’s amazing comeback and adorable Jack. Although Stark’s character could have had a little more build up before we all totally fall in love with the mysterious stranger. The gang finally gets bigger,better and awesome to kick some serious High-priestess ass 😉 , I mean “butt” if I am to stick with the vocab standards we are following here 😛

The series seems to be improving. The plot thickens, yet it doesn’t make the narrative any less bearable. I like that all the characters are being dug deep, like the softer side of Aphrodite and the nefarious side of Neferet.

This book was no better than the first in terms of the writing. *oh my god, the writing totally sucked, like seriously !

I hated the narrative. Way too much repetitive and contrived elements like dead-undead-ghost-freakish-things.

And clearly the authors intended us to get shocked by Stevie Rae’s transformation , which until the very end we are to believe as one of Zoey-I-have-every-possible-power-in-the-vampyre-world “special powers” to see ghosts.

One word – Ridiculus .

I could hardly tolerate this book. First of all calling the Raven mockers , bad bir- boys was utter nonsense. Second every female being attracted to the fallen angel was lecherous. The fact that Zoey even discusses the origins of this through her Grandma is disturbing. Finally after making such a big deal about how Zoeg is the one who can eliminate this Kalona immortal , the brandish him with poems of love ?! I mean how did the cynical Aphrodite even agree to this? This book is stupid.

I liked how the story ends in this completely unexpected cliffhanger. It was a nice change to see Zoey-girl-who-can-move-mountains become almost normal again. I loved the part with Darius and Aphrodite. Rephaim and Stark added reality and groundedness to the story that none of the other ‘nerd-herd’ of Zoey’s could do in the previous five books.
I hope the story moves a little faster in the future books . I can’t deal with the boyfriend drama.

This book was an original idea that could’ve been molded better. I liked the overall plot and the rendition of P.C.Cast.

Since it was my first time with the author (I haven’t read House of Night series, thus I can’t say) I had no expectations, but it was a pleasant surprise when the book kept me hooked on.

The sweet passion between Dylon and Christine was nothing unique but it left me feeling warm and cosy on the inside. The portions where CC ( cool nickname for Christine Canday btw) refers to “from where I come…” are quite funny.

At times it did seem like all the Earth mother God did was look after the one “spirit” child. I’m sure Gaea has much better and more important things to do that answer every whim and fancy of the child [and sometimes even the much sensible and admired Dylon 😦 😦 ]

I mean, it’s not like the end of the world is it ? :/
I guess I would still stick with the series…I hope the other books will have the same kind of romance but a tad bid more of plot in them.

Finally a good book from the House of Night series that is worthy of the time we spend reading it!

Burned was way better than the first 6 books (I can’t believe it took P.C.Cast 7 books to finally get it right!! ) in aspects like plot, narration and character depth.Every character was given a significant role in this book; even annoying ones like Heath.

I felt connected to what transpired in the ‘Otherworld’ between Heath and Zoey and could at last see what Zoey saw in that cute boyish self.

The plot was a hundred times better in this book; what with delving deeper into ancient magic and revealing elements of eternal balance viz. Light and Darkness was a good way to go.

I found it a little hard to follow the name and ways of the Queen of Isle of Women but I’m hoping we will get to know her better in the forthcoming books.

I don’t understand the part where the Queen takes Aphrodite’s bitchy-ness in a comical light-heartedness. C’mon a Queen who has been isolated from the rest of the world for ages, surrounded by the Best of the Best warriors taking sh*t from a teenage mortal girl ? Didn’t work for me.

Please continue this way and reduce the boyfriend drama and the stupid self obsession of Zoey. Let her grow and mature and act that way.

I do hope Rephaim chooses the good side and fights in Zoey’s battle against Kalona. Stevie Rae and Rephaim make such a good pair!!

I loved the balance of love, hatred, wit and plot twists this book had and hope this continues till the end of the series.

Miss goody-shoes Zoey Redbird , can do no wrong and is hailed as the chosen one, next only to a Goddess. As Aphrodite puts , Zoey and her ‘Herd of Nerds’ must save the day by stopping nefarious Neferet.

It is sickening to read about Neferet’s ‘supplicants’ and her slithering babies of Darkness; the word ‘worship’ has been repeated so many times that it almost lost all meaning in my head. Neferet is amateurish when it comes to being a Goddess. I didn’t enjoy it.
